Wlodimir Ledochowski's Influential Uncle Arrested By Bismarck's 2nd Reich

Wlodimir Ledochowki's Influential Uncle:
According to The New York Times 1892
http://continuingcounterreformation.blogspot.com/2007/10/new-york-times-on-papacy-and-cardinal.html
(excerpt)
It is very well understood, however, that Monaco is entirely under the control of Ledochowski, that proud, imperious, and able Pole who made Bismarck such worlds of trouble in the old Kulterkampf day and who has been able to impose his will very often upon even the present Pope. This powerful man was in a German prison when Pius IX created him a Cardinal in 1875. Next year he was released and banished, and he has since lived in Rome, devoting his great wealth and talents to building up a militant Ultramontagne party about him. His wrath at the treatment he received at the hands of Bismarck has colored all his political views. He has hated both Germany and Italy and has looked unceasingly forward to the time when French bayonets should restore the temporal power of the Vatican in the old Roman States.

If we assume that this spirited and resolute prelate will shortly be ruling the Church through its nominal head, it becomes a most anxious question how he will accept the existing political conditions of Europe which have so radically changed since 1875. The new rulers of the Germans have been at pains to show their desire to abolish the last traces of the Kulterkampf. When the pending Prussian Education bill is passed, the German Catholics will be actually stronger than they were before the May laws. During the last half year these dispatches have frequently reflected the new interest which William and his immediate entourage are displaying in the Polish question. Of course a good deal of this has arisen naturally from the contemplation of the necessity of sooner or later fighting Russia: but even more it represents the effort to allure Ledochowski into friendship with Germany by an appeal to his national sentiment. How far this has successor will be, as has been said, a most anxious question.

In any event under this new regime there would be an abrupt cessation of pastorals on Socialistic and labor problems and of poems about St. Thomas Aquinas. We should instead see the Vatican boldly embark upon the troubled waters of European diplomacy, seeking alliances and taking desperate risks upon the fortune in the next war.
 “Should Old Pope Leo Die: the political tendencies of his successor. The Cardinal who would probably win the prize – his Polish supporter – affairs in France and Germany – Spurgeon’s return – Lord Lorne’s appointment",

Cardinal Wiseman THE DECISIVE BATTLE AGAINST PROTESTANTISM WOULD BE FOUGHT ON THE SANDS OF THE MARK OF BRANDENBURG
http://continuingcounterreformation.blogspot.com/2011/06/cardinal-wisemanthe-decisive-battle.html
(excerpt)
Prussia, the first Protestant Power in Germany, is the main support of German Protestantism, as, according to Moufang, France and Austria are the main supports of Catholicism. It is plain, therefore, that Austria and France were to give help against Prussia. The winged words of Cardinal Wiseman, which he uttered about 1850, that THE DECISIVE BATTLE AGAINST PROTESTANTISM WOULD BE FOUGHT ON THE SANDS OF THE MARK OF BRANDENBURG, have thus their political sense.

'But Ultramontanism is not a religious belief, it is a political system: and that political system is in my opinion essentially hostile to the principles on which the constitution of this country was established at the Reformation and at the Evolution.

19th Century Jesuits "Fervently Ultramontane, Devoted To The Sacred Heart, Fierce Defenders Of Pope Pius IX And The 1870 Definition Of Papal Infallibility And SuspiciousOf Liberalism In All Its Varieties"

