Mother Mary Comes To Me: Words of Wisdom from Medjugorje - Paperback by Dennis Muth

How Catholics Can Save Our Dying Civilization-Crisis Magazine

In a recent address, Archbishop Chaput articulated how much we depend on the residual religious capital of earlier times, but once the capital is spent, “we may not like the results, because the more we delete God from our public life and our private behavior, the more we remove the moral vocabulary that gives our culture meaning.”

A hospice patient whom we will call “Robert” was a high ranking member of a demonic cultic order.

He appeared comfortable except he was experiencing some difficulty breathing. Suddenly, I began to sense the tangible presence of demonic spirits in the room. The hair on the back of my neck stood up and a cloud of oppression overcame me. I have been in the ministry of intercession and spiritual warfare for many years. This was the most intense presence of evil that I had ever experienced. The battle for Robert's soul had begun. CONTINUE reading HERE
