           Comentario en DIFICULTADES EN LA VISIBILIDAD DE LA IGLESIA por pepe       Cache   Translate Page      
aberrante don Sofronio, limitar la validez del sacramento a dos palabras bien dichas es pretender burlarse del Espíritu Santo, y pensar que la consciente imperfección del rito no trasluce una imperfecta intención es reirse de todos nosotros, así que "La imperfección tiene como consecuencia el pecado de quien lo comete, pero no la falta de sacramento", y además le parece que podrá consagrar una buena y válida eucaristía diciendo bien lo del pan y mal lo del vino, ahí queda eso, tendremos el cuerpo de Cristo pero no su sangre, si los artotiritas la daban con queso este la da con mojama, o con cecina, para no quedarse pez, aunque represente a Cristo, y atunes ya hay bastantes, "al no haber variado hay presencia sacramental, aunque no se diese la forma adecuada en la consagración del vino", ¿a qué especie de monstruosa secta destructiva pertenece el quídam? probablemente a algún antro brujeril donde cumplen con decir las palabras mágicas y si fallan con un diablo vienen otros a suplirlo, les basta someterse al oscuro señor y padre de la mentira
           Comentario en ANTE LA FALTA DE TESTIMONIOS CATÓLICOS CONTRA LOS “PAPAS CONCILIARES” por Máximo       Cache   Translate Page      
Sr. Jorge Rodríguez: No se puede Ignorar lo enseñado por Santo Tomás: “El poder de jurisdicción no permanece en los herejes y cismáticos”, Por lo tanto si quieren ejercerlo: “nihil actum est” (S.T. 2-2, 39, 3). Luego no hay papa, ni materialiter ni formaliter. Ahora bien, San Pío X, en la Constitución “Vacante Sede Apostolica” mostró el “deber gravísimo y santísimo de elegir un Sucesor de Pedro, en la vacancia”: Ese deber de obrar no viene del Derecho humano; viene de la esencia y naturaleza de la Iglesia instituida por Cristo. Él se funda en el dogma de fe: la Iglesia de Cristo, por naturaleza, por voluntad de Cristo debe tener “perpetuos sucesores de Pedro en el primado sobre la Iglesia, en la fe y en el régimen.” (D.S. 3058). Los que niegan a la Iglesia la posibilidad de elegir un papa en la situación actual de sesenta años de sede vacante, es decir, quien conscientemente y pertinazmente niega el “deber de obrar”, de elegir el Sucesor de Pedro, en realidad niega también el deber de creer en el dogma de fe definido por el Vaticano I.“Agere sequitur esse”, el obrar sigue al ser, dice la ontología, “La voluntad no precede, sino sigue al intelecto” dice la filosofía tomista aprobada por San Pío X (D.S.3621). Quien niega ese “deber de obrar” niega también el dogma de fe, porque, sin el medio necesario para la existencia de los “perpetuos sucesores” de Pedro, se sigue que el dogma es falso. Es lo que quieren los herejes Ergo, caen en la herejía jansenista que afirma que Dios aveces manda cosas imposibles. Las leyes de la Iglesia, sea en el Código de Derecho Canónico, sea en la Constitución “Vacante Sede Apostolica”, en todas sus cosas principales se fundan en el Derecho Divino. Donde ni todo en esas leyes es de Derecho humano y ni todo es de Derecho divino. Y la parte de la “Vacante Sede Apostólica” que trata de los electores “Cardenales”, es de Derecho humano; no existía en los comienzos. Y puesto que todos los cardenales y la jerarquía conciliar sostienen las herejías del conciliábulo vaticano II, no tienne ninguna representación para elegir al Vicario de Cristo, porque todos ellos están excumulgados ipso facto, latae sententiae. Luego le corresponde a la Iglesia elegir a un Papa, el cual, si acepta, será revestido de la autoridad, no de los lectores que ninguna tienen, sino de Dios. Se podrá opinar sobre quienes son los representantes más aptos para la elección, así como del porcentaje de los sufragios requeridos, del número de los electores, del lugar, de la forma de congregación, etc. Pero no es católico negar a la Iglesia la posibilidad práctica de elegir a un Papa, porque iría contra el dogma citado e que "debe haber pertutuos sucesores", con lo cual estarían negando un dogma sobre la Constitución divina de la Iglesia y serían herejes,colocándose, ipso facto, fuera de la Iglesia. No importa la prominencia del dogma material que se niegue. Cualquier dogma negado, constituye herejía, porque niega el objeto formal "quo" y "quod" de la fe: creemos porque Dios lo ha revelado por su propia autoridad, y Él, que es la suma Verdad, no puede ni engañarse ni engañarnos. Si digo que creo en todos los dogmas menos que, por ejemplo, deba haber papas perpetuamente, estoy diciendo que Dios es mentiroso en ésto que a mi me parece de una manera determinada, luego el 99% de los dogmas que acepto, ya no los acepto porque Dios los revela con su propia autoridad, sino que creo en ellos porque a mi entendimiento "le parecen razonables, pero no obstante Dios podría equivocarse en alg"o: Ergo ya no es fe infusa sobrenatural, sino humana; y al carecer de la virtud de la fe, porque se ha destruido el objeto formal, me perdería eternamente. Sin Fe nadie puede agradar a Dios.Sin la Fe nadie se salva. Por lo tanto, todos los modernistas, más o menos liberales de la secta conciliar, todos los lefebrvistas, sean o no de la frater, de la resistencia flácida o los clérigus vagus salidos de la frater o expulsados,y todos los que mantienen la tesis del papa materialiter, y todos los que niegan a la Iglesia el obrar engañando a sus fieles son herejes por negar en los hechos y muchas veces en sus novedosas doctrinas un aspecto fundamental de la Constitución divina de la Iglesia, de manera que sus "iglesias" no es la católica por muchos roquetes, misas tradicionales, ejercicios espirituales, etc., que hagan. Por lo tanto, según el Codex Iuris Canonici, recibir los sacramentos de sus manos, aunque sean válidos, es ilegítimo, y salvo en peligro de muerte, se comete sacrilegio: pecado mortal. Sin la Fe divina nadie agrada a Dios, y estos citados no la tienen. Elegir no significa conceder autoridad, porque ésta viene de Dios. León XIII repite en la encíclica “Diuturnum illud” lo que Cristo hace, siguiendo los que ya hiciera Dios en el tiempo de Samuel: concedió al pueblo elegido que escogiese la persona humana que recibiría de Él el poder divino, o “jus regis” (Sam.8,9). El pueblo elige la persona; pero el poder y el“derecho del rey” vendrá de Dios (Rom. 13, 1-2); “de lo alto” (Jn. 19, 11). Luego a la Iglesia militante le corresponde cumplir con su misión gravísima, y Dios dará autoridad al elegido, si él acepta la elección. De esta elección están excluidos tanto como elegibles, y como electores, todos aquellos herejes y otros citados en el párrafo anterior. ¡ No caigamos en el jansenismo! Apuremos a nuestros obispos y resto del clero sedevacantitas para que lleguen a un acuerdo sobre el modo de la elección y cumplan con su deber ante Dios de elegir un Papa. La siguiente doctrina está expresamente condenada por la iglesia: "Algunos de los mandamientos de Dios son imposibles para los hombres justos que desean y se esfuerzan (por cumplirlos) considerando los poderes que realmente tienen; la gracia por la cual estos preceptos pueden hacerse posibles, está también ausente; Luego si Dios dice que debe haber sucesores perpetuos de San Pedro hasta que Cristo vuelva, ha dado los medios para que se haga efectivo: Los miembros de la Iglesia. Por lo tanto si el Derecho humano no puede ser cumplido en un caso no previsto por el Legislador humano, compete a toda la sociedad de fieles - los bautizados que tienen prístina la fe católica, no los herejes señalados u otros-, fundada directamente por Cristo, el derecho, el poder o el deber de elegir el Sucesor de Pedro. Si el derecho humano no puede ser cumplido en un caso no previsto por el legislador, siempre es posible cumplir el derecho divino, lo contrario es jansenismo. Ergo, cúmplase.

Пытаясь проглянуть на фоне ранних, совсем ещё разреженных, жидких сумерок, свет лампочек рождественских гирлянд, декораций, украшений на вывесках, блеск новогодних игрушек, даже искусственная зелень в большинстве своём не менее искусственных новогодних ёлок - всё это казались таким... наивным. Честно отрабатывая свои киловатты, электричество всё ещё не могло бы превзойти солнечный свет, дать того сверкания, того света и того цвета, которое могло бы посчитаться и впрямь праздничным - и оттого свечение казалось всё ещё бледным. По мере того, как вечер начнёт сильнее и смелее сменять день, это тоже переменится. Новогодние огни лучше всего видны в темноте. Как и праздничные фейерверки тоже не имеют такой силы на фоне голубого неба.
На фоне голубого, чистого и безоблачного, благоприятного неба любая вспышка, напротив, кажется скорее угрозой...
Но и это время дня имеет свою, неповторимую, отличимую от любого другого момента суток атмосферу. Зачастую - особенно, когда был моложе, возраста своего старшего сына, чуть постарше, чуть помоложе, - Гвидо мог только подняться с постели к четырём-пяти часам вечера (его "рабочий" график был, по большей части, и по понятной причине, скорее ночным); вот и сейчас, по привычке, он жмурился немного сонно, оглядываясь на Солнце сквозь стекло своего "Хаммера" с пассажирского сидения, - но знал, что эта дремота пройдёт, в худшем случае как только он переступит порог клуба, а в лучшем - как только откроет дверь машины. Своего рода отголосок очень старых, впечатавшихся в сознание привычек. Слепая и отдалённая реакция почти отмерших некогда нервных окончаний. Но некоторые другие, располагающиеся где-то по соседству с ними, окончания эти были не настолько отмершими и не настолько спящими... Когда автомобиль остановился, Гвидо тронул сына за предплечье, чтобы не торопился выходить - и огляделся, нету ли чего-то на парковке, чего-то со стороны дороги, чего-то у входа в клуб. Чего-то. Он не знал, чего именно - чего-то, что может привлечь его взгляд. Показаться подозрительным.
Сложно не оставаться параноиком, когда в тебя стреляли - это, впрочем, может быть характерно для большинства людей. Если говорить о более узком круге общения, сложно не оставаться параноиком, если чувствуешь запах ФБР... есть определённые сорта субстанций, ну или проще говоря - виды грязи, отмыться от которой сложнее, чем от грязи обычной. И даже если чист внешне, можешь ещё долго чувствовать запах потом.
- Ты уже понял, что Крис очень ценит эту девочку, верно? - убедившись, что у "Люкса" было тихо и мило, Гвидо обратил своё лицо к сыну, перед тем, как выйти из автомобиля. Прикосновение его ладони перестало быть удерживающим, но осталось достаточно сильным, чтоб Лео мог почувствовать тепло его ладони. - И я тоже. Как по мне - она очень хорошо справляется. Но не смотря на это - ты понимаешь, что будет, если она начнёт говорить? - доверие к людям должно строиться на чём-то. Пока что оно строилось на том, что Алиса нравится Миллигану, - и на том, что на её долю уже выпало много чего тяжёлого, что её не сломило; это было очень немаловажно, но этот клуб - вырос на том же самом фундаменте, и конструкции становилось тесновато. Становился нужен новый этаж - новый уровень доверия. И пару новых стен, как ещё один слой защиты. Стен, которые не отгородят их с Лео от мисс Лиддел, а наоборот, возведены будут вокруг них. - Надо доверять людям, Лео. Но нужно и давать им повод себе доверять. Capisce? - Гвидо похлопал Лео по плечу. Убийство - это тяжёлая часть их бизнеса. Но тяжелее всего - убивать того, кто был тебе знаком, кто был твоим другом; или даже больше, чем другом... и переступить через себя в этом случае становится особенно важно.
Впрочем, никого они убивать не собираются. Тяжёлая дверца "Хаммера" открывается, чтобы впустить в салон немного свежего вечернего воздуха. Гвидо прихватывает с собой два продолговатых предмета, оба - завёрнутых в белоснежную бумагу, и, устроив их под мышкой, выходит из машины. Безмолвие пространства перед клубом контрастно сменяется звучанием музыки, что делает честь и звукоизоляции помещений - хотя это и не тот стиль, от которого Монтанелли действительно хотел бы "изолировать" свой слух (Лео легко это подтвердит - как минимум, зная, что у отца играет в машине).
- Алиса! Господи, я тебя не узнал... - рассмеялся Гвидо, - и впрямь, Лиддел выглядела настолько по-другому, отлично от своего обычного образа, что узнал он её даже не сразу; больше по голосу, чем внешне. Говорят, это хорошая примета. Придерживая свой груз, он крепко обнял хозяйку клуба свободной рукой, мягко коснувшись своей щекой её щеки. - И я тебя, дорогая. Buona sera. Как дела, как бизнес?.. - отпустив Алису, Монтанелли снял шляпу со своей головы - раздеваться, впрочем, не спешил, как и передавать в чьи-нибудь руки то, что принёс сюда. Хотя не стремился и акцентировать на этом внимание самой Алисы, и тем более кого-нибудь из работающих в клубе. - А, так вот это в честь чего? - Гвидо взмахнул шляпой, указывая на сегодняшний наряд Лиддел - и улыбнулся ещё шире, произнеся следующее с таким выражением, слегка мечтательно, с долькой ностальгии - можно было подумать, словно он знает, о чём говорит, так, словно жил в то время. Разумеется, нет; он не был и близко к ней, Гвидо не был настолько стар. Но это время видел его дед; из этого времени произошли его отец и мать, чета Монтанелли хлебнула его сполна - можно сказать, из одного и того же источника. И память крови всегда отзывалась на это по-особенному. - Очень интересная эпоха, да... Я знаю эту композицию! Но не могу вспомнить, как она называется... - что ничуть не мешало ему наслаждаться ей, впрочем. Гвидо не мог сказать, что хорошо разбирается в музыке, но это не означало, что он не любит музыку; совершенно не зная нотной грамоты и не обладая музыкальным слухом как таковым, он мог понимать музыку на каком-то подсознательном уровне. Не умея ни играть на чём-либо, ни петь, он чувствовал себя как-то по-особенному одухотворённо, когда находился в обществе музыкантов. И ему всегда интересно было общаться с ними.
- Вообще-то, мы принесли кое-что с собой... так делать не принято, знаю; надеюсь, что это первый и последний раз.
- он протянул Алисе один из своих свёртков. По форме и весу она могла бы заключить, что это была винная бутылка, это же ощущение - вполне могло бы натолкнуть на ответ и о том, чем она должна быть наполнена. Это не было бы неправдой, в этом никакой интриги, в бутылке находилось вино. - Мы с удовольствием присоединимся к вечеру, но чуть позже. Возможно, когда он уже начнётся. Нам с Лео нужно поговорить, о делах... Проводишь нас в кабинет? - там эту бутылку никто не увидит. Что позволит не разрушать ни атмосферы заведения, ни атмосферы вечера, ни вполне себе гласных правил приличия любых питейных заведений.

разочарованно вздыхаешь - заслужить, говорит, - а как же авансовый платёж? - но всё же терпения у него никакого, а ты даже не мог определиться, интересно это или скучно - многогранность была гранью кристаллической решётки графита, мягко оседая у тебя на языке меловым послевкусием нетерпеливых вопросов; но ты молчишь, потому что всё вокруг слышит вас, в некоторые моменты нельзя доверять даже небу над вашими голос/в/ами. профессор Освальд всю дорогу молчит, лишь бросив эту скупую фразу, ты - всю дорогу чиллишь, пока можешь, наблюдая за хаотичным мельканием пятен на внутренней стороне век.

почему-то вновь хочется погрузиться в зыбкий сон, ты зеваешь, пытаешься сбросить с себя эту сеть [паучью или рыболовную - пока не разобрался, склоняешься к первому, потому что разрывается она легко одним дискомфортом], смотришь по сторонам - ветер касается волос, забирается за шкирку освежающей прохладой. когда машина останавливается, тебе становится зябко от перепада температуры, ёжишься [делают ли это ежи?]; выпрыгиваешь в зябкое и полупрозрачное существование реальности, которая под твоими ногами обретает подобие сбывшегося и твёрдого, словно кремень.

в лифте - опять тишина, отчаянно хочется закурить, чтобы её скрасить - любопытство гуляет между вами искрами и всполохами, выдыхаешь с успокоением, хорошо, что ты всё успел вычистить с той тусы неделю назад, перед бывшим учителем не хочется окунаться лицом в грязь, хоть он бы тебя скорее всего не осудил. поворот ключа [тихий мелодичный звук открывающегося механизма, будучи наградой вам отталкивался от стен, взмывающих неразличимо вверх], толкаешь дверь от себя, приглашая войти, задерживаясь и пропуская вперёд в уютный красный кирпич, который с высоким потолком выглядел небрежно и величественно одновременно.

иногда у тебя возникало ощущение на краю пространства, будто ты живёшь в каком-то постапокалиптическом мире, давно заброшенным человечеством - так шутил с тобой шутки лофтовый стиль, соблюдённый, как по учебнику. скидываешь с себя обувь, проходишь, вдыхаешь родного воздуха, косишься на профессора - ну, восхищён ли зрелищем? - киваешь на барную стойку, заходя за неё со стороны кухни, - что будешь пить? - перебираешь остатки за дверцей, находя какие-то исключительные образцы, из которых можно выбрать что-то стоящее.

затем перетекаешь из состояния "бармен, готовый налить" в состояние "собутыльника, готово выслушать", когда в твоем стакане плещется на дне приторно-пряное, а до этого даже не заполняешь тишину между вами обрывками мыслей. правда, когда садишься рядом, всё-таки - прерываешься, соблюдая разрыв, вспоминая что-то важное, поднимаешься по лестнице наверх, на ходу бросая, - я сейчас, - перебираешь ногами, огибая кровать, вытаскивая из ящика полки давно забытое. настолько, что приходится поспешно стряхивать пыль, находя чистую салфетку [пришлось осматривать лишние пару секунд, чтобы убедиться в этом].

вниз - очертя голову, но сначала задерживаешься с другой стороны, быстро поджигая [щелчок зажигалки будто эхом раздался и твёрдо рухнул с обрыва] и наполняя лёгкими дымом из косяка, горло сразу сушит чрезмерно, доводя до самого нельзя. спустился уже с довольной улыбкой, быстро, но чувствуя по телу разливающееся тепло, - вот, - протягиваешь пластинку, - я забыл её подарить тебе после защиты диплома, - по причине слишком сильного трипа, который пробирал тебя так, что своё имя ты еле ворочал тогда на языке, с трудом вспоминая всё другое, что должен.

опираешься спиной о твёрдую линию стула, заглядываешь в глаза, осушая стакан обычной воды, предусмотрительно оставленной недалеко, - так что случилось? - голова склоняется вопрошающе набок, - тебе захотелось взломать какую-то студенточку и посмотреть, что она пишет о тебе своим подруженькам? - знаешь же, что не так, почувствовал за всё время то напряжение, сковавшее его - паучье чутьё тебе подсказывает, что дело серьёзное; душа колотится, пытаясь вылиться через край и уползти в более надёжное укрытие, чем оболочка твоего тела, которая, естественно, потащит сейчас её в очередные неприятности.

наугад прочитав молитву, перекрестясь, я упрямо вступаю в крепкую с виду грязь, чтобы быть в ней по пояс, не шевелясь, не плача. вот была бы удача, сделал бы все иначе. вот была бы надежда в полный рост расстелиться, я бы видел восторг на серых от горя лицах, я бы символом стал и вышел на эшафот, да никто не берет всерьез мой худой живот. так приходится жить: неловко и неуместно, даже в этой грязи моим устремлениям тесно, но пока я коплю их в теле как мерзкий ком, забываю о том, насколько здесь глубоко.

          Исполняю желания. Дорого.      Cache   Translate Page      

- Ты хочешь сказать, что моя душа не очень? Вот чудеса у тебя,  - да. А клиента лучше меня тебе не найти! – я хотел показать своей рыжей знакомой, что  весь такой крутой и самоуверенный, Но это же было не так. Это было заметно даже по тому, как я общался с Сильвией. Точнее не общался. Но ведь всегда можно притвориться кем – то другим.
- И чего это тебе не нравится моя машина? Не самая плохая, между прочим. Я на нее целый год копил. – поднявшись из – за стола, направился вслед за исполнительницей желаний. Хотя пока она и не исполнила ни одного. Разве что устроила показательные выступления с кровью и какими – то странными книжками. Ну и привела в ресторан, где я и работал. Еще и самому пришлось платить за заказ. Из нее джинн получался не очень. Хотя я и не ждал ничего, по правде говоря. Мне просто нравилось общаться. Что – то было в этой рыжей притягательно – задорное. Хотя она и пугала не меньше. Но все мысли тут же выветрились, стоило только оказаться внутри крутой тачки, которая, видимо, принадлежала этой  джинихе. Ну или кто она там? Тут же захотелось понажимать на все кнопки, подержаться за руль. И ведь знал, что веду себя как идиот, но ничего не мог с собой поделать. Не каждый же день ты сидишь в тачке, которая стоит как твоя десятилетняя зарплата. Хотя чем дальше мы двигались, тем более уставшим я себя ощущал. И ведь спал же накануне. Кажется, даже хорошо. Но глаза слипались, точно меня опоили снотворным зельем. А может так оно и есть? Что было в коле? Она же ее подавала мне. Вдруг подсыпала чего? Но мысль так и не успела меня напугать. Мир погрузился во тьму. Сколько я провел в небытии, ответить не мог. Слишком разбитым себя чувствовал. Голова болела, тело ломило, как после болезни. Но стоило открыть глаза, как и это все улетучилось, точно туман в ясный день. Я был в доме. Нет,  не так. Я был в особняке. Я жил здесь. Одна только спальня была больше все квартиры, которую я снимал в не самом благополучном районе города.  Сильвия была рядом со мной. Она была такой красавицей в свадебном платье. У нас были дети, которые, слава богу, внешностью пошли в маму. Такие же прекрасные. И самое главное наши.  Отставив фотографию в сторону, я спустился вниз. Гостиная была украшена едва ли не золотом. Но все было дизайнерски – лаконичное. Без перебора. Наверное,  Сильвия занималась обустройством. Она всегда отличалась отличным вкусом, как в одежде, так во многом другом. Я видел фотографии ее квартиры, которые она выкладывала в инстаграм. Она была великолепна во всем. Но не успел я насладиться великолепием своего дома, который до сих пор казался мне лишь прекрасным сном, услышал голоса. Смех. Сильвия. Ее голос я узнаю из тысячи. И я направился на звуки голосов. Уже раздумывая о том, что даже если это просто прекрасный сон, то я не желаю просыпаться. А потом, когда увидел свою Сильвию…жену! в объятиях какого – то другого мужика. И не важно, что они пытались показать, что их увлечение вовсе не увлечение, а просто урок большого тенниса. Но я – то знал, что это не так. Видел! Моя Сильвия прижималась к этому незнакомцу, словно хотела…ну  слишком многого хотела. А он прижимался к ней не как на уроке. У них это прелюдии. Я в порнухе такое видел. Да, я смотрю порно и что с того? Наверное, это и разозлило больше всего. Моя Сильвия вела себя как эти женщины из фильмов компании бразззерс.
- Эй, мужик, не знаю как тебя там и не хочу знать. Отвали от Силь…моей жены! А иначе сейчас позову охрану и вылетишь отсюда, как самый последний из преступников. Сильвия, милая, а ты лучше бы к мужу так прижималась, чем к этому незнакомцу.

за окном 03/12/2018

Как-то зимняя прокрастинация меня накрыла. Как с ней бороться?
Когда вроде бы и дел полно, но куда прикольнее, конечно, смотреть на то, как они копятся, а не действительно пытаться что-то сделать с этим комком навалившегося безобразия.
Однако, мы тут собрались не для того, чтобы грустить и страдать по длинным спискам неоконченного/ненаписанного и прочего не. Вторник сегодня выдался удивительно спокойным, и даже порадовать вас особенно нечем. Кроме "Давай поженимся" - там в девятом этапе обсуждают животрепещущий вопрос - где можно увидеть дыру? И, кстати, пока я тут царапала календарь, выложили уже ответы, да.
И привет сегодня от Дени:

Тео, от игры с тобой сносит крышу <3 поэтому давай не будем останавливаться, ладно?

Очень мило и очень горячо, да. Не останавливайтесь, а то остановитесь как я и будете думать над сменой персонажа, а это так фрустрирует. В который раз повторяю людям - не надо быть как я! Я - вообще плохой пример для подражания, поэтому не будьте мной, напишите третий пост за сегодня и попадите в календарь или ткните в топ. Можно и то, и другое сделать, вообще огонь получится, уверяю.

МОЯ ВТОРАЯ ПОЛОВИНА ДУШИ


Ashley Olsen

Имя: -
Возраст: 28
Род занятий: -
Ориентация: бисексуальна


Как бы мы не сходили с ума,
Удержи меня

★ ★ ★

I WANT YOU, I WANT YOU SO BAD:
Твинцест. Особо впечатлительным дальше лучше не читать :3
Наберу, хоть и вредно же
Тебя в легкие, в сложные…
И уснуть на твоем плече
В твоей теплой и кожаной.

Наша матушка сошла бы с ума, определенно, а отец тут же лишил бы наследства. Родственники отказались бы считать нас кем-то ближе десятой ветви со стороны умалишенной прапрапрабабки, вообрази мы открыть им страшную тайну.
Но увы. Мы не сумели сохранить ее даже для себя.
А помнишь, мы были счастливы?
Когда нам подарили двух котят, похожих, словно капли воды. Твой, самостоятельный и характерный, в первый же день перевернувший миску с водой, и мой, тихий и ласковый, спавший исключительно на твоей подушке. Совсем как я несколько лет спустя.
Мне нравилось, что ткань пахла тобой, и даже в дни, когда ты вынуждена была уезжать на учебу слишком рано, я все равно оставалась словно в твоих объятиях.
Когда в день выпуска из школы отец подарил нам поездку в Америку, где мы были предоставлены сами себе. Друг другу. Первое почти бесконтрольное путешествие, секс в гостинице с тонкими стенами, знакомство с еще одной парой близнецов, которые так же, как и мы...
Были привязаны друг к другу? Нуждались? Любили?

Мне так хочется задать тебе этот вопрос, но только ответ, к сожалению, слишком ожидаем. На мои звонки ты давно не отвечаешь, при встречах, пусть и мимолетных, старательно смотришь в сторону и улыбаешься кому угодно, но не своей сестре, что когда-то была ближе любого человека на этой чертовой планете.
Я знаю, что виновата. Знаю, что заслужить брошенное на пол и растоптанное доверие стократ сложнее, но. Но, быть может, ты позволишь мне хотя бы попытаться?
Наберусь силы, смелости
И по памяти заново наберу,
Только ты возьми меня за руку.
Занято…


Об игроке:
В общем, в первом предложении все уже ясно хд На самом деле, хочу в драму, тлен, безысходность и так далее, если кому-то в реале не хватает, приходите, поднажмем)
Итак, кратко, что нужно знать:
- Джи и сестра ее (да, персонаж уже был, есть незаконченный эпизод, который на сюжет, по сути, никак не влияет) испытывают друг к другу вовсе не сестринские чувства, обнаружилось это лет в 16, длится до сих пор
- они могли учиться в разных университетах, даже скорее всего так и было, но. Но на втором курсе Джи встречает другую девушку, влюбляется (по крайней мере, ей так кажется или хочется, чтобы казалось) в нее, позже они официально расписываются и живут вместе. Сестра, конечно, яро против, но кто ее вообще спрашивает?
- в скором времени новоиспеченные жены решают завести ребенка. Брит (жена Джии) вынашивает его, после родов оказывается, что у девочки проблемы с сердцем, она не проживает и двух месяцев и отправляется в мир иной. Сестре Джи ничего не сообщает, но та узнает все от родителей, так и не удосужившись хотя бы написать смс.
- после смерти дочери Брит слетает с катушек. На самом деле. Оказывается, что дражайшая женушка умолчала об замечательном биполярном расстройстве, и теперь Джи не может просто так уйти, боясь оставить ее одну в приступах, но и без сестры тоже не может.
В общем, слезы, тлен, все, как любит какое-нибудь количество ролевиков хд
За подробностями можно смело писать мне :3
Что касается внешности, если Олсен вообще не прут, договоримся о ком-нибудь еще.
Но они милашки, правда, если не брать времена, когда МК умудрилась сделать себе пластику и стала похожей на кхм хд

ну мими же

http://funkyimg.com/i/2Nvot.jpg

Ни в коем случае игрока к себе не привязываю. Сестра вообще могла, например, в отместку выскочить замуж за кого-нибудь очень влиятельного. И вы можете даже прийти парой, так интереснее. Все равно, я полагаю, Джи будет страдать куда больше. Что поделать хд

ХУДШИЙ ДРУГ ДЕТСТВА


Маркул обсуждаемо, но лучше нет

Имя: на твое усмотрение
Возраст: 23-25
Род занятий: на твое усмотрение
Ориентация: би или гетеро


Когда ты себя угробишь, распишусь за понятую.

