From (Mr.) IW @ USA
Peace and blessings upon you and your son.
I really enjoy the graces God pours out upon me and those of us that
take to heart the pearls that God grants us through you!!
If you find the time... Could you fill in any details on the greater
levels of Heaven we can achieve before crossing the veil. After said
crossing, does God provide us opportunities to go up in levels while
spending Eternity with Him?
In my thinking, being in Heaven with God and in perfect happiness, I
would always strive to be closer to Him, if that were possible. But
also, know how much much more I could, should have done before reaching
Thank you for your kind and
consoling words of encouragement.
Now, about "the levels"... First of all allow us to clarify our
position regarding that information:
This information falls in the
category of "I believe" as oppose to "I know" as we use other times.
that those levels
in Heaven are predetermined by what we do
before crossing the veil. If we resort to the technique we use to
better understand God, that is, taking a good human inclination and
taking it to infinity, then, the more merits we gain before crossing
the veil the higher the level would, thus, the closer to God one is
and, perhaps, the greater the power of intercession that soul may have
before the Throne of God.
A very human example: If you are, say, a Senator and have one or two
outstanding assistants - moral, honest, efficient, expert on the necessary
fields of their work, and served
you well in
the Senate - and you are elected President of the U.S., you will take
them with you to the White House.
With that said: Our recommendation is not to focus on trying to be
closer to God in
Heaven but on serving Him on Earth as He Wills that you do.
A very personal example: All through my school years I studied because
I wanted to learn and not with the purpose of getting higher grades.
The results were: (a) I learned far more than those around me and, as a
consequence; (b) I also got very good grades.
There are individuals who have the gift of memory and study the
night before the exam and get an excellent grade in the exam, yet, a
few days later they have forgotten most of what they "temporarily"
learned just to get good grades.
Now, regarding "After said crossing,
does God provide us opportunities
to go up in levels while spending Eternity with Him?
parallel that we can draw from is that.... While in purgatory we can
for the benefit of others but we cannot pray for our own benefit. So,
in this case I suspect that the same applies while in Heaven.... and
"to suspect" is not the same as "to believe" and neither are the same
as "to know".
I pray to God that we shed some light on this issue; however, if anyone
still has any questions about what we tried to explain, by all means,
Did you know that....
Vatican Secretary of
State attended the elite Bilderberg meeting? (1)
Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican
Secretary of State, will take part in the Bilderberg Conference, an
annual private gathering of global political, business and media
leaders, taking place this year in Turin, Italy, June 7-10.
Furthermore, from the same source we also learn that
Parolin took part in the World Economic Forum in Davos, and there he
delivered a speech in which he listed the aims of pontifical diplomacy.
We now have concrete - yet not surprising - confirmation that Opus Dei
is in both groups.
as of June 7, 2018
Did you know that....
the soon to be canonized Oscar Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador, who
was martyred as he was celebrating Mass was a core Opus Dei man? (1)
The Salvadoran prelate is
conventionally seen as a
champion of Liberation Theology, which was partially condemned by the
Vatican in the 1980s for its tendency to mix Marxist social analysis
and concepts such as “class struggle” with religious commitments.
Among the lesser-known facts of Romero
was his close relationship
with the personal prelature Opus Dei, though
for decades they remained quiet about the connection.
For almost 15 years Romero
had a spiritual director/confessor from Opus Dei – first Father Juan
Aznar and later Father Fernando Saenz, who would replace Romero
as Archbishop of San Salvador after his death.
Romero went to the beach with a group of Opus Dei friends on the
morning of the day he was killed; and in 1975, after the death of its
founder, Josemaría Escrivá, Oscar Romero sent a letter to
VI asking the pope to jump-start his canonization process.
Once again, we see the Opus Dei covering all the bases as we read in de
la Cierva's review of the Opus Dei:
[DD] It is a fact that,
1950, Opus Dei university branches
in certain occasions committed
notable injustices; at times
in iniquitous alliances with Marxist
professors and against Catholic professors. (2)
[TT] By virtue of that
rejection, the key rightist group of
the province of Navarra, made
up by many Opus Dei members have entered into certain alliances to form
the government of Navarra... with socialists and communists extreme
defenders of abortion... ....(Catholic political
every right to establish political coalitions.... except with those who
will influence the government with their atheistic and anti-life ideas.
For such alliances a Catholic does not have freedom unless the other
group renounces their philosophies.... ....I hope no one denies my
statements because then I will be forced to provide dates and names
associated with such activities. (2)
...and mind you - de la Cierva was a friend of Opus Dei to the point of
stating in his book:
[GGG] So that my [de la
Cierva's] evaluation be better understood I will summarize it as
follows: Opus Dei was invented, and
invented well; however, if it did
not exist, it would have to be invented with great urgency. Many
things, especially within the Church, depend on it. (2)
Whatever works for their overall agenda, works for them - it does not
matter who they have to pact with
