Are we mere animals or even less? Dogs can learn to care and develop but our leaders have told us the same lies for too long. Why do we wag our tails at the same old tales?

Joseph Campbell, [B]The Hero With A Thousand Faces[/B]:

[COLOR="#800080"]"Whether small or great, and no matter what the stage or grade of life, the Call rings up the curtain, always, on a mystery of transfiguration -- a rite, or moment, of spiritual passage, which, when complete, amounts to a dying and a birth. The familiar life horizon has been outgrown; the old concepts, ideals, and emotional patterns no longer fit; the time for the passing of a threshold is at hand."[/COLOR]

Angel of lightness, thanks for informing us of the holy year of the Catholic church.

It is understandable the ire of the posters that your traditional catholic point of view would bring. I guess you are not surprised. I myself would have pointed your attention to a couple of things if others didn't do it already.

Still, we are looking towards the future, not to the past.

How do you comment the light show infront of St Peter's basilica in protection of the endangered planet?


The Catholic church has a chance to make the transition to the world of 21st century. We are waiting that since Year 2000. Or will she? The answer should be visible to the wider public, not only to closed circles of clerics and fundamentals that do not represent the 1 bln common catholics, much less the rest of the planet. Representing God to the rest of us? All those closed people for any new action of God? Some of them yes, may be, but they have to show it more clearly. They have to answer the demand of the times.

The answer should be manifested as clearly as that first of its kind light show. It showed for a first time (that I know of) that the Catholic church puts the interests of the planet and the wider humanity before its own interests. Of course one can trace back that process to recent documents issued by pope Francis (Laudato si) or even to St JP2. Not documents and words are missing in the Catholic church. More real change is needed, and much sooner. The people are tired of waiting.

If it is meant to be the church of the 21st century of the "humanity after"...whatever it means that "after."

One word of Mary, that may be developed into a new doctrine by the next pope (if there is a such)...

Probably Jesus wouldn't mind to honoring His holy Mother...How about His wife? Isn't it the cult of Mary introduced in the early church in part to substitute any reference to Mary Magdalene as wife of Jesus? How many more newly discovered ancient Gospels are needed to surface in the public space, in order to be admitted, that Jesus 33 a normal man could not possibly walk around without wife? Yes doctrine lacks that, because it is pretty much the opposite. But it is not a dogma. The absence of wife of Jesus is not a dogma. A pope could possiby make a dogma that Jesus had wife. Jesus could have had sons and daughters as well. And they could come one day, too.

The Vatican will most lightly be responsible for any new world war that happens to take place via the many fingers they have in many different pies.

The monies and financial resources they have at there disposal could end world poverty in a decade should they choose to release them for that purpose and they would still have a significant portion left over.

They dont want to save us from world war 3 considering the implications of there self fulfilling end of days prophecy aka revelations.

All this promise of hope but if you see reality things are just getting worse

Seriously do you think that the Pope saying we have a year of peace means anything to anyone but a few Catholics.


Reminds me of this scripture
New International Version
While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

This is the time we pray that Jesus returns and brings justice


Or maybe if people got rid of their superstitious, outdated beliefs, then that would be a MAJOR step on the road to turning things around for the better. As long as people remain divided over primitive tribal religions we will never be able to unite and take on those who created and maintain them to keep us under control, so they can satisfy their greed and lust for power and ultimate control.

People are not even required to get rid of there beliefs, simply keeping them to themselves would suffice.

In the end all the major organised religious practices are derived from Sun worship anyway, same crap quasi different aroma, but they all want our monies.

HUGE MISTAKE there.

paradoxically, the situation is quite opposite from inside out. A small but zealous core of fanatics, both within the clergy and within the fundamental faithful, tries everything possible to torpedo the reforms of pope Francis. He doesn't want to excommunicate them, because after all they are devote catholics. They should stop sabotage the reform ASAP. Aren't they the same people who defended the dogma of the papal infallibility at every occasion not so long ago? Now some of them almost say that pope Francis is the antichrist. That is de facto a coup inside the Catholic church. They should stop immediately their subversive actions and start obey what their pope says. They are minority but very vocal and some of them still hold key positions.

Whether Francis' reform succeeds, may well mean whether the Roman Catholic church continues in 21st century. Or we wil have another Catholic church in 21st century not necessarily the same in structure and canons. (that were never established in that way by Jesus).

Enough of waiting and promises! Now is the time of action!

I support the efforts of pope and cardinals to bring the urgent question of Global warming on the scene with convincing new methods, such as the light show, in addition to the more sophisticated papal speeches in the US, UN and the encyclical Laudato si. It is the only winning way for the Roman Catholic church to continue in 21st century reality.

A reality that certainly will have to deal with things like extraterrestrials, like prolonging human life to Biblical times, after deciding the acute problems of the day - of malnutrition and social inequality even amid the Western developed societies.

