Barak (which means lightening strikes) is found in the Book of Judges, (out of which judgment comes)where he was lead into battle by a woman Deborah (Lady Liberty) who called herself a mother in Israel and became a judge over them. She became the great whore, and the Mother of Harlots or Mother of Exiles that rides upon the back of the democrat (Ass) Beast. Judges 5:4 Lord, when You went out of Seir, when You march out of the field of Edom, the Earth trembled, and the Heavens dropped, the clouds also dropped water. 5:6 In the days of Shamgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were unoccupied, and the travelers walked through byways. 5:9 My heart is toward the governors of Israel that offered themselves willingly among the people. Revelation 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, come and see.
John 4:5 Then came he to a City of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
It is Habakkuk the Prophet that called down woe upon those that say to the Wood, it should awake, and to the dumb Stone that it should arise and teach.
Habakkuk 2:19 Woe unto him that says to the Wood, Awake; to the dumb Stone, Arise, it shall Teach! Revelation 9:11 speaks of one rider on white (Ass) horse, with many crowns upon his head, which rule the Nation with a rod of Iron, with his garment dipped in blood, having an army following him upon white horses, but the rider is not a him, rather a her (Mystery Babylon the Great). The white (Ass) horse, (Horse with a U, becomes House ) is symbolic of the democratic (Ass) donkey which is the White House.
19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the Earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. Judges 4:4 And Deborah, (a prophetess), the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time. The Bible follows the messianic line to Abraham's son, Isaac, and then to Isaac's son, Jacob who lived around 1900 BC. Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the Earth, and its top reached to Heaven; and there the Angels of the Creator were ascending and descending on it. Jacob had 12 Sons and great possessions not because he was shrewder than Laban but because the Creator was with him. Nothing can exist outside of Life regardless of whom or what they claim to be Good or Bad or just Indifferent. If Mother Earth is not set at Liberty (Free) from the Nations, who are against their own existence, and is using words such as Acceptance and Love, when their desired lifestyle is against Life. It is the Spirit and not the Flesh that is the influence of what I am sent to bear witness to, and if you were not given wings to soar as the eagle, what I say will be incomprehensible, unless you are humble enough to approach what is being said with an open mind and not an educated one. I am not sent to enlighten the people that already know, or who is here to prove how much their Education makes them know; it is only those with the desire to know that I am sent to. Pride in education keeps people in ignorance, so that they would rather condemn the things above their comprehension rather than admit that they are in the dark to Spiritual Truth.
Prophesy would come to fulfillment on this Sunday Night in 2014, where the Grabby Awards opened up between the legs of Beyonce, and exited through the rear, with (queen) Latifah presiding over mass Gay and Lesbian wedding. My question to the descendants of Slaves is this; for a people that profess to know (God) their Creator, as Jay Z said on stage that he wanted to thank him for his woman, do they really believe that the Creator can be mocked? Instead of asking for a love offering, why is it that the ministers doesna€™t explain to Israel in Captivity, that their past History is written in the Holy Bible, and it is this behavior that caused their Ancestors to be brought into Bondage, as Ezekiel Prophesied? Have you now lost your fear because slavery seems to be far behind you?A Isna€™t slavery enough punishment for you to bear, when you are still a despised people? I would like the descendants of slaves, to explain, who give them the confidence to commit these ungodly acts? Since Slavery was the punishment for adopting this lifestyle and behavior, who will protect you from the second punishment? Why would you put your confidence and trust in the very people that brought you into Bondage in the first place, when these same people treat you with hatred and scorn to this very day? Since you are confident that they will protect you from being punished, (because they are the ones with the power to punish others), you should ask them who will protect them from the destruction they have brought upon themselves.
It is written of them that they are like a Pig that was washed from the mud only to go back to it again, where their second judgment will be worst than the first. My Sisters has taken on the identity of Mystery Babylon the Mother of Harlots, and my brothers are even more guilty than they, for they became the follower in partaking of the forbidden fruit. How can I a man, allow the woman of my girl child, to get on the stage of the Sodomites, so that the world of lustful men and women can have sexual fantasies with her all at the same time.
Because they were totally stripped of their (physical) material wealth, It is almost impossible to teach such a people that the way to Spiritual Knowledge and Strength is to let go of the Physical things of Corruption and Sin. How can you get a people whose life has been driven into poverty and hardship (because of loosing everything), to seek the path to Life, (Spiritual over-standing), when that path teaches them to give up the material things they were denied, that they desire to have? If they had possess Spiritual Truth, then Jay Z would know that having the lock and key to his wife physical body, doesna€™t mean that he alone is sleeping with her. Those that live within this Spiritual (eagle) will always ruler over those that allow their physical to rule them, unless they are able to break the spell which is to rise above education and enter into the house of Wisdom. Spiritual whoredom is practiced amongst she that owns the Grabby Awards, the one that makes the unseen decisions, she uses her education to control those that worship her, so they are compelled to do whatever she desire of them.
It is Crya€™ist that said for a man to look at a woman lustfully, he has already committed fornication with her, and she was dressed as the temptress, X-rated fornication. It has been made legal for you to get Drunk (and in love), when the law put an end to prohibition, and you were liberated from yourself, and thought that you found love. It is not even an expression of self-love; it is Imitation love for the Great Whore, who is into herself, (woman power)A that leads only to shame and disgrace.
Real woman power is tied into Life, (not money), this is why she is called Mother (Nature) Earth, and not Mother of Harlots.
The influence of the great whore is so powerful that she first went to the Island and took the Sister that was teaching Cultural Awareness and because of poverty transformed her to become the foundation of this whoredom a€?Dance Halla€?.
She is the one that is the heart of Jahrusalem, and it is from this house thatA spiritual warfare was first made against the Sodomites and their practices. Those condemning this practice were silenced, and their fire put out by those claiming to be the law, that took the side of big money, and have themselves bowed down to the sin.
That it will be fulfilled, when Abram asked that Sodom be spared if there was but Ten Righteous and there was none found, not one, yet Lot by his presence kept the City alive, until he too, was, and is now fed up with Sin. When I speak against those who are the descendants of slavery, I do not speak in terms of condemnation, for how much more can this people be condemned? It is they who first gave up their Freedom and brought condemnation upon themselves (that caused their Bondage), by disobeying the Commands of their Creator, and until now they have refused to give up their sinful behavior.
If they desire to be the blue print of those that rule over them, and who refuse to be corrected, then they will end up in their Condemnation, which is inevitable.
