The Catholic Defender: It's Adam and Eve, NOT Adam and Steve!
DID YOU KNOW THAT....When Adam and Eve were driven out of the garden of Eden, Adam took some plants along with him? These he planted in their new place of settlement.
One of these plants was the Olive. Out of this Olive tree was made the holy Cross of Jesus Christ.
Thus, the tree planted by the first Adam became the cross of the second Adam. Mysteries! On one occasion,
one of the disciples of the great Elijah was on a mission on Mount Calvary.
Suddenly he found a human skull of someone that must have died so many years back.
In trying to remove the skull, an angel of God appeared to him and warned him not to do so, "For that was the skull of Adam, the first man created by God".
This man ran and informed the Jewish elders. They, too, came and saw the skull. Since then, in honor of this skull of Adam, that place has been named and called the "place of the skull" or the "Golgotha".
It was on this same spot, as led by the Spirit of God, that the holy Cross of Jesus was mounted so that where the first Adam died, Jesus (the second Adam) would also die - Mt. 27: 33 - 35; Mk. 15: 22 - 25; Jn. 19: 17 - 18.
Thus, as life was lost on the tree of paradise, life was restored on the tree of Calvary. The tree which became the instrument of man's fall is now the instrument of man's restoration. Proudly Catholic!
Pray for America and the Catholic Faith, for true Sacramental Marriage.
The Holy House of Loreto
was transported to Italy in the 13th century likely by Crusaders returning to Europe, although tradition attributes the "Translation" miraculously to angels. Since the 1920s, the basilica has been staffed by the Capuchin Franciscan friars. Due to my membership in the Third Order of St. Francis, my work organizing pilgrimages, and my own prayer and Mass attendance at the Holy House, I know a number of friars and personnel who staff the basilica. And so I began my research.
In any case, it seems extraordinary that an elderly "hermit of Loreto" would have had such such an intuition or premonition about Donald Trump as a future "Christian" leader when, at that time, he was no model of Christian virtue or living.
Regarding the brick in St. Peter's with Donald Trump's name on it... I am assuming the Jubilee year referred to was in 2000, and it would likely take a miracle to track it down... Although "with God all things are possible".
After looking into Tom Zimmer, the “Hermit of Loreto,” I have no reason to doubt Fr. Capoverdi’s statements that Thomas Zimmer communicated to his friend that he received a “premonition” that Donald Trump would “lead America back to God.” Nevertheless, when seeking to determine whether a prophecy is true or false, the Church leaves us some criteria to guide us in discernment.
Tom, Zimmer was so convinced that Donald Trump would become a great spiritual leader of America that he wrote his name on a brick and had it placed in the reconstruction of St. Peter’s Holy Door after the Jubilee in order that Trump would receive blessings from the many Masses that would be said in the Vatican.
of the 600 miles I have promised to march for President Donald Trump, I am well over half completed carrying the new Trump Flag which I was given by one of the many supporters who I have witnessed to,
