On Saturday Mass' Gospel [Luke 12:8-12]
tell you, everyone who acknowledges
me before others the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of
God. But whoever denies
me before others will be denied before the angels of God. [Luke
" as well
as the "denial
" refers to 'by
deed' and not necessarily 'by word'. As we do not tire of pointing out:
"Talk is so cheap that is has no value
If only a small percentage of those who claim to be Christian (of all
denominations) acknowledged Him by deed
and not just by word
world would be close to
a paradisiacal state. What will be left of the world population
will provide the final confirmation to our words.
Did you know that.....
robots are being passed for humans in the 'social media' world and
influencing real humans? (1)
A social bot - a social robot - is a
particular type of chatterbot that is employed in social media networks
to automatically generate messages (e.g. tweets) or in general advocate
certain ideas, support campaigns, and public relations either by acting
as a "follower" or even as a fake account that gathers followers
Social bots appear to have played a significant role in the United
States presidential election, 2016 and their history appears to go back
at least to the United States midterm elections, 2010. It is estimated
that 15% of the total Twitter population active in the US Presidential
election discussion were bots. At least 400,000 thousand bots
were responsible for about 3.8 million tweets, roughly 19% of
the total volume.
Twitterbots are already well-known examples, but corresponding
autonomous agents on Facebook and elsewhere have also been observed.
Nowadays, social bots can
generate convincing internet personas that are well capable of
influencing real people, although they are not always reliable.

As you know, there are many technological non-human assistants that
people can talk to in the Smart Phones, Tablets, etc., etc.
That has been made possible by algorithms that can perform calculation,
data processing and automated reasoning tasks. That is, created
Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Now then, we are waiting for the debut of the AJ - the Artificial
Jesus. There is enough logic and reasoning in the New Testament pages
to create a very believable Artificial Jesus. We have no doubt
whatsoever that it has been done already and it will be launched at the
same time or just before the False Christ makes his debut.
As the saying goes - forewarned is forearmed.

ultra non-nuclear Japan has seen the proverbial light... which means
that said 'light' must be very bright!
Japanese defense minister sounds alarm
on North Korea (1)
Japan's defense minister asserted
Monday that North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities
have grown to an "unprecedented, critical and imminent" level,
requiring "different responses" to the threat.
The minister, Itsunori Odonera, said that this rising threat compels
his country to endorse the U.S. view that "all options" must be
considered, which President Donald Trump says includes possible
military action. Japan was alarmed by North Korea twice launching
missiles over Japanese territory, in August and in September.

The Sunday Mass Gospel [Mt 22:15-21]
ended as follows:
us, then, what is your opinion: Is it lawful to pay the census tax to
Caesar or not?" Knowing their malice, Jesus said, "Why are you testing
me, you hypocrites? Show me the coin that pays the census tax."
Then they handed him the Roman coin.
He said to them, "Whose image is this and whose inscription?" They
replied, "Caesar's." At that he said to them, "Then repay to Caesar
what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God."
What does that really mean? It is quite simple....
When one's judgment and decisions are based the financial outcome of
such decision, that individual is not of God - no matter what he/she
On the other hand, when the judgment is based on the teachings of the
Word of God, that individual is of God - even if he/she claims to ba an
atheist as the result of their revulsion towards the "Evangelizers".
You see? All is so incredibly simple!
While composing/meditating the above I realized that for the following
to manifest itself in our lives....
ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice, and all these things shall be added
unto you. [Mat 6:33]

a shred of a doubt
that our judgments are based by the Word of God and not by the

