A Mighty Wind Gathers Force

By Charlie Johnston

As I promised earlier in the week, we have announced our line-up of speakers at the CORAC Conference to be held in the Black Hills from June 25-27. On the dais will be:

David Daleiden: Founder of the Center for Medical Progress – and the single most driven, successful pro-life activist of my lifetime. He is the man who did the undercover video recordings of abortion doctors and activists – revealing the illegal trafficking of fetal body parts and major abuses. For his work, he has been relentlessly persecuted by the denizens of the culture of death – but he persists joyfully in doing God’s work. The evidence is forcing even some establishment media to take notice. Many of you saw Daleiden’s appearance on Tucker Carlson last week – and now this week Newsweek has published an op-ed from him on the University of Pittsburgh’s grotesque fetal experiments and shadowy ties to Planned Parenthood. David will speak on enduring under intense hostile persecution.

Desmond Birch: Author of Trial, Tribulation and Triumph – and perhaps the foremost living eschatologist in the world. Eschatology can be simply described as the study of final things. There is a ton of misinformation out there. Yes, these are the End Times – but many confuse that eschatological term to mean the end of the world. End Times is a specific eschatological term to describe the world since the Resurrection of Christ – NOT the end of time. Birch will speak on what the Church teaches from the perspective of Augustinian eschatology. I have asked him to have a supply of his books available.

Chris Godfrey: The founder of Life Athletes, Godfrey is a passionate advocate for Christian and traditional marriage and family values. His advocacy not only promotes these values as right and true – but as the most effective way to live a joyful and fruitful life, with practical counsel on how to build and sustain healthy families in these times of strife. Godfrey was the starting right guard for the 1987 Superbowl Champion New York Giants. Rumor has it that he will have his Superbowl ring with him.

Jim Graham: President of Texas Right-to-Life, the single strongest right-to-life group in the country. TRTL advocates for life from conception until natural death. It trains and places college students as pro-life coordinators on campuses throughout the state – and is one of the most influential advocacy groups of any type during legislative sessions in Texas. It has just had a very successful session, encouraging the legislature to pass and the governor to sign the Texas Heartbeat Act, banning all elective abortions after a pre-born child’s heartbeat is detected. Graham will talk about how to fight and prevail in a pagan culture.

U.S. Grace Force Podcast: The U.S. Grace Force, founded by Fr. Richard Heilman, is the very archetype of muscular Christianity – living the prayer of doing. I love it! Its popular weekly podcast, hosted by Fr. Heilman and Doug Barry will be taped from the Conference with monitors set up so attendees can watch the taping. While Fr. Heilman will be at his Parish in Wisconsin and Barry will likely be in Texas (though he is trying to re-arrange things so he can physically be in South Dakota with us), the podcast will be focused on CORAC and our speakers.

A fabulous team of volunteers, led by Mary Lapchak, Kris Rehfeld and Sue Domen, has been hard at work for months to put this all together. I look forward to seeing you in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota at the end of June. Register now to reserve your spot!


Last night I watched the Lifetime movie, Christmas a la Mode. It’s a Hallmark-style Christmas movie and I have confessed before that those are one of my sentimental weaknesses. But I have been wanting to watch this one for months because one of our CORAC members, Kathy Harum, plays the mother in this movie. Harum has done some other Hallmark-style movies and had a role in the mainstream Mark Wahlberg vehicle, Patriots Day.

I chuckled because, early on in the movie, Harum is portrayed as someone who always wants to give plenty of leftovers for guests to take home with them. At a presentation I gave in southeast Massachusetts, she gave me a big red tote bag to carry the leftovers the hosts had for me. The bag is so handy, I have been using it since for all sorts of things – and had it sitting beside me as I watched the movie. Life imitates art.

