President Bolsonaro Consecrates Brazil to Sacred Heart

At this very moment, in Brasilia, the consecration of the largest Latin American country to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is taking place.

(Brasilia) Brazil is having a great day today. [Yesterday] But that is not the case everywhere. If not in the Apostolic Palace, at least in Santa Marta, the Vatican has other concerns: universal brotherhood, climate change, a right to unlimited migration, and more recently, rejection of the sovereignty movement. This does not only apply to the US and, because of the upcoming elections, above all the EU, but also Brazil. There today President Bolsonaro consecrates his country to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. But the Episcopal Conference and Santa Marta signaled lack of interest and the official Catholic media keep the consecration under wraps.

Pope Francis would have liked to continue to see the Labor Party (PT) in power in Brazil, but it failed because of its own corruption. Jair Bolsonaro was elected as the new Head of State and Government last autumn. His coalition consists of several decidedly Christian parties, some of them are evangelicals. He is a Catholic, but married to a free-church member. In Brazil, it may therefore happen that the Head of State and Government quoted a Bible verse on Twitter. This morning President Bolsonaro welcomed the Brazilians with the tweet:

"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32. This message is always ahead of our mission. Good morning everyone!
Marian Consecration of Brazil, May 21, 2019

This Twitter message is related to the particularity of today. Today, at 7 pm Central European Time, the consecration of Brazil to the Immaculate Heart of Mary took place in the federal capital Brasilia. It took place not only in the presence of President Bolsonaro, but directly in the Presidential Palace. President Bolsonaro gave the act of consecration the mark of highest state authority by his signature.

The consecration is, regrettably, not an act of the Brazilian Bishops' Conference, but goes back to the initiative of the Catholic laity. The consecration was performed by Don Fernando Areas Rifan, the Apostolic Administrator of the Apostolic Personal Administration of St. John Maria Vianney. The Apostolic Personnel Administration, which is the world's only de facto diocese in the traditional rite.

The driving force of the consecration are the Marian Congregation and other Catholic organizations, as well as the Frente Parlamentario Catolico, in which Catholic federal MPs have joined forces.

Initiative by two members of parliament

The idea itself comes from the two deputies Chris Tonietto and Eros Biondini. They emphasized that the consecration was also and precisely a state act, with which the whole country was consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The veterinarian Biondini, who also studied political science at the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, became famous in Brazil for the country's largest Catholic music event, which he launched and organized. The now 48-year-old moderated a few years a music program of the Catholic TV channel TV Canção Nova. In 2006 he was elected deputy of his native country Minas Gerais. Since 2010 he has been a member of the Brazilian Federal Parliament. The main focuses of his parliamentary work include the political renewal of Brazil, the resistance against attempts to make the hypothesis of allegedly human-induced climate change, or the idea of ​​"controlling the climate,” the basis of politics, instead he wants to focus on the strengthening of the family and the protection of unborn children. In 2017, he voted in favor of the law criminalizing the killing of unborn children.

Chris Tonietto with President Bolsonaro

Christine "Chris" Nogueira do Reis Tonietto is a lawyer and member of the Catholic Cultural Center Don Bosco. She became known in 2017 for her initiative against insulting the Catholic Church and the Catholic faith in the Brazilian YouTube comedy Port dos Fundos. In the parliamentary elections in October 2018, she was elected a member of the Federal Parliament. Her broadcasts and Twitter messages ended her mostly with "Viva Cristo Rei!" (High live Christ king).

Tonietto wrote on Twitter today:

"We will be there with the entire group of Catholic MPs to which I belong. We express our deepest support and pray to God to bless our beloved Brazil, the land of the Holy Cross!”

When the governor of Alabama signed the Abortion Abolition Act, Tonietto wrote on Twitter on May 16:

"A big day for the right to life."

On May 17, she was able to further spread the message of  the next strengthening of the right to life of unborn children:

"With a 66-vote lead, the Missouri State legislature voted for several abortion laws that severely curtail this shameful practice in this state."

Tonietto supports the initiative of President Bolsonaro, who recommends the "anti-communist catechism" of the Steyler Missionary and Archbishop of Diamantina, Geraldo de Proença Sigaud, who died in 1999, to those who say they are Catholic but defend communism. During the Second Vatican Council, Archbishop Sigaud belonged to Coetus Internationalis Patrum and was considered in Brazil as the fiercest opponent of Helder Camara, the archbishop of Olinda and Recife.

