My Dear Faithful,

Because of the circumstances of the current chastisement all Masses and activities at Our Lady Help of Christians chapel are suspended as of today.  Please remember that although the situation makes it impossible for you to attend Mass and that you are relieved of this obligation for the present we all still have the obligation to keep holy the Sabbath day. This we do by prayer, spiritual Communion, and spiritual reading, as well as activities proper to the Lord’s Day. I have included a link to a website with many, many good Catholic books that can be read online for free.


Furthermore please bear in mind that while we cannot have Masses at the chapel at the present we still have bills to pay. If the situation does not change before Easter, the faithful are asked to please continue to support the parish in this time of crisis by mailing their contributions to the address found at the end of this announcement. As always you are in my prayers and private Masses. Let us all do prayers and penance together to beg God to remove the scourge from us so that we may resume parish life as normal.

God Bless You! Mary Keep You!

How to Prepare Miraculous Sustaining Grapes for the Latter Times


Miraculous Sustaining Grapes for the Latter Times were given by Our Lady to Mama Rosa Quantrini, in San Damiano, Italy. These Blessed Grapes will sustain the people of Faith during the time of the Antichrist, wars, famine, droughts, calamities, plagues, and illness. One should have some in storage. One grape per person a day and a supply for up to 6 months or more. Approximately 180 grapes per person. One grape will sustain you for a whole day.

The reason for the 6 month supply, during the Antichrist’s reign there will be no food available to people unless they have the bar code tattooed or a microchip embedded under the skin, which is absolutely forbidden by God Almighty in peril of your soul. The Antichrist will reign for 3 1/2 years. The last 1/2 year (6 months) will be the most terrifying and tormenting for True Catholics who do not follow the Antichrist. We must go underground, hiding and without food, remember better to starve and save our souls gaining Eternal Happiness, than to gorge the moment and loose Eternal Life. Pray to The Holy Ghost for Fortitude, Patience, Temperance, Faith, Hope and Charity.

Remember that even the brandy used to preserve these grapes has medicinal value. If you are ill one teaspoon with Faith will Heal.

1. CHRISTIAN BROTHERS OR B & W BRANDY MUST BE BLESSED BY A TRADITIONAL PRIEST BEFORE STARTING! NOTE: Wine brandy is used as a preservative. Do not use a fruit or berry brand, it won’t preserve the grapes, it will cause them to ferment!

2. Purchase fresh grapes. (can be any variety; red, green, black, with or without seeds.)

3. With scissors, cut grapes from the cluster, leaving a little stem. NOTE: if grape has no stem, you can still use them. (Easier to cut first, then wash them.)

4. Wash cut grapes in a big container (A), with a drop of Ivory dish soap and water. Swish around, then rinse grapes and place in another container (B).

5. Take each grape from container (B), and individually bless them with the blessed grape. You rub the already blessed grape to the unblessed grape making a sign of the cross to each unblessed grape. Saying “In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, Amen.” Each grape must be blessed this way.

6. Place the newly blessed grape in a new container (C), keep separate as not to confuse from the unblessed grapes.

7. Take grapes from container (C), and place in jars, counting them as they are placed into the jar. When the jars are full, with a marker put the number of grapes that are in the jar and date on lid.

8. When all the jars are full of grapes, pour the blessed Christian Brothers Brandy or B & W Brandy, into each jar of grapes and fill to top, then cap your jars.

9. If the blessed grape becomes mushy while blessing unblessed grapes, eat it, do not throw it away. You can continue blessing the rest of the grapes with a newly blessed grape from container (C). The blessing has been transferred. You may give the newly blessed grape to others so that they may make a supply for themselves and others. The blessings are transferred from one of the original grapes from San Damiano. Our Blessed Mother said that a native fruit in the mission fields may be used. These grapes are NEVER to be sold. A contribution is acceptable to help pay the cost of the little container, the package and the postage. Pray and ask your Guardian Angel and favorite Saints to help. THEY DO AND WILL!

NOTE: You can not fill containers with the grapes and brandy and then bless the entire container by the touch of one grape with the sign of the cross. You can not bless yourselves with each of the grapes. You can not purchase pickled grapes and then bless the container with a blessed grape. To give you an estimate of time involved: 4 people, 30 pounds of grapes, started at 10:00 AM, finished approximately. 1:00 PM, this included the extending of Holy Oils and Holy Waters, which was done at the end.

