It is with great joy that I can tell you that one of the forgotten Dr. Bella Dodd lectures has been discovered, digitized and made available on the Internet.
Lecture of Dr. Bella Dodd
September 1, 1961
I strongly encourage everyone to listen to it. Her message is very timely in our day.
This talk was procured by Dr. Mary Nicholas of Maine who has been researching Bella Dodd for several years now. She has permitted the use of this audio recording on my YouTube channel.
Dr. Nicholas also recently gave an interview (her first ever, in fact) with Patrick Coffin and gave him a recording of another forgotten Dodd lecture from May 14, 1962 in Omaha, Nebraska.
Go check them out!
I am presently working on an essay about the Detroit lecture. More as it develops!
A friend was kind to send to me a recent post entitled “The Greatest Sign of the Times” from Mark Mallett’s personal web site. In this response, Mallett makes a tongue-in-cheek remark about the recent criticism of Fr. Michel Rodrigue:
When I returned to my desk this week, I was faced with numerous controversies and attacks on this ministry and Countdown to the Kingdom and the seers there. It seems, in part, that some bishops and laity feel that any prophecies that speak of purification, chastisement or divine correction are false, simply because they are fearful. If so, then we ought to disavow Jesus Christ for the “doom and gloom” of Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21, the Book of Revelation, and so on.
He then goes on to lament a lack of catechesis about prophecy.
This morning, I discovered that Countdown to the Kingdom (CTTK) has responded to the letter of Bishop Bourgon of Hearst-Moosonee.
The letter speaks for itself (French/English):
Countdown to the Kingdom (CTTK) has responded to the news concerning the Bishop of Amos, Québec’s recent letter on Fr. Michel Rodrigue.
