As you may have heard, a Catholic pro-life student group going home after the March for Life got stuck on the highway.
With tons of time and not much to do, they did something incredible: they build an altar out of snow and had Mass on the side of the highway! Some people nicknamed the spot the St. John Paul the Great hillside chapel.
Bad weather can’t stop the Mass!
Here are a bunch of photos of this incredible event:
At the annual meeting in 2013, the Italian exorcist Father Bamonte gave a remarkable speech. He said: “A repeating in feature in exorcisms is the insistent demand of the demon, that men ought to worship him as if he were God. The demon who will not accept his creatureness, dangles himself pretending to be God, and he is greedily keen that people offer to him a cult which belongs to God alone. During the exorcism, he often says, ‘Pray to me, pray to me, I am God, I am God! Kneel down, when my name is called. I am all-powerful! Call me! ‘ On these statements I reply, with No. 20 of the Roman Ritual (titulus XII “De exorcizandis obsessis a doemonio”) which recommends the words of Jesus in the desert and the words of the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Philippians.
The Devil Wants to be Worshiped: “I am God!”
“I Try to Eat the Children” – Abortion and Sexual Seduction
The Perverts and Scoffers: “Come Unto Me, All Ye That are Funny and Perverted”
“The Hatred of People Nourishes Me”
The Power of Prayer and the Sacred Liturgy
In an exorcism, the demon had to admit, “apparently forced by God” and say, “If you people live on your knees before Him and worship Him and would sing His praise, as do the angels, we would not have all the power, which you give to us about you. “

Borg in-Nadur apparitions of the Virgin Mary ‘not divine in origin,’ Curia says
Self-styled mystic Angelik Caruana, a father of four who works as a receptionist at a home for the elderly in Floriana, attracted a group of followers when he claimed that a statue of the Virgin in his home was weeping tears of blood and oozing oil.
NASA has called the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe living
NASA has publicized the results of the related examination of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
It was established, with instruments of the eye-specialist, that in the picture, the eyes of Mary’s retinas, when exposed to light – similar to the human’s eye – expand and contract. The researchers have also concluded that the temperature of the cloth, where the image can be observed, is permanently 36.6 degrees, such as a healthy human’s body temperature. The image has also been examined with a stethoscope. The scientists have measured a pulse of 115 beats/min at Mary’s belt which corresponds with the number of a fetal heart rate.
NASA engineers have also stated the paint with which the image was made does not exist on Earth and has never existed – written by the Tsn.ua which is a news site on the internet.
In the beginning of the 20th century a bomb was detonated next to the image. As a result of this, everything was destroyed in a large circular radius, the image, however, remained intact.
The Holy Virgin, according to records, appeared to an Indian, Juan Diego, in the winter of 1531, on the mountain of Tepeyac, near Mexico City to the north. The records shows that a woman appeared in a gold fog and called upon the man to “go to the bishop […] I want a church to be built on this place!” The bishop did not believe Juan Diego and the meeting repeated itself the next day. Diego went to the bishop for the second time. The bishop said that he would believe that the Blessed Mother had appeared if he brought a sign. Diego met again with the Blessed Mother who sent him up to the hilltop where he found blossoming roses despite the season. Juan Diegon gathered the roses into his simple rob and took them to Zumarraga bishop. The chief priest fell down to his knees before the sight: the poor clothing, a tilma (loose robe) of the indigenous man changed into the portrait of Our Lady. The Cathedral of Our Lady was built at that place where Diego’s tilma is still guarded today.
Aldofo Orozco, research physicist, reports that there is no scientific explanation for the still surviving tilma. Over 10 years similar cloths become ruined by the local moist, salty air. The copy, for example, which was made using the most advanced technology in 1789 was placed behind protective glass, totally faded over 8 years. In contrast to the original, unprotected tilma which has not been damaged after more than a hundred years by the UV-rays, the moist, salty air and the tens of thousands of lit candles near the image.
The original image attracts crowds of pilgrims: the basilica which guards the icon is said to be the most visited pilgrimage in the world. According to data of Mexico City, in 2004, ten million pilgrims were welcomed only between 9th December and 12th December. The numbers of the visitors reach twenty millions throughout the year.