  1. I can’t beleive that I’m the first one to may any comments on this article.

    My sister had Fr. Perez bless a dozen grapes and several bottles of brandy.

    I’m in Oregon and plan to have Fr. Burfitt, at St. Thomas Becket, bless a my grapes and brandy.

    Most people will see grapes in brandy in mason jars. Some will see blessed grapes in blessed brandy in the jars. But what really is in the mason jar …. is …. FAITH.

    These are tumultuous times.

  2. How will I know if we have a traditional priest? We have never discussed any of this with our priest.

    Comment by Kim Travis on September 7, 2015 at 8:13 pm

  3. Where do you live? I may be able to direct you to a traditional priest. We have three at our chapel in Garden Grove, Calif.

    Comment by dean on September 8, 2015 at 1:11 am

  4. please help. I think I have missed the most important part. How does the first grape get blessed? What is a traditional priest? I’m in central Arkansas.

    Comment by Jessica on September 22, 2015 at 8:17 pm

  5. Blessed grapes are available at A traditional priest offers the traditional Tridentine Mass in Latin guaranteed by Quo Primum. In what city do you reside?

    Comment by dean on September 23, 2015 at 2:01 am

  6. How do you get it blessed if your allergic to wheat that’s in the brandy

    Comment by Pat on September 27, 2015 at 7:06 pm

  7. The blessing process does not require touching or consuming brandy. Can you wash off the brandy before consuming? FYI: I use to be allergic to wheat and 94% of everything the allergist tests for. By reducing my protein consumption, I eliminated all my allergies. – Dean

  10. Hello! I live in New York. Can you advice me as to how to go about asking a traditional priest in New York to bless the brandy for me? I am afraid to be turned down for the blessing of the brandy. Thank you. God bless you.

    Comment by Areline Pinero on March 7, 2016 at 8:11 am

  11. When I was in your position, I just asked the traditional priest to please bless the brandy for the miraculous sustaining grapes. He agreed and while I held the brandy I felt his blessing transform the brandy.

    Comment by dean on March 11, 2016 at 4:09 pm

  12. Do you know of any Traditional priests in Dayton, West Chester,or Cincinnati,Ohio for this Blessing

    Comment by Kim on July 10, 2016 at 12:57 pm

  13. Try St. Gertrude the Great Church, 4900 Rialto Rd., Westchester, OH. 513-645-4212. Soon the gift shop at Our Lady Help of Christian Roman Catholic Chapel in Garden Grove, CA will ship bottles of blessed Christian Brothers Brandy for a donation.

    Comment by dean on July 13, 2016 at 10:19 am

  14. Hi Dean:

    Would you help clarify my understanding? Monsignor Perez blessed my Christian Bros. Brandy and some grapes from local grocer.

    If I am not mistaken, I must also have at least one of the San Damiano grapes with which to bless the others, one by one. So, this is where I need your clarification:

    (True or False?) To fulfill the formula for confecting the miraculous character of the grapes, the Catholic must obtain no less than one special San Damiano, Italy grape.

    Thanks in advance for clarifying.

    Comment by Gladstone on September 6, 2016 at 1:22 pm

  15. According to the Specific formula from the Trumpeter, the first blessing must be done with a grape blessed from San Damiano.

    Comment by dean on December 1, 2016 at 6:23 pm

  16. Hello,
    How do I get San Damiano grapes and a traditional priest, I’m in Southern NJ? Also, how long will the grapes last once in the blessed brandy? It is upsetting that this preparation is not really talked about, it seems we have to dig for the information. I wish churches would hold seminars on this preparation. This is a lot to process. God Bless, and thank you in advance for any and all input.

  20. Hello from Lima, Peru! I just spoke with a friend in Virginia, USA, who told me about the blessed grapes. I would like to prepare some here for devout Catholic ladies before returning to the US at the end of the month (April, 2017). Is there anywhere in Lima, Peru where we can find the “mother” blessed grape? And the necessary brandy. (I’ll look for a Traditonal priest via the web.) Thank you & FIAT!

    Comment by Sandra Vera on April 8, 2017 at 2:38 pm

  21. I do not know of a store I Lima that sells the blessed grapes. I obtain them at I use Christian Brothers Brandy.

  26. My husband just asked me if my cousin still had Blessed Grapes from when we were teenagers. We’re nearly 60 years old now. I was so happy to find this article. Back then, it was just word of mouth. I’m going to make some Blessed Grapes for my house. Thank you!
