A real honest-to-goodness ghost has been helping thousands of undocumented Mexicans cross over to this country for the past thirty years! In many cases, this ghost actually transports the aliens across the border personally in a pickup truck, giving them money, food, water, and even telling them where they can find work.
Are you tempted to recommend that I be fitted with a strait-jacket and sent on vacation to the closest looney bin?
Somebody does need that strait-jacket and looney bin vacation. But not I - hopefully. The folks needing head-shrinkers are those "Can't-Fool-Smart, Scientific Americans" failing to recognize that I'm stating a simple fact as true as the rising and setting of the sun! Finish this article before sending the men in the white coats after me. I will be vindicated.
This ghost has an important agenda that may end all world conflicts based on religious squabbles and differences. He wants the whole world to know who he is and what he has in mind. All the help he gives to illegals is conditional. He gives his beneficiaries his name and "address" in Mexico, requesting that they show their sincere appreciation by visiting him during future visits to the homeland. He has been bombarded by grateful visitors ever since he became a pollero, more than thirty years ago.
Anyone reading this article: scientist, skeptic, atheist, mystic, or whatever, can easily corroborate everything I say here. There are many universally accepted scientific theories less consistently provable than the reality of the Santo Pollero (Holy Illegal Alien Smuggler), as the Mexicans call him.
The Santo Pollero may soon change all our previous concepts of religion and the true nature of mankind.
National security is another great reason for us to take the Santo Pollero seriously. America has some politically active enemies in Mexico, who are convincing that country's highly religious masses that "God" favors them over the United States, giving these hordes a steel-hard resolve to keep pouring over the border in ever-increasing numbers.
The saga of the Santo Pollero begins with the Mexican government's persecution of clerics and religious people after the Revolution of 1910-1920. After that Revolution, another war started in Mexico, the so-called Cristero War (1926-1929), in which the government closed churches, forbade the people to worship, and killed priests caught giving mass. This is one of the saddest times in Mexican history -- one that the Mexican government would prefer that foreigners like you and me not know about. About 4:00 A. M., February 25, 1928, Some Mexican soldiers, accompanied by Marxist agrarian reformistas, killed Father Toribio as he lay sleeping in home of a man named Leon Aguirre in Tequila, Jalisco. The soldiers and reformistas did not know that their evil deed was left incomplete. They had just killed his body, but not the rest of him. But how could they have known that? Not even today do most people know that a physical body is just one-half of a person!
About 1970, strange things started happening at the border dividing the United States and Mexico. Hundreds of Illegal aliens began reporting that whenever they found themselves in trouble, a strange Mexican priest named Toribio Romo would suddenly appear and help them cross the border, even giving them food, water, money and information on how to get jobs in the United States. Sometimes, he came upon illegals suffering from heat exhaustion, snake bite, and other infirmities. He healed them as well. The immigrants thought he was a real life human being; not a guardian angel.
I will quote from a one hundred percent true tale that appeared in the June, 2002 edition of the popular and high-quality Mexican magazine, Contenido:
The Zacatecan Jesús Buendía Gaytán, a 45 years old peasant, states that two decades ago he decided to go to California illegally to seek employment on some farm. In Mexicali, he put himself in contact with a "Pollero" (smuggler of humans) but, upon crossing the border, the border patrol discovered them; in order to escape, Jesús fled to the open desert. |
After walking several days over desolate paths and more dead than alive from heat and thirst, he saw a pickup truck coming toward him. A youthful appearing, thin individual, with white skin and blue eyes, got out of the vehicle; in perfect Spanish he offered him water and food. He told him not to worry because he would tell him where farm workers were getting employment. He also gave him a few dollars for any extra expenses he might incur along the way.
Just before this Good Samaritan took leave of him, he said, "When you finally get a job and money, look for me in Jalostitlán, Jalisco; Ask for the whereabouts of Toribio Romo."
After working for a season in California, Jesús returned to Mexico, determined to visit Toribio. In Jalostitlán, he was told to go to the village of Santa Ana, about 10 kilometers down the road. As Jesús said, "There they told me that he was in the village church. I almost had a heart attack when I entered the church and saw the photograph of my friend hanging above the main altar. It was, indeed, Toribio Romo, who was killed during the Cristero wars."