★ ★ ★

I WANT YOU, I WANT YOU SO BAD:
► Ты родился в России и переехал с родителями в Лондон в подростковом возрасте.
► Мы познакомились в школе и, как две белые вороны, старались держаться друг друга. Позже ты нашел плохую компанию, к которой я тоже прибилась, потому что желания оставаться одной (снова) не было.
► Мы мало общались в период совершеннолетия, но уже взрослыми встретились снова и чисто дружеские отношения стали чуть более романтическими. Но. Мы не вместе и, наверное, никогда не будем. Я вытащу тебя из любого дерьма и знаю, что ты сделаешь то же самое. Кто из нас для кого последний билет?
► У тебя не особенно хорошие отношения с семьей, как и у меня. Вы держитесь друг за друга, но понимания нет, наверное, еще со времен переезда.
► Мы - дети улицы. И на эту улицу привел меня ты. Может, поэтому мы так похожи.

Биография практически полностью на твое усмотрение. Занимайся, чем хочешь, живи как хочешь, только помни, что хороших мальчиков тут быстро давят, а ты как-то дожил до 23-25.

Характер у тебя не из легких, особенно, когда накуришься. Упрямый, как баран, вечно все пытаешься делать по-своему, даже когда понимаешь, что придется отвечать. Слишком импульсивен или слишком пассивен, смотря как звезды сошлись. Лезешь, куда не стоило бы, пытаешься все попробовать на собственной шкуре, забывая, что она рвется. Да, мы очень похожи, но ты - во всем слишком. Слишком смелый, безбашенный, резкий, неуловимый.

Наша история - слишком подростковая, а ведь мы оба давно не просим у мамы "на расходы". Слишком много драмы, грязи, предательств и надежды, которая теряется с каждым днем все больше. Наверное, тонет в остатках виски на дне бутылок. И черт с ней, давай найдем новую цель, новый путь.

мой персонаж

Скромная, забитая и миниатюрная девушка, на самом деле, способна за себя постоять. Драться, конечно, не особо умеет, а вот глаза выцарапать или яичницу приготовить — без проблем, бегать при необходимости тоже научилась. Несмотря на довольно взрывной характер в конфликты предпочитает не влезать, часто игнорируя издевки или подколы. Ева с детства не любит агрессию, направленную на живых существ, и совершенно теряется, когда напрямую сталкивается с враждебностью. С малознакомыми людьми Вилка либо молчаливая, если считает тех опасными, либо резкая и язвительная со слабыми, а вот с близкими, которых почти не осталось, милая и внимательная. На самом деле, выпады Вил — только защитная реакция. Она злится, чтобы не обижаться, вспыхивает, бунтует, прячет слезы за криками, а ночами рыдает в подушку, ощущая себя пустой и потерянной. По-детски упрямая девушка бодается с оппонентом в споре до последнего, но не может решить вишневый йогурт взять или клубничный.
Если бы Ева знала, в какую сторону двигаться, то ломала бы стены голыми руками, но она застряла в подростковых комплексах, душещипательных песнях Меладзе и дыме сигарет с ментолом. Верная, как собака, она потеряла свое сердце где-то в блядских компаниях и среди вечно подставляющих одноразовых людей, а теперь проще быть за любой кипиш и расплескивать себя еще больше — терять нечего. У нее нет тяги к саморазрушению, просто так получается; больше нет надежд и стремлений, есть писк кассового аппарата, колокольчик над дверью в магазин и английский с сильным русским акцентом.


Об игроке:
Если ты понял все отсылки в тексте, приходи скорее! ЗАЛЮБЛЮ
Конечно, главное - желание играть и развивать персонажа, любить треш и подростковую драму. Мне кажется, у нас будет много эпизодов из прошлого, хотелось бы прожить эту историю не только на уровне договоренности. Хорошо, если ты любишь общение вне ролей, просто поболтать или зависнуть во флуде, но это не обязательно.

В целом, все обсуждаемо. Если зацепил характер, маякни, договоримся.

I WANT YOU, I WANT YOU SO BAD:
Хэнки, у нас с тобой очень занятная была история, знаешь ли. Когда-то в маленьком городке Чорли захолустного уголка Ланкашира я искал себе музыкантов в группу и среди всех прочих - нашел тебя. Ты казался таким сочувственным малым. Спрашивал всякое, мол, почему зачем куда и как. Лез в душу, понимаешь ли. После смерти любимого брата, с которым мы группу делали, я конечно нуждался в утешении и ты меня хорошо утешил, чувак, прям на твердую пятерочку, с большой такой буквы П. Потому что несмотря на захолустность города и костность взглядов оного ты был чистосердечным пидором, а я очень хотел трахаться. Мы даже встречались какое-то время. Тайно. Потому что ну, городок гнилой, сам понимаешь. Слухи могли пойти, которые тебе не были нужны - ты же из приличной, мать ее, семьи, пацан четкий. На районе тебя уважали. Кто его знает, может из-за этого все и пошло по пизде... или может быть виновата моя тяга к скандалам и блядкам... а может ты изначально это планировал... в общем, как только ты в группе укрепился, тексты имел на руках, ноты, инструменты, команду - ты меня из группы выгнал. Красиво и с красноречивыми хлопками дверью, да так что по жопе, да так что больно было. Группа ведь была названа в честь погибшего брата. Моего. И тексты были мои. И музыка моя. Ну, почти. Может быть я не был самым лучшим руководителем, но за что ты так со мной, Хэнки?
Семь с половиной лет назад мы хреново расстались и пока что больше не виделись. Я тебе провода в тачке подрезал даже, правда, предупредил об этом до того, как ты сел в нее - убивать тебя по-настоящему все-таки не решился. Да и нахрен мне в итоге группа не всралась, можно тебе даже спасибо сказать за то, что глаза мне раскрыл. В общем, пути-дорожки наши разошлись и ты неплохо держался пару лет, в чартах был, выпустил несколько альбомов (у меня было много текстов). Но знаешь, на ворованном долго протянуть нельзя. Рано или поздно приходиться делать что-то свое и если таланта нет (или есть, но не в том) не остается никакого пути, кроме как вниз.
Итого ты уже года четыре как посредственный музыкантишка с проходной группой, на подпевках у каких-то обсосков. Заработки в барах и на корпоративах за счет старых песен - не густо, Хэнки, правда? Я бы пошутил о карме, если б верил в эту лабуду. Сильно тебя жизнь потрепала? Пьешь? Колешься? Мнишь себя суперзвездой и пристаешь к малолеткам? Я не в курсе.
Я кстати все еще пишу хорошие тексты. В стол. Свеженькие. Их еще никто не слышал даже, Хэнк.
Как жаль, что мы больше не общаемся, правда?   


Об игроке:
Я чот решил откопать одного из нпс который жил внутри истории Джесс и сыграл определенную роль в его становлении. Пришло в голову, что кому-то может быть интересен опустившийся и прогнивший типчик типа Хэнка. Внешность совершенно не принципиальна, эту взял потому, что с Фредом много исходников, но я вообще не буду против любой альтернативы, ибо нигде не прописывал никаких внешних характеристик. По биографии тоже картбланш, ключевых моментов два только, пидорство и воровство. Хэнк без вариантов гей, и очень этого стремался в юности, из-за давления провинциального менталитета. Впрочем сейчас это может быть уже дело прошлого, или напротив, ты там женился чтоб жопу прикрыть - не знаю, воля твоя.
От игрока прежде всего хочу самостоятельности - ибо сам видишь, как мало герои теперь связаны. На форуме дохрена и больше прекрасных игроков, с которыми можно будет погонять что душе угодно, и пару себе найти и врагов, и друзей и детей и маму родную - все в твоих руках. Но если что, если захочется, вполне можно поиграть не только флешбеки, но и сюжетик с новыми текстами. Жизнь такая штука, может подвернуться шанс снова встретиться в любой момент.

Твоя реакция это то, что мне нужно. Изгиб спины, прижимающийся к стояку зад, запрокинутая голова. Все твое тело говорит мне о том, что хочет меня и сейчас ни одни твои слова не убедят меня в обратном. Алкоголь слишком разогревает кровь, от чего желание тебя увеличивается втрое, да и моя нежность со временем становится агрессивнее. Провожу всей поверхностью языка по изгибу шеи, собирая вкус геля для душа, а после накрываю кожу губами. Поцелуй, укус. Красные кровоподтеки россыпью бусин по всей шее с одной стороны, а после - с другой. Я кусаю твои плечи, соскальзывая зубами по мокрой коже, оставляя багряные ссадины полопавшихся капилляров. Хочется запустить пальцы в твои волосы, чтобы управлять твоим телом, но ты, итак, все делаешь сам, словно забираешь из моей головы мои желания. Сам перебираешь мои пряди, а у меня от этого по всему телу проходит электрический заряд. Ты стонешь, а это только сильнее подхлестывает, мне хочется больше, мне хочется громче, и я неосознанно впиваюсь пальцами в твое тело только сильнее. Я не думаю о том, что на месте мягких подушечек останутся красные пятна, которые весьма скоро нальются спелым сливовым цветом, а плечи украсят грубые засосы. Мне просто хочется тебя как можно больше, как можно более страстно. Хочется показать тебе как сильно я хочу тебя, твое тело, твои стоны. Словно измученный жаждой путник, наконец, нашел живительный источник. И для меня это была живая вода, которая залечивала все раны, как телесные, так и душевные.
Мне мало пары рук, потому что я хочу касаться тебя везде. Ты толкаешься в мою ладонь, извиваешься в моих руках, провожая следом своими ладонями мои и томно стонешь. Я не хочу делать тебе больно, я хочу, чтобы ты почувствовал мою нежность, но выходит все сложнее сдерживать себя. Задеваю пальцами соски, перекатываю под подушечками напряженные. Хочу взять их в рот, попробовать на вкус, но ты стоишь ко мне спиной и на данный момент меня все устраивает. Подаюсь бедрами тебе навстречу, головка скользит между ягодиц, но для меня сейчас важнее твое удовольствие. Дрочу обеими руками твой член, глажу яички, скольжу ладонями по груди, мне хочется всего и сразу, а я просто не знаю куда деть свои руки.
Ты поворачиваешься ко мне лицом, заглядываешь в глаза, а я чувствую, что весь мой мир остановился. Замер. Я сам замираю под твоими руками, страшась пошевелиться. Продолжай. Я словно получил удар плетью успокаиваясь и подчиняясь. Твои прикосновения ласковые нежные, я готов был раствориться в них, рассыпаясь в пепел. Не останавливайся, прошу. Ты тянешься ко мне, а я обхватываю рукой твое лицо, тут же целуя. Прекрати, просто замолчи. Глубоко толкаюсь тебе в рот языком, с напором, с желанием, мне кажется, что со стороны я выгляжу нелепо и смешно, но я не могу себя контролировать. Облизываю твой язык, губы, щеки. Ты мой на столько сильно, что я готов пометить тебя всеми возможными способами, хочу чтобы ты впитал мой запах, хочу чтобы все кричало о том, что ты принадлежишь мне, а ты говоришь мне о том, что я должен бояться о том, что меня будет кто-то порицать, - замолчи, - и ты берешь в руки член, а я шумно выпускаю первый стон в твой рот.
Мне хочется сказать очень много. О том, как сильно я хочу тебя сейчас. О том, как хочу твое тело и о том, как мое тело хочет тебя. Я хочу брать тебя раз за разом, а после давать тебе так же много, если не больше. Я не могу остановиться в пошлости своих мыслей, в каких позах и как конкретно я хочу тебя сейчас, а потом на диване и на том столе, который завален покупками. И на сцене, роняя все вокруг, укладывая животом тебя на твои барабаны. Хочу сверху на стуле, который одиноко стоит у стены, а потом снова на диване. А главное под елкой, сполна наслаждаясь таким подарком. Я хочу говорить и об этом, о том, как мне хорошо сейчас с тобой и о том, что вовсе не секс важен, но кому я вру, мой член стремиться в твою ладонь, отираясь о твой стояк и от этого, клянусь, срывает голову. Я опьянен тобой и хочу, чтобы ты узнал об этом, как можно быстрее, - у меня крышу рвет от тебя, - обхватываю твое лицо ладонями, поднимаю на себя твой взгляд, - ты говоришь, чтобы я не трогал тебя, не целовал, а я просто не могу иначе, -целую твое лицо, а внизу от твоей ласки все горит огнем. Чувствую пульсацию твоего члена и думаю только о том, как снова хочу взять его в рот. Нее вижу ничего, что меня бы остановило. Ты увлекаешь меня за собой из-под лейки к стене, а я разрываю поцелуй и опускаюсь перед тобой на колени.

Мы с тобой всегда были отдельно от всех. У меня был ты, у  тебя - я. Многим казалось, что этого недостаточно, но только мы знали, что это большее о чем только можно мечтать. Ты был для меня центром жизни и я не представлял как это просыпаться по утрам, когда ты не спишь со мной на одной подушке, ну или, в крайнем случае, на соседней кровати. Как начинать свое утро, когда нет споров о туалете и душе, хотя за столько лет мы прекрасно знали, как все будет. Нас никогда не травили в школе, но при этом, часто оказывалось так, что я дрался с другими ребятами. Ты переживал, а я ни капли, только если за тебя. Ты всегда спрашивал почему это произошло, а я всегда говорил, что они нам завидуют, хотя и причины всегда были разные.
А еще я всегда считал, что каждый хотел к нам. Всем нравилась наша сплоченность и кроме нашей семью никто никогда не видел, чтобы мы ругались или ссорились. В этом всегда была твоя заслуга. Ты всегда молчал, даже когда понимал, что я не прав, всегда поддерживал и был на моей стороне. Вот только дома или когда мы оставались наедине, ты всегда говорил мне, что так нельзя и я должен быть менее упрямым. Я тебя слушал, но каждый раз все выходило снова так же.
Я помню, как в нашей деревне выкупили четыре дома. Про новых хозяев ходило много слухов, о том, что они банда, а в моей голове они были бандитами и дети их, соответственно, тоже. Они быстро вписались в круг наших товарищей. У их родителей были деньги, а дети покупали на эти деньги другим мороженное. Тогда-то я и понял, что все продается, даже дружба. Они узнали про нас очень быстро и хотели, чтобы мы к ним присоединились. Тогда я сказал им все, что думал.
Тревор так и не смог смириться с тем, что мы отказались быть в его компании, и каждое лето ты видел, как я с ним вступаю в конфликты. Иногда мы просто грызлись, как две собаки, а иногда дело доходило до драк. Я не боялся его и чем старше я становился, тем отчетливее я понимал, что ты моя храбрость. Я как-то сказал ему слишком много, у меня было плохое настроение из-за того, что мы с тобой поругались. Я дрался с ним, выпуская злость, пока нас не разняли ребята из его банды. Он сказал, чтобы я встал на колени и просил прощения, но это было для меня слишком. Я так и не сделал этого. Добровольно. А когда вернулся домой с разбитыми коленями и лицом ты снова плакал, а я был рад, что теперь мы точно помиримся. Знаешь, я готов драться хоть каждый день, если ты будешь так же сильно за меня переживать каждый раз.
С тех пор многое изменилось, а я в очередной раз убедился в том, насколько ты был для меня особенным.
Смотрю за тем, как ты хватаешь пакет и торопливо шагаю вслед за тобой. Ты странно себя ведешь, а я боюсь, что обидел тебя тем, что не купил фисташковое. Ты сбавляешь шаг только через пару километров, но я не тороплюсь выпускать твою руку. Ты не умеешь врать, а потому никогда мне не врешь, но я вижу, что ты слишком взволнован и расстроен. Ты утираешь слезы, а во мне снова срабатывает красный сигнал - во что бы то ни стало остановить твои слезы. Забираю у тебя пакет, чтобы нести его самому. На улице все такой же зной, и от каждого нашего шага по дороге вверх поднимается пыть, которой мы наглотались сегодня на неделю вперед. Обещаю тебе, что мы больше не пойдем в этот магазин, но уже тогда знаю, что не сдержу слова. Мне захочется угостить тебя мороженным и захочется его самому. Срываю рукой веточку полыни, что растет вдоль дороги, а потом указываю вдаль пальцем. Нам надо идти туда в лесопосадку, Ты хочешь домой, но я настаиваю и ты сдаешься. Там тень и мы сможем пробыть там, пока не спадет жара, а главное рядом не будет назойливых гусей, от которых ты бегал по двору, или пристального внимания бабы и деда. Ты не можешь устоять перед такими аргументами и даже выдавливаешь фальшивую улыбку.
Лесополоса редкая, с высокими хвойными деревьями, редкими грибами и спелыми шишками. Мы идем вдоль нее, держась за руки в сторону деревни, но на самом деле она уводит в другую сторону и нам придется пройти еще столько же. Этот путь не короче, но приятнее. Ты все такой же грустный и даже не реагируешь на мои смешные матерные анекдоты. Мне грустно смотреть на тебя, а у тебя вот-вот из глаз польются слезы. Твердишь про гадюку и мне приходится тебе поверить. Я останавливаюсь резко возле одной стройной сосны внизу которой совсем не было веток, прижимаю тебя к ней спиной и снова целую. Я не такой настойчивый, да и поцелуй еще короче, чем за магазином. В моей голове одна идея, чтобы прогнать твою печаль и я хочу быстрее к ней приступить, пока не передумал вовсе.
- Закрой глаза.
Тихо прошу тебя и ты закрываешь. Ты веришь мне, а я верю тебе. Даже в рассказ про гадюку в который не верю - все равно верю. Это был ты, а я готов был верить тебе даже если ты скажешь, что небо розовое. Я медленно опускаюсь, все еще решаясь, но я уже знаю, что сделаю это. Встаю на колени перед тобой. Говорю успокаивающие слова, которые были адресованы нам обоим. Я спасу тебя от любой неприятности, братишка. Оттягиваю резинку твоих ярких, но грязных спортивных шорт, обнаруживая, что ты не надел под них белья. Улыбаюсь. Правильно, на улице слишком жарко, я поступил точно так же. Мне не нравилось этим заниматься, но я все равно каждый раз делал это для тебя. Не часто и без особого удовольствия, но я все равно старался. В колени впиваются сухие иголки и мятые шишки, но я зажмуриваю глаза и терпеливо жду тебя. Я не тороплив и внимателен, а ты такой тихий, что я сомневаюсь, что тебе нравится, но я слишком напряжен и скован, чтобы посмотреть на тебя. Когда ты, наконец, кончаешь, я сплевываю на землю и поднимаюсь. Поправляю резинку твоих шорт и утираю рот подолом футболки. Отряхиваю раненые мятые коленки, растирая малюсенькие капли крови вместе с пылью по коже. Я никогда не падал с велосипеда, но часто ходил с разодранными коленями.

Я смотрю на тебя снизу вверх, улавливаю на себе твой ожидающий взгляд. Сейчас как нельзя кстати в голове всплывает твое видео, записанное для меня на собственный телефон, твои развратные стоны в унисон тем, что ты допускаешь сейчас. Эхо в голове, твой молящий взгляд, отираюсь щекой о твой член, прикрывая глаза. Мне самому уже не терпится, я вижу и тебе тоже, но в этот раз я не тороплюсь. Поглаживаю яички, беру их поочередно в рот, лаская пальцами ствол. Язык скользит по всей длине, запускаю свои пальцы в рот, смачивая их слюной, а потом провожу по кончику головки, мешая слюну с твоей смазкой, провожу ей по губам и только после раскрываю рот, чтобы взять ее. Медленные движения головой, не свожу с тебя взгляда, а ты в свою очередь не отводишь своего. Размыкаю губы, вновь обхватываю его и снова выпускаю. По подбородку стекает слюна, но я уверен, что тебе нравится. Я вижу это в твоем взгляде, я слышу это в твоих стонах. Сжимаю пальцами твои бедра, чтобы лучше держаться и контролировать процесс. Я заглатываю все глубже, пока головка не упирается в дальнюю стеку, а после только увеличиваю скорость. Мну ягодицы, впиваясь с силой в них пальцами, и уже кажется, что это не ты трахаешь меня в рот, а я трахаю тебя своими губами. Ловлю себя на мысли, что таким развратным могу быть только с тобой. Никакого стеснения, никаких табу, никаких запретов. Я хочу выебать тебя во всех позах, хочу рассмотреть каждую жилку на твоем члене, которая изменилась за то время. Хочу чтобы ты взял меня так страстно, на сколько ты способен, ведь кроме как с тобой, мне ни с кем это не нужно. Смотри на меня, смотри, как мне нравится сосать твой член, как полирует головку язык и какие звуки издает твой член когда выскальзывает из моего рта. Тебя волнует то, что подумают другие, а меня то, что я не могу взять в рот еще глубже. Больше слюны, помощь руками. У меня выходит в сто раз лучше, чем в первый раз, но это только потому, что мы совершенно одни, как и мои мысли о тебе ничего не отвлекает. Я торопливо дрочу твой член в свой рот, обвожу головку языком, а после выпускаю его изо рта. Ты уже готов? Хочешь кончить мне в рот? Не останавливаюсь и не прекращаю, руки скользят вверх по животу один в один как в первый вечер, цепляю пальцами соски. Я не опускаю взгляда ни на секунду и ловлю на себе твой. Нравится наблюдать? Знаю, что ответ положительный, хочу так же смотреть как ты наслаждаешься тем, как сосешь мне. Раскрываю рот, провожу широко языком по всему стволу от яиц к головке, слизывая выделения, перемешанные со слюной. Больше распущенности, я на максимуме. Чувствую, как твой член пульсирует на влажной поверхности языка. Ещё немного. Звонкое причмокивание с которым головка в очередной раз вылетает изо рта и я чувствую, как обжигает лицо твоя сперма. Первый спуск и я заглатываю твой член, продолжая сосать, пока ты изливаешь остатки спермы в мой рот. С полураскрытых губ стекает сперма, смешанная со слюной, но я сглатываю остатки, продолжая вылизывать ствол. Собираю с него все до капли под твоим мутным взглядом.

          DEZESSETE JOVENS CONFIRMAM SUA FÉ ATRAVÉS DA CRISMA E PADRE JHON WAYAN PURNAWAN (“JOÃOZINHO”) É NOMEADO PELO BISPO DOM WILMAR SANTIN COMO PÁROCO DA IGREJA CATÓLICA NO MUNICÍPIO.      Cache   Translate Page      
Dom Wilmar Santin, Pároco Joãozinho, a Catequista Noely Kurtz e os crismandos
Os jovens...

ADVENTO:recebe este nome as quatro semanas antes do Natal. Este período litúrgico evoca a dupla vinda de Jesus Cristo: a verificada em Belém, quando Ele veio ao mundo, e a que ocorrerá no Seu regresso no Dia do Juízo. Por isso a característica deste tempo, com o qual começa o ano eclesiástico, é a purificação como preparação para receber Aquele que está para vir. O caráter penitencial do advento é acentuado pela cor litúrgica, que é o roxo. Advento é um período mencionado no calendário religioso, é um tempo de alegria para os cristãos, caracterizado pela preparação para o nascimento de Jesus. 
As jovens...
É por essa razão que hoje em dia o período do advento é definido pelas quatro semanas que antecedem o Natal, tendo início no Domingo mais próximo do dia 30 de Novembro, indo até o dia 24 de Dezembro, sendo o primeiro tempo do ano litúrgico. Segundo a Bíblia, o Anjo Gabriel apareceu a Maria numa visão, dizendo que em breve ela daria à luz a um menino, o filho de Deus que viria para trazer luz ao mundo. Esse tempo de espera é caracterizado hoje como advento. Coroa do advento: A coroa do advento é uma coroa de ramos de abeto, com quatro velas (círios), que se acendem uma após a outra nos quatro domingos do advento. 
Padre Joãozinho fazendo seu juramento
Este costume é relativamente recente, que remonta talvez ao século XIX, e que se difundiu a partir da I Guerra Mundial. Este ramo está pleno de simbolismo. A sua forma circular representa a eternidade e a sua cor remete para a esperança e vida. Em muitas coroas, existe uma fita vermelha, que simboliza o amor de Deus pela humanidade e o amor das pessoas que esperam o nascimento de Jesus. As quatro velas da coroa representam cada uma das quatro semanas e são acesas em cada Domingo do Advento.
Hora do Crisma...
A Crisma ou Confirmação, segundo a doutrina da Igreja Católica, é um sacramento em que o fiel recebe, através da ação do bispo, uma unção com a Crisma (óleo de oliveira). Trata-se de um rito em que o ministro sagrado impõe as mãos sobre os confirmandos, invocando o Espírito Santo, e os unge com óleo de oliveira. "O Crisma é um sacramento que nos dá o Espírito Santo, imprime na nossa alma o caráter de soldados de Cristo, e nos faz ser perfeitos cristãos." É uma confirmação do Batismo. A Crisma é inseparável do Batismo. Juntamente com o Batismo e a Eucaristia, por exemplo, são considerados pela Igreja Católica como sendo os "sacramentos da iniciação cristã". 
Hora da Comunhão...
A imposição das mãos é reconhecida pela tradição católica como a origem do sacramento da Confirmação. Após esse preâmbulo, Ontem, dia 01 de Dezembro de 2018, já sendo comemorado o primeiro dia do Advento, haja vista, que a celebração do sábado já corresponde a de domingo, obedecendo a normas da Igreja, tivemos a presença do Bispo Dom Wilmar Santin, que ministrou a celebração da Santa Eucaristia, juntamente com o Padre Joãozinho. Na oportunidade, com a transferência do Padre Jean Paul, que durante sua permanência em nosso município, prestou relevantes serviços, ontem, Dom Wilmar, nomeou o Padre JHON WAYAN PURNAWAN para exercer oficialmente o cargo de Pároco 
Pároco Joãozinho, acendendo a vela verde, simbolo da esperança
da Igreja Católica, neste município de Rurópolis, para o qual desejamos que DEUS lhe ilumine e que faça o seu trabalho da melhor forma possível, sempre levando a palavra do Senhor aos necessitados. Durante a nomeação, Dom Wilmar, entregou simbolicamente alguns objetos: A chave da Igreja; a chave do Sacrário; instrumento do Batismo; a Estola Rocha, que é símbolo de penitencia, e que deve ser usada quando no atendimento da confissão. Após as entregas simbólicas dos objetos que lhe impõe os direitos e deveres, Padre Joãozinho fez o seu juramento de fidelidade.

Após a confirmação da nomeação, a celebração seguiu, e logo chegou a hora do CRISMA. Com a orientação e capacitação da professora Noely Kutz, dezessete jovens foram crismados, confirmando assim a sua Fé em Cristo. Os crismados foram: Amanda Jamilly O. Silva, Arlian Jamem O. Silva, Allanya Angelina de O. Silva, Ana Clara Fraga dos Santos, Clara Irlana S. Serra, Daniele Barros Matos, Eliaby Oliveira Silva, Josivaldo de Jesus C. Mendes, Hiago Bonato dos Santos, Karollyna Mell Ramos Kurtz, Marcelle Lorrany Godoi Ferreira, Matheus Cauã Rodrigues Scalabrin, Naara Camilly Gomes de Oliveira, Sandiely Barros Matos, Taiguara da Silva Penha, Tainara Barros Matos e Vandressa Pedrosa Silva. Posteriormente ao Crisma, houve um agradecimento emocionado da Catequista Noely Kurtz, apresentação dos aniversariantes do dia, e a Benção Final. Após a realização da Santa Missa, todos se reuniram ao Barracão Comunitário, onde foi servido um farto jantar a todos os presentes. VEJA VÍDEOS E MUITAS FOTOS CLICANDO ABAIXO.

          California lawmaker tries again to gradually ban gas cars      Cache   Translate Page      
SACRAMENTO — After an unsuccessful legislative effort this year that would have eventually banned the sale of new gas-powered cars in California, Assemblyman Phil Ting returned Monday with a more modest proposal he hopes will move the state toward the same goal. AB40, introduced by the San Francisco Democrat, asks the state Air Resources Board to come up with a “comprehensive strategy” by Jan. 1, 2021, to ensure all cars sold in the state are free of greenhouse gas emissions by 2040. Ting’s proposals come as the federal government is preparing to move in the opposite direction on zero-emission cars.