Since they are the people that refuse the mercy shown them, then this mercy will now be withdrawn. For I say Lo I come in the volume of the Book, it is written of I to do Thy Will, in the New Name a€?Jah Rastafaria€? that you have redeemed and have taken unto yourself so as to Liberate outcast Israel. 5:16 Let your light shine for the Glory of Mother Earth, so she will rejoice in you and Glorify in the Father that dwell within the War Dance of Lord Shiva.
I will minister from the Arts, (for it represents my mothers house Stew-art, out of which I am born), and because of the Miseducation of my Sister Lauren Hill, who was brought into the House of Wisdom to sing a€?Lost Onea€? for I am sent to uphold the Commandments and establish New Jahrusalem as a City built upon a Hill.
My Sister has proven to be spiritually stronger than all those who claim to be soldiers and those who believe they have the authority to sit in Judgment against her claiming that she owe them! These Vampires instead of repaying the descendants of those whose labor they robbed and have put into slavery, they sit in the Seat of their Creator as Judge and punisher against those who they have violated and claim they are indebted to them.
I am the root of the Arrogant, sent to say the Law of the Land is the Commandments, and that the Native Inhabitants and those taken as Slave can never be indebted to IRS, or America. Those who call themselves IRS who have made themselves God over the people, should show their faces for the people to see who is it they owe, for their own rules demands that everyone must have a physical Identity outside of a name.
If the IRS (Imperial Rootless Sinners) cannot be identified by face, then the people are indebted to just words, spiritual forces of darkness, the Demons of Forgetfulness. The dance is a pictorial allegory of the five principle manifestations of Eternal energy, Creation, Destruction, Preservation, Salvation, and Illusion.
A A LARGE rose-tree stood near the entrance of the garden: the roses growing on it were white, but there were three gardeners at it, busily painting them red. The Queen turned crimson with fury, and, after glaring at her for a moment like a wild beast, screamed "Off with her head! The soldiers were silent, and looked at Alice, as the question was evidently meant for her. Alice thought she might as well go back and see how the game was going on, as she heard the Queen's voice in the distance, screaming with passion. The hedgehog was engaged in a fight with another hedgehog, which seemed to Alice an excellent opportunity for croqueting one of them with the other: the only difficulty was, that her flamingo was gone across to the other side of the garden, where Alice could see it trying in a helpless sort of way to fly up into one of the trees. The moment Alice appeared, she was appealed to by all three to settle the question, and they repeated their arguments to her, though, as they all spoke at once, she found it very hard indeed to make out exactly what they said. The executioner's argument was, that you couldn't cut off a head unless there was a body to cut it off from: that he had never had to do such a thing before, and he wasn't going to begin at his time of life. The King's argument was, that anything that had a head could be beheaded, and that you weren't to talk nonsense. The Queen's argument was, that if something wasn't done about it in less than no time, she'd have everybody executed all round.
The Cat's head began fading away the moment he was gone, and by the time he had come back with the Duchess, it had entirely disappeared; so the King and the executioner ran wildly up and down looking for it, while the rest of the party went back to the game.
OU can't think how glad I am to see you again, you dear old thing!" said the Duchess, as she tucked her arm affectionately into Alice's, and they walked off together. Alice was very glad to find her in such a pleasant temper, and thought to herself that perhaps it was only the pepper that had made her so savage when they met in the kitchen. She had quite forgotten the Duchess by this time, and was a little startled when she heard her voice close to her ear. The other guests had taken advantage of the Queen's absence, and were resting in the shade: however, the moment they saw her, they hurried back to the game, the Queen merely remarking that a moment's delay would cost them their lives. They had not gone far before they saw the Mock Turtle in the distance, sitting sad and lonely on a little ledge of rock, and, as they came nearer, Alice could hear him sighing as if his heart would break. So they went up to the Mock Turtle, who looked at them with large eyes full of tears, but said nothing.
This was quite a new idea to Alice, and she thought over it a little before she made her next remark. So Alice began telling them her adventures from the time when she first saw the White Rabbit.
Alice said nothing; she had sat down with her face in her hands, wondering if anything would ever happen in a natural way again. The judge, by the way, was the King; and as he wore his crown over the wig, he did not look at all comfortable, and it was certainly not becoming. The Hatter looked at the March Hare, who had followed him into the court, arm-in-arm with the Dormouse.
This did not seem to encourage the witness at all: he kept shifting from one foot to the other, looking uneasily at the Queen, and in his confusion he bit a large piece out of his teacup instead of the bread-and-butter. Here one of the guinea-pigs cheered, and was immediately suppressed by the officers of the court. For some minutes the whole court was in confusion, getting the Dormouse turned out, and, by the time they had settled down again, the cook had disappeared. ERE!" cried Alice, quite forgetting in the flurry of the moment how large she had grown in the last few minutes, and she jumped up in such a hurry that she tipped over the jury-box with the edge of her skirt, upsetting all the jurymen on to the heads of the crowd below, and there they lay sprawling about, reminding her very much of a globe of gold-fish she had accidentally upset the week before. Alice looked at the jury-box, and saw that, in her haste, she had put the Lizard in head downwards, and the poor little thing was waving its tail about in a melancholy way, being quite unable to move.
As soon as the jury had a little recovered from the shock of being upset, and their slates and pencils had been found and handed back to them, they set to work very diligently to write out a history of the accident, all except the Lizard, who seemed too much overcome to do anything but sit with its mouth open, gazing up into the roof of the court. There was a general clapping of hands at this: it was the first really clever thing the King had said that day. At this the whole pack rose up into the air, and came flying down upon her: she gave a little scream, half of fright and half of anger, and tried to beat them off, and found herself lying on the bank, with her head in the lap of her sister, who was gently brushing away some dead leaves that had fluttered down from the trees upon her face. First, she dreamed of little Alice herself, and once again the tiny hands were clasped upon her knee, and the bright eager eyes were looking up into hersa€”she could hear the very tones of her voice, and see that queer little toss of her head to keep back the wandering hair that would always get into her eyesa€”and still as she listened, or seemed to listen, the whole place around her became alive with the strange creatures of her little sister's dream. So she sat on with closed eyes, and half believed herself in Wonderland, though she knew she had but to open them again, and all would change to dull realitya€”the grass would be only rustling in the wind, and the pool rippling to the waving of the reedsa€”the rattling teacups would change to the tinkling sheep-bells, and the Queen's shrill cries to the voice of the shepherd boya€”and the sneeze of the baby, the shriek of the Gryphon, and all the other queer noises, would change (she knew) to the confused clamour of the busy farm-yarda€”while the lowing of the cattle in the distance would take the place of the Mock Turtle's heavy sobs. Venite a vedere - Communion and LiberationCommunion and Liberation is an ecclesial movement whose purpose is the education to Christian maturity of its adherents and collaboration in the mission of the Church in all the spheres of contemporary life. Would you like to have that kind of experience?A Well, that is exactly what happened to the children of Israel when they left Egypt and wandered in the wilderness for forty years. 4:6 And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, have not the Lord God of Israel commanded, saying, go and draw toward Mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun? 5:5 The Mountains melted from before the Lord, even Sinai from before the Lord God of (Babylon the Great) Israel.