http://goodjesuitbadjesuit.blogspot.com/2013/11/19th-century-jesuits-fervently.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+blogspot%2FZlcTj+%28Good+Jesuit%2C+Bad+Jesuit%29
In his introduction to The Cambridge Companion to the Jesuits (2008), editor Thomas Worcester realized he needed to address an imbalance in the volume: fourth-fifths of the essays addressed the history of Jesuits before their suppression in 1773.  “[T]here are relatively few good studies of the Jesuits since 1814 – in any part of the world – at least compared with the abundance of excellent work done on the history of the ‘old’ Society and its ‘corporate’ culture,” Worcester explained. “In general, the Society of Jesus, for much of the century and a half from its restoration until Vatican II, was conservative and even reactionary.” (7-8)
Just one year earlier, John McGreevy, made the point even stronger in America magazine.  Reviewing Gerald McKevitt’s Brokers of Culture: Italian Jesuits in the American West, 1848-1919 (Stanford, 2006), McGreevy wrote: 
“19th-century Jesuits – fervently ultramontane, devoted to the Sacred Heart, fierce defenders of Pope Pius IX and the 1870 definition of papal infallibility and suspicious of liberalism in all its varieties and the public schools that seemed to inculcate it – surely seemed unlikely role models for Jesuits and non-Jesuit scholars in the immediate postconciliar era.”
It might be difficult to identify with men whose worldview was shaped as much by the 1773-1814 suppression as by the European liberal revolutions that forced them into exile (once again) to all corners of the globe a generation later. And yet, to ignore the post-1814 Jesuits is to miss a crucial aspect of Catholic history over the last two centuries. For one thing, the story of the Jesuits in America, is a story of the Restored Society.  All but one of the twenty-eight Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States today – and all of the secondary schools – were founded by Restored Jesuits. But the story of the Restored Jesuits is far broader: they were a globalizing force in the “long nineteenth century,” the age reframed by C.A. Bayly, as The Birth of the Modern World, 1780-1914 (Blackwell, 2004). 2014 marks the bicentennial year of the lifting of the Suppression.  In commemoration of the Restoration, Loyola University Chicago is hosting a major conference on October 16-19, 2014.  It aims to bring together junior and senior scholars to begin a conversation about the contribution to American identity of both restored Jesuits and the women religious with whom they worked in their enterprises.  The conference aims at locating these initiatives within the specific experiential context of building an American nation. The stories of these men and women provide studies in what Thomas Tweed has termed Crossing and Dwelling (Harvard, 2006): the crossings and dwellings of refugees from European exclusions; transatlantic immigrants; multilingual and transnational identities; settlers in ethnic urban cores; boundary-dwellers in frontier peripheries.  A copy of CFP can be found here, with a February 1, 2014 deadline for proposals.

Wlodimir Ledochowski: One of the two or Three Greatest Jesuit Superior Generals
http://continuingcounterreformation.blogspot.com/2007/09/wlodimir-vladimir-ledochowski-one-of.html
Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, who met Father Ledochowski in 1930, wrote later that "everyone in Rome I was told that Father Ledochowski would rank as one of the two or three greatest heads of the Jesuit Order," an estimate which would group him with such men as Ignatius Loyola, [April 19, 1541 to July 31, 1556] the first [Jesuit] general, Francisco Borgia, [July 2, 1565 to October 1, 1572] the third, and [Claudius] Aquaviva, [Feb 19, 1581 to Jan 31, 1615] the fifth.

Wlodimir Ledochowski: Last of the Great Roman Generals
http://continuingcounterreformation.blogspot.com/2007/09/wlodimr-vladimir-ledochowski-last-of.html
It was during the twenty-seven year Generalate of Father Wlodzimierz Ledochowski (1915-1942) that the traditional character of the Society received the firmest stamp and clearest definition since the Generalate of Claudio Acquaviva in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. One might even say that Ledochowski insisted on fidelity to the structure of Jesuit obedience, was an almost merciless disciplinarian,and maintained a stream of instructions flowing out to the whole Society about every detail of Jesuit life and Ignatian ideals. He know exactly what Jesuits should be according to the Society’s Constitutions and traditions; and under strong hands of two quite authoritarian Popes, Pius XI and Pius XII, he reestablished the close ties that had once linked papacy and Jesuit Generalate. Ledochowski, in fact, gave renewed meaning to that old Roman nickname of the Jesuit Father General, “the Black Pope. Just as Pius XII can be described as the last of the great Roman Popes, so Ledochowski can be called the last of the great Roman Generals of the Jesuits.

President Obama,

The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) contains the following:

"The Congress makes the following findings and declarations:

(1) The Congress has long recognized the danger involved in the manufacture, distribution, and use of certain psychotropic substances for nonscientific and nonmedical purposes, and has provided strong and effective legislation to control illicit trafficking and to regulate legitimate uses of psychotropic substances in this country. Abuse of psychotropic substances has become a phenomenon common to many countries, however, and is not confined to national borders. It is, therefore, essential that the United States cooperate with other nations in establishing effective controls over international traffic in such substances."
https://www.law.cornell.edu...

Tobacco & alcohol are psychotropic (mood-altering) substances, affecting mental activity, behavior, or perception.

Tobacco & alcohol are the two most deadly & dangerous of all drugs.

Tobacco drug use accounts for more drug deaths (~480,000 tobacco drug deaths/year in the U.S.A.) than the summation of the drug deaths from the use of all other drugs, including alcohol, combined!