CARTA APOSTÓLICA "MANE NOBISCUM DOMINE" (7 de octubre de 2004)
DEL SUMO PONTÍFICE JUAN PABLO II
AL EPISCOPADO, AL CLERO Y A LOS FIELES
PARA EL AÑO DE LA EUCARISTÍA OCTUBRE 2004–OCTUBRE 2005

INTRODUCCIÓN

1. «Quédate con nosotros, Señor, porque atardece y el día va de caída» (cf. Lc 24,29). Ésta fue la invitación apremiante que, la tarde misma del día de la resurrección, los dos discípulos que se dirigían hacia Emaús hicieron al Caminante que a lo largo del trayecto se había unido a ellos. Abrumados por tristes pensamientos, no se imaginaban que aquel desconocido fuera precisamente su Maestro, ya resucitado. No obstante, habían experimentado cómo «ardía» su corazón (cf. ibíd. 32) mientras él les hablaba «explicando» las Escrituras. La luz de la Palabra ablandaba la dureza de su corazón y «se les abrieron los ojos» (cf. ibíd. 31). Entre la penumbra del crepúsculo y el ánimo sombrío que les embargaba, aquel Caminante era un rayo de luz que despertaba la esperanza y abría su espíritu al deseo de la plena luz. «Quédate con nosotros», suplicaron, y Él aceptó. Poco después el rostro de Jesús desaparecería, pero el Maestro se había quedado veladamente en el «pan partido», ante el cual se habían abierto sus ojos.

2. El icono de los discípulos de Emaús viene bien para orientar un Año en que la Iglesia estará dedicada especialmente a vivir el misterio de la Santísima Eucaristía. En el camino de nuestras dudas e inquietudes, y a veces de nuestras amargas desilusiones, el divino Caminante sigue haciéndose nuestro compañero para introducirnos, con la interpretación de las Escrituras, en la comprensión de los misterios de Dios. Cuando el encuentro llega a su plenitud, a la luz de la Palabra se añade la que brota del «Pan de vida», con el cual Cristo cumple a la perfección su promesa de «estar con nosotros todos los días hasta el fin del mundo» (cf. Mt 28,20).

3. La «fracción del pan» —como al principio se llamaba a la Eucaristía— ha estado siempre en el centro de la vida de la Iglesia. Por ella, Cristo hace presente a lo largo de los siglos el misterio de su muerte y resurrección. En ella se le recibe a Él en persona, como «pan vivo que ha bajado del cielo» (Jn 6,51), y con Él se nos da la prenda de la vida eterna, merced a la cual se pregusta el banquete eterno en la Jerusalén celeste. Varias veces, y recientemente en la Encíclica Ecclesia de Eucharistia, siguiendo la enseñanza de los Padres, de los Concilios Ecuménicos y también de mis Predecesores, he invitado a la Iglesia a reflexionar sobre la Eucaristía. Por tanto, en este documento no pretendo repetir las enseñanzas ya expuestas, a las que me remito para que se profundicen y asimilen. No obstante, he considerado que sería de gran ayuda, precisamente para lograr este objetivo, un Año entero dedicado a este admirable Sacramento.


4. Como es sabido, el Año de la Eucaristía abarca desde octubre de 2004 a octubre de 2005. Dos acontecimientos me han brindado una ocasión propicia para esta iniciativa, y marcarán su comienzo y su final: el Congreso Eucarístico Internacional, en programa del 10 al 17 de octubre de 2004 en Guadalajara (México), y la Asamblea Ordinaria del Sínodo de los Obispos, que se tendrá en el Vaticano del 2 al 29 de octubre de 2005 sobre el tema «La Eucaristía: fuente y cumbre de la vida y de la misión de la Iglesia». Otra consideración me ha inducido a dar este paso: durante este año se celebrará la Jornada Mundial de la Juventud, que tendrá lugar en Colonia del 16 al 21 de agosto de 2005. La Eucaristía es el centro vital en torno al cual deseo que se reúnan los jóvenes para alimentar su fe y su entusiasmo. Ya desde hace tiempo pensaba en una iniciativa eucarística de este tipo. En efecto, la Eucaristía representa una etapa natural de la trayectoria pastoral que he marcado a la Iglesia, especialmente desde los años de preparación del Jubileo, y que he retomado en los años sucesivos.

5. En esta Carta apostólica me propongo subrayar la continuidad de dicha trayectoria, para que sea más fácil a todos comprender su alcance espiritual. Por lo que se refiere al desarrollo concreto del Año de la Eucaristía, cuento con la solicitud personal de los Pastores de las Iglesias particulares, a los cuales la devoción a tan gran Misterio inspirará diversas actividades. Además, mis Hermanos Obispos comprenderán fácilmente que esta iniciativa, al poco de concluir el Año del Rosario, se sitúa en un nivel espiritual tan profundo que en modo alguno interfiere en los programas pastorales de cada Iglesia. Más aún, puede iluminarlos con provecho, anclándolos, por así decir, en el Misterio que es la raíz y el secreto de la vida espiritual tanto de los fieles, como de toda iniciativa eclesial. Por tanto, no pretendo interrumpir el «camino» pastoral que está siguiendo cada Iglesia, sino acentuar en él la dimensión eucarística propia de toda la vida cristiana. Por mi parte, deseo ofrecer con esta Carta algunas orientaciones de fondo, confiando en que el Pueblo de Dios, en sus diferentes sectores, acoja mi propuesta con diligente docilidad y férvido amor.

          U.S. Department of Commerce Names Anpac Bio 2018 National Minority Health Firm of the Year      Cache   Translate Page      

SACRAMENTO, California, Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) named global life sciences corporation Anpac Bio-Medical Science Company, the 2018 "Minority Health Products and Services Firm of the Year" (MHFY).

The U.S. Department of Commerce named Anpac Bio-Medical Science Company the national, “2018 Minority Health Products & Services Firm of the Year” (MHFY). Recognized as the, “Minority-owned firm that has improved the quality and delivery of healthcare through innovation,” MBDA National Director Henry Childs formally presented the MHFY Award to Anpac Bio Chief Marketing Officer Drisha Leggitt, accepting on behalf of CEO Dr. Chris Yu and the Anpac Bio corporation at a national MBDA Awards Ceremony.
The U.S. Department of Commerce named Anpac Bio-Medical Science Company the national, “2018 Minority Health Products & Services Firm of the Year” (MHFY). Recognized as the, “Minority-owned firm that has improved the quality and delivery of healthcare through innovation,” MBDA National Director Henry Childs formally presented the MHFY Award to Anpac Bio Chief Marketing Officer Drisha Leggitt, accepting on behalf of CEO Dr. Chris Yu and the Anpac Bio corporation at a national MBDA Awards Ceremony.

Recognized as the, "Minority-owned firm that has improved the quality and delivery of healthcare through innovation," MBDA honored Anpac Bio during the 2018 National Minority Enterprise Development (NMED) Week at the National Minority Supplier Development Council Conference in Austin, Texas. The award was presented by MBDA National Director Henry Childs, II to Anpac Bio Chief Marketing Officer Drisha Leggitt, accepting on behalf of Anpac Bio Chief Executive Officer Dr. Chris Yu and the Anpac Bio worldwide team.

"We honor exceptional minority business enterprises (MBEs), their leaders, and the important role in maintaining a strong and healthy American economy," said MBDA National Director Henry Childs, II. "I am honored to recognize the 2018 National MED Week award winners who excel in business and entrepreneurship. Their stories and successes are an inspiration for all Americans. MBDA congratulates Anpac Bio-Medical Science Company for being named the 2018 'Minority Health Products and Services Firm of the Year'!"

The National Minority Business Awards are the highest level of national recognition a minority-owned firm can receive from the United States Department of Commerce. These prestigious awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of minority entrepreneurs, as well as the individuals and organizations that have demonstrated their commitment to advancing MBEs.

Acknowledging the corporation for executing significant and consistent innovation through its worldwide technology and services, Anpac Bio was particularly referenced as the national MHFY winner due the company's multiple-award winning, "Cancer Differentiation Analysis" (CDA) liquid biopsy technology.

Described as "game changing", and receiving the, "Breakthrough Innovation Award", at the World Nobel Prize Laureate Summit; and named, "Most Promising Cancer Screening Company", at the 2017 Global Precision Medicine Industry Awards, Anpac Bio's CDA reinvents early, multiple-cancer screening.

By analyzing simple, standard, blood tests, and applying Anpac Bio's proprietary, multi-level, multi-parameter, diagnostic algorithms, Anpac Bio's CDA liquid biopsy devices identify cancer with measurably-greater accuracy than most current, conventional screening methods. And it does so without any harmful side effects in patients; generating far fewer "false positives"; at a cost substantially lower than traditional testing; and generating results within minutes of submission.

Comprehensive research validity data from 120,000+ cases, and independently-corroborated by world-renowned hospitals and cancer research leaders, demonstrate Anpac Bio's CDA diagnostics consistently detect 28+ cancers -- with sensitivity and specificity rate ranges of 75%-90%. Anpac Bio is the only company fully-commercialized and generating liquid biopsy screening revenue globally; with 101+ CDA-related patents issued to date (250+ filed) worldwide.

Anpac Bio joins other prestigious, national/international 2018 MBDA award-winners, including: Coca Cola Company; MBE Capital Partners, LLC; Champion Controls, Inc.; McWong Environmental Technology; DAP Construction Management, LLC; Resource Management, Inc.; Sensis; IMR Development Corporation; and other exceptional individual award winners.

Also in attendance and celebrating their commitment to purchasing/supporting Minority Business Enterprises included: Merck, Facebook, Inc., Target Corporation, AstraZeneca Group, General Mills, Anthem Blue Cross, Toyota, IBM, Dell, Wells Fargo, Eli Lilly & Company, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, CVS Health, and the Walt Disney Company, among others.

"Anpac Bio is very honored that the United States Department of Commerce has named our company the 2018 national, 'Health Products and Services Firm of the Year'," states Anpac Bio CEO Chris Yu. "We are so appreciative our CDA liquid biopsy technology is considered the most innovative in the country. And we're particularly proud to provide cost-effective and consistently-reliable, liquid biopsy cancer screening globally; especially for minority and socio-economically challenged populations that are typically underserved by standard cancer prevention and early detection options."

          How Once-Moderate Bush Got Hijacked by the Religious Right      Cache   Translate Page      
Politics, George H. W. Bush, Religion, PoliticiansPolitics

Our October 1992 cover story explores how George H.W. Bush — desperate to be reelected — formed an unholy alliance that haunts us still. 

George H. W. BushReligionPoliticiansThe Advocate, October 20, 1992The Advocate, October 20, 1992Chris Bull

DURING HIS renomination acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention, President Bush receives wild cheers from delegates when he blasts the Democratic Party’s platform for omitting “three simple letters — G-o-d.”

Initiatives that would forbid legislators to outlaw antigay discrimination are placed on state ballots in Colorado and Oregon.

The California Board of Education rejects a school textbook because it calls for respect for gay and lesbian parents.

These developments, all of which occurred during the past year, and dozens of others like them across the country can all be traced to the growing political power of the religious right. Once regarded as a band of harmless crackpots, the religious right has managed to propel social issues — especially gay rights and abortion — to a key position on the national political agenda by sparking a fierce debate on “family values.”

“These people are diehards,” says Ann Stone, chairwoman of the abortion rights group Republicans for Choice. “They are very well-organized, and all they do is fight. We have to get the people to understand that unless they want a church state, they are going to have to get out there and fight back. Forget about gay rights and abortion rights in the kind of society these people have in mind.”

Adds Jerry Sloan, cochairman of Project Tocsin, a Sacramento, Calif., group that monitors the right wing: “Gays and lesbians have come to terms with the fact that the religious right has effectively stalled gay and lesbian political advances in some parts of the country and actually threatens to turn back the clock in others.” As a result, gay groups across the nation that would prefer to be working for positive change instead find themselves on the defensive, fighting off brush fires started by fundamentalists.

The religious right achieved its power gradually through a multifaceted strategy that targets all levels of politics — national, state, and local. The strategy’s basic components include running little-known candidates for local offices, preparing antigay ballot initiatives, organizing voter-registration campaigns, and filing legal challenges to gay rights legislation.

A key to the religious right’s success has been its use of aggressive lobbying to compel the Republican Party to adopt a conservative social agenda at the expense of moderate Republicans.

“The Right has disproportionate power, not so much because it has the numbers but because it is very singleminded in its approach to politics,” says David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union, a political group.

One need look only to the Republican National Convention in Houston last August for evidence of Keene’s assertion. At the convention, Massachusetts governor William Weld, a Republican who is one of the nations most staunchly pro-gay governors, was asked by the Republican National Committee not to address gay rights in his speech to the delegates.

But there was no similar prohibition on antigay rhetoric: Gays and lesbians repeatedly were targets of attack from the podium. In a nationally televised speech, failed presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan decreed that enactment of antibias protection for gays and lesbians is “not the kind of change we can tolerate in a nation that we still call God’s country.” And Vice President Dan Quayle told the convention that it is wrong to treat “alternative life-styles [as] morally equivalent” to traditional ones.

Quayle acts as the Bush administration’s unofficial liaison to conservatives. But on this point, he was merely parroting a position embraced two months previously by President Bush, who told The New York Times that he does not consider homosexuality to be normal. Previously, Bush had long been considered a moderate on social issues.

However, Bush and Quayle have not been entirely consistent in toeing the religious right’s antigay line. In an interview broadcast on ABC television in July, Bush said his administration had “no litmus test” that automatically excludes gays and lesbians from staff positions, and in an interview in August, he said that if he learned one of his grandchildren were gay, he would embrace him but discourage him from becoming a gay rights activist.

Throughout September, Quayle appeared to back off the antigay rhetoric voiced at the convention weeks earlier. During a campaign stop in Los Angeles, for instance, he conceded that his party has a “conservative voice and a conservative philosophy” but said he does not support the exclusion of gays and lesbians from it.

The backpedaling did not sit well with the religious right. After Bush’s July ABC interview was broadcast, Richard Land, executive director of the Southern Baptist Convention Christian Life Commission, fired off an angry letter to the president expressing “outrage and a sense of betrayal” regarding his no-litmus-test answer.

The religious right’s take-no-prisoners attitude toward homosexuality has painted the president and vice president into a corner, says Washington Post political reporter E.J. Dionne, author of Why Americans Hate Politics. Surveys consistently indicate that most voters oppose antigay discrimination, but the religious right — one of the Republican Party’s most powerful constituencies — demands strict adherence to its antigay position, he says.

“The religious right controlled many of the Republican slates at the convention and Bush tried to mollify the Right,” Dionne says. “But I think the Republicans went further than they had ever intended. They have spent the weeks after the convention trying to look like unbelievable moderates on gay rights. In Los Angeles, Quayle even used the politically correct terminology — gay and lesbian rather than homosexual.”

As a campaign theme, the family-values issue has had little impact according to a Sept. 16 New York Times/CBS News poll. Only about 1% of the respondents to the survey said the issue was their primary concern, while nearly 50% said the economy was the most important campaign issue. In fact, the Republicans’ use of the theme risks alienating mainstream voters, says political analyst Kevin Phillips, author of The Politics of Rich and Poor. Not only does the theme offer no solution to pressing problems like lack of affordable healthcare and rising unemployment, but its use makes Bush appear to shirk responsibility for the weak economy, he says.

In addition, Phillips says, use of the theme draws public attention to the Republican Party’s close relationship with the archconservatives like televangelist Pat Roberston, Liberty University president Rev. Jerry Falwell, and Eagle Forum president Phyllis Schlafly. “These people are not high on America’s list,” Phillips says. “It undercuts the whole idea of family values to identify family values with the religious right. Most Americans think that Robertsons’ rantings are off-the-wall.”

University of Southern California law professor Susan Estrich, who managed Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis’s unsuccessful 1988 campaign says that Bush’s lack of a domestic policy agenda created a vacuum in the Republican Party that the religious right is eager to fill. “George Bush stands for nothing,” she says. “What the convention demonstrated more than anything is that he will say or do anything to get votes.”

Despite its gains in the presidential campaign, the religious right’s influence is not confined to national politics. Some of its most far-reaching advantages have been on the state and local levels. “The religious right knows that the real battle over social issues is at the local level,” says Mike Hudson, legal counsel for the liberal political group People for the American Way. “The 90s will be a great battle for grass-roots control.”

Both the Oregon and Colorado initiatives have been well-funded, and each has a good chance of receiving voter approval. In September, Robertson donated $20,000 to the Oregon Citizens Alliance, the group that is backing the Oregon initiative, and announced that he would start setting up field operations in the state.

On the same day that the Oregon and Colorado initiatives will go to the voters, residents of Portland, Me., will consider a ballot referendum that would repeal a citywide ban on antigay discrimination that was approved by the city council in May. The referendum was prepared by the Christian Civic League of Maine, an antigay group that said in a public statement that opposition to gay civil rights protection is “probably the most significant moral issue facing Maine in the history of our state.” In September a fundamentalist group in Kansas City, Mo., announced that it would seek to place a similar referendum on the ballot there.

Last spring, antigay activity directly related to the religious rights growing clout flared in Florida, where the American Family Association, an antigay group headed by conservative activist Donald Wildmon, successfully lobbied the Gainesville city commission to approve a resolution condemning gay rights guarantees. At the same time, a ban on antigay discrimination enacted in Tampa suffered a setback when a circuit court judge ruled that a referendum on it must appear on the November general-election ballot.

In the neighboring Alabama, meanwhile, the state legislature enacted an Eagle Forum-backed bill that requires sex education curricula in public schools to stress that same-sex intercourse is a crime under the state’s sodomy law. Legislators also passed a bill that forbids state funds to be allocated to gay student groups.

Frequently, the religious right works to influence politics from within by dominating county Republican Party organizations. When Citizens for Liberty, an antigay group that supports establishment of a militia and elimination of the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Reserve System, gained control of the Republican central committee of Santa Clara County Calif., the California Republican Leauge, a moderate group, was so alarmed that it warned the country’s rank-and-file Republicans that the group’s agenda includes “a call for the death penalty for abortion, adultery, and unrepentant homosexuality.”

In Harris County, Tex., this year’s Republican platform alleges that homosexuality “leads to the breakdown of the family and the spread of deadly disease” and calls on the federal and state government to enforce “all laws prohibiting homosexual conduct.”

Building on its gains in county Republican organizations, the religious right has targeted state parties as well. Harriet Stinson, director of the California chapter of Republicans for Choice, says the religious right “has literally taken over” the California Republican Party by purging moderate Republicans from county central committees, running religious candidates for local and statewide seats, and harassing moderate party officials until they take extreme positions.

The religious right’s gains in California have been so great that Gov. Pete Wilson, who was considered a moderate when he was elected in 1990, has been “virtually shut out of his own party,” Hudson says. “The Right has made Wilson its lapdog on social issues,” he adds, attributing Wilson’s veto last year to the governor’s efforts to appease the religious right. When running for governor less than a year earlier, Wilson had indicated that he supported the ban.

In primary elections for the California state assembly in June, 12 of 16 candidates endorsed by the Conservative Coalition, a network of religious right groups, won their races, a better track record than that compiled by Republican candidates who had Wilson’s endorsement. The coalition donated to its candidates nearly $700,000, more than any other political action committee in the state, according to Common Cause, a nonpartisan public-interest group.

The coalition is funded by a small group of businessmen in conservative Orange County. One of them is Howard Ahmanson, whose net worth is estimated to be more than $100 million. In 1985 Ahmanson told the Orange County Register that his goal is the “total integration of biblical law into our lives.”

The religious right touts the 1990 San Diego municipal election as a model it hopes to replicate nationwide. In the election, the religious right ran a slate of 90 little-known candidates for city council and for boards overseeing schools, hospitals, and public utilities. After playing down their affiliation with the religious right, 56 of the candidates were elected.

The religious right “takes advantage of voter apathy and the anti-incumbency mood in the country,” says Kathy Frasca, a founder of the Mainstream Voter Project, a San Diego group that monitors the religious right. In San Diego the right-wing candidates’ bids for office would have failed if voters had been better informed about the candidates’ ties to fundamentalists, she says.

The religious right has made inroads in state parties outside California as well. Last May, Washington State’s Republican Party adopted a platform that calls for gays and lesbians to be barred from jobs as teachers or health care workers. The platform also advocates corporal punishment for students and denounces the practices of witchcraft and yoga in public schools. Adoption of the platform infuriated several longtime moderate Republican activists. King County Republican platform committee chairman Brett Bader called it “the most seriously off-base reckless, and damaging platform I have ever seen.”

In Iowa the state Republican Party adopted a platform this summer that calls for strict enforcement of sodomy laws, mandatory reporting of the names of people who test positive for antibodies to HIV, the virus believed to lead to AIDS, and the obligatory teaching of creation science in place of evolutionary theory.

And in a face-off last year that underscored the animosity between the Republican Party’s moderate and conservative wings, delegates to a Minnesota state Republican Party convention in St. Cloud walked out of a speech by Gov. Arne Carlson, a Republican, to protest Carlson’s decision to allow himself to be named an honorary sponser of a Minneapolis fundraiser conducted by the Human Rights Campaign Fund, a gay political group.

The religious right’s strategy has been developed and implemented by a network of organizations and leaders who are largely unknown to the public but familiar to Republican power brokers. Many of the religious right’s leaders-- including the Southern Baptists Convention's Land; Gary Bauer, executive director of the Family Research Council; Beverly LaHaye, president of Concerned Women for America; and Bob Jones III, president of Bob Jones University — met with President Bush in the White House in April. After meeting, the fundamentalists told reporters that President Bush had convinced them he shares their belief that gays and lesbians pose the greatest modern threat to traditional American values.

Along with Morris Chapman, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, a 15-million-member denomination that is the nation’s largest Protestant sect, Land has been instrumental in mobilizing support for conservative causes. Under the leadership of Chapman and Land, the Southern Baptist Convention this summer expelled two North Carolina congregation — Pullen Memorial Baptist Church and Binkley Memorial Baptist Church — for blessing the union of two gay men and licensing a gay minister.

Still, Robertson remains the religious right’s most influencial and well-known leader. Although Robertsons’ 1988 bid for the Republican presidential nomination failed, the Washington Post’s Dionne says the attempt brought national prominence to the Christian Coalition, Roberston’s political organization, which has more than 2 million members nationwide.

Robertson’s clout is further increased by his 60% ownership of International Family Entertainment Inc. (IFE), which operates the Christian Broadcasting System cable television network and is the world’s largest religious programmer. A recent public stock offering conducted by the company raised more than $150 million for Robertson and his son Timothy.

Shortly after completing the stock offering, Robertson made a $6-million bid for United Press International (UPI), a new service that declared bankruptcy earlier this year. The deal eventually collapsed, but had it been consummated, it would have provided an inroad into the mainstream media that Robertson has long sought.

At the time he made his offer for UPI, Robertson noted that “in the ‘70s, we began praying for all aspects of life — religious life, governmental life, education, the media, arts, and entertainment — and all of these facets are part of what God wants to touch. He wants to touch it with his truth and his love. This is one little chance for that to happen.” On Sept. 21, Robertson took another step into the mainstream media, announcing that IFE had agreed to in principle to purchase MTM Entertainment Inc., a Studio City, Calif., firm that produces the television series Evening Shade for $68.5 million.

Such influence seemed unthinkable in the ‘70s, when the religious right was largely unorganized and split along ideological lines. Its ranks included relative moderates like Bauer, who advocate repeal of gay civil liberties protections, and extremists like R.J. Rushdooney, who advocate establishment of a Bible-based legal system under which gays and lesbians would be subject to the death penalty.

Ronald Reagan’s 1980 presidential campaign was the pivotal event that spurred the religious right to organize, and fear of gay political advances have helped keep the coalition together since then, says Fred Clarkson, a journalist who has written extensively about the religious right. “Getting the Right to overlook its differences and work together was a real accomplishment,” he says.

Seeing a well-organized bloc of votes, the Republican Party actively courted the religious right during the late ‘70s and the ‘80s. The effort paid off: Hudson of People for the American Way says that the religious right was instrumental in electing Republican presidents in the 1980, 1984, and 1988 elections.

However, the courtship also narrowed the party’s appeal to mainstream voters. “I really don’t believe that the majority of voters goes for the hatred and extremism exemplified by the religious right,” Estrich says. “I hope that Bush keeps sucking up to the Right. It makes the Democrats that much better off.”

Even within the Republican Party, the power wielded by the religious right has been a cause for concern, creating a bitter rift between social conservatives like Robertson and Quayle and libertarians like Weld and the Department of Housing and Urban Development head of Jack Kemp. While the social conservatives concern themselves primarily with moral issues, the libertarians concentrate largely on economic matters.

The rift was illustrated dramatically in July, when former Arizona senator Barry Goldwater, a staunch right-winger who was the Republican Party’s presidential candidate in 1964, shocked political insiders by throwing his support behind a proposed ban on antigay bias in Phoenix. In announcing his position on the ban, Goldwater scolded the Republican Party, saying it allowed the religious right to lead it away from discussion of our substantive issues.

“Under our constitution, we literally have the right to do anything we may want to do as long as the performing of those acts does not cause any damage or hurt to anybody else,” Goldwater said. “I can’t see any way in the world that being gay can cause damage to somebody else.”

The schism within the Republican Party has been exacerbated by the recession, Dionne says “In good economic times, social conservatives could vote on fairly social issues, and upscale Republicans, who tend to be fairly liberal on social issues, could vote their pocketbooks,” he says. “Once the economic lubricant disappeared, the frictions heat up.”

The national debate over abortion has also widened the rift within the Republican Party. This year, national Republican officials adopted the toughest, antiabortion platform plank in history, forbidding abortion even for pregnancies that result from incest or rape. Adoption of the plank caused Republican abortion rights proponents to step up their efforts to neutralize the religious right’s influence within the party.

Rep. Tom Campbell (R-Calif.), a moderate Republican known for his support for gay and abortion rights, contended during his unsuccessful bid for the Republican nomination for a Senate seat in June that because conservatives have long opposed government intervention in private matters, a truly conservative position would be one supporting abortion rights and gay rights guaranteed.

“It’s actually a conservative position to oppose discrimination,” Campbell says. “There is no reason that groups that make bigotry a priority couldn’t feel at home in the Democratic Party. There’s nothing particularly Republican about imposing one’s values on others.”

But few other moderate Republicans are willing to link gay rights and abortion. Stone of Republicans for Choice says that even gay and lesbian Republicans “understand that it’s best to keep the two issues seperate. It remains to be seen if there is any way to work together. The likelihood of gay rights will ever be specifically addressed by the party is not great.”

As a result, the battle lines will continue to be drawn for years to come. Both gays and lesbians and the religious right “feel that they have been dumped on,” Dionne says. “The religious right feels it lost its culture in the ‘60s. It feels that it has been ridiculed by the media and by society in general. A lot of it’s anger is being expressed through attacks on gays and lesbians.”

Both sides agree that there is no middle ground. “This is the beginning of a sophisticated, well-financed backlash against gay and lesbian inroads into the media and culture that’s fueled by the religious right,” says Robert Bray, a spokesman for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, a lobbying group. Adds Steve Sheldon, a spokesman for the Traditional Values Coalition, a Southern California antigay group: “It’s a holy war that can only have one winner.”

          Mavericks wygrywają u siebie ósmy raz z rzędu. Najlepszy wynik od 2011 roku      Cache   Translate Page      

Kolejne zwycięstwo Dallas Mavericks u siebie. Tym razem drużyna z Teksasu pokonała Portland Trail Blazers 111:102. To już ósma z rzędu domowa wygrana Dallas. Tak dobry wynik osiągnęli ostatnio w swoim mistrzowskim sezonie w 2011 roku.

21 punktów zdobył Luka Doncić. 17 dołożył Wesley Matthews. Dla Mavs jest to dziewiąta wygrana w ostatnich 11 meczach.

- Być taką drużyną, jaką chcemy być, musimy wygrywać mecze u siebie. Nasza uważna gra w obronie to jest to, co naprawdę nam pomaga - powiedział Matthews.

Faktycznie defensywa Dallas sprawiła sporo problemów liderom Blazers. Damian Lillard zdobył 33 punkty, ale trafi 10 z 22 rzutów z gry i 2 z 8 za trzy punkty. Trafił natomiast 11 na 12 rzutów wolnych. Natomiast C.J. McCollum dołożył 18 "oczek", trafiając zaledwie 7 z 19 rzutów.