5:7 The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a Mother in Israel. The place of drawing waters is where she claim to deliver the people from the Archer, for it is is the place where the Lamb confronted her (Jacobs Well), about her Whoredom.
For she claim to have liberated the people by delivering them from the noise of the (Archer) Lamb. Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it. 19:14 And the armies that were in heaven followed her upon white horses, and were clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 19:16 And she hath on her vesture and on her thigh a name written, (Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots). The Palm was placed in the path of Crya€™ist when he rode into Jahrusalem on a (Ass) donkey. Both his parents were illiterate, but being a devout Christian, his mother sent him to a local Methodist School when he was about seven. The Creator protected Jacob all the way and also prepared his brother Esau's heart so that he was no longer angry. They were first warned by the Creator not to follow the lifestyle and behavior of the Sodomites, and Instead of them being punished for leading you intoA Immorality, it is you that was punished for following them.
It is written that the daughters of Jahrusalem, have made her sister Sodom (who taught her to commit whoredom) look innocent, for she have taken it to a higher level.
You are educated and have enough money now to do as you please, because those that rule over you are doing as they please, is that it? We are born balanced between the Spiritual and the Physical, and the Spiritual is our Strength.
Physical whoredom is manifested amongst she who lives within the lower order of life, she that became the street woman, the outcast. It is Babylon the Great (Revelation 17) who had her singing a€?Drunk In Lovea€?, which is exactly what it was. How will it benefit I in condemning them, seeing that it is only through them that the World will find Freedom.
When I speak against their behavior as the Truth declares, I speak in terms of Correction, not condemnation. The time for overlooking her sins are at an End, so thatA those under her spell (because of her authority over them), will be removed from Spiritual Darkness. 1:32 Who knowing the Judgment of the Creator, that they, which commit such things, are worthy of Death, not only do they do it, but have pleasure in those that that they made into followers. 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the Churches, He that overcome shall not be hurt of the second Death. 5:18 For verily I say unto you, until heaven and earth pass, none of the Commandments shall pass from the Law of Life, until all be Fulfilled.
The rhythm of dance is a metaphor for the Balance in the Universe, which Shiva hold so masterfully. As Lord of the Dance, I am he who is sent to purify the Dance Hall, and return my Sisters back to their Virginity.
Alice thought this a very curious thing, and she went nearer to watch them, and just as she came up to them she heard one of them say "Look out now, Five! The three soldiers wandered about for a minute or two, looking for them, and then quietly marched off after the others. Alice looked up, and there stood the Queen in front of them, with her arms folded, frowning like a thunderstorm. Alice did not quite like the look of the creature, but on the whole she thought it would be quite as safe to stay with it as to go after that savage Queen: so she waited. She was a little nervous about it just at first, the two creatures got so close to her, one on each side, and opened their eyes and mouths so very wide, but she gained courage as she went on.
This, of course, Alice could not stand, and she went round the court and got behind him, and very soon found an opportunity of taking it away. She carried the pepper-box in her hand, and Alice guessed who it was, even before she got into the court, by the way the people near the door began sneezing all at once.
Not so long ago, Pastor sat in a hotel room and watched with a broken heart as a famous evangelist, whose voice once touched the nations of the earth, preached with almost no effect on television.
Jaha€™sus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
This cosmic dance of Shiva is called the Dance of Bliss, and symbolizes the Cosmic cycles of Creation and Destruction, as well as the daily rhythm of Birth and Death. So you see, Miss, we're doing our best, afore she comes, toa€”a€”" At this moment, Five, who had been anxiously looking across the garden, called out "The Queen! Next came the guests, mostly Kings and Queens, and among them Alice recognised the White Rabbit: it was talking in a hurried, nervous manner, smiling at everything that was said, and went by without noticing her. The Cat seemed to think that there was enough of it now in sight, and no more of it appeared. Then againa€”'before she had this fita€”' you never had fits, my dear, I think?" he said to the Queen. Because sin in his personal life had become public information years earlier, his words now seem empty, hollow, and irrelevant.
The word a€?tempteda€? comes from the Greek word peiradzo, an old Greek word that means to put to the test. And he took one of the stones of that place and put it at his head, and he lay down in that place to sleep.
Then followed the Knave of Hearts, carrying the King's crown on a crimson velvet cushion; and last of all this grand procession, came THE KING AND QUEEN OF HEARTS.
Although he once preached to the nations of the world, now the world mocks him because they discovered the message he preached and the life he lived were not the same.A To me, one of the saddest things in the world is to see a man or woman whom God once powerfully used to preach the Gospel to millions of people around the world fall into sin.
We carried it proudly all the way back to one of their houses and proceeded to patch the hole with a piece of plywood and tar.
It meansA to test an object to see if its quality is as good as others have claimed, boasted, or advertised. Forinstance, if you hear that a certain product is the finest of its kind in the world, it would be naturalA for you to want to check out and test the product to verify whether or not it really lives up to itsA claims.
These individuals may have once mightily impacted their nation or city for the Kingdom of God.


It synthesizes the conviction that the Christian event, lived in communion, is the foundation of the authentic liberation of man. But even if they are repentant and receive the forgiveness of God for the sin they committed, other people dona€™t forget so easily. Communion and Liberation is today present in about seventy countries throughout the world.
If they hadna€™tA had the divine intervention of God, they would never have survived their flight from Egypt or their yearsA in the wilderness. But I know enough about chemistry to know that a chemical by itself may be poisonous but not poisonous when in a compound with other chemicals. Like it or not, such sinful actions discredit them and ruin the effectiveness of their ministry.
One of the boys found a canoe paddle in the weeds and we three got into the boat and started to paddle out. Although you didna€™t intend to get into that financial mess, you found yourself in a situation where you needed to see the goodness of God!