We have a lot of artists, including some actors, who are members and supporters of CORAC and this website. Unfortunately, I hear from more and more of them how “cancel culture” is making opportunities for them increasingly sparse. Mainstream Hollywood actors who are Christian mainly keep their heads low these days. Those involved in non-traditional venues, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and various captive movie channels, are increasingly being frozen out if they make their faith obvious. Thankfully, there are rumblings from places like the Daily Wire (which has set up a film division) and crowdfunding operations such as The Chosen, which will provide some new opportunities for faithful actors. But these are just in embryonic stages – and are not enough to effectively counter the McCarthy-style blacklisting and purging of Christians in the arts and film industries. With all the things going on in the world, righting this ugly wrong is not a priority for me – but opportunistically, if I find ways to help ameliorate it or to help Christians in the professional arts to band together effectively, I will.


One of my favorite artists, the gifted young singer and songwriter, Kay Clarity, has been working hard on “Cassia and Myrhh,” a library of Catholic music designed to help “fumigate” the world, to help lay the foundations of real peace again. There is no charge for the download. She is putting it together in four ‘chapters,’ the first being the Gregorian Chapter – and is currently working on the Hymn Chapter. If you find this a worthy project to support, go here. Regardless, enjoy the music as it is made available. Never underestimate the power of the arts to transform our world. As we each give our little fish to Christ, he multiplies and prepares a banquet for those who love Him!


We have gotten off to an excellent start to our conference fundraising drive. I have only had one complaint come through on the new donation portal – and am convinced that was a browser compatibility issue. Everything else is flowing through swimmingly, and the security protocols are successfully defanging attack efforts thus far.

Thank you for standing with us for faith, family and freedom. Keep those cards and letters coming, folks!

I have been thinking a lot lately about the last lines from Bette Midler’s song, The Rose. It could really be the theme song for my attitude in these ugly times. So many see decay and collapse proceeding with vigor around us. I do, too. But what I see most clearly are the early signs of renewal and rebirth – and sometimes, I tear up with joy contemplating God’s tender mercies for us, when we have earned nothing but rebuke. I’ll just end with those lines that keep running through my head (with the edit of one word):

“Just remember, in the winter,

Far beneath the bitter snows,

Lies the seed that, with the Son’s love,

In the spring, becomes the rose.”

    It brought tears to my eyes too!!!

    Lots of little signs today which inspires me to think…yes…God is working miracles of mercy in all of our lives!🥰

    Firstly, my sailor brother and his wife are in some pretty heavy air! He sent a picture of the radar all around them in the Atlantic and they were/are in a ring of fire of bright red storms. Hopefully they are out of it currently! They have St Brendan blessed medallion in their galley (blessed by Fr Francis) and I always ask Stella Maris to be with them too!!!

    This piece of Charlie’s has a sailboat ⛵️ with the title, “A mighty wind gathers force!”

    Secondly, my bro’s sojourn made me think of Kay Clarity’s beautiful vocal piece, Stella Maris aka star of the sea!!! I couldn’t remember her last name and voila…there she is! (Of course Charlie made clear to me her last name in the comment earlier today 😀

    Thirdly, My son Frankie has been sending me pics all day of his new backyard with lots and lots of knock out roses 🌹!!! Ha!!! And Charlie’s piece ends with beautiful red roses 🌹 and signs of hope!!!

    I dunno 🤷🏻‍♀️ coincidental?!??

    I think not.

    I agree with Charlie! I believe “God’s tender mercies,” are beginning to bud! Signs!!! Just imagine what more she has coming! Oh the joy of watching God reveal Himself to our poor bleeding world! What joy it is to be a herald and a witness to the triumph of the immaculate heart of Mary! Ave Maria Stella Maris 🥰🌹✝️⛵️🇺🇸📿🙏🌊🐿🐶

    1. Linda: when you said that you always pray to the Stella Maris for your brother on his ship, that reminded me of the passage in the life of the Blessed Virgin by Mary of Agreda (private revelation) where she describes the journey of Mary with St. John to Ephesus by sea:

      “With the compassion of a most loving Mother for those who trusted their lives to the indomitable
      fury of the sea in navigating over its waves, She most fervently besought the Almighty to protect from its dangers all who should call upon her name and ask for her intercession. The Lord immediately granted this petition and promised to favor whoever upon the sea should carry some image of Her and should sincerely look upon this Star of the sea, most blessed Mary, for help in its perils”.

