How to choose crochet hook size and yarn for Amigurumi dolls?

3 to 8 inch Dolls: use 4 ply/ DK yarn with 3-3.25 mm hooks.

Big dolls: use Worsted Weight/ Aran or Chunky yarn with 4-5.5 mm hooks.

If you want to make a doll which is bigger than in the pattern, use a bigger hook and thicker yarn. Likewise for a smaller doll use a smaller hook and thinner yarn.

Below are the tables of  the “Standard Yarn Weight System” and “Crochet Hook Conversion” which you can use as a guideline for the yarn and crochet hook.

Standard Yarn Weight System
Categories of yarn, gauge ranges, and hook sizes

Notes:
  • GUIDELINES ONLY: The above reflect the most commonly used gauges and needle or hook sizes for specific yarn categories.
  • Lace weight yarns are usually knitted or crocheted on larger needles and hooks to create lacy, openwork patterns. Accordingly, a gauge range is difficult to determine. Always follow the gauge stated in your pattern.
  • Steel crochet hooks and UK/Canadian hooks are the higher the number, the smaller the hook.

John L.Allen Jr.Pied Piper of John Paul II deceives Catholics with his essay Fast-Track Saint in Newsweek -- with Vatican lunacy & Satanic timeline

Updated September 13, 2011



John Allen is the highest paid journalist on the planet earth paid by the Vatican Swiss Banks to be the Pied Piper par excellence to lead Catholics and the world into the cave of deception. John Allen wrote the official biography of the Opus Dei and Rule of Benedict XVI.


By contrast, here is a new book exposing the evils of Opus Dei that controls the Vatican and the papacy especially the papacy of John Paul II and Cardinal Ratzinger Benedict XVI.

Read our new blog Pope Crimes and Vatican Evils... Benedict XVI's Crimes Against Humanity at The Hague http://popecrimes.blogspot.com/

We had to create a new blog to focus on the crimes of the Vatican and the long lawsuits against the Vatican, Benedict XVI and dioceses worldwide. Ireland confirmed our new blog as the Irish Prime Minister and Irish government and 99% of the Irish media are condemning the Vatican -- read our article Ireland condemns Vatican secrecy on Cloyne Diocese pedophile priests. Ireland vis-à-vis USA: the way they deal with crimes by the Vatican http://popecrimes.blogspot.com/2011/07/ireland-government-condemns-vatican.html

We will continue to post new pedophile priests in this blog - below - John Allen article.

Part 1, the heart of Fast-Track Saint in NEWSWEEK MAGAZINE

John Allen is the highest paid journalist on Earth paid by the Vatican Bank and he has written for NEWSWEEK Magazine read by millions all over the world. It is important to show how cunning and deceitful he is and so we are writing our analysis in two parts. This is part one which analyses the heart of his essay. Below this post is part 2 the analysis of the entire essay.

The Eucharist is the re-incarnation of Jesus Christ.
John L. Allen Jr is the re-incarnation of the Serpent of Deception in the Garden of Eden now the Vatican Kingdom.

In this article we will prove the Vatican-paid lunacy of John L. Allen Jr and his Satanic timeline for the fast-track saint John Paul II.

1. The Vatican Trinity

The Vatican Trinity, John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Opus Dei are the re-incarnations of Lucifer who claimed “I will be like the Most High” because they claim themselves and John Paul II to be as high as Jesus Christ and so they removed the image of Jesus and replaced it with the JP2 papal fat body superimposing it over Mary, see the statues here in our article http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/narcissism-and-grandiosity-of-john-paul.html. Lucifer was the Angel of Light or Holiness... and the Devil’s name is “Legion” and Opus Dei is a legion who insist that egotistical self-centered “holiness” is the most important goal of daily life, read our related article Why John Paul II is Opus Dei saint http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/why-john-paul-ii-is-opus-deis-patron.html

Victims in USA - Attackers - Responsible Leaders

Pearl Harbor - 3,000 victims - 170 planes - Admiral Yamamoto

WTC & 9/11 attacks - 3,000 victims - 19 Muslims - Osama bin Laden

JP2 Army - 15,736 victims - 6,000 pedophile priests - John Paul II & Benedict XVI & Opus Dei, the new Vatican Trinity

Opus Dei controlled the 27 years papacy of John Paul II and is therefore the foremost guilty party who aided and abetted and covered-up the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army. Opus Dei wrote most of John Paul II’s books and writings and to ensure their perpetuity as “All things Catholic”, they want JP2 to be beatified and canonized now by Benedict XVI so as not to take any chances on other future popes. The FACE of Opus Dei is John Paul II and the PHANTOM Spirit of Opus Dei is their founder St. Josemaria Escriva, read our related article John Paul II, Patron of Pederasts and Opus Dei – analysis of Joaquin Navarro-Valls’ reasons for JP2 beatification at Opus Dei conference in Rome http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/john-paul-ii-patron-of-pederasts-and.html