In the first reading [Rom. 4:1-8]
of yesterday's Mass we hear again the often repeated
comparison of being saved (justified) by the works versus being saved
(justified) by the faith.
Allow us to bring this comparison into today's realities.
The "works" today should be seen
through the 'Christian' motions" by those who consider themselves
should be seen as "behaving as a Christian" simply because one has
faith in the
Words and Teachings of Jesus Christ.
The Gospel [Luke 12:1-7]
of that same Mass again
not to be afraid of those who kill the body, but to, instead, be afraid
the one who after killing the body has the power to cast the soul into
Let us deliver the core message in
simple and easily understand words in today's world: Do not sell your soul to save your body
or, in even better understood terms in the light of frequently read
news: Do not sell your soul (by
selling your body) to save/promote your career.
We know that the world, who mostly lives in denial, likes to forget
that Jesus said in very clear terms....
narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few
there are that find it! [Matthew 7:14]
....and that is exactly what He meant.
Brethren, the first step in reducing one's suffering at either side of
the veil (assuming one is counted among the Elect) is to abandon the
state of denial, acknowledge all that one has done that is contrary to
Word of God and appeal to His Mercy. God will not
reject a sorrowful
and contrite heart; however, He will summarily reject a hypocritical
and ritualistic (going through the motions) heart.
The worst sin that
man may have ever committed is but a grain of sand when compared to the
Oceans of His Mercy!
more we need His Mercy the more He wants to grant it to us.
Call me obsessive-compulsive but I just want to make absolutely sure
that ....I am innocent
of the blood of any....
For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God.
I do not want anyone in the Purgatory telling me: If you had only told (warned) me about
...meanwhile, back to the world....

New York City is getting serious about prepping its five boroughs for a
high-tech future? (1)
The city announced on Thursday a
program called NYCx to help the city better prepare for and shape the
NYCx will focus on coming innovations such as 5G connectivity,
self-driving cars or artificial intelligence, and how they can make the
city equitable and sustainable. NYCx will do this through moonshot
challenges, which encourage entrepreneurs to tackle the city's biggest
problems. Anyone can apply.
In an unlikely move for a city, New York is also hiring a senior
futurist to gather insights on possible cultural, economic and
environmental changes ahead. Futurists say that good forecasting can
save cities billion of dollars by making prescient policies and
decisions that can have an impact for 40 or 50 years.
They should instead read the Sequence

since it was written and then.... start praying. It is all for free!
Last week we heard that....
Fox business reported that Washington Post will run an ad from
Larry Flynt and Hustler Magazine announcing a cash offer of up to 10
million dollars for information leading to the impeachment and removal
office of Donald J. Trump.
The New York times rejected the ad.
What an opportunity the White House missed! By identifying Mr. Flynt
and Hustler Magazine as Mr. Trump enemies, citing their below sewer
standards and invoking the Bible, Mr. Trump
would have come out smelling as the proverbial rose.

after He had called them together, He said to them in parables:

itself, that house cannot stand. And if Satan be risen up

Just an observation and not "Trump promotion".
Now, as far as what that means to the general public: The difference between the New York Times

We recently found out that when Card. Ratzinger was elected as Benedict
XVI, Card. Jorge Maria Bergoglio, who eight
later became Francis, was a very close first runner up.
What struck us was the parallel with the Presidency of Mr. Clinton - a
Presidency lasting eight years
- which was blamed by Mr. Gorbachev for the delay (1)
of the establishment of
the New World Order (2)
Amazingly enough - but in keeping with Divine Designs - having God
delayed the efforts to establish a New World Order by electing and
keeping Mr. Clinton eight years in office, He also had to delay the
efforts to establish the One World Religion by eight years. That He did
by causing Ratzinger to be elected over Bergoglio and, when the eight
years were up, Benedict XVI resigned.
Can anyone imagine where the world would be now if Francis had been
"Pope" since 2005?
God in His infinite Mercy compressed that period so that ....those days had been shortened,
no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days
shall be shortened
. [Matthew 24:22]

be more than a little confused:

he strictly charged them that they should not make him known. [Mark
 Then he saith to the man: Stretch forth thy hand; and he

Design Corp - Kamennostrovskii pr. 26-28, Saint Peterburg,
anyone celebrate.... the
Miracle of the Sun at Fatima 100 years ago?
On October 13th we received a mailing from a traditional Catholic
author with the following Subject: Happy
The text in the message read: The
Big Day: What Actually Happened on October 13, 1917: A Post on the Full
Truth of Fatima
To prevent uncharitable thoughts we avoided accessing the recommended
text because, when we think about that - unsurpassed in confirmed
recorded history -
magnificent Miracle my emotions explode with mixture of
Thanksgiving, Rage and Sorrow.
Allow us to briefly explain why I feel that way and believe that that
date should be observed as day of mourning....
1. God performed a miracle without
parallel in confirmed recorded history. A miracle that even the
who were running Portugal at the time had to acknowledge.
2. A miracle which was the Divine seal of legitimacy on the requests
God made to
the leadership of the Roman Catholic Church through Mary at Fatima.
There should have been no doubt that "God was behind Fatima" and what
He requested had to be
3. God gave 12 years to the RCC bureaucrats to ponder His requests and
then, informed them that it was time to obey His requests.
4. The leaders of the Roman Catholic Church summarily ignored the
confirmed-by-the-miracle requests from God.
5. The bloodiest and most miserable century of recorded human history
ensued with World War II and the spread of Communism.
Do you have any idea how God and Mary must have felt as they witnessed
the slaughter and misery of their children because those who claim to
represent Him, once again
Now we ask again: Is the 100th
Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima a day to celebrate or a