- Nasi zawodnicy wykonali świetną pracę realizując założenia gry w defensywie. Plan na te spotkanie nie był łatwy, ponieważ muliliśmy biegać za zawodnikami, którzy znajdują się daleko od kosza - podkreślił Rick Carlisle, trener Mavs. Jego podopieczni zajmują siódme miejsce w Konferencji Zachodniej z bilansem 12-10. W następnym spotkaniu zmierzą się na wyjeździe z New Orleans Pelicans.

- Ten mecz był bardzo podobny do dwóch naszych poprzednich. Mieliśmy słaby początek, byliśmy trochę przybici w przerwie, wróciliśmy do gry w drugiej połowie i ostatecznie przegraliśmy. Już chyba wszyscy jesteśmy tym zmęczeni - przyznał Terry Stotts, szkoleniowiec Blazers. Zespół z Oregonu plasuje się na ósmej pozycji z 13 zwycięstwami i 11 porażkami. Jego kolejnym przeciwnikiem będzie z Phoenix Suns.

          On the NBA Beat Ep. 125: James Ham: These Kings Are a “Breath of Fresh Air”      Cache   Translate Page      
The Sacramento Kings are off to a strong beginning after most expected them to finish at or near the conference's cellar. And second-year point guard De'Aaron Fox's seismic leap is a huge reason why. James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area and NBC Sports California stops by to break down the Kings' sizzling start, the organization's coach-executive drama and where the Kings go from here as they aim to get back into the playoffs for the first time in 13 years.     

Here are some particularly regal clips (*Due to dynamic advertising, time stamps may vary per listener):
 
11:39-12:14: “He [De’Aaron Fox] is incredibly talented. The way that he’s able to change speed and change direction in traffic while people are all around him, his handles, everything else is just next level. The Kings saw it the second he stepped foot on the practice floor before training camp. He lost one game of pickup in like two or three weeks leading up to training camp. He was just dominant. And they were like, ‘Holy cow. This is a different player, a completely different player.’”   

20:41-24:53: “They don’t have a 2019 draft pick, so they have no reason to lose…[Head coach Dave] Joerger has to balance winning with developing young players…Look, there’s a lot of drama, and it’s not healthy. It’s never healthy. But I think if this team can get out of its own way, they do have a shot to have a really fun and good season. And I hope that these issues go away, because they’re not fun to write about, not fun to talk about.” 

32:37-33:00: “Long term, he [Bagley] is gonna be a beast! He’s gonna be sort of a transcendent player at the position, because I think he can do a lot at the 4, and we’re only gonna see him get better. We’re only gonna see him get more confident with his ball-handling, with his shooting from the perimeter, but he has all of the tools, and I expect him to be an All-Star-level player.”   

38:40-39:55: “De’Aaron Fox has the same amount of blocked shots as him [Willie Cauley-Stein], Buddy Hield has one less, Nemanja Bjelica has one more; that’s not gonna work out. He [WCS] needs to be a defensive force…I think the Kings will allow him to set his value on the open market, and then they’ll make a decision on whether they retain him long term or not.” 

44:11-46:05: “The idea that they would be a salary dump spot, where they might get a first-round pick and just eat up this cap space that they have, I think that that idea is starting to go out the window. I do know that they’re interested in a guy like Otto Porter…What they really need is a starting-level small forward – that’s not any disrespect to Iman Shumpert who I think has been actually really good and a really big surprise for the Kings this year, but he’s 6-foot-5; he’s really a shooting guard who’s being forced to play the small forward position.”

Oops, too late

- Нельзя прожить на одной воде, - раздается назойливый голос где-то в районе моего уха. Он появляется откуда-то так неожиданно, что первая мысль, которая приходит мне в голову, это - полить его с ног до головы ледяной водой прямо из бокала. Но вместо этого я вспоминаю, что я - на мероприятии и так вести себя не положено. Поэтому только приподнимаю бровь и вежливо переспрашиваю его - в чем, собственно говоря, дело?
- Модели так следят за собой. Выпей лучше шампанского, съешь конфетку и расслабься, - я вижу, как сально блестят его похотливые глазки. И хотя можно было бы подумать, что сравнение с моделью - это своего рода комплимент, сейчас мне все еще хочется убить его голыми руками - просто из-за взгляда, которым он скользит по моему телу, в этот раз так целомудренно прикрытому платьем! Черт подери. Как жаль, что на модных показах никогда не знаешь, кто перед тобой - известный дизайнер или какая-нибудь непонятная шушера, которой можно высказать все, что о ней думаешь, в лицо. Если я сделаю нечто вроде последнего, то уж точно никогда больше не попаду никуда - ни в качестве прессы, ни, если уж на то пошло, модели, хотя я и не собиралась.
- Я не модель, - отрезаю я резко и ставлю стакан с водой на поднос проходящего мимо паренька в синем костюме. Глазами я судорожно ищу Стива - чертов парень бросил меня здесь, поскакал, задрав хвост, фотографировать моделей. А с кем осталась я? Вернее сказать - с чем?
- Да и даже если бы была ей - вода полезнее алкоголя в любом случае, - ха, ну можно было бы ввернуть пафосную фразу про то, что я вообще страдаю алкоголизмом или честно сказать, что я на работе. Но честности на сегодня с меня хватило, так же как и левых оправданий. Честное слово, если он скажет еще хоть парочку фраз, я вылью ему шампанское на голову, и закушу его же ухом.
- Чем же она полезнее? На такие мероприятия люди ходят, чтобы веселиться, а от одной воды весело не будет! - ну все, началось. Что будет дальше, он предложит мне какие-нибудь волшебные таблеточки? Или не знаю, когда там последует предложение уединиться, чтобы обсудить мой гипотетический модельный контракт или как это в фэшн-сфере делается? Так и хочется спросить его - неужели у него нет других развлечений, кроме как выедать мне мозг чайной ложечкой?
- Я в порядке, спасибо, - мне прям уже очень, очень весело. Умереть не встать, как весело. На лице, наверное, написано все, что я думаю по этому поводу, и я судорожно оглядываюсь в поисках фотографа. Таки он сбежал в гримерку к моделям что ли? Чтобы сделать парочку фото "из-за кулис"? Ну почему я не могу брать интервью у моделей, а он бы тусовался здесь и фотографировал всех подряд, включая и этого мерзкого мачо-мужика, который почему-то возомнил себя чуть ли не последним Казановой на земле. Да у меня с лейкой от душа и то более близкие отношения. Приятельственные, если можно так выразиться.
- Ты кого-то ждешь? - он продолжает приседать мне на уши, а я мило улыбаюсь ему в ответ. С тем же успехом можно было бы спросить сейчас у меня, где здесь библиотека. Или бесплатный бар, который так манит меня после всех пережитых за сегодня провалов.
- Да, жду. Позвольте пройти? - он очень неудачно загораживает проход, и проскользнуть мимо незамеченной не получится. Так и хочется в процессе наступить ему на ногу, но этот вредный подлец не особенно спешит посторониться. Да чтоб тебе в адском пекле сгореть!

          just another day in the wasteland      Cache   Translate Page      

В первые мгновения могло показаться, что ситуация так же быстро остывала, как и накалилась, люди стали рассказывать о себе, но это далеко не то, что нужно было Ванде. Ей было абсолютно все равно на Чака и то, что он работал на заводе до того, как они познакомились – это не такая интересная история жизни, что же касается Эйприл, так в ее боевой подготовке можно было не сомневаться, она лежала на уровне земли. Да, медикам есть что скрывать, зачастую это неудачные операции, которые заканчиваются летальными исходами, эксперименты с гулями или людьми на стороне, но эта девочка, именно девочка, а не женщина, не была похожа на одну из тех, кто занимается подобными вещами. Интереснее всего дело обстояло именно с миссис «я много лет верой и правдой служила НКР».
Кто-то опустил свое оружие, но почти все были готовы вновь его поднять. Ванда по-прежнему винтовку не опустила. Восемь патронов, хватит, чтобы завалить троих наверняка, все зависит о того, как быстро среагируют другие члены группы. Да уж, если начнется резня, то самые большие шансы выжить тут были только у облученного вирусом мутанта, которому нужно всадить несколько пуль малого калибра, либо одну большого, но ровно в цель, чтобы свалить его с ног раз и навсегда. Да и то, этих мутантов столько, что самых слабых можно убить в два счета, а, например, бегемота или какого-нибудь мастера, придется валить очень и очень долго, израсходовав на него несколько обойм или магазинов, а то еще и парочку гранат, которыми они, кстати говоря, так же очень любят разбрасываться.
- Поверь мне, я готова выстрелить, - ответила Ванда после того, как высказаться ей предложила Эмма. Девушка внимательно слушала каждое слово, и нашла интересным тот факт, что Кейси (если это вообще были ее настоящее имя и фамилия) избежала ответа на самый главный вопрос. По большому счету, не так уж и важно, хорошо ли она служила Новой Калифорнийской Республике, не важно, что ожидает дезертира, ведь дороги назад уже нет. Перед группой сейчас лежало лишь два пути – первый умереть на этом месте, второй – вскрыть всю подноготную каждого, чтобы таким способом хоть как-то узнать друг о друге. – Обвинить? О нет, я никого не обвиняю, меня лишь настораживает один маленький факт. Ты так говоришь об НКР, будто бы всегда была верна только им. – Ванда начала обходить Эмму полукругом, опустила свою винтовку к бедру, но по-прежнему держала «подругу» на прицеле. Даже от бедра с такого расстояния можно было весьма эффективно поразить цель, стоящую на расстоянии нескольких метров. Уоррен так же продолжал целиться, близнецы же и Ричард свое оружие так же опустили. – Цезарю нужны результаты? Не это ли сказал тебе мужчина в соседней комнате ночью? А каким был твой ответ, напомнить? «Я сделаю все возможно, и за провал мы будем отвечать вместе», - процитировала девушка, хотя и не слово в слово, однако смысл был вполне понятен. – Мне скрывать нечего, я не хочу провести здесь остаток лет, мой дом находится за несколько тысяч миль отсюда, и все, что мне нужно – вернуться. Приходилось ли мне убивать? Да, и не раз. Это были люди, мутанты, гули, животные – все те, кто мешал развитию и процветанию общества на моем побережье. Легион во главе с тем самым Цезарем как раз похожи на тех, с кем мы сражаемся в Столичной Пустоши. Говоря мы, я имею в виду жителей свободных и независимых убежищ, фермеров, обрабатывающих цветущие берега реки Потомак, ученых и исследователей из Ривет-сити, - на этих словах рыжая на секунду взглянула на близнецов с энергооружием, - а так же силы Братства. Мне бы очень не хотелось, чтобы туда пришли эти люди с мачете и в юбках. Мы собрали винтокрыл из остатков на складах Анклава, который смогли победить несколько лет назад, пытались добраться до Могильника, но потерпели крушение. Мне пришлось оставить своего бойца  в клинике, но я сделаю все возможное, чтобы вернуть домой и его. Эти люди тоже хотят избавиться от жизни, которой жили до сегодняшнего дня, и как же будет обидно, если ночью к нам в лагерь придут легионеры и уведут всех в рабство, ведь так принято делать в вашем обществе?
Это была настоящая исповедь, Ванда сказала все, что было у нее на уме, у нее на душе. Что ей было скрывать? Да особо и нечего, жизнь разведчицы была довольно-таки однообразной. Выходишь из убежища с группой, идешь туда, где еще не был, ищешь ценности и разные ресурсы, которые могу пригодиться дома, по пути собираешь крышки, возвращаешься через несколько дней назад. Еще можно было настраивать торговые связи, охранять караваны, что Ванда тоже делала. Несколько раз ее группа участвовала в отражении рейдерских налетов с юга, тогда Братство просило помощи у всех свободных людей Столицы. Говорили, что дикие племена, половина из которых были явно заражены не то лучевой болезнью, не то каким-то неизвестным недугом, двинулись с юга. Линия обороны протянулась от Александрии до Берка и дальше до Легато. Враг был остановлен, и у людей осталась возможность жить в мире и согласии. С Вашингтона были изгнаны работорговцы. Они отправились к Питту, и каждая попытка вернуться – жестоко пресекалась. Те, кто не согласился уйти, были убиты – такова суровая судьба преступников. Мутанты остались, но даже с ними попытались наладить связь, хотя это оказалось малоэффективным занятием. Здоровяки просто держали несколько кварталов города, которые остальные люди просто обходили стороной. Даже ЛиттлЛэмлайт открыл свои двери. Хотя это не совсем правильное слово для этого действия. Торговая империя Кентрберрийской общины расширилась на несколько порядков, теперь захватывала порядка тридцати населенных пунктов, ну и самих караванов стало в четыре раза больше. А что будет, если до Вашингтона доберется Легион, подминая под себя все поселения и племена, лежащие на пути – будет ад и настоящая война. Однако, у ребят в юбках вряд ли хватит сил и времени для такого марш-броска, но они с легкостью могут посылать своих тайных агентов на другой берег, чтобы те собирали информацию и вели провокационную и диверсионную деятельность. Таким агентов вполне могла стать Эмма. Она сдаст координаты ночной стоянки группы, все отправятся в рабство, а она доберется до другого берега, рассказав трагичную историю друзьям и родственникам Ванды. Те приютят «лучшую подругу» рыжей, что станет их ошибкой, возможно, последней в жизни.
- Прежде чем ответит Эмма, - заговорил Уоррен, - скажу я. Мне надоела жизнь, наскучила, она стала слишком однообразной, и этот путь – единственный способ как-то разнообразить мою реальность.
Его слова были довольно странными. Слышать их из уст молодого парня, у которого было еще полно жизненных сил, было, как минимум, непривычно. Но если такова его реальность, то с ней трудно что-то поделать. Не признавались в своем прошлом еще несколько людей из группы – среди них громила Ричард, Мозгодробитель-череполоматель с пулеметом и близнецы, которые решили выступить в самый неподходящий момент.
- Как вы уже знаете, мое имя Кайран, - начал парень, и тут же сразу его речь подхватила дама, - А я Кайла.  – Казалось, это их стандартное приветствие.
- Да, нам нужно добраться до Ривет-сити, о котором мы много слышали, - вновь сказал мужчина.
- Потому что там есть то, что мы ищем, - говорит Кайла, но тут близнец ее прерывает на полуслове.
- Кайла, протокол три-семь-браво-девявть, - и девушка умолкает, опуская оружие. – Она не человек, а робот, точнее синт, такая же, как эти две штуки, что нас охраняют, только более умная и продвинутая. Я знаю, кто ее собрал, и у меня есть несколько вопросов к этому человеку. И еще я знаю то, что есть группы, которые заинтересованы в том, чтобы секрет ее производства навсегда покоился в земле, а я смог разгадать его, даже переделал под себя, изменив внешность и часть внутренностей.  Уж не знаю, смогу ли я дожить до того момент, но мне бы очень хотелось, чтобы Кайла встретилась со своим создателем. Однако, - добавил молодой человек, - все это может обрушиться, если Вы, - сказал он, обращаясь именно к Эмме, - правда не совсем та, за кого себя выдаете. Кайла смогла проанализировать почти всех людей в казино вчера, и нашла, что мужчина в шляпе, а точнее – Алерио является легионером, причем довольно высокой должности. У нее особый дар, точнее сказать – довольно мощная анализирующее-вычислительная система, зашитая в голове, которая позволяет довольно многое рассказать о человеке, особенно, если его портреты есть в хоть каких-нибудь базах данных, и, слава создателю, его лицо было в базе разыскиваемых преступников НКР.
Именно об этом перекинулись Кейран и Ванда полчаса назад. И нужно было сказать, что именно парень стал инициатором разговора, заподозрив неладное. Везение или удача? Вряд ли. На самом деле Ванда была не таким уж и везучим человеком, просто так легли карты, обычное совпадение – не более. В любом случае, ей уж не так сильно везло по жизни. Она не родилась в какой-нибудь богатой семье, у нее не было ничего, всего она добилась сама, выбрав путь разведчицы. Ей нравилось то, что она делала, да и в крушении могла погибнуть, просто, видимо, судьба распорядилась так, чтобы Ванда (и Эмма), смогли доставить нуждающихся людей на другой конец территории, которая раньше была Соединенными Штатами.

Хэлло, итс ми! Давно уже в этой теме почитать было нечего, да? Но и сегодня я не планирую нагружать вас тоннами текста, однако завалялась у нас в закромах пара новостей, мимо которых пройти уж никак нельзя.
Во-первых, у нас снова изменения в составе амс. Отчасти это событие печальное, потому что наши стройные ряды впервые покинул один боец, а именно дед-пердед Рик, который уже не Рик, но вы его наверняка помните таким... эээ, сложно делать комплименты деду, знаете ли! Тем не менее, он внес большой вклад в развитие форуме на старте и в последующем, и мы все очень благодарны ему за старания, креативность и поддержку. Проводим бурными аплодисментами! И не менее бурно поприветствуем нашего нового смертника члена амс-состава - профессора Дамблдора можете просто звать его своим императором и падать ниц. Теперь он будет вас всячески развлекать и кормить лимонными дольками с рук, вы главное не бойтесь. Скажу по секрету (нет), опасаться надо совсем не его : D Надеюсь, мы все поспособствуем тому, чтобы для него этот опыт стал исключительно приятным и в радость, ведь вы очень любите своих админов, правда?  http://www.kody-smajlov-vkontakte.ru/emoji/D83CDF1D.png
Во-вторых, мы тут подумали и решили, что раз челленджей много не бывает, то почему бы еще не разнообразить и приукрасить ваш досуг новой фишкой. Тем более, она вмещает в себя то, что вы любите больше всего - регулярность и возможность срубить еще больше котов, БОЛЬШЕ, ЕЩЕ БОЛЬШЕ! Кхм, так вот. Теперь еженедельно вы сможете получить удвоение или даже утроение котов за определенное действие, которое будет указанно в банке, в шапке самого первого сообщения. Однако учтите, что если вы полгода котов за посты не собирали, то подсунуть их под акцию не удастся, потому что работает она, опять же, аналогично челленджу - засчитывается только то задание, которое было выполнено в период актуальности акции. Подробнее об этом почитать можно в примечаниях, да и в принципе советую в любой непонятной ситуации заглядывать именно туда!
Целую крепко, ваша репка капитан Хло!

          Dr. Kenneth "Ken" Ward Carter '52      Cache   Translate Page      

Kenneth W. Carter, age 88, of Raleigh, NC, born on July 3, 1930, and a longtime resident of Plainfield, Vermont, passed away Nov. 13, 2018, in Raleigh, having lived a hearty life filled with music, adventure and a network of loving friends and family across the country.

Ken was born in Buffalo, New York, and grew up the second of four children in a family of six, primarily in Arlington, Virginia.

He earned his undergraduate degree from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and his doctorate in psychology from Ohio State University.

Ken served in the U.S. Army during Korean War. Anyone who knew Ken knew his lifelong passion was music. His instrument was his beautiful voice. As a boy, his choir performed at the National Cathedral in Washington and as a young man, he was a member of a barbershop quartet. While raising his family in Vermont, Ken held countless musical roles with Plainfield Little Theater, Unadilla Theater, The Barre Players and A Taste of Opera. He later became a member of the Sacramento Master Singers. Ken shared his booming baritone voice at his children's weddings and as recently as four months prior to his death, he delighted residents of his independent living community with classic show tunes.

Ken was married to Mary Deuchler Carter for 49 years before her passing in 2009. For nearly 40 years beginning in the early-1960s, they were part of the fabric of Goddard College (Plainfield, Vermont) and later, Norwich University (Northfield, Vermont), where Ken taught in the graduate program and Mary directed human resources.

After retirement, Ken and Mary moved cross country to Sacramento, California, to be near their son, Chris, and his family and to experience warm weather! Ken and Mary delighted in being grandparents to Michael and were integral to his growing up, serving as preschool pickup and later, devoted fans in the stands of his baseball games.

In 2009 at age 80 and a recent widow, Ken ventured on a trip around the country, living out of a pop-up Aliner camper. He spent months on the road, with his longest stop being in Maine's Acadia National Park, where he landed his final paid job -- selling tickets for rides on the tall ships that sail out of Bar Harbor.

Ken later moved to Yellow Springs, Ohio, where he volunteered in the Antioch student co-op program that connects students with working internships all over the country, a program he participated in as a student and later helped run.

After one brutal winter in Ohio, he moved south to Raleigh, North Carolina, in 2014 to be with his three daughters and their families, including second grandchild, Katie. Daughter Lynn was his roommate for years, and served as Ken's extraordinary caregiver until his last day.

Ken is survived by four children and their families: son Christopher Ward Carter and husband Peter Morse, grandson Michael and great-grandson Mason, of Walnut Creek, California; daughter Stephanie Carter Caplan and husband Jason Caplan, of Raleigh, North Carolina, and grandchildren Hope and Cole, of Charlottesville, Virginia; daughter Lynn Carter and beloved granddog Dyna, of Raleigh, North Carolina; and daughter Laura Carter Scheid and husband Todd Scheid, and granddaughter Katie, of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

Ken was predeceased by parents Clifford M. and Sarah R. Carter, and sisters Virginia McClintock and Eleanor Payne. He has one surviving sibling, sister Ruth Sullivan, and dozens of nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews around the country.

The family welcomes donations in honor of Ken Carter to the Green Mountain Club, whose volunteers have been protecting and maintaining the Long Trail since 1910.

Джонни в поисках мамы

я гуляю по городу и жду, пока встречу в нём:
Кейт Бланшетт | Cate Blanchett

http://funkyimg.com/i/2MK9y.gif
..................................................................
Мам? Мама? Мамочка, почему ты.. плачешь?
Давай, мама, расскажи мне правду. Ты можешь мне все рассказать, твоя маленькая девочка давно выросла. Пожалуйста, мама..
Расскажи, как тебя ненавидела собственная мать.
Каждый день дома был похож на ад. Она с малых лет твердила тебе, что ты глупа, уродлива, бесполезна и испортила ей жизнь своим появлением на свет. Ты росла с этим, впитывала ее слова как губка и однажды поверила ей. А как не поверить, когда в тебя вбивают эту правду? Удары, пинки, пощечины – ежедневный ритуал. Ко всему прочему, она могла не появляться дома несколько дней без предупреждения, оставив пустым не только холодильник, но и карманы без единого цента. И ты до сих пор считаешь себя виноватой перед ней? Мама..
Расскажи, как вы сошлись с отцом.
Девушка-невидимка и обаятельный молодой кадет. Ты никак не могла поверить в то, что кто-то вроде него может на тебя посмотреть не ради смеха, а всерьез. А он был серьезен. Встречал у школы и провожал до дома. Вытаскивал в кино и кафе. Меньше чем через неделю расписал ваше совместное будущее. Моя, только моя девочка – так он говорил о тебе. И, когда в 18-й день рождения мать выгнала из дома, он привел тебя к своим родителям представив невестой. Ты была благодарна и влюблена по самые уши.
Расскажи, что было после свадьбы.
Сказка дала трещину. «Моя» - ты вздрагивала, когда он говорил это. Не туда посмотрела, не тому улыбнулась. Ты делала все_не_так. Он всегда был недоволен тобой.. дома. Часть сказанного им ты уже слышала. От матери. На публике же он пылко признавался в любви, проявлял заботу, заставлял чувствовать себя неблагодарной.
Как насчет пары слов о своих детях, мама.
Первая беременность принесла двух очаровательных и, надо сказать, долгожданных мальчиков. В семье воцарилась любовь. Ты еще никогда не видела своего мужа таким счастливым. Он носил тебя и детей на руках. Наконец ты делала все правильно. Менее чем через год была вторая беременность. Девочка. С рождением детей все невзгоды как-то позабылись или ты научилась быть той самой правильной женой своему мужу, о которой он постоянно твердил, будучи тобой недовольным? Тогда ты полюбила его еще сильнее, хотя куда уж было больше.
А что сейчас? Расскажи, почему ты все реже стала появляться на работе ссылаясь на расстройство желудкаголовную больлихорадкуслабость. Откуда у тебя этот синяк? А, случайно упала и ударилась о табуретку.. второй раз за месяц? Мам, ты себя слышишь?!
..................................................................
Больше драмы богу драмы. Хочу отыграть сложные взаимоотношения матери и дочери, когда каждая из них стоит горой за своего мужчину. А что, дочь следует примеру матери. Только не так слепо и более оправдано. Внешность, биография "до" и имя поддаются обсуждению.

MANTOVA
Divorziati "risposati", via libera alla comunione d'ufficio

La "furbata" della diocesi di Mantova: dà il via libera a un "cammino ecclesiale" per i divorziati in seconda unione che preveda anche la concessione, in alcuni casi, della comunione. Ma dalle indicazioni si capisce che in realtà il percorso dovrà avere sempre esito positivo. Nessuna traccia di pentimento, proposito di cambiare vita, castità nè definizione di adulterio. L'unico testo preso a riferimeto è il capitolo VIII di Amoris Laetitia. Per accedere ai sacramenti basta seguire un protocollo in quattro tappe. E se insorgono ostacoli il vescovo li supererà. 





Immaginate che domenica prossima, andando a Messa, sentiate tra gli inopportuni e barbosi annunci sistematicamente dati dopo la S. Comunione una cosa di questo tipo: “Comunichiamo a tutta la comunità la decisione del nostro Vescovo: a partire dal nuovo anno, la celebrazione dei matrimoni dovrà osservare la seguente normativa approvata dal Consiglio Presbiterale e dall’Ufficio per la pastorale familiare della diocesi. Il contratto matrimoniale potrà essere stipulato solo a tempo determinato; i contraenti saranno tenuti a rinnovare il contratto ogni cinque anni; in caso di mancato rinnovo, sul registro parrocchiale verrà annotato lo scioglimento del vincolo e i contraenti saranno automaticamente liberi di contrarre un’altra unione, purché sia sempre a tempo determinato”. Tipo una riforma Di Maio al contrario… Come minimo, penso, vi verrebbe un colpo apoplettico, o più comunemente “coccolone”.

Forse c'è un po’ troppa enfasi, ma più o meno è quello che devono aver provato i fedeli della diocesi di Mantova la prima Domenica di Avvento. Il loro Vescovo, Mons. Gianmarco Busca, nominato il 3 giugno 2016 da papa Francesco, il 30 novembre scorso ha scritto una lettera a tutti i fedeli per l’inizio del nuovo anno liturgico della Chiesa, nella quale si dà questo annuncio: “Da oggi i fedeli divorziati e risposati, o che comunque vivono una seconda relazione in modo stabile, possono intraprendere un cammino ecclesiale di riconciliazione, che, in alcuni casi, potrà sfociare nella possibilità di accedere al sacramento della penitenza e alla comunione eucaristica. Le indicazioni diocesane per questo cammino sono contenute in un piccolo documento che è già disponibile in tutte le parrocchie”, e che abbiamo trovato sul sito della diocesi.

Senza voler mancare di rispetto a nessuno, di fronte ad un annuncio così, l’alternativa da capire è se ci si trovi di fronte ad una barzelletta, ad una lettera scritta da qualcuno che non conosce nemmeno l’ABC del catechismo, oppure ad un furbone. Che significa che “da oggi i fedeli divorziati e risposati possono intraprendere un cammino ecclesiale di riconciliazione”? Ma perché, in diocesi di Mantova prima questi fedeli non si potevano riconciliare con la Chiesa? E non lo potevano fare tramite il sacramento della penitenza, che non è mai un atto individuale del penitente, anche se si trova da solo con il sacerdote? E in tal modo non potevano accedere all’Eucaristia? Se sì, ma allora, che senso ha un avviso del genere?


Basta vedere il volantino. “Cammino ecclesiale” è ormai sinonimo di strane strategie pastorali partorite da menti contorte… Nel nostro caso si tratta di un cammino in quattro tappe, con due parole chiave, dice il Vescovo: discernimento e misericordia. E’ la strada della pastorale dei protocolli, accade da un po’ di anni quando si va dal dottore: una volta il medico ti visitava, cercava di capire come mangi, come dormi, come vivi, e prima di indicarti l’assunzione di un farmaco, provava anche con i rimedi della nonna, che tanto stupidi non erano. Adesso segue i protocolli...

Dunque, il protocollo prevede una prima tappa con un sacerdote o un laico preparato, il quale “dopo aver ascoltato e compreso la situazione e percepito una sensibilità di fondo ad una revisione di vita, presenta al fedele la proposta diocesana”, cioè lo spedisce ad uno dei sacerdoti presenti nell’elenco sul volantino e preparato dal Vescovo. Una specie di triage.

