Red Cross in the Sky
I suggest you read ALL of this through.

The below, again , is highly Catholic oriented and relies heavily on the assumption of Mary's ascension into heaven; which is Catholic dogma - it can't be proven; it's not in the bible. The Church at some point in time simply "assumed" it happened; maybe logical, but not with proof of scripture. These apartitions could be really Mary and they could be the work of the devil to misguide us and redirect our focus away from Yahweh. Again you will have to be the judge; I just present the information I find for your perusal. This was sent to me by one of my listserve associates.
Red Marks 2001 KX76
See In Depth: 95
Worlds and Counting
July 3 — The discovery of a large reddish chunk of something orbiting in Pluto's neighborhood has re-ignited the idea that there may be more than nine planets in the solar system.
What the discoverers are calling 2001 KX76 might be one of the largest "Kuiper Belt Objects" or KBO's, found in the what is essentially a second asteroid belt beyond the orbit of Neptune. Initial reports give 2001 KX76 a diameter of 900 to 1200 kilometers — roughly the size of Pluto's moon, Charon. Pluto itself, it should be noted, is smaller than our own moon.
Because KBOs are believed to have very elongated orbits around the sun they spend a lot of time on dark, centuries-long excursions into deep space. That makes them very hard to find, said astronomer Robert Millis, director of the Lowell Observatory, which was involved in the discovery.
THE END DAYS
THE GREAT MIRACLE
A Miracle similar to that at Fatima, a great wonder to convince many, predicted to take place on the Feast Day of a young martyr of the Eucharist but not on a holy day of Our Lady. The miracle will last for about a quarter of an hour and will be visible from Garabandal, Spain, and the surrounding mountains. Our Holy Father will see it no matter where he is at the time. This miracle will take place on a date which will be announced eight days before. Afterwards, God will leave a sign in memory of it. It can be shown on TV for the whole world to see.
THE CROSS IN THE SKY
As late as 1965, the three days of darkness was spoken of again in a holy person in Europe: "The Divine fire and the fire of hell will arrive and last during the days of darkness indicated by all the saints. My luminous cross will appear in the sky, it will be the sign that the final events are close, and will remind all of My terrible passion, so that they will have time to reflect, for I shall not punish the world without previous announcement. All will have time to comprehend the significance of that cross in the sky, and everyone shall see it. All will know, even those who reject it, that this My cross will be the sign that a Redeemer came once to bring salvation and pardon. My cross will be honored as never before."
IV. What to Do For Protection During the Three Days
As soon as you perceive the disturbed signs of the very cold night: Go inside, shut and lock all doors and windows, pull down the shades, keep the doors and windows well covered, go and stay away from doors and windows. Do not look out, do not go outside for any reason, and do not talk to anyone outside. Demons will imitate your loved ones' voice to entice to go outside and kill you. ANYONE WHO LOOKS OUT OR GOES OUT WILL DIE IMMEDIATELY! The wrath of God is holy and He does not want us to see it.
LIGHT YOUR BLESSED CANDLES
All will be black, and the only thing which will give light will be blessed wax candles; even these will not burn in the houses of the godless and scoffers. Once lit, nothing will put them out in the houses of the believers. Be sure to keep a supply of blessed wax believers. Be sure to keep a supply of blessed wax candles in your homes - also - Holy Water to be sprinkled freely around the house, especially at doors and windows. Bless yourself and others with it. Drink it and anoint your senses with it (eyes, ears, nose, mouth) and hands, feet, and forehead.
STORAGE OF FOOD
Keep on hand a sufficient supply of food, water and blankets for those of your household and any visitors. Do not count on any utilities.
DO NOT TAKE ANIMALS INTO YOUR HOME
Taking care of your animals by leaving enough food and water outside for them to last these days. God will preserve the property of the elect, including their animals. It is assumed that house pets may be kept inside. Animals which have been petted or cared for by a blessed person receive a certain protection.
KNEEL DOWN BEFORE A CRUCIFIX AND PRAY INCESSANTLY
Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the floor, pleading for many souls to be saved. Make acts of contrition of faith, hope and love. Make acts of Spiritual Communion. Read spiritual books.
PRAY THE ROSARY
Meditate on its mysteries. You must think more of the Passion of Christ.