        Thank you for sharing the description of the journey of Mary of Agreda with St John to Ephesus by sea!!! That is just splendid!!!

        I shared with them last night Kay clarity’s song, “Star of the sea!” There is just something so mysterious about the power of the ocean. Even Lake Erie can be dangerous in gale force winds. One race we were in when I was a kid, two grown men lost their lives when there sailboat ⛵️ capsized! We were out there at times when we had no business to be out there but weather can kick up whenever it wants!😂 long races. No cell phones back then.

        Always better to simply pray to Our Mother Ave Maria Stella Maris 🥰🥰🥰

        1. Linda, good question! The account in the book isn’t really all that specific but it says they started from the port of Joppa, now Jaffa, which is on the Mediterranean coast of present-day Israel and Ephesus is/was in present-day Turkey on the coast facing Greece, south of modern Izmir. So that’s a journey of some hundreds of miles. Given that the small ships of those days always tried to follow the coast where possible (no compasses & navigating by the stars and landmarks) it would have taken probably a couple of months, as they had to depend on favourable winds and would have called at many ports along the way, for supplies, trading etc.

          The actual remains of Our Lady’s house are preserved outside ancient Ephesus, and they were found owing to a 19th century French missionary Priest following the very clear description of another visionary, Bl. Catherine Emmerich, which is a fascinating story in itself:

    1. Indeed, Daniel rocks. He’s been a long time friend here AND was featured as a guest columnist back at TNRS. One of my favorite pieces which he wrote was fittingly entitled: “Remnant Faithful: We Need the Chastisements Also.”

      As Charlie noted about Daniel’s most recent release: “…this piece is absolutely breathtaking in its scope and originality of thought, while staying fully grounded in logic and evidence.” Praying that Daniel continues to be overshadowed by Holy Spirit.

        1. I did that earlier today, Beckita, after linking to his writing from Spiritdaily. I admire his integrity, honesty, logic, etc. etc.

          “…..see decay and collapse proceeding…” around us, yay! I was just telling my husband about this, God exposing the darkness as part of the “cleanup”. As others have noted, Gates has been knocked from his pedestal by all the negative things written about him since the divorce was announced. Happy to see now that more and more is being exposed about Fauci’s evil plans. It’s pretty much out now that he was involved with funding “the lab”, and was behind “change of function” research. Maybe it was Gateway Pundit that said he, Fauci, is responsible for many deaths. I would strongly agree, but we’ll leave that to God to sort out!

          So come on, Lord, keep exposing the evil one and all who help him! Come Holy Spirit!!

            1. PGS. I might be able to remember the order that way🤔 I remember when we used to race sailboats ⛵️ as a kid, I couldn’t remember which was port and which was starboard to save my life!🤣 finally I resolved it in my head that port and starboard when looking towards the bow where exactly the same as P.S. aka post script! From then on, when looking towards the Bow I knew which side was port and which side was starboard 🥳 whatever side the sails were on was the side you were on. This was important on races for the boats on starboard had the right of way. So if another sailboat was coming at you on port, they had to steer away from you. In the beginning of any race it was always desirable to go over the starting line on starboard. Sailboat racing was always very strategic! My dad was amazing on race starts! Desmond you know all this stuff too 🤣

              So circling back…PGS … “pg” is a good movie rating🤣 and then tack on the “s!” Lol

              I’m such a weirdo 🤣😂🥳🎉

            2. Beckita I think I’m remembering incorrectly about right of way. I think if your sail is on the port side you have right of way. The air comes across your starboard side.

              Rule 1: When you are on the same tack as the other boat, the leeward boat has the right-of-way. Rule 2: When you are on opposite tacks, the starboard tack boat has the right-of-way. Rule 3: If you are overtaking the other boat, or it is overtaking you, the boat ahead (the overtaken boat) has the right-of-way.