As far as the moral teaching goes, let remember IT IS NOT A DOGMA and the Eastern Churches have a different number of marriages allowed and priests-married. Flexibility is needed, not dogmatism for things that Jesus never made dogmas. Let they discuss Jesus' own state of life in details, from all possible aspects.

The disciple cannot be higher than the Teacher. Not even the apostle is higher than the teacher. Jesus is and will be our only rock and head of the invisible Church, our only master and teacher. And God our only Father. So said the words of Jesus Christ, recorded in the acknowledged Gospels. Why don't they just follow them?

Hundreds or thousands of Star Wars fans hold mass lightsaber battle in LA

This is the reality the Catholic (and other) churches may face. The young generation are motivated by other means, including by smartphones and heroes of popular sagas and even games, the first of which is of course Star Wars. The Catholic Church is not at the level to respond to that challenge of the times, to offer explanation or even better - to give more information of what she really knows of extraterrestrials etc.

She drags feet instead, waiting a miracle to happen somehow. It was the consecration of Russia for decades. Now it is not actual anymore. The Catholic church must understand it still can lose and lose big. Jesus Christ promised his church not to fail. He never promised the STRUCTURE OF TODAY'S CHURCH will remain forever. He never ever created such structures. Devote fundamental catholics will certainly disagree. But that is the historic truth. Even without additional Gospels. He told Peter what He told Peter, and those few words did not include what we see today as over-expanded apparatus that is doing everything except what it is meant to do for our times.

Let we see the Catholic Church hierarchic on the frontlines to defend humanity from Climate changes and other impending dangers, that we don't even know about. Not the least the social and hunger inequality, that endangers the core of the Western developed nations, known once as the Christendom.

The example of the sole warrior the pope is good but it will be unsuccessful if it remains alone.

Or is it only winning time?

Winning time? We lose precious time and those young generations will never forgive that lost! Because the survivors are among them, the new humanity is among them right now. Even if we all die tomorrow in WW3 without underground shelters, or if we all refuse ET shelters as well.
"Therefore your sons will be your judges" said Jesus to the unbelieving Jews who otherwise pretended to be very "devote to God".

It is strange after so many manifestations of pope Francis, how there isn't a wide flood of words in every homily of every bishop to tel the truth to the common people, who are not supposed to know it. From baptizing aliens, to global warming, to social inequality. Inconvenient for the Sunday checks? Then it is better the Catholic church to fire a number of clergy and to continue with the rest of devote ones. And to recruit new fresh minds, not necessarily with 7 year theology background, who know what is the truth and whom to obey. Jesus didn't ask Peter to graduate from the Jerusalem Temple school, before appointing him de facto the first pope. None of the apostles were religious educated at the time of the call of Jesus.

If ET give us tomorrow 33 year record of video of the entire life of Jesus, we will see how many things are just different. Now we can only guess about it.

Why follow a book that claims to contain the word of God when it is clearly written by Man with all his fears and fallibility at play? Suppose it's obviously for some that like or are conditioned to follow the control constructs contained within said book. Personally I imagine God would have higher hopes for humanity than worship and servitude at his bequest. After all apparently we are created in his image hence our potential is rather limitless.

Then there is the issue of freewill versus predestination, both ideologies being in direct contradiction to one another.

The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,

I am going to close this day in vespers of Nativity just commenting something that is pretty obvious. There are things in life that we can play with, or speculate about, and there others in which there is no space for such attitude.

An insult of the magnitude you have launched to the Holy Mother of Jesus, St Mary, is so low, so miserable and sinful that scares me so much, because reach the level of what in teology is called Blasphemy.

This reminds me that at the mid 1990s a very scandalous Art work was hanged in one of the walls of an extremely reputed Art Museum in New York, it was an icon of the Virgin Mary, but made with Elephant excrement.

www.mtholyoke.edu...

About a year after such an abomination was committed, with the complete tolerance of the curator and other functionaries of the Brooklyn Art Museum, The President of the US , Mr Bill Clinton faced impeachment due to a case of adultery that became the worst political scandal after Watergate, just 4 years after it America suffered a terrible electoral crisis in a nightmare of the Presidential election of 2000 and 5 years after New York City and Washington DC suffered the worst Terrorist attack ever occurred in American soil, that is also still the worst external agression ever carried out successfully against America in all its History.


Please at least in this Christmas think carefully what are you saying and don't bring to us a curse that if you want for yourself we don't want for ourselves, so if you have more of this terrible extreme offensive comments against religion to make keep them for your privacy.

Why I post this? well if you are short of spiritual intelligence just think what would you feel if somebody says to you that your mother is backing or approving sexual perversion against children or any other perverse behavior?

Well, that is nothing in comparison to what Jesus Christ can feel when somebody opens his dirty mouth to launch an insult like the one you have posted here against his.


Again, if you are Happy to share a nice Christmas dinner in Hell with Chris Ofili keep that for yourself, we are not interested here in to take part on it too.