Cool disposotion taken by Episcopal Conference and Santa Marta

The Brazilian Bishops' Conference, which has long been inspired by the liberation theology, behaves coldly towards the new head of state, especially since Pope Francis clearly expressed his sympathies (and antipathies). They are silent on the  Consecration to Mary. Nothing can be heard from Rome of the cordiality with which Francis thought of the two former Presidents Luis Inacio Lula da Silva and Dilma Rousseff of the Labor Party. Lula da Silva, sentenced to twelve years in prison for corruption, even received a statement of solidarity in prison from the pope.

Instead of looking forward to having Catholic interlocutors among the deputies, the Episcopal Conference and Santa Marta refer to allied journalists of the Pinprick Initiative. The discussion was, openly or suggestively, about “political abuse" of religion.

Because the President of the Republic dedicates his land to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? Because Catholic MPs had the idea for this consecration and put it into action?

The politicization of the Church leads to worrying dead ends, is how episcopal reactions to the consecration of Brazil to Mary go.

Nevertheless, the consecration is a great day for Brazil.

Whoever wants to spread the word about the Consecration, has the opportunity to do so, among other things via the Twitter hashtag #OrePeloBrasil (pray for Brazil).

Brazilians are a unique people. By their very nature, there is a great deal of multi ethnicity within the culture. When the pope divided the new world between Spain and Portugal, a line was drawn of which Brazil became part of the Portuguese sphere of influence.--- That is why they alone speak Portuguese in the new world. The multi ethnicity comes unfortunately from the African slavery which was pushed by Portugal and not by Spain. They wanted to enclave the Indians which didn't work.---Strangely, Boston has a lot of Portuguese. Humberto Cardinal Medeiros was Portuguese in Boston. Sadly, he was the one who set the abuse crisis in motion by sending chaplains (Geoghan, Shanley) into the gay community.--- The response was the same as for worker priests. Worker priests became Communist after being immersed in the culture. The "Boston Globe" chronicled the sad descent into hell. Bernie Law was then sent in to right the ship. He made a valiant effort but only threw holy water on an addiction. It is now known that there is no reform of any type of addict without treatment and a withdrawal stage.

The hierarchy, evidently, have much better things to do than getting involved in consecrating a country to Our Lady. But at least we should be pleased ( as not to be mislead) they continue to show us exactly where they stand, i.e, on the side of the worldly power, not heavenly. Laity leadership must expand in the wake of our shepherds abandoning their flocks.

The Holy City coming down

The name of Brazil is shortened from 'Terra do Brasil' - "land of brazilwood" and comes from the Portuguese word 'brasa' - 'ember'. This tree, pau-brasil, common on the Atlantic coast, is a valued raw material for obtaining the red dye 'brazilin' - 'red like an ember'. The name of the capital of this country 'Brasilia' is the feminine form of Brazil. Thus, in this country meet two forms of the ember: feminine and masculine. Interesting, is it? The construction of Brasil in the open field began in 1956 and on April 21, 1960, Juscelino Kubitschek, then president of the state, has already inaugurated the new capital. It happened on Thursday, the 5th day of the Easter' octave. In the Church, the Gospel was read [John 20, 1-18] about the meeting of Mary Magdalene with a stranger Gardener and resurrected Jesus, who asked her not to touch Him, because He had not yet joined the Father. We know otherwise that after joining the Father, Jesus will send us another Comforter, the Paraclete. His prefiguration is this unknown Gardener who appears in place of Jesus Christ as an athlete who receives from Him the baton in relay race (for millennia).
Although Aparecida reigns in the capital cathedral of Brasilia, the Portuguese-speaking president dedicated the entire state to the Immaculate Heart of Mary not in the cathedral, but in his Presidential Palace (el Palacio de Planalto) in front of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima, after all coming from Portugal ( ). Why? Look at this Immaculate Heart: it is burning, red as ember. This heart is outside, next to the heart of the Virgin, because it is the heart of another person! What other person? A heart by heart, so close only between neighbors, but closest only in a marital relationship. This Heart-Ember belongs to the Paraclete, the mystical spouse of the Blessed Virgin. The miracle of the Sun in Fatima is the harbinger of the Paraclete, the Second Comforter, whom we will be able to touch, just as when the Lord Jesus wandered in Palestine. This is one of the many Sons of our Mother, the Holy Church. The announcement (see photo above) reads: 'Com o presidente Jair Bolsonaro' ('With the president...'). Nope, the Brazilian president is not that Heart. He is just a prefiguration of the Paraclete, his names explain this: 'Jair Messias' = 'Shining Anointed' = 'Anointed Brasa' = 'Anointed Ember' or the 'Anointed Fire'. This is the Fire that our Lord Jesus Christ wanted to throw upon the earth. .... [to be continued]