              1. This is in Desmond’s area of expertise, Linda. I’m the wild Peace Corps Volunteer who boarded a Danish logging ship, ready to earn my passage by working in the kitchen where no one spoke English, only to be refused entry into the galley – conveyed in an English-Danish-sign language way – as there had been a mutiny the day before with disgusted sailors tossing their plates as frisbies at the cook. I still laugh about my tugboat on the Atlantic which was caught in mighty waves and chugged along while we chased our soup bowls sliding all over the table on which we were eating. Gearing up for another wild ride through an even mightier Storm. 🙂

        1. Inspiring picture and quote, Beckita. It reminded me of Queen Esther;

          “And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

          Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai: “Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”.

  8. Your Prayers needed desperately!
    Thank you for this post, Charlie. Yes, it brought tears to my eyes too, but for a different reason than most. I have spent that last six days in a hospital in Santa Rosa CA, to be with my fiancee, Phyllis, who was involved in a terrible accident last Sunday. We had decided to get married only two weeks ago. Phyllis has been living with friends in Lake County, Ca, where the accident occurred.

    She was involved in a head-on, collision with a small truck and was airlifted to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. No one knew where she was until that afternoon when I finally called the CHP after not hearing anything from her. The ICU nurse gave me a list of her injuries, which included a fractured pelvis, broken ribs, broken jaw, broken clavicle and scapula, facial fracture and some bleeding and a bruise on her brain. She also had a blood clot in her leg. Her breathing is being assisted by a ventilator until she regains consciousness.

    They operated on her pelvis on Wednesday, which took about three hours, but appears to have been successful. They also inserted a little filter in her vein to make sure the blood clot did not get up to her lungs. I was able to talk to the neurologist today and he said the two CAT scans they have done show that the bleeding in her head is getting better.

    She has been unconscious since they brought her in, but she did open her eyes just a little this morning. They say being unconscious is normal for such a trauma, as the brain has to go through a kind of reset, but she has been unconscious now for six days and they are worried that it could possibly be a permanent condition. We saw the car yesterday and it is so mangled, especially on the drivers side, that it is a miracle she lived at all. Her brain probably had a severe jolt from such an impact. They are doing an MRI today to see if they can determine the cause of her unconsciousness. We are getting the results tomorrow (Saturday).

    So, please, please, all who read this, pray for healing for Phyllis. She has had a lot of ups and downs in her life, as have I. I lost my wife five years ago so we both saw our wedding as a wonderful way to get older together with a little peace (she is 75 and I am 78). She is a wonderful, caring woman, with a big heart and not an ounce of guile in her. This is a picture I sent her the Sunday she was injured, and which she never saw. It is of the first roses to appear in my garden this year, and the reason the song had such an impact on me. It gave me a good reason to express in tears the tremendous ache in my heart.
    Thank you for all your prayers.

    God bless,
    Robert Johnson

      At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying,
      “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
      And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, and said,
      “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children,
      you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
      Whoever humbles himself like this child,
      he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
      Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me;
      but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,
      it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck
      and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Mt 18:1-6)

      Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray.
      The disciples rebuked the people;
      but Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them;
      for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
      And he laid his hands on them and went away. (Mt 19:13-15)