Tobacco meets the definition of a schedule I controlled substance.

Alcohol meets the definition of a schedule II controlled substance.
https://www.law.cornell.edu...

Tobacco & alcohol are unconstitutionally exempt from the CSA in violation of the Equal Protection Clause [21 U.S.C. § 802(6)].
https://www.law.cornell.edu...

Are there any scientific and/or medical purposes for the use of the psychotropic substances tobacco & alcohol? If there are, what are these scientific & medical purposes for the use of tobacco & alcohol?

What are the legitimate uses of the psychotropic substances, tobacco & alcohol, in this country?

What is(are) the reason(s) that tobacco & alcohol are exempt from the CSA?

Do you acknowledge that the CSA violates the Equal Protection Clause?

Why do you enforce the CSA when it violates the Equal Protection Clause?

Why haven't you called for Congress to either:

1) Repeal the exemptions of tobacco & alcohol and classify tobacco as a schedule I controlled substance and alcohol a schedule II; or

2) Repeal the entire CSA and abolish the DEA?

FOX Papal Mouthpiece Bill O Reilly Spun Out


Was visiting the Pope in Rome the day his firing by FOX News was announced.


Photo from the below quoted April 19, 2017 New York Times article

excerpt

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/19/world/europe/bill-oreilly-meets-pope-francis-in-vatican-vip-line.html?_r=0

ROME — Bill O’Reilly, the powerful Fox News host forced out of his prime-time position on Wednesday amid a barrage of sexual harassment allegations, spent the morning of his firing briefly meeting Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Square during the pontiff’s weekly general audience, shaking hands with a religious leader he once lectured over immigration.

Mr. O’Reilly, on vacation in Italy for the past week, sat in a V.I.P. section and shook hands with Francis.
The encounter came hours before 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, announced that Mr. O’Reilly had been forced out of his position after dozens of advertisers abandoned his highly rated program and the Murdoch family, which owns 21st Century Fox, began to show signs of eroding support. The family had supported Mr. O’Reilly in the past, but a New York Times article this month detailing harassment allegations against him put his standing atop cable television news in jeopardy....
The article goes on to state that the visit was planned months earlier, before the New York Times article of April 1, 2017 stating that O Reilly was the target of 5 separate claims of sexual misconduct that were settled by FOX for a total of about $13 million.
excerpt
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/01/business/media/bill-oreilly-sexual-harassment-fox-news.html

The women who made allegations against Mr. O’Reilly either worked for him or appeared on his show. They have complained about a wide range of behavior, including verbal abuse, lewd comments, unwanted advances and phone calls in which it sounded as if Mr. O’Reilly was masturbating, according to documents and interviews.

The reporting suggests a pattern: As an influential figure in the newsroom, Mr. O’Reilly would create a bond with some women by offering advice and promising to help them professionally. He then would pursue sexual relationships with them, causing some to fear that if they rebuffed him, their careers would stall.

Of the five settlements, two were previously known — one for about $9 million in 2004 with a producer, and another struck last year with a former on-air personality, which The Times reported on in January.
The Times has learned new details related to those cases.
The three other settlements were uncovered by The Times. Two involved sexual harassment claims against Mr. O’Reilly, and the other was for verbal abuse related to an episode in which he berated a young producer in front of newsroom colleagues.

Besides the women who reached settlements, two other women have spoken of inappropriate behavior by the host. A former regular guest on his show, Wendy Walsh, told The Times that after she rebuffed an advance from him he didn’t follow through on a verbal offer to secure her a lucrative position at the network. And a former Fox News host named Andrea Tantaros said Mr. O’Reilly sexually harassed her in a lawsuit she filed last summer against the network and Mr. Ailes.
Representatives for 21st Century Fox would not discuss specific accusations against Mr. O’Reilly, but in a written statement to The Times the company acknowledged it had addressed the issue with him.
“21st Century Fox takes matters of workplace behavior very seriously,” the statement said. “Notwithstanding the fact that no current or former Fox News employee ever took advantage of the 21st Century Fox hotline to raise a concern about Bill O’Reilly, even anonymously, we have looked into these matters over the last few months and discussed them with Mr. O’Reilly. While he denies the merits of these claims, Mr. O’Reilly has resolved those he regarded as his personal responsibility. Mr. O’Reilly is fully committed to supporting our efforts to improve the environment for all our employees at Fox News.”
According to legal experts, companies occasionally settle disputes that they believe have little merit because it is less risky than taking the matters to trial, which can be costly and create a string of embarrassing headlines.

