Justin Bieber ‘told off’ during visit to Vatican!!

The pop star Justin Bieber was reportedly reprimanded for kicking a football around the Vatican last week.

The “One Time” singer paid £16,000 for a private tour of Vatican City, taking in the Vatican museum and the papal apartments, which are not occupied by Pope Francis. But it is understood that he irritated staff when he began to kick a ball around the corridors.

The 20-year-old previously embarrassed himself on The Late Show with David Letterman when he referred to the Sistine Chapel as the “Sixteenth Chapel”.

The singer was born in Canada and raised a Christian. In the past he has said that Jesus is the “reason I am here”.

His mother, Pattie Mallette, was baptized and raised a Catholic, and her son attended a Catholic school.





This is a critical issue folks!  The 2nd nurse diagnosed yesterday with Ebola was traveling on Frontier Flight number 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas / Fort Worth International (DFW) on Monday, October 13.  Just one day before being diagnosed with Ebola.   Her flight landed at 8:16 pm Dallas time.  The nurse had flown from Dallas Fort Worth to Cleveland on Frontier flight 1142 on October 10th.  The CDC is asking all 132 passengers who flew on that flight or on the October 10th flight to call 1-800-232-4636.

October 14th travel for this airplane is not discussed.

On October 15 at approx 1:00 am MT time Frontier Airlines was notified by the CDC that the nurse had been a traveling customer on their flight.  The flight did not leave the airport that evening (Oct 13) having completed its scheduled flights for the day.   Frontier states that the plane received a thorough cleaning “per our normal procedures which is consistent with CDC guidelines prior to returning to service the next day.”

The troubling part of that comment was that it was “normal procedures”.   They did not state per the recent guidelines given to assist in the protection against Ebola.  On October 9, airline cabin cleaners went on strike over fears that they were not properly equipped and protected.   Something tells me their cleaning plan is about as effective as the nursing care protection has been thus far.

Why was this nurse who directly cared for Thomas Duncan on a plane TWO DAYS after he died?    Certainly it does not take a rocket scientist to see that the people at the highest risk are those who were in the closest proximity to this man who was infected.  We allowed this woman to “self monitor” which was accompanied by very poor judgement on her part.

I have done a lot of travel on airplanes in my previous consulting career.  I began to think of every opportunity I would have to expose others to an illness.  Here is the litany.  The CDC is looking for the travelers on the plane.  But this is so much bigger…  Click here to read the rest of the story on Stepping Stones Living…




For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. Romans  1:26-27

You’ve all heard the story of the frog in boiling water. If you drop a frog into boiling water, it immediately jumps out. However, if you put a frog in a pot of room-temperature water, and then bring the water to a boil very, very slowly, the frog will stay in the water until it dies. Timing is everything.

Like a fox carefully waiting for exactly the right moment, Pope Francis has begun to take the steps necessary to incorporate a full acceptance of homosexuality into the Catholic church. After all, if you are planning on building the One World Church, you need a wide base.

First comes “tolerance”, followed closely by “acceptance”. Then comes domination and the driving out of all dissenting thought and opinion. This is exactly the pattern Barack Obama has used to propel the LGBT to a position of prominence in America. Isn’t it amazing how less than 8% of the world’s population can drive policy and change laws? Such is life in the last days…

Bergoglio Heretic

 Roman Catholic gay rights groups around the world hailed the paper as a breakthrough, but Church conservatives called it a betrayal of traditional family values.

In a dramatic shift in tone, a Vatican document said on Monday that homosexuals had “gifts and qualities to offer” and asked if Catholicism could accept gays and recognize positive aspects of same-sex couples.

The document, prepared after a week of discussions at an assembly of 200 bishops on the family, said the Church should challenge itself to find “a fraternal space” for homosexuals without compromising Catholic doctrine on family and matrimony.

 “Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer the Christian community: are we capable of welcoming these people, guaranteeing to them a further space in our communities? Often they wish to encounter a Church that offers them a welcoming home,” said the document, known by its Latin name “relatio”.

“Are our communities capable of proving that, accepting and valuing their sexual orientation, without compromising Catholic doctrine on the family and matrimony?” it asked.

 New Ways Ministry, a leading U.S. Catholic gay rights group, called it a “major step forward”, praising it for being devoid of the “major gloom and doom and apocalyptic horror” that accompanied past Vatican pronouncements on homosexuals.


