Ned Dougherty, a Catholic famous for a near-death experience during which he was given prophecies (including one that foretold the September 11 2001 terrorist attacks in Washington and New York), has issued a stark warning for the coming period of military action in Iraq and the Middle East, as well as other areas. It is being submitted for your discernment. Like any other such prediction, it should be considered and then prayed about, not become a centre of any obsession. With prayer — and Jesus Christ — there is always more light and hope than darkness.