The revelations about Mr. O’Reilly, 67, come after sexual harassment accusations against Mr. Ailes led to an internal investigation that found women at Fox News faced harassment. Current and former Fox News employees told The Times that they feared making complaints to network executives or the human resources department.

Mr. Ailes, who has denied the allegations against him, received $40 million as part of his exit package. The company has reached settlements with at least six women who accused Mr. Ailes of sexual harassment, according to a person briefed on the agreements.
Of course, since the sex allegations date back years, it is plausible that O'Reilly had some inkling that they were going to be again be highlighted, and hence the trip to the Vatican might have been planned in anticipation. 

Whether or not so, FOX has long given this blogger the impression of a workplace where women's looks and sex appeal were hardly minor factors, just going by the way their female talking heads are presented, in their manner of dress, as well as show of legs.


From the wikipedia artcile about Bill O Reilly:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_O'Reilly_%28political_commentator%29

Sexual harassment lawsuits

On October 13, 2004, O'Reilly sued Andrea Mackris, a former producer for The O'Reilly Factor, alleging extortion. O'Reilly claimed that Mackris had threatened a lawsuit unless he paid her more than $60 million. Later the same day, Mackris sued O'Reilly for sexual harassment, seeking $60 million in damages.[118] Her complaint alleged that in phone conversations, O'Reilly had "advised her to use a vibrator and told her about sexual fantasies involving her",[119] and an allegation that he threatened that if she reported his behavior, "Roger Ailes... will go after you... Ailes operates behind the scenes, strategizes, and makes things happen so that one day BAM! The person gets what's coming to them but never sees it coming." On October 15, 2004, Fox sought judicial permission to fire Mackris, but she was never dismissed. On October 19, 2004, Mackris filed an amended complaint seeking further damages for illegal retaliatory actions by O'Reilly, Fox News, and the News Corporation-owned newspaper the New York Post.[120] On October 28, 2004, O'Reilly and Mackris reached an out-of-court settlement in which Mackris dropped her sexual-assault suit against O'Reilly, and O'Reilly dropped his extortion claim against Mackris. The terms of the agreement are confidential,[121] but in 2017 The New York Times reported the settlement to be around $9 million.[13]

After Ailes was the subject of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former Fox News coworker Gretchen Carlson, O'Reilly said in July 2016 that Ailes was a "target" as a "famous, powerful or wealthy person" and called him the "best boss I ever had."[122] After Ailes was fired and the network settled the lawsuit with Carlson, O'Reilly declined to comment further, saying that "for once in my life, I’m going to keep my big mouth shut."[123]

Shortly after Ailes was fired, Fox News settled a sexual harassment claim against O'Reilly with former Fox host Juliet Huddy. Huddy alleged that O'Reilly pursued a romantic relationship with her, made lewd remarks, including a telephone call during which he appeared to be masturbating, and tried to have her fired when she rejected his advances. Legal fees in this case were settled and paid for by Fox News.[124] The New York Times reported the settlement to to have been worth $1.6 million.[13]
In August 2016, former Fox host Andrea Tantaros filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News, claiming that O'Reilly made sexually suggestive comments to her.[125]

In April 2017, The New York Times reported that O'Reilly and Fox News had settled five lawsuits against O'Reilly dating back to 2002. Previously, only the settlements to Mackris and Huddy were publicly reported; The Times reported that Fox hosts Rebecca Diamond and Laurie Dhue settled sexual harassment lawsuits in 2011 and 2016 respectively and junior producer Rachel Witlieb Bernstein settled with Fox in 2002 after accusing O'Reilly of verbal abuse. The amount paid to the women filing the complaints was estimated at $13 million. The Times also reported a claim by former O'Reilly Factor guest Wendy Walsh, who declined an offer from O'Reilly to go to his hotel suite and was subsequently denied a job as a Fox News contributor.[13] Walsh appeared on The O'Reilly Factor for a few months after the hotel incident, and at one point asked producers for more airtime on the show.[126]

After Walsh's complaint, 21st Century Fox hired the law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison to conduct an investigation into at least that allegation; that firm also conducted an investigation into the allegations against Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, which led to his ouster from Fox.[127]

After the five settlements were reported, the O'Reilly Factor lost more than half its advertisers within a week;[128] almost 60 companies withdrew their television advertising from the show[129] amid a growing backlash against O'Reilly.[130][131] On April 11, 2017, O'Reilly announced he would take a two-week vacation and would return to the program on April 24; he normally takes a vacation around Easter.[132] On April 19, 2017, Fox News announced that O'Reilly would not be returning to the network.[133][134]
I long found FOX at times to be somewhat entertaining.   Splashy colors; attractive sets; and numerous physically attractive women, presenting the news from the perspective of the political "right", as the counterpart to news channel rivals as CNN and MSNBC which present news from the perspective of the "left".  All as part of the highly controlled "left" - 'right" (re, in the U.S.A. Democrat and Republican Party) political spectrum.