The following is an excerpt from a letter received from a close
[Name has been changed to protect the privacy of all
I'm understanding/interpreting from your response, is this: We,
whom Joe considered to be his “real” family, somehow along the way,
switched from being his supporters to becoming his enablers. And
that this transition happened without any of us even realizing it.
I have difficulty grasping how we
could not be aware of this, as well as accepting the “blanket”
conclusion that “no one” ever notices the difference between charity
As we stated in our original communication to our collaborator - this
is one of the most used - and effective - tricks used by satan
since he has the possibility of "hitting" both sides in every
interaction. Indeed we must exercise great charity towards those who
are truly struggling
to escape their dysfunctional behavior, however, we must be quite firm

tell one from the other?
Instead of using complex
theological terms, we will use simple
Example No. 1
Our best contact in Salamanca was a
good friend who was well placed in the local legal and military
Whenever I visited Salamanca, all I had to do, upon arrival, was to
call on the phone and
they would roll out the proverbial red carpet and prepare a sumptuous
dinner for me - without any prior notice.
Example No. 2
His problem - a foul mouth. I gently, but firmly, asked him not to use
such language. At times he would struggle to avoid such language,
therefore, I would go the extra mile and tolerated the few words that
escaped him. Then, one day, he decided that "enough was enough" and out
of his mouth started to pour foul and sacrilegious language again. I
terminated the relationship immediately making sure he knew why;
while at the same time leaving the door open in case that he wanted to
clean up his language and restart our friendship.
You see, I knew perfectly well that in discharging his
professions he was in contact with many professionals, and
appeared in many courtrooms, yet he would not use that kind of
unacceptable language. He had the intellect and will to eliminate such
language if he wanted to, but he consciously chose to stain my ears and
brain with foul
and sacrilegious language. That was more than enough reason to cut off
the (very advantageous to me) friendship.
Years later, he spotted me in Salamanca.... rushed to me, embraced and
kissed me (that is customary here among male close friends) and all is
A symbolic way to
convey the same message:

(d) You turn around and, alone, swim back to safety and let him/her
While on this subject, let us now talk about forgiveness.
In response to Peter's question:
Lord, how often shall my brother offend against me, and I forgive him?
till seven times?
Jesus said to him: I say not
to thee, till seven times; but till seventy times seven times
Of course, that is indeed true unless
by doing so we are
becoming enablers to the offender.
How can we tell if we are becoming enablers or not through our repeated

Regarding the writer's statement: "I have difficulty.... accepting the 'blanket' conclusion

Correction - instead of writing 'no
' we should have
' to be
coherent with the beginning of our paragraph which we now quote, in its
original and incorrect from, below:
all of you fell for another of satan's favorite tricks: Your family
became Joe's enablers. There is a fine distinction between providing
support and feeding the dysfunction. Without, first, Divine
Illumination, and second, psychiatric help, most humans fall for it. As
we have said many times - "satan was not born yesterday!" he disguises
enabling with charity and no
one notices it.
Unfortunately we do not have a
physical staff to provide all of
support that we need to fulfill God's Will, and such errors in syntax
escape us once in a while.
That is why we have the following standing request to our readers: If you read something that seems
incoherent or makes no sense, let us know right away

the above quoted collaborator did and for which
we are thankful.