    1. I haven’t been on for a while, trying to catch up again, but I am still praying for all here, you and your intentions are in my prayers often.
      Update on my husband, he didn’t get the second jab. Here is the miracle:
      He had every intention on getting the second one even though the first one advanced his muscle disease. He is still in intense pain from the first one.
      The morning of his appointment I prayed a 20 decade Rosary, went to Confession and Mass and offered it up for him.
      When I came home he was still intending on going, no matter the videos we showed him from doctors giving evidence that this wasn’t good. His mental health hasn’t been the best lately, either, so that has made matters a little more challenging.
      My last chance was talking about the shedding that this jab does, and how it can affects others, especially our daughter. Didn’t work. He left anyway. I was unusually calm and had faith and trust that God’s will would be done in this but my daughter’s anxiety was in high gear. Looking for some last minute advice I shot off a text to our sweet Kris Rehfeld. She suggested a PMT and to plead the Precious Blood of Jesus over him. So Chels and I each prayed a PMT and the prayer of The Precious Blood of Jesus, (we were praying it at the time his appointment was supposed to start), and about 15 minutes later he called and said he was sitting in the parking lot and hadn’t gotten it! Thank you Lord!
      He had gone in to his appointment and talked to the nurse and asked her about some of the things I had showed him, and she confirmed they were true! She proceeded to suggest that since his muscle disease hadn’t calmed down and that the jab raises blood pressure in diabetics, that he not get the shot yet, and he listened! None of the four doctors that he had seen between the first jab and the appt for the second would confirm that his muscle disease advancement was the result of the jab.
      The miracles? I believe it was the Lord sending the right spiritual advice and putting the right nurse in place. So I guess we got a twofer. This doesn’t mean he isn’t planning on getting it in the future, because he is, but for now, I’ll take this little step and leave the future in the hands of the Holy Trinity and Mother Mary.
      Thank you all for your prayers. You are my blessings.

      1. I forgot to give Ya a report on my Medicare “Wellness” Check a couple of weeks ago.
        The nurse asked me, along with a bunch of other questions, if I got De Jab and I said: No! … and I had no intention of ever getting it. She just smiled and nodded.
        Likewise the Doc had nothing to say either.
        I got the feeling that neither of them were De Jab Fans but had to be careful about what they said.

        The News, EVERYDAY, reinforces my belief that something VERY SINISTER is going on here and elsewhere.
        THEY are becoming very agitated that RESISTANCE is building, their goal of near 100% Compliance fading and evidence of malfeasance growing faster than THEY can Cover-It-Up.

    I picked up a used book at The Friends of the Library Store called “The Matarese Countdown” (1997) by Rbt. Ludlum. I’m sure I read the 1st Matarese book years ago… Anyway!…. The Matarese of Ludlum’s imagination, 25+ years ago, sound frighteningly similar to the evil Global “Elite” Great Reset Gang of today.

  19. Adding to CD’s and Phillip Frank’s posts: (https://rumble.com/vhp8e1-massive-world-renowned-doctor-blows-lid-off-of-covid-vaccine.html )
    from another expert:
    —Bridle concluded:
    “We made a big mistake; we didn’t realize it until now. We thought the spike protein was a great target antigen. We never knew the spike protein itself was a toxin and was a pathogenic protein. So, by vaccinating people, we are inadvertently inoculating them with a toxin. Some people, this gets into circulation, and when that happens, in some people, they can cause damage, especially to the cardiovascular system.”

    1. Thanks for posting this Sorrowful. There is so much “new” information coming out now and I’m sure there will be more as our brother and sisters who took the jab get sick.
      The big question: do we share this with those who have taken the jab? It’s like living with a timebomb inside you. The “high concentration found in ovaries” really caught my eye, since I believe that this jab was a way to control population from the start.

      1. As for me, I wouldn’t share it after the fact. Most likely, a wall would go up because of the fear evoked. Rather, I would share before when possible and be at the ready to advise one who has had it to turn to God seeking His Mercy and Healing.

      2. I agree with Beckita, SanSan. Been troubled by this as well. Beloved family members, including one daughter, have succumbed to the pressure. I am printing articles to educate my husband who is considering the inoculation. Sigh and cry…. Today, in frustration I asked myself, “what can we do to mitigate the possible side affects of this?” I’m sick and tired of the dread! Tell me something good!
        I broke down and cried…. at work….. after reading another article. I was then reminded that I was asking the wrong person-namely me-for relief. A voice whispered to my heart, “cut to the end of this article”. I did, and was a bit heartened. We can give them things to do….things not to do….and hope they listen.
        Dr. Mercola is my go to, and this is another article I printed out for my beloved husband and best friend to read. https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2021/05/30/covid-19-vaccines-causing-damage.aspx