But when an a is added to the front of the word, making it the wordA A adokimos, it reverses the condition, which means this isno longer an approved person.
You had heard and believed that God is a supernatural Provider;therefore, in a certain sense, your situation created a moment when Goda€™s goodness and delivering power could be tested.
Now this person has becomeA disapproved, discredited, or disqualified.A This is a person who has lost a high position he once held.
The gathering attracted 4,000 volunteers and 700,000 participants.A The essence of the charism given to Communion and Liberation can be signaled by three factors.
We feverishly paddled with that one oar and bailed out the water with our hands and an old can.
This situation would be the equivalent of you saying, a€?Lord, You say that You are a great Provider, so I need You to show me who You are!
Barely we made it to shore and got out just before the boat sank below the water and headed downstream. One example that comes to mind is Demas, a leader who was so beloved and respected by the Early Church that he is mentioned along with Luke in Colossians 4:14.
Wet, cold and shaking the three of us headed home knowing we would never tell our parents of this stupid adventure. The word a€?proveda€? is takenA from the Greek wordA dokimadzo, which describes something that has been tested and found to be true and genuine. We were lucky to be alive and it was only by Goda€™s grace that I can live to tell about it.
It can be also translated as something that is authentic, reliable, approved, trustworthy, and real.A Moses had declared the goodness of God to the children of Israel, but each challenge they facedA gave God an opportunity to prove that He is exactly as Moses had declared Him to be.
But I have known many ministers of the Gospel who once experienced great success in the ministry and then slowly allowed their fire to go out. Instead of crucifying the flesh and submitting it to the control of the Holy Spirit, they pander to the cravings of the flesh.
As a result, they become dominated by the desires of the flesh, and those fleshly desires very deceptively lead them to fall into sin.A Paul was a great Apostle who was filled with divine revelation and had preached to more people than anyone else in his day.
Nevertheless, one of his greatest concerns was that after doing all he had done for the Kingdom, he might later become a a€?castawaya€? a€” the fate suffered by others whom he had known. But in a broader sense, horao carries the idea of seeing, perceiving, understanding, experiencing, and assimilating into onea€™s self.
Paul didna€™t consider himself so high and mighty that he couldna€™t imagine this happening to him.A Rather than make the mistake others had made by letting his flesh get the best of him, ultimately destroying both him and his reputation, Paul acted with great determination to keep his flesh under control.
This tells us that the children ofIsrael saw and experienced enough of Goda€™s power to fully understand and assimilate it into theirA consciousness. During the six years we had been living in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, we had belonged to St. The wordA doulos is the word for a slave, and the word ago is the Greek word that means to lead.
This means that Paul mastered his body and flesh rather than allowing his body and flesh to masterA him. But you should be aware that the story of Chicken Little is notA  a "fable character." While he did say "The sky is falling" quite a bit, this was only because he had difficulty making contact the his agent provocateur whose actual physical appearance had changed over the years. Thomas was the first parish that my husband and I joined as adults, and our three daughters (the twins had not been born yet) had been baptized there by Reverend Jack Farry. If this is true, and if you take into account that God fed His people every day for 40 years, this meansA 65,700,000 tonsA of manna supernaturally appeared on the ground over a period of forty years!
A This manna appeared so regularly, so faithfully, so a€?day in and day out,a€? that after a while, theA children of Israel didna€™t even think too much of it anymore.
His eyes became instruments through which he was able to identifyA needs that Goda€™s power could meet. Supernatural provision became so commonplaceA among them that they forgot how supernatural it was and began to accept it as a normal,A regular occurrence. His voice became the voice of salvation, healing, and deliveranceA to those who heard him preach.
To my delight and amazement, Sarah and her assistant were offering Catechesis of the Good Shepherd! His hands became the hands of God that brought a healingA and compassionate touch to those in need. I promptly signed up my second daughter as well and began to spend the sessions in the back of the atrium, lurking. The video faculty includes Eric Hulsizer, a former Channel 8 cameramanA who photographed "Channel 8 On Your Side," and Lisa Inserra of Cox Media (the company that owns Valpack) who is active in producing television commercials for her company's clients.az?i»? In my program, I've studied drawing, camera operation, scripting, digital imaging, programming basics, copyright law, video editing, website design, sound production and editing.
Paula€™s body, which he determined to make his slave andA his instrument, was never allowed to have its own way. As Sarah and I became better friends, and as I began to fall in love with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, Sarah told me that she also belonged to a lay ecclesial movement, called Communion and Liberation. One of myA professors says the program is the best of its kind in the Tampa Bay area and I think he's right.az?i»?i»? Please, please, put the word out to others so that this fine program will be better known. Sometimes that other road will bring you back to your original path and sometimes it will take you farther away from it. I remember thinking that CL must be cool, since Sarah was also into CGS, and it was super cool, but aside from hearing about what it meant for her, I wasn't really very interested in it.
It doesn't matter what your heritage is or whether you are still in high school or old enough for Medicare.
Dona€™t cut your flesh too much slack, friend, or it wona€™t be long beforeita€™s running all over you and telling you what to do.
Thata€™s right a€” if each Israelite ate only one quail a day, in one month it would amount to 90,000,000 quail. If they ate two quail a day, the total numberA needed to feed them all for thirty days would rise toA 180,000,000 quail. In other words, you will eventually become broken by it.A Dona€™t join the ranks of those who were once used by the Lord but are now set aside and ruined because they refused to bring their bodies into subjection. But when my husband told me that he needed something more, in order to live his faith more fully, I quickly recommended that he speak to Sarah and her husband about CL. But God used him to gather and lead his people out of Pharaoha€™s slavery and split the Red Sea in two.A  Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers and was cast into prison but became the second most powerful person inEgypt. Thata€™s how many quail it took to feed that crowd of three million Israelites in a thirty-day period.
Well, he fell in love right away, and started giving me Father Giussani's books to read and asking me to come to School of Community. I read the books, and found them very beautiful, if unoriginal (yes, I'm sorry, but my only criticism of Father Giussani was that he wasn't saying "anything new." Now, I think one of the greatest things about him is that he doesn't say "anything new"!). Petersburg Collede digital arts program is filled with both talented professors and students. I know of other people to whom this has happened.They were once mightily used, but they have since become discredited and disqualifiedA because of their lack of passion or the immoral mistakes they have made in their lives.
But as for School of Community, I didn't want to give up an evening at home with my children so that I could meet with a bunch of adults to speak about Jesus -- my faith received such a powerful electric charge when I became a mother, and it seemed wrong not to include my children in every aspect of my spiritual journey. HelpA me to maintain Your fire in my soul and to walk a straight and narrow path that leads toA life and abundance.