“Catholics were among those who persecuted and denounced the Pentecostals, almost as if they were crazy!!,”

francis changing the vatican

“I am the shepherd of the Catholics and I ask you to forgive my Catholic brothers and sisters who did not understand and were tempted by the devil!?!”

Pope Francis-Bergoglio is our chastisement! Domine, miserere nobis.

CASERTA, Italy (RNS) Pope Francis sought forgiveness for decades of persecution of Italian Pentecostals when he met with around 300 evangelicals from the U.S., Argentina and Italy in the southern town of Caserta on Monday (July 28).

The pope made his second visit in as many days to the Mafia stronghold near Naples, this time to meet evangelical pastor Giovanni Traettino, whom he befriended while he was archbishop of Buenos Aires.

During the visit, Francis apologized for the persecution suffered by Pentecostals under Italy’s fascist regime in the 1920s and 1930s and urged Christians to celebrate their diversity and unity.

“Catholics were among those who persecuted and denounced the Pentecostals, almost as if they were crazy,” Francis said.

“I am the shepherd of the Catholics and I ask you to forgive my Catholic brothers and sisters who did not understand and were tempted by the devil.”

Since his election last year, the pope has been reaching out to other faiths and has held talks with Protestant, Jewish and Muslim leaders. On Monday, he went even further by apologizing for what Catholics had done.

Luca Baratto, a pastor from the Italian Federation of Evangelical Churches, said the pope’s apology was unexpected and greatly appreciated.

“It is very important to remember the racial laws through which the Pentecostals were victims under fascism,” he told the Italian news agency, AdnKronos. “We really appreciate the opening of dialogue by this pope.”

Calling the pope “my beloved brother,” Traettino said the evangelical community was deeply grateful for the visit, which would have been unthinkable until recently.

Indeed, whereas now-retired Pope Benedict XVI channeled his energies into trying to reconcile with traditionalist Catholics, Francis has spent more time reaching out to conservative evangelical leaders; his recent three-hour meeting with American televangelists raised some eyebrows and resulted in what was dubbed the first-ever papal high-five.

“With a single gesture he has opened the door wider, overcoming any complications of protocol and going directly to the heart of human relations,” Traettino said of his meeting with Francis.

One participant said it was a very emotional moment when the pope asked forgiveness, and “everyone was in tears.”

The pope arrived in Caserta by helicopter and after a private conversation at Traettino’s home, he met with the community of the Evangelical  Church of Reconciliation at the site of their church, which is under construction.

A notable absentee was Bishop Tony Palmer, the charismatic preacher who used a cellphone camera to record Francis’ appeal for unity between Catholics and evangelicals. He was killed just over a week ago (July 20) in a motorcycle crash in the United Kingdom.

On Saturday, around 200,000 faithful gathered for the pope’s first stop in Caserta, a stronghold of the notorious Naples Mafia known as Camorra.

The pontiff did not mention the Camorra, which runs a vast organized crime empire including drug trafficking, money laundering and extortion, but spoke out against “corruption and lawlessness” during his address.


Galantino defends attacking… “the expressionless faces of those who recite the Rosary!”

abortion is the Anti-christs paradody

The Secretary General of the Italian Episcopal Conference despised  “the expressionless faces of those who recite the Rosary before the clinics where abortion is practiced.”

Nunzio Galantino is Secretary General of the Italian Episcopal Conference since last December, when as Bishop of Cassano all’Jonio Pope Francisco you? Appointed to that position.

The last May gave an interview to “Quotidiano” in which he referred to these derogatory terms to the many faithful that all abortorios world focus to pray the Rosary to Our Lady for an end to the scourge of abortion.

The reporter asked if the CIS had invested heavily in “non-negotiable values” (life, family, education), to which Galantino responded:

“We believe in the sacredness of life. In the past we have focused only on abortion and euthanasia. You can not, in the middle is the existence that develops. I do not identify with the expressionless faces of those who recite the rosary outside clinics who practice abortion, but with young people who are opposed to this practice and strive for the quality of life of the people, for the right to health, to work. “

On what its like for the Italian Church, Galantino said:

“You can talk about any topic, as married priests, the Eucharist to divorced, homosexuality, without taboos, from the Gospel and giving reasons for our positions.”