CALL UPON GOD'S MERCY
And call upon Our Blessed Mother for He has given these times into the care of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary (under that title). "No harm will come to those who are in the state of grace and seek My Mother's protection."
INVOKE THE INTERCESSION OF SAINTS
Call upon the Holy Trinity, Holy Mary, Saint Joseph, Saints Peter and Paul, Saint Therese (the Little Flower), Saint Francis of Assisi, Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, Saint Conrad of Parzham, The Holy Angels, your own Guardian Angels, and Saint Michael the Archangel. The cry: "Who is like unto God?" (the motto of Saint Michael) will serve as a protection to many.
Those who are caught traveling on the road and unable to get to shelter will die as martyrs and be taken to Heaven, if they are good. Some children and others will be taken to Heaven beforehand, to spare them the horror of these days. "THOSE WHO DISREGARD THIS ADVICE WILL BE KILLED INSTANTLY"
The three days of darkness have already been postponed several times by the increased prayers and the sacrifices of good people and through the intercession of Our Blessed Mother. Now they will no longer be delayed because sins have multiplied beyond measure. THEY WILL COME SOON, for in the merciful plan of God, this world must be purified of its sin. It is predicted that these Three Days of Darkness will come and no one will escape the terror of these days!"
"I will find them all."
VI. What to do now?
I. Be in the State of Grace
We must get and remain in the state of grace now for we never know the day nor the hour when God may call us. We must let none of these signs turn us from our Holy Mother Church, but we must cling to our Holy Faith and Trust in God's mercy, He has promised to protect the just. Do not offend Him by lack of trust.
The sacrament of baptism confers Sanctifying Grace on a person who is then said to be in the state of grace. He or she continues in that state after baptism as long as he or she remains without mortal sin. The person (age 7 or above) loses the Sanctifying Grace when he or she commits mortal sins. The person can regain the Sanctifying Grace by repenting and seeking absolution in the sacrament of confession when Priests are available.
"Those who believe my words and spread this message will have nothing to fear. Those who fight for my cause will receive Grace from My Divine Heart."
II. Have Courage to Face Reality
There are always some who say they would rather not hear these things because they are frightening these people are like a person who does not want to be told when their house is burning down! Surely it is better to make the endeavor to sanctify ourselves and be saved, than to scoff and risk our eternal happiness. God sent His Son to suffer and die for our salvation. God sent His Son to suffer and die for our salvation. He wants us all to behold His Holy Face for eternity.
III. Be A True Christian
We must be true Christians, fervent and zealous for souls. Respect and obey Priests. Support our Holy Catholic Church, and not only with alms and occasional attendance, but with daily Mass and reception of Holy Communion; also with more faithful attendance at the various church devotions: Rosary, Novenas, Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Holy Hour and special devotions. We should particularly keep Our Lord company during days or nights of exposition, as prayersbefore the Blessed Sacrament are the most valuable of all and most beneficial to us.
We should pray wholeheartedly and steadily for our Holy Father, the Pope, for priests, brothers, nuns, seminarians, postulants, and all those good people who work for our Holy Religion - to give them courage and strength to go on in these evil times.
We should not forget the Poor Souls in Purgatory. We ask them for favors, and pray for their release.
IV. Love Poverty and Sacrifices
Love poverty, abhor possessions, relieve the poor. Jesus gave us only two commandments: Love God and Love each other. We must live these commandments in our daily lives. No one can carry hatred, bitterness, unforgiveness, ill feeling, gossip, backbiting or any such malice into Heaven. The more we truly love God and love our Neighbor, the more we shall be protected and given special graces.
Our Lord pleads for generous souls to offer themselves as victims for the salvation of many. This victimhood can be accomplished in countless ordinary ways: little mortifications, sacrifices and penances - to curb the tongue of a curt remark, to suffer a headache or pain without speaking of it, never to complain about anything, to be silent when accused justly or unjustly, to deny our senses and appetites, etc. We are asked to make more reparation, as "Many Souls are lost because there is no one to pray and make sacrifices for them. The prayers and reparation of faithful souls will work miracles!"
V. Persevere in Prayer and Will to Go to Heaven
Discouragement is the finest tool of the devil, his opening wedge. Do not give in to it. Persevere in prayer, to keep your adversary from taking dominion over you. Remember that No one goes to Hell unless he himself wills it. Think of that! You cannot be dragged down to Hell without your own consent - you yourself have to will to go to Hell. Therefore, take courage and Will to go to Heaven where God wants you.