When we moved to Ohio three years ago, it was a time to make new friends, and I wanted to meet other people who were following Father Giussani. I dona€™t want to stray from the path You have set before me or to knockA myself out of the race.
Though I still thought that he wasn't saying "anything new," I was hungry for friends who were following the Church: the old, essential, not-at-all new Church. The thick clouds of quail must have been dense enough to nearly block the peoplea€™s view of the sun! Sometimes, among other Catholics, I feel so disoriented hearing about particular devotions or charisms that seem unfamiliar to me. Or, maybe just maybe a smile or a kind word from you to a stranger may just prevent them from going home and ending their own life and their grandson will some day save the world. Father Giussani had the peculiar genius for cutting through all of the "extras" and going straight to the heart of Christianity -- he tirelessly proposed Jesus Christ (much as our current Pope, Benedict XVI does). When evil thoughts try to invadeA my mind, I take those thoughts captive and command them to leave. What is new about CL is not so much a particular theology, but a way of living out Christianity that is vital, vibrant, and vivifying.
From what distance did God supernaturally call in the quail to feed the children of Israel?A This phenomenon simply could not be naturally explained.
In your story on stadium horns, you called them vuvuzwelas, what is that funny looking symbol after the photo credits.
I have invested too muchA of myself into the work of God to allow such low-level thoughts to pull me down and takeA me out.
He will bring to light things that are now hidden in darkness, and will make known the secret purposes of people's hearts. It was just as miraculous as the 4,500 tons of manna that miraculously appeared on the ground everyA morning for forty years.A How about the water that came out of the rock to meet the Israelitesa€™ need for water in the wilderness? Do you know ministers of the Gospel or well-known Christians who no longerA have the powerful testimony and influence they once did in the Body of ChristA because they allowed themselves to fall into immorality? It involves being able to see our Lord, beloved and adored, in the bonds of friendship that exist between and among ordinary, sometimes uninspiring, Christians. Do you have any idea how much water it would take to support three million Israelites in the blistering hot temperatures of the wilderness?
What Father Giussani both proposed and also demonstrated in reality is that Christ is not only present as Bread and Wine in the Eucharist, he is also present in the unity that exists in his people -- the Body of Christ. When we gather together, we can meet him in the flesh.Some people wonder: why do you need anything in addition to parish life?
As you look at what you are permitting in your own life, can you think of anyA destructive stronghold that could eventually grow into a problem serious enoughA to knock you out of the race of faith? Throw your troubled waters out of your boat and paddle on down that river of life with Him at your side. It is true that the Eucharist vivifies and enlivens any particular parish community, but what seems to be most difficult for us is to live with an awareness of what the sacraments mean. And consider the amount of water it would have taken to adequatelyA nourish 3,000,000 people and all the animals in the hot temperatures of the wilderness. Without an awareness of what our Baptism means, what our Confirmation means, what our participation in the Eucharist means, we sleepwalk through our lives, and miss so much! You have ears, but you don't really listen.Psalm 13:2 -- How long must I worry and feel sad in my heart all day? God is reaching out toward us, wanting to meet us in all our present moments, but we easily get distracted.
We need friends who live this awareness, who are willing to live this awareness along with us.Some people also wonder whether joining a movement narrows our involvement in the Church. I have been praying for something to happen for 4A? years now and what I prayed for was not granted. But because there was no natural source of water, it had to be provided for themA supernaturally.A So God told Moses to strike the rock (see Exodus 17). The more I follow this one particular charism, the more universal my understanding of so many other aspects of the Church has become. The image can be used freely, subject to some restrictive terms in the license, including crediting the photographer. In fact, being involved with CL has opened me up to the international dimension of the Church, as well as opening my heart to people in my immediate environment who are different from me. And once water started to flow, it continued to flowA and flow and flow, providing all the water needed by the people of God.
The law of the Incarnation always works this way -- Christ comes to me and shows me the whole, in all its universality, through particular circumstances.I would be remiss if I didn't mention Father Vincent. Even though my involvement with CL had become more consistent and serious when we moved to Ohio three years ago, it wasn't until the first Lent retreat we had here in my new town, led by Father Vincent, that I finally let my heart be fully engaged in CL. Leta€™s speak of reality a€“ He is God and He can do what He wants to or not do what He doesna€™t want to. After experiencing this kind of miraculous supply on such a continual basis, they should have trusted the Lord andA found it easy to follow Him. We cannot command the Lord to do anything whether we do it in pleading, tears, anger, or desperation.
Hadna€™t He always supernaturally provided what they needed when there was no natural provision to be found?
I pray for his work there, and that he may bring even more people into our beautiful friendship! If God has the will, He may answer our prayers about life but nothing says that He absolutely has to. What a privileged generation they were to see such marvelous acts of God!A But in spite of all the Israelites had seen, experienced, and assimilated about Goda€™s goodness, they became hardhearted.
It looks to me like he called on Curtis LeMay, Colonel Clearwater - and then realizing he had made a mistake - schluffed it into Colonel Kilgore. All we have is the hope that he will hear us, see what we are going through, and grant us a little drop of His mercy in this life.

Panorama, October 30th, 2003 Fr Giussania€™s letter to the Fraternity following the annual pilgrimage to Loreto. It was also used to describe the hardened soil of the desert a€” soil that was so hardened that water was unable to penetrate it and instead rolled right off.
June 22nd, 2003 Fr Giussania€™s letter to the Fraternity for the twentieth anniversary of the Pontifical recognition of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation. February 22nd, 2002 Fr Giussania€™s testimony as presented at the Pontifical Council for the Laitya€™s Seminar, a€?Ecclesiastical movements and the new communities in the pastoral care of the Bishopsa€?. Is it possible that they became calloused toA the goodness of God because He had showered them with so much goodness? The word a€?hardena€? seems to imply they becameA so calloused that nothing impressed them anymore. 1989A The beginning and end of Christian morality I've been reading ahead in Is It Possible to Live This Way? He will cure a cancer, heal the deaf, grow an arm back or bring someone back to life but that does not mean He will do it all the time. No matter how much of Goda€™s Spirit was poured out on them, His Presence justA rolled off them, unable to penetrate their hard hearts. After a long discussion on the true meaning of freedom, Father Giussani writes: "Freedom isn't choice, it's only a possibility to choose because it's imperfect" (p. And then on the next page: Yet carrying out this correct choice demands a clear awareness of the relationship with Christ, of the relationship with destiny. He has given us guidance through His word (the Bible) and occasionally gives us a nudge or lesson to learn from but basically kicks us out of the nest like the mother bird does to face the challenges of life. He changed you, healed you, delivered you, rescued your family,A gave you a new job, answered your prayers, and provided for you financially time and time again,A showering you with blessing upon blessing over the years. He's near Simon and He says to him, very softly, without the others realizing, He says quietly, 'Simon, do you love me more than these?' This is the culmination of Christian morality: the beginning and the end of Christian morality. I get so frustrated at times that my prayers are not answered and I have to keep reminding myself that this is my life and I need to deal with it on my own sometimes. He proved Himself again and again, repeatedlyA demonstrating that He is reliable, trustworthy, and true.
