Humanae Vitae, camino de santidad

Cardenal Robert Sarah

Prefecto de la Congregación para el Culto Divino y la Disciplina de los Sacramentos

Abadía de Santa Ana de Kergonan - 4 de agosto de 2018, En  el 50 aniversario de Humanae Vitae

 

Introducción

Hace exactamente 50 años, el Papa Pablo VI firmó su última y más importante Carta Encíclica, Humanae Vitae. Era el 25 de julio de 1968. Si situamos esta enseñanza del Beato Pablo VI en su contexto histórico, medimos qué coraje, qué gran fe en Dios y qué docilidad al Espíritu Santo, le tomó al Papa atreverse a tal acto. Mientras muchos teólogos, e incluso a veces incluso obispos lo instaban a poner a la Iglesia a raya del mundo y los medios, el Papa insistió en que la Iglesia no puede enseñar nada más que lo que ha recibido de la Iglesia. Cristo: la verdad revelada, que es el único camino de felicidad y santidad para los hombres. [1]

Entonces, a pesar de la tormenta que Humanae Vitae ha causado, podemos ver por nosotros mismos lo poderoso que estuvo presente el Espíritu Santo y con el apoyo de la función de Pedro: en medio de un mundo esclavizado y dominado por la perversión de la revolución sexual, abandonada y aislada por muchos cardenales, obispos y teólogos Pedro estaba solo y Pedro se mantuvo fuerte. Pablo VI no solo reafirmó la doctrina histórica y apostólica, sino que fue sobre todo inmensamente profético. Cincuenta años después de su publicación, esta enseñanza magisterial no solo revela su verdad inmutable, sino que también revela la clarividencia con la que se enfrentó el problema.

"También existe la preocupación de que el hombre que se acostumbra al uso de las prácticas anticonceptivas, eventualmente perderá el respeto a la mujer y, sin preocuparse por el equilibrio físico y psicológico de la misma, llegue a considerarla como un mero instrumento de disfrute egoísta, y ya no como su respetada y amada compañera.» (HV 17)

"No se necesita mucha experiencia para conocer la debilidad humana y comprender que los hombres -los jóvenes, especialmente, tan vulnerables en este punto- necesitan ser alentados para ser fieles a la ley moral, y que no se les debe ofrecer un medio fácil para evitar su observancia.» (HV 17)

"Pensemos también en el arma peligrosa que se pondría en manos de las autoridades públicas con poca preocupación por los requisitos morales". ¿Quién podrá culpar a un gobierno por aplicar a la solución de problemas comunitarios lo que se les permitiría a los cónyuges resolver un problema familiar? ¿Quién impedirá que los gobernantes favorezcan e incluso impongan a sus pueblos, si lo estiman necesario, el método anticonceptivo que estiman más efectivo? Y así los hombres, al querer evitar las dificultades individuales, familiares o sociales que nos encontramos en la observación de la ley divina, lograría dejar a la merced de la intervención de las autoridades públicas el sector más personal y el más reservado de intimidad conyugal» (HV 17)

 Pablo VI no pudo callar, la gracia del sucesor de Pedro le dio coraje para hablar con claridad y firmeza. No pudo hacer otra cosa porque se trata de Apocalipsis, el mensaje de Cristo. No podía callar porque lo que está en juego en la encíclica Humanae Vitae es, ni más ni menos, la santidad de las parejas cristianas.

I - Lucidez profética

Al resistir los medios y la presión mundana, Pablo VI realizó un acto profético. No solo porque, de alguna manera, anticipó los descubrimientos científicos más recientes sobre la nocividad de los anticonceptivos químicos para la salud humana. Pero mucho más profundamente porque al traer la luz de Dios a la vida conyugal, ha resaltado un camino de santidad.

Hoy, me gustaría resaltar este aspecto de la encíclica Humanae Vitae, leyéndolo nuevamente en particular a la luz de los grandes textos de San Juan Pablo II, que son su interpretación auténtica. Debemos darnos cuenta de que Humanae Vitae no es solo un documento disciplinario, una simple condena de la anticoncepción; mucho más profundamente, Humanae Vitae es una invitación a la santidad conyugal, a una forma de vivir la vida de una pareja y la responsabilidad de los padres según el plan de Dios.

En esto, Pablo VI es realmente como un profeta que invita al Pueblo de Dios a la conversión. Él nos invita, él los invita, hogares cristianos, a la comunión con Dios.

II - Un error de perspectiva

 El rechazo de Humanae Vitae, la desconfianza de esta enseñanza a menudo proviene de un error de perspectiva. A menudo se oye decir: " la regla de la Iglesia es dura " o "la Iglesia carece de misericordia" o "la regla es imposible de observar en los hechos."

Como si Pablo VI, al condenar la anticoncepción, hubiera decidido arbitrariamente lo permitido y lo prohibido. Este es un error fundamental! Pablo VI no tuvo "un buen día" y decidió prohibir la anticoncepción, por puro capricho o deseo de imponer una opinión personal. Fue después de cuatro largos años de estudio, reflexión, consulta, lectura de documentos científicos de calidad sobre el tema, después de haber rezado y entregado por completo al Espíritu Santo, y movido por el agudo sentido de su grave responsabilidad como padre y pastor ante Dios, ante la Iglesia y ante la humanidad, absolutamente fiel a su fe católica y dócil al duradero magisterio de la Iglesia, que Pablo VI tomó la decisión de explicar las circunstancias y razones que le movieron a recordar la firme enseñanza de la Iglesia.

Esto es lo que él mismo dice al presentar la Encíclica Humanae Vitae a la audiencia general del 31 de julio de 1968.

"Este documento pontificio no es solo la declaración de una ley moral negativa, es decir, la prohibición de cualquier acto que pretenda imposibilitar la procreación (n.14), sino que es sobre todo la presentación positiva de la moral conyugal, en relación con su misión de amor y fertilidad "en la visión integral del hombre y su vocación natural y terrenal, pero también sobrenatural y eterna" (n.7).

Este documento sigue siendo la aclaración de un capítulo fundamental de la vida personal, conyugal, familiar y social del hombre; pero no es la declaración completa de todo lo que se relaciona con el ser humano en el campo del matrimonio, de la familia, de la honestidad de los modales, un dominio inmenso sobre el cual el magisterio de la Iglesia puede y probablemente regrese, con un propósito más amplio, orgánico y sintético. Esta encíclica responde a preguntas, dudas, tendencias, sobre las cuales, como sabemos, la discusión ha sido bastante amplia y animada, en los últimos tiempos, y a la que hemos estado muy interesados, por nuestra función pastoral y doctrinal. No vamos a hablar ahora de este documento, en primer lugar debido a la delicadeza y la gravedad de su propósito, que parece ir más allá de la simplicidad de este discurso semanal, porque seguramente, no falta y no faltarán publicaciones que estarán a disposición de quienes estén interesados en el problema desarrollado en la Encíclica (por ejemplo: G. Martelet, amor conyugal y renovación conciliar ).

Solo diremos algunas palabras, no en el documento en sí, sino en los sentimientos que fueron nuestros durante este largo período de preparación.

Sentido de la responsabilidad de aclarar la verdad un problema complejo, difícil y serio

Nuestro primer sentimiento fue el de Nuestra grave responsabilidad. Nos llevó al corazón del tema y nos tuvo inmerso durante los cuatro años necesarios para el estudio y desarrollo de esta encíclica. Y podemos afirmar que este sentimiento de Nuestra responsabilidad no nos ha hecho sufrir poco espiritualmente. Nunca, como en esta situación, sentimos el peso de Nuestra carga. Estudiamos, leímos, discutimos tanto como pudimos, y también rezamos mucho. Ciertas circunstancias relacionadas con este problema son conocidas por usted: debemos responder a la Iglesia, a toda la humanidad; debíamos evaluar, con el compromiso, y al mismo tiempo, la libertad, de nuestro deber apostólico, una tradición no solo secular, sino reciente, de nuestros tres predecesores inmediatos; Nos vimos obligados a hacer nuestra la enseñanza del Consejo que nosotros mismos, promulgamos; Nos inclinamos a dar la bienvenida, hasta el límite donde parecíamos poder ir, las conclusiones -aunque de carácter consultivo- de la comisión instituida por el Papa Juan XXIII y ampliado por nosotros mismos, sin perder de vista nuestro deber de prudencia; Sabíamos de las controversias suscitadas por este problema tan importante, con tanta pasión pero también con tanta autoridad; Percibimos las voces poderosas de la opinión pública y la prensa; Oímos las voces más débiles, pero más penetrantes para Nuestro corazón de padre y pastor, de tantas personas, especialmente mujeres respetables, ansiosas por este problema difícil y por su experiencia aún más difícil; Leemos los informes científicos sobre los alarmantes problemas demográficos del mundo, respaldados por estudios de expertos y programas gubernamentales; Recibimos publicaciones de todos lados, algunas inspiradas en el examen de ciertos aspectos científicos del problema, otras por consideraciones realistas de muchas situaciones sociológicas serias, o por aquellas, tan imperativas hoy, de mutaciones que impregnan todos los sectores de la vida moderna.

¿Cuántas veces no nos hemos sentido abrumados por esta acumulación de documentos, y cuántas veces, humanamente hablando, no hemos entendido la insuficiencia de Nuestra pobre persona, frente a la formidable obligación apostólica a tener que pronunciarse sobre este problema; Cuán a menudo no hemos temblado ante este dilema de fácil condescendencia con las opiniones actuales, o de una sentencia mal tolerada por la sociedad moderna, o que es arbitrariamente demasiado grave para la vida conyugal.

Hemos confiado en muchas consultas especiales de personas de alto valor moral, científico y pastoral; e invocando al Espíritu Santo, ponemos nuestra conciencia en un estado de disponibilidad total y libre a la voz de la verdad, se trata de interpretar la regla divina que vemos emerger de la exigencia intrínseca del auténtico amor humano de estructuras esenciales de la institución del matrimonio, de la dignidad personal de los cónyuges, de su misión al servicio de la vida, de la santidad del matrimonio cristiano; Reflexionamos sobre los elementos estables de la doctrina tradicional y actual de la Iglesia, luego especialmente sobre las enseñanzas del Concilio reciente; sopesamos las consecuencias de una u otra decisión, y no tenemos dudas sobre Nuestro deber de pronunciar Nuestra oración en los términos expresados por esta encíclica."

¡Sí! Disponibilidad a la voz de la verdad, fidelidad a la doctrina tradicional y actual de la Iglesia, y sumisión humilde y filial a Dios que nos revela la verdad del amor, del ser humano y el significado del matrimonio.

Queridos amigos, queridos cónyuges, si vosotros, como cristianos, rechazáis la anticoncepción, no es antes que nada " porque la Iglesia lo prohíbe ". Es más bien porque tú sabes a través de la enseñanza de la Iglesia que la anticoncepción es intrínsecamente malvada, es decir, que destruye la verdad del amor y la relación humana. Reduce a la mujer a ser un objeto de placer y disfrute siempre disponible en todo momento y en todas las circunstancias para el impulso sexual del hombre.

Eso me parece muy importante. El principio de la moral cristiana no es el respeto por un deber impuesto externamente y pasivamente sufrido, sino el amor al bien, a la verdad del ser.

Pablo VI por la encíclica Humanae Vitae primero buscó contemplar la verdad del ser humano sexuado y la pareja humana. Buscó descubrir el diseño que el Creador ha inscrito en la naturaleza del hombre y la mujer. Pablo VI buscó hacernos descubrir el bien hacia el cual esta naturaleza profunda nos hace esforzarnos. Él buscó hacernos desear el bien sobrenatural, es decir, la santidad a la que Dios llama a las parejas a través de su vida conyugal.

III - Una verdad según la razón y confirmada por Apocalipsis

 Debe resaltarse que esta verdad del amor humano es accesible a la razón humana. Juan Pablo II recordó y la afirmación de que "cualquier acto conyugal por sí mismo permanece abierto a la transmisión de la vida" (HV 11), describe la "verdad ontológica", la "estructura íntima," la "estructura real" [2] del acto conyugal, por lo tanto, es sobre todo una afirmación de acuerdo con la razón humana, accesible a todo hombre que busca la verdad" [3] .

Esta razonabilidad es el fundamento de la afirmación de Pablo VI y Juan Pablo II: "Los estándares morales de Humanae Vitae son parte de la ley natural. Todo hombre de buena voluntad puede sentir y descubrir que una actitud anticonceptiva es contraria a la verdad humana del amor conyugal " [4] .

Pero debemos ir mucho más allá. De hecho, San Juan Pablo II afirma firmemente que la norma moral formulada en Humanae Vitae es parte de la Revelación divina. Porque la Iglesia enseña este estándar a pesar de que no se expresa formalmente (es decir, literalmente) en las Sagradas Escrituras; lo hace en la creencia de que la interpretación de la ley natural es la competencia del Magisterio. Sin embargo, podemos decir más. Incluso si la norma moral, tal como está formulada en la Encíclica Humanae Vitae, No se encuentra, literalmente, en la Sagrada Escritura, sin embargo, debido a que está contenida en la tradición y - en las palabras de Pablo VI - que estaba "repetidamente expuesta a los fieles por el Magisterio (HV 12), se deduce que esta norma corresponde a la totalidad de la doctrina revelada contenida en las fuentes bíblicas (HV 4).

Tal afirmación es crucial para comprender el error de todos los que piden un "cambio de disciplina", de todos aquellos que dicen "la Iglesia es demasiado dura" o "la Iglesia debe adaptarse". A través de la Encíclica Humanae Vitae, la Iglesia solo transmite lo que ella recibió del mismo Dios. Ella no, nunca tendrá el poder de cambiar nada. La norma moral de Humanae Vitae "pertenece no solo a la ley moral natural, sino también al orden moral que Dios ha revelado: desde este punto de vista también, no podría ser diferente sino solo y solo según lo transmitido por el la Tradición y el Magisterio" [5] .

Por lo tanto, podemos decir que Dios mismo se ocupó de revelarnos los caminos de la felicidad y el bien para la pareja humana.

Aceptar la Humanae Vitae, no es solo una cuestión de sumisión y de obediencia al Papa, sino principalmente escuchar y acoger la Palabra de Dios, la amable revelación de lo que somos y de lo que tenemos que hacer para corresponder a su amor. La apuesta es, de hecho, la de nuestra vida teológica, de nuestra vida de relación con Dios. Cardenales, obispos y teólogos que rechazaron la Humanae Vitae e incitaron a los fieles a rebelarse contra la Encíclica, se opusieron, por tanto, deliberada y públicamente en contra de Dios mismo. Lo más grave es que invitaron a los fieles a oponerse a Dios.

IV - Tres errores

Estos recordatorios nos permitirán descartar tres errores sobre Humanae Vitae .

- El primer error es con los fieles y los cónyuges en particular. Algunos pueden sentir que la Iglesia les impone un peso insoportable, una carga demasiado pesada que afectaría su libertad.

Queridos amigos, ¡una idea así está mal! La Iglesia solo transmite la verdad recibida de Dios y conocida por la Razón. ¡Ahora, solo hay una verdad que hace libre! Queridos amigos, queridas parejas que viven de esta verdad, ¡debéis testificar a los demás! ¡vosotros también debéis ser profetas! Debe decirse que el rechazo de las prácticas anticonceptivas y la mentalidad libera a la pareja del peso del egoísmo. ¡Una vida según la verdad de la sexualidad humana libera el miedo! Libera las energías del amor, ¡la hace feliz ! ¡Tú que lo vives, dilo! ¡Escríbelo! Testifica! ¡Es vuestra misión de laicos! ¡La Iglesia cuenta contigo, te confía esta misión!

Por lo tanto, debe dar testimonio del hecho de que la encíclica Humanae Vitae no debería recibirse con una obediencia que sería solo material. Debe ser recibido con inteligencia y con el consentimiento del corazón. La inteligencia debe apropiarse de la verdad que se contempla y se revela. El corazón debe desear el bien propuesto a nuestro amor.

Recibir Humanae Vitae no significa, material y sistemáticamente, "tener muchos hijos". ¡No! Simplemente significa abrirse de manera generosa y amplia a la vida y recibir a tantos niños como su salud, su amor y sus medios lo permitan, en un profundo sentido de gratitud hacia Dios. Aceptar Humanae Vitaees es entrar en la naturaleza profunda del amor humano y, por lo tanto, participar en un enfoque de paternidad-maternidad responsable que, aunque rechaza cualquier práctica anticonceptiva, sabe cómo abrir a la pareja a una bienvenida generosa e inteligente de la vida, no a toda costa, sino de acuerdo con las capacidades de cada pareja. Sabiendo a veces, si las circunstancias justificadas lo requieren, espaciar los nacimientos utilizando la alternancia de los períodos de fertilidad. Siempre para proteger mejor el amor conyugal y familiar.

- El segundo error que debe evitarse es entre teólogos y moralistas. Me gustaría abordar aquí, con fuerza, las mismas palabras de Jesús: "¡Cuidado con los falsos profetas! Vienen a disfrazarlos como corderos, ¡pero por dentro son lobos rapaces! "(Mt 7, 15) 'Estas personas, dice St. Pablo, son falsos apóstoles, falsificadores, disfrazados de apóstoles de Cristo; nada sorprendente en esto: el mismo Satanás se camufla de ángel de luz... Pero su fin será conforme a sus obras "(2 Corintios 7: 13-15) Sí, cuidado con aquellos que les dicen que mientras la intención general de la pareja es correcta, las circunstancias podrían justificar la elección de los medios anticonceptivos. Queridos amigos, ¡esas palabras son mentiras! Y aquellos que os enseñan tales aberraciones "falsifican la Palabra de Dios" (2 Cor 4: 2). No hablan en el nombre de Dios. Hablan en contra de Dios y las enseñanzas de Jesús. Son como las serpientes ardientes del libro de Números, cuya mordida se destruye. No prestes atención a ninguna de sus palabras. Todos los que son mordidos por las serpientes de la confusión doctrinal y moral tienen que hacer solo una cosa: imitar al pueblo de Israel: corriendo hacia la salvación, mirando fijamente a la serpiente de bronce, Jesucristo, suspendido en el estandarte de la Cruz, para que permanezcan vivos (cf Nb 21, 4-9). ¡Sí, mira a Jesús, escúchalo y obedécele solo a Él! ¡Él es el único Maestro!

Cuando les decimos: hay situaciones concretas que pueden justificar el uso de anticonceptivos, ¡les mentimos! ¡Estás predicando una doctrina adulterada (cf. 2 Cor 2:17) ! ¡Además, eres herido porque te dicen un camino que no conduce ni a la felicidad ni a la santidad!

A este respecto, Juan Pablo II pudo decir que "cuando las situaciones concretas se oponen a lo que prescribe la ley moral, es porque en el fondo ya no creemos que la ley de Dios sea el único bien verdadero del hombre " [6] .

¿Cómo se puede afirmar que "en ciertas situaciones" una actitud que contradiga la verdad profunda del amor humano se haría buena o necesaria? ¡Es imposible! Sin embargo, "hay quienes se atreven a brindar soluciones deshonestas a estos problemas e incluso a quienes no se apartan del asesinato. Pero la Iglesia recuerda que no puede haber una contradicción real entre las leyes divinas que rigen la transmisión de la vida y las que promueven el amor conyugal auténtico (véase GS 51, §2). ¡Sí! La plenitud de la felicidad conyugal siempre implica el respeto por la naturaleza profunda de la sexualidad y, por lo tanto, su apertura a la vida. La anticoncepción es siempre un mal moral porque siempre destruye el amor de los cónyuges. ¡Les duele y les hace daño!

No puede haber conflicto de obligaciones aquí. El bien de la pareja siempre pasa por una vida según su naturaleza profunda, según su ser. "Las circunstancias o intenciones nunca pueden transformar un acto intrínsecamente deshonesto por su objeto en un acto" subjetivamente "honesto o defendible como una elección" [7] .

Por lo tanto, no hay ninguna situación en la que el estándar sea imposible de realizar. De hecho, esto implicaría que el Creador se contradice a sí mismo y nos pide que vayamos en contra de la orden sabia que Él mismo inscribió en la Creación.

Existe, dice Juan Pablo II, un fuerte desafío pastoral. "El hecho de que la ley debe ser una realización posible pertenece a la naturaleza misma de la ley (...) Que la norma es alcanzable pertenece al campo práctico y pastoral" [8]. Además, es incorrecto oponer la verdad de la ley a los logros prácticos contrarios. Uno nunca debe oponerse a la verdad pastoral y universal práctica de la ley moral. El cuidado pastoral concreto siempre busca los medios más apropiados para cumplir la educación universal, nunca derogarla.

Como dice San Juan Pablo II al hablar sobre anticoncepción "Ninguna circunstancia personal o social ha podido, puede y puede justificar tal acto" [9]. " No es una doctrina inventada por el hombre: ha sido inscrita por la mano creadora de Dios en la naturaleza misma de la persona humana y ha sido confirmada por él en revelación " [10] .

- El tercer error para evitar se encuentra en pastores: sacerdotes y obispos.

