ATHEISTIC MANIFESTATION

9 August, 2018

niños.jpg

Not long ago some people who call themselves atheists (they do not believe in God) made a demonstration. However, between the phrases that they shouted, they gave to understand clearly that believe in him, because most of the times in their cries they were saying that shit on him. Therefore they are saying that they believe, because nobody in its right mind attacks someone who does not exist. Read the rest of this entry »

Each year the Catholic Church celebrates the Octave for Christian Unity.  Pope John Paul II and Benedict XVI have devoted many efforts to ecumenism in general, and in particular to the unity of churches who believe that God exists between different persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They also believe that the Son assumed human nature about two thousand years ago by intervening in the humanity history as Jesus Christ. Read the rest of this entry »


Poor God, dear God. How we trample thou

2 November, 2017


Several years ago, the movie industry folks in Hollywood produced a comedy named “Airplane.” It was funny, and one or two less successful sequels followed. That period was before air travel became a nuisance of long lines, bare feet, and threats of terrorism. It was also a time when the only fear most air travelers ever experienced was the malfunction of an engine or sudden air turbulence and misinterpreted plane noises. Recently, however, it seems that someone came up with the idea of having an impromptu evangelistic revival meeting at 33,000 feet in the air. Now, that is something new.

Christmas letter

28 October, 2017

   The uncertainty to ballot on 25th December has vanished. There is still some sanity. We will celebrate Christmas Eve together with family returning home for holidays, and prolonging the time after lunch in pleasant company, without having a look at what happens. Read the rest of this entry »


THE NATURAL LAW

28 October, 2017

   It is an expression of love God has for his creatures, for every single one. God does not get out of them, but guarantees his constant help with this natural law written in nature as an indestructible and invaluable guide for our own salvation. And this salvation covers all of us, without distinction as race, skin color, etc. Read the rest of this entry »

   “The bishops of Europe are especially aware of the manifestations of discrimination and intolerance of religion confirm that some values and rights that are fundamental to Europe are far from a reality in some countries on the continent,” said Catholic Bishop András Veres of Szombathely, Hungary, in a comment on a 2011 report in Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano on discrimination against religion in Europe. “To live and give testimony to one’s religious creed within respect for the liberty and sentiments of others will benefit everyone, believers and unbelievers, Christian and non-Christians,” declared the report.

MEETING WITH THE POPE

26 October, 2017

   MEETING WITH THE POPE
AND THE DISABLED IN SAINT JOSEPH’S INSTITUTE, exponent of the civilization of love

   I have found out that one of the great stages of the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Spain, the third after his predecessor, the blessed John Paul II, on the occasion of his apostolic journey to Madrid at the XXVI World Youth Day, was going to be on Saturday 20 August 2011, at St. Joseph’s Institute from 7:40 pm to 8:00 p.m. in order to have an encounter with the young people with disabilities. I had worked in it in my first twenty years of work, such as professor specialized in therapeutic pedagogy. I was one of the first four teachers that inaugurated the classes in May of 1961, and although I was only with an appointment of few months, until we were replaced by permanent teachers, God wanted that I remained there more than twenty years, before becoming education inspector.

THE MUCH CRITICIZED CATHOLIC CHURCH

26 October, 2017

   For some time and from several official media, insults in form of campaigns that systematically attack the Catholic Church have been launched. It is not known exactly the reason, because it usually becomes a tempest in a teapot and the reality hides. This leaves the impression that ecclesiastics are a string of undesirable. However, we must remember that this is one of the purposes of the left and they do it quite well. Read the rest of this entry »


FOLLOWING FISHERMAN’S STEPS

   April 19 marks the fifth anniversary that Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI. That was the day that the Holy Spirit, through the choice of the College of Cardinals, elected a successor to John Paul II.

Are we only earth, maybe?

15 April, 2017

   It appears that only the temporal matters. It seems that we are only guided by the desire to live according to our physiological needs. Where is our spirit? It is as if we were unable to think. And so it is, at least when we accept opinions and promises without checking them, without valuating them previously. There is something as an inclination to get carried away, provided that no effort has to be taken. And this is the most effective way to become formless mass, suitable for being handled by others.

TWO CITIES

29 October, 2014

It seems that in our world have originated two opposite thoughts with resonance to Saint Augustine. Many people are attracted to the Catholic Church in view of the image of unity in doctrine and the moral authority of its teachings. However, we see that Catholics fall into the infidelity, are absorbed by moral relativism and leave the religious practice. The outside noise can override the inner silence that faith needs to grow.

Jhon Paul II and Bin Laden: Peace and war

31 March, 2014

   Two worldwide news occurred almost simultaneously at the beginning of May. On the one hand the beatification of Pope John Paul II and on the other hand the death of Bin Laden in the hands of an American command group in Abbottabad (Pakistan). After the operation, the US president, Barack Obama, explained that his country was not at war against Islam, but against terrorism. Although these are different, both have many followers.