Our Lady of Fatima appears (in this post of Chris Tonietto; photo above) against the national flag of Brazil 'A Auriverde' ('gold - green'). Of the 27 stars visible upon it (there on an outstretched bandeira) representing the 27 states of the Federation, two belong to the group of the 4 Royal Stars: Spica and Antares. Spica (= the Ear) in the constellation Virgo represents the Virgin Mary Herself, while Antares is rightly called the heart of the Scorpion, because Scorpio is a clever pictogram signifying conversion. Whose conversion? Of Serpentarius (Ophiuchus) who stands on it (scorpion). Who is he converting to? To the Virgin, because She is His Lady and Queen, His mystical legitimate Spouse. Antares = Ant-Aries means Second (Other) Lamb. The first Lamb (Aries), Jesus Christ, is represented on the firmament by the planet Mars. Antares and Mars are so similar to each other as twins brothers. The Second Lamb (Ant-Aries) is the 'Anointed Fire'. The Gemini (The Twins) constellation represents them both: Castor = Jesus Christus, Pollux = Paraclete. When the Queen of Heaven and Earth reveals to the Church and the world Her beloved One, Her Immaculate Heart, then we will understand the words of the Holy Bible [Romans 8, 19]: 'For the creation waits with longing for the manifestation of the sons of God.' The plural begins with two - the second one is the Paraclete.
President Bolsonaro starts each day with words from the Gospel of Saint John: "And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free." [John 8, 32]. He did the same on May 21, 2019, when he consecrated Brazil, the state of which he is the head, to the rightful rulers of this Land of the Holy Cross, the Holy Virgin and Her mystical spouse, the Paraclete, the Great Monarch of the end times.
'But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will teach you all truth'. [John 16, 13] – 'He' means here 'The Paraclete' and this is the answer of our Lord Jesus Christ to the daily invocation of the President Jair Bolsonaro.
On May 21, the Church in Italy* commemorates Maria Santissima del Bosco (Niscemi, Caltanissetta, Sicily). In 1883, Saint John Bosco had a vision of a city of the future that would be located somewhere in Brazil. Brasilia is a futuristic city, but in this vision of the Holy Man it's about the Mystical City of God: [Rev 21, 2] 'And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband'. The Bride is Maria Santissima, Her husband – The Paraclete.

* The surname 'Bolsonaro' comes from the Veneto region in Italy. Maybe someone will find a reasonable etymology for this one.

Speaking of Italy, Francis is against similar behavior in Italy. He is a heretic:

Like in most places, I would guess that more than half of the Brazilian episcopate are a bunch of homosexuals, especially those that have been put in by Francis.
They are much more interested in going on the prowl for young men to molest, that to consecrate their country to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary.
We can only imaging what goes on in the dark recesses of Pope Francis' Casa Santa Marta and his Vatican.

"I would guess..." "We can only imagining (sic)…
"I read somewhere..."
Keep up the rigorous critiques, Damian.

Damian M. Malliapalli said...

Sorry Peter,Buddy Man, but even though I used the words "I would guess" or We can only imagine etc., there are pretty hard stats and proven evidence that many bishops (in Brazil too), are active homosexuals, who have been convicted of molesting young men. If you have functioning eyes and brain, you will remember the scandals all thru the news and internet, and blasted on TV relentlessly. All need for "I would guess" etc.

Actually, I was trying to be polite by saying "I would guess". Since I know the facts are true however.....I could have used more combative,abrasive, insulting language when speaking about people like those priests etc. who deserve that kind of abuse.

No one deserves that abuse more than Pope Francis....who today when speaking to a group of Catholic Charity workers, said the Church should "abandon old traditions" etc....and that Jesus never created doctrine. In other words, make everything up as we go.
That kind of thinking is what has wrecked the Church in the last 50 years, and Francis has done a great job of it even more in the last 6 (hopefully not seeing 7) years. Good example of that is my own Archdiosecean seminary of Saint Charles Borromeo , here in Philly which after nearly 150 years at its present location, due to massive declines in enrollment and financial debt is today sold to Main Line Health Network. The seminary, in decline since 1965, suffered another serious drop these last few years of Pope Francis. Keep up the good work, "Holy Father". Before you're done, there won't be any more Catholic Faith....which is probably his master plan all along...and that of his crew.