2. John Allen J, Jr the Pied Piper of the Vatican Swiss Banks

Let us show you step by step, word for word, how John L. Allen Jr. does it as the premier Pied Piper of John Paul II and why he deserves to be the planet’s highest paid journalist by the Vatican Swiss Banks in his Newsweek article of April 17, 2011, where he brainwashes the Americans and the world to agree with the beatification of John Paul II on May 1, 2011. John L. Allen Jr.’s words are in italics. We put in bold his deceptive and serpentine words. Our analysis and comments are immediately after the title, subtitles, photo, and paragraphs. It is not pleasant to be reading or analysing John L. Allen Jr. as he too is like John Paul II who is filled with narcissism and grandiosity which are so nauseating and despicable, but, for the sake of the young men and women of the WYD World Youth Day who are like sheep being led to the slaughterhouse of deception and for the sake of children who will soon be brainwashed to chant “Saint” John Paul II, we will do it in solidarity with the suffering hundreds of thousands of victims of the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army who are being slapped with the worst insult in their lives as Benedict XVI’s papal farts out of the Devil’s Bowels -- the crowning beatification of the Pope John Paul II who had the longest reign papacy but who wilfully did nothing to protect and save little boys and girls from pedophiles rapists-priests and thus in death he cannot protect and save children either. Read our related article Heil Satanas JP2 Patron Saint of Pedophiles, Pederasts Rapists-Priests! John Paul II is the same yesterday and today-- he cannot protect children http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/05/heil-satanas-jp2-patron-saint-of.html

3. Core paragraph in Newskweek Magazine

Before we go into the painstaking entire essay, we would like to point out immediately the nucleus or core paragraph of this Newsweek article, Fast-Track Saint, the Pied Piper a la crème defence of John Paul II beatification and John L. Allen Jr.’s most deceptive paragraph. This paragraph is strategically placed past midway after he builds his essay, the 9th of 13 paragraphs, and it is the heart his article: Those inclined to give John Paul the benefit of the doubt argue that the church has been on a learning curve and it’s unfair to judge him by today’s standards. Further, they say, by the time the American scandals erupted and Maciel’s guilt became clear, the late pope was already well into his twilight. His primary contribution to combating the scourge of clerical abuse, they argue, was inspiring a new generation of dedicated and holy priests, men who take their duty of standing “in the person of Christ” seriously, and who are therefore less likely to dishonor their vows.

4. The Nucleus: Blueprint of Vatican Beatification of JP2

Let’s dissect the core paragraph into phrases which are the main subtle pleas of the lunacy of John Allen and his crafty reasons why John Paul II merit to be the fast-track saint

.1. to give John Paul the benefit of the doubt
.2. that the church has been on a learning curve
.3. it’s unfair to judge him[JP2] by today’s standards
.4. by the time the American scandals erupted and Maciel’s guilt became clear, the late pope was already well into his twilight.

.5. His [JP2] primary contribution to combating the scourge of clerical abuse…JP2 was [will be] inspiring
.(a) a new generation of dedicated and holy priests
.(b) men who take their duty of standing “in the person of Christ” seriously
.(c) who are therefore less likely to dishonor their vows.

Everything that Benedict XVI, the Opus Dei, the Vatican and John L. Allen Jr. do – past, present and future -- are based on this pattern or nucleus which we expose further in the analysis.

This corroborate the “new” Vatican Guidelines on clergy sex abuse on minors, read our related article here Vatican guidelines on sex abuse are hogwash as long as Cardinal Bernard Law sits as High Priest in Rome - apply first to him &his 80 pedophile priests http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/05/save.html

5. The 2-lines most deceptive words of John Allen (as the reincarnation of the Serpent)

.1 -- “to give John Paul the benefit of the doubt

.3 -- “it’s unfair to judge him[JP2] by today’s standards”

These 2 lines are the main Pied Piper deception of John Allen which are the undercurrent message in all his writings: “to give John Paul the benefit of the doubt and it’s unfair to judge him [JP2] by today’s standards”. So who’s buying John Allen’s Pied Piper itune? We are in the 21st century where crimes are “proven beyond the shadow of a doubt” with the use of DNA and all kinds of advanced technology and the standards of truth are unparalleled than other centuries in the history of the world -- and John Allen wants the fastest tracking saint in history not to be subjected to today’s standards!!? John Allen want the world to go back to the dark Medieval Ages when the monarch Pope reigned supreme as a dictator, uncontested and obeyed blindly and fanatically adulated. Who is he kidding?

This is the lunacy of John Allen who is imparting this message to the youths of WYD World Youth Day and to today’s world – to not judge John Paul II by today’s standards – and so they should be stupidly chanting to the papal narcissistic idolatry of “JP2, we love you”.

Thanks to Mother Earth for today’s standard of Secularism (meaning without God or religion) (Benedict XVI’s number one public enemy is secularism) because the secular world obviously is not listening to John Allen (and his million$$$ of secret Vatican Swiss Banks account) as Amnesty International by today’s standard judged the Vatican by today’s standards of justice, read about it here http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2011/05/amnesty-international-names-vatican-in.html.

By today’s standards, the Vatican is a criminal country and the 2 popes who ruled it the longest - are also criminals!!! Hoorah!!! The raw truth prevails and those "Holy Fathers" John Paul II and Benedict XVI who are so self-centered in their holiness (like the Pharisees in Jesus' time) who rpay a certain amount of Latin prayers and sorcery of the daily Mass -- are really criminals towards children with the JP2 Army - and they oppress poor peoples by the Vatican Swiss Banks - by today's standards.

By today’s standards there’s a new lawsuit against both John Paul II and Benedict XVI for a rapist-priest in Chicago whom they both covered-up together – yes, by today’s standards they were both cohorts in crime – and the charges were laid -- ironically right after the beatification of John Paul II read about them here http://popecrimes.blogspot.com/2011/06/lawsuits-against-2-popes-john-paul-ii.html.