VI. Devotion to the Mother of God
We must have very great devotion and recourse to Mary - especially to her Immaculate Conception and to Her Immaculate Heart. Both Our Lord and Our Lady beg for many more Rosaries. "Pray the Rosary, but pray it well, with meditation on the mysteries and with true devotion." Our Lord said, "Tell the people not nearly enough of them are praying the daily Rosary. They must pray the Rosary for the conversion of Russia." Remember what the Blessed Virgin said at Fatima: "ln the end, Russia will be converted, and there will be an era of peace." Do not belittle the power of the Rosary. Gather together and pray in unison, in Christian charity. The Family Rosary, the Block Rosary, especially the Rosary in Church before the Blessed Sacrament. The Saintly Pope Pius XII said that "Next to Mass, the Fatima Devotions are the most important."
In Our Lord's revelations to Berthe Petit, He particularly asked devotion to Our Blessed Mother under the title of Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
If you can, attend more than one Mass, have said or offer your Masses in honor of the Holy Spirit, The Holy Angels, and The Immaculate Heart of Mary.
VII. Frequent Holy Communion
We are urged to give much attention to the Holy Eucharist, to receive daily or frequent Holy Communion with great devotion and thanksgiving. We should keep our tongues pure and clean to receive Our Lord in a way most pleasing to Him (not stained by gossip or any malice.) Saint Teresa of Avila said, "that we should be most careful of our tongue since it is the most privileged member of our body, the table on which we receive the True Body and Blood of Our Crucified Lord. Every effort should be made to receive Daily Communion because every Communion received in the state of grace not only strengthens you, but also strengthens the Mystical Body of Christ. Therefore, be generous in this effort, as we can easily understand that the neglect of Communion has the opposite effect.
VIII. Best to Become a Tertiary
It is best to become atertiary and thus gain the greatest spiritual benefits. The benefits of a tertiary are far above those of any association of confraternity, because the tertiary or oblate actually belongs to all established religious order of the Church. A number of orders offer this privilege; Franciscan, Dominican, Benedictine, Carmelite, Trinitarian, and others. Anyone can become a tertiary, male or female, married or single. A tertiary lives in the world, but endeavors to live a more holy life.
IX. Will to Become a Saint
Let no one foolishly say that they are too bad or too ordinary to become a Saint, for this would be denying God's merciful plan. Holy Scripture tells us: "This is the will of God: Your sanctification." It is up to each of us, His creatures whom He created out of the love of His Heart, to seek to obey Him. Remember those beautiful words in Holy Scripture: "What does God ask of you, but to walk in His way and do His Holy Will."
X. Have Your Home Blessed and Consecrated to the Two Hearts
Have Your Home Blessed and Consecrated to the Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary. And always keep on hand: Holy Water, Blessed Wax Candles, Blessed Palm, Blessed Crucifix, Images of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Recommended Prayers and Devotions.
XI. Recommended Prayers and Devotions
Gain Indulgences from Sacramentals
Holy Mother Church gives us a choice of many devotions and a great treasury of indulgences. She tells us that we should value indulgences highly and we should gain as many as possible for ourselves and others.<.LI>
After Holy Mass, Holy Communion, the Sacraments, and the Sacramentals, there is the Rosary, of which we have already spoken. It is good to join the Archconfraternity of the Holy Rosary, remembering Our Blessed Mother's promise: "I have obtained from My Divine Son that all members of the Rosary Confraternity shall have for their intercessors the entire Celestial Court during their life and at the hour of their death." Our Lady told St. Dominic that "One day through the Rosary and Scapular I will save the world."
Be enrolled in and constantly wear the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, which is Our Lady's Livery. Every day recite the commutation prayers of seven times Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be, to gain the Sabbatine Privilege (rescue from purgatory the Saturday following your death). Our Lady made a promise to St. Simon Stock on July 16, 1261 that "Whosoever dies clothed in this (scapular) shall not suffer eternal fire."
Be enrolled in and wear the Miraculous Medal of Our Lady, which bestows such great graces. Remember Her words when She sadly said: "Many people do not receive graces, because they do not ask for them."