(Article written by Marco A. García Gutiérrez.)
Well-known Mexican writer Veronica Maza Bustamente wrote the following in her excellent article, Santos Polleros (Holy Smugglers of Undocumented Aliens) for the Catholic oriented online news magazine, Milenio Semanal.com (Weekly Millennium.com).
Located about two hours from Guadalajara and near the town of Jalostotitlan, the village (of Santa Ana) consists of a few houses, fertile land for planting, and the temple where the martyr is venerated. |
Saturday is the most popular visiting day of the faithfulùIn the makeshift parking lot (by the temple) one sees autos with United States licenses, but with Mexican owners. In one of them Otilio (Othello) has traveled here, a brown-skinned young man wearing cowboy boots and a Texan hat. He comes from Nevada in order to see the saint, who just little more than a year ago, helped him cross the border.
"A friend and I left Jalostotitlan with the intention of working in the United States, but when we were close to the border, we were assaulted and beaten up. They (the robbers) took all our money, and we were disheartened. We didn't have any money left to pay the "pollero;" not even enough to pay for our passage back home. Suddenly, an auto stopped beside us, and a priest invited us to get in. We told him about what had happened to us, and he told us not to worry. He would help us cross the border. And he did. As we were getting out of his car, he gave us some money and told us to look for work in a nearby factory. We would get hired there."
Otilio's voice still quivers with emotion upon telling how overcome with gratitude they were. They asked the priest to give them his address in order to repay the money he lent them, with their first paychecks.
"He said to us, "You are from the state of Jalisco; right? When you have earned sufficient money, go to Santa Ana and ask for Toribio Romo. That's my name.'
With the money he lent us, we paid for our lodging and did, in fact, get work in the place he recommended to us. Several months afterwards, we went to Santa Ana. When we entered the church and saw the picture above the altar, right away we recognized him as the priest who had helped us. Upon inquiring about him, we were told (by the priest in charge) that he had died about 70 years ago. We then broke out in tears and gave our testimony..Since then, we visit the temple of our protector at least once a year."
The above two accounts are typical of the hundreds of testimonies that grateful pilgrims to the temple tell about Toribio Romo's kindness to many Mexican peasants finding themselves in some kind of dire need upon crossing over to the United States.
My wife and I have had contact with guardian angels several times in our life together. On one occasion, our car broke down on a stretch of lonely highway a few miles from Acaponeta, Nayarit, in Central Western Mexico. We suffered approximately 24 hours without water and were nearly eaten alive by mosquitos. Finally, a strange man in a pickup stopped to help us. He said that he had learned about us in a dream. He helped us get a tow truck to take the car to Acaponeta where we hired a truck to take the car -- and us -- to the Plymouth agency in Mazatlan, Sinaloa. Before leaving Acaponeta, I asked him who he was. He said that he was Justino de Dios (Justinian of God) and was from El Rancho del Sol (The Farm of the Sun). It just so happens that there was a saint named Justinian of God, a non-Jew convert and one of the first founding fathers of the Catholic Church. Upon later investigation, my wife and I found out that no one in that area of Mexico had ever heard of a Farm of the Sun, much less a real flesh and blood Justinian of God.
Here's the difference between my accounts of personal experiences with guardian angels and those told about Toribio Romo. I have absolutely no proof of any kind to corroborate my stories. In no way can I substantiate them. Could I be lying? Do I want to deceive you? Only my wife and I know what truths or lies hide between my two ears. On the other hand, Toribio Romo did not die nearly two thousand years ago, as Justinian of God did. He died in the twentieth century, just about 73 years ago. Thousands of grateful Mexican peasants can provide accurate written testimony that this guardian angel really helped them. All a person has to do is talk to them personally during their pilgrimages to the church built in his honor in Santa Ana, Jalisco, near the larger town of Jalostotitlan. Many members of his extended family live in the United States. They are spread out from San Diego as far as Chicago, Illinois. The Catholic Church has even canonized him. The truth about Father Toribio is entirely reliable -∞Vand easily proven!
Mexicans take reverence to Toribio Romo seriously.
This church readies a celebration.
Perhaps some readers may not accept the testimonies of many thousands of exceedingly religious Mexican peasants who would die rather then lie about Toribio Romo. That is a shame because most people in Mexico know for sure that this guardian priest is a reality.