Seconda tappa: il sacerdote incaricato e solo lui, deve fare tre cose. Verificare se sia possibile percorre la strada della nullità del matrimonio. Poi verificare e incentivare l’osservanza dei doveri civili e di quelli derivanti dalla precedente relazione; nessun accenno all’osservanza dei doveri religiosi legati al matrimonio contratto. Va bè, tanto Dio è misericordioso... Infine preparare un percorso personalizzato di preghiera, opere di carità, etc.

Terza tappa: “E' coerente ed auspicabile che, a un certo punto, il prete incaricato del percorso e il fedele giungano alla persuasione che il cammino è stato positivo”. Per la serie: il protocollo in ogni caso dev’essere percepito come positivo. Dunque, questo percorso-per-forza-di-cose-positivo, prevede l’invio al parroco di competenza, il quale pare debba ratificare l’esito del discernimento, assolvendo il fedele ed ammettendolo all’Eucaristia.

E’ anche possibile che “il percorso penitenziale possa arrivare a configurare un discernimento che suggerisce prudentemente al fedele di non accostarsi ai sacramenti”. Qui non è dato sapere se sia il parroco o il sacerdote incaricato a dire che non è il caso, o meglio, secondo il verbo curialese, a comunicare che il discernimento è andato configurandosi in una direzione che non consiglia prudentemente l’accesso ai sacramenti… Come in ogni protocollo, la tappa tre prevede anche che nel database si infilino dei file che bloccano il sistema: in questo caso il sacerdote incaricato può rivolgersi al tecnico, cioè “il Vescovo o un suo incaricato che lo aiuti a sbloccare le difficoltà che avverte”.

La quarta e ultima tappa prevede l’accoglienza della comunità, che deve però rispettare la riservatezza, e soprattutto la “catechesi ordinaria” nella quale sia “presentata e globalmente conosciuta l’Esortazione apostolica Amoris Laetitia, il suo spirito e la sua applicazione diocesana”.

Non c’è traccia della necessità di pentimento con il proposito di non peccare più; non c’è traccia del fatto che i rapporti extraconiugali, quale che sia la motivazione, sono rapporti adulteri; non c’è traccia della necessità di vivere come fratello e sorella. E non c’è traccia di catechesi sul matrimonio alla luce della bimillenaria tradizione della Chiesa e del Catechismo, ma solo di Amoris Laetitia.

Allora adesso è chiaro perché solo “da oggi i fedeli divorziati e risposati possono intraprendere un cammino ecclesiale di riconciliazione”. Perché “cammino ecclesiale” significa ormai ottemperanza di pratiche burocratiche, uffici, commissioni, protocolli da seguire, operatori. E’ la Chiesa che si adegua al mondo: oggi, per uno Stato, il problema non è se si possa uccidere o meno un innocente, ma se lo si faccia seguendo la normativa vigente. Se gli spari, magari perché ti è entrato in casa per rubare e lo ammazzi ti arrestano, ma se gli togli da mangiare e da bere in un letto di ospedale, seguendo i protocolli, puoi stare tranquillo.

E così per l’adulterio: se l’adulterio non diventa stabile e non segui il protocollo ecclesiale, col piffero che puoi accedere ai sacramenti! Ma se invece prometti fedeltà nell’adulterio, e percorri tutte le tappe per benino, allora sei riconciliato con la Chiesa. E quindi anche con nostro Signore, al quale, a quanto pare, non resta che ratificare il corretto adempimento del protocollo pastorale.

LA DISPUTA CON PADRE CAVALCOLI - RISPOSTA ALLE ARGOMENTAZIONI SULLA MESSA CATTOLICA E IL RITO RIFORMATO, CON QUALCHE DIGRESSIONE SUL CONCILIO


Ut in omnibus honorificetur Deus


Caro e reverendo Padre,

con viva gioia ho letto la Sua risposta, per la quale desidero ringraziarLa. Questa disputa ci vede impegnati su fronti opposti su alcuni punti che spero possiamo entrambi contribuire a chiarire, specialmente a vantaggio dei nostri Lettori; nondimeno, mi consola vedere che Ella ha a cuore il bene della Chiesa, nei cui confronti si percepisce un sincero amore filiale. Credo tuttavia che questo amore si trovi messo a dura prova dall’infedeltà di molti i quali, costituiti in autorità, si adoperano per oscurare lo splendore della Sposa dell’Agnello, sostituendole un’immagine posticcia e disonorevole. Su questo credo che anch’Ella non possa dissentire: mai come oggi la Signora delle genti appare in molti dei suoi Ministri umiliata e negletta. 

Dev’esser fonte di grande sofferenza anche per Lei, reverendo Padre, assistere allo scempio; specialmente quando chi ne è responsabile adduce a giustificazione delle proprie azioni quelle stesse fonti e quegli stessi documenti - primi tra tutti, gli atti conciliari - cui Ella attinge per confutarli. E non è il solo: molti pii Ecclesiastici, ed anche alcuni studiosi laici, si sono cimentati nell’arduo tentativo di mostrare l’assoluta ortodossia dei documenti del Vaticano II e del Magistero ad esso ispirato, inclusa la riforma liturgica. 

Non è questa la sede per affrontare una discussione interminabile, che comunque ci porterebbe fuori strada. A mio parere, non è tanto in causa l’ortodossia del Concilio nei suoi testi; né la presunta distorsione che di quel Concilio si sarebbe fatta nel cosiddetto postconcilio; né la possibile interpretazione cattolica di testi che, per la loro equivocità oggettiva, inducono i Novatori ad interpretarli in senso non cattolico. 

Va pur detto che nessun Concilio precedente al Vaticano II venne messo in discussione per la sua ortodossia, né prestò il fianco ad interpretazioni eterodosse, giacché alla formulazione della parte discorsiva, pur chiarissima, si affiancavano sempre canoni a condanna degli errori che si opponevano alle verità definite. E mai, nella storia della Chiesa, un Concilio Ecumenico ebbe unpostconcilio che ne stravolgesse il magistero. 

Se questo è avvenuto solo per il Vaticano II, ci dovremmo interrogare se i Sacri Pastori si siano resi docili al soffio dello Spirito Santo, o se piuttosto il Paraclito non sia dovuto intervenire quasi contro la loro volontà, impedendo che la Chiesa docente formulasse proposizioni inequivocabilmente eretiche. A quell’intervento divino dobbiamo forse attribuire la Nota praevia che corresse una sentenza eretica in Lumen Gentium. Ma Ella riconoscerà quanto sia inaudito che un solenne documento magisteriale necessiti di una correzione ex post, peraltro considerata dai Novatori come un cedimento di Paolo VI all’ala conservatrice dei Padri, quindi trascurabile da parte degli esperti. Queste mie osservazioni da una parte confermano l’intervento della divina Provvidenza, ma allo stesso tempo sono prova di una oggettiva problematicità del Concilio Vaticano II; una problematicità che, come dicevo poc’anzi, non ha mai riguardato alcun Concilio precedente. É quindi evidente che, se l’assise in cui venne concepita la riforma liturgica si presta ad un’interpretazione eterodossa, come dimostrano le argomentazioni dei Neomodernisti, non stupisce che anche il Novus Ordo stesso sia informato ad analoga equivocità. Il quale Novus Ordo, per sola grazia di Dio ed in virtù delle promesse del Salvatore, ha mantenuto quegli elementi sostanziali che permettono di considerare la Messa montiniana pienamente valida. Ma la validità di una Messa - come ho scritto nel mio intervento precedente - garantisce alla Santa Chiesa di mantenere il Sacrificio Eucaristico e trasmettere ai fedeli la Grazia, ma non toglie minimamente quel suo peccato d’origine che grava su di essa, specialmente se la si confronta con il rito antico. 

L’errore in cui molti, animati da sincero amore per la Chiesa, sono incorsi ed incorrono ancor oggi è il non voler comprendere la realtà, limitandosi nella loro analisi degli atti magisteriali - e la Liturgia è uno di questi - all’aspetto meramente giuridico-canonico. Io stesso, in tempi ormai remoti, dinanzi al sovvertimento generale della Chiesa, non potei credere che il Signore avesse abbandonato il Suo gregge, né che i Sacri Pastori fossero diventati tutti, indistintamente lupi rapaci. E così cercai di dimostrare - anzitutto a me stesso - che il Vaticano II, se interpretato secondo le regole generali proprie alla dottrina cattolica, non contenevano alcunché di eretico. Altrettanto fecero, con risultati certamente più autorevoli ed argomentati, non pochi eruditi. Ed è proprio così, infatti: poiché è regula fidei che una proposizione equivoca debba esser letta in senso cattolico, in ragione dell’analogia fidei ed alla luce delle fonti, ossia della Sacra Scrittura e della Tradizione. Quindi ciò che il Concilio dice riguardo alla libertà religiosa andrebbe interpretato coerentemente con la Mortalium animos, ad esempio. Ma quello che in punta di diritto tranquillizza il teologo o il canonista, dimostrandogli che la Santa Chiesa non erra nel proprio Magistero, è vanificato e contraddetto dalla prassi comune di chi sistematicamente - e senza alcuna correzione da parte dell’Autorità suprema - considera la Mortalium animos e la condanna dell’indifferentismo religioso da parte del Magistero preconciliare chiaramente superate dalla Dignitatis humanae, giungendo a veder realizzato nella pratica quello che la Mortalium animos esplicitamente condanna e che l’interpretazione più ovvia del documento conciliare viceversa pare autorizzare. 

Poco importa che si ricordi che l’ecumenismo, così com’è praticato oggi, sia condannato senza appello dalla Chiesa: solo pochi anni prima del Concilio, la Suprema Sacra Congregazione del Sant’Ufficio raccomandava: «La dottrina cattolica dovrà dunque essere proposta ed esposta totalmente ed integralmente: non si dovrà affatto passare sotto silenzio o coprire con parole ambigue ciò che la verità cattolica insegna sulla vera natura e sui mezzi di giustificazione, sulla costituzione della Chiesa, sul primato di giurisdizione del Romano Pontefice, sull'unica vera unione che si compie col ritorno dei dissidenti all'unica vera Chiesa di Cristo. Si insegni loro che essi, ritornando alla Chiesa, nessuna parte del bene che, per grazia di Dio, è finora nato in loro, ma che col loro ritorno questo bene sarà piuttosto completato e perfezionato. Non bisogna però parlare di questo argomento in modo tale che essi abbiano a credere di portare alla Chiesa, col loro ritorno, un elemento essenziale che ad essa sarebbe mancato fino al presente» (Istruzione Ecclesia Catholica agli Ordinari diocesani, sul Movimento ecumenico, 20 Dicembre 1949).

Eppure, in nome del Concilio abbiamo visto sacrificare agl’idoli nelle chiese di Assisi; in nome del Concilio il Vicario di Cristo si è fatto segnare col sigillo di Shiva in fronte; in nome del Concilio abbiamo visto dei Vescovi offrire libagioni ai demoni, e padre Sosa Abascal pregare dinanzi al simulacro del Buddha. Ora, se l’interpretazione del Concilio secondo cui la Chiesa approva la communicatio in sacris con gli acattolici fosse condannata dall’Autorità suprema, si potrebbe affermare che effettivamente, al di là dell’equivocità oggettiva del testo, la mensdell’estensore è stata affermata e difesa in senso cattolico, con la relativa condanna degli errori opposti, e la punizione di chi quegli errori pervicacemente abbraccia. Ma ciò non solo non è avvenuto, bensì ha trovato tra i più strenui sostenitori dell’interpretazione eretica gli stessi Pontefici, ad iniziare dagli abbracci di Paolo VI con lo scismatico Atenagora, per continuare con l’empio incontro di Assisi voluto da Giovanni Paolo II, puntualmente ripetuto da Benedetto XVI. Senza ricordare le celebrazioni di funzioni liturgiche con ministri di culto eretici: anglicani, luterani, valdesi, calvinisti ed eterodossi d’Oriente. L’attuale Pontefice ha anche avuto modo di spiegare diffusamente il proprio pensiero in occasione della visita al tempo valdese in Roma, fornendo ad un’azione scandalosa e gravissima ex se anche una base ideologica: la predicazione della Chiesa volta alla conversione, secondo Bergoglio, sarebbe «il veleno più forte contro l’ecumenismo», ed il proselitismo «una solenne schiocchezza». La qual cosa è poi teorizzata dallo stesso Ratzinger, che ha recentemente respinto come «supidaggini grottesche» anche solo il poter ipotizzare che la Chiesa voglia convertire gli Ebrei e pregare perché riconoscano ch’Egli è il Figlio di Dio ed il Messia promesso nell’Antico Testamento. 

Così, il pio teologo si rassicura affermando che il Concilio non è eretico, mentre il suo Superiore lo invita all’incontro di preghiera dove un muftì canta dal pulpito di una chiesa cattolica i versetti del Corano, o durante il quale un pastore luterano comunica i proprj fedeli usando le stesse specie che il sacerdote cattolico ha appena consacrato. E lo stesso pio teologo, che guarda a Roma come ad un faro di Verità, potrà ricevere dalla loggia di San Pietro la benedizione del Papa assieme a quella di un laico vestito da Arcivescovo; e potrà assistere alla Cappella Papale per la solennità dei Santi Apostoli Pietro e Paolo, alla quale partecipano degli scismatici, per compiacere i quali il Simbolo Niceno-Costantinopolitano è stato sostituito con il Simbolo degli Apostoli. E il pio teologo potrà affermare che il Credo apostolico non è eretico - ci mancherebbe! - ma non mi persuaderà mai che l’omissione del Credo in cui si afferma esplicitamente che lo Spirito Santo procede dal Padre e dal Figlio - qui ex Patre Filioque procedit - non sia stata voluta per non offendere coloro che negano il Filioque. Poco importa se si offende la Divina Maestà, negandoLe la professione di fede per rispetti umani: la forma è salva, la Messa non è eretica e non è eretico nemmeno l’augusto celebrante che ha approvato e voluto questa censura, in nome dell’ecumenismo conciliare. 

Ecco l’errore, reverendo Padre: considerare il Concilio come un atto giuridico-canonico, valutandolo secondo i parametri e ricorrendo agli strumenti di interpretazione proprj alla Chiesa Cattolica, quando in realtà il Concilio è stato pensato, diretto e condotto a termine usando i sistemi ed i mezzi della Rivoluzione, ad iniziare dall’abile gestione del voto nelle Commissioni, che ha trovato del tutto impreparata la maggioranza dei Padri. Sulla carta, esso rimane un Concilio cattolico, anche se per farlo bisogna stiracchiarne il contenuto e costringerlo a forza all’interno dell’ortodossia; ma in realtà l’effetto che esso ha avuto ed ha tuttora è contrario alla dottrina e, guardacaso, perfettamente coerente con l’interpretazione più ovvia dei suoi testi. Il risultato è sotto gli occhi di tutti: chi è ortodosso si sente l’animo in pace perché può dimostrare che la Chiesa non erra; chi è eretico continua implacabile a diffondere i proprj errori, non solo senza alcuna correzione da parte dell’Autorità suprema, ma addirittura con il suo attivo incoraggiamento e partecipazione. E quel che è peggio è che, mettendosi in pace la coscienza con la mera constatazione che la Chiesa non erra nei suoi atti magisteriali, i buoni non combattono più, o lo fanno con armi spuntate, mentre i malvagj sono lasciati liberi di agire impunemente, con grave danno per le anime. 

Se mi permette una similitudine, il Suo atteggiamento - e quello di molti altri confratelli - fa pensare ad un cavaliere che crede di dover affrontare in duello un nemico che rispetti le regole della cavalleria, mentre dall’alto un drone silenzioso gli sgancia delle bombe addosso. Giacché le regole, per il Neomodernista, sono utili solo se servono per il proprio scopo, mentre si possono violare ed ignorare impunemente se questo è strumentale al perseguimento del fine. Così si può scomunicare il vescovo ribelle che rifiuta il Concilio, ma allo stesso tempo imporre la berretta cardinalizia ad un teologo eretico; si può commissariare una Congregazione religiosa sulla base di accuse infondate, ma nominare l’idolatra padre Sosa Abascal quale Preposito generale dei Gesuiti, o mons. Rodriguez Carballo segretario della Congregazione dei Religiosi, dopo il disastro economico in cui ha lasciato l’Ordine dei Frati Minori quand’era Ministro Generale. O sospendere a divinis un domenicano che ha detto nientemeno che il terremoto è un castigo divino, ma lasciare al suo posto un confratello che bestemmia la Ss.ma Eucaristia. O costringere alle dimissioni il Gran Maestro del Sovrano Ordine di Malta, ed imporre con metodi staliniani il reinsediamento dell’Ospedaliere che ha distribuito preservativi. E tutto avviene potendo contare sull’obbedienza dei buoni, i quali non si capacitano che l’Autorità possa abusare del proprio potere, per conseguire scopi intrinsecamente perversi. 

Il problema di fondo è che la Gerarchia, pur dandosi come ogni società perfetta delle leggi coerenti con il fine della Chiesa, non può limitarsi ad una farisaica osservanza dei precetti: essa non sarà giudicata da Dio sulla base del Diritto Canonico, ma sull’esser stata essa fedele custode del gregge affidatole dal Signore. Perder di vista lo scopo principale della Chiesa, in nome di una speculazione astratta, ricorda il comportamento del servo che, avendo ricevuto un talento dal suo padrone, glielo restituisce dicendo: «Abscondi talentum tuum in terra: ecce habes quod tuum est» (Mt XXV, 25). Il servo buono e fedele deve moltiplicare i talenti ricevuti, per non sentirsi ammonire dal padrone: «Serve male, et piger», ed esser gettato nelle tenebre esteriori, dov’è pianto e stridor di denti. Duole riconoscere che troppo spesso quel talento non solo non è stato investito perché rendesse, ma è stato dilapidato o gettato nel fango. 

L’atteggiamento di chi copre con una coltre di correttezza legale le nefandezze della setta conciliare non ha nulla a che vedere con la pietas dei figli di un Noé ebbro e discinto, ma con quel «Vos videbitis» con cui Pilato, avendo demandato al popolo sobillato dal Sinedrio la scelta di chi condannare tra Cristo e Barabba, rispettò la legge ma mandò a morte il Salvatore. Né servirà, dinanzi al Tribunale di Dio, ripetere le parole del Prefetto della Giudea: «Innocens ego sum a sanguine justi hujus». 

Quindi, per riassumere: le mie osservazioni sul Concilio e sulla Nuova Messa non vertono sull’aspetto giuridico-canonico né dell’uno né dell’altra: chi ha concepito quello e questa sapeva benissimo che non avrebbe ottenuto il proprio scopo proclamando apertis verbis una dottrina palesemente eretica. Ciò che cerco di far comprendere a chi mi legge - e a Lei, reverendo Padre - è che ci troviamo in una situazione di crisi gravissima, nella quale i nemici di Dio sono penetrati in seno alla Chiesa, oscurandola, eclissandone l’insegnamento, e soprattutto usando con astuzia luciferina la sua struttura, le sue leggi ed i suoi Ministri per demolirla dall’interno. La Chiesa rimane santa e continua a non errare: lo sappiamo e sarebbe blasfemo affermare il contrario; ma i suoi membri costituiti in autorità, coloro che sono insediati nella Gerarchia, o sono nemici dichiarati, o cooperano per pavidità e per interesse, o tacciono colpevolmente. E l’hanno fatto sin dal Concilio, prima respingendo gli schemi preparatorj che l’Episcopato mondiale aveva contribuito a redigere e che la Curia Romana aveva predisposto; poi manovrando con metodi dolosi le Commissioni; quindi ottenendo l’approvazione dal Papa e dai Padri; infine, imponendo una lettura eterodossa del Concilio senza alcuna condanna efficace da parte dell’Autorità suprema. 

La Messa riformata riassume perfettamente questo disegno criminoso. Formalmente ineccepibile, farisaicamente ortodossa, come tutto ciò che è frutto del Nemico; ma abilmente concepita per mostrarsi nella sua componente eversiva non appena divenuta di uso comune. Rimane una Messa, ma non lo è più. Certo, vi si compie il Santo Sacrificio, se chi celebra lo fa con l’intenzione, usando la materia del pane e del vino e ripetendo la formula consacratoria essenziale ad validitatem. Infatti il chierico cui in Seminario si insegna che la consacrazione è una formula magica, o che non è corretto parlare di transustanziazione ma di transignificazione; il sacerdote che ad una lezione di un teologo progressista si sente dire che la Messa è un banchetto dell’assemblea in cui i fedeli sono tutti celebranti in virtù del sacerdozio comune; il prete che usa biscotti e succo d’uva, o che pensa che la Cena luterana sia la stessa cosa della Messa cattolica, non compie il sacrificio. Ma questo avviene, ed avviene - guardacaso - solo da quando esiste il Novus Ordo. E quel che ho visto in Germania negli anni Ottanta - ad esempio il parroco di Heidelberg che concelebrava abitualmente col pastore luterano e «consacrava» ostie lievitate col miele - oggi si vede anche in Italia, nelle chiese delle grandi città come nelle pievi, appena il vecchio parroco è sostituito dal pretino che ha studiato a Roma o ha conseguito la licenza in un Istituto di Scienze Religiose.

Ed anche se la Messa rimane valida - cosa che dobbiamo sperare avvenga nella maggior parte dei casi - il messaggio ch’essa veicola è completamente diverso da quello dell’antico rito. Anche qui, proprio come per il Concilio, non ci si deve fermare all’aspetto tecnico, ma guardare quel che succede nella realtà delle comunità ecclesiali; vedere lo stato di abissale ignoranza in cui versano i fedeli a causa dell’istituzionale rinuncia ad insegnare la dottrina e la morale; guardare con quale abbigliamento e quale irriverenza essi si accostino all’altare per comunicarsi; chieder loro se si siano confessati prima di ricevere il Corpo del Signore. E constatare quale sia l’atteggiamento del Clero all’altare, che da solo sconfessa ogni velleitaria difesa del rito montiniano. 

Il disastro appare nella sua devastante realtà, e come risponde la Gerarchia? Di fatto revocando la scomunica ai divorziati, grazie ad Amoris laetitia; autorizzando la Comunione nella mano, proprio quando nei fedeli - e nel Clero stesso - è messa in dubbio la Presenza Reale così come la intende la Chiesa; sommergendoli di letture veterotestamentarie, quando non conoscono nemmeno le beatitudini o le parabole; parlando di accoglienza, mentre siamo invasi dal Turco. E quel Turco, a differenza degli eunuchi romani, non ha avuto un Concilio: egli considera il Corano un testo sacro, crede che la sua religione sia l’unica vera, ed è disposto a morire per essa. Noi lo consideriamo un fanatico, ma a ben vedere è solo coerente col credo che professa, ancorché falso. Mentre noi Cattolici, che abbiamo la grazia incommensurabile di esser figli di Dio e membri dell’unica Chiesa di Cristo, ci sentiamo ripetere sin dal più alto Soglio che la coerenza con la propria fede è dogmatismo, formalismo, ipocrisia. Che si salvano tutti, ad eccezione dei buoni Cristiani. Che l’Islam è religione di pace, che Lutero era un’anima bella, che gli Ebrei custodiscono la Parola di Dio e che la Bonino è una donna formidabile. Che Giuda non era un traditore. 

Questo processo di dissoluzione non è iniziato col Concilio, sia chiaro: esso rimonta a decenni prima, quando gli stessi che poi troveremo come consultori nella Commissione per la Sacra Liturgia iniziavano a girare gli altari, ad usare i paramenti gotici al posto della pianeta romana. Ed era tutto perfettamente ortodosso, si capisce: compresa la Settimana Santa riformata sotto Pio XII e la riforma delle rubriche del Messale e del Breviario sotto Giovanni XXIII. Tutto perfetto, inappuntabile, proprio come la Costituzione Sacrosanctum Concilium. Ma chi oserebbe negare che metter mano alla forma della Messa, sopprimere certe preghiere, togliere le profezie alla Veglia pasquale, far recitare il Pater noster da tutti i fedeli avrebbe poi ineluttabilmente condotto - col senno di poi - a quel che vediamo oggi nelle nostre chiese? Anche qui: non si può guardare l’aspetto formale perdendo di vista la mens che vi sta dietro.

Concordo con Lei che anche la Missa sine populo si rivolge alla Chiesa militante, purgante e trionfante: lo dice la dottrina cattolica. Ma chieda, padre Giovanni, chieda ad un sacerdote se celebra la Messa quotidiana se non ha fedeli: Le dirà che non ha senso, che preferisce concelebrare con i confratelli invece di offrire il Santo Sacrificio da solo. Perché di fatto egli nega ciò che pur la Chiesa afferma. E nega implicitamente che si renda gloria a Dio in modo più efficace con la celebrazione di tante Messe private piuttosto che con una concelebrazione di molti sacerdoti, che è e rimane un Sacrificio del solo celebrante principale, e chesulla carta spiega chiaramente che le offerte che il sacerdote percepisce dal fedele non si applicano alla concelebrazione: ma quanti di loro ricevono l’offerta per dieci messe e leggono i nomi dei defunti ad una Messa sola, o ne fanno memoria tra sé, mentre se ne stanno comodamente in parte con la stola? 

Lo stesso avviene per l’amministrazione della Comunione: provi a mandare un laico da un parroco qualsiasi, domandandogli di comunicarlo. Gli dirà di aspettare la Messa, adducendo mille scuse e mille ragioni, ma di fatto facendo comprendere che considera presente il Corpo di Cristo solo limitatamente alla celebrazione, e non perdurante anche dopo. La forma è salva: esiste anche il rituale riformato per l’amministrazione della Comunione fuori dalla Messa (anche se le assomiglia molto); ma posso garantirLe che nella quasi totalità delle chiese nessun sacerdote comunicherebbe un fedele senza che partecipi all’Eucaristia.

Quanto all’uso di spostare il tabernacolo in una zona appartata per favorire l’adorazione ed il raccoglimento, questa è certamente una cosa lodevole, a giudicarla imparzialmente. Ma nella liturgia cattolica croce, tabernacolo, sacerdote e altare si trovano tutti nello stesso punto: Nostro Signore presente realmente nel Ss.mo Sacramento, presente in immagine nel crocifisso, presente nel Suo ministro che agisce in persona Christi e presente nell’altare, che simboleggia Cristo. Nella liturgia riformata la croce è spostata su un lato (salvo rarissimi casi), il tabernacolo è confinato in un angolo, l’altare di pietra è quasi ovunque un tavolo e il sacerdote vaga per il presbiterio quasi tutto il tempo della celebrazione. Nessun documento nega espressamente la Presenza Reale, per carità: ma autorizza pratiche che nei fatti la negano o la sminuiscono. Provi a guardare quanti sacerdoti genuflettono entrando o uscendo di chiesa, o anche solo passando dinanzi all’altare; guardi in quante chiese si celebra dando le spalle al tabernacolo e alla croce.

La liturgia riformata proibisce espressamente la celebrazione della Messa coram Sanctissimo, mentre essa è prevista nella liturgia tradizionale. E non troverà nessun’eresia nel documento che impone questa prassi, ma comprenderà che mentre nel rito antico si voleva ribadire il dogma secondo il quale Nostro Signore è presente tanto nel Ss.mo Sacramento esposto sull’altare quanto nelle specie consacrate sul corporale, proprio contro l’errore protestante; nel nuovo rito si induce a credere che non abbia senso offrire il Santo Sacrificio davanti alla Vittima divina. E questo perché? Perché si vuol metter l’attenzione sull’aspettocomunitario della celebrazione. E se chiede ad un prete qualsiasi il motivo di questa norma, Le elencherà tutte le obiezioni dei luterani, non una esclusa, che gli hanno insegnato in Seminario. Peccato che in quello stesso Seminario non gli abbiano spiegato con altrettanta sollecitudine ciò che insegnava abitualmente la Chiesa fino al famigerato Concilio. 