O Mary, Conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee.
The Green Scapular continues to bestow many blessings and effect many conversions and returns to the Church, with the Prayer: "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death."
It is well also to wear the Saint Benedict Medal, which is the highest indulgenced Medal of the Church. Learn and recite the prayers against Satan, which are engraved on the Medal.
Devotion to St. Joseph and the Holy angels
We should cultivate much devotion to Saint Joseph. It is revealed that wherever the Blessed Virgin is, Saint Joseph is always with Her, because it was given to him to take care of Her.
We must always draw nearer to and rely upon the Holy Angels, remembering that they are not only our guardians but also our messengers, ready to do our bidding. There is a chaplet in honor of the Angel, which contains remarkable promises for those who recite it.
We should give special attention to Saint Michael, the Archangel, and continue to recite the prayer (by Pope Leo XIII) after each Mass. This holy Pope composed this prayer after his terrifying vision of Satan's power of destruction in these times.
Visit the Blessed Sacrament
We are urged to make Many more visits to the Blessed Sacrament, and make Holy Hours. If we cannot go to a Church for these things, then we should send our Angel to attend Holy Mass for us, to visit Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, to attend to our prayers. We should make very many spiritual communions. Our Lord asked Sister Benigna to let not even a quarter of an hour pass without making a Spiritual Communion. So desirable this is.
Devotion to the Holy Face
The Storm Novena is valuable, in that it brings us to the Blessed Sacrament nine times in one day. Another devotion most pleasing to Our Lord is to His Holy Face. He not only wishes us to make reparation for the insults to His Holy Face, but He wants us to behold Him face to face for all eternity. Saint Athanasius relates that the devils on being asked what verse in the Scriptures they feared the most, replied: "That with which the 67th Psalm commences: Let God arise and let His Enemies be scattered, and let them that hate Him flee from before His face!" They added that this verse always compelled them to take flight.
Devotion to the Holy Spirit
Much more devotion should be given to the Holy Spirit. We should be impressed with the importance of the Holy Ghost when we recall that Our Lord said that He must go, in order that the Holy Spirit could come and "The Holy Spirit will teach you all things that you need to know."
A prayer too much forgotten is the one which Our Lady of Fatima asked to be said when we offer sacrifices: "O Jesus, it is for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." This is a Miraculous prayer . . . please use it often.
When Sister Josefa Menendez (called the "second Margaret-Mary") asked Our Lady for a prayer to be said constantly while working, She gave this: "O My Beloved, Who art also My God, make my heart a flame of pure love for Thee!"
Very great promises to save countless souls accompany this little prayer which Our Lord taught to Sister M. Consolato Betrone (Capuchin Nun):
"JESUS, MARY, I LOVE YOU! SAVE SOULS!"
The fifteen prayers of Saint Bridget of Sweden, on the Passion on of our Lord, are most timely, since Our Lady has recently impressed upon us that we "must think more of the Passion of Jesus."
Booklets, leaflets, chaplets and medals are available for any devotion of your choice. However, out of all these private devotions, we must remember that Our Blessed Mother's Rosary is the most important, according to the requests of both Jesus and Mary.
Also the Stations of the Cross, and the Stations of our Sorrowful Mother . . . since all of these cause us to meditate upon the Passion of Our Lord and the compassion of Our Lady.
In one of Our Blessed Mother's revelations to a stigmatic nun in Italy, she said: "My daughter, the time is not far off. When men least expect it, the course of Divine Justice will be accomplished. My Heart is so big for poor sinners and I make use of every possible means that they may be saved. Look at My mantle, how big it is! If I were not bowed over the world, to cover all with My maternal love, the tempest of fire would already have broken upon the nations. This is the mantle of My Mercy for all those who have repented, come back to My Immaculate Heart. See, My right hand holds the mantle to cover and save poor sinners, while My left hand holds back Divine Justice so that the time of mercy may still be prolonged. To help me in this, I ask that the prayer of Maternal Refuge be spread as a most useful means to obtain graces and salvation for poor sinners."
Say often, with your arms crossed:
"QUEEN OF THE UNIVERSE, MEDIATRIX OF MEN TO GOD, REFUGE OF ALL OUR HOPES! HAVE MERCY ON US!"