Thanks,

Happy Holidays,

Merry Christmas,

The Angel of Lightness

What if they do know all about it, but do nothing to stop it, and the church of Rome covers it up, and moves the kiddy fiddling priests around so they can spread their sick behaviour around!

Looks like someone here is worshipping a false idol!

Here the topic is clearly the Mercy that is inspired in the Christian tradition and the interesting aspect that the Holy Year was inaugurated in a major festivity of the Holy Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. I must insist as who opened the thread that your post, among others, are clearly off topic.

If there is somebody in History that has warned us in different apparitions Like for Instance in Garabandal, 1961 North of Spain, or in Conyers, Georgia early 1990s, that the Chruch was going to experience a series of situations that would compromise so seriously ethics of some of its members, in particular the ones in position of Authority, is precisely St Mary.

If you want to investigate more on this just check what is called the great apostasy, that is one of the most intriguing prophecies of the modern Marian apparitions, it was foresaw by saints and also predicted in Fatima but underestimated.

fatima.ageofmary.com...

marienfried.com...

Notice that I have also mentioned Conyers and Garabandal that are apparitions that still remain not officially officially accepted by the Church, but that certainly moved hundreds of thousands, perhaps milions, of Catholic devotes for the many wonders that there were seen and witnessed.

St Mary is not an idol, it is a very real person, her Historicity is absolutely out of question, there are a lot of confirmed historic accounts of her life, She is the mother of the most fundamental figure of the Western civilization.

The kind of corruption you and other members insist to introduce in discussion on this thread, although it is clearly off topic, since it is not exclusive of one particular denomination, it is right now present in many different churches or religions, it is signal of the moral crisis of our time, boosted by the action of terrible forces that are spreading perversions around the world, like the ones are promoting pornography in the web.

The devotion to St Mary is not an exclusive patrimony of Catholicism, it is also part of the Christian beliefs in the Eastern Orthodox tradition, in the Oriental Christian Churches and in the Anglican or Episcopalian ones.

Please pay attention to the warning i gave, it is not intelligent to play with certain things, blasphemy against Holyness is the most straightforward path to terrible devastation and disasters.

The only corruption that you and anybody must be afraid of is the one that comes from the heart, when instead to feel love, mercy, comprehension for others, instead to respect the way others try to approach and make peace with God, thoughts that are of hatred, division and separation among the humanity emerge.

The Holy Year of Mercy is a very good intendend opportunity of reflection in our attitudes for others, an invitation to all humanity into think that we can be diverse but that does not mean that we must be enemies due to our differences, it is not important because the Pope has convoked it, it is important because it is inspired in the Christian concept of Charity.

St Mary is the St Patroness of the Mercy, she felt mercy for others even before his son started to practise publically it, an incontrovertible proof of this is her tender attitude in the Canaan wedding, the very first miracle that Jesus granted in the canoncial gospels, even before his public ministry began.


St. John 2 ,
1 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there,

2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

4 “Woman,[a] why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”

5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”


6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.

8 Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”

They did so,

9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside

10 and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”

11 What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.


Please open your hearts to the virtue of Love and cease with the campaign of hatred and comfrontation among Christians, and among all the sons of Abraham, that Satan is smartly putting in trhe minds of men to boost the terrible international war we have seen in this 2015.

Thanks,

Happy Holidays,

Merry Christmas,

So the corruption from the church of Rome against children, the corruption of covering up and moving pedophile priests comes from whose heart exactly? The popes? As he has done nothing about the corruption except appointng corrupt people like George Pell to positions of authority!

Actually the formula is the TWO Mary’s: One represents the trodden path to success, The Magdalene, and the other the original purity of the GOE, before the Fall--Mary the Virgin.

I believe we have to seek our own inner Jesus Christ and the Two Mary’s

They are the chief allegories of getting this inner power!


Jesus is the science to arrive at it


I appreciate the opportunity to spread this information

a reply to: Willtell

Dear Willtell, Sometimes I have the impression when I read the kind of so virulent attacks to the Marian devotion that what is actually really in the middle is a hidden Machism that still prevail in certain sects, where the woman is reduced almost to only a decoration in the life of men.

Only when one realize the so low value that women have in certain groups that like to proclaim to be Christians, reduced to just only the role of wives or mothers, always completely sacrificied to satisfy their families, is that it is possible to understand why is so shocking for this same people to accept St Mary in her role of Matriarch of the Church and also Advocate of us with respect to God.

It is so unacceptable to think that God wanted to reveal itself to a woman as he never did before to any Prophet?

There is too much of Gynophobia in behind such terrible rhetoric against St Mary. Of course if the Mother is treated in such a way we can't expect that St Mary Magdalene can receive a better treatment.

Do you know who were the wives of the reformers Martin Luther or John Calvin? Do you know how many wives The King Henry VIIITh of England had? or how many wives The self proclaimed Prophet Joseph Smith had?

Well the answer to those fundamental questions is crucial to understand whats going on here.

Thanks,