Toribio is only one of several Mexican saints helping Mexicans both at the border and within this country. You may be wanting to ask about now, "Why do we hear only about Mexican guardian angels?"
Most people don't know -- or want to believe -- that guardian angels are everywhere on earth. They were helping some people during the Twin Towers Disaster. They were helping a few Afghans during the savage reign of the Taliban. They were helping certain of our soldiers during World War II and the Korean conflict. Some were even helping Jews in Hitler's World War II concentration camps. Guardian Angels are in every country on earth and serve people of all religions. The reason why we know about Toribio Romo is because of the abundance of valid and easily verifiable evidence which he, a learned man in his lifetime, is providing to the whole world. He wants us to know that we're all immortal!
In her excellent article about Toribio Romo, Veronica Maza Bustamente appears to think that Father Toribio, and other saints like him, are dedicated only to helping illegals cross over to the United States:
"The new Mexican saints are giving a different "twist" to the phrase, "crossing the border." They are no longer trying to help True Believers on the brink of death, but instead they are literally helping illegals cross the border into the United States. Times have changed, and even saintliness must adapt.
When Pope John Paul II canonized the 25 martyrs of the Cristero War and the first Mexican Catholic nun, few people at the time knew that these saints were destined to become the consolation of those countrymen crossing the border into the United States. Not only are they their consolation, but they have also become people smugglers themselves, helping emigrants "cross the border."
How does a spirit like Father Toribio get his hands on cars, money, employment information, the movements of border guards, and the like? Don't ask me. I'd like to know myself.
Just as many American skeptics will refuse to accept the truth about Toribio Romo, Veronica Bustamente and millions of other Mexicans either feign or demonstrate ignorance that Guardian Angels help no one in particular. Romo would willingly help Americans, Arabs, Chinese, Africans, and anyone else in trouble in the Arizona Desert -- and has probably already done it. We only notice the Mexicans being helped because there are more of them crossing over to this country illegally than non-Mexicans or non-Latinos -- and because Toribio Romo has made it possible for us to know about the reality of Guardian Angels.
The close relationship between mortal men and Guardian Angels is what I call "Super-Religion," the religion of Nature in which all humans, without exception, are born! All major religions on earth have sprouted from "Super-Religion." I don't care whether it is Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Shintoism, Taoism, Sikhism, Jainism, American Indian religion, or whatever, this Guardian Angel phenomenon is the essence of all of them. All of Mankind's deities, by whatever name, sprouted from the Guardian Angel phenomenon.
"Super-Religion," or the prototypical Judaism and Hinduism, was originally personified by the ancient Hindu deities, Shiva and Kubera. Shiva represented the Physical Universe. Kubera represented all the riches and fortune which man can extract from this Physical Universe. Many Hindu authorities claim that Shiva and Kubera were one and the same individual. Christians and Jews know Shiva as Yah, Yahve, Jehovah, Zeus or Jupiter. Kubera is none other than our biblical "Heber." According to Kubera, Khyber (Kheeber) or Heber, if exceptionally rich, intelligent, powerful people remained virtuous and humanitarian throughout life, doing all in their power to make ordinary humans happy and contented, after physical death they would attain the power to return to this world at will and help anyone in need. These exalted beings became Yakshas, Yaksas, Yakhus, Yahus, and similar names. In modern Judaism, they are called "Yehudis" or Jews. However, if they failed to be benefactors of all mankind, they would return to this world as Guh-Yakhas or "Yakha Ordure." In modern Hebrew, this word has become "Goy" or "Gentile."
According to Orthodox Jews, a rich or intellectually superior Jew is known as a Yaksan, possessing Yeekhoos. His superior qualities are then passed on genetically from father to children. For this reason, the Yaksan are favoured members of Judaism. Orthodox Jews prefer to marry their daughters to Yaksan, if possible.
We who write about controversial subjects are often subjected to barrages of insults from skeptics and others hostile to our writings. All I can say is this: Before broadsiding me with insults or deciding that I'm writing lies, why don't you get off your duff and investigate the mystery of Toribio Romo for yourself? He has made it easy for all of us! I have absolutely no doubt about the outcome of your investigations.