Queridos hermanos sacerdotes, a veces tratamos de hacernos sentir culpables al acusarnos de cargar a otros con la carga que no soportamos nosotros mismos. No se deje intimidar: obedezca a Dios en lugar de a los hombres. Si verdaderamente Humanae Vitae es la carta de una vida matrimonial conducida de acuerdo con la verdad profunda de la sexualidad humana, ¡entonces no impondremos ninguna carga! Por el contrario, al predicar Humanae Vitae, ¡anunciamos las buenas nuevas! ¡Anunciamos la santidad matrimonial! ¿Cómo podrían nuestros corazones de sacerdotes privar a las almas de esta forma real de santidad conyugal? ¿Cómo podríamos proponer una forma de santidad "con descuento", sin terminar? ¡No!

Como Pablo VI, "No menoscabar en nada la saludable doctrina de Cristo es una forma de caridad eminente hacia las almas" [11] y se dirigió a los obispos, el Beato Papa continúa: "El trabajo con ardor y sin descanso para la salvaguardia y la santidad del matrimonio, para que siempre se viva en toda su plenitud humana y cristiana, considera esta misión como una de tus responsabilidades más urgentes en el tiempo presente " [12] .

Queridos hermanos sacerdotes, proclamar las buenas nuevas del Evangelio sobre la sexualidad y el matrimonio es abrir a las parejas el camino hacia una vida feliz y santa. ¡Es nuestro deber como padres, guías, pastores!

Por nuestra parte, "los silencios, las incertidumbres o las ambigüedades a este respecto tienen el efecto de velar la verdad humana y cristiana del amor conyugal" [13]. Para el amor paternal a los cónyuges, para el celo misionero, para la generosidad en la evangelización, no temamos predicar y anunciar estas buenas nuevas. Aunque debemos sufrir ataques, desprecios, soledad y burlas, proclamemos la verdad del Evangelio. Pablo VI nos mostró por su encíclica un bello ejemplo de caridad pastoral, ¡no tengas miedo de imitarlo! Nuestro silencio sería cómplice y culpable. ¡No abandonemos a las parejas a las engañosas sirenas de la facilidad!Tened en cuenta también que nuestro celibato es una garantía de credibilidad. Si vivimos en la verdad la alegría de una vida entregada en total continencia por el reino de los cielos (cf. Mt 19, 12), podemos predicar la alegría de la vida conyugal dado en la fertilidad del responsable y la generosidad continencia periódica cuando sea necesario.

Por supuesto, la mayoría propone que nos fuerza la verdad más vamos a apoyar a las personas con "la paciencia y la bondad" [14], tal como el Señor que era intransigente con el mal y compasivo con la gente. "Pero la misericordia sin verdad n no existe porque Dios es la Verdad!

V - Un camino de santidad para las parejas

Si se descartan estos tres errores, podemos profundizar en cuál es el camino de santidad descrito por Humanae Vitae.

En primer lugar, me gustaría señalar que el fundamento de toda santidad es encontrar el amor de Dios. Pero el que ama quiere lo que quiere el amado. Amar a Dios es querer lo que quiere. En la cumbre del misticismo, hablamos de la unión de voluntades o la comunión de voluntades. Por lo tanto, es importante comenzar buscando la voluntad de Dios. Debemos descifrar el propósito que el Creador ha inscrito en nuestra naturaleza como hombre y mujer, en la naturaleza de la pareja y la relación conyugal. Esto es precisamente lo que dice Benedicto XVI cuando dice: "La naturaleza es la expresión de un plan de amor y verdad. Nos precede y Dios nos lo ha dado como un ambiente viviente. Ella nos cuenta sobre el Creador (ver Rm 1:20) y su amor por la humanidad. (...) Sin embargo, este entorno natural no es solo un material del que podemos disponer como nos plazca, sino que es el trabajo admirable del Creador, que lleva en sí mismo una "gramática " que indica una finalidad y criterios para los cuales se usa sabiamente y no se usa arbitrariamente. (ver Caritas in veritate 48) .

Esta obra de sabiduría para comprender el designio divino, la voluntad inscrita por Dios en el orden de las cosas, fue iniciada por Pablo VI y magníficamente amplificada por San Juan Pablo II. Abre para los cónyuges el camino de una espiritualidad de comunión con el proyecto del Creador. Pablo VI alienta a las parejas a "conformar su conducta a las intenciones creativas de Dios " [15]. En este deseo de casarse con la intención creativa hay una verdadera forma de unión teológica con Dios al mismo tiempo que la autorrealización. Es verdaderamente amoroso a Dios amar lo que su sabiduría ha inscrito en mi naturaleza. Y eso abre a un amor propio justo y realista. De hecho, como dice Benedicto XVI, "Vivimos rectamente si vivimos de acuerdo con la verdad de nuestro ser, es decir, de acuerdo con la voluntad de Dios. Porque la voluntad de Dios no constituye para el hombre una ley impuesta desde fuera, que lo fuerza, sino la medida intrínseca de su naturaleza, una medida que está inscrita en él y lo convierte en la imagen de Dios, y por lo tanto, una criatura libre. Si vivimos contra el Amor y contra la Verdad, contra Dios, entonces nos destruimos unos a otros y destruimos el mundo. Entonces no encontramos vida, pero jugamos el juego de la muerte. Todo esto se cuenta a través de imágenes inmortales en la historia de la caída original y el hombre expulsado del paraíso terrenal." [16]

Uno podría encontrar aquí una aplicación profunda y mística de lo que el Papa Francisco llama "conversión ecológica". De hecho, estamos invitados a renunciar a una concepción según la cual el hombre debe tener a la naturaleza e incluso su propia naturaleza, en una lógica de dominación y manipulación por la técnica [17]. ¿Por qué quiere cambiar su naturaleza, por qué violarlo manipulándolo? No tenemos que mutilarnos para realizarnos de acuerdo con nuestros sentimientos o tendencias y de forma diferente a lo que Dios nos ha hecho. Él nos creó a su imagen y semejanza, hombre y mujer, Él nos creó (cf Gn 1:27). Nos destruimos a nosotros mismos si queremos negar o negarnos a nacer hombre o mujer al decidir mutilar nuestra naturaleza de hombre o mujer. Por el contrario, debemos entrar en una lógica de recepción de la naturaleza, de nuestra propia naturaleza, como un regalo, un regalo gratuito del Creador que nos revela algunas tramas de su infinita sabiduría. Por lo tanto, no tenemos que dominar o manipular arbitrariamente la naturaleza, nuestra propia naturaleza, sino, como dice el Papa Francisco, "acompañarla, inclinarse a las posibilidades que ofrece". Para recibir lo que la realidad natural permite a sí misma, como tendiendo la mano"[18]. Porque a través de nuestra naturaleza, el que nos alcanza y se revela a sí mismo, es el autor de la naturaleza: el Creador.

Como San Juan Pablo II: "El carácter virtuoso de la conducta que se expresa en la regulación" natural "de la fertilidad no se basa tanto en la lealtad a una "ley natural" impersonal, sino más bien la persona del creador origen y Señor del orden que se manifiesta en esta ley " [19]. Al someterle nuestra inteligencia y nuestro corazón, realmente entramos en una comunión de intención con él.

 Esto nos permite clarificar aún más la realidad de este camino de santidad destacada por Humanae Vitae. No se trata solo de respetar materialmente un orden biológico, sino de conformar toda la vida al orden de la Creación. El orden biológico, el ciclo de la fertilidad, es "la expresión del orden de la naturaleza, es decir, el plan providencial del Creador, en la fiel ejecución de las cuales depende el verdadero bien de la persona humano " [20]. Pero este plan del Creador no se reduce a la regularidad biológica. La fidelidad al orden de la Creación incluye mucho más. La fidelidad al plan de Dios implica el ejercicio de una paternidad-maternidad responsable que se expresa a través del uso inteligente del ritmo de la fertilidad. Supone una colaboración entre los cónyuges, una comunicación, opciones comunes y libres, planteadas en conciencia, iluminadas por la gracia y la oración perseverante, fundadas en una verdadera generosidad, para decidir si dar la vida, o, por solo motivos" [21] para posponer un nacimiento, presupone verdadera caridad conyugal, verdadera templanza y autocontrol, especialmente si las uniones conyugales deben limitarse a períodos infértiles. En resumen, ¡es todo un arte de vivir, de una espiritualidad, de un modo estrictamente marital de santidad!

Como ya se señaló, Pablo VI "esta disciplina... trae a la vida familiar los frutos de la serenidad y la paz, y facilita la solución de otros problemas, promueve la atención hacia el otro cónyuge, ayuda a los cónyuges a desterrar el egoísmo, un enemigo del amor verdadero, y profundizar su sentido de la responsabilidad ". (HV 21).

VI - Un arte de vivir

Subrayar este aspecto hace que sea posible impedir un equívoco. A veces hablamos de "métodos naturales de control de la natalidad". Muchas personas creen que estos métodos son "naturales" porque no usan un proceso químico o mecánico artificial. Eso no correcto.

Como subraya Juan Pablo II, "la reducción a la única regularidad biológica, separada del "orden de la naturaleza", es decir, del "plan del Creador" es una distorsión del pensamiento auténtico del encíclica Humanae Vitae " [22]. Pero aún más, continúa este santo Papa, que podría llamarse el Doctor de la santidad conyugal, "la calificación de "natural" que se atribuye a la regulación moralmente correcta de la fertilidad (según el ritmo natural) se explica porque ajustarse a ella corresponde a la verdad de la persona y, por lo tanto, a su dignidad: una dignidad que "naturalmente" retorna al hombre como un ser razonable y libre. Siendo razonable y libre, el hombre puede y debe examinar con conocimiento este ritmo biológico que pertenece al orden natural. Puede y debe ajustarse a ella para ejercer esa paternidad-maternidad responsable que, de acuerdo con el plan del Creador, está inscrita en el orden natural de la fertilidad humana" [23] .

En lugar de "método natural", debemos hablar de un ejercicio de fertilidad de acuerdo con la naturaleza humana. Esto implica una "madurez en el amor, que no es inmediata, sino que tiene un diálogo, la escucha mutua y un control singular del impulso sexual en un camino de crecimiento en la virtud", dice Benedicto XVI. Por lo tanto, uno no puede hablar de la vida según el orden de la naturaleza, de acuerdo con el diseño creativo solo si un método natural de regulación del nacimiento se vive en un contexto de virtudes conyugales propias.

"A menudo, el método, separado de la dimensión ética de su propia, se lleva a cabo de manera puramente funcional, e incluso la utilidad. Si uno se separa el método natural de su dimensión ética, dejamos de percibir la diferencia que existe entre él y otros métodos y medios artificiales, y llegamos a hablar de ello como si fuera simplemente otra forma de anticoncepción " [24]. El Cardenal López-Trujillo habló sobre métodos naturales que se convierten en "contracepciones ecológicas" [25] porque se usan en una mentalidad hedonista, cerrada a la recepción de la vida.

Por el contrario, utilizado en el espíritu de una vida de acuerdo con el diseño creativo, un método natural abre a los cónyuges las virtudes propias de la vida conyugal. Abre la puerta a la plena libertad interior en la entrega de uno mismo. "La forma correcta de escuchar y practicar la continencia periódica como una virtud también esencialmente decide sobre la" naturalidad "del método... Por lo tanto, no se puede pensar en una aplicación mecánica de las leyes biológicas. El conocimiento de los ritmos de la fertilidad, incluso si es indispensable, todavía no crea esa libertad interna del don que es de naturaleza explícitamente espiritual y depende del grado de madurez del hombre interior". [26]

En otras palabras: los métodos naturales son una base, pero suponen que se viven en un contexto de virtudes. Pueden constituir una puerta, una pedagogía para el descubrimiento de esta vida conyugal plena, pero también pueden ser vividos solo materialmente sin este contexto de responsabilidad, de generosidad, de caridad que les es connatural.

VII - Entrar a la adoración

Debemos ir más allá y afirmar que, al final, los métodos naturales abren el camino y requieren una verdadera espiritualidad conyugal. Esta espiritualidad, esta vida de relación con Dios encuentra su total realización bajo la influencia especial de un don del Espíritu Santo: el don de la Piedad. La piedad es este regalo que nos hace recibir todo de parte de Dios como de un Padre, con respeto y gratitud. Juan Pablo II enfatiza que no podemos entender completamente "el verdadero significado nupcial de todas las manifestaciones de afecto que constituyen el tejido de la persistencia de la unión conyugal ... sin esta comprensión espiritual que es el fruto fundamental de un don del Espíritu que hace que la persona respete el trabajo de Dios" [27] .

Sí, tienes que ir tan lejos. Comprender el diseño del Creador, recibirlo con el corazón, supone esta profunda actitud espiritual de reconocimiento y adoración, que es un don del Espíritu Santo. En palabras de Juan Pablo II, "el respeto por la obra de Dios ayuda a asegurar que el acto conyugal no se devalúe y se prive de la interioridad, que no se convierta en un" hábito ", y que habla plenitud adecuada de contenido personal (...), sino también de contenido religioso, es decir, la veneración por la grandeza del Creador, único y depósito final de la fuente de la vida " [28 ]. En verdad, es la punta de lo que está en juego en Humanae Vitae.

Al recibir con gratitud el orden natural, tratando de comprender, amar, no sólo a los cónyuges prosperan en su amor a las virtudes que fortalecen su amor mutuo, pero aún más, que están abiertos a la adoración contemplativa creador. Humanae Vitae abre un camino de santidad matrimonial, una pedagogía de adoración, la recepción filial y adoradora del plan divino. Dios mismo es tan amado como un Padre, sus dones son recibidos con gratitud y veneración. Su benevolente majestad es experimentado por los cónyuges.

Se comprende por qué Juan Pablo II pudo afirmar que "rechazar las enseñanzas de la Humanae Vitae es estar poniendo en tela de juicio la idea misma de la santidad de Dios (...) Por estas normas morales son simplemente los requisitos, incluyendo cualquier circunstancia no puede prescindir de la santidad de Dios en la que cada persona humana participa concretamente " [29].

Afirmar que las normas de Humanae Vitae no siempre serían aplicables sería negar la ordenación de todos a la santidad, a la comunión con el Dios, tres veces santo.

VIII - El camino real de la cruz

San Juan Pablo II agrega que negarse a Humanae Vitae " sería hacer vana la Cruz de Cristo. Porque la palabra al encarnar entrado de lleno en nuestra vida cotidiana, que se extiende a través de acciones concretas, que murió por nuestros pecados, nos vuelve a crear en la santidad original, que debe expresarse en nuestra actividad diaria " [30]. Sí, es por la Cruz que somos lavados de nuestros pecados. La cruz es el camino para ir a la santidad de Dios. "No es extraño entonces que el sacramento del matrimonio comprometa a los cónyuges en un camino donde se encontrarán con la Cruz " [31]. Tu amor conyugal debe ser como el amor de Jesús, y el amor de Jesús es un amor que va hasta el final del amor, hasta la muerte en la Cruz. De hecho, ir al final del amor es morir por los que amamos. Para eso es imposible entrar al Amor sin entrar en el sufrimiento, sin morir como Cristo. Porque Dios nos ha predestinado a reproducir la imagen de su Hijo, Jesús, para que él sea el Anciano de una multitud de hermanos (Rom 8:29).

 Sí, queridos amigos, queridos maridos, no les predico de la manera fácil. ¡Te anuncio a Jesús, y Jesús crucificado! Queridos cónyuges, los invito a entrar en este camino real de santidad matrimonial. Hay días en que no será sin heroísmo de vuestra parte. Hay días en que estarás en camino hacia la Cruz. Pienso en "la cruz de aquellos cuya lealtad despierta la burla, la ironía e incluso persecuciones" [32], cruz de preocupaciones materiales producidos por la generosidad al acoger la vida, cruz en las dificultades en la vida de la pareja, cruz de la continencia y de la espera de los periodos.

Queridos amigos, si les dijera otra cosa, les mentiría, ¡los traicionaría! No sería ya un ministro de Dios para guiaros al bien (Rom 13, 4) ni mensajero de su Palabra.

La felicidad, la alegría perfecta de vuestras parejas pasa por ahí. Sé que esto no viene sin sacrificio, pero " cada vez que se repiten los intentos de un cristianismo sin sacrificio, un cristianismo líquido, de agua de rosas, están condenadas al fracaso" [33]. El Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica lo expresa con contundencia: "Es en el seguimiento de Cristo, en la renuncia a sí mismos, en la toma de su cruz, donde los cónyuges pueden "comprender" el significado original del matrimonio y vivirlo con la ayuda de Cristo Esta gracia del matrimonio cristiano es un fruto de la Cruz de Cristo, fuente de toda la vida cristiana " [34]. No podemos economizarnos la Cruz. El Calvario es el punto desde el cual podemos ver todo con los ojos de Cristo y, por lo tanto, comprender lo que es el verdadero amor. Además, como recordó Juan Pablo II, "los cónyuges suponen para toda la Iglesia el recordatorio permanente de lo que sucedió en la Cruz."[35] Esta es la razón por hogares cristianos son lugares de alegría y felicidad. Porque lo que sucedió en la Cruz es al mismo tiempo la plenitud del sufrimiento y la victoria sobre la muerte, el sacrificio perfecto y la mayor alegría, la consecuencia del pecado yla consumación de la santidad. La familia es un lugar de inmensa felicidad porque es un lugar de amor, por lo tanto, un lugar en el centro del cual se alza la Cruz, la fuente de todo amor.

Hablando del sacramento del matrimonio, San Pablo exclama: "¡Este misterio es grande, se aplica a Cristo y a la Iglesia! (Efesios V, 31)” Queridos cónyuges cristianos, la Iglesia os confía un tesoro inmenso: os pide que seáis testigos del mismo amor con el que Jesús ama a la humanidad. Sí, amaos "como Cristo amó a la Iglesia: ¡Él se entregó por ella! (Ef V, 25) Es vuestra misión, vuestra vocación: ¡amar como Cristo, hasta la misma Cruz! Vuestra misión es hermosa! ¡Gracias por estar en medio de nosotros! ¡Gracias, queridas familias, por el testimonio que dais con vuestra alegría y felicidad! La sonrisa en los rostros de vuestros hijos es la mejor forma de presenciar vuestra felicidad. ¡Sois las más hermosas joyas de la corona de la Iglesia! ¡Sois el futuro de la Iglesia y de vuestro país! ¡La Iglesia os ama!

Os agradezco vuestra atención y vuestra paciencia al escucharme. Y con vosotros agradezco a Dios Padre Todopoderoso por darnos al Papa Pablo VI en un momento crucial de nuestra historia, y por iluminarlo y sostenerlo. Dios es siempre fiel incluso cuando una gran parte de la jerarquía de su Iglesia le es infiel y se destaca en la confusión y el desorden por los beneficios humanos. En las palabras de Benedicto XVI con motivo del 40º aniversario de la Humanae Vitae, ya hace diez años: " Lo que era verdad ayer también es cierto hoy en día. La verdad expresada en Humanae Vitae no cambia. ¡Que Dios proteja a la Iglesia y que la Iglesia proteja a las familias y al mundo!

[1] Los cardenales y obispos, desafortunadamente, se organizaron para oponerse radical y públicamente a la encíclica Humanae Vitae. Primero, la Conferencia Episcopal Belga, dirigida por el Cardenal Primado Leo Suenens, publicó el 30 de agosto de 1968 una Declaración del Episcopado belga sobre la Encíclica Humanae Vitae para expresar su oposición.

A continuación, un grupo más amplio de Cardenales opuesto a la Encíclica Humanae Vitae, constituida por los cardenales Suenens Alfrink, Heenan, Döpfner y König. Se reúnen en Essen para decidir su oposición a la Humanae Vitae 9 de septiembre de 1968, durante la Katholikentag d’Essen, en presencia del legado papal, el cardenal Gustavo Testa. Una abrumadora mayoría votó una resolución para revisar la Encíclica.

El 30 de julio de 1968, bajo el título "Contra la Encíclica del Papa Pablo VI", el New York Times emitió un llamamiento firmado por más de 200 teólogos que instaron a los católicos a desobedecer la Encíclica de Pablo VI. Esta declaración, también conocida como la "Declaración de Curran" (Charles Curran, teólogo de la Universidad Católica de América), era algo que nunca se había visto en toda la historia de la Iglesia.

En 1969, nueve obispos holandeses, incluido el cardenal Alfrink, votaron a favor de la llamada Declaración de Independencia, invitando a los fieles a rechazar la enseñanza de Humanae Vitae.

"En 1968", rememora el cardenal Francis J. Stafford, "algo terrible sucedió en la Iglesia. En el Sacerdocio Ministerial, entre los amigos, surgen fracturas en todas partes, que nunca sanarían; estas heridas continúan afligiendo a toda la Iglesia. Pablo VI estuvo casi traumatizado por el conflicto que surgió de algunos de los personajes principales del Concilio que estaban más cerca de él. El 7 de diciembre de 1968, en un discurso al Seminario Lombardo, incluso habló de "la autodestrucción de la Iglesia", un proceso que sacudió y destruyó la Iglesia desde dentro. Esta "autodestrucción de la Iglesia" continúa. Está dirigido por miembros prominentes de la jerarquía y el clero.

China’s retaliatory tariffs are no good for Washington farmers: The farmers are anxious. More than $480 million worth of Washington agricultural exports are impacted by Chinese tariffs, reports KING 5. China struck back against Trump’s latest tariffs. It slapped $16 million of tariffs on American goods.

New Yorker sued by WA AG for fake charities: This guy, a New York stockbroker, is heavily involved with organized crime. He’s being sued by Washington State attorney general Bob Ferguson for setting up six fake charities. He’s allegedly done this same thing in eight other states. He hasn’t been charged criminally in Washington State, reports the Seattle Times.