By today’s standards, charges are laid against Benedict XVI for “Crimes against Humanity” at The Hague, read it here http://popecrimes.blogspot.com/2011/05/full-text-of-criminal-charges-against.html

The world, both Catholics and non-Christians, cannot give John Paul II the “benefit of the doubt” because he had 27 years, that’s a quarter of a century, to prove himself and he failed. John Paul II proved himself a criminal beyond the shadow of a doubt – and he proved that he had no moral conscience and as a “Holy Father” he had no compassionate heart towards children, read our article Heil Satanas JP2 Patron Saint of Pedophiles, Pederasts Rapists-Priests! John Paul II is the same yesterday and today-- he cannot protect children http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/05/heil-satanas-jp2-patron-saint-of.html

John Paul II smelled Devil’s Bowels as roses for 27 years http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/john-paul-smelled-devils-bowels-as.html

6. John Paul II’s old age is his best qualification as the Fast-Track Saint

.4.the late pope was already well into his twilight

What hogwash! John Paul II was “so old” therefore he deserves to be the fastect tracking saint? John L. Allen propaganda (or plea) for John Paul II that he was “into his twilight” and that it is “unfair to judge him by today’s standard” is a digression and not progress and which Father Hodgens of Australia puts it eloquently that John Paul II lived “frozen in time” and back to the medieval ages, read Father Hodgens litany of faults of JP2 in our related article here http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/john-paul-ii-4-millionayatollah.html .

We again point out that in 2002, when the clergy sex abuse first erupted in Boston, John Paul II was 81 years old, similar to the age of Benedict XVI when he was elected pope.

If John Paul II is the fastest track saint of the 20th century and 21st century, then he should also have had the fastest moral conscience, the wisest wisdom, the epitome of justice and fastest heart beat to protect children as the “Holy Father” of 1.1 billion Catholics…but he had none of the above, read our related article Theology and John Paul II are heartless http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2010/05/theology-and-john-paul-ii-are-heartless.html

Sainthood is now being conferred as a “gift” to an “old” pope – for physical reason of old age -- because he was “in his twilight” thus was not physically able to see with his “Holy See” the most heinous crimes against children in Christendom. John L. Allen Jr is the most insance Vaticanista, read our related article John L. Allen is the premier Vaticanist http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2010/11/premier-vaticanista-john-l-allen-jr.html

As the oldest and longest reigning Pope, John Paul II smelled Devil’s Bowels as roses for 27 years http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/john-paul-smelled-devils-bowels-as.html

John Allen corroborates exactly with the new Vatican Guidelines with this statement: His primary contribution to combating the scourge of clerical abuse…JP2 was inspiring a new generation of dedicated and holy priests. The new Vatican Guidelines do not apply to the current 37 pedophile priests of Philadelphia and to all past pedophile priests…therefore the new “saint” John Paul II does not apply either to the pedophile priests from 1950-2012 – but for future priests – inspired by the new “saint” JP2. Wow, John L. Allen Jr is the spitting image and voice of the Serpent of Adam and Eve. Read our related article, Vatican Guidelines are hogwash Vatican guidelines on sex abuse are hogwash as long as Cardinal Bernard Law sits as High Priest in Rome - apply first to him &his 80 pedophile priests http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/05/save.html

7. John Allen corroborates with the Vatican Blame Game

2…that the church has been on a learning curve

4…by the time the American scandals erupted and Maciel’s guilt became clear, the late pope was already well into his twilight.


John L. Allen Jr is clearly corroborating with the VATICAN BLAME GAME where the John Jay college blamed the eras of the 1960s and 1970s for the clergy sex abuse – and John Allen is also blaming 2 main factors -- John Paul II’s twilight old age and today’s standards -- which are non-applicable for JP2 -- read our related article VATICAN BLAME GAME http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/05/vatican-blame-game-its-them-not-us-john.html

The fact is, John Paul II had ample time to pray about it, read about it, meet with victims and pedophile priests, meet with Father Marcial Maciel and his victims who have been writing to John Paul II for years, meet with Cardinals and Bishops who covered-up his JP2 Army. Did he try it even once??

Let us not forget that Tom Doyle in 1985 presented his finding about the pedophile priests of New Orleans to John Paul II and that was 9 years after he was elected Pope when he was relatively young as in the photo --- therefore he was not in his “twilight” as John L. Allen Jr would like his readers to believe it. In 2002, John Paul II was 81 years old, same age as Benedict XVI when he first apologized at St. Peter’s Square and blamed the Devil for it before 15,000 priests, read about it here Rome celebrations of Benedict XVI and 15,000 priests who are wizards worse than Harry Potter http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/06/rome-celebrations-of-benedict-xvi-and.html.

Since 2002, that’s 3 years before his death in 2005, John Paul II had plenty of time to pass by Boston and meet with Cardinal Bernard Law who was at the heart of the earthquake, meet with those 80 pedophile-priests, meet with victims and address it in Boston, an hour’s flight to Toronto where his last World Youth Day would be held. If JP2 is beatified 6 years after his death, he also had 3 years as ample time for him to look over the priest pedophilia from 2002 to 2005. This excuse of John Allen proves his lunacy which is beyond fantasy.

But what is most suspicious is that even in his “twilight” John Paul II was writing in the same manner and in the same language as if he has the same agile mind as when he was 56 as a newly elected Pope. Even his last homily for the feast of the Annunciation of March 25, 2005 was in the same language and same tone when he was already almost in a comatose state in the hospital in Rome and his secretary said that he dictated it. Read our related article who really was controlling all the writings and speeches of John Paul II Why John Paul II is Opus Dei's Patron Saint: analysis of conference at Holy Cross Pontifical University in Rome http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/john-paul-ii-patron-of-pederasts-and.html

8. Opus Dei the mastermind behind John L. Allen Jr.

Osama bin Laden was the mastermind of the 9-11 attacks with 3,000 victims and Opus Dei was the mastermind of the JP2 Army with 15,948 victims in the USA alone, read our related article here http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/05/911-victims-5000-jp2-army-100000s-may.html

The stamps of the Opus Dei are everywhere in the words of John Allen as he craftily represents Opus Dei with the secret and anonymous words of “Those”, “They say” and “They argue”. Later on and especially at the end of his entire essay he will crown them Opus Dei members with the most positive identity as “pilgrims and devotees”. John L. Allen cleverly make the essay like a very sweet debate between “they” which represents Opus Dei and “the critics” which represent those oppose to the beatification. The beatification "may be open to debate" and so that is all that we can do is to talk and debate about it so all the Vatican is giving is talk and empty words - TALK IS CHEAP, and that is the best and final strategy of the Vatican, just keep debating but only they will have the final powers and the final say which is to follow the WORLD DOMINATION Agenda of the Opus Dei. So in the end the Vatican and the hidden Phantom of the Opus Dei prevail .