Their job is to preach the message to inspire, encourage, and give hope to their congregations. Man finds his dignity in the choice of what he values most in life and from which he expects the greatest satisfaction. ItA is true that You have showered me with nonstop blessings a€” and today I want to take thisA opportunity to thank You for every good thing Youa€™ve done in my life.
The situations I haveA faced in my life have put You to the test, and You have jumped at every chance to prove howA good You are. I have understood for a long time that freedom and morality are tightly bound in Father Giussani's thought.
If we are to be an example of His mercy to others, it can only be done with people of lesser stature than us. I have also grasped that his denunciation of moralism was never brought on by a disdain for morality. I have everyA reason to trust Him, for He has proven Himself to me again and again and I know He willA never let me down. And the heart is not "what I like" or "what I want" -- it's the constant thirst for what I'm made for, my destiny, Christ. He wants us to spread the Gospel and not make up stories of what He has done for us personally in life. I can be seduced to imagine that something I want is my destiny -- if I lose sight of the ever-expanding horizon that calls me with an Infinite love.
Moralism's answer, which says we have to suppress our desire, do violence to our desire, is useless, even mortally dangerous, to our souls. Just show others how you believe in His salvation and forgiveness and tell them of His Word.
It is the solution of a lonely humanity, a humanity that has ceased to listen to the voice that calls each of us by name, a humanity without Christ. We need to hear Him ask us, "Do you love me?" We need to let that question burn into our hearts every minute of every hour, engage us, draw us through our days. As you read todaya€™s Breakfast, did you begin to think of all the times God has supernaturally provided for your own life? Because even those who are so blessed to have heard Jesus speak directly to them through metaphysical means, do not hear this question so perfectly and constantly that they can forgo the Eucharist or the people of God, who make up the Church. It would be very beneficial for youA to take a few minutes to reflect on all the times God has miraculously suppliedA what you needed.A 2.


No, God has willed it that we must turn to one another -- there is no other way -- and remind each other that He asks, He continually asks, "Do you love me?"If you expect your satisfaction from something that can be dust tomorrow, you'll have dust. Have you had so many miraculous provisions in your life that youa€™ve begunA to lose your appreciation for all that God has done for you? He has promised everything in His kingdom of Heaven to those who accept His Son as Lord and Savior. Do I love them?A  The meaning of tenderness Father Giussani and Enzo PiccininiDuring the summer of 2006, my family and I participated in the CL summer vacation for the Varese (Italy) community that took place in the Dolomites (San Martino di Castrozza). During those very rich days, we heard a talk given by a priest whose name escapes me and who was introduced as the spiritual director for Memores Domini in Italy (or something -- I don't speak Italian!
Life here is just a temporary setback, trial and test to see if we are worthy of everlasting life sharing in His love -- or without it in a very dark place. So accept His Son as your Lord and claim the only real promise that He made to us --- Forgiveness and Salvation.
In any case, the theme of his talk was "complaining" ("lamentare" -- which my Italian English teacher friend kept translating into my ear as "moaning" -- luckily I know British English and I know that this word is used as we would use "complaining" in America). In any case, the very strong theme of his talk was that "lamentare" is a form of violence, the worst kind of violence -- an "ugly" violence ("brutto" means ugly, not "brutal," right?). Here's a photo of American school children using the original Bellamy salute:A I think the photo speaks for itself. Colonel Clearwater Dear Colonel Clearwater: What do you think about the Egyptian revolution?
Memory - the greatest Christian word I know - that makes presentsomething that happened long ago. In his daughter [Emmanuel Mounier'sdaughter, Francoise with micro-encephalitis], in the circumstance thateveryone considered to be misfortune, a sign emerged that forced oneto think of the present Mystery of Christ.This is memory. May this start to become normal among us, may it be asign that forces us to think of the Mystery of Christ as present! Fundamentalists, in any religion, are usually a reaction to what the followers perceive as injustice. It is the demand for a humanexperience that can be considered such, because this is my life's mostabsolute necessity.b. This doesn't mean Egyptian society and culture will necessarily change; it is still their culture and values. But in the long run any thing they make of it will be for their benefit (and not the benefit of the United States). But it is not the complaints that break theheart of a suffering child, it is the complaints that burden the heartand ears of those listening, which render life difficult for thosearound us, and our life becomes a sentence also for others, a life-lament that does not know happiness, and even less, joy.c. But whoever sets up his life as lamentation does not know the grandthing that makes man great: tenderness. The man who complainsdoes not know tenderness, but vomits onto others what he has insidehim. Not by rampeling down the side of the building like Tom Cruise, but by sliding in with a tourist visa when it was not open to tourists. It was like a sign pointing down a road that I refused to travel because I thought I already knew it and had already been on it.What was different about Father Vincent?
Clearwater: Republicans are betting that your readers don't care - that after all you did to beat them in 2006 and 2008, you're going to sit this one out. When the foreign thought entered my mind that day: "This is for me!", perhaps it was just that having moved to a new town so recently, I was less sure of myself, less comfortable with all the answers I was carrying around inside of me. So they're whipping up their base by blocking help to unemployed workers, blocking summer jobs for teens, apologizing to the big companies that gave us the spill in the Gulf, and doing anything else they can do to stop progress. What is so weird is that I've spent very little time with this priest, and he's kind of spotty about reading and responding to his emails. I experience it in my daily life, mostly as a result of the profound and moving experience of School of Community this year, but most importantly in the new fraternity group that Marie and I have formed. Yes, that Rand Paul, who says freedom means a private business can discriminate against African-Americans, and that President Obama holding polluters accountable for the mess in the Gulf is "un-American." And he's not alone. One candidate calls Social Security "horrible policy," while another has said that Americans will turn to "Second Amendment remedies" against Democrats.