What the fuck is going on between Canada and Saudi Arabia? Good question, glad you asked. The two are in some sort of a human-rights tiff. Canada’s ambassador rebuked Saudi Arabia for arresting human-rights and women’s-rights activists. Saudi Arabia clapped back immediately and expelled the ambassador, giving him 24 hours to get his ugly, yella, no-good keister off its property. Then, Saudi Arabia announced it was canceling all flights to and from Toronto. Now it’s barring all of its citizens from receiving treatment in Canadian hospitals. Saudi Arabia has put Canada’s human-rights policies on blast. Meanwhile, they executed a man by crucifixion today. The worst part? The United States says it’s caught in the middle of this quarrel between its two allies. Doesn’t seem like too hard of a choice here, America.

Durkan loves the Showbox too! But will she act? She’s sending representatives to talk with a real-estate developer about the future of the venue today. She’s not ready to support Council Member Kshama Sawant’s legislation to expand the Pike Place Historic District to cover the Showbox. This extension would include other businesses other than the Showbox, such as a restaurant and a strip club.

Attack the fire from the air: Washington firefighting crews are finding quick successes by utilizing aircraft. According to the Washington Department of Natural Resources, there have been 830 fires so far on the land it oversees. A typical fire season averages 817 fires, according to KING 5. Crews have been knocking out these fires with their “Huey Helicopters, along with eight single-engine Fire Boss aircraft.”

BREAKING: We’re all too familiar with how initial reports like these play out.


Election night breakdown: What do you mean you weren’t keeping up with SECB all night? Yeah, there’s a lot to read, but we had a lot to say. The short list: We got banned from the GOP election night party (but then got let in), Dino Rossi won, Joey Gibson lost, the Washington version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t manage to make it through to the next round, and we had to listen to Coldplay on our Uber ride home. There’s probably more. Why don’t you take the morning and catch up?

Election nights outside Washington: It’s still too close to call in the Kansas Republican Primary — a mere 191 votes separate the candidates. This is why voting matters! The Ohio special election is also too close to call. The Republican candidate, Troy Balderson, had a lead of 1,754 votes as of this morning but there are still more than 3,000 ballots yet to be counted. It’s heated!

The Seattle Times write-up about the Automated Fingerprint Identification System levy omits one small detail: That it isn’t just about fingerprint identification. Nah, sorry, voters ignorantly (an assumption) voted to give the Seattle Police Department facial recognition technology. Everything will be fine, right? The police having a database full of our scanned faces can’t possibly be bad… can it?

Don’t get my hopes up, National Weather Service: I am currently sweating in a Capitol Hill Starbucks. It isn’t even 6:30 a.m. yet. Someone was already arrested in here this morning. That’s not about the heat, but it’s been a day already. The good news is that there’s apparently a significant cool down on the way. Maybe even light showers? I won’t believe it until I see it.


But... it's not the end of the week yet, is it? Beat the hump day slump, beat the heat.

Amazon continues to thrive off our thirst for convenience: It’s steadily introducing drive-up grocery pick-up at Whole Foods locations.

Additionally, only Prime Now members will be saved in the Rapture.

New York Republican charged with insider trading: Representative Chris Collins, an outspoken Trump supporter, is having a rough day. Looks like there may be another seat open for the blue wave to scoop up.


Everyone bands together to ban Alex Jones — except Twitter: Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO, says Alex Jones, notorious conspiracy theorist and flagrant asshole, hasn’t violated Twitter’s rules. YouTube, Facebook, Spotify, and Apple have already banned Jones. This just confirms that Twitter truly is the cesspool we love to hate and cannot bear to stop using.

Maryland man goes to take driving test, forgets about all the drug-dealing paraphernalia in the car: The man, 22, was just trying to get his driver’s license. Nerves must’ve gotten to him — trust me, they got to me like two times during the, uh, two driver’s tests I took — because he forgot about the pound of marijuana in the car. He also forgot about the loaded Glock and the $15,000 in drug-related money. He didn’t get his license. He did get arrested, though.

          Lawyer Says Film '15:17 To Paris' Would Prejudice Train Attack Jury      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A lawyer for the accused gunman in a 2015 terrorist attack aboard a Paris-bound train is asking to halt the release of a new Clint Eastwood film depicting how three American tourists thwarted the assault. Sarah Mauger-Poliak, the attorney for Ayoub El-Khazzani, has asked that showing of the film The 15:17 to Paris be suspended until after a judge reviews evidence in the case. Mauger-Poliak said the film presents a "fictionalized" and "one-sided" portrayal of the incident to the public that could prejudice the case of El-Khazzani, who is Moroccan. "I am aware that my client is not an angel, but let justice do its work," she said, according to the BBC. In the attack in August 2015, the three Americans, Air Force serviceman Spencer Stone, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos — both traveling in civilian clothes — and Anthony Sadler, a student at Sacramento State University, subdued the gunman, who was armed with a Kalashnikov rifle, 9mm handgun, boxcutter and gasoline.

Dall’Atanasio di Mostar a Henryk di Medjugorje

            

Introduzione

Diversi media hanno recentemente pubblicato la notizia che il vescovo in pensione di Varsavia-Praga e arcivescovo ad personam Henryk Hoser ha dato inizio al suo incarico di Visitatore Apostolico a Medjugorje. L’informazione stessa ha causato molte reazioni nel mondo virtuale. Ancora una volta, si è aperto uno scontro tra coloro che considerano le apparizioni di Medjugorje come verità assoluta e coloro che le considerano non autentiche. Insieme a questa notizia è stato pubblicato un altro articolo secondo cui il vescovo di Mostar-Duvno, Ratko Perić, in qualità di vescovo nel cui territorio si trova la parrocchia di Medjugorje, ha ricevuto l’arcivescovo Hoser e Luigi Pezzuto, nunzio apostolico in Bosnia-Erzegovina. Poiché egli ha espresso in questa occasione il suo rispetto per la decisione della Santa Sede, ha offerto all’arcivescovo Hoser la sua collaborazione, gli ha augurato l’abbondante aiuto di Dio nell’adempiere alla sua missione e ha poi ribadito in modo chiaro e inequivocabile qual è stata la costante posizione della Curia diocesana di Mostar, che non considera nessuna «apparizione», nessun «messaggio», nessun «segreto» e nessuna «pergamena» come autentici, compresi i primi sette o dieci giorni delle cosiddette apparizioni, le reazioni si sono trasformate in insulti e ostilità aperti.

Regina della pace o Regina dei disordini


Anche solo una rapida occhiata ai commenti fatti su alcuni dei portali più popolari, sia laici che religiosi, porta a concludere che in essi c’è pochissima compostezza e obiettività, e invece una grande quantità di sarcasmo, amarezza e insulti grossolani. Dal punto di vista laico, i toni in genere vanno dalla ridicolizzazione alla diffamazione di entrambe le parti, il che è comprensibile, in base all’approccio e alle credenziali dei commentatori. Tuttavia è molto triste osservare come sui cosiddetti portali religiosi, così come nei profili ufficiali e personali sui social network, il maggior numero di commentatori-credenti pronuncino insulti scandalosamente maleducati. A questo proposito, ciò che è particolarmente triste è il modo in cui i sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, quelli che fanno facilmente riferimento alla Gospa di Medjugorje [cioè la Madonna] come Madre e Regina della Pace, assumono un atteggiamento così scomposto e intollerante da far gelare il sangue nelle vene a causa dei loro attacchi contro il vescovo Perić, che vanno dall’augurio che crepi, alle accuse di essere un agente del KGB, un materialista incallito e un non credente o addirittura Satana incarnato.

«Fra» Bože Radoš e il diavolo, ovvero l’amore verso i nemici alla luce della verità di Medjugorje


In questo contesto, molto scalpore ha destato in particolare un video, più precisamente un’accusa al vescovo Perić di non essere altro che il diavolo. Si tratta di un video postato sul profilo Facebook di Bože Radoš, che è ben noto ai sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje e che arbitrariamente si definisce «Fra» Bože Radoš. È un ex membro dell’Ordine francescano, che a causa della sua disobbedienza è stato dimesso 20 anni fa e sospeso da tutte le facoltà sacerdotali, ma tuttavia continua a indossare l’abito francescano e ad usurpare il ministero sacerdotale. Negli archivi del vecchio sito web delle diocesi di Mostar-Duvno e ​​Trebinje-Mrkan si legge: «Bože Radoš, congedato per decreto del Generale, il 28 febbraio 1998, confermato dalla Santa Sede il 23 marzo 1998, sospeso dal celebrare i sacramenti il ​​30 dicembre 1998. È illegalmente residente nel canonicato parrocchiale di Čapljina e svolge illegalmente il ministero in altri luoghi dell’Erzegovina».
I suoi attacchi contro il vescovo Perić non sono una novità, perché sono una costante delle sue attività pastorali illegittime, così come delle attività pastorali di alcuni altri (spesso dimessi e sospesi) francescani. Ciò può essere confermato, tra l’altro, dalla sua pubblicazione, scritta insieme agli altri «frati di Čapljina», dal titolo Il diavolo in Erzegovina. Pubblica accusa al vescovo Ratko Perić, che è un libretto pubblicato dall’Associazione di fedeli cattolici dell’Erzegovina «Mir i dobro» (Pace e bene) a Čapljina, nel 2002. Il contenuto del libretto è, giusto per informazione, tragicomico, mentre la «pace» e il «bene» non vi si ritrovano nemmeno in tracce.
Inoltre, a quale livello di manipolazione i «Frati» di Čapljina e alcuni altri «frati» della stessa mentalità e attività di «Fra» Bože sono disposti ad arrivare, lo si può vedere dal fatto che uno di loro in passato – «Fra» Stanko Pavlović – prima di essere dimesso dall’Ordine dei Frati Minori, osò fingere di essere un vescovo ed ebbe l’ardire di amministrare il sacramento della Confermazione ai candidati di Čapljina.
E’ bene aggiungere che «Fra» Bože Radoš è un ospite gradito in quei media che fanno molto per promuovere le cosiddette apparizioni di Medjugorje, e i suoi insulti contro il vescovo in questi contesti sono regolarmente presentati come coraggio e saggezza, e mai come arroganza e disobbedienza. Inoltre, a giudicare dalle sue frequenti apparizioni e attività su Facebook, non possiamo sottrarci all’impressione che, a causa delle sue numerose esibizioni e auto-promozioni, non abbia molto tempo per il rosario e il breviario.
Coerentemente con il suo modo abituale di offendere il vescovo nel modo più crudo, «Fra» Bože ha anche pubblicato il summenzionato video, che è stato visto oltre 30.000 volte dalla sua messa on-line, ha ricevuto oltre 250 commenti ed è stato condiviso circa lo stesso numero di volte. Va anche notato che «Fra» Bože ha un gran numero di seguaci, cioè che la maggior parte dei commentatori approva e supporta questo modo di esprimersi e gli insulti al vescovo Perić, e aggiunge i propri, allo stesso indirizzo. Tuttavia, grazie a Dio, c’è un buon numero di persone che esprimono il loro orrore di fronte a colpi così bassi, e ancor più ce ne sono di quelli che esprimono il loro profondo dolore per il fatto che una persona di Chiesa usi tale vocabolario, specialmente quando questo viene fatto da un «frate».

«Io sono per la pace, ma essi, appena parlo, sono per la guerra»


Ciò che vogliamo sottolineare qui è proprio questo tipo di brutto e crudo vocabolario che viene spesso usato da alcuni frati dell’Erzegovina e dai loro cloni ideologici per squalificare il vescovo Perić e chiunque non riconosca le apparizioni di Medjugorje. Ma, ancora di più, vogliamo anche sottolineare in modo autocritico che questo tipo di vocabolario provoca nervosismo e crudezza in coloro che sentono il bisogno di reagire a questo. In questa luce, siamo consapevoli che anche noi abbiamo oltrepassato il limite delle argomentazioni espresse con compostezza e siamo entrati nell’arena del ridicolizzare e sminuire «Fra» Bože e simili «frati», insieme a tutti coloro che sostengono le apparizioni di Medjugorje. Guardando agli altri in questa luce e guardando a noi stessi, possiamo osservare che questa Regina della Pace di Medjugorje è strana, così strana che lei annulla la sua stessa essenza, perché invece che per la pace, sembra che sia per la guerra. È simile a ciò che leggiamo nel salmo: «Troppo tempo ho abitato con chi detesta la pace. Io sono per la pace, ma essi, appena parlo, sono per la guerra» (Sal 120,6-7). E queste due parti probabilmente non sarebbero mai d’accordo su chi è il nemico della pace, chi parla di pace e chi è per la guerra.
Il tema delle apparizioni di Medjugorje dovrebbe, ovviamente, essere aperto a qualsiasi discussione, anche a quelle sarcastiche, perché, per sua natura, è qualcosa che non è affatto e non può mai essere considerato una credenza obbligatoria. Eppure in pratica risulta essere un’area molto pericolosa, della quale solo pochi, e raramente, osano parlare criticamente. Pertanto, è del tutto comprensibile perché alcuni dei «frati» erzegovinesi ricoprano di insulti il vescovo Perić o, come direbbero le Scritture: «La sua bocca era più dolce del burro, ma la guerra era nel suo cuore: le sue parole erano più morbide dell’olio, ma erano spade sguainate» (Sal 55,21). In questo modo, il comandamento dell’amore di Cristo verso i nostri nemici è completamente svalutato, ancor peggio è corrotto nella misura in cui si iniziano a odiare sia gli amici che i fratelli. Ci sembra che questo sia uno dei problemi fondamentali del fenomeno di Medjugorje e, in questa luce, ci permettiamo di ripetere, ancora una volta, che in tutto questo non vediamo alcuna ragione obiettivamente giustificata per chiamare la Gospa di Medjugorje Regina della Pace ma piuttosto colei che incita costantemente alla guerra.

Le colorite bugie di Medjugorje


In altre parole, gli argomenti del vescovo Ratko Perić e le prove indiscutibili fornite dall’ufficio della Curia di Mostar durante tutto il tempo delle apparizioni sono completamente accettabili per noi, poiché indicano chiaramente che le apparizioni di Medjugorje sono una semplice menzogna e manipolazione delle masse. Pertanto, è abbastanza comprensibile che, durante il suo incontro con l’arcivescovo Hoser, il vescovo abbia presentato pubblicamente e chiaramente la sua posizione, anche se sa che colui che è stato nominato Visitatore Apostolico è per il momento completamente schierato con i francescani e ha accettato senza dubbio solo la loro versione dei fatti, mentre di fronte a un bel po’ di frutti negativi di Medjugorje sta semplicemente chiudendo gli occhi. Pertanto, riteniamo necessario esaminare alcune delle cose particolarmente evidenti emerse in questi giorni, per tentare di interpretarle in un modo che appaia ragionevole.
Prima di tutto, vogliamo dire che abbiamo già affrontato la questione della credibilità delle cosiddette apparizioni di Medjugorje nel testo intitolato Gli Zeloti di Medjugorje, o come la «Gospa» contraddice la Madonna [croatoinglese] e che non c’è bisogno di aggiungere qualcosa a questo. La grande quantità di prove presentate dall’ufficio della Curia di Mostar porta semplicemente alla conclusione che il fenomeno di Medjugorje è una fabbricazione, quindi qualsiasi ulteriore discussione su questo sarebbe interessante solo se qualcuno fosse in grado di smentire queste prove. Insieme a questo, vogliamo solo sottolineare qui che il lavoro svolto finora dall’arcivescovo Hoser riguardo a Medjugorje ci sembra che sia stato assolutamente imperfetto, perché ha fatto il lavoro che gli è stato affidato in modo superficiale, prevenuto e poco serio. Ne abbiamo già parlato nei testi: Il fanatismo di Medjugorje e l’inviato papale arcivescovo Hoser e Con quale autorità l’arcivescovo Hoser proclama Medjugorje santuario? Anche riguardo a questi testi non sentiamo alcun bisogno di aggiungere o cancellare nulla. Tuttavia, sentiamo di dover commentare alcune nuove circostanze, che sono principalmente incentrate sul vescovo Perić, l’arcivescovo Hoser e papa Francesco, o sulla Santa Sede, come attori principali.
Ci poniamo la domanda: come si può comprendere correttamente la decisione della Santa Sede di nominare un visitatore apostolico e quindi, probabilmente, sollevare completamente il vescovo Perić dalla sua giurisdizione sulla parrocchia di Medjugorje? Anche se il mandato dell’arcivescovo Hoser è stato assegnato ad nutum della Santa Sede, e sebbene sia esclusivamente di carattere pastorale, non crediamo che, con questa nomina, al vescovo Perić sia lasciata una qualche autorità per amministrare quella parrocchia, che, de facto, diventa una parrocchia sotto la giurisdizione della Santa Sede. Questo potrebbe sembrare ingiusto verso il vescovo Perić, anche come un segno di declassamento e di critica, ma in realtà non deve essere così.
Prima di discutere cosa intendiamo con questo, vorremmo dire alcune parole sul vescovo Ratko Perić e su come vediamo il suo ruolo nel contesto del fenomeno di Medjugorje.

Il ruolo del vescovo Perić nel fenomeno di Medjugorje


Il vescovo Perić e i suoi più stretti collaboratori, così come il suo predecessore, il vescovo Žanić e i suoi collaboratori, hanno fatto molto per rivelare le menzogne ​​di Medjugorje, anche se molto lentamente. Mentre c’è ancora un numero molto più grande di coloro che accettano senza dubbio le apparizioni di Medjugorje come credibili, non si deve ignorare il fatto che molti stanno facendo sempre più domande e arrivano a una delle due conclusioni: che si tratti di una semplice manipolazione, oppure che non si tratti delle apparizioni della Madonna, ma di apparizioni del diavolo, come direbbe «Fra» Bože. Tuttavia, questa volta non nella persona del vescovo Perić, ma di «colui che divide», dalla testa ai piedi.
In questa luce, il ruolo del vescovo Perić e dei suoi più stretti collaboratori è lodevole, perché essi hanno dimostrato un’incredibile forza e fedeltà nella difesa dell’ortodossia, mentre i sacrifici e gli insulti che hanno dovuto sopportare e continuare a sostenere confermano il loro livello di preoccupazione nel difendere la Madre di Dio e la Madre della Chiesa dalla Regina della Pace di Medjugorje, che sta diffondendo turbamento attorno a sé. Per noi quindi, come abbiamo già detto in un precedente testo [croatoinglese], il vescovo Perić, a causa della sua chiarezza e forza, è simile a sant’Atanasio, che in difesa della vera fede dovette fuggire in esilio cinque volte a causa degli attacchi degli eretici ariani del suo tempo. Ancor meglio, a lui appartiene il titolo di «Atanasio di Mostar», attribuitogli per le stesse ragioni dal presidente della Conferenza episcopale croata, l’arcivescovo Želimir Puljić.
Queste parole di lode all’Atanasio di Mostar e ai suoi collaboratori non sono un segno di piaggeria o adulazione. Al contrario, è nostra ferma convinzione che essi meritano questo riconoscimento per i loro veramente grandi sacrifici, dato che spesso vengono lasciati soli a lottare per la vera fede contro tutti gli altri. E non solo con la sfida di Medjugorje, ma anche in molti altri campi, come la lettera circolare del vescovo Ratko Perić del 22 ottobre 2016, con il titolo: «Un promemoria ai confessori» [presentazione in italiano], in cui, unico vescovo di lingua croata, fornisce istruzioni chiare e ortodosse nell’interpretazione dell’esortazione di Papa Francesco Amoris laetitia, senza le esitazioni e i timorosi silenzi o attese che hanno avuto la maggioranza dei vescovi nel mondo. Siamo certi che tale chiarezza riguardo agli insegnamenti originali della Chiesa e il coraggio nella loro difesa sono stati largamente raggiunti dal vescovo Perić nella sua già citata battaglia con Medjugorje.
Tuttavia, vogliamo sottolineare che proviamo un certo rispetto, e forse persino un sentimento di apprezzamento, verso quei francescani che sono pronti a difendere la Gospa di Medjugorje con tutte le loro forze, perché in tutta questa storia stanno anche subendo umiliazioni e innumerevoli colpi (ma è anche vero che loro stessi ne sono regolarmente responsabili). A noi, sembrano semplicemente fanatici pronti a morire per la loro verità. Eppure, tutto questo non è qualcosa che possa essere facilmente ignorato, indipendentemente dal fatto che siamo convinti che la loro verità sia in realtà una semplice bugia. Tuttavia, anche se sono pronti a cadere nelle più basilari forme di disobbedienza, riteniamo che tali azioni da parte loro siano più comunemente derivate da una solida convinzione di agire correttamente.
Ancora una volta, torniamo al problema dell’amore cristiano e ancor più all’amore verso i nemici, perché la storia di Medjugorje mostra uno scandaloso livello di intolleranza, che oscura così il volto misericordioso del nostro Maestro e il cuore tenero di sua e nostra Madre e, di conseguenza, gli eventi attorno a Medjugorje appaiono agli osservatori esterni come un circo. E poi, questo paradigma di Medjugorje, purtroppo, viene copiato in molti altri settori della Chiesa, facendo così perdere alla Chiesa la reputazione, la credibilità e il valore della sua missione.
Desideriamo sottolineare ancora una volta che la responsabilità di una tale situazione non dipende dal vescovo Perić e dai suoi collaboratori, come spesso è asserito dai sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, ma solo da coloro che hanno dato inizio alle bugie, coloro che hanno perseverato in queste bugie e attraverso la manipolazione dei media hanno permesso che queste si diffondessero in tutto il mondo. Poiché è il vescovo responsabile della parrocchia di Medjugorje, il vescovo Perić ha dovuto reagire a tali menzogne ​​a causa del suo ministero, e sosteniamo che ha fatto esattamente ciò che ci si aspetterebbe da qualsiasi vescovo della Chiesa cattolica.
La nomina dell’arcivescovo Hoser a Visitatore Apostolico ha poi declassato il vescovo Perić; e l’aver scelto una persona che accetta senza riserve le apparizioni di Medjugorje lo ha umiliato; e l’intervento diretto della Santa Sede ha squalificato tutti i suoi sforzi verso la verità; e tutto ciò ha avuto luogo un anno e mezzo prima del suo ritiro regolare per allontanarlo deliberatamente dalla scena pubblica così da preparare il terreno a un nuovo vescovo che sia sostenitore delle apparizioni di Medjugorje. Il tempo dirà se le cose stanno così. Tuttavia, a noi sembra che le cose potrebbero evolvere molto rapidamente in una direzione gradita al vescovo Perić.

