Pope Francis’ Music 

11 10 2017

​I could not resist writing  about  Pope Francis’ favorite music. In an interview with Michael J. Ruszala,  Pope Francis said he liked  Mozart 

“I loves Mozart, he said, “The ‘Et incarnatus est’ from his Mass in C minor is matchless; it lifts you to God!”

He said he also loved the Mozart performed by Clara Haskil. 

” It fulfills me…. And then Bach’s Passions.”

“The piece by Bach that I love so much is the ‘Erbarme Dich,’ the tears of Peter in the ‘St. Matthew Passion.’ Sublime.” 

Here is the “Erbarme dich, mein Gott,” by Johann Sebastian Bach: The song describes Peter’s lament after having denied knowing Jesus three times. 

Bach shows you his guilt and sadness, in some of the most beautiful and moving music he’s ever written.. Have a go and listen to it, enjoy the Popes favorite tunes. 

Incidentally Bach’ s music has been  converting many Atheist to belief in God 

Lyrics 

Erbarme dich, mein Gott, Um meiner Zähren Willen! Schaue hier, Herz und Auge Weint vor dir bitterlich. Erbarme dich, erbarme dich!

English translation: 

Have mercy, my God, for the sake of my tears! Look here, heart and eyes weep bitterly before You. Have mercy, have mercy





The snazzy young man and the old man 

9 10 2017

 A snazzy, young French man traveling by train to Paris, many years ago was sharing a compartment with on old man who looked like a pauper – simple clothes, short hair, and weather-beaten face.

The man noticed the rosary gripped in the old man’s hands, and the devotion and concentration expressed on his face.

The young man thought he would have some fun, so he said to the old man,

“I see that you still believe in that medieval bunk about praying your beads. Do you also believe in all the other myths the priests try to teach us?”

“Yes, indeed,” the old man answered, “don’t you?”

“Me? Do I believe in all that ridiculous superstition? ”

The young man laughed out loud. Then he said,

” I gave that up in college. And if you want to be smart, you should throw those beads out the window and start studying some real, scientific truth.”

The old man answered,

“I don’t understand what you mean. Maybe you could help me.”

The young whippersnapper felt he had been a little harsh, so he answered,

“Well, I could send you some articles, if you like. Do you know how to read?”

“More or less,” the old man answered.

“Good – so where should I send the material?”

The old man fumbled in his coat pocket and then handed over a card.

It bore a simple inscription: Louis [the “s” is silent] Pasteur [pass-TOUR] – Paris Institute for Scientific Research.

Louis Pasteur was the nineteenth-century giant of microbiology who proved the germ-theory of disease and invented the rabies vaccine.

His great intelligence certainly didn’t hinder his spiritual life. He is an indictment to anyone who claims to be too busy to pray. One can combine great achievement with a humble perseverance in prayer





​Strength of Mind

The kind of intellectual laziness found today even among the highly educated, is absurd and hard to explain given that we are living  in an age of such easy access to information. Watch  Ben Shapiro exposing  the deep ignorance, or the shallow knowledge of a man  who thinks he can justify abortion. 





No Right to Homosexual Marriage says World Court  of Human Rights 

26 09 2017

HOMOSEXUAL WEDDING – JUDGMENT OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS COURT OF STRASBOURG – FRANCE Unanimously, the World Court of Human Rights has established, verbatim, that “there is no right to homosexual marriage.”

The 47 judges of the 47 countries of the Council of Europe, which are members of the full Court of Strasbourg (the world’s most important human rights court), issued a statement of great relevance that has been surprisingly silenced by information progressivism and its area of ​​influence. In fact, unanimously, the 47 judges approved the ruling that “there is no right to homosexual marriage.”

The sentence was based on a myriad of philosophical and anthropological considerations based on natural order, common sense, scientific reports and, of course, positive law.Within the latter, in particular, the judgment was based on Article 12 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

This is equivalent to the articles of human rights treaties, as in the case of 17 of the Pact of San José and nº 23 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. In this historic but not disclosed, Resolution, the Court decided that the concept of family not only contemplates “the traditional concept of marriage, that is, the union of a man and a woman”, but also that they should not be imposed on governments to “obligation to open marriage to persons of the same sex”.

As for the principle of non-discrimination, the Court also added that there is no discrimination, since “States are free to reserve marriage only to heterosexual couples.”

****It is important and absolutely necessary to spread this kind of news because governments and sympathizers of such lobbies will not want people to know. Help spread if you want! Obviously, it does not interest the media to publicize this news.

Great Teen returns a wallet full of cash on camera! 

21 09 2017

With so many dark things going on these days, it is refreshing to see some light; this time from a teen, 18 yr old Tyler Opdyke who  found a wallet full of cash ($1500) as he was walking on a side walk. Guessing that the wallet belonged to the house next door, he went to the house and tried to return it. He rang the door bell several times but the owners would not come out. Realizing that they were watching him from a security camera facing the door, showed the wallet to the security camera, dropped it at the door and backed away.

A woman, Mellisa Vang,  watching from the security camera inside, seeing the stranger and not knowing what he was up to did not open the door… as any prudent person would not.

“I usually don’t open doors to strangers,” she said.

But when the boy left, she came out saw what it was: her husband’s wallet! The boy had found it and was trying to return it, she felt deeply grateful when she realized the wallet was filled with cash and her husband’s credit cards.

Luckily the boy returned to check if the wallet was still there and when she and her daughter saw him again through the camera, they rushed downstairs, flung the door open and embraced him.


The woman posted  his  honest act on her Facebook page and it has since gone viral.

This is a great story, a great example for all the teens out there!






Why we hurt our kids when we don’t want them to struggle like we did 

19 09 2017

A man, an avid Gardener saw a small Butterfly laying few eggs in one of the pots in his garden.
Since that day he looked at the egg with ever growing curiosity and eagerness.

The egg started to move and shake a little.

He was excited to see a new life coming up right in front of his eyes.

He spent hours watching the egg now. 

The egg started to expand and develop cracks.

A tiny head and antennae started to come out ever so slowly. 

The man’s excitement knew no bounds.

He got his magnifying glasses and sat to watch the life and body of a pupa coming out.

He saw the struggle of the tender pupa and couldn’t resist his urge to “HELP”.

He went and got a tender forceps to help the egg break, a nip here, a nip there to help the struggling life and the pupa was out. 

The man was ecstatic!

He waited now each day for the pupa to grow and fly like a beautiful butterfly, but alas that never happened.

The larvae pupa had a oversized head and kept crawling along in the pot for the full 4 weeks and died!

Depressed the man went to his botanist friend and asked the reason. 

His friend told him the struggle to break out of the egg helps the larvae to send blood to its wings and the head push helps the head to remain small so that the tender wings can support it thru its 4 week life cycle. 

In his eagerness to help, the man destroyed a beautiful life!

Struggles help all of us, that’s why a bit of effort goes a long way to develop our strength to face life’s difficulties!

As parents, we sometimes go too far trying to help and protect our kids from life’s harsh realities and disappointments.

We don’t want our kids to struggle like we did.

Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Dan Kindlon says that over-protected children are more likely to struggle in relationships and 

with challenges.
We’re sending our kids the message that they’re not capable of helping themselves.
To quote clinical psychologist,

Dr. Wendy ‘s Moral:

“It  is  Our Job  to  prepare  Our  Children  for  the  Road & Not  prepare  the  Road for  Our Children”
