In 1964 Queen Elizabeth II visited the Pope, complying with his request to be dressed in black.

President Sukarno of Indonesia received from the Pope a few years ago, the highest Papal honor which can be bestowed on a layman. His regime has since ended in ignominy.

On 1 April 1968 President Johnson virtually resigns by announcing he will not stand for re-election. His three years in office were among the most tragic in American History. More than half a million US troops were sent to Vietnam without decisive results. He had to cope with anti-war demonstrations, unrest on the campus and Negro riots. The prestige of the USA abroad was at its lowest. Johnson died after suffering his third heart attack, on January 22, 1973.

He compromised by appointing a personal envoy to the Vatican, as the US constitution does not allow official representation.

When Pope Paul VI visited Australia in 1970, he pronounced his blessing on Australia. "May God bless the Great Australian Nation, May He grant it peace and prosperity." His followers were delighted and expected great benefit to the nation, but this is what actually happened. On 27 April 1973, Prime Minister Whitlam audiences with the Pope, and a few months later opens diplomatic relations with the Vatican, for the first time in the nation’s history —and with out any mandate from the people. In the period that followed, the country is hit by frequent strikes, intemperate demands for wage rises, business recession, record rate of inflation of 17% and serious unemployment from which the nation in 1982 had not yet recovered. On 25 December 1974, the city of Darwin is destroyed by a monstrous cyclone. On 13 December 1975, the Australian Labor Party is overwhelmingly defeated at the polls.

Three months later, his successor, Pope John Paul I also dies unexpectedly. Mr. Fraser, however, is not yet out of the wood. His formula for curing the nation of inflation has met with disaster, for the nation is hit with the highest unemployment ever!

Mr. Lech Walesa, who emerged as leader of Solidarity, had an audience with the Pope on 14 January 1981 and received his "blessing", hoping thereby to strengthen his position and that of Solidarity.

Cardinal Sin, Archbishop of Manila, in another context is reported to have warned that the conditions in the Philippines are worsening, (The Age 2/1/81)
President Sadat of Egypt had an audience with the Pope on 14 February 1978. He was assassinated on 7 October 1981.

On 2 June 1980, Pope John Paul II visited France and was given a state reception by Pres. Valery Giseard D’Estaing who also had a private audience with him. Hardly a year later in May 1981 he is defeated at the elections by Mr. François Mitterand the Socialist Party leader.

In December 1979 Pope John Paul II visited Turkey and was received as head of state by Prime Minister Suleiman Demirel. On 12 September 1980 Mr. Demirel is deposed in a bloodless coup-de-tat by Turkey’s military leaders led by Gen. Kenan Evren.

President Jimmy Carter not only highly eulogized Pope John Paul II when he visited the USA in October 1979, but even invited him to the White House and to address Congress! He followed it up by making a personal visit to the Vatican on 23 June 1980. He was soundly defeated at the elections in December 1980 by Mr. Ronald Reagan, who won a landslide victory. The double Papal "blessing" did not help!

Britain accepts the favor of a Papal visit—the first ever. Timed for May 1982, she is plunged into war with 95% Romanist Argentina only weeks before.

Now Ronald Reagan is to visit the Pope en route to Versailles. (What came of that?)
One of the classic examples of the Pope’s blessings boomeranging is that of Pakistan and India. A few years ago, the Pope visited these two unfortunate countries, and while it is true, famine and flood are no strangers to these two countries, the fact remains that no disaster in living memory was so intense and destructive as the floods which struck those countries in the year of 1970, unless it be the present cholera epidemic.

One could go on and on enumerating cases as above, but there is enough listed to prove that they are not coincidental.

If Papal blessings spell disaster, what of the CURSES of the Popes? Yes, they run in reverse, as the following one or two examples will demonstrate.

Pope Pius IX cursed King Victor Emmanuel, the liberator of Italy, and also the Italian Government that made Italy free and Rome its capital. The result has been the rise of Italy to the status of a modern civilized nation, and only suffered a set-back when the Pope blessed Mussolini and his troops.

Garibaldi was excommunicated by the Pope for all his patriotic endeavors, especially the overthrow of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. He became Italy’s hero, whose name was, and is, everywhere revered, and to whom noble monuments were erected.

When Bismark and the King of Prussia proscribed the Jesuits, the Pope cursed Prussia, with the result that it became a Great Power, overthrew Austria and France, and was for years the most powerful Empire in Western Europe—until, in an evil day, its ruler fraternized with the Pope.

The Papal curses, which the Popes leveled against Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth, Sir Francis Drake and his merry men, brought untold blessings on England, while Papal blessings to Ireland have proved its ruin. How carefully therefore, should British sovereigns avoid by all means any interaction with the Papacy! Present day events tragically show that they have not learned their lesson after all!

It should go without saying, that everyone who values their lives and souls should shun the Vatican and the Pope like poison and have no communication or business with Rome.
It sure makes you wonder about all the times our 'leadership' in the denomination has RCC clergy to 'bless' our functions and pray and even preside in our college weeks of prayer!!!
Think also how things are ‘Prospering’ in the USA since all this buddy-buddy relations with the Vatican!

Do you realize that it was immediately after Constantine put forth Sunday Laws that Rome’s mighty Empire began to crumble! History shows the truth for those who wish to see it.