The Black Madonna, the God Mother appeared at the apparition in Guadalupe. Since her skin color was darker, so the church proclaims the bronze faced Mary. The local population, however, are clear of the fact that the God Mother appeared personally. In fact, God’s pair, the God Mother appeared in this wonderful place.
How strange that the differences between God Mother and Virgin Mary have been attempted to be kept in secret. Since, if it comes to light, the foundations of belief will be shaken fundamentally.
I have written in greater detail about the Black Madonna, God Mother and the complete functioning of the spirit world in my new book, called:
THE BIGGEST SECRET: TRUTH

Alexis Carrel was born into a Catholic family in a small town in France in 1873. He attended Mass regularly and went to Catholic schools run by Jesuits. Unfortunately, by the time he went to college he was an agnostic. He completely rejected the Catholic faith and wasn’t even sure if there was a God.
However, he wouldn’t stay that way. And an extraordinary miracle from Lourdes helped lead him back.

As an agnostic, Carrel studied biology and medicine and went on to become a world famous scientist. He developed a way to allow organs to live outside the body, a huge step toward organ transplants, and he developed new techniques for cleaning wounds. Most importantly, though, he invented techniques for suturing large blood vessels, which earned him a Nobel Prize in 1912.
This is why his opinion about alleged miracles at Lourdes mattered so much.
Although the original apparitions at Lourdes had occurred in 1858, people in the early 20th century (as they are today) were still claiming to be cured by the water there. Despite the large number of alleged cures, the French medical establishment was firmly against the possibility that anything supernatural was happening.
Carrel himself was also a strong skeptic. That is, until he met a girl named Marie Bailly.
He was on a train to Lourdes with a doctor friend to see the hysteria for himself in 1902 when he came across Bailly, who apparently had something called tuberculous peritonitis. It was a fatal disease. She was only half-conscious and had a swelled belly. Trying to help, Carrel gave her morphine, but said he didn’t think she’d even survive the rest of the trip to Lourdes. Other doctors on the train came to the same conclusion.
When they arrived, her friends carried her to the grotto, and three pitchers of water from Lourdes was poured on her. With each pour, she said felt a searing pain throughout her body. To the amazement of the doctors present, her belly started to flatten back to a normal size almost immediately and her pulse returned to a normal rate.
By that evening, she was well enough to eat a normal dinner.
The scientist in Carrel didn’t know what to make of it all. He had to admit that everything he knew about medicine made it seem like her cure was indeed miraculous. But he knew that publicly claiming to have witnessed a miracle would ruin his career. So he just stayed quiet about it all. He didn’t even want people to know he had gone to Lourdes.
However, Bailly’s cure quickly became national news. News outlets reported that Carrel had been present, but that he didn’t think there was anything miraculous about what happened. This wasn’t exactly accurate, so he was forced to publish a public reply. In it, he scolded religious believers for generally being too quick to claim something unusual was miraculous, but he also criticized the medical establishment for ruling out the possibility of miracles, saying that Bailly may indeed have been cured miraculously.
This was a public scandal! How could someone so steeped in science and so accomplished in medicine say that Bailly’s cure might have been miraculous? His career in France was over. Unable to work in hospitals any longer, he moved to Canada, and eventually the United States. He joined the Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research in New York and spent the rest of his career there. (Marie Bailly, for her part, joined a convent.)
So he had been convinced the woman’s cure could have been miraculous – what did that mean for him spiritually?
He didn’t know what to do with it exactly, since fully admitting to himself that he had witnessed a true miracle at Lourdes would require him to rethink his religious beliefs (or lack thereof).
It took him 25 years of working it out in his heart and mind, but finally, in 1939, he decided to meet with a Catholic priest in order to seriously consider returning to the Church. They became friends, and three years later he announced, “I believe in the existence of God, in the immortality of the soul, in Revelation and in all the Catholic Church teaches.”
And just two years after that, he died. But not without receiving Last Rites on his deathbed.
God had brought him back just in time.
Pray for Alexis Carrel, may he rest in peace!