Recent Mass readings have dealt with Jonas and Ninive.
There are some gems hidden in the Jonas-Ninive saga that seldom see the
light. We would like to bring them to your attention now in case you
may not be aware of them.
We all know that finally Jonas marched through Ninive announcing its
impending destruction (Jonas 3)
and that even the
had to do penance and fast. The King said: Who can tell if God will turn, and
forgive: and will turn away from his fierce anger, and we shall not
First gem: Notice that Ninive's King did not barter with God - as most
Christians do - and he offered the sacrifice upfront hoping that God
would have Mercy on them. That IS the way it should be done and not
as most Christians
do who promise God some sacrifice only
if He does this
. Yes, we are referring to
those typically Catholic "promises" that are made to God. (*)
This is not the fault of the Faithful. This is the fault of the alleged
We are to always offer the sacrifice "up front" and then, abandoning
to His Mercy, pray that He accepts it and grant whatever we seek.
Second gem: God relented and did not destroy Ninive (Jonas 4)
and Jonas, instead of rejoicing was mad at God for He was Merciful.
us take a look at what God said to Jonas about His actions: And shall not I spare Ninive, that
great city, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons that know not how to
distinguish between their right hand and their left, and many
Fast forward to the time of Jesus. Didn't He say: But he that knew not, and did things
worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes [Luke
? There you have it - the Ninivites did know not how to distinguish between their
right hand and their left
but did what they could,
without bartering with God, and the consequences of their past actions
were blotted out: Divine Justice overturned by Divine Mercy.
As you may know, eventually Ninive was destroyed.... but why after
Well, by then, having been saved by the Mercy of God, they now knew
well how to distinguish
between their right hand and their left,
yet they went back to
their sinful ways. Perfectly coherent with what Jesus also said: And unto whomsoever much is given, of him
much shall be required: and to whom they have committed much, of him
they will demand the more. [Luke 12:48 B]

....which brings us to.....
The Gospel that we read last Sunday was from Luke 17:5-10. The second
part of the gospel sounds quite rough and perhaps, to many, the message
gets lost as the result of such roughness. To wit:
Suppose one of you has a servant plowing or looking after the sheep.
Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‘Come along
now and sit down to eat’? 8 Won't he rather say, ‘Prepare my supper,
get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you
may eat and drink’? 9 Will he thank the servant because he did what he
was told to do? 10 So you also, when you have done everything you were
told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done
If we look at it objectively
under the light of: (a) the real Creation story; and (b) our
frequent complaints to God for everything an anything, the message may
become crystal clear.
Allow us to explain....
1. God creates man in His image and
places Creation in his hands. The only requirement was not to try to
take His place.
2. Man try to take God's place and gets summarily kicked out of a
[The Adam and Eve is a symbolic, but very accurate,
representation of what really happened.]
3. God allows man to tumble and stumble paying for his arrogance, then,
He calls Abraham into action.
4. Abraham, Moses, the prophets, etc. come and go and man continues
stumble, now paying for his stupidity.
5. Finally God manifests Himself in a human body - Jesus - with a
message that can be summarized as: "What
is what you, blockheads, do
not understand about the Law and the Prophets?" In an effort to
help us see what we are blind to.
6. God is even willing to pay for the return-to-paradise ticket for us
blockheads with only one
condition.... we must serve Him by serving one
another - by striving to be like Him - as we journey through
Now, review the above quoted Gospel reading again. Does it look that
We are unworthy servants - unworthy of God manifesting Himself in a
human body and suffer the unspeakable for our benefit.
Do we expect to be thanked by Him for our "generosity" in accepting the
We are not even worthy of the crumbs that fall off His table [Mat.
, yet we complain about everything!
Perhaps we should start wearing our shoes on our knees as we "walk"
about on them making reparation for the continued offenses that we do
not seem to stop "gifting" God with!
Let us take the Publican's attitude and forego that of the Pharisee [Luke
- our favorite one! - and maybe He will have Mercy on
us - a Mercy that we
do not deserve
, but will humbly and full of gratitude accept!
Monday's Gospel [Luke
10:25-37] and the Second Law: "....(love)
thy neighbour as thyself."
We strongly suggest that we all clearly
understand what God means by "loving thy neighbor". It is not
convenient version of it.
When we show Mercy for someone - known or unknown (1)
to us - we are
fulfilling the Second Law. This action, in turn, greatly benefits us
since He said "Blessed are the
merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
" [Matthew 5:7]
- a promise which I believe without the slightest doubt!
Brethren - it is all that simple !!!!
Think about all of that as you see the world collapsing unto itself.
How simple it would have been to avoid all of it! ....and the next