Il fenomeno di Medjugorje tra l’Atanasio di Mostar e Henryk di Medjugorje


Innanzitutto, bisogna essere onesti e ammettere che, in sostanza, il vescovo Perić (non a causa di una sua responsabilità o di eventuali omissioni da parte sua) è stato solo nominalmente vescovo della parrocchia di Medjugorje. Parimenti, bisogna essere onesti e ammettere che non tutti i frati di Medjugorje hanno ostacolato la giurisdizione dell’Ufficio della Curia di Mostar. Tuttavia, in linea di principio e in considerazione delle intricate circostanze, si può dire che i frati di Medjugorje hanno guidato la parrocchia come hanno voluto, senza riconoscere l’autorità del vescovo e senza rispettare le sue decisioni. E spesso non hanno rispettato nemmeno l’autorità e le decisioni del Generale dell’Ordine e l’autorità e le decisioni della Santa Sede.
Tra l’altro, questa affermazione può essere comprovata dal fatto che con l’esplicita o tacita benedizione dei francescani, senza alcuna previa conoscenza e approvazione dell’Ordinario del luogo, sono nate molte comunità di carattere sospetto, dal Nucleo Centrale legato all’attuale movimento New Age dell’ex iniziatore e cervello dell’«operazione Medjugorje», «Fra» Tomislav Vlašić, fino ad una serie di altre comunità religiose, carismatiche e caritatevoli non riconosciute, considerate pericolose per la comunione ecclesiale.
Lo stesso vale per l’acclamato Festival Internazionale della Gioventù – lo Mladifest, che si tiene ogni anno dal 1° al 6 agosto, al quale affluiscono decine di migliaia di esaltati pellegrini di Medjugorje, anche se probabilmente nessuno di loro sa da quale tipo di evento blasfemo si sia sviluppato, ragion per cui non potrebbe avere il sostegno di nessuno dei vescovi del mondo. I suoi fondatori e gli organizzatori, naturalmente, non hanno bisogno di tale sostegno, perché lo trovano nelle vaste folle che vi partecipano, che non chiedono altro che di sentire qualcosa in quell’oasi di pace. L’evento a cui ci riferiamo è legato a una presunta rivelazione della Gospa di Medjugorje del 1984, in cui la Gospa informava i veggenti di essere nata il 5 agosto e che proprio in quell’anno, in quella data, avrebbe celebrato i suoi 2.000 anni. Entusiasti di questa rivelazione, i veggenti, secondo la testimonianza della veggente Marija Pavlović, decisero di preparare una grande torta di compleanno per la Gospa, decorata con candeline e molte rose di zucchero, e di portarla sulla collina delle apparizioni. La Gospa fu così toccata da questo regalo di compleanno che prese persino una delle rose di zucchero che le era stata offerta spontaneamente da uno di loro. Su una tale bizzarra mescolanza di naturale e soprannaturale, da cui è nato lo Mladifest, non c’è nulla da aggiungere, tranne che il vescovo Perić non approverebbe un’attività così pagana neanche morto. Ma ovviamente nessuno gli ha mai chiesto di farlo.
La nostra intenzione nel sottolineare tutto questo è di mostrare come in realtà le mani del vescovo Perić fossero legate, cioè, come contro una tale macchina di propaganda, capace di trasformare, senza scrupoli, un vescovo coscienzioso in un mostro, non avesse alcuno spazio di manovra per un’amministrazione regolare di Medjugorje. Proprio per questa ragione crediamo che le cose ora, e non solo in senso pastorale, si muovano nella giusta direzione.
Anche se l’arcivescovo Hoser nella sua precedente visita a Medjugorje non ha notato nessuna delle cose che abbiamo detto, ma al contrario ha fornito un sostegno senza riserve ai francescani, nella misura in cui dopo soli tre giorni a Medjugorje si è identificato con loro rivolgendosi ai fedeli con il saluto «Noi Medjugorjani», siamo convinti che presto comincerà a cambiare idea. Infatti, non appena i problemi pastorali lo costringeranno a compiere la minima mossa che non sia accettabile per i francescani e il settarismo diffuso, incontrerà ostruzionismo e opposizione. Ecco perché pensiamo che la nomina di un visitatore apostolico, e specialmente di un tale visitatore apostolico, sia un atto dello Spirito Santo, perché le intenzioni di molti cuori saranno rivelate attraverso di lui.
Inoltre, dato che il fenomeno di Medjugorje esiste per provocare tensione o la creazione dell’impressione generale che tutti coloro che credono nelle apparizioni di Medjugorje, specialmente i (disobbedienti) francescani erzegovinesi, siano martiri perseguitati a causa della cattiva coscienza e della malevolenza del vescovo Perić, la nomina di un visitatore apostolico farà quindi cessare la causa di tutte queste ingiustizie. Quindi, sarà interessante osservare cosa accadrà.

La nomina di un visitatore apostolico: un errore o una decisione saggia della Santa Sede?


Prevediamo che questo sarà l’inizio della fine dell’interesse delle masse per la destinazione di Medjugorje e quando le fonti di questo turismo religioso si prosciugheranno ci aspettiamo che anche i francescani stessi abbandoneranno la Regina della Pace. Inoltre, poiché i veggenti sono già nei loro anni maturi, è prevedibile che, dopo la loro morte, anche la sola menzione delle apparizioni non sarà abbastanza interessante, perché i pellegrini avranno appreso che la Gospa appariva su richiesta e che lei era così premurosa che posticipava persino il momento prestabilito, secondo i bisogni mutevoli dei clienti.
Certo, bisogna anche essere preparati a uno scenario di tentativi di continuare a tenere in vita la favola di Medjugorje, perché la secolare intraprendenza dei francescani potrebbe trovare nuove modalità, ad esempio, di provocare tensioni con la Santa Sede, secondo il metodo già collaudato e di successo, se e quando i rapporti con l’arcivescovo Hoser diventassero tesi. Oppure potrebbero pregare la Gospa perché conceda la grazia a dei nuovi arrivati, cosicché inizi ad apparire ad altri che facciano in modo che le apparizioni continuino di generazione in generazione. Ci aspettiamo che la decisione finale verrà presa solo dopo che avranno considerato attentamente ciò che a loro conviene di più.
In questa luce, è bene menzionare le parole di Henryk di Medjugorje prima della sua partenza dalla Polonia, cioè prima di venire a Medjugorje e iniziare il suo ministero come visitatore apostolico, sulla questione della mafia che fiorisce a Medjugorje, in particolare quella di Napoli, come da lui sottolineato. Non dubitiamo che la mafia abbia veramente trovato il suo posto a Medjugorje, eppure ci chiediamo: chi ha aperto loro le porte e chi le tiene ben aperte? Inoltre, temiamo che la mafia menzionata dall’arcivescovo Hoser sia solo un bambino prematuro rispetto ad un’altra, nascosta nell’involucro carismatico-caritatevole, che mons. Željko Majić, il vicario generale della diocesi di Mostar-Duvno, come persona ben informata, menziona nel suo acuto e interessante articolo intitolato: Razlikovati pšenicu od kukolja (Distinguere il grano dalla zizzania). Se questa mafia ha preso alla gola influenti dignitari vaticani di alto rango, che hanno il potere e l’interesse di chiamare bugie la verità, forse il tempo lo dirà, ma molti piccoli ciottoli lanciati lungo la strada portano a quella fonte oscura.
Per non sbagliare, qui sottolineiamo chiaramente che non stiamo pensando a papa Francesco o all’arcivescovo Hoser, ma piuttosto intuiamo che un futuro prevedibile mostrerà che la decisione del papa è molto più saggia e molto più profonda di quanto possa sembrare in questo momento. Cioè, a noi, come osservatori, mancano molti pezzi per completare il mosaico, mentre lui ha un quadro completo o almeno più completo e, in questa luce, sa perché sta facendo quello che sta facendo. Potremmo dire che l’ingenuo e inoffensivo Henryk di Medjugorje è ideale per servire allo scopo del papa nel realizzare ciò che intende, lontano dalle luci delle telecamere.
Questa conclusione può essere sostenuta dal fatto che il papa ha ripetutamente, in modo diretto e sarcastico, parlato pubblicamente delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, come menzionato da mons. Željko Majić nel suo articolo. Così, il 14 novembre 2013, nella sua omelia mattutina durante la Messa, ha detto: «Io conosco un veggente, una veggente che riceve lettere della Madonna, messaggi della Madonna. Ma, guarda, la Madonna è madre! E ama tutti noi. Ma non è un capo ufficio della posta, per inviare messaggi tutti i giorni». E il 9 giugno 2015, sempre nell’omelia dell’Eucaristia mattutina, ha detto: «Ma dove sono i veggenti che ci dicono oggi la lettera che la Madonna manderà alle 4 del pomeriggio? E vivono di questo». Che questa affermazione non sia stata detta in modo spericolato, ma piuttosto meditato, si può vedere nel fatto che l’ha ripetuta quasi per intero tre anni e mezzo dopo, il 13 maggio 2017, quando ha detto: «Preferisco la Madonna come madre, nostra madre, non la Madonna capo dell’ufficio telegrafico, che invia messaggi ogni giorno alla tale ora. Questa non è la madre di Gesù. E queste presunte apparizioni non hanno valore. Questo lo dico come opinione personale». Insieme a questo, si dovrebbe aggiungere un estratto della sua conversazione con l’Unione dei Superiori Generali il 25 novembre 2016, quando ha detto: «Questa moda della Madonna come una superstar, che come protagonista si pone al centro, non è cattolica» (L’Osservatore Romano, 10.2.2017, p. 4). Anche se in nessuna di queste affermazioni il papa ha menzionato esplicitamente Medjugorje, dal contenuto dei messaggi e dalle circostanze delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, è più che ovvio che si riferiscono ad esso [nota del traduttore: in realtà, il 13 maggio 2017 il papa ha detto nella maniera più chiara ed esplicita che si riferiva a Medjugorje].
Giungiamo a questa conclusione anche per il fatto che il papa ha nominato l’arcivescovo Hoser ad nutum Sanctae Sedis, il che significa che il suo ministero può durare anni, ma che può in qualsiasi momento, appena la Santa Sede lo decida, anche cessare. Ciò significa che l’arcivescovo Hoser non sarà nelle condizioni di prendere facilmente iniziative di comune accordo con i francescani, cosa che probabilmente vorrebbe fare con tutto il cuore in questo momento, ma, prima di agire, dovrà pensare se le sue mosse saranno gradite al papa, tenendo sempre presente che il papa non vede il fenomeno di Medjugorje con gli stessi occhi di Hoser. Inoltre, il papa ha ulteriormente limitato il suo ministero, avendo stabilito che è puramente pastorale, come affermato nel comunicato stampa dell’Ufficio stampa della Santa Sede del 31 maggio 2018, e ha quindi chiarito che non deve più lasciarsi andare ad affermazioni al di fuori di questo contesto, come ha invece fatto in precedenza.

A mo’ di conclusione


Detto questo, crediamo veramente che la decisione del papa sia molto più saggia e di vasta portata di quanto sembra ora, e che, in quanto tale, equilibri sia il lato dottrinale che quello pastorale del fenomeno di Medjugorje. In altre parole, sembra che papa Francesco abbia aperto un nuovo capitolo, forse finale, di Medjugorje, che esteriormente potrebbe sembrare andare a favore dei sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, facendo presagire il riconoscimento di Medjugorje come santuario, il che appare anche come un declassamento del vescovo Perić e un netto rifiuto di tutto ciò che egli ha fatto negli ultimi decenni. Ma è possibile che, in realtà, attraverso le facoltà sufficienti ma molto limitate date all’arcivescovo Hoser, stia solo cercando di creare una situazione ordinaria e regolare a Medjugorje, sapendo bene che l’interesse per il fenomeno di Medjugorje sarà significativamente ridotto, con i fiumi di quei pellegrini che sono alla ricerca di miracoli più che di Dio, così come in tutti quei potenti gruppi di ambito carismatico-caritatevole di gola spirituale, i cui motivi di esistenza cessano nel momento in cui l’interesse per i loro «prodotti» diminuisce.
Che noi si sia visto giusto o meno, desideriamo comunque esprimere al vescovo Perić la nostra profonda gratitudine per la sua perseveranza nella vera fede, al tramonto del suo ministero episcopale, parafrasando le parole della Sacra Scrittura: Hai combattuto la buona battaglia; hai (quasi) terminato la tua corsa (episcopale), hai conservato la (tua e nostra) fede! (2 Tim 4,7). Con ulteriore gratitudine a lui e ai suoi collaboratori, aggiungiamo: Ora mi resta solo la corona di giustizia che il Signore, giusto giudice, mi consegnerà in quel giorno; e non solo a me, ma anche a tutti coloro che attendono con amore la sua manifestazione (2 Tim 4,8).

Cardinale Schönborn: La Chiesa ha "riconosciuto ufficialmente i buoni frutti di Medjugorje”


Per la prima volta nella storia delle presunte apparizioni di Medjugorje, l'annuale Festa della Gioventù (dal 1° al 6 di agosto) è iniziato con una Messa celebrata dal nunzio apostolico di Bosnia e Herzegovina, arcivescovo Luigi Pezzuto.

Le date del festival risalgono a una [falsa] rivelazione di Medjugorje secondo cui Nostra Signora sarebbe nata il 5 agosto dell'anno 16 a.C. [e pertanto avrebbe avuto 9 anni quando Cristo nacque nel 7 a.C.].

Il cardinale pro-gay di Vienna Schönborn ha inviato i suoi saluto alla Festa di quest'anno.

Secondo lui, la nomina da parte di papa Francesco di un inviato permanente a Medjugorje è "segno di grande apprezzamento e riconoscimento". La Chiesa ha "riconosciuto ufficialmente i buoni frutti di Medjugorje”, ha aggiunto.

              California's Gov. Brown: Wildfires Are Evidence Of Changing Climate 'In Real Time'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    California Gov. Jerry Brown says his state is in "uncharted territory" with the current slew of intense wildfires and he warns that climate change has made the situation "part of our ordinary experience." "[The] predictions that I see, the more serious predictions of warming and fires to occur later in the century, 2040 or 2050, they're now occurring in real time," Brown said at a news conference on Wednesday in Sacramento. "You can expect that — unfortunately — to continue intensifying in California and throughout the Southwest. We are part of that process," he said. Brown said that only a month into the current budget year California has already spent $125 million, a quarter of its fire budget. "We're in for a really rough ride," Brown said at the news conference. "It's going to get expensive, it's going to get dangerous, and we have to apply all our creativity to make the best of what is going to be an increasingly bad situation." Brown's remarks reflect a growing body of evidence

    The spread of a deadly wildfire that has swept through Northern California in recent days, killing at least six people, showed some signs of slowing down on Sunday. Firefighters continued throwing resources into containing the Carr Fire, which has engulfed 95,368 acres and forced the evacuation of some 38,000 people. It is just 17 percent contained, according to Cal Fire. The Carr Fire , which is the largest of 17 wildfires burning in California, has destroyed or damaged more than 1,000 structures in Shasta and Trinity counties, about 150 miles north of Sacramento. Meanwhile, in central California, where the Ferguson Fire near Yosemite National Park has grown to 54,481 acres with 30 percent containment, a second firefighter has reportedly been killed. Brian Hughes was struck by a tree while removing brush in an effort to contain the fire, according to officials. On Saturday, President Trump issued a federal emergency declaration for California.

    Updated at 11:55 a.m. ET At least two people have died as a fast-moving fire in Northern California jumped the Sacramento River and charged into the city of Redding, sending residents fleeing ahead of the flames late Thursday. The Carr Fire has burned more than 44,000 acres and was only 3 percent contained as of Friday morning. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection announced early Friday that a private bulldozer operator who was working on an active section of the fire had been killed. Hours later, the department said a Redding firefighter also died, according to Capital Public Radio's Nick Miller . The Carr Fire, one of several wildfires sweeping through the state, tore through Shasta and Whiskeytown, destroying homes and other buildings before moving into Redding, a city of about 92,000. Several firefighters and civilians have also been injured, fire officials said. The fire that began Monday tripled in size overnight Thursday to 45 square miles as winds stoked
              BISPOS RECÉM NOMEADOS FALAM DOS DESAFIOS DA ATUAÇÃO EM REALIDADES DISTINTAS DO PAÍS      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


    Bispos recém nomeados falam dos desafios da atuação em realidades distintas do país
    A Comissão para os Ministérios Ordenados e a Vida Consagrada da Conferência Nacional dos Bispos do Brasil (CNBB) promove anualmente um encontro para os novos membros do episcopado brasileiro. Neste ano, de 6 a 10 de agosto, doze deles estão na sede da entidade, em Brasília (DF). Nomeados pelo papa Francisco desde agosto do ano passado, a grande maioria já tomou posse em suas respectivas dioceses. Os que ainda não foram ordenados estão a um passo de seu grande dia. O portal da CNBB conversou com três novos membros. Apesar de serem de realidades distintas, enfrentam o mesmo desafio.
    Confira os depoimentos na íntegra:

    Dom Mário Spaki – Nomeado bispo de Paranavaí (PR) em 25 de abril de 2018. Sua ordenação aconteceu no dia 08 de julho de 2018.
    “Eu fui chamado pelo papa Francisco para ser bispo diocesano de Paranavaí, no próprio estado do Paraná onde eu estava trabalhando nos últimos sete anos como secretário-executivo do regional Sul 2 da CNBB. Para mim foi uma grande alegria! Sinceramente foi uma surpresa, eu não estava esperando esse chamado e me coloquei nas mãos da Igreja com disponibilidade porque sei que quando a Igreja pede alguma coisa para nós ela antes fez uma pesquisa, averiguou se é o caso ou não para pedir, então vindo do papa Francisco eu me joguei, eu me lancei nesta nova missão que já assumi na diocese de Paranavaí no dia 08 de julho com a posse canônica, portanto, já está completando um mês de presença lá na diocese de Paranavaí. 

    Na foto, dom Mário Spaki é o primeiro da esquerda para a direita
    Antes dos desafios eu quero dizer das alegrias, porque já no dia da posse eu me senti super acolhido pela comunidade católica, vieram mais de 4 mil pessoas no dia da posse, um calor humano muito grande, o povo muito junto com o bispo. No primeiro momento eu me senti muito acolhido e, claro que, já estando na diocese eu já fui percebendo os desafios e olha que lá é uma diocese relativamente pequena, então os desafios também são menores: como evangelizar? como chegar até as famílias? como chegar até as pessoas pelos meios de comunicação? como alcançar a juventude?
    Então, nós vamos fazer ponto por ponto, mas nós vamos dar uma resposta não individualmente, mas vamos montando comissões que vão dialogando, que vão aprofundando, e assim, a gente vai numa forma sinodal, de comunhão encontrando as respostas. Eu disse para os padres já desde o primeiro momento que nós vamos caminhar juntos e, se por acaso, nós lá na frente descobrirmos que erramos o percurso nós voltamos, porque nós fomos juntos e então nós devemos voltar juntos para tomarmos outra direção”.
    Dom Julio César Souza de Jesus– Nomeado bispo auxiliar de Fortaleza no dia 11 de julho. Sua ordenação episcopal está marcada para o dia 30 de setembro, na Catedral de Nossa Senhora das Dores, em Teresina (PI).

    Na foto, dom Julio é o primeiro da esquerda para a direita
    “Acolhi o chamado com humildade e amor, humildade porque fui nomeado não por ser o mais inteligente, o mais santo, o mais sadio da diocese, apenas pela graça de Deus. Deus conhece os meus limites, eu conheço os meus limites, mas eu aceito a graça de Deus, até porque antes de ser nomeado eu dava aula de sacramento da ordem em um seminário e tratando sobre o ministério da ordem nos três graus tanto no diaconato, no presbiterato e no episcopado eu falava sobre a resposta positiva que nós sempre devemos dar a Deus e, por isso, eu respondo com amor, com gratidão, com generosidade este chamado, com humildade, mas também com uma certa angústia porque eu confio na graça de Deus, talvez angústia pelas limitações que eu tenho, mas eu confio na graça de Deus e sei que ele não vai me abandonar.
    Expectativas eu não tenho nenhuma, eu tenho esperanças, porque eu penso que a expectativa é algo passageiro, enquanto que a esperança não, a esperança não nos decepciona e nós devemos sempre ter esperança e sempre estar com a esperança viva. Eu tenho esperança de ser acolhido, tenho esperança em Deus de fazer um bom trabalho, tenho esperança no povo de Deus, na Igreja de Fortaleza”.
    Dom Vitor Agnaldo – Nomeado bispo da diocese de Propriá (SE) em 25 de outubro. Tomou posse em 3 de fevereiro de 2018.