La stessa cosa vale per le Messe celebrate contemporaneamente, che una volta erano prassi non solo per il gran numero di fedeli e di sacerdoti, ma anche perché la concelebrazione era limitata al rito dell’Ordinazione. La norma generale attualmente in vigore le proibisce categoricamente, ed anzi proibisce pure l’erezione degli altari laterali, ordinando che quelli esistenti siano lasciati spogli e che le nuove chiese abbiano un solo altare. La giustificazione è ovviamente ineccepibile: per focalizzare l’attenzione dei fedeli sulla celebrazione, che dev’essere unica come una è l’assemblea. Ma nei fatti ciò che si nega è il dogma secondo cui più Messe si celebrano, più si rende gloria a Dio e maggiori sono i frutti di Grazie che ne derivano alla Chiesa ed ai fedeli. E non lo si nega ufficialmente, non sia mai: si insinua l’idea, si indica la strada, si creano le premesse, in modo che il messaggio giunga a destinazione senza formalmente infrangere alcuna norma, né pronunciare alcuna eresia. Ma se chiede lumi ad un qualsiasi sacerdote, avrà conferma che invariabilmente, all’omissione di una verità di fede, corriponde la diffusione dell’errore ad essa opposto. Eppure non vi è nulla di più cattolico che veder celebrare più Messe in una stessa chiesa, la qual cosa non solo ha un valore altamente dottrinale, ma risponde anche all’esigenza pratica del fedele, il quale può assistere al Santo Sacrificio più volte, con tutti i beneficj spirituali che ne derivano. 

Ella scrive: «La Chiesa cattolica è sempre apostolica. Per questo, se decide una riforma del rito della Messa, lo fa sempre con la sua autorità apostolica. E se un Concilio ecumenico decide una riforma della Messa, non lo farà evidentemente per far fare alla Chiesa un passo indietro, ma un passo avanti. Altrimenti, che senso ha una riforma?» 

Me lo chiedo anch’io: che senso ha una riforma che rappresenta un passo indietro? Sono perfettamente d’accordo con Lei, ma mi pare che Ella sposti l’attenzione sul dato teorico, senza voler guardare la realtà. Davvero Ella ritiene che la liturgia riformata rappresenti un progresso rispetto al fervore, alla devozione ed alla vita cristiana quali si potevano osservare nei fedeli di tutto il mondo ad esempio negli anni Cinquanta? Come si può negare che la liturgia - indipendentemente dall’intenzione di chi l’ha approvata - abbia dato frutti più copiosi nel Clero e nel popolo cristiano, quando le chiese che sino a ieri erano piene di fedeli hanno iniziato a svuotarsi proprio in concomitanza con la promulgazione del Novus Ordo? quando i Conventi ed i Seminarj hanno subito un decremento impressionante di vocazioni appena la nuova liturgia vi è stata imposta? quando la frequenza ai Sacramenti è precipitata ai minimi storici in tutti i paesi, indipendentemente dalle vicende delle nazioni, ma solo come conseguenza della crisi conciliare? Dov’è questa fantomatica primavera, in nome della quale si costruirono enormi seminarj, rimasti quasi immediatamente vuoti? 

Riformare significa ridare la forma originale. Si riforma qualcosa che è deformato. Così il Tridentino riformò il Clero, la cui condotta si era rilassata e la cui disciplina necessitava di una severa correzione. San Pio V - e prima di lui san Gregorio Magno - riformarono la Messa perché in tutto l’orbe cattolico vi fosse un unico rito romano; la Chiesa riformò anche i riti proprj agli Ordini religiosi, come ad esempio quello domenicano, affinché ciò che in essi era peculiare fosse conservato e, dove necessario, marginalmente semplificato. Quindi, niente da dire sulla teorica possibilità che la Chiesa, com’è suo sovrano diritto, promulghi una nuova edizione del Messale, del Breviario o di qualsiasi altro libro liturgico. Ciò che invece contesto - e non sono il solo, ovviamente, anzi di sicuro sono il meno autorevole in tale materia - è che quanto affermò il Concilio sia contraddetto nei fatti da ciò che chiunque poteva constatare nel 1970 e che oggi è ancor più chiaro. É pur vero che la Chiesa non voleva fare un passo indietro, e probabilmente non lo voleva nemmeno la maggioranza dei Padri; ma questo passo indietro c’è stato, ed è innegabile che questo sia da attribuirsi al Concilio ed alla riforma liturgica. Non si può cambiare la realtà per adeguarla ad una teoria astratta: non tanto perché la teoria sia falsa - laddove essa riposi sulla solida roccia della dottrina - ma quanto piuttosto perché non sta scritto da nessuna parte che la Gerarchia sia infallibile sempre e comunque, né che il Papa parli sempre ex cathedra, perché ciò ripugna non solo al dogma cattolico, ma anche al buon senso. 

Il Papa dovrebbe parlare sempre come Padre comune del popolo cristiano; la Gerarchia dovrebbe aver sempre a cuore la salute eterna delle anime; i sacerdotidovrebbero esser casti e pii e spirituali. Ma nella storia della Chiesa vi furono casi in cui un Papa insegnò o aderì a dottrine eretiche e fu condannato, senza per questo far venir meno la promessa di infallibiltà fatta da Cristo a San Pietro ed ai suoi Successori; e quante volte vi furono Vescovi eretici, sacerdoti sacrileghi, chierici simoniaci, intere nazioni in cui l’alto Clero scendeva a compromessi con il potere civile o si alleava con gli eretici? Chi formulò le tesi eretiche del Conciliabolo di Pistoia, se non Vescovi e Prelati? Quanti Presuli aderirono all’eresia luterana, quanti religiosi abbracciarono lo scisma anglicano? Non era Giuda un apostolo? Non tradì Cristo anche Pietro, rinnegandoLo per tre volte? 

E non credo di doverLe ricordare che la possibilità che vi sia un Papa eretico fu studiata e dibattuta da illustri dottori e canonisti e teologi, senza che questi mettessero in dubbio la divina missione della Chiesa o l’infallibilità papale. Anzi: è proprio perché il Cattolico è estremamente realista che riesce a distinguere tra la santità della Sposa di Cristo e l’indegnità dei suoi Ministri, così come distingue tra il Sommo Pontefice e colui che ne ricopre il ruolo. Così non posso non dissentire quand’Ella sostiene: «Il Papa non può peccare contro la fede, perché gode dell’assistenza che Cristo ha concesso a Pietro: confirma fratres tuos. Il Concilio Vaticano I non dice «solo» ex cathedra, ma semplicemente «ex cathedra», come dire che il Papa, quando ci insegna il Vangelo, non sbaglia e non fa sbagliare, anche se concede un’intervista in aereo  o trasmette un twitter. «Dottore privato» non vuol dire che può dire eresie, ma che si tratta di opinioni personali, sempre, s’intende, nell’ambito dell’ortodossia. Un Papa può esprimere errori storici, scientifici o filosofici, ma non può insegnare eresie. Papa Francesco sembra a volte eretico per l’ambiguità o equivocità o avventatezza o imprudenza di certe sue espressioni. Ma se ci sforziamo di fare un’interpretazione benevola, ci accorgeremo che non sbaglia e non ci inganna». 

Io contesto fermamente l’affermazione di una assoluta infallibilità papale, non limitata né dall’intenzione esplicita di insegnare, né dalla coerenza dell’insegnamento proposto con la Sacra Scrittura e la Sacra Tradizione. Inutile dilungarmi: questa è una tesi erronea, insostenibile ed eretica. E mi permetto di farLe notare, reverendo Padre, che sostenere che il Papa parli sempre nell’ambito dell’ortodossia ci conduce alla conclusione che, nel caso affermi incontestabilmente vere e proprie eresie - non potendo egli errare in materia di fede nemmeno mentre parla con la Bonino o Scalfari - l’unica alternativa è che egli non sia Papa, la qual cosa risolve certamente il problema, ma autorizza a ritenere di essere in Sede Vacante almeno da tre Pontificati. Le ricordo che Benedetto XVI ha formulato proposizioni materialmente eretiche in Introduzione al Cristianesimo, e che l’ha fatto con la competenza del teologo e con la consapevolezza di quel che diceva, a differenza delle boutades di Bergoglio. Se veramente si dovesse accettare che un Papa non può errare nemmeno come dottore privato, se ne ricaverebbe che sul Soglio di Pietro è stato posto un antipapa, con la conseguenza che la Chiesa sarebbe stata privata per anni di una guida visibile. Questa è papolatria, superstizione papista, quale appare nella peggior letteratura anticattolica. 

Ma torniamo alle Sue argomentazioni. 

Riferendomi alla modifica ex post dell’art. 7 dell’Institutio Generalis, palesemente eretica o quantomeno favens haeresim, la definivo «un’operazione che suona come un maldestro tentativo di mantenere in vita un monstrum liturgicum con una specie di sanatio in radice più che discutibile». Ella risponde dicendo che «Non si tratta di nessuna sanatio in radice, perché la radice è sana». Ma la sanatioriguarda l’art. 7, che esplicita la mens giuridica del nuovo rito. Il legislatore definiva la Messa in senso non cattolico, o non prettamente cattolico, al punto che gli stessi luterani affermarono, alla promulgazione del rito, che finalmenteesso poteva essere usato anche da loro, che pur negano tutti i dogmi riguardanti la Messa. Sulla base di quella definizione fu redatto l’Ordo Missae, effetto immediato della mens del legislatore. Se ad un anno di distanza si modificò sostanzialmente l’art. 7, coerenza avrebbe voluto che si cambiasse anche il rito che ne è scaturito. Che la Messa sia rimasta valida, non toglie il dato di fatto: semmai conferma che, nonostante il legislatore avesse promulgato la primaEditio typica, la Provvidenza si è degnata di garantire quegli elementi indispensabili ad validitatem. E sappiamo, come Ella giustamente ricorda, che i frutti copiosi del Santo Sacrificio sono indipendenti dalla dignità del ministro celebrante, e direi anche dalle vicissitudini del rito stesso. 

Ella osserva: «Il Vetus Ordo, anche se non è più il rito ordinario, non é affatto abolito nella sua sublime bellezza, ma resta come monumento immortale della pietà della Chiesa, frutto di una progressiva evoluzione ideata e realizzata da pastori santi nel corso dei secoli passati». Eppure, se questa nostra disputa si fosse tenuta solo il 6 Luglio 2007 (il giorno prima della promulgazione del Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum), Ella avrebbe dovuto sostenere esattamente il contrario: poiché Paolo VI, in virtù della sua Autorità Apostolica, dichiarò abolito il venerando rito precedente, obbligando l’intera Chiesa di rito romano ad adeguarsi al Novus Ordo. Dello stesso tenore furono anche i pronunciamenti della Congregazione per il Culto Divino e di altri Dicasteri Romani, che indicarono senza alcuna deroga che la liturgia tridentina era definitivamente soppressa e soppiantata da quella riformata. Tant’è vero che a quella norma si accompagnò immediatamente anche la soppressione del Sacro Suddiaconato (tanto in odio ai soliti eretici), che non avrebbe potuto essere abolito se non si fosse abolita anche la liturgia che quell’Ordine prevedeva, e con specifiche funzioni. Stessa sorte ebbero anche l’Ostiariato, il Lettorato e l’Esorcistato, che assieme al Suddiaconato costituivano un fastidioso intralcio al dialogo ecumenico. Se Ella avesse voluto celebrare la Messa tridentina negli anni Ottanta, avrebbe fatto la fine ch’è toccata a tantissimi sacerdoti: l’ostracismo, il trasferimento o la sospensione a divinis. A quell’epoca, anche solo nominare un versetto dell’antico rito era motivo sufficiente per esser rimossi da qualsiasi incarico pastorale, e non sono leggende di qualche prete rancoroso, ma triste e dolorosissima esperienza di tante anime sacerdotali, morte di crepacuore nel veder come si era ridotta la Chiesa. 

E poi, diciamolo una volta per tutte: un vero Cattolico non vive di ricordi, né dinostalgie, che posson servire per consolare i pusillanimi e gli spiriti romantici. Io non ho nessuna nostalgia per il rito medievale, e non ho alcun problema a riconoscere l’autorità della Chiesa nel legiferare in materia liturgica. Ciò che non approvo è veder scientificamente smantellata la liturgia, per sostituirvi un rito spurio che di fatto fa la gioia dei nemici della Chiesa e che, guardacaso, è l’unico che un eretico può celebrare, ad esempio usando la Prex Eucharistica II, ch’è tanto breve ed omissoria da lasciarsi usare anche da un calvinista. Il quale invece inorridisce per il Canone Romano, ed ancor più per quell’Offertorio che il nuovo rito ha sostituito con una preghiera rabbinica. Il sacerdote tridentino offre lavittima immacolata con Abele, il sacerdote conciliare offre il frutto della terra e del lavoro dell’uomo con Caino. Entrambi gli Offertorj non rendono valida o invalida la Messa, ma certo è che il primo esprime quel dogma che il secondo deliberatamente tace; se non lo fa per negarlo, che scopo aveva modificare questa preghiera, e sopprimere il Veni, Sanctificator, che ribadisce il valore sacrificale della Messa? Dov’è il passo avanti rispetto al rito antico? 

Così Ella sostiene che «il Novus Ordo non è per nulla gravemente omissorio», salvo contraddirsi affermando: «in esso sono assenti elementi o parti, che, in considerazione della più sobria religiosità moderna e delle esigenze ecumeniche, potevano costituire fattori disturbanti». Ella in pratica conferma che alcuni elementi erano «fattori disturbanti» in ragione delle «esigenze ecumeniche», ossia che per compiacere gli eretici si sia preferito tacere delle verità dottrinali, sorvolare su alcuni concetti. Strano apostolato, quello della chiesa conciliare: anziché convertire chi sbaglia in una materia tanto delicata, si è preferito lasciarlo nell’errore, ed esporvi allo stesso tempo anche i proprj fedeli. I quali infatti, assieme ai loro preti, non credono quasi più alla dimensione sacrificale della Messa. 

E glossa, con un’ingenuità che suscita quasi tenerezza: «Bisogna riconoscere che il rinnovamento dell’architettura sacra, degli arredi sacri, dell’arte e della musica sacra non sempre è stato felice. Ma la colpa non è del Concilio, bensì di infiltrazioni modernistiche». Bonvenuto nel club, reverendo Padre! Le dò una notizia: quelle «infiltrazioni modernistiche» c’erano sin dal Concilio, che si beò di chiamare come consultori tutti quei personaggi discutibilissimi che sino al Pontificato di Roncalli eran stati condannati dal Sant’Uffizio, sospesi dall’insegnamento, cacciati dagli Atenei Pontificj e dai Seminarj. Tutti riammessi bellamente da Giovanni XXIII e da Paolo VI, e non ad insegnare in un seminario sperduto, ma nientemeno che ad orientare e manipolare i più importanti documenti del Vaticano II e, con essi, anche la divina Liturgia. I modernisti non si sono svegliati a Concilio concluso, ma erano all’opera sin dalla sua convocazione, come hanno testimoniato sia i Padri nei loro diarj, sia gli stessi interessati nelle loro corrispondenze, ormai divenute di pubblica ragione. 

Parlando poi della Consacrazione, «che il Concilio si è guardato bene dal modificare», devo dissentire. É pur vero che la parte essenziale della Consacrazione non fu modificata; ma essa subì nondimeno due cambiamenti. Il primo consiste nello spostamento delle parole «Mysterum fidei» che, come un’esclamazione, il celebrante pronuncia sul calice: esse furono poste dopo l’Elevazione, prevedendo in risposta l’acclamazione dei fedeli «Mortem tuam annuntiamus Domine, etc.» che appartiene alla liturgia protestante. Faccio inoltre notare che, appena disceso Nostro Signore nelle Specie Eucaristiche, il riferimento escatologico «donec venias» («nell’attesa della tua venuta») è quantomeno pedagogicamente fuori luogo. 

La seconda modifica è più sottile ma non meno grave, anche se tale da non cambiare la sostanza. Essa consiste nell’aver mutato la punteggiatura e la stampa tipografica della narrazione dell’Istituzione. Infatti, nell’antico rito il sacerdote inizia con le parole «Qui pridie quam pateretur», rievocando l’Ultima Cena, quando prese il pane nelle Sue mani sante e venerabili, lo spezzò, lo diede ai Suoi discepoli e dis

PADRE CAVALCOLI A CESARE BARONIO: VETUS ORDO, NOVUS ORDO, MESSE PROFANATE E LITURGISTI ERETICI.


Cari Stilumcuriali, continua il dialogo fra Cesare Baronio e padre Giovanni Cavalcoli iniziato qualche giorno fa e che verte in questo momento soprattutto sulla celebrazione della messa, Vetus Ordo o Novus Ordo. Padre Cavalcoli ci ha inviato le sue risposte alle obiezioni avanzate da Cesare Baronio. Con piacere le condividiamo con voi.

                                                                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Risposta a Baronio
Caro Baronio,
ho scelto, per le mie risposte, i suoi punti che mi paiono più significativi.
Ob.1.Nel Novus Ordo è previsto un rito della Messa cum populo ed uno della Messa sine populo, come se, quando il sacerdote si volge per il Dominus vobiscumnon si rivolgesse all’intera Chiesa militante, purgante e trionfante, ma solo ai fedeli fisicamente presenti.
Risposta – Il celebrante del Novus Ordosi rivolge alla Chiesa militante, purgante e trionfante anche quando è da solo.
  1. Ciò che considero invece un hapax è l’invenzione di due forme liturgiche del medesimo rito, così come la si è avuta con il Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificumdi Benedetto XVI. In questo testo legislativo il Rito Romano viene ad avere due voci, una straordinaria ed una ordinaria, facendo sì che la Chiesa di Roma legga la sua preghiera ufficiale con due voci. In teoria, al di là della novità della soluzione adottata da Benedetto XVI, si potrebbe anche concedere che vi siano due forme nello stesso rito, così come ci sono diversi riti nella medesima Chiesa Cattolica.
  2. L’hapax in liturgia non è qualcosa che deve sorprendere, ma è un fatto che testimonia della creatività dello Spirito Santo, come per esempio i tratti unici del Triduo Pasquale o la liturgia del Mercoledì delle ceneri. Il fatto che ci siano due voci testimonia semplicemente della possibilità di esprimere la Parola di Dio più modi.
  3. Quindi, per usare un espressione propria alla disputa teologica, concedo, e sono d’accordo che in astratto sia possibile che la Chiesa dia facoltà ai fedeli di assolvere legittimamente al precetto, assistendo alla Messa celebrata in una forma o in un’altra.
Tuttavia, distinguo. I fedeli, cioè, sono liberi di scegliere o la Messa Vetus Ordo o quella Novus Ordo, se entrambe le forme sono identiche quanto alla sostanza. Questo presuppone che forma ordinaria – Novus Ordo– e straordinaria – Vetus Ordo– assolvano perfettamente alle finalità loro proprie ed allo stesso tempo esprimano la medesima fede, sia in modo prossimo che remoto. Se ciò è certissimo per la Messa antica, di istituzione apostolica, non può esser detto invece per la Messa riformata, che rispetto alla prima è gravemente lacunosa.
  1. – La Chiesa cattolica è sempre apostolica. Per questo, se decide una riforma del rito della Messa, lo fa sempre con la sua autorità apostolica. E se un Concilio ecumenico decide una riforma della Messa, non lo farà evidentemente per far fare alla Chiesa un passo indietro, ma un passo avanti. Altrimenti, che senso ha una riforma?
  2. Chi ha inventato il Novus Ordo… ha voluto mantenere il rito limitandosi a correggerne l’elemento causale, senza metter mano al risultato finale. Un’operazione che suona come un maldestro tentativo di mantenere in vita un monstrum liturgicumcon una specie di sanatio in radicepiù che discutibile.
  3. – Non si tratta di nessuna sanatio in radice, perché la radice è sana. Fuori metafora: la riforma conciliare si è semplicemente rifatta alla radice, ossia alla causa efficiente della Messa, che è l’azione cultuale celeste di Cristo Sommo Sacerdote. Da questa causa evidentemente sgorgano gli effetti, che costituiscono quelli che Ella chiama «risultato finale», ossia i frutti abbondantissimi di grazia dell’azione liturgica, fons et culmen totius vitae christianae.
  4. – L’aver abolito un rito venerando che esprime perfettamente la fede cattolica, per sostituirlo con un rito che, se non eretico, quantomeno è gravemente omissorio, è un’operazione già di per sé censurabile e riprovevole.
  5. – Il Vetus Ordo, anche se non è più il rito ordinario, non é affatto abolito nella sua sublime bellezza, ma resta come monumento immortale della pietà della Chiesa, frutto di una progressiva evoluzione ideata e realizzata da pastori santi nel corso dei secoli passati.
Il Novus Ordo, però, non è per nulla «gravemente omissorio», ma in esso sono assenti elementi o parti, che, in considerazione della più sobria religiosità moderna e delle esigenze ecumeniche, potevano costituire fattori disturbanti, mentre sono stati aggiunti aspetti più consoni alle simbologie ed alla sensibilità moderne, alla mentalità comunitaria – per esempio lo scambio della pace – e alla partecipazione dei fedeli, comprese le donne, nonché una più ricca presenza della Parola di Dio. Bisogna riconoscere che il rinnovamento dell’architettura sacra, degli arredi sacri, dell’arte e della musica sacra non sempre è stato felice. Ma la colpa non è del Concilio, bensì di infiltrazioni modernistiche.
Il sacro silenzio non è stato più riservato alla recita del canone, che invece è stato visto come Parola da ascoltare assieme. Invece il silenzio è stato riservato ad alcuni momenti significativi, ossia a dopo la lettura del Vangelo, in mancanza dell’omelia, per ruminare la Parola e a dopo la Comunione, per assimilare il Pane eucaristico. Il Tabernacolo del SS.mo è stato spostato in un degno luogo, adatto all’adorazione, per far meglio capire che l’altare non è la sede del SS.Sacramento, ma è l’altare sul quale si celebra il Sacrificio e la mensa alla quale ci si nutre del Corpo di Cristo.
La maggior quantità di letture bibliche, la varietà dei canoni, dei prefazi, delle benedizioni solenni e delle Messe votive o per varie circostanze o le Messe in lingua volgare o vernacola rappresentano una grande ricchezza liturgica, che testimonia del  fatto che il formulario della Messa può variare senza che muti la sostanza della Messa. È ovvio che restano le parole essenziali ad validitatemdella Consacrazione.
  1. – Col Novus Ordo i sacerdoti hanno accettato un rito compromissorio che rende meno onore a Dio e che santifica di meno le anime, quando c’era un rito perfetto e non vi era alcuna ragione per abrogarlo.
  2. – Anche i riti della Chiesa sono perfettibili, in quanto prodotti della sapienza e dell’arte umane. Sappiamo bene come la Messa Tridentina sia il risultato di una lunga evoluzione precedente. Parlare quindi di un rito «perfetto», elaborato dall’uomo, non pare il caso. Rito perfetto è solo quello istituito da Gesù Cristo, nella fattispecie la formula della Consacrazione, che il Concilio si è guardato bene dal modificare.
Quanto al mutamento del rito della Messa introdotto dal Concilio, non credo che si abbia avuto la pretesa di elaborare un rito più perfetto, ma semplicemente adatto alle esigenze ed ai caratteri della Chiesa di oggi, così come sono state delineate dal Concilio.
Non si è dunque trattato di un rito «compromissorio», quasi a metà tra l’ortodossia e l’eresia e neppure difettoso rispetto al Vetus,ma si è trattato di un nuovo rito, un Novus Ordo, con una sua originalità e una sua propria perfezione. Lo si è sostituito al Vetus,che appariva espressione di un clima ecclesiale superato dalle nuove esigenze liturgiche e pastorali, nonchè dalla nuova ecclesiologia e sacramentaria elaborate dal Concilio Vaticano II.
Questo non vuol dire che gli aspetti del Vetus venuti meno nel Novus non mantengano un loro diritto di cittadinanza nella Chiesa. In tal senso possiamo dire che Vetus Novus si integrano a vicenda. Quindi non ha senso né accogliere solo il Novus, né accogliere solo il Vetus. Ma ognuno, potendo, scelga come preferisce. Altrimenti, si adatti. È normale, d’altra parte, che le Messe d’orario parrocchiali siano del Novus Ordo. Gli Istituti religiosi possono godere di maggiore libertà, per non parlare delle associazioni laicali.
C’è altresì chi propone che la Chiesa elabori un terzo rito, che sia la sintesi dei pregi del Vetuse del Novus. Ma a me pare un’utopia. Abbiamo bisogno di stabilità e non di mutamenti. Ognuno dei due riti ha una sua compiutezza, un suo ordine interno, una sua coerenza, una sua bellezza, che rappresenta l’effetto di un piano lungamente e sapientemente studiato, sicchè è bene lasciarli come sono. Sarebbe come voler modificare un’opera di Tiziano con una di Raffaello: che senso avrebbe? Mescolereste voi un quadro dell’uno con un quadro dell’altro?
  1. Del Novus Ordo oggi si sono visti gli amari frutti. Porre quindi sullo stesso piano il Vetus Ordo ed il Novus può esser tollerabile, se l’intenzione è di sostituire progressivamente il Vetus al Novus,agendo con prudenza di governo; ma è inaccettabile se l’operazione mira allo scopo contrario, accontentando i critici del rito riformato ma allo stesso tempo chiedendo loro di accettarlo come legittimo.
  2. – Non è pensabile che la Chiesa, dopo aver deciso il Novus Ordo per ordine di un Concilio Ecumenico, possa avere in animo di tornare al Vetus. Amari frutti non sono venuti affatto da una diligente e regolare celebrazione del Novus, chè anzi essa ha dato abbondanti frutti di santità – basterebbe pensare alle celebrazioni di S.Paolo VI o S.Giovanni Paolo II – ma dalla sua storpiatura ad opera di scriteriati celebranti modernisti, se di «celebrazione» si può parlare o non piuttosto di sciatterie o di carnevalate. Di recente – non faccio il nome – ho visto la foto di un Arcivescovo in bicicletta nella sua cattedrale rivestito degli abiti liturgici. Suppongo che avesse fatto tardi ad arrivare in chiesa.
Del resto, occorre dire con franchezza che se oggi gli amanti del Vetus Ordo curano la celebrazione con diligenza, il ricordo che ho di certe Messe ascoltate da bambino prima del Concilio è penoso. Il problema, dunque, non è quello del rito migliore o peggiore. Il problema è quello del celebrante, che oggi purtroppo è indisciplinato, per non dire eretico. Per cui la colpa di ciò non è del Novus Ordo, ma dei Vescovi, che non vigilano sulla correttezza delle celebrazioni, quando non sono loro stessi a dare scandalo.
  1. Io dico: «L’importante è che sia i fedeli che il celebrante rispettino le relative norme della celebrazione con diligenza e senza confondere le une con le altre».
Lei obietta: anche su questo punto posso esser in accordo con Lei, quindi concedo. Ma, di nuovo, distinguo. Una cosa infatti sono le modifiche arbitrarie alle rubriche che non inficiano la validità del rito. … Altra cosa è mutare sostanzialmente le parole della Consacrazione – come avviene indicativamente solo nel rito riformato, per via dell’uso della lingua vernacolare – cosa che rende la Messa invalida, e ciò è vero per entrambe le forme liturgiche.
R.. – È purtroppo vero che ci sono casi di celebranti del Novus Ordo che cambiano le parole della Consacrazione. Tuttavia, dovrebbe essere evidente a tutti che queste gravi profanazioni, che sconfinano nei sacrilegi, sono dei puri e semplici sfacciati tradimentidel Novus Ordo.
Ma,  più in radice, le Messe profanate dipendono  da concezioni eretiche della Messa, per le quali se ne nega il carattere di sacrificio, come in Lutero, o si sostiene con Schillebeeckx che anche un laico può dir Messa o si confonde, con il liturgista Andrea Grillo, la transustanziazione con l’impanazione o consustanziazione luterana, o perché si disprezza l’adorazione eucaristica, come fa Hermes Ronchi o perché si paragona la Comunione eucaristica al rapporto sessuale, come fa il Padre Timothy Radcliffe. È chiaro che tutte queste tesi nulla hanno a che vedere col Novus Ordo, ma sono, come Lei dice, un Novus Horror, Messe sataniche, degne del più smaccato esoterismo massonico.
  1. Ma nella Messa tridentina non è permesso ai laici toccare le Sacre Specie, né ricevere la Comunione nella mano o stando in piedi. Viceversa, questo è ammesso, ed anzi ormai divenuta prassi abituale, nel rito riformato. Ora, è evidente che non stiamo parlando di diversa sensibilità liturgica, o dell’altezza del pizzo di un camice: il rispetto che i gesti di adorazione della Messa antica esprimevano sono stati sostituiti da gesti di irriverenza nella Messa nuova.
  2. – Non mi sento affatto di qualificare i suddetti gesti ufficialmente consentiti dalla Chiesa, come «gesti di irriverenza nella Messa nuova». Non nego che l’inginocchiarsi e la Comunione in bocca conservino un alto simbolismo religioso. L’inginocchiarsi esprime la supplica e il piegare la nostra volontà alla santissima volontà di Dio, è omaggio alla sua divina maestà. La Comunione in bocca vuol dire l’atto di ricevere in noi il Signore in stato di piena sottomissione a Lui.
Il simbolo del «toccare» è indubbiamente significativo. Il toccare rappresenta un contatto diretto, una comunione, una confidenza. Può esser bene non toccare il sacro, così come può esser bene toccarlo. Il non toccarlo sottolinea la nostra indegnità o incapacità di toccarlo. Il toccarlo esprime confidenza e comunione. Il Vetus Ordo si pone sulla prima linea; il Novus, sulla seconda.
Ma anche i diversi gesti del Novus Ordo sono ricchi di significato. Stare in piedi davanti a Dio è l’affermazione consapevole della nostra dignità, della quale Egli stesso è il creatore e il garante; siamo suoi interlocutori. La Comunione nella mano significa il cibo divino a nostra disposizione. Ci viene dato, ma lo possiamo prendere. La duplice serie di gesti, dunque, serve chiaramente ad esprimere in pienezza, sotto diversi aspetti, la nostra devozione, il nostro omaggio, la nostra adorazione, la nostra riconoscenza.
  1. Le rubriche dell’antico rito prescrivono che le azioni sacre siano compiute dai Sacri Ministri, mentre nel nuovo i laici e addirittura le donne entrano ed escono dal presbiterio – che si chiama così perché vi stanno i presbyteri – e vi proclamano le letture, distribuiscono la Comunione. Non sono abusi, sia chiaro: sono tutte cose previste dalla liturgia riformata, proprio in nome di quella actuosa participatioe di quel sacerdozio comune dei fedeli che è insinuato sin dall’art. 7 dell’Institutio Generalis.
  2. – Il Vetus Ordo evidenzia la distinzione fra clero e laici, fra popolo e pastori; e ciò fa capire l’ufficio proprio del sacerdote, che è quello di offrire il sacrificio e di istruire, guidare e santificare il popolo, ufficio distinto da quello del laicato, che è quello di assistere devotamente all’azione liturgica del celebrante, assumendo il frutto del sacrificio, che è il corpo del Signore.
Invece il Novus Ordo, senza affatto negare la distinzione di grado e di essenza fra sacerdozio ministeriale e sacerdozio dei fedeli, concepisce il popolo di Dio come popolo sacerdotale, sicchè il fedele non solo assiste all’azione del celebrante, ma vi concorre attivamente con l’offerta di se stesso.
L’idea dell’assistere alla Messa, oggi trascurata o dimenticata, è invece ancora valida, Assistere e partecipare alla Messa non si escludono affatto, ma rappresentano i due atti essenziali del fedele presente alla Messa. Noi assistiamo a qualcosa che non possiamo fare. Ed è precisamente l’atto del fedele, che non ha il potere di consacrare le oblate: questo è ciò che sottolinea il Vetus Ordo. Il partecipare esprime invece il sacerdozio comune dei fedeli, perché è la comunità che compie il sacrificio insieme col celebrante: «il mio e il vostro sacrificio». Ed è ciò che esprime il Novus..
  1. Nella Messa cattolica si celebra in forma incruenta il Sacrificio di Cristo sulla croce, mentre quella conciliare è «la sacra sinassi o assemblea del popolo di Dio, presieduta dal sacerdote». Presieduta, ossia in cui con una visione tipica della mentalità moderna il celebrante diventa presidente dell’assemblea, e il suo ruolo di alter Christus è offuscato dal sacerdozio comune dei fedeli, su cui il Vaticano II ha insistito sin troppo a danno del sacerdozio ministeriale, per compiacere ai Protestanti.
  2. – La definizione della Messa come «sacra sinassi o assemblea del popolo di Dio, presieduta dal sacerdote» non è sbagliata, ma è troppo generica e si presta ad essere confusa con la Cena luterana. Indubbiamente la definizione precisa ed inequivocabile è quella tradizionale: «celebrazione in forma incruenta del Sacrificio di Cristo sulla croce». La prima definizione è nata da uno sforzo ecumenico, ma non mi pare consigliabile.
  3. E’ evidente che il rito riformato è stato redatto sulla falsariga del rito antico, ma privato di parti importantissime. Il rito riformato si dimostra lacunoso ed omissorio rispetto all’antico, e questo lo rende de facto meno buono del Vetus Ordo. La liturgia tridentina è migliore di quella conciliare.
  4. – Il rito riformato è uno sviluppo dell’antico. È stato ottenuto, certo, sostituendo alcune parti ovviamente non essenziali alla validità della Messa, con altre parti, come per esempio le preghiere dei fedeli o lo scambio del segno di pace. Non è giusto parlare di «omissorio» riguardo il Novus Ordo, perché le parti omesse – per esempio preghiere del sacerdote da solo – si giustificano col fatto che il Novus Ordo non è un Vetus difettoso, ma è semplicemente un altro rito, con una regola diversa da quella del Vetus.
Omissioni illecite commetterebbe il sacerdote che, celebrando nel Vetus, omettesse ciò che in esso è prescritto. Così, per esempio, non diciamo che un’auto a due posti è difettosa perchè ne mancano due, dal momento che essa è stata volutamente costruita così. Similmente, il valore del Novus Ordo non va giudicato in riferimento al Vetus, come se ne fosse una brutta copia, ma va giudicato in riferimento alla regola propria del Novus, diversa ed altrettanto legittima di quella del Vetus.
  1. Che la Messa sia sostanzialmente la stessa di sempre in entrambi casi, cambiando solo forme cerimoniali e le rubriche, va precisata.
Quindi: distinguo. Essa è vera, se Ella intende che la Messa del Novus Ordo è valida, e che realmente vi si rinnova il Sacrificio di Cristo e vi si consacra validamente il Corpo e il Sangue di Nostro Signore. In questo senso, entrambe le forme sono sostanzialmente identiche. Gli elementi essenziali per la validità della Messa sono il ministro ordinato, l’intenzione del ministro, la materia (pane e vino), la formula della Consacrazione.
Se invece Ella sostiene che la Messa tridentina e la Messa riformata siano uguali quanto al loro contenuto – che in certo qual modo ne costituisce anche l’essenza – allora devo respingere la Sua affermazione. Solo una persona inesperta e completamente a digiuno dei rudimenti di teologia e di liturgia può sostenere che la differenza tra i due riti consista solo nelle forme cerimoniali e nelle rubriche. Non è vero infatti che l’unica differenza consista nelle cerimonie, essendo evidentissimo anche ad una semplice lettura cursoria dei due testi che moltissime parti del Vetus Ordo sono state cancellate dal Novus.
  1. – Nella Messa io distinguo una struttura essenziale o sostanziale, che io chiamerei con Lei «contenuto», immutabile; ed un rivestimento accidentale, contingente, variabile e mutevole, dato dalle cerimonie e dalle rubriche. Ritengo che la sostanza o strutturadel rito della Messa debba essere distinta dalla validità della Messa. La sostanza della Messa non può esistere senza i suoi accidenti, perché essi ne sono la manifestazione sensibile. La sostanza della Messa comprende in sé la sua validità; ma per la validità non è necessaria tutta la sostanza con i suoi accidenti, ossia una Messa completa, ma basta la Consacrazione.
Per quanto riguarda la validità, concordo con Lei nel definirne le condizioni. Definisco invece come «completa» la Messa – sostanza e accidenti – che risulta dall’insieme delle sue parti essenziali: 1. L’atto penitenziale; 2. Le letture bibliche; 3. L’offerta delle oblate da consacrare; 4. La consacrazione della Vittima; 5. L’offerta al Padre della Vittima consacrata; 6. La Comunione eucaristica.
Ora io Le domando: se Lei riconosce che la Messa Novus Ordo è valida, come poi viene a dire che il «contenuto, che in certo qual modo ne costituisce anche l’essenza della Messa» non è lo stesso nei due Ordo? Se la Messa Novus Ordo è essenzialmente diversa dalla Vetus, che certo è valida, come può esser valida anche la Novus Ordo? Mi fa piacere che Lei la consideri valida. Però mi domando: se è valida, come fa ad essere essenzialmente diversa dalla Vetus?
  1. Ho espresso il mio sdegno nel vedere che su una questione tanto importante e vitale per le anime si possa pensare di metter insieme vero e falso, fedeltà e tradimento. O anche solo un rito venerando e perfetto com’è quello custodito per millenni dalla Chiesa, con la sua grottesca parodia, la sua diminutio fatta per favorire quel dialogo interreligioso che costituisce l’anima del Vaticano II e che rappresenta la pietra tombale della missione apostolica della Sposa di Cristo. Al punto che lo stesso Bergoglio può affermare che l’apostolato è «una solenne sciocchezza».
  2. – R. – Ella ha appena detto di riconoscere la validità della Messa Novus Ordo. E allora da dove salta fuori la falsità e il tradimento? Quanto alla diminutio, Le ho già sopra  come e perchè la Novus Ordo non va giudicata come diminutiodella Vetus, ma semplicemente come Messa sostanzialmente identica benché accidentalmente diversa. Cioè non va commisurata in rapporto alla Vetus, ma in rapporto alla propria regola intrinseca e costituiva, stabilita dal Concilio.
Non c’è da far questione di più perfetto o meno perfetto, così come, davanti a un giglio o una rosa non ci chiediamo qual è il fiore più perfetto, ma semplicemente apprezziamo il profumo dell’uno e dell’altra. Similmente, apprezziamo i due tipi di Messa olezzanti del profumo dello Spirito Santo, che ha ispirato la Chiesa nell’istituirli e entrambi.
Quanto all’affermazione del Papa, non ha parlato di «apostolato», ma di «proselitismo», che è ben altra cosa, L’apostolato è espressione a livello della predicazione evangelica dell’apostolicità della Chiesa; per «proselitismo» il Papa intende certamente un modo indiscreto e imprudente di diffondere il messaggio evangelico, fatto di indebite pressioni, di mezzi sleali, di espedienti disonesti, tutte cose evidentemente da scartarsi come antiproducenti.
  1. E poi, chi ha mai detto che «Cristo ci vuole uniti, seppur nella diversità»? La diversità nella fede è eresia.
  2. – Parlando di «diversità», non mi riferivo certo ai contenuti della fede – Dio me ne scampi e liberi -, ma a quelle diversità accidentali che si trovano fra il Novus e il Vetus Ordo.
  3. Rimane da comprendere come a un Papa sia concesso di peccare contro tutte le virtù, ad eccezione della fede: mi par di ricordare che il Concilio Vaticano – il primo, ovviamente – avesse definito che l’infallibilità dei Romani Pontefici è garantita dallo Spirito Santo solo quando essi parlano ex cathedra, nel solo ambito di questioni inerenti la fede e i costumi, e con l’intenzione esplicita di impartire un insegnamento vincolante per i fedeli. Poiché se un Papa potesse essere infallibile in materia di fede anche quando è interpellato da un giornalista o fa una delle sue esternazioni a braccio, si aprirebbero questioni molto delicate.
Di eresie ne abbiamo sentite parecchie, dette non solo da Bergoglio, ma anche dai suoi Predecessori: per grazia di Dio, questi errori dottrinali erano da loro espressi come dottori privati, e non imposti a credersi da tutti i fedeli in forza della loro Autorità Apostolica né tantomeno sotto l’assistenza dello Spirito Santo. Tuttavia, reverendo padre, sentir affermare una cosa del genere da un Domenicano mi lascia a dir poco sgomento. Se l’avessi fatto io col mio professore di Dogmatica, mi avrebbe rispedito al Seminario Minore.
R, – Il Papa non può peccare contro la fede, perché gode dell’assistenza che Cristo ha concesso a Pietro: confirma fratres tuos. Il Concilio Vaticano I non dice «solo» ex cathedra, ma semplicemente «ex cathedra», come dire che il Papa, quando ci insegna il Vangelo, non sbaglia e non fa sbagliare, anche se concede un’intervista in aereo  o trasmette un twitter. «Dottore privato» non vuol dire che può dire eresie, ma che si tratta di opinioni personali, sempre, s’intende, nell’ambito dell’ortodossia. Un Papa può esprimere errori storici, scientifici o filosofici, ma non può insegnare eresie. Papa Francesco sembra a volte eretico per l’ambiguità o equivocità o avventatezza o imprudenza  di certe sue espressioni. Ma se ci sforziamo di fare un’interpretazione benevola, ci accorgeremo che non sbaglia e non ci inganna.

