  1. Does anyone have any idea why she keeps crying? Anyone hear of the Chastisement? She cried in Sri Lanka right before the CC was bombed. She was crying just recently in Canada. She was crying in many places this year alone. I believe as far as I can see this is the 7th time already this year. AS far as I found and heard about. The media usually pushes this sort of thing under the rug. They want to keep people stupid and in sin. But GOD will not be mocked. And no one has listened to her please for over 500 years now. Not even at Fatima or Akita. But it is coming soon. By the way these sort of things are tested. And none were found to be a hoax. Oh! Well, times is running out now.