    Na foto, dom Vitor é o de clergyman cinza
    “Para mim foi uma surpresa essa questão da nomeação pelo episcopado, a gente nunca espera e de repente recebe o telefonema. Não tinha ideia de que a minha vida fosse mudar tanto, porque eu sempre fui pároco, trabalhei com pessoas nas pastorais e de repente mudei totalmente, saí de uma paróquia e fui para uma diocese e aí mudou muita coisa, principalmente a questão das relações humanas. Claro, o bispo continua se relacionando com muita gente, mas não é a mesma coisa que numa paróquia, então isso para mim foi o primeiro susto, mas uma vez na diocese a gente tem que enfrentar, principalmente à luz da fé, porque os desafios são muitos. 
    Eu graças a Deus fui enviado para uma diocese boa, simples, de pessoas simples, um clero simples, não encontrei grandes dificuldades até o momento. O desafio maior hoje é você dar um rosto à diocese de Propriá, principalmente no que se refere à pastoral de conjunto, à sinodalidade, isto é um pouco difícil até porque a sociedade é líquida, as relações são líquidas, mas eu estou com muita esperança, estou feliz, estou contente, acho que apesar das nossas limitações, contamos com a graça de Deus e acho que vai dar certo!
    Meu lema episcopal é “Dilatar o coração para o serviço”. É aquela ideia de que o pastor, o bispo ele tem que dilatar o coração para amar, para acolher, para servir, tem que sempre estar com aquele coração de pai e mãe que sempre acolhe a todos”.

    Stricter Fuel Standards May Cause More Auto Accidents I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Car Accident Lawyer. Cars getting better gas mileage is more of a curse rather than a blessing, according to the Trump Administration. They argue that better gas mileage would result in more people on the road, therefore, they would be exposed to higher levels of risk. This argument is meant to justify freezing Obama-era toughening of fuel standards. Transportation experts debate these claims, which were contained in a proposal draft prepared by the administration this summer. Additionally, draft excerpts obtained by the Associated Press reveal the administration’s plan to dispute California’s long-running authority to enact its own, stricter fuel and pollution standards. Revisions for the mileage requirements from 2021 – 2026 are still a work in progress, according to the administration, and changes might be made prior to the proposal’s public release. It’s…

              Firefighters capture video of "firenado"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Firefighters in Derbyshire, England, captured a strange and frightening natural phenomenon on video Tuesday. It looks like a tornado that's on fire, and the Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service Ashby Station appropriately referred to it as a "firenado."

    The video of the menacing, swirling flames has gone viral online, and the fire and rescue service offered a simple explanation as to what caused the blazing cyclone. "It's created as cool air enters the top of the hot air causing a swirl similar to how a tornado is formed," Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service Ashby Station wrote on Facebook.

    The firenado — also known as a fire whirl — was spotted when crews were sent to battle a blaze in Albert Village. The video has been viewed nearly 300,000 times on Facebook.

    A similar sight was recently reported in California, where over a dozen wildfires continue to rage. When the deadly Carr Fire exploded last month, it leapt across the Sacramento River and hit subdivisions in the Redding area. "They say it was like a fire tornado," said Chris Corona, who lives in the area where the fire was burning. "People started driving on the curbs, through lawns, everyone was running."

    The ambient air temperature in the area was close to 110 degrees at the time, "so that air is super fast rising into the atmosphere," Lonnie Quinn, chief weathercaster for CBS New York, explained.

    "You need to think of this as the air being a solid, and if you're taking a chunk of that air, superheating it and rising into the air, it's leaving a void below it," Quinn said.

    As more and more air gets pulled in, it begins to rotate. The more air that gets pulled in, the faster the air swirls and the taller it gets. Firenados also pick up burning embers, ash and flammable debris, and can extend hundreds or even thousands of feet in the air.


              Homeless Population Rises, Driven By West Coast Affordable-Housing Crisis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Homelessness in the United States went up slightly this year for the first time since 2010. During a one-night count in January, 553,742 people were found living outside or in shelters across the country, a 0.7 percent increase from the year before, according to new data released by the Department of Housing and Urban Development on Wednesday. The increase is almost entirely due to a surge in homelessness in Los Angeles and other cities facing severe shortages of affordable housing, say HUD officials. Many of the cities are on the West Coast, including Seattle, San Diego and Sacramento, Calif. Overall, the nation's homeless numbers are 13 percent lower than they were in 2010 and some communities have all but eliminated homelessness among veterans, emphasized HUD Secretary Ben Carson. "Where we're not making great progress are in places like Los Angeles and New York City. These happen to be places where the rents are going up much faster than the incomes," said Carson in an interview

              Para hacer primera comunión, dos años de preparación      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Con el fin de acercar la Iglesia a la población y "formar" en la fe desde niños a los fieles católicos, el cardenal Carlos Aguiar Retes implementó cambios en la preparación para los sacramentos y en la formación de los sacerdotes.

    El tiempo de preparación para hacer la primera comunión será de dos años, mientras que para la confirmación será de tres. Los cambios comenzarán a aplicarse a partir del inicio del ciclo escolar 2018-2019.

    Mediante el Decreto sobre la edad para recibir por vez primera los sacramentos de la Eucaristía y la Confirmación, el cardenal Carlos Aguiar Retes estableció los tiempos para la preparación que los niños deberán seguir para recibir esos sacramentos, a fin de que los menores de edad sean "formados en la fe".

    También destacó que en la Arquidiócesis de México la edad mínima para recibir por primera vez la sagrada Eucaristía es a los nueve años cumplidos, siempre y cuando se haya recibido la catequesis correspondiente. En cuanto al sacramento de la Confirmación, la edad mínima para recibirla es a los doce años.

    "No es exigir algo para recibir el sacramento, sino que recibir el sacramento es consecuencia de que el niño se ha ido formando en su fe. Cuando llega a los nueve años, se le da la Primera Comunión. Y si sigue formándose en la fe, cuando llegue a los 12 años, le administramos el sacramento de la Confirmación", dijo.

    Actualmente en las parroquias de la Ciudad de México la confirmación se recibía antes de la Primera Comunión con un año de catequesis; para el segundo año se les preparaba en la profundización de su fe para comulgar por primera vez.

    En cuanto a la formación de los sacerdotes, este 5 de agosto arrancó el nuevo modelo impulsado por el arzobispo primado de México, detalló que con esta nueva modalidad de formación en parroquias se busca que los seminaristas tengan un acompañamiento más cercano por parte de los formadores y de los párrocos.

    Mediante este nuevo modelo los seminaristas podrán conocer más de cerca todas las facetas de la vida parroquial, además tendrán un tipo de formación pastoral más cercana a las personas.

              In Rural New Mexico, Ranchers Wage Their Battle Through The Courts       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Ranchers across the West watched intently as the federal government prosecuted a Nevada ranching family for leading armed militia standoffs over cattle grazing on public land. Last month, the case against Cliven Bundy and his sons collapsed and now they're calling on other cattlemen to defy federal grazing rules and regulations. The question now is whether – or if – that will resonate among scores of other ranchers who rely on federal public land to graze their cattle. A visit to the mountains in a remote corner of southern New Mexico may offer a glimpse into the more mainstream heart of the industry. "It's rugged country, a lot of it is not accessible any other way than horseback," says rancher Gary Stone as he looks across the lush forested plateau of the Sacramento Mountains. At 9,000 feet above sea level in places, the mountains tower over the brutal deserts of White Sands and the sprawl of El Paso, Texas, below.

              Antifa goon who hit people with a bike lock gets 3 years probation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    Even given the tendency of judges to later drop or downgrade the charges against people involved in left-wing protests, I’m pretty surprised by this one. Eric Clanton is the Antifa member who was caught on video last April swinging a metal bike lock and bashing a Trump supporter in the skull. Clanton was facing four felony counts of assault, but Berkeleyside reports those charges were dropped in favor of a single misdemeanor charge:

    Wednesday, Clanton was supposed to have had his preliminary hearing, where a judge decides whether there’s enough evidence in a case for it to move ahead to trial. Instead, there was no hearing, and information about Clanton’s plea deal became available online.

    According to Alameda County Superior Court records, Clanton entered a “no contest” plea Wednesday to one misdemeanor battery charge. The felony charges against him were dismissed, and an allegation that he had caused serious bodily injury was stricken. A misdemeanor charge that Clanton wore a mask during the commission of the crime also was dropped.

    Police said, previously, that Clanton attacked at least three people with a metal U-lock during the April 15 rally in and around Civic Center Park. Court papers later revealed that Clanton struck at least seven people in the head, according to authorities. One person received a head laceration that required five staples to fix. Another was uninjured but had a piece of a helmet broken off. A third was struck across the neck and back, police wrote.

    Here’s the most well-known video of Clanton at work. As you’ll see, he sneaks up from behind other people and swings the heavy metal lock directly into the victim’s head before retreating:

    There’s another clip on YouTube showing another bike lock attack by the same guy. In this clip you can actually see his face right after the attack:

    Berkeleyside reports when police searched his apartment they found a bike lock, Antifa literature, and clothing that matched what was seen in the video clips. Also, his phone records placed him near the site of the attacks last April. All of that to say, I’m not sure why prosecutors decided to offer this guy a sweetheart deal when they had a fairly solid case that he’d engaged in multiple assaults and at least a couple cases of battery. At a minimum, why not charge him with misdemeanor counts for each attack?

    These street battles in Berkley, Portland, Sacramento, and elsewhere are going to keep happening so long as the masked goons continue to get a pass from authorities. Berkeley is inviting more violence by lowering the personal risk of engaging in it.

              The Hustle: How the Flyer Keeps the Free Press Free      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    As one does, Chance the Rapper announced in July — midway through an unannounced, newly released track, "I Might Need Security" — that he had bought a news outlet.

    "I got a hit list so long I don't know how to finish / I bought the Chicagoist just to run you racist bitches out of business," Chance chants.

    There was a time when this might have tugged at the edges of credulity: A popular musician buys a news outlet, and instead of a press release, drops a mention of the purchase into a song no one knew was dropping. Huh?

    Today, while the media world is speculating about what Chance's purchase of the Chicagoist will mean for its editorial content, we've grown accustomed to quick pivots and shifts — what journalism platforms exist, who owns what, who reads and talks about their work.

    I came to work for Contemporary Media, the parent company of the Flyer, at the beginning of this year. I sensed in the team here a certain clarity of purpose that felt like cool water in an increasingly muddled and scorched climate. It's not that the folks at the Flyer — and at Memphis magazine, our sister publication — always agree: Nope. It's that we show up with an essential, guiding sense that local stories need telling, and need telling locally.

    Globally, print advertising dropped 13.7 percent in 2009, and another 8.7 percent in 2016. In the years between and after, print advertising wasn't soaring — just not falling quite so precipitously. Look, I'm an English major, and my graduate degree is in the super-marketable field of Renaissance poetry. But I can tell you this situation isn't great for papers that rely on print advertising for sustenance. As this one does.

    But the Flyer is lucky to have both loyal readers and loyal advertisers. That's one of the beauties of Memphis: Folks stick together here, even when it's not sticky-hot outside. But around the country, alternative newsweeklies — like the Flyer — have felt the effects of the changing media landscape, as the insatiable Googles and Facebooks of the world gobble up ad dollars.

    The Flyer doesn't charge for what we serve — in print or online; we believe there should be no economic barrier between Memphians and access to Memphis news and information. But even though my training is more in Edmund Spenser than in expenditures, I can tell you the combination of a free paper and a shrinking pot of ad dollars makes it a hustle to keep this paper in your hands or on your screen.

    But this is Memphis: We know how to hustle. This spring, we introduced the Frequent Flyer program — a membership plan for loyal readers of the Flyer to support our reporters' work of keeping the community informed and connected. So far, a couple hundred people have joined — not because they're required to, and not because joining will get them T-shirts or snazzy lapel pins or their names printed in the paper a few times a year (see page 5).

    We surveyed Frequent Flyer members about why they had decided to toss a few of their dollars our way each month, and their answers were simple: Even as it grows more challenging to produce local, quality reporting, people increasingly understand the value of it.

    One member, Rosie Richmond Whalum, wrote, "I read the Flyer for relevant news — your many articles and information that keep us informed locally. And I like to hold a paper!"

    Another, Tina Pierce Sullivan, a longtime reader, came to appreciate the Flyer most after leaving Memphis, then returning. "In 1990, I moved to Sacramento and then to San Francisco, and was struck by how much less interesting their equivalent weekly papers were. They didn't have the soul that I'd quickly grown to love about the writing in the Memphis Flyer. When I moved back to Memphis, I was so happy to be reunited with the writing and commentary I could get in the Flyer."

    And William Cooper made a simple calculation: "I'd probably pay more than $5 a month for the Flyer if I had to, so it was an easy decision."

    Now's a strange — and strangely invigorating — time to work in media generally, and in print media especially. Not only are ad calculations changing, but facts and the journalists who report them have come under attack in a host of ways. The stakes, if not the dollars, have never been higher. Which is why we keep hustling.

    Anna Traverse is director of strategic initiatives for Contemporary Media Inc., the Flyer's parent company.

    Blog Ángeles y Santos
    Autor P. Álvaro Sánchez Rueda
    En tiempos de Santo Domingo de Guzmán, se desarrolló en una región de Francia y con gran fuerza, una herejía desarrollada por una secta llamada “albigense” y también “cátara” (del griego kataros = puro)[1]. La herejía consistía en negar a la Trinidad, a la que reemplazaban por una dupla de deidades, una buena –principio del bien, identificado con el espíritu- y otra mala –principio del mal, identificado con la materia-; además, negaban la divinidad de Jesucristo –consecuencia lógica de negar la Trinidad de Personas en Dios- y afirmaban que no fue un hombre sino en realidad un ángel y que tanto su encarnación, como muerte y resurrección, tenían un sentido meramente alegórico. Con respecto a la Iglesia Católica, la consideraban como un instrumento de corrupción de los hombres, puesto que difundía la fe en la Encarnación del Hijo de Dios lo cual era, para la secta, falso. Además, negaban los sacramentos y la verdad de que María es la Madre de Dios[2]. Para …

    Top Middle East intel official says Mossad behind killing of Syrian rocket chief-New York Times quotes senior figure from intelligence agency in the region; Israeli cabinet minister refuses to comment on report but says it's a 'good thing' Aziz Azbar is dead-By TOI staff and Agencies-AUG 8,18

    A senior official from a Middle East intelligence agency has pointed the finger at Israel’s Mossad for the killing of  a top Syrian chemical weapons and rocket scientist over the weekend, The New York Times reported Tuesday, reinforcing accusations from Syria.Aziz Azbar was killed when his car exploded in the northern city of Masyaf late Saturday night. The unnamed official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the paper  that Israel was behind the attack and said his own intelligence agency had been informed of the Israeli operation.A senior Israeli government official declined to comment on the report Tuesday, but noted it was “a good thing” that Azbar was dead.A pro-government Syrian paper on Sunday had accused the Mossad of being behind the hit. Azbar’s driver was also killed in the blast.According to the report, Israel believed that Azbar was leading a classified weapons development program called Sector 4 at the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center, and was busy re-building an underground weapons factory to replace the one said destroyed by Israel last year.Azbar was working alongside Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ elite al-Quds Force and enjoyed high-level access to both the Syrian and Iranian governments, the New York Times said.Azbar and his team were working to begin mass-producing precision-guided missiles by retrofitting SM600 Tishreen rockets. They were also working on a solid-fuel plant for missiles and rockets, a safer alternative to liquid fuel, the report said. The Tishreen is a Syrian version of the Iranian Fateh-110, a missile with a range of 200 kilomenters (125 miles.) On Sunday the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the Syria war through local contacts, also reported Azbar’s death. It said he specialized in developing rocket systems at the center’s Masyaf facility in Hama.Israel’s Hadashot TV news said Sunday night he was in charge of a project improving the range and accuracy of the regime’s Scud missiles. Reports have also indicated an Iranian missile operation at the site.The intelligence official also told The New York Times that Azbar had for years been active in the Assad regime’s chemical-weapons production program and was also involved in coordinating Iranian and Hezbollah activities in Syria.The Scientific Research and Studies Center in Masyaf, also known by its French acronym CERS, has long been associated with chemical weapons production, and was the target of a number of airstrikes attributed to Israel. An alleged Israeli strike on the site in April reportedly killed a number of Iranian soldiers.The official quoted in The New York Times Tuesday said that Israel had been tracking Azbar for years, and had wanted to assassinate him over his prominent role in Syria’s weapons program even before the outbreak of the Syrian civil war in 2011. He said it was the fourth time in three years the Mossad has assassinated an enemy weapons engineer in a foreign country.Israel has been blamed for the killing of several scientists in recent years, including two Hamas engineers in the last 18 months.A Hamas rocket scientist was shot dead by gunmen in Malaysia in April and a drone engineer was killed in Tunisia in December 2016. Hamas blamed the Mossad for both deaths.Israel does not usually comment on reports of its alleged military operations in Syria but has repeatedly warned it would work to keep advanced weapons out of Hezbollah terrorists’ hands and has vowed to stop Iran establishing a military presence in the country.On Tuesday, Gilad Erdan who heads the Public Security and Strategic Affairs ministries declined to comment on Israel’s involvement in Azbar’s killing, but said it was “a good thing” that he was dead.“We obviously do not comment on these kinds of reports — neither confirming nor denying them — but we can talk about the man himself, who was responsible for putting high quality weapons in the hands of some bad people, and so we can say that the fact he is no longer with us is a good thing,” he told Israel Radio when asked about the New York Times report.Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Sunday sought to downplay the possibility of Israeli involvement.“Every day in the Middle East there are hundreds of explosions and settling of scores. Every time they try to place the blame on us. So we won’t take this too seriously,” he told Hadashot News.An insurgent group calling itself the Abu Amara Brigades claimed responsibility for the operation. The group has previously claimed attacks targeting officials and militia commanders inside government territory.In April 2017, the Trump administration placed sanctions on hundreds of CERS employees following a chemical attack on the Syrian rebel-held city of Khan Sheikhoun that killed dozens of civilians, including children.Another CERS facility near Damascus was bombed by US, British and French forces in April after another chemical attack.The Syrian regime has been accused of dozens of gas attacks that have killed hundreds of civilians during the war, even after it said it was giving up its stockpile.

    Israeli minister says ‘good chance’ Iran will renegotiate nuclear deal-Gilad Erdan slams 'morally bankrupt' EU for trying to salvage accord; Israeli intelligence community said optimistic that new sanctions will force major change in Tehran-By TOI staff-AUG 8,18

    Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan on Tuesday praised the US for reimposing tough sanctions on Iran that brought back into effect the harsh penalties lifted under the Iran nuclear deal.“It would be better if the Iranian regime would disappear entirely from this world, but it would also be a blessing to see Obama’s bad nuclear agreement replaced with a better one,” he told Israel Radio. US President Donald Trump abandoned the deal in May.“In my opinion, there is a good chance of that,” said Erdan, who also heads the Strategic Affairs Ministry. “We can already see positive results from what Trump did.”Erdan criticized the European Union for trying to salvage the deal by ensuring that economic benefits guaranteed under the 2015 accord continue to flow to the country.“The EU is morally bankrupt, and we need to remember that next time they try to lecture us,” Erdan said. The EU, along with China, Russia, France, Germany and the UK, was also a signatory to the deal and has not withdrawn.In Israel, the reimposition of US sanctions was lauded as a historic turning point that could ultimately lead to the Islamic Republic’s downfall.On Tuesday, Israel Radio quoted an unnamed senior official who said the Israeli intelligence community was optimistic the sanctions would lead to major changes in Iran and force Tehran to renegotiate the deal.“We would like to see a change in policy, but there is no way of knowing how long that will take,” the official said.“The only hammer available right now is economic, and using that, there is a good change Iran will fall to its knees,” he said. “Right now Iran is weak and hysterical.”The new sanctions on Iran took effect just after midnight in Washington on Tuesday as part of Trump’s withdrawal from the international accord designed to limit Iran’s nuclear program.Trump signed an executive order restoring the penalties on Monday, which he said would put “maximum economic pressure” on the country. The sanctions affect financial transactions that involve US dollars, Iran’s automotive sector, the purchase of commercial planes and metals including gold.A second batch of US sanctions targeting Iran’s oil sector and central bank are to be reimposed in early November.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trump for ratcheting up pressure on the Islamic Republic, and called on European nations to follow his lead.“It symbolizes the determination to curb Iran’s regional aggression and its ongoing plans to arm itself with nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said in a video released Monday.On Monday, the European Union’s diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini said the bloc, as well as Britain, France and Germany, deeply regretted Washington’s move.“We are determined to protect European economic operators engaged in legitimate business with Iran,” she said in a statement.Many large European firms are leaving Iran for fear of US penalties, and Trump warned of “severe consequences” against firms and individuals that continued to do business with Iran.The impact of the return of sanctions has ramped up tensions inside Iran, which has seen days of protests and strikes in multiple towns and cities over water shortages, high prices and wider anger at the political system.Severe reporting restrictions have made it impossible to verify the swirl of claims coming through social media.Agencies contributed to this report.