          Una lunga vigilia      Cache   Translate Page      
Note storiche, liturgiche e ascetiche sull'Avvento

L'Avvento incipiente si configura come uno dei grandi periodi di ascesi dell'anno nell'ortoprassi cristiana. E' un periodo di meditazione e di raccoglimento, austero. Di origine monastica, l'ascesi dell'Avvento era anticamente caratterizzata dal digiuno, e ancora lo è nella prassi bizantina, mentre in quella occidentale, secondo il card. Lambertini, i fedeli sono stati sollevati dall'obbligo di digiunare in Avvento, pur restando comandato loro compiere un percorso ascetico in questo periodo. Ancorché nettamente meno severo della Quaresima, è nondimeno un periodo di conversione e di penitenza, di esercizio (àskesis) spirituale e fisico, di purificazione per meglio accogliere il Signore che arriva. L’Avvento è una lunga vigilia, una veglia, un periodo di vigilanza che ci prepara per l’arrivo di Cristo, il Re dei Re che inizia il suo regno con la sua umile nascita a Betlemme.
Per meglio comprendere la duplice natura, di attesa e di penitenza, dell'Avvento, sarà d'uopo ripercorrere anzitutto le vicende storiche che portarono alla costituzione di questo tempo, indi le caratteristiche liturgiche di questo periodo e infine riflettere spiritualmente sull'ascesi richiesta da esso.



1. Storia dell'Avvento

Non è noto da quando s'iniziò a osservare un periodo di preparazione per il Natale, che poi assumerà in Occidente il nome di Adventus (la prima attestazione è nei Capitolari di Carlo il Calvo, al sesto capitolo, che sono dell'864). Sappiamo che il Natale iniziò a festeggiarsi nel corso del IV secolo, e siamo certi dell'esistenza della "quaresima di Natale" dal V secolo circa; il Concilio di Tours nel 567 prescrive ai monaci di digiunare ogni giorno more quadragesimali dal primo giorno di dicembre fino al Natale. Ancorché alcuni commentatori lo facciano rimontare agli Apostoli, la cosa pare sospetta, sicché realmente non sappiamo con precisione quale sia stata l'origine storica dell'Avvento.
San Gregorio di Tours (in Historia Francorum) ci riferisce che attorno al 480 il vescovo Perpetuo decretò che dal giorno di S. Martino (11 novembre) sino a Natale i fedeli digiunassero tre volte alla settimana, anziché due come avveniva consuetamente. Ma non è dato sapere se si trattasse dell'istituzione di una nuova pratica, o piuttosto del richiamo all'osservanza di un costume già introdotto da tempo. Secondo alcuni storici, fino alla metà del VI secolo non si ritrovano testimonianze di un digiuno natalizio al di fuori della diocesi di Tours.
Troviamo quindi il nono canone del I Concilio di Mâcon, tenutosi nel 583 e valevole per quasi tutta la Francia, il quale ordina che, durante i 43 giorni che separano la festa di S. Martino dal Natale, si digiuni il lunedì, il mercoledì, il venerdì, e sacrificium celebrabitur ritu quadragesimali. Rabano Mauro pure attesta l'esistenza di questa Quaresima di S. Martino, e molti iniziarono a seguire pratiche più rigorose di quelle prescritte a Macon, digiunando ogni giorno come era stato richiesto ai monaci. E' interessante però notare che nei testi di ambito romano, come nelle omelie di S. Gregorio il Grande, pur trovandosi riferimenti all'Avvento liturgico, non si menziona mai il digiuno. La diffusione in tutto l'Occidente di questa prassi pare nondimeno essere avvenuta nei secoli successivi (S. Beda il Venerabile la menziona per le isole britanniche; un diploma di Astolfo [metà del VIII secolo] per la penisola italica; tale digiuno è inoltre menzionato tra quelli osservati da tutta la Chiesa nella lettera che Papa S. Nicola I rivolge ai convertiti Bulgari).

Nel basso Medioevo il costume pare ormai attestato: S. Pier Damiani parla ancora di una quaresima di 40 giorni di digiuno prima della Natività; nondimeno, leggiamo nella bolla di canonizzazione di S. Luigi di Francia che "lo zelo con cui [egli] osservò il digiuno [di Natale] era un costume ormai più non praticato dai Cristiani". Tant'è che in quei secoli il digiuno fu ridotto, avendo il suo nuovo inizio nella festa di S. Andrea (30 novembre), come già proponevano autori come Raterio di Verona e Abbondio di Fleury. Pare comunque che questo digiuno fosse realmente limitato alla sola astinenza: così il Concilio di Selingstadt (1122), che lo prescrive pei soli chierici, e il Concilio di Salisbury (1281), che lo limita addirittura ai monaci. Tuttavia, Innocenzo III attesta che a Roma questo digiuno si praticasse per intero da tutti ancora nel Trecento, e un'identica nozione possiamo avere per la Francia, secondo quanto ci riferisce il Rationale divinorum officiorum di Guillaume Durand.

L'affievolirsi della pratica si attesta però in tempi brevi: Papa Urbano V, salito al soglio nel 1362, obbligò i membri della sua corte a osservare l'astinenza in questo periodo -segno che non veniva più osservato, non stabilendo più però alcun obbligo per gli altri chierici, né tanto meno pei laici.
Come detto, l'insegnamento definitivo può essere quello dato dal bolognese card. Prospero Lambertini, poi Papa Benedetto XIV, il quale conferma che, pur essendo digiuno e astinenza imposti solo ai religiosi in questo periodo, nondimeno ogni fedele è tenuto a osservare pratiche di mortificazione e ascesi per degnamente prepararsi alla venuta di Nostro Signore Gesù Cristo.

Sull'origine del digiuno nelle altre tradizioni non occidentali, non è dato sapere granché. I commentatori greci fissano la sua origine nella pratica monastica del VI secolo, ma senza portare testimonianze rilevanti. Nella pratica bizantina il digiuno inizia dopo la festa di S. Filippo (15 novembre), ed è nettamente meno rigido della Quaresima, dacché pur vietandosi ogni giorno carne, uova e latticini, sono spesso permessi olio, vino e pesce, anche per via delle numerose feste importanti che cadono in questo tempo.
Un simile digiuno è attestato pure nella Chiesa Armena (principiante il 19 novembre) e in quella Copta, in cui però si osserva un altro piccolo digiuno tre giorni prima dell'inizio di quello d'Avvento, per commemorare il miracolo del movimento del monte Mukattam per opera di S. Simone il Conciatore, occorso nel 975.

2. Storia liturgica dell'Avvento

Dai Sacramentari Gregoriani, pare che anticamente in Roma l'Avvento, inteso stavolta come collazione di uffici propri preparatori alla festa del Natale, abbracciasse cinque domeniche (una simile indicazione è riportata pure nei sacramentari gelasiani, del VII secolo, mentre in quelli leoniani, del VI secolo, non se ne ha traccia; presto iniziano a comparire pure le ufficiature dei giorni delle Tempora d'Avvento). Già nel X secolo la quasi totalità dei commentatori (tra gli altri, Amalario di Metz, S. Nicola I Papa, Bernone di Reichenau e Reterio di Verona) attesta che gli uffici liturgici dell'Avvento si celebrano per sole quattro domeniche.

La Chiesa ambrosiana conta ancor oggi sei settimane nella sua liturgia dell'Avvento; il Messale gotico o mozarabico mantiene la stessa usanza. Per la Chiesa gallicana, i frammenti che Dom Mabillon ci ha conservati della sua liturgia non ci attestano nulla a questo riguardo; ma è naturale pensare con questo studioso la cui autorità è rafforzata anche da quella di Dom Martène, che la Chiesa delle Gallie seguisse su questo punto, come su tanti altri, le usanze della Chiesa gotica. L'Avvento di quattro settimane, sul modello romano, pare nondimeno attestato in molti luoghi: nel Patriarcato di Aquileja la durata per esempio era tale, ma si aggiungevano degli uffici propri per tutti i mercoledì e venerdì d'Avvento, e non solo quelli delle Tempora. 

I testi romani per l'Avvento sono squisitamente poetici e ricchi di riferimenti all'Antico Testamento, particolarmente nelle ufficiature delle ore canoniche, con le loro dolci antifone; benché si celebrino numerosi uffici di Santi, che mantengono le loro proprie gioiose caratteristiche, la liturgia domenicale è resa austera dall'assenza del Gloria. Sull'addobbo delle chiese, gli autori non sono concordi: taluni propongono di seguire le indicazioni (chiare) per la Quaresima, altri chiamano in causa il carattere mite della penitenza dell'Avvento per permettere il suono dell'organo e i reliquiari sull'altare. Il Gavanto sostiene che in Avvento bisognerebbe comunque dimostrare una certa morigeratezza, evitando di decorare gli altari con fiori e reliquiari molto preziosi.
A partire dal XIII secolo circa, il colore liturgico dell'Avvento in Occidente è divenuto il viola; interessante è notare che Papa Innocenzo III ritenesse il nero il colore adatto alla celebrazione di questo tempo (colore sconosciuto alla prassi romana antica, tant'è che non è impiegato nemmeno per le ferie quaresimali laddove moltissimi riti occidentali lo preferiscono). Storicamente dunque pare esser stata preferita la tesi di Durando di Saint-Pourçain, che lamentava la scelta del Pontefice esponendogli le ragioni del viola. Alla terza domenica d'Avvento, la Gaudete, fu poi assegnato il color rosaceo per analogia colla quarta domenica di Quaresima. Alcuni usi locali, come quello di Sarum in Inghilterra o quello mozarabico, fin dall'VIII secolo propendevano per paramenti colorati con una sorta di blu, detto poi blu di Sarum. Anche altre tradizioni locali prediligevano per l'Avvento un viola tendente al blu, mentre per la Quaresima se ne impiegava uno tendente al rosso; in epoca tridentina fu precisato che però il viola prescritto dalle rubriche è uno solo, ed eventuali distinzioni d'intensità non hanno relazione colle norme liturgiche.

La liturgia bizantina non presenta di per sé un insieme di officiature proprie del tempo d'Avvento; alcuni monasteri in Russia presero l'usanza di celebrare in questo periodo le liturgie dei presantificati, come in Quaresima, e celebrare le ore canoniche secondo il rito quaresimale; questa nonpertanto era pratica sconosciuta alla Chiesa Greca e ai suoi libri liturgici: in essi gli unici elementi che richiamano la preparazione alla Natività sono alcune antifone proprie riferite al Natale che si cantano nelle feste e nelle domeniche che cadono dopo il 21 novembre.
Il carattere proprio di questo periodo di avvicinamento al Natale è dato pure dalla disposizione delle feste dei santi: in queste settimane vengono commemorati ad esempio i profeti dell'Antico Testamento che previdero l'Incarnazione, tra i quali Abdia (19 novembre), Naum (1 dicembre), Abacuc (2 dicembre), Sofonia (3 dicembre), Aggeo (16 dicembre), Daniele e i tre giovani (17 dicembre).
La domenica che cade tra l'11 e il 17 dicembre è dedicata ai Patriarchi, da Adamo in poi (Set, Enoch, Noè, Abramo, Giacobbe, Re Davide e molti altri), rammentando così la discendenza di Gesù Cristo. La domenica successiva, quella che cade immediatamente prima di Natale, è, in strettissima relazione colla precedente, dedicata ai Santi Padri, cioè a tutti i giusti, uomini e donne, vissuti dalla Creazione del mondo sino a San Giuseppe. Il vangelo di questa domenica è la Genealogia di Cristo tolta da S. Matteo.
La preparazione prossima al Natale inizia il 20 dicembre, data a partire dalla quale si cantano quotidianamente gl'inni natalizi, e in alcune tradizioni (quella russa ad esempio) s'impiegano già paramenti e addobbi festivi. Questa lunga vigilia culmina con la celebrazione della paramonì (παραμονή), la vigilia vera e propria, il 24 dicembre, con i suoi uffici propri (la Grande Compieta, le Ore Regali...) e il suo strettissimo digiuno.


3. Spunti di ascetica per l'Avvento


Nei tempi moderni, l'ascesi costituisce quasi una sfida, una dura prova a cui è sottoposta la nostra tendenza a una generale rilassatezza e semplificazione che rischia di toccare anche la sfera religiosa. Per poter seguire però con obbedienza i precetti stabiliti dall'ortoprassi, è giovevole conoscere i vantaggi spirituali del digiuno di Natale, il suo scopo e le sue funzioni.

Amma Teodora, una delle Madri del Deserto, diceva che "non è la disciplina spirituale, o la veglia, che ci salvano, se non vi è una genuina umiltà. Infatti, vi era un monaco che cacciava i demoni e soleva dir loro:
'Cosa ti ha fatto uscire? E' stato il digiuno?' ed essi rispondevano: 'Noi non mangiamo né beviamo'
Gli diceva: 'La veglia?' ed essi: 'Noi non dormiamo'.
'Il ritiro dal mondo', ed essi rispondevano: 'Noi esistiamo pure nel deserto'.
'Cosa vi ha fatto uscire allora', ed essi risposero: 'Nulla ci discaccia fuorché l'umiltà'.
Vedi dunque che l'umiltà è vittoriosa sui demoni?"

La vittoria spirituale sui demoni non è certo cosa che accade solo nel deserto o nei monasteri, ma avviene quotidianamente negli umili di cuore. Come i demoni stessi sono stati costretti ad ammettere, loro non mangiano, non dormono, non vivono in città lussuriose e amene (e infatti, forse con sorpresa di taluni, il luogo dove più spesso si manifestano è il deserto, come c'insegnano del resto le vite dei Padri). Non è dunque la pratica in sé che vince i demoni, ma l'umiltà che si conquista attraverso questa pratica ascetica.

Se l'ascesi fosse solo obbedire ciecamente a dei precetti, che vantaggio spirituale ci sarebbe? Anche i demoni lo fanno! Ma la vera lotta spirituale, praticata dai santi monaci ma doverosa per tutti i Cristiani, e di suscitare, conservare e sviluppare, attraverso l'ascesi, l'umiltà, un cuore umile. Difatti i demoni non hanno umiltà, e non possono nemmeno abitare in un cuore umile, perché nei cuori umili Iddio si compiace! E infatti dice l'Altissimo, "che abita l'eternità, il cui nome è Santo: Io abito in un luogo alto e santo, e con colui che è di spirito contrito e umile, per ravvivare lo spirito degli umili e per rianimare il cuore del contrito" (Isaia 57,15).

Il digiuno di Natale non è semplicemente obbedire a una serie di regole alimentari (che infatti, in Occidente sono state tolte per i semplici laici, lasciando a ciascuno l'obbligo però di individuare col proprio padre spirituale una via ascetica per santificare questo tempo), sibbene il suo scopo è preparare un cuore umile in cui Nostro Signore Gesù Cristo nascente possa trovare un luogo ove abitare. L'umiltà purifica il nostro cuore, attraverso l'ascesi, il digiuno e il sacramento della penitenza.