9. Lunacy of John L. Allen Jr…and his satanic timeline

In this half part of the core paragraph, John L. Allen Jr defends the new fast-track saint

5. His primary contribution to combating the scourge of clerical abuse…JP2 was inspiring
(a) a new generation of dedicated and holy priests
(b) men who take their duty of standing “in the person of Christ” seriously
(c) who are therefore less likely to dishonor their vows.

John Allen is telling the world not to judge John Paul II by today’s standards and to forget the past on what JP2 had done to cover-up his JP2 Army of past pedophiles rapists-priests during his 27 years papacy.

Oh, and then John Paul II will inspire future priests…so forget the past… forget the JP2 Army of pedophile priests. This is the epitome of the lunacy of John L. Allen Jr. and his satanic timeline telling the world – not to judge John Paul II by his past actual real life as the longest reigning 27 years pope who harmed children with his 2 evil Achilles Heels and JP2 Army -- but to judge him by the future “inspirations” he will make as “saint” JP2.

This is a satanic timeline because John L. Allen Jr is talking like the Serpent in the Garden of Eden who fooled Adam and Eve – that if they eat the fruit of the forbidden Tree, they will not die but become “like God”…and here John Allen is also fooling Catholics and his readers that “JP2 is like God Jesus Christ” (that ‘s why he has statues embracing Mary the mother of Jesus and) is the fast-track saint… except that JP2 was too old to think of Fr. Macial Maciel and Cardinal Bernard Law, but from now on -- now that he is dead and a saint… future priests will be inspired by him… and by all the books and fables the Opus Dei are publishing about “saint” JP2. This crafty deception of John Allen can only be born out of the Devil’s Bowels just like the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army were born out of the Devil’s Bowels, read more about it here http://jp2army.blogspot.com/2011/01/nazis-and-john-paul-ii-pedophiles.html.

Read our related article, John L. Allen Jr the premier Vaticanista also slept in peace in Rome as he wrote his weekly column called “The Word from Rome” as he walked in and out freely and with unlimited pass into the Papal apartments and the Vatican offices but Tom Doyle could not even get in, not once...http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/12/commentary-on-john-l-allen-jr-benedict.html

10. “Holiness” the mark of Opus Dei and mark of Lucifer

The mark of Opus Dei (like the Mark of the Beast) is the word “holy” and they are especially in John Allen’s words “holy priests. John Allen’s phrase “holy priests” is the biggest Opus Dei mark as we explained in our article about the April 1, 2011, conference for the beatification of John Paul II at the Opus Dei’s Pontifical University in Rome, Dr. Joaquin Navarro-Valls, JP2’s 27 years papal spokesperson said that “people must remember that beatification is not a judgment on a pontificate, but on the personal holiness of the candidate” read our article Why John Paul II is Opus Dei saint http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/why-john-paul-ii-is-opus-deis-patron.html And The Australian, the largest newspaper in Land Down Under is also Opus Dei owned as it uses the word “holy” in the same context as John Allen, read our analysis here Temple Police: The Australian is part of the Vatican media empire and the near-future demise of the Vatican Temple http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2011/05/temple-police-australian-is-part-of.html

"Holiness" is the daily goal of the Opus Dei while for the Jesuits it is accompanying the poor of Christ like Jon Sobrino in El Salvador and the Jesuit Refugee Service http://www.jrs.net/.

11. Opus Dei replace Jesus Christ “’standing’ on the Cross”

The mark of Opus Dei (like the Mark of the Beast) is the word “holy” and they are especially in John Allen’s words “holy priests, men who take their duty of standing “’in the person of Christ’ seriously”. Everyday, all Opus Dei priests, numeraries (celibate) must make their daily meditation on the crucifix-without-a-body because they must put (imagine) themselves into that cross per instructions of their founder, Josemaria Escriva: “When you look at a crucifix, see yourself up there. We are in Christ, then we must also be on that cross with him if we also want to have all the glory … You have to do something to get a prize… One that is for eternity comes at a price, Christ paid for it and you are in Him and With Him to get the prize…” This Opus Dei belief that -- they can replicate the Crucified Christ is really - beyond heresy – and is the epitome of narcissism and grandiosity and the fantasy as the make-believe Harry Potter magic of the Eucharist. And to think that all these Opus Dei priests and Opus Dei numeraries live only in millionaires’ rows complete with uniformed servants and feasting only on the best china. They are all narcissistic and grandiose as their founder Josemaria Escriva who spent his entire life amassing secular titles (not “holy” titles), read the titles here http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2006/11/john-paul-ii-and-saint-josemaria.html