you heard that..... Francis
and Orthodox leader make climate change appeal to 'heal wounded
Francis and Orthodox Christian leader Patriarch Bartholomew called on
Friday for a collective response from world leaders to climate change,
saying the planet was deteriorating and vulnerable people were the
first to be affected.
The appeal comes three months after U.S.
President Donald Trump withdrew from a global agreement, struck in
Paris, to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
“We urgently appeal to those in positions
of social and economic, as well as political and cultural,
responsibility to hear the cry of the earth and to attend to the needs
of the marginalized,” Francis and Bartholomew said in a joint statement.
They still do not get it! A wounded creation is the product of wounded
souls who - after 2,000 years of make-me-rich "Evangelization" - are
still severely wounded, ignorant and disoriented.
Of course, they have managed to transfer the responsibility of a failed
Evangelization to Mr. Trump. [Remember! We are no 'Trump
lovers'. We are just illustrating the level of the pass-the-buck
mentality of "Their Holinesses".]
Why should we be surprised - the "crown jewel" of the Spanish
Cardinals - Rouco Varela - in a personal letter to miguel de Portugal (2) - squarely placed the
responsibility of the failed Evangelization effort on the faithful.
letter to miguel de Portugal
In the past - more than once - we have spoken
about the disproportionate importance given to
relics. A situation which is even made worse by the multitude of
obviously fake and supposedly "highly important" relics as, for
multitude of foreskin samples
allegedly from Jesus,
considerable amount of samples of maternal milk for Mary, enough wood
from Jesus' cross to almost build the famed bridge over the River Kwai,
and on and on.
It is quite understandable why so many Europeans
have lost the Faith
and kept the rituals as just another social event.
However, that does not mean that
legitimate relics should not be
appreciated - not adored nor used as talismans, but appreciated. We try
to see them as Holy Souvenirs
which certainly have a place in the
practicing of any faith.
Because of the bad press relics have been given by their inappropriate
usage in the Roman Catholic
Church, is why we have not
mentioned to you that we have some very special, and legitimate, Relics
that were given to us by a local family in Fatima. A family of very
humble beginnings, like all Fatima locals, and who became very wealthy
as the result of tourism. They had lost their way but God used me to
bring them back to Him. In appreciation they helped me while I was in
Fatima (1992 - 1993)
and gave me their two prized Relics: (a) a bit of the root, with dirt
included, of the holm oak upon which Mary used to appear to the
children; and (b) a baseball size rock/stone that was part of St.
Joseph's house in Nazareth.
They picked up the root and associated dirt as
the builders were
preparing the place where Our Lady of Fatima statue is placed in the
Chapel of the Apparitions today - which is exactly where the original
holm oak stood. The part of St. Joseph's house wall was taken when they
visited Nazareth many years ago.... while the guides and guards were
not looking.... No; this is not a joke. It was forbidden to take
anything from there.
We also have a second category relic which is a
small branch off the
particular pine tree upon which Mary appeared at The Pines in
course, those are still available if one travels to Garabandal...
assuming that the pines are still standing.
A tiny sample of each have been built into the
crucifix we use during
Mass. The rest are just stored.
Moral of the story: Legitimate
relics have a place in
practicing the faith, but never to be placed above the Absolute Reality
of the Eucharistc Presence of Jesus or used as talismans.

much appreciated God's "Consolation Wink" you just mailed to the
Focused Prayer Group.
What struck me Monday morning upon watching live coverage of the Las
Vegas massacre, was a sign with huge letters that read "PRAY FOR LAS VEGAS!
Considering the nickname this city has had for a long time -- Sin City
-- I considered this to be quite significant.
Prayers and sacrifices continue…
In His Holy Name,
Thank you for your kind
feedback, prayers and sacrifices since the silence from out List
usually is deafening, and most discouraging.
The sign at Las Vegas connected and viewed, as you did, with Las Vegas'
nickname of Sin City should be taken as another "Consolation Wink" for
the Focused Prayer Group.