“And then what would you say to a couple of gay believers living together faithfully for years?”  asked the reporter:

“I would listen to your story, as I try to do for all relationships between people I have ever encountered and I am still. It is not necessary to always have something to say. Many times it is important to listen before speaking. “

His defense came in an interview to the magazine Sempre, which incorporates section agency Zenit Italian and translated into Spanish blog Secretum meum mihi

Holy Rosary 3

(Zenit)  –  The Secretary believes that the CIS has been dealt a wrong due to media manipulation. “The interview in question, he explains, was born in a specific context: the influence of the media. At that time I stated that we should be particularly attentive to the television which uses only images that help support the person’s own thesis. I cited the example of framing the color expressionless face those who recite the rosary in front of abortion clinics against. “

A media method “seeks depontenciar not only recited the rosary in front of the clinic, but also the great and extraordinary movement, which is behind,” says Msgr. Galantino. Therefore, his was more of a warning to be on guard against such instrumentalities. The decontextualized statement of the interview was therefore wrong font. “Sometimes, reflects the prelate exponents of certain of our movements do not read the interview in its entirety, but only the title of the newspaper, which obviously has every interest to choose only those expressions that scandal and create problems. Thus began trills 10,000 or 15,000 Facebook posts against Bishop Galantino … “.

In this context of criticisms that have been turned against the Secretary of the CIS states he was “impressed” by the “summary malice of certain persons who claim to recite the rosary. It is disturbing to know that whoever recites the Rosary to be able to express yourself with these colors with this verbal violence. “

R.I.P.  –  Tony Palmer

Died July 20, 2014

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis will visit the southern Italian city of Caserta later this month to meet with both Catholic and Evangelical leaders there. Fr Federico Lombardi, director of the Holy See’s press office, announced on Thursday that the Pope will travel by helicopter to the city on the afternoon of Saturday July 26th for a meeting with the clergy of the diocese, followed by an open-air Mass in front of the famous Royal Palace known as the Reggia di Caserta.
On Saturday evening Pope Francis will return to the Vatican but on Monday the 28th he will travel down to the city again for a private visit with the leader of the Italy’s Evangelical Church of Reconciliation, Rev. Giovanni Traettino. Pope Francis became friends with the Pentecostal pastor when, as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, he took part in ecumenical events alongside Catholics from the charismatic renewal movement. The then-Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, along with Traettino and Capuchin Fr Raniero Cantalamessa, preacher of the papal household, were the principal speakers at a large ecumenical charismatic gathering in the Argentinian capital in 2006. Last month, the Pope met privately with a group of evangelical pastors and televangelists at his Vatican residence.

Mysterious tribe in Amazon Rainforest makes first contact with outside world

A 2011 photo released by Survival International of uncontacted Indians seen from a Brazilian government's observation aircraft in the Brazilian Amazon forest, near the border with Peru. Last month, the government reportedly made contact with an uncontacted tribe in the same region where the footage was taken.

A 2011 photo released by Survival International of uncontacted Indians seen from a Brazilian government’s observation aircraft in the Brazilian Amazon forest, near the border with Peru. Last month, the government reportedly made contact with an uncontacted tribe in the same region where the footage was taken.

An isolated indigenous tribe in the Amazon Rainforest has made its first contact with mainstream society, according to the Brazilian government’s Indian affairs department, FUNAI.

But some fear the peaceful encounter with Brazilian government scientists in Acre State near the Peruvian border late last month could be a dangerous development for the uncontacted people, who are said to be extremely vulnerable to illnesses like the common cold.

The journal Science reported that the June 29 encounter was reportedly the government’s first with an uncontacted tribe since 1996.

After sightings last month, Brazil’s Indian Affairs warned that the uncontacted tribe could face risk of “tragedy” and “death,” according to Survival International, an advocacy group for indigenous tribes that has called on the Peruvian government to crack down on illegal deforestation that is believed to have caused the uncontacted peoples to flee.

The group is said to imitate animals as a way of expressing emotion — the sound of a jaguar for anger, a wild pig when scared — according to a Survival International interview with José Carlos Meirelles, an advisor to the Brazilian government who is one of the few to know anything about the reclusive group.

In 2011, Mr. Meirelles and the BBC shot video and photographs of an uncontacted tribe in the same region as last month’s encounter, though it was not clear whether it was the same tribe.

The shots were heralded as proof of the existence of uncontaced peoples amid accusations that reports of the tribes were no different than Scotland’s Loch Ness monster. Denials of uncontacted people have long been perpetuated by those with logging interests in the region, Ms. Eede wrote.

According to FUNAI, at least 77 isolated groups are believed to be living in the Amazon.