The Opus Dei daily “ ‘holy’ exercise” of them replacing Christ on the Daily Cross explains why they have also replaced the Baby Jesus and put John Paul II instead into the arms of Mary in statues carved only by monastery nuns being sold in hundreds of Euros and dollars. It is a magical fantasy like Harry Potter really! It is nauseating and despicable to see the statues of John Paul II embracing Mary, the Mother of God where John Paul II is now equivalent to Jesus Christ, see the expensive statues here in our article The narcissism and grandiosity of John Paul II http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/narcissism-and-grandiosity-of-john-paul.html We ask our readers to DO NOT BUY John Paul II expensive statues and beatification memorabilia but to donate their moneys to Red Cross and other secular charities instead. The Vatican in now being investigated for money laundering 23 million euros from the IOR, the funds of nuns and millionaire religious congregations at the Vatican. But that’s peanuts, read our related article Holy Holy Heist! John Paul II WYD had no role with Arab youths who liberated Egypt from Mubarak who stole then deposited billions into Vatican Swiss Banks

There is Mary the Madonna with the small Child Jesus, Mary in the Pieta with the dead Jesus, and now there is John Paul II standing up – bigger than the Baby Jesus and bigger than the dead Jesus -- being fully embraced by Mary which is the peak of Satan’s Pride of the Opus Dei that can only match that of the Lucifer who equates himself with God by declaring “I will make myself like the Most High” and so he refused to bow down to God and had to be cast down from Heaven by St. Micheal the Archangel.

"How you have fallen from heaven, O Lucifer star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations! Isaiah 14:12

12. The fast-track saint John Paul II fulfills Lucifer’s desires (Isaiah 14:12-24)

You said in your heart, "I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High." Isaiah 14:12-24

Jesus said. "…I beheld Satan as lightning FALL from heaven" (Luke 10:18) Well, that Jesus has been removed replaced by the fat old ugly body of Heil Satanas John Paul II, read more here http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/04/narcissism-and-grandiosity-of-john-paul.html

============================================
This is part 2 of the analysis of John L. Allen's essay in NEWSWEEK Magazine on the "Fast-Track Saint" John Paul II. We choose the honor of this blog of the JP2 Army (among our 5 blogs) to post this analysis of John Allen's essay on John Paul II because NEWSWEEK Magazine is read by millions around the world. John Paul II is not a saint because he has evil Achilles Heels for covering up the pedophile priests during his longest reigning 27 years papacy, read more in our sister blog The John Paul II Millstone http://jp2m.blogspot.com/. John Allen's job is to make people forget the truth about the evil Achilles Heel of John Paul II -- the JP2 Army.

13. Analysis of the Entire Essay


Here we will bring you step-by-step on the trail of John L. Allen Jr the Serpent of Deception of the 20th and 21st cenutry. We will put his paragraph in italics and our comments below it. The entire essay is at the bottom of this post.

14. The title

Fast-Track Saint

Fast-Track is perhaps the newest most important business word in the 21st century and is therefore a very sweet title, like a transquilizer shot. All businesses today must prove their efficiency by how they provide fast-track services – from Wall Street to FedEx - that would equal the same service which were provided at snail time in the past century but in today’s standard at the fastest time possible.

The fact is the beatification of John Paul II is like a shot-gun marriage, by hook or by crook, the groom is being forced to marry against his rights to wait and against his will.

Catholics are also being forced to idolized John Paul II against their rights and against their will without due proper investigation of his sainthood. Unfortunately, the office of the Devil’s Advocate was abolished by John Paul II himself so he could go on with his Vatican Saint-Factory, read our related article here about the fast track saint of the latter part of the 20th century, St. Josemaria Escriva http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/04/tracking-john-l-allen-jr-of-ncr-highest.html

Opus Dei and the Vatican are judging John Paul II for the “personal holiness” he had and the “miracle he now performs after he is dead. So what? Who cares about his miracles when his JP2 Army victims are suffering a “living hell” until their death? John Paul’s past as a 27-years pope matters. Read our related article http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/03/it-is-time-for-french-revolution-at.html. John Paul’s holiness was worthless and is of no use for the 21st century, read our related article Spiritual healing, the Eucharist and the Rosary bring NEITHER JUSTICE NOR SAFETY FOR CHILDREN, the preys of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2010/05/spiritual-healing-eucharist-and-rosary.html

Our related article John Paul II miraculously cures his German barber of hernia in Rome… as the John Paul II Pedophile Priest Army jolts Germany http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2010/03/john-paul-ii-miraculously-cures-his.html

Note that, when the priest pedophilia erupted in Boston is early February 2002, John Paul II was on his way to his last WYD World Youth Day narcissistic rally in July in Toronto. After WYD, 2 months later, he canonized Escriva in October and released the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary. When Cardinal Bernard Law was forced to resign in shame for confessing to transferring 80 pedophile priests from one parish to another in Boston, John Paul II elevated him in Rome to be the High Priest of the St. Mary Major, the “mother of all basilicas in Rome”, read our related article here http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2010/02/cardinal-bernard-law-must-resign.html.

Our point is, if John Paul II was lucid enough “in his twilight” to be canonizing the msot controversial saint Escriva and releasing new Mysteries of the Rosary, certainly he was lucid enough to comprehend the priest pedophilia erupting in the USA that had 5 times the victims of the recent 9-11 attacks a year before.

15. The JP2 photo in Newsweek Magazine is deceptive


Elliott Erwitt / Magnum
Pope John Paul II, 1978

The 1978 photo was brilliantly chosen and strategically placed behind the subliminal subtitle of John Allen “Why is the Vatican rushing the beatification of a pope who oversaw its worst scandal in centuries?” John Paul II in 1978 is a young man and newly elected pope. This is the Zeffirelli Hollywood strategy because Hollywood likes a young face that is why movie starts go to lengthy Botox shots to try to look again like when they were starlets. This young photo is also used as propaganda to appeal to the young men and women of World Youth Day. This is a very deceptive photo because it counters or sugar-coat the “worst scandal in centuries” which erupted only when John Paul II was 80 years old, in 2002, on his way to his last World youth Day in Toronto. If John L. Allen is honest about his article, he would at least show an old John Paul II who had already spent more than a quarter of a century “overseeing the worst scandal” but which JP2 cleverly covered-up and denied during his entire 27 years papacy.