First he placed a small standing crucifix on the table in front of us.1) He pointed to the crucifix and said, "We do SoC for him -- not for the movement, not because of the movement -- but because of him. In New Hampshire, Paul Hodes is running neck-and-neck with his Republican opponent to take this seat for the Democrats. It doesn't depend on anything or anyone else, so we have our freedom, and no one can limit us or our freedom to do it because I have all I need and you have all you need. We've just started to turn our country around, passing healthcare reform, working to hold the big banks accountable for the Wall Street meltdown, pushing legislation to address climate change and end our addiction to oil. The GOP is betting big that saying "no" and blocking progress is a path to success in November.What bet will you make?
No, the only one who knows it and gives it as a gift is Christ [points again to the crucifix].
They come because of the charism, because of him [points again to the crucifix], so you should be grateful that he sends them to you, and you should care for them, and be surprised and amazed that they come." "This is the Victory that Conquers the World, Our Faith" "We come to the Fraternity Exercises in order to revisit the things we always tell each other. I think the Republicans should adopt as their emblem the condom because it more clearly reflects the party's political stance.
A condom stands for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives one a sense of security while screwing others. We meet all together because there is nothing, normally, that can help the emotion of the heart or the liveliness of perception of our mind, nothing capable of influence, like a tender, motherly, brotherly, friendly push on our will, more than our coming together." (Fr. Giussani)The content of the Spiritual Exercises took our book of the School of Community, Is It Possible to Live this Way?
I have so many thoughts about the content, but I want to write about them after all my blogging friends have returned from the exercises, so that perhaps we can have a discussion about them. Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, Last week, my friend and colleague, Congressman Anthony Weiner, did something very good, and very gutsy.
Meanwhile, though, there are three very important things that happened for me at these exercises:Many of our friends from the Chicago community were present at these particular exercises, and being face-to-face with them reminded me of my reasons for keeping myself apart from the movement during the years I lived there. I was particularly struck, thinking about what my life would have been if I had dived right into living the proposals of the movement while I was among these people who first introduced me to them. Weiner's report showed that this firm, which sells gold coins, rips off its customers while benefiting directly from Beck's Chicken Little lunacy about the economy. Every time Beck screams that there is an impending Obama-led government takeover of the economy and your savings aren't safe, he's making a sales pitch for this sleazy advertiser. You see, Beck's ratings have recently crashed, and most of his reputable advertisers have deserted him.
To be specific: it was the sin of pride: I already knew how Christ came to me, I already knew what Christ wanted of me, I already had a history of working out my Christianity on my own and I didn't want anyone to tell me that that history was limited and starved for oxygen because I knew it was beautiful, dammit! To use the CL way of characterizing this attitude, I was reducing the Mystery to my own measure, insisting on making the decisions about how and where and when Christ had something to say to me.
Now that he's been exposed, Beck has spent the last week using his big media platform to attack and undermine Weiner - he even set up an attack website designed to damage Weiner's political standing. What is amazing to me is that I could come to these conclusions based on piety, how I was reading Fr.
This collusion between big media, conservative commentators, and quack economics is a scam, but it is powerful if it remains unopposed.
But what I was hung up on was the scandal of the appearance of the local Church -- that Christ could manifest himself in these particular people, with all their irritating and unpleasant humanity (sorry, my friends), was just too much for me to digest. And we need to support people like Weiner, who have the guts to go after right-wing lunacy at the source.
How hard it is to understand this distinction until you've lived through the mistake of confusing them (and the consequences of this mistake -- which are loneliness and bitterness). Consider his statement: "I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site.
Being among these people now, I see their beauty -- it is a profound beauty, one that makes me ask, "Who is this man who could cause such a miracle among these particular people?"What a different experience it was for me to go to the exercises with Marie, my fraternity sister! Last year, I went "alone" -- of course, I immediately hooked up with new friends when I went to Minnesota, and I never for a moment felt myself to be alone while I was there, but what I mean was that I did not go with anyone from my local community. During these exercises, Marie and I discussed what we were hearing and witnessing, just as I did with the people I met in Minnesota last year, but I was able to express so much more with her -- the conversations went much deeper and were also much more concrete because we share a history already. There is also a whole new dimension to the content of the exercises for me -- because I know that in our fraternity group I will be wrestling with what Father Carron's lessons mean for Marie, as well as for myself.
This brings out facets I never would have considered, and it enriches my life.As I tried to formulate a question for the assembly, and then, as I sought answers to my questions, I discovered that my biggest vulnerability or weakness has to do with an urge to organize or even strategize the Mystery. What was particularly striking about this personal insight is that this is not the first time I've recognized this problem in myself and vowed to overcome it.
Before joining the Fraternity, I never thought of myself as a control freak -- if anything, I felt "organizationally challenged" and desired a little more control and strategy in my life. That oil disaster must be stopped, and a way must be found."I am not the original author of that sensible thought, but it has been my favorite definition of faith for a while.
But it is not my life that I seem compelled to organize and control, in any case (that's still something I contemplate on the level of "impossible dream") -- it's the way that Christ chooses to show himself to me in my surroundings and in the community he's given me.
This topic probably requires its own blog post, so let's just leave it on the level of vague abstraction right now.
While we have no way of certainty for moving past them, working to find a pathway that takes us beyond our doubts is the best option in my view.
Untiring Openness, Most Faithful Unity The above photo comes from the Communion and Liberation website and was taken during the March 24, 2007 audience with Pope Benedict XVI. Many diverse things have been happening in my life, lately, but in response to all of them, this phrase, "Untiring Openness, Most Faithful Unity," keep popping into my thoughts.
Father Carron, in a letter he wrote to everyone in the movement before the audience, mentioned these words and said that they came from something Fr.
I did a search, and didn't find the reference (maybe someone out there knows where this phrase comes from?), but I have been really moved (and corrected!) to consider what it means to be untiringly open and most faithful to unity.I especially appreciate the Italian word apertura, which means openness.
It reminds me of the fact that a photograph cannot come into being without allowing light to enter through the aperture.
Without this openness, beauty remains a fleeting thing that passes by me without ever moving me, and I have nothing to give, nothing to show, nothing even to say. Then how come Congress starts each session with a prayer and the president is sworn in on a Bible? Wants to KnowDear Wants to Know, As I said in an earlier reply, our countrys laws and structure are not based on the God of the Bible and the Ten Commandments, as Sarah Palin and others claim.
