Self-Mutilations, Colletti & Pedophile Bishop
Dear friends of TIA,
The wickedness of our times is reaching a catastrophic level.
is in Spanish but I'm pretty sure Chrome has an automatic translator. If you make a right click on any part of the text, you can choose "translate to English" and see a very bad translation, but better than nothing.
Anyway, this article talks about the "trans-disabled." People who mutilate themselves in order to get rid of some body part that they "feel" are not part of their bodies.
I'm pretty sure that this has a Satanic influence behind it and that it was a common practice in paganism: cf. 1 Kings 18, 28
Article on Fr. Colletti
L.M. and I just discovered the
article about Fr. Colletti
and it is very upsetting.
I think you discerned something long ago when you spoke of his toupee and other things and here it is a very serious matter.
Thanks to Patrick for this article.
Prayers for all,
In Our Lady,
Patrick Odou on Fr. Joseph Colletti
by Patrick Odou on Fr. Joseph Colletti, accused of abuse.
One statement of Mr. Odou's could use a little addition. He wrote: One of the many crises caused by the Second Vatican Council is the current “pedophile priests crisis” that has rocked the Church from top to bottom. True, the pedophile priests crisis has rocked the Church, and the Church since Vatican II has been lax until recently in dealing with this scandal.
But Vatican II did not cause the crisis. Read
by Leon Podles, a terrific book on the priestly abuse crisis. Mr. Podles documents abuse cases in El Paso, Texas, around 1950 and in Davenport, Iowa, just a few years later.
With Vatican II, the guard came down, but before the Council things were far from perfect.
Tree of Crosses & Fr. Margil
I have been reading on your website about the Spanish missions and I have discovered
I am now a devotee. Are there any
or relic cards of him? I read about the
Tree of Crosses
, is there a person to contact to obtain 2 thorns, I would like one to venerate one and have one as a gift for a FSSP priest who is opening a new mission.
Reading your articles has been very inspiring...
Saint James the
(Muslim killer), pray for us!
We are glad you discovered the extraordinary Franciscan missionary priest Ven. Padre Antonio Margil.
Unfortunately, we do not have prayers cards or relics available at TIA. We suggest you inquire
at the recently reinstated Margil House of Studies.

Just for your interest: you may have noticed that the
has a peculiar feature. If one looks carefully, it can be seen that the images in the circles are all upside down. This was done intentionally by the medieval artist.
We could say there was method in his madness. For, as the deacon sang the text, he would "feed" the long scroll over the edge of the ambo, so that those who were in front of him could see the pictures which would then be the right way up.

Getting to the Top
I am writing to you from our new international offices located in a 'cell' (15' x 8') in the top floor above the residence of Immaculate Conception Convent, Cincinnati, Ohio... We thank you daily for your help over the many years in getting us 'to the top'.
Our liberation and resistance intense work here was not able to be in East Cleveland for the festivities this year. However, Mr. S.K. went on his own; he assists at St. Therese Chapel Soc. St. Pius V in Parma, Ohio.
He is from Pakistan. He is from a family of Catholics driven out by Mohammedanism and some who apply it... He lost all.
Hit & Run Bishop Accused of Sexual Abuse
If you have a copy of
The Rite of Sodomy
, you can find background on Bishop O’Brien in Vol. III, Chapter 11, “The Bishops’ Bureaucracy and the Homosexual Revolution.”
If you don’t have a copy of the five-volume set, you may want to order it as a reference before hard copies run out.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
Ex-Catholic bishop of Phoenix accused of sex abuse of boy
Phoenix – A former bishop who led the Roman Catholic Church in metro Phoenix during a worldwide child sexual abuse scandal has been accused of molesting a young boy 35 years ago.
Retired Bishop Thomas O'Brien is accused in a lawsuit of sexually abusing the boy on several occasions at parishes in Phoenix and Goodyear from 1977 to 1982. The Diocese of Phoenix says O'Brien denies the allegation.
O'Brien, now 81, led the diocese in Phoenix as it became embroiled in a global scandal that rocked the Catholic Church after allegations surfaced in Boston about pedophile priests going unpunished.
The bishop acknowledged in a 2003 immunity deal that he let Church employees accused of sex abuse continue to have contact with children. Weeks after the deal, O'Brien resigned as bishop after he was arrested in the hit-and-run death of a pedestrian.
O'Brien's accuser says the clergyman sexually abused him when he was a child and he had suppressed his memories of it, said Tim Hale, his lawyer.
The accuser, who is now 47 and lives in the Tucson area, started having flashbacks of the abuse in September 2014 when preparing for his son's baptism into the Catholic Church, Hale said.
"It has turned his life upside down," Hale said, explaining that his client has suffered profound emotional distress.
Hale said his client's allegation is being investigated by the Phoenix Police Department, which refused to comment.
The diocese issued a statement saying O'Brien denies the accusation and that he was never assigned to the schools and parishes where the abuse is alleged to have occurred. The statement also said the diocese informed prosecutors about the allegation immediately after learning of it in September 2016.
O'Brien's 2003 immunity agreement said a grand jury investigating Church sex abuse allegations at the time didn't find evidence that the bishop had engaged in sexual misconduct.
Amanda Jacinto, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, said the immunity deal will remain in place, meaning the bishop could not be prosecuted for letting Church employees suspected of sex abuse be around children.
But Jacinto said the agreement would not prevent prosecutors from bringing a case against O'Brien if there's evidence that he sexually abused a child.
O'Brien, who served as Phoenix's bishop for 21 years, resigned in June 2003 after being accused of striking and killing 43-year-old Jim Reed with his car.
The bishop didn't stop to help Reed or report the accident to police but told investigators that he didn't realize he had hit a person.
He said he thought he had hit a dog or cat or that someone had thrown a rock at his car. Prosecutors said O'Brien tried to have his windshield fixed.
He was sentenced to probation and 1,000 hours of community service after being convicted of leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
John C. Kelly, an attorney representing the Diocese of Phoenix, declined to comment on the lawsuit and the allegations against O'Brien.
