THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SPIN AND REALITY

(Posted by Frenchie)

An old philosophy professor of mine, used to joke that death was the great equalizer between rich and poor, meek and powerful.
He did not like the fact that I corrected him, in telling him that death on earth was just a passage on the way to eternal life. A form of temporary sleep. (he was a non-believer)
I even pushed the challenge, by telling him, how on that passage, not everyone had the same send off party, even though, ultimately he was right in saying it was a great equalizer.

This week, we buried an old mentor of mine Jean-Louis Cardinal Tauran, who left us after a long struggle with Parkinson disease. (see my article from last week)

Yesterday, he was led to rest back in Rome, and shall be buried at the Basilica of St Apollinare.

CASH AND CARRY!

"Cash n' Carry at the ol' seminary!"

Hey it rhymes!  But gotta get there early to scoop up what's left of the Kiko-art!

P.S. ADRIAN. I'M NOT DONE.

For years I was slandered, libeled, harassed, cursed, and condemned by Apuron, Adrian, Pius, and the Kiko's for pursuing the truth about Apuron's criminal transfer of the Yona Property to his Kiko buddies, with the charge being that I was looking to sell the property for my own profit. Well, look-ie here. My office didn't even get the listing. P.S. Adrian. I'm not done.

AMICUS MEUS IN PACE, ORA PRO NOBIS

(Posted by Frenchie)

A life long mentor, a great friend of the Catholic Church of Guam, a gentle soul, a great warrior for Christ, has lost his years long struggle with Parkinson. If suffering is a ticket to heaven, as my grandmother believed strongly, you should have a front row seat.

Jean Louis Cardinal Tauran has left us for a better world.

Please join me, in prayers for the rest of his soul. Jean Louis was a discreet and silent supporter of the
Guam Catholic Community.

POWER THROUGH RELIGION, OR POWER THROUGH POLITICS?

(Posted by Frenchie)

From their humble beginnings in the Madrid slums of the early 60s, Carmen and Francisco, have always pushed the same message: "Bringing back to the fold, the Catholics who had strayed away from the Church" and in doing so, protecting the family and continuing the tradition.
  Carmen, the rebellious daughter of a powerful family who backed Franco, knew well how to give all the right signals to potential powerful Catholic patrons.

Francisco, the wannabe successful artist, and fake leftist petit bourgeois, was the perfect public image for Carmen to advance her agenda.So they went on their merry way, using the powerful patronage of important prelates, first to move to Rome, then inside the Vatican walls, then close to the ears of John Paul II, capitalizing at every step, just as many flatterers and courtisans have done over the centuries in Europe.

Fast forward a few decades, and we find the amazing duo, leading the Italian movement "Family day" through their surrogate, the famous neurosurgeon, NCW member and advocate: Dr Massimo Gandolfini. At the same time Mario Pezzi the third corner of the NCW triangle, was publishing a long reflection on the family and children in the context of the Synods on the Family, where they had not been invited.

From these positions, one might infer that the NCW is another "reactionary" movement for the defense of the traditional family. Specially after the much decried ranting of Kiko at his June 20 2015  Family Day in San Giorgio  The reality is a lot more complex than this.