During the six years we had been living in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, we had belonged to St. So most of us do not work on Sunday and some businesses are not open for business on Sunday.
So we have a religious custom of not working on Sunday and a secular custom of watching football on Sunday. The Constitution states that the president must take an oath, but it does not mention anything about a Bible.
Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, I understand you answer, but you say customs and traditions.
I remember thinking that CL must be cool, since Sarah was also into CGS, and it was super cool, but aside from hearing about what it meant for her, I wasn't really very interested in it.
Wants to Know MoreDear Wants to Know More, It is important to realize the difference between a custom and a tradition.
It is a custom at my house that every year we watch football on Thanksgiving Day after we eat. Well, he fell in love right away, and started giving me Father Giussani's books to read and asking me to come to School of Community.
A tradition is a ceremony invented for the purpose of commemorating some historical event or to develop a sense of binding in a community or religious group.
Thanksgiving Day is a tradition in America that serves the purpose of reminding us of what we have from God for which to be thankful and is loosely based on the first harvest feast of the Pilgrims to celebrate their first year of survival in the New World. But as for School of Community, I didn't want to give up an evening at home with my children so that I could meet with a bunch of adults to speak about Jesus -- my faith received such a powerful electric charge when I became a mother, and it seemed wrong not to include my children in every aspect of my spiritual journey.
It is a tradition; a ceremony we use to create a common bond among Americans by commemorating our heritage.
When Congress meets, the first thing that happens is that the designated speaker calls the group together. Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater, I have just seen a video about an organization called the Council on Foreign Relations. This organization has members who were past Presidents and past Secretary of States of the United States, plus leaders in the fields of finance, industry, and other important positions in society. Even though my involvement with CL had become more consistent and serious when we moved to Ohio three years ago, it wasn't until the first Lent retreat we had here in my new town, led by Father Vincent, that I finally let my heart be fully engaged in CL. The spokesman on the video has concluded that this organization must be a part of world conspiracy to take over the world and put the entire world under a one-world socialist government and I agree with him. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an organization of foreign policy experts, people concerned with international trade, prominent historians and writers, as well as others who are involved with foreign policy and international affairs. The CFR hold speaking events with question-and-answer periods which are usually televised on CSpan or other cable stations.
The speakers are usually world leaders, historians, writers, or others involved in international affairs. Some of the speakers have included such figures as Nelson Mandela, George Soros, Thomas Friedman, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Ronald Reagan.
The journal, which I have subscribed to and read for over 25 years (plus you can buy it at the newsstands in Borders or Barnes and Noble) provides a forum for contrasting views and opinions regarding issues affecting foreign policy.
Some people have made a nice living scarring others with conspiracy theories about the CFR.
My advice to you is to go to the store, buy and read their journal, watch their events on CSpan, and be wary of people who wish to sell you on the idea that other people are out to get you.

1989A The beginning and end of Christian morality I've been reading ahead in Is It Possible to Live This Way? And no matter how great the obstacles may seem, we must never stop our efforts to reduce the weapons of war. We must never stop at all until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of this earth." Ronald Wilson Reagan, 1984 Colonel ClearwaterDear Colonel Clearwater: Liberals? I realize that there is collateral damage in war, but this is no less than cold-blooded genocide. I have understood for a long time that freedom and morality are tightly bound in Father Giussani's thought.
Moralism's answer, which says we have to suppress our desire, do violence to our desire, is useless, even mortally dangerous, to our souls. They were shooting at insurgents who, upon later investigation, turned out to be civilians. By saying the soldiers were shooting civilans implies that they knew they were shooting civiliansj.
The real guilty party are those who convinced the American public that this war was necessary and just.
During those very rich days, we heard a talk given by a priest whose name escapes me and who was introduced as the spiritual director for Memores Domini in Italy (or something -- I don't speak Italian! Can you tell me how the "Smallest of the World's Leading Newspapers" managed to scoop "Florida's Best Newspaper?" Pedro TechadorDear Pedro, Always nice to hear from one of the Techadors.This was a WikiLeak scoop. Palin:Your statement reminds me of what Republican Congressman, Devin Nunes said during the health care vote. And now you are bringing the ghosts back into this chamber." There is no polite way to get around this. Tea Party Patriots are morons when it comes to history, economics, and how to run a society. Much like the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan after World War I, the Tea Party Patriots are people who believe they have lost their privileged status in American society and wish to thwart others hopes for the American dream. Unfortunately, or fortunately (depending on which editor yells loudest) President Obama considers Wall Street, the banks, the Republicans in congress, and those with tea party policies as necessary players in the solution when they are, in fact, part of the problem. Both the Senior Citizens' Right to Work Act and the Family Medical Leave Act were passed this way. It doesn't depend on anything or anyone else, so we have our freedom, and no one can limit us or our freedom to do it because I have all I need and you have all you need.
How hard it is to understand this distinction until you've lived through the mistake of confusing them (and the consequences of this mistake -- which are loneliness and bitterness).
Being among these people now, I see their beauty -- it is a profound beauty, one that makes me ask, "Who is this man who could cause such a miracle among these particular people?"What a different experience it was for me to go to the exercises with Marie, my fraternity sister!

This topic probably requires its own blog post, so let's just leave it on the level of vague abstraction right now. Word Among Us The Holy Rosary By Luigi Giussani.Sent by the Father- A A greeting at the close of a retreat of the Novices of the Memores Domini. If there were no moments of this kind, the Mystery could do anything, but in the end, we would reduce everything to the usual explanation. But not even a Nobel Prize winner can stop himself from being dumbstruck before an absolutely gratuitous gesture.
If there were not these moments, we would find answers, explanations, and interpretations to avoid being struck by anything. It is good that some things happen that we cannot dominate, then we have to take them seriously, and this is the great question of philosophy. If this were not the case, then we could dominate everything and be in peace, or at least without drama. Instead, not even the intelligence of a Nobel Prize winner could prevent him from coming face-to-face with a fact that made him dumbstruck -- instead of dominating, it was he who was dominated. It is the drama that unfolds between us and the Mystery, through certain facts, certain moments, in which the Mystery imposes itself with this evidence.
These are facts that we cannot put in our pocket, which we cannot reduce to antecedent factors. This blossoming will not bloom only at the end of time; it has already begun on the dawn of Easter. The Spirit of Jesus, the Word made flesh, becomes an experience possible for ordinary man, in His power to redeem the whole existence of each person and human history, in the radical change that He produces in the one who encounters Him, and, like John and Andrew, follows Him.