  21. So many signs of roses throughout this post that St. Therese of Lisieux must be involved. Thank you all for sharing such wonderful insights. They ALL hearten my faith.
    As for the song, “The Rose,” as a young girl, I was asked to sing that as a solo at Mass after Communion and I received a lot of accolades. For so long, that memory had bothered me because I thought the movie was so profane that the song did not deserve to be a part of our beautiful liturgy. Charlie’s and all your reflections have allowed me to heal and be proud of that moment in my young life instead of ashamed.
    All your intentions are mine throughout the novena to the Sacred Heart, those you have mentioned and those that you hold close to your heart in silence. Peace be to all here.

        1. Thanks, Jen. I realize that many are following this alleged seer. I think of many things in discerning these alleged messages.

          I think of Desmond’s caution… paraphrasing now: When the Bishop of someone who publicly posts messages remains silent, that carries supreme weight compared to a Bishop from outside that alleged seer’s Diocese weighing in on authenticity. Why? Because the way the Church works is that it is the Bishop of a seer’s Diocese who has the sole authority and responsibility to set up an official investigation and make a decision concerning authenticity. We can all have opinions of discernment, including clerics. But the SOLE responsibility for a declaration belongs to the local ordinary.

          I also think of Daniel O’Connor’s wisdom in his newly released piece – filled with the marriage of faith and reason in its teachings and counsel. A major point of caution made is to treat no alleged or even an authentic seer as an oracle.

          It’s essential to pray for the conversion of souls. My Goodness! I’d wager the majority of those who are in our community have prayed for this intention for years and years now. We had a global event of praying for souls a mere few weeks ago when we celebrated Divine Mercy Sunday. Even if ALL of Luz’s messages are not authentic, this is a good initiative to pray in a concerted way for conversion of souls. I wonder however it will be accomplished on a global scale? (BTW, Daniel also pointed out that the idea of blessing grapes on which to survive if a famine emerges – which is also in Luz’s alleged messages – originally comes from a condemned series of messages.) But it is also wisdom to keep in mind these cautions which have been expressed in this community, along with the more than 80 pieces which Charlie wrote back at TNRS concerning interpreting prophetic utterances.

          Ever united in prayer with those praying for conversion. For those who may have missed Daniel’s latest: https://dsdoconnor.com/

          2. I agree with everything Daniel O’Connor said about “seers”. I have prayerful discernment over everything I read. But when I saw “Global Prayer for Conversions on June 15th” – what’s not to love about that? I shared it with friends and they share it with friends – it was a statement with no link to where it came from. You opened that envelope Beckita.
            We may not get “global”, but so what – more people in prayer – that’s a good thing. My goodness, must everything be so “grave” and “dangerous”.


            1. Of course prayer is always good, San San. No quibbles there. 🙂 But for those weak in understanding prophecy, the thinking can go that since the call for prayer is good, all of this messenger bearer’s words are good. As Daniel noted: Blessed Grapes” are from a strongly condemned apparition(San Damiano), a condemnation which remains in force(it is a full-blown “constat de non,” not a mere “non constat”), and promoting this apparition’s messages is an act of disobedience.”

              And: ” Fixation upon food purity and medicine purity can be a serious distraction and a trap, and you do not at all need to start an organic farm, or have a pantry stocked full of medicinal plants or essential oils, to be ready for the Chastisements. Although Luz has received Imprimaturs, Imprimaturs only assert that the text they apply to is free of heresy (I am not accusing her of any); not that it is of supernatural origin or that it has no errors of other sorts. Mystical phenomena must be carefully scrutinized by the Church; and even when valid, do not themselves indicate that 100% of a seer’s messages are 100% supernatural.”

              So Daniel’s opening and closing line is a serious concern, just as it has been here and at TNRS. And it’s why I shared the link again.