    Fresh US sanctions on Iran kick in as clock hits midnight-Reimposition of economic restrictions as part of Trump's withdrawal from nuclear deal met with cheers in Jerusalem, jeers in Tehran and Europe-By TOI staff-AUG 8,18

    New US sanctions on Iran took effect just after midnight in Washington on Tuesday as part of President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the international accord meant to limit the Iranian nuclear program.On Monday, Trump signed an executive order restoring sanctions on Iran, which he said would would put “maximum economic pressure” on the country. He also held out hope for new negotiations between Iran and the United States that would result in another, more wide-ranging, accord.The new sanctions target Iran’s automotive sector and trade in gold and precious metals. They come ahead of even more biting sanctions set to be introduced on November 5 against the country’s energy and banking sectors.While cheered by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other senior Israeli officials, the reimposition of US sanctions was bemoaned by the nuclear deal’s European signatories and the EU, who defended the accord and vowed to protect European firms from US economic penalties.In a White House statement announcing the sanctions, Trump repeated his criticisms of the deal, and argued that Iran’s behavior since the pact was implemented has vindicated his long-held position.“The JCPOA, a horrible, one-sided deal, failed to achieve the fundamental objective of blocking all paths to an Iranian nuclear bomb, and it threw a lifeline of cash to a murderous dictatorship that has continued to spread bloodshed, violence, and chaos,” Trump said.“Since the deal was reached, Iran’s aggression has only increased. The regime has used the windfall of newly accessible funds it received under the JCPOA to build nuclear-capable missiles, fund terrorism, and fuel conflict across the Middle East and beyond.”Following Trump’s announced US departure from the deal in May, the White House has, through 17 rounds, sanctioned 38 Iran-related targets.The objective, the administration has indicated, is to change Iranian behavior.“Reimposition of nuclear-related sanctions through today’s actions further intensifies pressure on Tehran to change its conduct,” Trump said Monday.In May, Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal forged under the Obama administration and with five other world powers, a move that set in motion a renewal of sanctions against Iran that had been removed once the landmark accord was implemented in January 2016.In Israel, the reimposition of US sanctions was lauded as a historic turning point that could ultimately lead to the Islamic Republic’s downfall, with senior officials calling on other countries to follow suit.“It symbolizes the determination to curb Iran’s regional aggression and its ongoing plans to arm itself with nuclear weapons,” said Netanyahu in a video released Monday, moments after Trump signed new sanctions into law.Jerusalem’s warm embrace of the US sanctions in Iran stood in stark contrast to the European Union, which said it would move to protect countries that remain in Iran.“We deeply regret the re-imposition of sanctions by the US, due to the latter’s withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA),” the union’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, and the foreign ministers of the UK, France and Germany said in a joint statement, using the nuclear deal’s technical name.“The JCPOA is working and delivering on its goal, namely to ensure that the Iranian program remains exclusively peaceful,” the statement went on. “It is a key element of the global nuclear non-proliferation architecture, crucial for the security of Europe, the region, and the entire world.”The European Commission vowed to oppose the new US sanctions regime, updating its so-called Blocking Statute that is aimed at “sustaining trade and economic relations between the EU and Iran.”In Tehran, President Hassan Rouhani rejected Trump’s call for renewed negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program, saying it was a statement intended only for American audiences and to foment chaos in Iran.In a televised interview, he said “Negotiations with sanctions doesn’t make sense. They are imposing sanctions on Iranian children, patients and the nation.” He was referring to fears that essential supplies such as medicines would be affected when sanctions return.He said Iran had “always welcomed negotiations,” but that Washington would first have to demonstrate it can be trusted.“If you’re an enemy and you stab the other person with a knife and then you say you want negotiations, then the first thing you have to do is remove the knife.”“How do they show they are trustworthy? By returning to the JCPOA,” he said, using the technical name for the 2015 nuclear deal.Rouhani fell back on the rhetoric of many of his predecessors by referencing the 1953 CIA-backed coup that overthrew Iran’s elected prime minister and cemented the shah’s rule.“I have no pre-conditions” for negotiating with America “if the US government is ready to negotiate about paying compensation to the Iranian nation from 1953 until now,” Rouhani said. “The US owes the Iranian nation for its intervention in Iran.Two weeks ago, Trump indicated that he was willing to meet with Iran’s leaders at any time and without any preconditions.“I would certainly meet with Iran if they’re ready to meet,” Trump said during a White House press conference, adding that he was willing to do so with “no preconditions.”The week before, Trump tweeted at Rouhani that Iran would “suffer consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before,” in a dramatic all-caps tweet.To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2018-His tweet was ostensibly a response to a speech Rouhani gave the night before in which he threatened that the United States would experience the “mother of all wars” if it entered into an armed confrontation with Iran.Agencies contributed to this report.

    2 officers dismissed from elite army unit after training accidents-After 2 Maglan soldiers injured in separate incidents, IDF says it is 'unacceptable and unprofessional to unnecessarily endanger' troops during training-By TOI staff-AUG 8,18

    The Israel Defense Forces announced on Monday the dismissal of two officers from an elite commando unit following a pair of recent training accidents in which soldiers were injured.Additionally, the commander of the platoon in which the officers served was reprimanded, the IDF said in a statement summarizing the investigation into the incidents led by Brig. Gen. Yaron Finkelman, head of the 98th Paratroopers Division.In one of the instances, a soldier from the Maglan unit was seriously injured during a training exercise while jumping from a moving vehicle into a thorn bush, according to the army.The soldier’s commander, who the army named only as First Lieutenant Y., was removed as a result of the incident. Finkelman also ordered a halt to all training exercises in the Commando Brigade until the investigation’s recommendations are implemented and the unit’s training files are reviewed.“The division commander determined this action was improper, unprofessional, immoral, dangerous and unnecessary,” the IDF said.In the second incident a soldier was moderately wounded during Krav Maga exercises but did not receive medical treatment immediately after. The army said the injury occurred during a Krav Maga demonstration in which protective equipment was not used.The IDF said the soldier’s commander, First Lieutenant G., was removed for “acting erroneously during the [Krav Maga] training and acted negligently by not sending the soldier for treatment.”Krav Maga exercises have been put on hold in the Commando Brigade until commanders and instructors undergo a “refresher” of the training commands, the army said. New mechanisms for oversight and approval of Krav Maga training in the brigade will also be introduced, the IDF added.The army said the findings of the investigation would be given to the Military Advocate General to decide whether to open a Military Police investigation. It also said commanders were in touch with the families of the injured soldiers.“The IDF takes risks in the face of the enemy as required to fulfill its operational duties,” the army said. “It is unacceptable and unprofessional to unnecessarily endanger soldiers during training and routine activities.”Parents of soldiers in the unit claimed to the Ynet news site earlier this week that routine training for the soldiers regularly crossed the threshold into violence. They also complained of the secrecy surrounding the activities of the unit, and said they relied on the officers and commanders to keep their children safe.Maglan is a special elite unit that operates behind enemy lines. The unit’s 18 months of training is among the most strenuous in the IDF.

    Firefighters battling 122 active forest fires across northern Ontario-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 8, 2018

    TORONTO — There was little rest for firefighters in northern Ontario during the long weekend as they continued battling flames on numerous fire lines.The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources says there were 122 active fires as of Monday night, including 78 in the northwest region and 44 in the northeast.Eighteen fires in the northeast and seven in the northwest were classified as out of control.The largest fire in the northeast, "Parry Sound 33," covers about 113 square kilometres and remains out of control. Officials say "extremely dry fuel conditions remain" despite the area receiving about 10 millimetres of rain on Monday.An evacuation order for residents of several communities in the French River area remain in effect and numerous travel restrictions remain in force.Another large fire dubbed "North Bay 72" about 30 kilometres west of Temiskaming Shores remains out of control. That blaze began on July 8 and was being held at about 272 square kilometres.The ministry says there have been 918 forest fires so far this year compared to 354 in 2017.The Canadian Press.

    Health care workers ask Tories to stop repeal of sex-ed curriculum-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 8, 2018

    TORONTO — Nearly 1,800 health-care workers from across the province are asking the Tory government to stop plans to repeal and replace Ontario's modernized sex-ed curriculum.The group of doctors, nurses and social workers signed a petition that was delivered to the provincial legislature today by NDP Leader Andrea Horwath.Premier Doug Ford had long promised to scrap the sex-ed curriculum updated by his Liberal predecessors, and has said the government will engage in a province-wide consultation to create a new lesson plan.The government has said teachers will use a 1998 version of the curriculum this fall as those consultations are underway.The group of health-care workers who signed the petition says repealing the curriculum will put children's safety and mental health at risk by providing them with outdated information.In addition to individual workers, groups including the Registered Nurses of Ontario, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Ontario Association of Social Workers have signed the petition.The Canadian Press.

    Largest wildfire in California history to burn for rest of August-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-By Dan Whitcomb-August 8, 2018

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - California's biggest wildfire on record was expected to burn for the rest of the month, fire officials said on Tuesday, as hot and windy conditions challenged thousands of fire crews battling eight major blazes burning out of control across the state.The Mendocino Complex grew to span 290,692 acres (117,639 hectares) by Tuesday morning, with barely a third of it contained since two wildfires merged at the southern tip of the Mendocino National Forest, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) said.It is the largest of eight major fires burning out of control across California, prompting U.S. President Donald Trump to declare a "major disaster" in the state.The size of the fire has surpassed that of last year's Thomas Fire, which burned 281,893 acres in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties and destroyed more than 1,000 structures.Nearly half of the ten largest California wildfires on record occurred in the last decade.The Mendocino Complex has burnt 75 homes and forced the evacuation of thousands of people. Fire officials had hoped to extinguish the fire by mid-August, but pushed that date to early September on Tuesday.Temperatures could reach 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 Celsius) in Northern California over the next few days, with gusty winds fanning the flames of the complex, a National Weather Service meteorologist said.The 3,900 personnel battling the Mendocino Complex on Monday were focusing on keeping flames from breaking through fire lines on a ridge above the foothill communities of Nice, Lucerne, Glen Haven, and Clearlake Oaks, said Tricia Austin, a spokeswoman for Cal Fire.Elsewhere in California, evacuations were ordered for cabins in Cleveland National Forest's canyons in Orange County on Monday afternoon, after a blaze broke out to quickly engulf 700 acres (283 hectares).The Carr Fire, which has torched 167,000 acres in the scenic Shasta-Trinity region north of Sacramento since breaking out on July 23, was 47 percent contained.The Carr Fire has been blamed for seven deaths, including that of a 21-year-old Pacific Gas and Electric Company lineman Jay Ayeta. The company said on Sunday he was killed in a vehicle crash as he worked with crews in dangerous terrain."California wildfires are being magnified and made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren't allowing massive amount of readily available water to be properly utilized," Trump wrote on Twitter, without providing supporting evidence.A Cal Fire spokesman declined to comment on Trump's claims but said crews did not lack water to fight the flames.Environmental activists and some politicians say the intensity of the state's wildfire season could be linked in part to climate change.(Additional reporting by Brendan O'Brien in Milwaukee; Editing by Raissa Kasolowsky and Bernadette Baum)

    Amnesty International calls for united front against Saudi Arabia-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 8, 2018

    MONTREAL — Amnesty International says the global community should form a united front with Canada and speak out to protect two recently arrested women, including the sister of jailed blogger Raif Badawi.Genevieve Paul, the director of Amnesty's francophone branch, points out that pressure is put on the Saudi government when news of such arrests becomes public."I don't think it will worsen the situation because very often when we make evident unjust imprisonments, like the case of Samar Badawi, that increases their protection and increases pressure on the government," she said in an interview Monday.Amnesty International has said Badawi's sister was recently detained along with Nassima al-Sada, another prominent female activist.Paul pointed to the case of Raif Badawi as an example of how putting international pressure on the Saudis can have an impact."He was sentenced to 1,000 lashes and 10 years in prison, he received 50 lashes in 2015 and he could receive others, but he hasn't," she said."We do believe that this is because of continuous pressure and visibility on Raif's case so we're really hoping that more states speak out on Samar Badawi and all other activists."Paul stressed the situation is worse when the government does what it wants in secret and is not singled out for alleged human rights violations. "Clearly the aggressive reaction of the Saudi government shows that it's been disturbed," she added.Saudi Arabia said Sunday it was ordering Canada's ambassador to leave the country and freezing all new trade and investment transactions with Canada in a spat over human rights.The Islamic Kingdom made the decision in retaliation to a Global Affairs Canada's tweet that expressed concerns about the arrests of civil society and women's rights activists in the country, such as Samar Badawi.Paul said the Saudi government knows there are serious human rights violations in the country."It shows the real colours of the regime, and the international community should toughen its tone against the Saudi government," she said.The Amnesty spokeswoman noted a ban on women drivers was lifted in June, but that a number of activists who campaigned for the right to drive were arrested and face up to 20 years in prison."That's proof there's double talk, it's proof that there is no real reform in the country," she said. "On the contrary, the repression has intensified." She reiterated that Ottawa should suspend the sale of armoured vehicles to the Saudis, claiming that Amnesty still has strong reasons to believe they are being used in Yemen to commit serious human rights violations."We've been saying that without a serious human rights evaluation, we should not be transferring any military aid, any arms to Saudi Arabia," Paul said.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Monday the Canadian government will continue to raise its voice and defend human rights."We will always speak up for human rights, we will always speak up for women's rights around the world," she told reporters in Vancouver. "The most important thing for us is the life and the living conditions of activists."Ensaf Haidar, Raif Badawi's wife, who lives in Quebec with her three children, said Monday she was surprised when she heard about the two new arrests.Haidar and her children became Canadian citizens on Canada Day.Freeland also said Haidar and her family merit special attention from the government of Canada, adding, "a lot of Canadian civil society has been speaking up for her.""It's something that we do," Freeland said. "We stand up for Canadians and their families around the world."Peter Rakobowchuk , The Canadian Press.

    For God or party? China's Christians face test of faith-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-August 8, 2018

    NANYANG, China — The 62-year-old Chinese shopkeeper had waited nearly his entire adult life to see his dream of building a church come true — a brick house with a sunny courtyard and spacious hall with room for 200 believers.But in March, about a dozen police officers and local officials suddenly showed up at the church on his property and made the frightened congregants disperse. They ordered that the cross, a painting of the Last Supper and Bible verse calligraphy be taken down. And they demanded that all services stop until each person, along with the church itself, was registered with the government, said the shopkeeper, Guo.Without warning, Guo and his neighbours in China's Christian heartland province of Henan had found themselves on the front lines of an ambitious new effort by the officially atheist ruling Communist Party to dictate — and in some cases displace — the practice of faith in the country."I've always prayed for our country's leaders, for our country to get stronger," said Guo, who gave only his last name out of fear of government retribution. "They were never this severe before, not since I started going to church in the 80's. Why are they telling us to stop now?"Under President Xi Jinping, China's most powerful leader since Mao Zedong, believers are seeing their freedoms shrink dramatically even as the country undergoes a religious revival. Experts and activists say that as he consolidates his power, Xi is waging the most severe systematic suppression of Christianity in the country since religious freedom was written into the Chinese constitution in 1982.The crackdown on Christianity is part of a broader push by Xi to "Sinicize" all the nation's religions by infusing them with "Chinese characteristics" such as loyalty to the Communist Party. Islamic crescents and domes have been stripped from mosques, and a campaign launched to "re-educate" tens of thousands of Uighur Muslims. Tibetan children have been moved from Buddhist temples to schools and banned from religious activities during their summer holidays, state-run media report.This spring, a five-year plan to "Sinicize" Christianity in particular was introduced, along with new rules on religious affairs. Over the last several months, local governments across the country have shut down hundreds of private Christian "house churches." A statement last week from 47 in Beijing alone said they had faced "unprecedented" harassment since February.Authorities have also seized Bibles, while major e-commerce retailers JD.com and Taobao pulled them off their sites. Children and party members are banned from churches in some areas, and at least one township has encouraged Christians to replace posters of Jesus with portraits of Xi. Some Christians have resorted to holding services in secret.A dozen Chinese Protestants interviewed by the Associated Press described gatherings that were raided, interrogations and surveillance, and one pastor said hundreds of his congregants were questioned individually about their faith. Like Guo, the majority requested that their names be partly or fully withheld because they feared punishment from authorities. After reporters visited Henan in June, some interviewees said they were contacted by police or local officials who urged them not to discuss any new measures around Christianity.The party has long been wary of Christianity because of its affiliation with Western political values. Several Chinese human rights lawyers jailed for their work, including Jiang Tianyong and Li Heping, are outspoken Christians. So too are many Hong Kong pro-democracy activists, not least among them 2014 protest leader Joshua Wong."Chinese leaders have always been suspicious of the political challenge or threat that Christianity poses to the Communist regime," said Xi Lian, a scholar of Christianity in China at Duke University. "Under Xi, this fear of Western infiltration has intensified and gained a prominence that we haven't seen for a long time."___Guo, who keeps a small storefront selling ornate doors in a riverside district, once had eyesight so poor that he could not distinguish the sky from the earth. But after finding God at 27 years old, he made a seemingly miraculous recovery that he attributes to his faith.For decades, he, like many Christians in China, shuttled from one unregistered house church to another, where folding chairs served as pews and coffee tables as lecterns. Two years ago, he and 10 other Christians pooled their money to erect a permanent church on his property.They are part of what experts describe as a spiritual awakening in China.The number of Chinese believers of all faiths has doubled in two decades to an estimated 200 million, by official count, as the hold of the Communist party has weakened. Among them are an estimated 67 million Christians, including Catholics — a number that is expected to swell to become the world's largest Christian population in a matter of decades. This rapid growth has reinvigorated the party's longtime mission to domesticate a religion traditionally aligned with the West.Historians believe that Christianity was known to China as early as the seventh century, and was later propagated by Jesuit missionaries starting in the 1500s. In recent decades the religion has faced by turns heavy persecution and tacit acceptance.During the Cultural Revolution, when Mao sought to eradicate all religions, Christians were jailed, tortured and publicly humiliated. But they survived by operating covertly and grew steadily in number after Mao's death in 1976, when a populace disillusioned with the Communist Party began to seek moral guidance elsewhere.Chinese Christians say the Bible gives them a sense of right versus wrong and the strength to endure in a country where power often trumps justice. While China's rapid growth has brought prosperity to many, others despair at what they see as a deterioration of public morals. The deaths of children in scandals involving tainted infant formula and shoddily-built schools in recent years have led to the sense that modern China was in the midst of an ethical crisis."After the 'collapse' of communist ideology, no value system has been in place to fill the spiritual vacuum," said writer Zhang Lijia. "China has witnessed a religious revival in recent decades precisely because of this vacuum and relaxed control."Officials once largely tolerated the unregistered Protestant house churches that sprang up independent of the official Christian Council, clamping down on some while allowing others to grow. But this year they have taken a tougher approach that relies partly on "thought reform" — a phrase for political indoctrination. Last November, Christian residents of a rural township in southeast Jiangxi province were persuaded to replace posters of the cross and Jesus Christ inside their homes with portraits of Xi, a local official said."Through our thought reform, they've voluntarily done it," Qi Yan, a member of the township party committee, told the AP by phone. "The move is aimed at Christian families in poverty, and we educated them to believe in science and not in superstition, making them believe in the party."The poster campaign appears to symbolize what analysts see as the underlying force driving the change in the party's approach to religion: the ascendance of Xi."Xi is a closet Maoist — he is very anxious about thought control," said Willy Lam, a Chinese politics expert at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. "He definitely does not want people to be faithful members of the church, because then people would profess their allegiance to the church rather than to the party, or more exactly, to Xi himself."Various state and local officials declined repeated requests to comment. But in 2016, Xi explicitly warned against the perceived foreign threats tied to faith, telling a religion conference: "We must resolutely guard against overseas infiltrations via religious means." And in April, the religious affairs department published an article saying that churches must endorse the party's leadership as part of "Sinicization.""Only Sinicized churches can obtain God's love," the article stated.The government is even cracking down on Christians more aggressively through legal means. In March, a prominent Chinese house church leader with US permanent residency was sentenced to seven years in prison after he built Christian schools in Myanmar. And half a dozen Christians were sentenced last month to up to 13 years in jail for involvement in a "cult," according to U.S.-based Christian non-profit ChinaAid.The pressure has pushed several dozen pastors and their families to flee to the United States in recent years, ChinaAid says. The wife of one pastor under house arrest left for Midland, Texas about a year ago, after authorities warned that their children might have trouble getting an education in China. She said members of their church in China were barred from being baptized, and even a simple Christmas service was interrupted."The government says that we have religious freedom, but really there is no freedom at all," said the pastor's wife, who asked to remain anonymous for her husband's safety. "Many of our Christian brothers and sisters are upset and fearful."Those who resist pay the price.After Jin Mingri, a prominent pastor who leads Zion Church in Beijing, refused local authorities' request to install surveillance cameras inside his house church, police individually questioned hundreds of members of the 1,500-person congregation, he said. The congregants faced veiled threats, Jin said, and many were asked to sign a pledge promising to leave Zion, which the government agents called illegal, politically incorrect and a cult. Some people lost their jobs or were evicted from rented apartments because police intimidated their bosses and landlords.For 11 years, the church has been housed on one floor of an office building, but the property management informed Jin in May that they would have to move out at the end of the summer. Jin said the management admitted to being influenced by external "pressures.""A lot of our flock are terrified by the pressure that the government is putting on them," he said. "It's painful to think that in our own country's capital, we must pay so dearly just to practice our faith."__At the epicenter of the drive to control the Christian community in China is Henan, the cradle of Chinese civilization and the entry point for many of the earliest foreign missionaries. Today, the province is one of the most populous in the country and a key part of Xi's fight against poverty, as proclaimed by red banners across acres of peanut farms and oil fields.Around the time authorities ordered Guo's church to stop congregating in March, his district announced a crackdown on private Christian meeting spots. On a single Sunday morning, the announcement said, 700 religious banners were removed, 200 religious texts seized and 31 illegal Christian gathering places shut down. Officials went door-to-door stripping decorative scrolls bearing the cross from home entrances.In Zhengzhou, Henan's capital, all that is left of one house church is shattered glass, tangled wires and torn hymnbooks, strewn among the rubble of a knocked-down wall. Pegged to another wall is a single wooden cross, still intact.The church inside a commercial building had served about 100 believers for years. But in late January, nearly 60 officials from the local religion department and police station appeared without warning. Armed with electric saws, they demolished the church, confiscated Bibles and computers and held a handful of young worshippers — including a 14-year-old girl — at a police station for more than 10 hours, according to a church leader.The authorities called the church illegal. The church leader said they had brought documentation to the religion department three or four times in an attempt to formally register it, but never received a response. Now, they have ceased to congregate.The church leader prays that the government will change its mind."We support President Xi," he said. "All we ask for is a space for our faith."That space for Xu Shijuan, a 63-year-old Seventh-Day Adventist, was her living room, where she held house church gatherings for four years. She stopped in March, after a group of men led by a local official ordered her to disband the meeting of about two dozen elderly Christians."If you don't heed our orders, the next group to come will be law enforcement," he said, according to Xu. "They will use force to disband you."Xu readily complied. "The people have dispersed, but our faith has not," she told the AP at her home in Zhengzhou. "God's path cannot be blocked. The more you try to control it, the more it will grow."Even Protestant churches already registered with the state have not been spared greater restrictions. When reporters visited five such churches in Henan this June, all bore notices at their entrances stating that minors and party members were not allowed inside. A banner above one church door exhorted members to "implement the basic direction of the party's religious work." Another church erected a Chinese flag at the foot of its steps.Some congregations now sing the national anthem during services, according to a house church pastor named Liu. Another pastor said his government-approved church shut down its Sunday school and cancelled all activities for children after receiving orders in February.Across Henan, house churches that once hosted gatherings of hundreds have now sealed their doors and split into groups of no more than a handful. Services are announced last-minute and held in different locations each week, often under the cloak of darkness.For a time, Guo's church did the same. They avoided congregating on Sundays to escape authorities' notice.But the church members were scared, and the group dwindled to 30. Authorities appealed to Guo to help gather information on his fellow Christians. He was given a form, reviewed by the AP, which asked for churchgoers' names, educational background and addresses, as well as the length of time they had been faithful and whether they were baptized.The brick house was largely deserted this summer. Around the door frame, tattered red outlines remained of a scroll that once read "God's love is as deep as the sea."Inside, Guo has refused to remove the cross and other decorations, telling authorities they are within his private property.Among them, pinned to a wall in the nave, is a bright blue poster that quotes China's constitutional promise of religious freedom.__AP writer Brian Skoloff contributed to this report from Midland, Texas.__Follow Yanan Wang on Twitter at https://twitter.com/yananw.Yanan Wang, The Associated Press.

