Sometimes it is so irritating to own a computer. Mine had a major crash and it was as usual my fault. Needed more speed for video editing, so I upgraded my memory to 2 gigs of dram then downloaded a faster bios to move from the lower ram I was previously using. I checked to see if the power supply could handle the new components, the new current load. A week later the DVD writer gave up the Ghost and it was not the Holy One. It took along with it the Hard Drive and the power supply. Last week I got a newer one and a faster one for under $500. It is sure a lot faster. So I am back to irritate so many of you still.
The American Conference of Bishops say, write, save carbon. no mention of souls. What is their real concern?
A first question on which we should all contemplate, perhaps think differently about. “When will the Bishops of North America stop embarrassing us over our religious beliefs”? We must appear to be dead stupid and I mean in the religious sense of dead to other believers. Has the driving need for them, the Bishops, to be right about ecumenism addled their brains? It would seem to this man, they have minimized our old beliefs to make it easier to get converts, proving that the older church, I mean pre-Vatican two, was populated by hard nosed aesthetics. They have made fasting, a non mortification habit. Look at the carbon saving fast instituted by the US bishops, who must be seen as foolish dictatorial rulers. How much will it cause us to suffer by turning off a light? It seems more like bringing us into darkness than enlightening us. A following question, when will the Bishops, both Canadian and American stop interfering in Dioceses outside their country, outside their own dioceses, who claim and then deny the evidence provided by laymen and women on the ground in poverty stricken countries. They make out honest men and women in those countries to be either liars or fools all the while “ipsi dixiting” their, "we have spoken statements" which are their spin to prove it did not, was not happening. What did not happen? I mean the funding of groups lobbying for birth control and abortions in South America, with proven photos of these groups' posters. I forgot they do the same funding in the US for similar groups and stand mutely dumb as a denial.
So I ask again what of fasting? Remember now, whatever fasting you do, it is no longer necessary to be uncomfortable or even to miss the loss. After all, soon we will be brought to the foot of the Cross where Christ sits very comfortably suiting their hierarchical desires. It seems sufficient for these guardians of the faith to turn of the light, perhaps they are really like God who dimmed the lights when His Son expired and shook the earth with a fury we have yet to take note of. Was this act of Divine power carried out so we do not suffer the embarrassment of seeing His Son's Blood pour out as a torrent of love from His wounds?
They should all try to say...
I give You glory and praise Lord Jesus Christ, beloved Son of Mary and thank you for the precious gift of Your life's blood poured out upon the world to bring us to a state of everlasting grace.