"Ogni confessione genuina rende umile l'anima. Quando prende la forma di ringraziamento, insegna all'anima che è stata guidata dalla grazia di Dio. Quando prende la forma di accusa dei propri peccati, insegna all'anima che la colpa delle cattive azioni è della propria deliberata indolenza.
La confessione ha infatti due forme. La prima è ringraziare per le benedizioni ricevute; la seconda è mettere luce ed esaminare gli errori che abbiamo commesso. S'impiega il termine "confessione" sia per il ringraziamento per le benedizioni che abbiamo ricevuto per grazia divina, sia per l'ammissione dei peccati che abbiamo commessi per nostra colpa. Entrambe le forme sono infatti sorgenti di umiltà. Chi infatti ringrazia Dio per le grazie ricevute, e chi esamina se stesso per le offese compiute, sono entrambi umiliati. Il primo giudica se stesso indegno di quanto gli è stato donato; il secondo implora perdono pei propri peccati." (S. Massimo il Confessore, Filocalia)

Over the past two years, each of the members of THE WINERY DOGS have toured extensively with other acts — Kotzen with his long-running solo band; Sheehan with SONS OF APOLLO and MR. BIG; and Portnoy with SONS OF APOLLO, THE NEAL MORSE BAND and SHATTERED FORTRESS. THE WINERY DOGS were founded in 2012 after Portnoy and Sheehan — who initially aimed to collaborate with former WHITESNAKE and BLUE MURDER guitarist John Sykes — reached out to Kotzen, who played with Sheehan in MR. BIG from 1997 to 2002. The group's 2013 self-titled debut reached No. 27 on the Billboard 200 after selling more than 10,000 copies in the U.S. during its first week of availability. The initial sales of "Hot Streak" were even better, as the album debuted at No. 30 in late 2015 after shifting 13,000 equivalent album units in America during its first week of availability. Despite the band's success, Kotzen expressed a desire to return to his solo career after the end of the "Hot Streak" touring cycle. "I wanted to go back to what I was doing my whole life, which is making my music and my records," he said during an appearance on the satellite radio program "Trunk Nation" earlier this year. He reiterated that sentiment during a subsequent interview with Sofa King Cool. "I thought in my mind, 'Well, this worked. It was fun. It was really cool. But I kind of want to go back to being Richie for a while and doing what I was doing before,'" he said. For their parts, Sheehan and Portnoy both publicly voiced hope that THE WINERY DOGS' hiatus would be short-lived. In an interview with "The Unchained Rock Show" this summer, Sheehan called THE WINERY DOGS his "favorite band." "I love THE WINERY DOGS," he said. "Richie wanted to do some [other] things, and we wanted to give it a break for a while so it didn't get stale, and it would be new to us all the time. We will do more WINERY DOGS for sure." Portnoy, meanwhile, told Mitch Lafon this spring that "it's just a matter of when" until the group would reconvene. "I know all three of us love that band and we love working together, so it's a matter of Richie kind of just getting his rocks off on his own," he said. "He's just enjoying doing his own thing. He's always been a little… um… I don't wanna say 'scared'… I'll say, like, 'hesitant' to commit to a full-time band for the rest of his life. He spent so much of his life and career as a solo artist, and then once he got swept up in THE WINERY DOGS for two back-to-back cycles, which lasted maybe four or five years, I think it maybe overwhelmed him a bit and he just needed to step away and breathe and not have to be so committed to something. He likes to kind of just float on his own terms and his own schedule and do his own thing, which I can totally respect. So, at this point, when he's ready, I know Billy and I would love to do some more."

All pre-orders are joined by instant grat downloads of the recently released album tracks "Do Your Worst" and "Back In The Woods". Rolling Stone hailed "Do Your Worst" as "a relentless rocker with a gritty verse spearheaded by a sinister lead guitar riff and thumping drums. The track takes a deft turn when it hits the chorus, forgoing out-and-out guitar bombast for rousing gang vocals with singer Jay Buchanan leading the charge." "Do Your Worst" is joined by an official music video that shows rival sons at their onstage best, alongside behind-the-scenes footage and a performance filmed at the aforementioned Studio A. "Back In The Woods" made its debut by way of Consequence Of Sound, which declared it to be "a rootsy rock track, with (RIVAL SONS) not only taking us 'Back In The Woods' but also back in time to big classic rock sounds of the '60s and '70s." The primal intensity of "Feral Roots" reflects a certain unrest at the heart of the album, sparked by Buchanan's recent move to Tennessee. "With all the stimuli we're constantly receiving these days, I think a lot of people have a desire to live with more freedom and simplicity," noted Buchanan. "There's a longing for your truer nature to prevail, and to reclaim some sort of wildness." But with its nuanced explorations of art and love and truth, "Feral Roots" ultimately argues for pushing beyond pure survival instincts and striving for something more exalted: an unbreakable commitment to creating beauty of your own. RIVAL SONS are also set for a special headline performance at 98.9 The Bear's Electric Christmas, on December 15 at Fort Wayne, Indiana's Pierre's Entertainment Center. RIVAL SONS are: Jay Buchanan (vocals), Scott Holiday (guitar), Dave Beste (bass guitar) and Mike Miley (drums).

          From the Field to the Ring: 5 Pro Wrestlers with Professional Sports Backgrounds      Cache   Translate Page      
Athletes switching to other sports are not a rarity today. We've seen boxers and martial artists try their worth in MMA, MMA stars step into the boxing ring, we've even seen an NBA star switch from the basketball to a much smaller one (a golf ball) a few years ago.

And there are many pro wrestlers, too, who were active in other sports before becoming stars - or antiheroes - in the ring.

Brock Lesnar is a 2-sport athlete and the current universal champion. New England Patriots player Rob Gronkowski momentarily stepped in the squared circle at WrestleMania 33 to help Mojo Rawley win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. Anything can happen.

Let's take a look at a few of wrestling's biggest stars and how they got their start in sports before they went into sports entertainment.

Lawrence Taylor was only in WWF for a brief stint, but managed to main event WrestleMania 11 nevertheless

Kevin Nash


Kevin Nash, along with Scott Hall and "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan were the original founding members of the "nWo" back in the mid to late 1990s. Their New World Order was more important than many would think - it was instrumental in turning the World Championship Wrestling into a more adult-oriented product - what better sign to this than the fact that the nWo was imitated, mocked, parodied, loved, and hated until its dissolution in 2000.

Few people know that Kevin Nash was a professional basketball player before turning to pro wrestling. Of course, this makes sense, given his height of 6'11 (211 cm), so he was certainly fit for this sport.

While Nash attended the University of Tennessee, he was a center for the Tennessee Volunteers from 1977 until 1980. His career highlight was making it to the NCAA Sweet 16, but he would eventually run into a series of incidents, namely slapping his head coach Don DeVoe.


Nash then headed over to Germany to play for a variety of teams before his career ended in 1981 after he suffered an injury when he tore his anterior cruciate ligament.

Ron Simmons


If you've forgotten about Ron Simmons' work as the blue-armored gladiator Faarooq Asad, we don't blame you, as it was stupid. But that was a rare instance of Simmons doing something forgettable.

Simmons started his athletic career by playing tight end and linebacker for Warner Robins High School. He went on to be named lineman of the year and first team All-State by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 1976.

Simmons kept this success going while attending Florida State, where he was also called one of the "greatest recruiting victories" due to his talent and would play from 1977 until 1980 as a defensive nose guard. While there, the team was in the Associated Press Top 20 three times and went to the Orange Bowl twice.

He was ninth in the Heisman voting in 1979 and his jersey (#50) was retired in 1988, which was only the third time in the school's history for a number to be retired. Of course, he would eventually be inducted into the Orange Bowl Hall of Fame as well as the College Football Hall of Fame (and eventually, the WWE Hall of Fame as well).

Simmons was drafted in the sixth round of the 1981 NFL Draft and played for the Cleveland Browns in 1981 and 1982, the Ottawa Rough Riders in 1981 and finished his football career with the USFL Tampa Bay Bandits from 1983-1985.

After transitioning to professional wrestling, Simmons would become

During his wrestling career, he would become the second-ever African American world champion, winning the WCW World Heavyweight Championship from Vader in 1992, which would arguably be his biggest accomplishment, even though he would manage to win three more titles in WCW and three more in WWE. Damn!


Dwayne Johnson


Today, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is best known for his movie roles but not long ago, he was a major star in the ring. Before his rise to stardom as a pro fighter, The Rock was a pretty good footballer, playing defensive tackle for the University of Miami.

With the Miami Hurricanes, he won a national championship in 1991, but he was overlooked in the NFL draft due to some injury-related issues. Oddly enough, his replacement was Warren Sapp, who would go on to become an NFL Hall of Famer.

After a short while at the Calgary Stampeders in the Canadian Football League in 1995, he abandoned his dreams of being a football star and turned to professional wrestling, where he would make his grand debut at Survivor Series 1997. The rest, as we know, is history.


Bill Goldberg


Before becoming the nigh unstoppable world champion of WCW (and eventually, two-time world champion in WWE, most recently with his Universal Championship reign that started at Fastlane 2017 and ended at WrestleMania 33), Bill Goldberg was in the NFL.

He was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the 11th round (302nd overall selection in the 1990 NFL draft) and played in that season, before moving on to the CFL Sacramento Surge (and then the Sacramento Gold Miners when they changed their name) and Atlanta Falcons from 1992 to 1994.

He was then cut by the Falcons, but in 1995, the Carolina Panthers picked him up, even though he never played for them and was cut once again.


Lex Luger


Last but not least, let's return to the glorious past with another loved/hated character of the World Wrestling Federation: Lex Luger, born Lawrence Wendell Pfohl.

The two-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, one-time WWA World Heavyweight Champion, and five-time NWA/WCW United States Heavyweight Champion started his pro sports career as a football player with the Miami Hurricanes, playing with legendary players like Jim Kelly, Jim Burt, Mitch Guittar, Fred Marion and Mark Richt.

He was booted from the team, though, due to an incident involving the trashing of a hotel room during a road trip to Atlanta. After this unfortunate event, he continued to play football for various teams before giving up on football and switching to wrestling.

He retired from active duty in 2006, returning to the WWE a year later on its Wellness Policy, counseling athletes on nutrition, wellness, and exercise behind the scenes.

Are there any athletes outside the wrestling industry that you'd like to see make the jump to WWE in the future? Should WWE be looking more into UFC fighters, football players, basketball stars or anything else in particular?

          Bartolomé Fanti de Mantua, Beato      Cache   Translate Page      
No sabemos gran cosa sobre la vida de Bartolomé Fanti.

Fue uno de los carmelitas extraordinariamente santos que vivieron en Mantua, en el siglo XV. Nació en 1443.

A los diecisiete años, ingresó en la orden del Carmelo. Después de su ordenación se distinguió como predicador.

Era extraordinariamente devoto del Santísimo Sacramento.

Con el aceite de la lámpara del Santísimo, curó milagrosamente a varias personas. Instituyó en Mántua una cofradía de laicos de Nuestra Señora del Monte Carmelo, para la que él mismo escribió los estatutos y prescribió los ejercicios de devoción.

Se cuenta que el Beato Bartolomé fue maestro de novicios del poeta carmelita, Beato Bautista Spagnolo, quien, calificó a nuestro beato como "santísimo guía y maestro espiritual".

El Beato Bartolomé murió el 5 de diciembre de 1495. Su culto fue confirmado en 1909.

Mártires en Japón

Martirologio Romano: En el lugar llamado Edo, de Japón, beatos mártires Francisco Gálvez, presbítero de la Orden de Hermanos Menores, Jerónimo de Angelis, presbítero, y Simón Yempo, religioso, estos dos últimos de la Compañía de Jesús, todos los cuales fueron quemados por odio a la fe († c. 1622/1623).

Breve Semblanza


Llegada del cristianismo a Japón

Los primeros cristianos japoneses recibieron el bautismo en 1548, en Goa, de manos del obispo Juan de Albuquerque. Ellos fueron los que guiaron los pasos de san Francisco Javier por el archipiélago nipón. Pero los jesuitas fueron pronto expulsados del país.

En 1593 desembarcaban en Japón los franciscanos descalzos Pedro Bautista Blázquez, Bartolomé Ruiz, Francisco de San Miguel y Gonzalo García, que no tardaron en recibir refuerzos desde Filipinas. En sólo tres años lograron bautizar a unos 20.000 neófitos, pero en 1596 estalló la persecución. Pedro Bautista y cinco compañeros suyos, tres jesuitas nativos y 17 cristianos seglares murieron crucificados en Nagasaki.

En tres años llegaron a bautizar a unos 20.000 neófitos. En 1596 estalló la persecución contra los cristianos, y el 5 de febrero del año siguiente morían crucificados en Nagasaki san Pedro Bautista , cinco compañeros suyos, tres jesuitas nativos y 17 cristianos seglares. Su martirio supuso nuevas conversiones y mayor expansión misionera, y fue en una de las nuevas oleadas de misioneros cuando llegó al país el beato Francisco Gálvez.


FRAY FRANCISCO GÁLVEZ DE URIEL

Este franciscano, sacerdote y misionero, nació de Francisco Gálvez y de Juana Iranzo, familia hidalga y bien situada de Utiel (Valencia), , unos días antes del 15 de agosto, fecha de su bautismo.

Se inició en las letras en la escuela de la parroquia, pero pasó enseguida al Colegio Seminario del Salvador, inaugurado el 6 de agosto de 1585, cuando Francisco estaba a punto de cumplir los siete años. En palabras del fundador, el sacerdote local Don Gonzalo Muñoz Iranzo, la finalidad del colegio era "que aquí los niños y niñas, desde chiquitos, aprendan la Doctrina cristiana, y los mayores y estudiantes aprendan los principios de Gramática y Latinidad, para que aquí salgan buenos ministros para la Iglesia y vayan a otras Universidades para aprender otras ciencias y facultades y a Religiones y Monasterios para mejor servir a Dios, que éste es el celo del Salvador del mundo, a quien se debe todo y a quien se le dé la honra y gloria por siempre jamás, amén".

Hacia los 14 años, ell joven Francisco saldrá de aquí bien preparado para empezar su formación universitaria en el Estudio General de Valencia. En su certificado de estudios del 10 de abril de 1598 consta que era ya subdiácono, que cursó Artes, Lógica y Filosofía, bajo el magisterio del catedrático José Roque Rocafull, doctor en Artes liberales, y, y que luego completó los cuatro años de Teología. Cumplidos todos los requisitos, recibió enseguida el diaconado, seguramente de manos del santo arzobispo de Valencia Juan de Ribera, quien lo destinó a una de las parroquias de la ciudad.

Muy fuerte debió de sentir la llamada a la vida religiosa, pues, sin esperar a la ordenación sacerdotal, solicitó ser admitido en el convento valenciano de San Juan de la Ribera, de los franciscanos descalzos o alcantarinos. Esta rama de la observancia, una de las de mayor austeridad, se caracterizaba por una vida de pobreza, austeridad, mortificación y compromiso evangelizador y con los pobres. Descalzos eran también, aparte de san Pedro de Alcántara, san Pascual Báilón y el beato Andrés Hibernón, contemporáneos suyos.

A Oriente por la ruta occidental

El beato Francisco Gálvez profesó la regla franciscana el 6 de mayo de 1600 y se ordenó sacerdote a finales del mismo año, o a comienzos de 1601. Poco después, el 28 de junio, a petición propia, partía como misionero hacia al Extremo Oriente desde el puerto de Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Lo sabemos porque el 1 de marzo de 1601, el rey Felipe II, por real cédula que se conserva en el sevillano Archivo de Indias, autorizaba a fray Juan Pobre, procurador de la Provincia franciscana de Filipinas, viajar a dichas islas con 40 misioneros, a expensas reales.

El viaje se hacía entonces por la ruta occidental. Tras dos meses de travesía, la misión dirigida por Juan Pobre desembarcaba en San Juan de Ulúa, el puerto de Veracruz, en Méjico. De aquí se dirigieron a pie hasta la capital azteca. Ocho años permaneció el beato Francisco en tierras mejicanas, sin que podamos precisar dónde residió ni en qué se ocupó todo ese tiempo. Lo que si sabemos es que sólo en 1609 pudo embarcarse en Acapulco, donde la congregación tenía una hospedería para los frailes de paso, rumbo a Manila. Tanto el archipiélago filipino como el japonés formaban parte de la floreciente provincia franciscana de San Gregorio Magno, cuyo primer procurador había sido san Pedro Bautista, uno de los protomártires de Japón recientemente crucificados en Nagasaki. A raíz del martirio la Provincia había experimentado un fuerte crecimiento, pasando de 41 conventos, 125 religiosos y 60.892 cristianos a finales del siglo XVI, a 57 conventos y 114.000 cristianos en 1622.

El beato Francisco Gálvez fue destinado al convento filipino de Dilao, un barrio del extrarradio de Manila, donde había una colonia de japoneses cristianos. Trabajando pastoralmente con ellos fue como fray Francisco pudo aprender la lengua nipona. Hizo tantos progresos que sus superiores lo nombraron ministro de los japoneses de Balete, jurisdicción de Dilao.

Evangelizador en Japón

En 1612, bien preparado por el contacto diario con los nipones, el beato Francisco hizo su primer viaje a Japón. Durante dos años pudo desarrollar una breve pero intensa labor misionera: anuncio del Evangelio en japonés con soltura, traducción de libros religiosos (Vidas de Santos, un Catecismo, varios opúsculos devocionales) que facilitaron su tarea, y atención a los leprosos de Asakusa hasta contagiarse con la enfermedad.

El 27 de octubre de 1614, por decreto imperial, el beato Galvez y los demás misioneros tuvieron que abandonar el territorio y regresar a Manila, pues Japón no se abrió a los europeos hasta el siglo XIX, y las persecuciones contra los cristianos no terminaron hasta el año 1873. Pero fray Francisco se las ingenió para regresar, porque allá había dejado a un pequeño grupo de cristianos que él mismo bautizó, y necesitaban de su presencia, apoyo, consejos y consuelos. En 1616, con la armada del Gobernador de Filipinas, llegó hasta Singapur, desde donde pudo llegar a Malaca, colonia portuguesa donde los franciscanos, seis años antes, habían obtenido del rey de Camboya permiso para evangelizar en su territorio. Sólo encontró una galeota que viajaba a Japón, pero no admitía pasajeros, y menos misioneros, pues aún estaba reciente el decreto de expulsión. Entonces recurrió a una estratagema: se tiznó de negro y se contrató como galeón o remero, a cambio de una pequeña ración diaria de arroz. Pero todo lo soportó con paciencia, incluso el año y medio que tuvo que esperar en Macao, antes de tocar suelo japonés.

Cumplido su propósito, aún pudo moverse con cierta libertad, gracias a la tolerancia de las autoridades locales. Incluso ejerció de mediador diplomático, entregando al príncipe de Voxu, Masamuné, por encargo del beato Luis de Sotelo, martirizado poco después en Omura, unas cartas y presentes que traía de parte del rey de España y del Papa. Fray Francisco fue bien recibido y agasajado, con orden de atenderle en todo lo necesario, y con la asignación de un lugar tranquilo donde poder dedicarse sin molestias a la evangelización. Gracias a este especial privilegio del príncipe Masamuné, el Beato Gálvez pudo desarrollar una intensa y fructuosa actividad misionera en los territorios de Voxy y Mongami, multiplicando las conversiones.

Martirizado en Yedo (Tokio)

Aún no se habían agotado las anteriores órdenes de expulsión, cuando, en agosto de 1623, el Emperador nombró nuevo "shogum" o jefe de gobierno a Iemitsu. Y éste, al ver que no se cumplían con demasiado rigor, ordenó eliminar a los cristianos, prometiendo honores y dinero a quiénes los denunciaran. Enseguida alguien (un cristiano renegado, o un bonzo que se hizo pasar por tal) delató ante el gobernador a los cristianos y misioneros de Yedo, la actual Tokio, entre ellos al jesuita siciliano Jerónimo de los Ángeles. Fray Francisco Gálvez fue apresado en Kamakura, antes de poder huir con el japonés converso Hilario Mongazaimón, síndico de la orden franciscana. Con él apresaron también a fray Juan Cambo, que había sido portero en el antiguo convento de Nagasaki, a fray Padre Doxico, a Hilario y a su esposa Marina, con confiscación de todos sus bienes.

Los llevaron a Yedo, y fueron presentados ante el Consejo del Emperador. Acusado de engañar a los conversos japoneses arriesgando sus vidas, el beato Francisco respondió en voz alta y en elegante japonés: "Yo no he engañado a nadie, ni predico falsa doctrina, ni he sido causa de muerte; antes bien, por amor de Jesucristo, verdadero Dios y verdadero Salvador del mundo, y por amor de sus escogidos los cristianos, les he predicado la verdad y verdadera salvación, sin la cual nadie se puede salvar, ni vuestras mercedes se salvarán, si no creen lo que yo predico. No he sido causa de la muerte de los cristianos, sino vuestras Mercedes lo son, que se la dan injustamente".

No le dejaron seguir hablando. En prisión se encontró con fray Jerónimo de los Ángeles, apresado pocos días antes que él. Se alegraron de verse, se confesaron mutuamente, se prepararon para morir y animaron a los demás cristianos detenidos con ellos. Cuando llegó Iemitsu a Yedo, condenó a muerte a los 51 detenidos, ordenando que los pasearan por las calles de la Corte antes de ser quedamos vivos en la hoguera. En el cortejo iban tres grupos: el primero estaba encabezado por el P. Jerónimo de los Ángeles, a caballo, y el hermano laico Simón Yempo y 17 condenados más a pie. El segundo lo presidía fray Francisco Gálvez a caballo, con otros 16 condenados tras él. A la cabeza del tercer grupo iba Faramondo, caballero pariente y primo del Emperador, noble y rico, que se bautizó en Osaka en 1600 y había sido torturado en una anterior persecución.

El martirio se consumó el 4 de diciembre de 1623: dos jesuitas, el beato Francisco Gálvez y 47 "cordígeros" o franciscanos seglares, fueron quedamos vivos en una gran plaza de las afueras de Yedo, a la vista de muchos nobles y señores que habían sido invitados a los festejos de la investidura del shogun, y de un gran gentío, también cristianos, que acudieron de todas partes. Aunque pusieron guardia para los cristianos no retiraran sus restos y cenizas, pero éstos supieron esperar hasta la cuarta noche, cuando ya nadie vigilaba.

En poco tiempo, los cristianos de Japón quedaron sin sacerdotes y reducidos al silencio y la clandestinidad, hasta que fueron descubiertos de nuevo en 1865, año en que se volvió a permitir la entrada de misioneros católicos en el país.

JERÓNIMO DE ANGELIS

Jerónimo de Angelis había nacido en Enna (Sicilia) en 1567, y en su juventud se decidió por estudiar leyes con las miras puestas en ejercer de abogado. Pero accedió a hacer una tanda de ejercicios espirituales y en ellos descubre que su verdadera vocación es la vida religiosa, y opta por la Compañía de Jesús en la que ingresa en 1585. Se ofrece para las misiones y no estaba aún ordenado de sacerdote cuando es destinado al Japón. Parte para allí en compañía del Beato Carlos Spínola, pero su viaje duraría seis años por ser muy accidentado. Parten de Lisboa, llegan a Brasil y luego a Puerto Rico, donde unos piratas ingleses los obligan a ir a Londres y de aquí vuelven a Lisboa, de donde reemprenden el viaje, llegando por fin a Japón en 1602. Una vez ordenado sacerdote, trabaja en Suxini, funda la cristiandad de Sarunga y llega la orden de salida del Japón en 1614, pero él se queda secretamente en Nagasaki. Recorre varias regiones en las que no estaba establecida aún ninguna comunidad cristiana y logra crear varias. Visita el acantonamiento de Zugaru, donde estaban recluidos muchos confesores de la fe, condenados a una vida de fatigas y privados de los sacramentos. Evangeliza también en la isla de Yeso. En 1622 se le nombra superior de la misión de Yeddo, donde se establece. Se dice que había logrado convertir unas diez mil personas. Puso empeño en convertir personas escogidas e influyentes pensando que así el evangelio se expandiría con mayor fuerza. Su detención se debió a que oyó decir que León Takeya, su hospedador, sería puesto en libertad si el padre De Angelis se entregaba. Lo meditó y se entregó. En el interrogatorio se negó a decir quién lo hospedaba. Llevado a la cárcel encontró en ella cincuenta cristianos, entre ellos su compañero de martirio Simón Yempo, y también el P. Francisco Gálvez. A finales de noviembre fue condenado a muerte.

Nota: La imagen que grafica este artículo corresponde al beato Jerónimo de Angelis.

SIMÓN YEMPO

Simón Yempo había nacido en Notzu, en el reino de Findo (Japón) en 1580. Inclinado a la vida interior ingresó en su juventud en un monasterio budista. Pero su superior se hizo cristiano y él se interesó entonces por el cristianismo y se convirtió también. En 1598 entró en una escuela de catequistas que tenían los jesuitas y, obtenida esta condición, fue catequista a lo largo de veinticinco años con mucho celo, trabajando sin cansancio y viviendo con mucha austeridad. Fue admitido como hermano en la Compañía de Jesús. Acompañó mucho tiempo al P. Jerónimo de Angelis en sus correrías apostólicas. Encarcelado cuando él, trabajó en la cárcel por la conversión de otros presos, y fue condenado a muerte por su condición de cristiano y propagandista de la religión.


El 7 de julio de 1867, Pío XI los beatificaba con los otros 201 mártires ejecutados en Japón entre los años 1617 y 1632.

          Why some Camp Fire victims don't ask for help, and what parishes are doing      Cache   Translate Page      

Sacramento, Calif., Dec 5, 2018 / 02:43 pm (CNA).- Though a series of devastating wildfires in California is nearly contained, Catholics engaged in relief efforts are warning that the recovery process will be long, and will disproportionately affect undocumented immigrants and the poor, who may not be able to avail themselves of government-provided services.  

Nearly 90 have died in the Northern California fire known as the Camp Fire, though the number of people still missing has dropped from thousands to a list of just 11. The fire began Nov. 8 and as of Dec. 3, the blaze was entirely contained, after having consumed 150,000 acres of land and 18,000 structures.

John Watkins, director of Catholic Charities for the Diocese of Sacramento, told CNA that several local aid organizations have been coordinating efforts to help survivors, setting up booths and holding events at the Disaster Resource Center (DRC) in Chico, CA.

Participating groups include local St. Vincent de Paul chapters, Catholic Charities USA, Catholic Charities of California and Northern Valley Catholic Social Service (NVCSS). The Red Cross, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the local Mexican Consulate are also involved.

“NVCSS will primarily be involved in the second phase of the disaster recovery with Crisis Counseling and Disaster Case Management,” Watkins told CNA in an email.  

“They will likely be hiring dozens of disaster case managers to respond to the Camp Fire. This may not happen for another 4-6 months. The [disaster case management] program will accompany the families for 24 months until they are stabilized.”

In the meantime, Watkins said, the agency is seeking to hire a coordinator to serve families who will not qualify for federal assistance, many of whom are undocumented. He said the NVCSS immigration table at the relief center has helped at least 50 people who lost their immigration documentation in the fire.

The diocese is also providing free school tuition to about 20 students displaced by the fire.

Father Michael Ritter, pastor at St. John the Baptist parish in Chico, told CNA that over 160 members of his parish have been volunteering at the disaster center in Chico through the leadership of St. Vincent de Paul.

“They're doing intake and assessment, they're doing gift cards, we've been giving out some donated goods that we've received, and hygiene kits and whatnot...as of a couple of days ago we had done intake for more than 2,000 families,” Ritter told CNA.  

Ritter said the parish has its own drop-in center, open Friday evenings and Sundays, to help bring a variety of services to people in need. The need for housing, gift cards for groceries, and gasoline is still particularly acute, but prayer for the victims of the fire is also greatly needed, he said.

Ritter said for many undocumented members of the community in need, and even for legal immigrants who may have lost their documentation in the fire, there is a discomfort with approaching FEMA— a federal agency— at the DRC.

“Our hope is that the parish provides a place of greater confidence or trust, where people who maybe wouldn't be able to approach a federal agency for support can get the same kinds of service,” he said.

Ritter said although the parish events and resources are meant to provide help for anyone, and are not being particularly marketed to the undocumented, it is clear that “the parish provides a safer place for people who would have concerns going directly to FEMA, or for people who FEMA wouldn't be able to help.”

“What the Church does offer is help for anyone who needs help, and whether one's documented or not is not a question,” he said.  

“Our strength, particularly as a parish, is the human element in terms of meeting people and empathy, and our effort to be present...It really is incredible to be a witness to some of the great solidarity that we're seeing. This has definitely changed the culture of Butte County.”

Outside of Chico, the small California city of Paradise was almost completely destroyed by the fire. Nearly all the buildings belonging to St. Thomas More Parish succumbed to the blaze.

Jim Collins, leader of relief efforts at the parish, said volunteers have set up a call center to contact parishioners who are still unaccounted for. As of last week, the volunteers had made contact with just twenty percent of the parish list; the rest were unaccounted for, or had likely lost their landline service in the fire.

“We have an expectation of about 80% [of our 800 parishioners] burned out of their homes, and maybe 20% [of their homes] still standing,” Collins told CNA. “About 80% across the board have lost everything.”

“What we’d like to do now is to direct donations to those most in need, so we worked out kind of a triage to identify those most in need who would normally be those who did not own homes, who were living in rentals that were totally destroyed, and have no insurance compensation coming,” Collins said.

“And also those living in trailers or trailer parks, and that’s a substantial number of our parishioners because it’s kind of a low-income area up in Paradise.”

Ritter said that ongoing support will be important for people in communities like Paradise.

Although there is generally “a huge and very emotional” outpouring of support for victims of a disaster within the first 48 hours, he said, resources will still be needed in six months or a year after the fire.

While individuals and corporations have made generous donations in response to the disaster, “my big ask for people is not to lose that enthusiasm because we're talking about many months or even years for a real recovery here,” he said.

“The need for aid is going to be just as real [six months or a year from now] as it is now.”