    Russia warns of 'horrible' conflict if Georgia joins NATO-[Associated Press]-YAHOONEWS-VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV-August 8, 2018

    MOSCOW (AP) — An attempt by NATO to incorporate the former Soviet republic of Georgia could trigger a new, "horrible" conflict, Russia's prime minister said Tuesday in a stern warning to the West marking 10 years since the Russia-Georgia war.Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with the Kommersant daily broadcast by Russian state television that NATO's plans to eventually offer membership to Georgia are "absolutely irresponsible" and a "threat to peace."Medvedev was Russia's president during the August 2008 war, which erupted when Georgian troops tried unsuccessfully to regain control over the Moscow-backed breakaway province of South Ossetia and Russia sent troops that routed the Georgian military in five days of fighting.The Russian army was poised to advance on the Georgian capital, but Medvedev rolled it back, accepting a truce mediated by the European Union.After the war, Georgia entirely lost control of both South Ossetia and another separatist region, Abkhazia. Russia has strengthened its military presence in both regions and recognized them as independent states, but only a few countries have followed suit.The European Union on Tuesday reiterated its "firm support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders" and lamented the Russian military presence in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.In a show of support for Georgia, foreign ministers of Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, and a Cabinet member from Ukraine, visited Tbilisi Tuesday, urging Russia to withdraw its troops from Abkhazia and South Ossetia. "Nowadays no country can change the borders of another country by force," said Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz.Russian-Georgian relations have improved since the war, but the issue of the breakaway regions remains, preventing the full normalization of ties.Medvedev warned that NATO's attempt to embrace Georgia could have catastrophic consequences."There is an unresolved territorial conflict ... and would they bring such a country into the military alliance?" he said. "Do they understand the possible implications? It could provoke a horrible conflict."Medvedev pointed to Moscow's recognition of independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia and the Russian military bases there, saying that any attempt to change the status quo could lead to "extremely grave consequences." ''I hope that NATO's leadership will be smart enough not to take any steps in that direction," he said.The Russian prime minister described NATO's eastward expansion as a major security threat to Russia."Whatever our colleagues from the alliance may say, NATO countries see Russia as a potential enemy," he said. "We can't help getting worried when the circle around our country keeps narrowing as more and more countries join NATO. NATO's expansion clearly poses a threat to the Russian Federation."

    Daily News Links Are Below These Opening Questions And Warnings
    How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

    Did you know that many people do not measure the air they breathe.

    After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
    Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

    Are you in the know?

    Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

    There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own.

    There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.


    The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm

    Standard for Single and Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Alarms
    UL 2034
    1.3 Carbon monoxide alarms covered by this standard are not intended to alarm when exposed to long-term, low-level carbon monoxide exposures or slightly higher short-term transient carbon monoxide exposures, possibly caused by air pollution and/or properly installed/maintained fuel-fired appliances and fireplaces…

    Carbon monoxide poisoning nearly kills Kokomo residents

    Fire Chief Jason Gunning said when responders arrived, they learned the two residents there had been operating a gas generator in the basement after a vehicle crashed into a utility pole and around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and knocked out the electricity to the house. - Gunning said the toxic air caused a woman at the residence to pass out on top of the stairs after coming up from the basement. A man there also reported feeling woozy, but was able to crawl out the back door and then re-enter the house through the front door to drag out the woman. (More to Read)

    We have all been CO poisoned, some more than others
    The following link takes you to a site with views from those who have been poisoned. The seriousness of carbon monoxide poisoning, the grief, suffering and disorientations experienced are clearly portrayed with the intent to help others and prevent future poisonings. With respect, please visit: Carbon Monoxide Survivor

    What is in the air you are breathing right now?

    What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
    Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
    You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning.
    We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
    Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

    Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

    Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

    You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

    Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

    Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn. GET BUSY

    U.S. Carbon Monoxide Laws for each state
    National Conference of State Legislatures
    As of March 2018, a majority of states have enacted statutes regarding carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, and another 11 have promulgated regulations on CO detectors. Alaska requires detectors approved by the state fire marshal be installed in all dwellings. Connecticut requires them in all new construction, as does New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. Florida also requires them in new construction, and in every room with a boiler. Minnesota passed a law requiring detectors in motor boats.

    CO Detectors in U.S. Homes
    27 states and the District of Columbia require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings via state statute: Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia (via adoption of the International Residential Code), Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Certain states limit the installation to buildings with fossil-fuel burning devices, others only require the device be installed upon the sale of the property or unit.

    Another 11 states require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings regulatorily through the adoption of the International Residential Code or via an amendment to their state’s building code: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wyoming.

    CO Detectors in U.S. Schools
    California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine and Maryland require carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in school buildings.

    CO Detectors in U.S. Hotels and Motels
    Fourteen states require the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in hotels and motels under the statute. - Three of those states (New Jersey, Vermont and Wisconsin) have complementary administrative regulations. - Two states (Kansas and Washington) have requirements through administrative regulations alone.

    The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




    A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
    B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
    C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
    D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
    E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
    F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

    Quote: "Intermountain Gas has received more than 100 calls reporting a gas odor in and around Kuna, according to the Kuna Fire Department. The cause of the odor has not been determined yet. The Kuna Fire Department first received reports of the gas odor at 6 a.m. Monday. Intermountain Gas investigated and found there were no breaches or leaks in their system. By 1 p.m. Monday, the smell had gone away, but reports started again around 3 a.m. Tuesday and lasted until 11 a.m."

    Quote: "Intermountain Gas technicians have responded to roughly 100 calls about a natural gas-like odor."

    Quote: "In a statement issued Wednesday afternoon, The L & R Group said results from a third-party tester to determine if its facility is the source of the smell have been inconclusive. The company also said: 'While our facility does produce odors under certain conditions, we have never had any complaints of smell outside a two-mile radius of our facility. Based on historical information it is unlikely that the smell at our facility is traveling as much as twenty miles, as reported by some.'"

    Note: So some people wanna blame a wastewater pond, but independent testing has been unable to verify that, and the company who owns the pond thinks that it's unlikely any odor from their pond could travel 20 miles. So, back to rotten egg odor from unknown source...

    Quote: "A group of leading climate scientists warned in an article published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that the Earth is at risk of being driven into 'hothouse' state from which it cannot recover."

    Note: That's not a risk, it's a certainty. Enough self-reinforcing feedbacks have ALREADY been activated that the Earth entering a hothouse state is unavoidable - we are irrelevant now, and soon enough we'll be eradicated too. Extinction incoming...

    2018-08-07 - Warming Earth causing plants, trees and soil to absorb less methane:

    http://www.earth.com/news/climate-change-forests-methane/

    Quote: "Trees, plants and soil play a vital role in absorbing and preventing many of the greenhouse gases responsible for global warming from entering the earth's atmosphere. But a new paper from researchers at the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York finds that the existing effects of global warming are decreasing the soil's ability to absorb methane gas--one of the major drivers of global temperature increases--and creating a positive feedback loop between the effects of global warming and the variables that cause it."

    Note: And there's yet another self-reinforcing feedback. As the world warms, the plants, trees and soil absorb less methane, so more methane accumulates in the atmosphere, which causes more warming, which causes less methane to be absorbed AND causes more methane to be released, which causes more methane to accumulate in the atmosphere, etc, etc. This is only one of the degrading methane sinks. Another big methane sink involves hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere, and the amount of hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere is also in decline...

    2018-08-07 - Atmospheric methane levels hit a peak of 3046 ppb:

    Quote: "On the morning of August 6, 2018, mean global methane levels were as high as 1896 ppb at 293 mb. More importantly, peak levels that afternoon were as high as 3046 ppb, as illustrated by the image."

    Note: Methane is a lighter-than-air gas, so it tends to accumulate in the upper atmosphere, and it's highly flammable. One has to expect that to have some effect on planes...

    Quote: "A plane made an emergency landing at New York's Kennedy Airport after reports of smoke in the cockpit. Officials say United Airlines Flight 4697 from Washington to Providence, Rhode Island was diverted about 2 p.m. Tuesday. About 50 people were evacuated from the twin-engine Embraer ERJ-145 regional jet and bused to a terminal."

    Note: This is the 132nd aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2018. In all of 2017, 116 planes came down smoking or burning or exploded, so we're already well past that count, with nearly five months to go in the year. The number of planes coming down smoking or burning is rising, even as the amount of flammable methane in the atmosphere is rising...

    Quote: "The largest wildfire in California's recorded history expanded to almost 300,000 acres on Tuesday, postponing the start of the school year as ash choked the air and thousands of people remained driven from their homes. The Mendocino Complex, encompassing two fires lapping the northern and western shores of Clear Lake about 80 miles northwest of Sacramento, added 17,000 acres overnight to reach 290,000 acres, authorities said."

    Quote: "The blaze, dubbed the Mendocino Complex, was reported 20 percent contained on Tuesday. Its rapid growth at the same time firefighters were battling more than a dozen other major blazes around the state fanned fears that 2018 could become the worst wildfire season in California history."

              John David Washington takes on breakout role in ‘BlacKkKlansman’      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    John David Washington scores the biggest break of a booming career as the titular black undercover cop in Spike Lee’s incredible but true drama “BlacKkKlansman.”

    Washington, the eldest of actor Denzel Washington’s four children, was a running back with the St. Louis Rams and Sacramento Mountain Lions until he switched to acting six years ago.

    “I had been playing football my whole life and it took time to trust what I was wanting,” he said.

    The transition “wasn’t tough. I had so many injuries and physical pain from football, it was a relief.

    “Acting was something I wanted to do my whole life. I finally found the courage to just go for it.”

    It can be easy when your Oscar-winning dad is routinely hailed as one of America’s greats, but Washington notes that there are two high achievers at home.

    “My mother is a classically trained pianist, a child prodigy. She was giving piano lessons at 12. She sacrificed her career for her kids. That was part of the pressure as well.

    “But I’m in a different lane from both of them,” he added. “I’ve learned a lot: Humility first. God first.”

    As Ricky Jerret, opposite Dwayne Johnson, in HBO’s comedic sport series “Ballers,” Washington, 34, gets laughs.

    “BlacKkKlansman,” while humorous, spotlights racism and white nationalism, as Ron Stallworth, Washington’s Colorado Springs undercover cop, mounts a sting against the local Ku Klux Klan chapter.

    “Ron had to deal with a tremendous amount of adversity in Colorado Springs,” Washington said of the force’s first black officer.

    “He was ‘the Jackie Robinson of police officers.’ The steps to get where he was (to go undercover) could be a movie itself.”

    Washington, bearded with a mighty Afro onscreen, immersed himself in the era’s music, Blaxploitation films, documentaries, clothes and attitudes.

    “All the information was to get the feel of those late-’70s times. I got a playlist that my friends and folks were helping me with. And there were stories from people who looked like me.”

    “BlacKkKlansman” opens on the one-year anniversary of the violent Charlottesville, Va., white nationalist rally that left one counterprotester dead.

    Lee ends his film with the horrifying scene of that woman’s death.

    “That wasn’t in the plan when we were filming or rehearsing — that came later,” Washington said. “It’s a real tearjerker. I don’t have the words to express how I feel.

    “It was a great call on Spike’s part. He knows what he’s doing.”

    (“BlacKkKlansman” opens tomorrow.)

    Хэнк в поисках женщины

    я гуляю по городу и жду, пока встречу в нём:
    Рейчел МакАдамс| Rachel McAdams

    http://funkyimg.com/i/2Kfmm.gif
    ..................................................................
    Столько различных обстоятельств могли свести нас с тобой на протяжении десятка лет, но судьба видимо выжидала парада планет или природного катаклизма, чтобы наконец решиться столкнуть нас лбами. Выражаюсь точнее: моим лбом и твоей коленкой. Какая превосходная актёрская игра, я ведь сразу поверил твоей виноватой мордашке и быстро хлопающим ресницам - моргай ты быстрее, наверняка, воспарила бы надо мной как Дева Мария в её самом соблазнительном недоступном пеньюаре. Несколько бокалов переросли в пару бутылок дорогих игристых извинений, и вот мы уже танцуем медленный танец. Знал бы чем это обернется, определенно не прилагал бы столько усилий, чтобы не отдавить тебе твои лодочки на высоком каблуке. Такими бы только гулять по женским головам и топтать мужские позвонки один за одним, подчиняя себе каждого на пути. Но ты играла невинность, и я даже не был на тебя зол. Первое время. Пока прилетевшие на стол переговоров с бывшей женой фотографии того чудного вечера не замаячили перед моим носом, угрожая лишением еще 10-20% нажитого имущества. Умный ход моей женушки, чьи таланты в кукловодстве я познал лишь спустя двадцать пять лет брака. Привлечь тебя, потребовав оплату долга за юридические услуги, или быть может ты сама напросилась ей в напарницы. Как там? Go, go, girls! Не знаю, на каких условиях ты соблазняла меня для фотографий, и какая у тебя была мотивация, но сработала ты безупречно, так же заметя следы и исчезнув из моей жизни после первого звонка с требованием объяснений. Любопытство мучило меня недолго, но и за тот короткий промежуток времени я успел кое-что о тебе узнать. Твоё настоящее имя, без фамилии. Род деятельности, а именно - эскорт услуги (на тот момент уже бывший). У тебя были какие-то проблемы с увольнением, поэтому ты обратилась к моей жене за консультацией. Вместо подробностей от стажёра моей бывшей жены я получил лишь факс с распечатанным на ним средним пальцем. В изяществе её конторе не откажешь. Не знаю, искал ли я тебя для расплаты или продолжения романа (а что? Я же был разведен!), но это долго не продолжалось. Скоро жизнь столкнёт нас снова, в этот раз не пострадает ни одна коленка и ни один лоб. Но думаю, чувство вины перед друг другом ли, или перед моей бывшей рано или поздно сведет нас с ума. Хотя я готов дать нам шанс, если ты хочешь. А вдруг я не такой кобель, и ты не такая стерва, коей мне казалась?
    ..................................................................
    Давно не писал заявки, и раньше-то не особо умел. Но именно таким древним способом когда-то нашлись люди, с которыми я провёл лучшие ролевые годы. Да наступит ренессанс!
    Я постарался обозначить лишь начальную точку на карте наших будущих взаимоотношений, остальные подробности с удовольствием готов обсудить лично. Всегда за новые идеи, поэтому мне крайне важна открытость игрока и умение не только поддерживать жизнь в самом персонаже, но и в развитии всей ветки в целом.
    Что касается характера персонажа и биографии, я расскажу вам при личной беседе. Сейчас мне главное, чтобы вас заинтересовала история.
    Смена внешности, увы, не обсуждается. Я долго выбирал между актрисами, и всё-таки остановился на Рейчел. По мне она великолепна в каждом своём образе. И пусть сейчас многим непринципиален такой аспект, но играть с человеком, чья внешность меня вдохновляет (и это взаимно) намного приятнее, правда?
    Игровой процесс. Я подстраиваюсь под игрока размерами постов, но в среднем пишу 5-8к, от третьего или первого лица (в зависимости от жанра игры). От какого лица будете играть сами - неважно.

    Хэнк в поисках женщины

    я гуляю по городу и жду, пока встречу в нём:
    Рейчел МакАдамс| Rachel McAdams

    http://funkyimg.com/i/2Kfmm.gif
    ..................................................................
    Столько различных обстоятельств могли свести нас с тобой на протяжении десятка лет, но судьба видимо выжидала парада планет или природного катаклизма, чтобы наконец решиться столкнуть нас лбами. Выражаюсь точнее: моим лбом и твоей коленкой. Какая превосходная актёрская игра, я ведь сразу поверил твоей виноватой мордашке и быстро хлопающим ресницам - моргай ты быстрее, наверняка, воспарила бы надо мной как Дева Мария в её самом соблазнительном недоступном пеньюаре. Несколько бокалов переросли в пару бутылок дорогих игристых извинений, и вот мы уже танцуем медленный танец. Знал бы чем это обернется, определенно не прилагал бы столько усилий, чтобы не отдавить тебе твои лодочки на высоком каблуке. Такими бы только гулять по женским головам и топтать мужские позвонки один за одним, подчиняя себе каждого на пути. Но ты играла невинность, и я даже не был на тебя зол. Первое время. Пока прилетевшие на стол переговоров с бывшей женой фотографии того чудного вечера не замаячили перед моим носом, угрожая лишением еще 10-20% нажитого имущества. Умный ход моей женушки, чьи таланты в кукловодстве я познал лишь спустя двадцать пять лет брака. Привлечь тебя, потребовав оплату долга за юридические услуги, или быть может ты сама напросилась ей в напарницы. Как там? Go, go, girls! Не знаю, на каких условиях ты соблазняла меня для фотографий, и какая у тебя была мотивация, но сработала ты безупречно, так же заметя следы и исчезнув из моей жизни после первого звонка с требованием объяснений. Любопытство мучило меня недолго, но и за тот короткий промежуток времени я успел кое-что о тебе узнать. Твоё настоящее имя, без фамилии. Род деятельности, а именно - эскорт услуги (на тот момент уже бывший). У тебя были какие-то проблемы с увольнением, поэтому ты обратилась к моей жене за консультацией. Вместо подробностей от стажёра моей бывшей жены я получил лишь факс с распечатанным на ним средним пальцем. В изяществе её конторе не откажешь. Не знаю, искал ли я тебя для расплаты или продолжения романа (а что? Я же был разведен!), но это долго не продолжалось. Скоро жизнь столкнёт нас снова, в этот раз не пострадает ни одна коленка и ни один лоб. Но думаю, чувство вины перед друг другом ли, или перед моей бывшей рано или поздно сведет нас с ума. Хотя я готов дать нам шанс, если ты хочешь. А вдруг я не такой кобель, и ты не такая стерва, коей мне казалась?
    ..................................................................
    Давно не писал заявки, и раньше-то не особо умел. Но именно таким древним способом когда-то нашлись люди, с которыми я провёл лучшие ролевые годы. Да наступит ренессанс!
    Я постарался обозначить лишь начальную точку на карте наших будущих взаимоотношений, остальные подробности с удовольствием готов обсудить лично. Всегда за новые идеи, поэтому мне крайне важна открытость игрока и умение не только поддерживать жизнь в самом персонаже, но и в развитии всей ветки в целом.
    Что касается характера персонажа и биографии, я расскажу вам при личной беседе. Сейчас мне главное, чтобы вас заинтересовала история.
    Смена внешности, увы, не обсуждается. Я долго выбирал между актрисами, и всё-таки остановился на Рейчел. По мне она великолепна в каждом своём образе. И пусть сейчас многим непринципиален такой аспект, но играть с человеком, чья внешность меня вдохновляет (и это взаимно) намного приятнее, правда?
    Игровой процесс. Я подстраиваюсь под игрока размерами постов, но в среднем пишу 5-8к, от третьего или первого лица (в зависимости от жанра игры). От какого лица будете играть сами - неважно. Как и размер, главное, содержание. Так что я бы хотел почитать ваши прошлые посты, свои также предоставлю) А вот с частотой написания постов, думаю, мы определимся вместе. Хочется, всё-таки двигать историю активно, а не тыкать в неё раз в месяц палкой от швабры. Самое главное вдохновение для меня - пост от соигрока, поэтому если мы сыграемся, за мной ответ не заставит себя долго ждать.
    Внеигровое общение приветствуется любым удобным средством связи) Знакомство с детьми гарантирую, от бывшей жены уберегу. И вообще я, наконец, решил дать Хэнку счастье. Пусть до него путь и будет тернистым, но мы справимся ♥

              Teleskop Radio Kanada Tangkap Sinyal Misterius dari Antariksa, Alien?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Liputan6.com, British Columbia - Sebuah teleskop radio baru di Kanada berhasil menangkap sinyal misterius terduga dari alien di antariksa, atau lazim dikenal dengan sebutan semburan radio cepat atau Fast Radio Bursts (FRB).