On Yom Kippur, Mark
Zuckerberg, the Facebook creator, publicly apologized for his social
media creation on Saturday. (1)
In the Jewish tradition of asking for
forgiveness around the High Holidays, Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg
publicly apologized for his social media creation on Saturday.
“Tonight concludes Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for Jews
when we reflect on the past year and ask forgiveness for our mistakes,”
wrote Zuckerberg, who is Jewish. After asking for personal forgiveness,
he continued on to address a more global issue.
“For the ways my work was used to divide people rather than bring us
together, I ask forgiveness and I will work to do better.”
Mark Zuckerberg, a 'good' Jew, as most Christians are 'good' Christians
- just pure and
adulterated lip service.
If he were really sorry, he would shut Facebook down until it
completely changed and then launched it again. That is, of course,
after donating to worthwhile charities the billions he has stolen by
. It looks liket he would make a good
Japan is considering....
killing cash by launching own cryptocurrency? (1)
Authorities in Japan are considering
starting a digital currency to be called the J-Coin. By doing so, Tokyo
will reduce cash circulation
in the country.
The project has the support of the central bank and regulators. The
J-Coin will allow Japanese consumers to pay for goods and services with
their smart phones.
The government's goal is to cut dependence on cash, which represents 70
percent of all transactions by value in Japan. The J-Coin will be
exchanged at a one-to-one rate with the yen.
Have the Japanese been reading the Book of Revelations....?

say, "The LORD's way is not fair!" Hear now, house of Israel: Is it my
way that is unfair, or rather, are not your ways unfair?
When someone virtuous turns away from
virtue to commit iniquity, and dies, it is because of the iniquity he
committed that he must die. But if he
turns from the wickedness he has committed, and does what is right and
just, he shall preserve his life; since he has turned away from all the
sins that he has committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
God is counting on us to help those who need to turn from wickedness
and embrace what is right.
Let us make sure that when we cross the veil, we do so with full hands

Have you heard
a high-tech millionaire has founded a new religion based on the belief
that artificial intelligence will surpass man, and proclaims
the future, man will worship
a divine supercomputer? (1)
Anthony Levandowski, the key engineer
behind much of the technology used by the multi-billion dollar
self-driving car industry, filed paperwork in California two years ago
creating a new religious organization called Way of the Future.
Levandowski is currently between projects and is using his time to
pursue his religion more seriously.
Way of the Future is dedicated to “develop and promote the realization
of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and through
understanding and worship of the Godhead contribute to the betterment

It is obviously His Will that.... we
now bring the following matter
to the world's attention again....
interesting that man will again attempt to build a "new and improved"
society, a modern day Tower of Babel, when we know, from the
that it was not acceptable to God? Thus:
they said: Come, let us make a city and a tower, the
top whereof may reach to heaven: and let us make our name famous before
we be scattered abroad into all lands. And the Lord came down to
see the city and the tower, which the children of Adam were
building. And he said: Behold, it is one people, and all have one
tongue: and they have begun to do this, neither will they leave off
from their designs, till they accomplish them in deed. Come ye,
therefore, let us go down, and there confound their tongue, that they
may not understand one another's speech. And so the Lord
scattered them from that place into all lands, and they ceased to build
9 And therefore the name
thereof was called Babel,
because there the language of the whole
earth was confounded: and from
thence the Lord scattered them abroad upon the face of all countries.
it for the
same reason he wants to play God again (genetic manipulation,
manipulation, artificial intelligence, etc.), considering that, from
the very, very beginning
showed immense displeasure at such tendency. Thus:
the fruit of the trees that are in paradise we do eat: But of the fruit of the
tree which is
in the midst of paradise, God hath commanded us that we should not eat;
and that we should not touch it, lest perhaps we die. And the serpent said to the woman:
No, you shall not die the death. For God doth know that in what
day soever you shall eat
thereof, your eyes shall be opened: and you shall be as Gods, knowing
good and evil. [Genesis 3: 2-5]
The reason is
quite simple -
man, without God, is basically very stupid and when man wants to
upstage God, God is certainly not with him nor will allow it in the
end. No matter if they claim
to be doing the Work of God - as Opus Dei claims - or improving
humanity's quality via artificial intelligence - as Silicon Valley
As you see the world crumble into a heap of

the Liturgical and Astronomical calendar for the month of October.
We have added two more dates associated with Judaism and one with
Catholicism - they seem to fit just right. To avoid confusion, we have
also changed the Jewish custom that "the next day starts at sundown".
Henceforth, the day starts at midnight and ends 24 hours later, period!
If we were going to use the Sun to establish the beginning of day it
would be at Dawn AND NOT at Sundown.