We hope that this article will help other to see through the deceptions and serpentine strategies of John L. Allen Jr. as he spread the Opus Dei WORLD DOMINATION Agenda in everything he writes and say everywhere he goes whether it is for NCR or this time in the American news magazine of Newsweek, an Opus Dei member of the Opus Dei world media empire. John L. Allen Jr. is the highest paid journalist on the planet earth paid by the Vatican Bank which is managed and controlled by the Opus Dei. The Vatican Bank of course owns the Swiss Banks where moneys of despots and tyrants from around the world are deposited and therefore the Vatican and the Opus Dei are responsible for he perpetual oppression of poor peoples and poor countries.

The strategy of John L. Allen Jr. as the Pied Piper is to make everyone reading his article FEEL GOOD about the Vatican, Benedict XVI and John Paul II about the most heinous crimes against children committed by the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army. John L. Allen Jr's pattern is very similar to that of the Australian newspaper, the largest in Australia, who recently published two articles attacking the retired priest Eric Hodgens in Australia who wrote a scathing article about John Paul II listing his faults, read our related article of a few days ago on The Opus Dei signature words are a permanent stamp in John L. Allen Jr. articles and all Opus Dei media conglomerates like the Newsweek and the Australian. Read our related article about The Australian newspaper in Temple Police: The Australian is part of the Vatican media empire and the near-future demise of the Vatican Temple http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2011/05/temple-police-australian-is-part-of.html

16. B-Day! B-Day! John L. Allen Jr. responds to B-Day

The “fast-track” title was probably – ironically – taken from this article B-DAY to counterattack it . This B-DAY essay TKO totally knocks out John Allen Jr’s deceptions to its core. But it is precisely why he had to write the essay for Newsweek to counterattack to B-DAY which Benedict XVI and the Opus Dei must be trembling as they read it.

Here are excerpts from B-DAY:
Read the full text of B-Day in the John Paul II Millstone
Bold emphasis added

Indeed, to their mind, the fast-track beatification of this particular pontiff and its delirious reception positively embodies the present delusional and dysfunctional state of local Churches everywhere. For the injustice, arrogance, blindness, cowardice and suicidal self-satisfaction that afflicts the post-conciliar Church is not only exemplified by the diabolically disoriented Modernist episcopates tyrannising the West. It is personified, too, by neo-conservatives who, to a greater or lesser extent, acquiesce in the destructive status quo promoted by a Pope they idolise.

Make no mistake, if D-Day marks the day on which a major military campaign begins with a view to ultimate victory, then 1 May 2011 is surely B-Day: John Paul II's beatification marking the start of the push for his canonisation and the final crowning of the Balthasarian revolt he led like no other.

... orthodox Catholics ask whether his papacy has been a success. ... The maladies that have infected the Church since the Second Vatican Council (at which he was an enthusiastic participant) haven’t been remedied. And one of the worst scandals in Catholic history erupted on his watch: the revelation that homosexual priests had been abusing boys. This was a natural result of the homosexual domination of American seminaries... well before John Paul’s papacy; but he seemed to have had no clue that it was going on and hardly to have believed it when he learned. That doesn’t speak well for his supervision.

Nor does his studied refusal to act against the perverts evince an odour of sanctity; especially in light of the meticulous exposés delivered to him. Indeed, that an obscene figure like Marcial Maciel and the Legion of Christ scandal will forever hang like a devilish black cloud over his pontificate smacks of divine justice. Sadly, however, there was no canonical justice: no Devil's Advocate to call John Paul II to account for blithely ignoring anguished appeals from Maciel's victims; or to ascertain his awareness of Maciel's bagmen who bought him Roman influence and protection for years.

Fast-Track Saint

Why is the Vatican rushing the beatification of a pope who oversaw its worst scandal in centuries?

When Pope John Paul II is beatified on May 1 before an audience of hundreds of thousands in St. Peter’s Square, the event will mark a new land-speed record for arrival at the final stage before sainthood, beating Mother Teresa’s previous mark by 15 days. Some have objected to the haste, particularly given persistent questions about John Paul’s handling of the sexual-abuse crisis in the Catholic Church. Yet if the child is father to the man, this is a clear case of the pope being father to the saint.

John Paul notoriously presided over what wags called a “saint-making factory” during his almost 27 years atop the Catholic Church. He produced more beatifications (1,338) and canonizations (482) than all previous popes combined—and since Catholic tradition acknowledges 263 previous popes stretching back nearly 2,000 years, that’s no mean feat.

This avalanche of halos was the result of a deliberate policy. In 1983, John Paul overhauled the sainthood process to make it quicker, cheaper, and less adversarial, eliminating the office of “Devil’s advocate” and dropping the required number of miracles. His aim was to lift up contemporary role models of holiness in order to show a jaded secular world that sanctity is alive in the here and now.

A substantial share of John Paul’s picks lived in the 20th century, from Padre Pio to Mother Teresa to Josemaría Escrivá, the founder of Opus Dei. In that sense, John Paul’s fast-track beatification is a natural byproduct of his own policies, which have been largely upheld by his successor and erstwhile right-hand man, Pope Benedict XVI.

Yet John Paul’s cause is also a reminder, at least for some, of why waiting a little while isn’t always such a bad thing.

