White smoke at the Vatican. A new Pope has been selected!
Thank you for posting that. As a child in Catholic school, we sang that and we chanted all of the replies to the Latin Mass each day before school began. I had forgotten all of the words but had the melody in my heart.
I think that it’s worked out very nicely.
Pater noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
Definitely no offense intended! I haven’t read any of his writings, although I’ve been reading back through one of JPII’s books right now. I will definitely have to seek some of B16’s books, and give them a read. I admit that I didn’t have the exposure to him that I had to JPII - and that’s my own fault, and no doubt influenced by our horrid media as well...
I thank you for sharing with me your opinion, onyx - I value it greatly.
God Bless you, as well.
And I definitely still agree...
God Bless Pope Francis I, and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI!
I agree with you, but I’m “hoping” because he lives his life more like a Franciscan: small apartment, instead of the bishop’s residence and cooks his own meals.
We have a new Pope, my dear friend ntnychik. Pope Francis. I know you will share our love for him.
Here is what Fr. John Neuhaus had to say about Card. Bergoglio before the last conclave: “Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires is high on every list. Known as an incisive thinker and intensely holy man living an austere life, it is held against him that he is a Jesuit, although he has suffered the slings and arrows of fellow Jesuits of a more progressive bent. No member of a religious order has been elected pope since 1831.”
*fell should obviously be feel in the post I’m responding to, but perhaps that’s a freudian slip, or another little “sign”... lol
Thank you. I still have my old Latin Mass Missal and have a love for the Latin Mass.
Ad majorem Dei Gloriam. The intellect of a Jesuit and the compassion of a Franciscan. (A conflation of Saints Francis of Assisi and Francis Xavier) The first pope from the Americas. An Argentinian of Italian descent and a chemist by training! Splendid!!!
God bless Pope Francis I
Oh, NO offense take at all! Benedict’s trilogy on Jesus is beyond wonderful. Pope John Paul II was unmatched in his own way. He was a saint, in fact, he was beatified on 1 May 2011 under the Papacy of Pope Benedict XVI. (Most fitting on Commie Day = take that!..lol.)
We have a most blessed and wonderful Church!
JOY to ALL!
Unequal distribution could also be speaking to the virtue of Charity. That many people are doing very well now, but the poor are still being forgotten by those who are tasked to give willingly... Not that the government should be the one doing the distributing, mind you.
I keep in mind that translation - I assume he was either speaking in Spanish, or Latin - can lead to the translator picking a word that isn’t necessarily the intent the speaker wished to convey.
His election goes to show all just how wrong the secular media almost always are....
He’s not young, December 17, 1936.
God wanted a Pope from Latin American but not a young one.
Aha! I see what you were referring to now... Excellent observation. :)
These things are completely biblical.
We run into trouble when we try to use Caesar as an equalization agent.
I notice conservatives do tend to become uncomfortable talking about the poor with respect to Scripture just as liberal do when confronted with abortion. As a Christian, though, I must keep the Word of God, and not political ideology, as my primary beacon even if that upsets some.
I saw your response about the missals, and wanted to say thank you... I will definitely check out amazon as well. :)
Would that come before or after everyone is forced to take a mark in their hands or forehead to be able to buy or sell?
Been to any of the large banks recently? BofA is now running interference on their own small-time clients/customers who wish to approach a bank teller. They want to run the bank issued card through a scanner first to determine if one is paying the $12 monthly fee, or the lesser few which allows only ATM and online banking.
They've been trying to do away with bank tellers for more than 20 years now.
When it's decided that folding money itself will be done away with, and they are working on that ---- that's when we will all have real problems. It's coming...can't you feel it?
Somehow I doubt that sort of evil-doing will have it's center in the Vatican, pope-after this last here elected (or even later). I can hardly see the papacy involved with it much at all, at least not as primary drivers of it. It's not like interests there and those of central bankers are one-and-the-same. Quite the opposite?
If those whom wish to control all monetary interest can't get the Vatican to roll over and play along...then if they couldn't simply marginalize them (along with Christianity and individual Christians in a wider sense) then it's concievable they would try to flatten the place (along with Christianity and individuals in the wider sense).
Yet it would be more useful for those whom seek to ultimately control everyone to simply corrupt what there is, in effort to turn what energies can be found in locations such as the Latin church and others, against the need of people for freedom, and towards the interests of those of whom with vieled hands work to enslave the world with monetary debts...so they can then write new rules, etc. That many or most of the "workers" are quite blind to the overall result which is being inevitably approached, is quite beside the point...but a part of the overall methodology. Useful idiots. Was has 'dem.
Without being able to buy fuel, many might find themselves needing turn Amish in a hurry? Or team individuals up like horses to plow the land, if one has any land, and any seed. Then again doing that sort of thing takes perseverance which relies upon some faith which itself relies upon hope...take those things away from man, and he becomes an animal that must either be herded around, or deservedly shot for making trouble for all the rest.
I'm thinking I'd prefer the easier way out, and simply not live to see the day. What worries me is that I will live to see it, but as a decrepit old man not fit to plow.
Love LOVE that Hymn!!
The Church has its own ‘redistribution’ issues, too much ‘wealth’ at the top?