    The Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) di British Columbia, Kanada mendeteksi FRB berfrekuensi di bawah 700 MHz itu pada 25 Juli 2018. Sinyal itu kemudian diberi nama FRB 180725A.

    FRB adalah semburan panjang emisi radio dalam hitungan milidetik yang berasal dari sumber yang tidak dikenal di alam semesta.

    Mereka adalah salah satu misteri kosmik baru, yang pertama kali berhasil dideteksi oleh komunitas ilmuwan sekitar satu dekade lalu.

    Berbagai penjelasan yang mungkin mengenai asal FRB itu beragam, termasuk semburan dari "magnetar", lubang hitam yang meledak, dan peradaban alien yang sangat maju. Demikian seperti dikutip dari CBS Sacramento, Kamis (9/8/2018).

    Menanggapi seputar temuan baru FRB 180725A, pihak CHIME menyebut bahwa "masih sangat awal pada titik ini untuk menyimpulkan sumber transmisi sinyal tersebut."

    Sementara itu, CHIME juga mengumumkan dalam postingan di "Astronomer's Telegram" -- jaringan daring komunitas atau penggiat pencari FRB -- bahwa mereka telah menemukan FRB frekuensi serendah 400 MHz dalam sepekan terakhir, menunjukkan bahwa sinyal itu berasal dari sumber yang tidak diketahui di Bumi.

    Sejauh ini hanya satu FRB yang teramati yang terus berulang mengirim sinyal. Para peneliti menyimpulkan, sumber pengirim sinyal itu memiliki gelombang transmisi yang luar biasa kuat, karena mampu mengirimkannya melintasi alam semesta.

    Ini menjadi temuan terbaru dalam studi FRB. Beberapa organisasi observatorium, seperti CHIME, terus menjaga telinga ke antariksa untuk petunjuk lebih lanjut demi membantu memecahkan misteri tersebut --serta membuka peluang untuk membuktikan kemungkinan keberadaan alien.

    CHIME sendiri telah beroperasi kurang dari satu tahun. Observatorium itu dibentuk untuk mengumpulkan data tentang FRB dan pertanyaan lain yang belum terjawab dalam astrofisika.

    Astronom Tangkap 15 Sinyal Misterius Serupa Tahun Lalu

    Ilustrasi Alien (iStockphoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    Tahun lalu, tim astronom yang berburu tanda-tanda kehidupan alien di alam semesta mendeteksi adanya 15 sinyal radio misterius. Sinyal tersebut berasal dari galaksi kerdil berjarak tiga miliar tahun cahaya dari Bumi.

    Tim astronom tersebut merupakan bagian dari proyek Breakthrough Listen yang digagas oleh miliarder Rusia Yuri Milner dan fisikawan Inggris Stephen Hawking. Proyek itu bertujuan untuk mencari tahu apakah manusia hidup 'seorang diri' di alam semesta yang sangat luas.

    Meski semburan sinyal radio (FRB) kemungkinan tak berasal dari peradaban alien, para ilmuwan mengatakan bahwa alat yang mereka miliki berfungsi dengan baik dan siap menangkap tanda-tanda kehidupan alien.

    FRB merupakan sinyal radio dari sebuah tempat di angkasa luar yang berlangsung hanya beberapa milidetik. Semburan itu berasal dari sumber yang tidak diketahui dan pertama kali ditemukan pada 2012.

    Dikutip dari The Telegraph, Minggu 3 September 2017, pada awalnya para ilmuwan menganggap bahwa sinyal tersebut merupakan dampak dari peristiwa besar di angkasa luar, seperti supernova. Tapi pada tahun 2015 dan 2016, sinyal itu muncul lagi.

    Dalam percobaan baru, para ilmuwan dari University of California, Berkeley, mengamati galaksi yang sama pada frekuensi lebih tinggi dibanding yang mereka gunakan saat mengamati ledakan asli. Hasilnya, mereka menemukan 15 sinyal lain.

    Terdapat sejumlah perkiraan sumber sinyal, mulai dari bintang neutron yang berputar dengan medan magnet sangat tinggi, hingga sumber energi yang digunakan peradaban luar bumi untuk pesawat angkasa luar mereka.

    "Kami tidak tahu dari mana mereka berasal. Saat ini hanya terdapat 30 sinyal yang kita ketahui dan hanya satu yang kita ketahui berulang, di mana kita dapat melihatnya lagi dan lagi. Kami melihat satu sinyal itu pada frekuensi yang lebih tinggi," ujar Dr Vishal Gajjar dari UC Berkeley Research.

    "Jika ada bentuk kehidupan yang dapat menghasilkan sinyal yang dikenali oleh peradaban lain maka ini bisa menjadi salah satu jalan untuk melakukan hal tersebut, tetapi saya rasa hal tersebut tidak datang dari peradaban yang pintar."

    "Teori yang ada tidak sebanding dengan sumber yang valid. Kami menemukan lebih banyak pertanyaan daripada jawaban. Semakin dalam kami melakukan studi, semakin banyak hal-hal aneh yang kami temukan," ujar Gajjar.

    Mencari Sinyal dari Alien

    Ilustrasi alien (iStock)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    Breakthrough Listen adalah gagasan astronomi global senilai US$ 100 juta dolar yang diluncurkan pada 2015 oleh Hawking and Milner. Mereka mempunyai tim di seluruh dunia untuk mencari bukti-bukti kehidupan alien menggunakan teleskop.

    Program pendahuluan selama 10 tahun akan mensurvei 10 juta bintang yang terdekat dari Bumi, memindai seluruh bidang galaksi Bima Sakti. Di luar galaksi, program tersebut akan merekam pesan dari 100 galaksi terdekat pada 10 milyar frekuensi yang berbeda.

    Pada saat konferensi pers di London, Hawking berkata bahwa kini saatnya berkomitmen untuk menemukan jawaban tentang kehidupan di luar Bumi alias alien.

    Sinyal terakhir ditangkap oleh Green Bank Telescope di West Virginia, Amerika Serikat. Sembilan juta relawan di seluruh dunia juga menyumbangkan program komputasi cadangan mereka untuk mencari data yang diperoleh dari teleskop.

    "Mereka melihat sumber yang sudah dikenal sebagai yang paling aktif dari sumber FRB yang telah ditemukan," ujar astronom Royal Lord Martin Rees yang memimpin proyek tersebut.

    "Beberapa jurnalis telah menulis bahwa ini adalah bukti adanya kehidupan alien. Tidak ada yang mengklaim ini. Tapi itu menegaskan bahwa perlatan mereka bekerja dengan baik," imbuh Rees.

    ...чёрный "Хаммер" появился на территории виноградника словно бы из неоткуда; вошёл, словно подогретое лезвие ножа в сливочное масло - и продвигался теперь вглубь территории, неторопливо, но верно, будто боясь потревожить покой плантации - хотя, пожалуй, для этого было бы как раз немного поздновато, и тяжёлая машина, похожая внешне на те, на которой рассекают американские военные по своим базам, выглядела здесь настолько неуместно, что создавала впечатление даже угрожающее, а неторопливость, с которой она двигалась по дороге, поднимая столб пыли за собой, казалось самоуверенно-неумолимой тяжестью: с такой величавой вальяжностью танк может вкатываться на побеждённые или почти побеждённые территории. С той только разницей, что победителей обычно встречают - огнём, салютом, паникой или радушием. А вот его здесь не встречал, казалось бы, никто. Лишь виноградники - длинные, аккуратные, словно расчёсанные кем-то из древних античных богов, растения, виноградная лоза с тёмными гроздями, которые из машины, да с поправкой на его неидеальное уже к старости зрение, было едва можно различить - они казались какими-то тёмными пятнами в лучшем случае... но оттого смотреть на них было ничуть не менее приятно. Гвидо, кажется, давно не чувствовал себя так умиротворённо как сейчас - просто глядя на то, как растёт виноград на плантации. И так уместно. Даже до странного. Словно происходило с ним что-то такое, правильное - словно что-то шевелилось внутри, при взгляде на кучерявые виноградные кусты, поддерживаемые шпалерами. И просто нравилось думать так: что это прадедушкины гены дают о себе знать. Что это сицилийская кровь, вымываемая американским образом на протяжении трёх поколений, так и не оказалась вымытой полностью - что его фамилия прочнее, чем его память. Фамилия Монтанелли.
    - Останови. - в какой-то момент, тяга к мирно растущим плодам стала настолько сильной, что Монтанелли не нашёл ничего лучше, чем поддаться ей - вместе с тем, не увидев чего-то плохого в том, чтобы подпитать немного собственное любопытство перед тем, как они доберутся до дома - очертания которого уже виделись впереди. Водитель оглядывается в зеркало заднего вида, но послушно останавливает машину, сворачивая чуть-чуть ближе к окраине дороги, хотя пропускать тут, казалось бы, и некого. Единственная живую душу в поле зрения они ещё даже не встретили: человеческий силуэт виднелся где-то далеко впереди, он направлялся к ним, но пройдёт ещё пара минут, пока он дойдёт... если, конечно, виноградную лозу исключить из числа объектов одушевлённых - а некоторые говорят, что так поступать не совсем правильно.
    - Ты, наверное, виноградники только на картинки видел раньше, - а, Берти?.. - усмехнулся Гвидо, оглянувшись через плечо: сопровождающий выбрался из машины вслед за ним. Спелые ягоды доверчиво касались его жёсткой ладони, а он трогал гроздь осторожно и нежно - стараясь не повредить ни один из плодов, ни один из листьев не задеть, хотя и обряд этот был понятен скорее разве что ему одному - если уж совсем честно, непонятен и ему самому тоже. Монтанелли мало что знал о винограде. Уважение было подкреплено больше подсознанием, чем образованием. Чем-то, что он едва ли смог бы до конца объяснить.
    - Эй, приятель! Ты работаешь здесь? - тот, кто направлялся в их сторону, наконец поравнялся с ними настолько, чтобы Гвидо смог его окликнуть. Мужчина был облачён в выцветшую рубашку, и джинсы, которые он носил, собрали на себя столько земли с тех пор, как были пошиты, что следы её навсегда въелись в ткань в области колен, а шляпа на его голове была схожей с той, которой защищался от солнечных лучей Монтанелли - только лоску в ней было куда менее. - Мисс Коган дома? Нам бы её увидеть.
    Отчего-то показалось, что желание довольно увидеть хозяйку плантации человека слегка насмешила, но дорогу он указал - хотя и не то, чтобы так сложно было её найти и без его помощи, на самом деле, она была всего одна, и дом, к которому она вела, кажется, тоже был здесь единственным. Во всяком случае, Гвидо, насколько городским бы жителем ни был - вряд ли перепутал бы жилой дом с сараем...
    Здесь хотелось дышать глубже. Когда "Хаммер" остался позади, пропав из поля зрения, вместе с последним напоминанием о стране, где он живёт - начало казаться, что они и не в Америке вовсе, а где-то в европейской глубинке (приятнее всего думать было, конечно, в этом ключе о родине исторической) - окружённый виноградниками каменный дом, на изысканность не претендовавший, но с просторными террасами и - наверняка ведь - подвалом где-то внутри, прямо под ними, таким же просторным... Только что он поддразнивал своего телохранителя - а теперь самому казалось удивительным, почему, как так получилось, что за всю свою долгую жизнь подобные места он видел настолько редко? Место казалось просто сказочным - из истории про спящую красавицу, или вроде того, нечто, что по какой-то причине оказалось никем долгое время нетронутым... До тех пор, пока их троица не упёрлась во вполне себе современную боксёрскую грушу вполне себе американского производства, прикреплённую к той же решётке, которую оплетал зелёный вьюн.
    И красавицу... не такую уж спящую. Да и не такую уж красавицу, если принять во внимание шрамы на её лице - не принять было бы трудно, пожалуй, но они Гвидо не очень-то смутили. Когда-то и он был симпатичным, а сейчас - морщины на его лице, может, и были чуть симметричней, чем отметины Кары, но не так уж менее глубокими.
    - Помимо винного искусства, Вам не чужды и искусства боевые, мисс Коган? - он обратил на себя внимание, выступив вперёд. - Вы прямо человек скрытых талантов. Меня зовут Гвидо Монтанелли - ранее мы общались с Вами по телефону.

    Как-то так вышло, что итогов недели нет, таблицу уже обновили, и уже два выпуска об этом молчат. Не порядок! И дело вовсе не в том, что вашу покорную слугу угораздило стать игроком недели (ай да подарок перед отпуском, спасибо всем, кто голосовал!)! Давайте поздравим Шима - с постом недели, Эстер и Майкла - с эпизодом, Ви и Клои - с дуэтом недели, а Рут - с прорывом. Отдельное ура нашим активистам, они написали много постов! Ух, хорошо будет подводить статистику на этих выходных, планирую порадоваться.
    Кстати, про порадоваться. Там подвезли 3 этап мистера лето. И, надо сказать, красивые у нас в Сакраменто мужчины водятся! Не упустите шанс проголосовать за понравившегося. И, пока я писала календарь, вот прям буквально эту самую строчку, уже появился и третий этап мисс лето, где девушки идут на концерт. Посмотреть я еще толком не успела, но что-то мне подсказывает, что и там полно красивых вариантов. И тут я вспомнила, что недавно открыла для себя удивительную деталь гардероба под названием "мужское поло", но об этом - в другой раз. Сегодня, кстати, я очень радуюсь еще и тому, что у нас полно приветов. Но раздавать мы их будем по очереди!
    И сегодня - от Джейн:

    Хочу передать привет всему Сакраменто – да-да, каждому из вас, кто это читает, и даже тем, кто не читает. «Короля делает свита» (с) Макиавелли, и пусть изначально речь совсем не о том, но Сакраменто as it is такой именно благодаря вам, да, каждому из (:
    До конца лета осталось не так много – так что наслаждайтесь каждой минутой, копите впечатления и эмоции, и будьте счастливы <3

    Спасибо за такие теплые пожелания. В последнее время многие припоминают, что август - это последний месяц лета, но я вот лично очень люблю осень. Сентябрь - за кирпичи, а октябрь банально - потому что у меня день рождения. К - коварство.
    Сладких всем снов и хорошего четверга.

    активисты сегодня:

    профессия - родной город - би/гомо

    в четырнадцать — ты моя единственная надежда. в четырнадцать так страшно быть одним, тонуть в своей пустоте, а появившийся таймер даёт мне надежду на встречу с тобой. пускай — не скоро; может, через много лет; может, за следующим поворотом. это не важно. в четырнадцать мне просто хочется верить, что однажды я буду нужен и важен, что однажды я перестану быть просто ошибкой.

    в семнадцать — я злюсь. на тебя, конечно же. злюсь за твоё отсутствие, за расстояние и за то, что наши миры могут и вовсе никогда не пересечься. возможно, у нас почти не осталось времени; а, может, ещё остаётся лет тринадцать. я не знаю этого и плохо сплю в комнате общежития, которая стала уже почти родной. потому что в семнадцать мне хочется возвращаться домой, во всех чёртовых смыслах, а не просто в дом, где я никому не нужен.

    в девятнадцать — мне страшно. я уже совсем не тот, каким был раньше. если бы ты знал меня в четырнадцать, то просто не узнал бы сейчас. во мне больше ничего хорошего и я боюсь, что тебе не нужен кто-то вроде меня. таких — миллионы, так почему я должен быть особенным для кого-то?

    в двадцать — надеюсь, что никогда не встречу тебя. плевать, если проживу только оставшиеся десять лет. я просто не готов. не сейчас, когда зависим от другого. когда пытаюсь остановиться, но не могу. давай ты так и останешься для меня кем-то фантомным и далёким. так будет лучше, поверь.

    в двадцать — таймер останавливается, а появившийся китайский дракон будто пытается вскрыть мне глотку. всё переворачивается с ног на голову. почему-то я никогда не думал, что ты можешь оказаться хуже меня — коварнее, злобнее и чернее.

    ты хочешь забрать своё.

    я хочу принадлежать лишь себе самому.

    Разве мало горя и тревоги уже выпало на долю его сына?.. Первые пять лет своей жизни он вынужден был не знать своего отца; а все остальные годы - обречён не знать, а только помнить, родную мать, а тот период, когда его родные родители были вместе - в его памяти отложится в лучшем случае кратковременным моментом, туманным детским воспоминанием, - и это не та вещь, которую возможно не пронести через всю свою жизнь, это не то, с чем было бы легко справится, если говорить об отце, и о сыне, и о остальных Монтанелли, вообще каждом из них. В их роду немало тайн, но зачастую убивают не сколько они, сколько их корни - и их стебли... они душат, обвивают, продолжают расти, сколько ты их не руби; и потому самому расти можно только вместе с ними. И всё, что Гвидо в силах сделать - разве только заставлять эти корни больше обвиваться вокруг себя самого, чем вокруг своих отпрысков, отдавать им собственные жизненные силы, чтобы сохранить те, что есть у его детей. Чтобы у Дольфо и Виттории появился хотя бы шанс на то, чтобы однажды суметь принять эту правду без фатальных последствий - чтобы она не уничтожила их... чтобы сил этих оказалось достаточно, чтобы её принять. И суметь распорядиться ей настолько здраво, насколько можно будет, в этой ситуации...
    Гвидо снятся кошмары временами. Но раньше, несколько лет назад, это происходило гораздо чаще.
    Он по-прежнему редко делится ими с кем-либо...
    И зачастую они помогают проще относиться к тому, что он видит наяву; Монтанелли понимает, что он вряд ли когда-либо наяву увидит что-то страшнее, чем способен вспомнить или что ему может присниться. Слово "похищение" не вызывает у него того содрогания, которое должно испытывать большинство людей, когда определение это материализуется в столь непосредственной от них близости; он слишком хорошо это определение знает, он видел его так близко, как видит перед собой сковороду или кастрюлю, когда стряпает что-нибудь на собственной кухне - он не только занимался этим сам несколько раз, но даже и сам бывал похищен. И кажется, что Дольфо впитывает его уверенность... его сын, кровь от его крови. Но очень хочется иметь что-нибудь лучше, чем это "кажется". Хотелось бы быть в этом по-настоящему уверенным, хочется наверняка знать, что его сын - не боится. "Не бояться" и "не понимать" - всё-таки вещи несколько разные.
    Гвидо понимает больше, чем хочет. Слово "похищение" пугает его по-другому: когда он это слышит, менее всего он хочет, чтобы соотносилось оно с кем-то из его детей... потому что число поводов для этого - больше, чем он сам сможет придумать; старается даже и не думать, вокруг него слишком много зла, чтобы кликать беду даже мысленно. И в совпадения он верит очень плохо...
    Оттого как-то даже не удивляется тому звонку из ФБР. И внимание агентов - слишком тревожно для него само по себе, чтобы чувствовать себя так вольготно, как положено бы свидетелю. Он знает, что не причастен; однако не может не опасаться и того, что федералы используют возможность приписать ему это - хотя одновременно и отсутствие мотива, и его репутация говорят сами за себя. Похищение детей - не его почерк. Уж точно не с целью выкупа. И уж точно - не из того же