In theory, sainthood is supposed to be a democratic process, beginning with a popular grassroots sentiment that a given figure was a saint. Six years ago, the evidence of that conviction vis-à-vis Karol Wojtyla, the given name of John Paul II, seemed like a slam-dunk.

This was, after all, the pope who brought down communism, who was seen in the flesh by more people than any other figure in human history, who reinvigorated Catholicism after a period of doubt and confusion, and who gave rise to an entire “John Paul II” generation of young priests and bishops eager to take the church’s message to the street.

Crowds chanted “Santo subito!”—“Sainthood now!”—at his funeral mass. The cardinals who gathered to elect the next pope signed a petition asking whoever it might be to waive the normal five-year waiting period to launch a cause, which Benedict XVI swiftly did. Adulatory coverage in the global media amounted to a sort of secular canonization, making the formal ecclesiastical process seem almost anticlimactic.

Today, however, that enthusiasm has been tempered by revelations about the role of the late pope and his aides in the sexual-abuse crisis—by any reckoning, the most destructive Catholic scandal in centuries, and one that critics say metastasized on John Paul’s watch.

The signature case is that of the late Mexican priest Father Marcial Maciel Degollado, founder of the controversial conservative religious order the Legionaries of Christ. John Paul II was a great patron of Maciel, admiring the religious order’s unapologetic fidelity to Catholic teaching, its loyalty to Rome and the papacy, and its success in generating vocations among younger Catholics.

Yet in the mid-1990s, charges began to surface that Maciel’s public face concealed a deeply flawed private life. A complaint was filed in Rome with the office headed by then-cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, today Pope Benedict, alleging that Maciel had sexually abused a number of former members of the order. That case was tabled until late 2001, and no action was taken until after John Paul’s death.

Even when Ratzinger’s staff began to become convinced there was fire behind the smoke, other senior figures in John Paul’s regime gave Maciel aid and comfort. Maciel accompanied John Paul II on several foreign voyages and was extolled by top church officials as a role model for his work with youth. At one stage, the most powerful department in the Vatican, the Secretariat of State, denied there was any case against Maciel, at the very moment Ratzinger’s office was reaching the conclusion that Maciel was indeed guilty.

Under the new pope, the dam broke. In May 2006 Benedict XVI ordered Maciel to withdraw to a life of “prayer and penance,” and the Legionaries acknowledged his responsibility for a wide range of abuses and acts of misconduct, including that he fathered children out of wedlock with at least two women with whom he maintained relationships.

In the eyes of critics, the Maciel case illustrates a pattern of denial and obstruction of justice on sex abuse during the John Paul years. In cases where local bishops attempted to formally expel abusers from the priesthood, in a process known as “laicization,” Rome often counseled caution. Vatican authorities until very recently turned a blind eye to “mandatory reporter” policies that would have obligated bishops to report these crimes to police and civil prosecutors.

The extent to which that pattern has been reversed under Benedict XVI may be open to debate, but that it largely describes what happened under John Paul is, by now, a matter of record.

Those inclined to give John Paul the benefit of the doubt argue that the church has been on a learning curve and it’s unfair to judge him by today’s standards. Further, they say, by the time the American scandals erupted and Maciel’s guilt became clear, the late pope was already well into his twilight. His primary contribution to combating the scourge of clerical abuse, they argue, was inspiring a new generation of dedicated and holy priests, men who take their duty of standing “in the person of Christ” seriously, and who are therefore less likely to dishonor their vows.

Whatever one makes of those arguments, the Vatican denies that declaring a saint is tantamount to ratifying all the policy choices of his pontificate. When the 19th-century Pope Pius IX was beatified in 2000, for instance, Vatican officials took pains to say it was not an endorsement of his Jewish policy, which famously included forcing the Jews of Rome back into their ghetto and refusing to return a Jewish child to his parents after he had been secretly baptized.

Sainthood, these officials say, means that despite whatever failures of judgment and foresight marred a pope’s reign, he was nevertheless personally a holy man. Certainly few seriously question John Paul II’s rich personal prayer life, his strong mystical streak, or his deep and abiding faith.

Of course, Vatican spin no longer carries the weight it once did, and in many quarters critics will still see the beatification as an attempt to whitewash John Paul’s record on the crisis. One test of how concerned the Vatican is about that reaction may come in whether John Paul II remains on the fast track, moving to the final step of canonization in record time, or whether the case for caution prevails.

The pilgrims and devotees who will throng St. Peter’s Square on May 1 will doubtless be grateful for a chance to recapture some of that old John Paul II magic. Others, however, will wonder if this is a case in which the Vatican’s legendary penchant for thinking in centuries would serve it better.

BOOK REVIEW
by the author, Betty Silberstein

This book was born from the effort of a common person to be acquainted with an organism which has in the secrecy one of its most outstanding characteristics: the Opus Dei, or The Work. This work presents itself as a valuable instrument for the understanding of this phenomenon embedded in the Catholic Church.

Knowledge is certainly the most efficient instrument in the combat of indoctrination. And, as the title announces, the goal of this book is to alert families about the insidious way Opus Dei filters through them, in order to take their children away afterwards.

The reading of this book is extremely useful not only for Catholic families, because this organization can attack anyone, Catholic or not. Once it gets close to people who they want to co-opt, the members do not even explain their true objectives or their actual practices. Therefore, the publication of Opus Dei addresses, companies, schools and entities linked to it, is something of very high value, since parents have now the possibility to know that the place their children are attending is not only a “kids’ club”, or a simple catechism class, or free tutoring classes, but, mostly, a recruitment center for young persons from an extremely reactionary Catholic entity.

Out of the office

I'm busy cleaning our apartment and making preparations because on Monday my mother and her husband are landing at San Francisco Airport! I'm so excited :)! 

