I have not written in at least a couple of years here. But I remember how many views I will get every time I will post a new article about SugarMill.
Today after all this time I will share with you a new small game I have created to hopefully help open your eyes to the only truth.
I grew up in Socialist/Communist Cuba, I lived there all my life from 1983 all the way until 2010. Living in a Communist environment at least in Cuba a lot of things are different than living in a free country.
#1: You are not free
#2: You feel watched, and are watched always. As a matter of fact, there is a guy in every block whose task is to report any suspicious activity you may perform.
#3: They teach you all from a really small age the Darwin theory, that we are products of evolution.
Well… I never believed anything, meaning, I was a smart monkey and period, but after COVID that changed, last year, being in the house for so long and getting sick for not being able to release SugarWinds I completely gave up on making it as a Video Game Dev. And well decided to start learning about anything, I got a job as an SW Dev and also start inquiring and researching about religions in the world.
I came to the conclusion that all monotheistic religious movements share roughly the same commandments:
-Honor your mother and your father
-Don't commit adultery
And so on, and as SW Devs, we are trained to find patterns in a way to solve issues in our daily life of Developers. Anyways when I saw this general pattern, it really got to me. I start then listening to all sum up stories of the Bible Old Testament.
Anyways, I didn't believe much either, yet. I was like, that a book and anyone can write on a piece of paper, something I learned in the army.
But everything changed for me when I studied what happened in Fatima, Portugal May 13, 1917. Virgin Mary appears to 3 kids, all below the age of 11. I knew then that they could not lie consistently for 6 months, in a small town in Portugal in 1917, especially in that specific period of time. That right there was my conversion.
As I myself have 3 kids and my wife is from Portugal, I knew was all true. Then I start digging into this. I learned about all Fatima apparitions and the Miracle of the Sun.
Then I have a family member tell me one day from Cuba:
Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
When I learned that I said to myself. Well, I will get close to God every day as much as I can, and is a journey I have to say.
And then discovered many other apparitions of the Virgin Mary, Garabandal, Medjugore, Akita, Lourdes, Guadalupe, and so on. And is easy to see the pattern too. Virgin Mary every time that appears is always asking the same thing over and over again.
Long story short. After a while and many dreams, I understood that I should bring the light of the gospels to as many people as possible and that is what I'm doing here.
Jesus came to liberate us from the real slavery, and sin. Sin is the real slavery, anytime you commit a sin you are less free, and more of a slave of that sin. Is that simple.
Then I learned about the Incorrupt Bodies the Catholic and Orthodox churches have. This really got to me
This is the icing on the top of the cake.
Lanciano Italy 700’s:
Ancient Anxanum, the city of the Frentanese, has contained for over twelve centuries the first and greatest Eucharistic Miracle of the Catholic Church. This wondrous Event took place in the 8th century A.D. in the little Church of St. Legontian, as a divine response to a Basilian monk's doubt about Jesus' Real Presence in the Eucharist.
During Holy Mass, after the two-fold consecration, the host was changed into live Flesh and the wine was changed into live Blood, which coagulated into five globules, irregular and differing in shape and size.
The Host-Flesh, as can be very distinctly observed today, has the same dimensions as the large host used today in the Latin church; it is light brown and appears rose-colored when lighted from the back.
The Blood is coagulated and has an earthy color resembling the yellow of ochre.
Various ecclesiastical investigation ("Recognitions") were conducted since 1574.
In 1970-'71 and taken up again partly in 1981 there took place a scientific investigation by the most illustrious scientist Prof. Odoardo Linoli, eminent Professor in Anatomy and Pathological Histology and in Chemistry and Clinical Microscopy. He was assisted by Prof. Ruggero Bertelli of the University of Siena.
The analyses were conducted with absolute and unquestionable scientific precision and they were documented with a series of microscopic photographs.
These analyses sustained the following conclusions:
The Flesh is real Flesh. The Blood is real Blood.
The Flesh and the Blood belong to the human species.
The Flesh consists of the muscular tissue of the heart.
In the Flesh we see present in section: the myocardium, the endocardium, the vagus nerve and also the left ventricle of the heart for the large thickness of the myocardium.
The Flesh is a "HEART" complete in its essential structure.
The Flesh and the Blood have the same blood-type: AB (Blood-type identical to that which Prof. Baima Bollone uncovered in the Holy Shroud of Turin).
In the Blood there were found proteins in the same normal proportions (percentage-wise) as are found in the sero-proteic make-up of the fresh normal blood.
In the Blood there were also found these minerals: chlorides, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium.
The preservation of the Flesh and of the Blood, which were left in their natural state for twelve centuries and exposed to the action of atmospheric and biological agents, remains an extraordinary phenomenon.
Now there are many Eucharistic miracles, here I will relate the most important ones in the last couple of decades
1991 Dec 8, Betania, Venezuela:
On December 8 of 1991, Father Otty Ossa Aristizábal was celebrating Mass in the chapel of the Shrine of Betania in Cúa and during the consecration, saw the Host bleeding. The miraculous Host is preserved in the city of Los Teques, at the convent of the Augustinian Recollects Nuns of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, where It is permanently exposed for the adoration of the faithful and It is visited every year by numerous pilgrims coming also from abroad. Many prodigious events have taken place, connected to the Host of the Miracle, among the one which stands out that occurred to a young American who filmed the miraculous Host pulsating like a heart, while It was exposed to the faithful.
2008 Oct 12, Sokolka, Poland:
On October 12, 2008, at the church dedicated to Saint Anthony of Sokółka, the Holy Mass of 8:30 AM is celebrated by a young vicar, Filip Zdrodowski. During Communion, unknowingly the Host falls from the hands of one of the priests. A woman kneeling, ready to receive the Eucharist, makes him notice it. The priest remains paralyzed from fright and believing it was dirty, places it in the vasculum, a small silver vessel which contains the water utilized by priests to wash their fingers after distributing Communion. At the end of the Holy Mass, the sacristan, Sister Julia Dubowska, takes the vascu-lum with the Host and for in-creased safety pours it into another vessel which she then locks in the safe where the chalices were kept.
2013 Dec 25, Legnica, Poland:
In St. Hyacinth’s church in Legnica, during Holy Mass, on December 25, 2013, a Host accidentally fell on the ground, during the distribution of Communion. It was immediately placed in a container with water and closed in the tabernacle as required by code of Canon Law. A few days later, a red spot appeared on Its surface. The Bishop of Legnica at the time, Stefan Cichy, decided to establish a commission for a scientific analysis. The results were surprising, and confirmed that It had similarities to “human heart muscle with alterations that often appear during the agony”.
Who is Carlo Acutis:
Blessed Carlo Acutis was an English-born Italian Catholic youth and amateur computer programmer, who is best known for documenting Eucharistic miracles around the world and cataloguing them onto a website which he created before his death from leukemia.
Peace be with you all!
But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