The last time I saw them (in real life) was 10 months ago, it'll be great to hug and kiss them again. We're going to do a lot of sightseeing here in the Bay Area and we're going on a roadtrip all the way to Utah. 

So I'm going to be away from the blog. The eleventh monkey is on vacation! Hope everyone is having a great summer. See you in about three weeks!

ASS OVER TEA KETTLE - union jack

We are well known for our rain here on the west coast. It usually
 rains for a long time but it's relatively light compared to other
 places. Last night was a different story. All of a sudden it poured
 like a mid summer Florida storm. I in the mean time was worried
 about some items outside so I went to the top of the deck stairs and
 started down. Well I made it to the bottom however I was no
 longer on my feet. Yes I took a fall the moment my runner stepped
 on the wet stair. My hip landed on the ground, but my rib and wrist
 hit the concrete.
"GEORGE!!!!"
Well he came and got me back in the house and I was banished to
 the bed for the rest of the night with ice.
My hip is bruised, thank god for that extra cheese cake,
 my rib feels fine but my wrist is sore.
So today I had to come up with light duty work.

I also couldn't do my regular job because my PC is gone to Future Shop
to be scolded and straightened out, so here I sit getting familiar with George's PC.

So today I decided to sit still, let my wrist heal and be a creative painter.

It's a beautiful serpentine dresser call *JACK*.
He's not done but I am for the night.


I also manage to finish a pair of wooden pillar candle holders made in India.
I got them at a yard sale recently to paint and distressed. The
plan is to take them to the community show next week but you'll
 have to wait and see if I can give them up.


Here are the close ups of the accents I promised the other day
on the lingerie chest I finished. Let me know what you think.

Today I finished this sailor. The crochet pattern is available in my crochet shop: kandjdolls.etsy.com


Sew Indy

1. Could you tell us a bit about yourself?
I am from a small town outside of Rocky Mountain House in Alberta, Canada!! And I live their with my fiance Trevor, and our little pup Coco. I am 22 years old, and I {love} to sew! If I'm not sewing you can find me snowboarding, playing baseball, camping, hiking, and biking. I like to drink pom mojitos, and any kind of white wine... NOT RED, yuck! I don't like cupcakes, not even a little bit, so don't buy me any! And right now the only song that plays from my iPod has to be by Rihanna.
2. What do you make and how did you get into this?
I make an assortment of handmade goodies... cappuccino cozies...
Crayon cozies...
Quilts... blankies... quilted coasters with matching stay put towels...
And my latest Indy Earrings!!
I can't even remember how I got into making my handmade goodies... I think I was surfing the web one day and came across The Pleated Poppy website, and then the Gussy Sews website, and the ball just started rolling from there... I thought to myself, "hey! I can do that too!"

3. Why did you name your shop Sew Indy?
I named my shop Sew Indy for my love of sewing and skateboarding/snowboarding. It started out as Indy Isis Designs... but I kept thinking people would have no idea what kind of business that would be. I wanted people to know that snowboarders could be sewists too! It's not just something little grannies do... there are sooo many young people who make a living selling their sewing, knitting, and crochet goodies!

4. Where and when do you like to create?
I create whenever I can, wherever I can. I am fortunate enough to have my very own sewing room, and a hubs that doesn't seem to mind how messy it can get at times {I love you Trevor}. Sew Indy isn't my only job though, I also have a full time office job which at times can get in the way of my creativeness but at the moment it hasn't been too challenging. I'm either creating late into the night or early in the morning... And I do most of my social media work through out the day.
5. Who inspires you?
All the girls {and guys} who were in my Indie Biz class inspire me! I can't wait to see where everyone is with their business in the next few years and I hope to keep in touch with lots of people. Everyone was so helpful and encouraging!

6. What’s the best thing you’ve made so far?
The best thing I have made so far would have to be my first quilt... I just love all the color combinations, the fabric, and how it looks vintage. I'm not sure if I even want to sell it, I might keep it as a keepsake, or for my future child.
7. When you create what do you like to drink, snack on, listen to, or watch?
I like to drink beer when I create...HAHA jk! I usually drink coffee, or good ol' H2O... I like to keep hydrated and have a water bottle with me because sometimes I get carried away and can spend hours sewing and not even think to eat or drink.

8. What skill would you love to learn and who would you like to be your teacher?
I would like to go to snowboard camp one day, MGT (More Good Times) Snowboard Camp to be exact! And learn how to do some sweet rail tricks from Leanne Pelosi or Tara Dakides. I was going to go this year but I had an unfortunate snowboard accident that scared me pretty good and chickened out and never signed up :(.

9. What are you working on now and what are your goals for the future?
Right now, I'm working on getting stocked piled so I can go and sell at a Farmers Market or Craft Show. I also launched my Etsy shop on April 11th for our Indie Biz Class Launch Day, and I'm working on making my first sale, and networking. My goals for the future include making Sew Indy a full time job, attending at least 3 Farmers Markets, and having some work done {on my blog of course}.

10. What are your five favorite websites?
Gussy Sews: I love Maggie's blogging style and her bags they are too cool. I just ordered her Daniella bag for my sister, and it comes with a clutch that I'm going to give to my mom!

The Pleated Poppy: Lindsey also has a really great blog style. She includes personal and business posts, and she lets us see her sewing studio which I think is soo pretty! Oh and she loves mason jars too, just like me.

Lisa Leonard: I love Lisa's jewelry, she takes amazing pictures, and she just seems like such a great person.

Facebook: Duh it's facebook what's not to like... all your friends are there!

Blogger: I just really enjoy blogging, and reading others blogs!

11. Where can we find you online?