FOX is sometimes good insofar as some of its exposes, such as that concerning one of the creators of ObamaCare, ignored by the slavishly pro Democrat Party establishment media.   As such, I have found FOX to be more informative when it is a Democrat President in the White House, as I found MSNBC during the preceding Republican Bush Administrations, due to my skepticism of the ruling class leading me to prefer the "opposition" stance against the incumbent.

FOX is also horribly repetitious in so far as focusing too much on whatever story they were promoting while failing to report others.  Such is to be expected from an opposition that is so controlled, to keep people so focused so they are distracted from the things that indicate how BOTH the main parties have betrayed the public in favor of the ruling class.  Such as in failing to report upon legislation regarding say financial interests, as banking, let alone the food and drug supply.

Most of FOX's talking heads I have found to be non-offensive, with the exceptions being the more sanctimonious ones where and when they speak blatant lies.

Particularly such when presenting the cherished dogmas of the Powers That Be, on issues that I am more well versed in.  In particular, the so called "war on drugs".

Almost everything written about the "war on drugs" presents it as something started by the 37th U.S. President Richard Nixon during the early 1970s.  Rather he merely presided over its U.S. re-codification, with the 1970 U.S. Controlled Substances Act, enacted in reaction to the 1969 U.S. Supreme Court Leary case.  That case had declared as unconstitutional the basis of the previous U.S. drug prohibition "laws" dating back to the initial prohibition acts of 1937 and 1914 respectively regarding "Marihuana" and "Narcotics" (Opium, Coca leaves and their derivatives), the U.S. Congress power to impose taxes, 
for violating the Constitution's 5th amendment guarantee against self incrimination. 

While much attention has been given to Nixon's favoring the drug war as a tool to oppress ethnic minorities and dissidents, its earlier adaptation reflected an agenda of drug market control protecting key agricultural commodities (particularly Tobacco) from competitors (particularly Coca Leaf), and in establishing a protected market for synthetic (patentable) monopoly medicines (pharmaceuticals) as reflected by the 1906 U.S. Food and Drugs Act and its subsequent enforcement and amending.  For more on this, see:

http://freedomofmedicineanddiet.blogspot.com/2017/02/defeating-drug-war-requires-better.html

http://freedomofmedicineanddiet.blogspot.com/2016/02/points-about-progressive-era-war-of.html

http://freedomofmedicineanddiet.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-evil-prohibition-to-promote.html

O'Reilly has long acted as Rome's errand boy for promoting this modern day incarnation of the Inquisition known as the drug war.

Others at FOX that I have noted as more sticking out for this Inquisition incarnation over time have been Monica Crowley, Sean Hannity, and more recently, the figure taking over O'Reilly's evening time slot, Tucker Carlson.

I have observed Carlson joining this sorry category with his promotion of the "opioid epidemic" fake news demonifying people's pharmaceutical pain pills while giving a free pass to the dangers of mixing such with drugs as Valium, and of cutting off people's legal supplies so they turn to contraband  that is increasingly laced with far more potent synthetic opiates as fentanyl and catafentanyl.

It is s if Tucker Carlson has been prepped to replace the most traditionally egregious FOX talking head.

Various sources, such as this, and this, are reporting that the Vatican intends to issue a postage stamp sometime in 2017 commemorating the500th Anniversary of Martin Luther's release of his 95 Thesis, an event credited with sparking the modern Protestant Reformation.

No date nor design has been publically released.

The Vatican postal site 2017 program includes a listing for " Riforma protestante, nel quinto centenario" [Protestant Reformation in the fifth centenary]

The design shown above, according to the accompanying link is said to be a "joke", though with no information upon its source.

It is probably produced by a Vatican loyal source, indicative of what they would really like to issue.

excerpt-

Avdiivka (Ukraine) (AFP) - Ukrainian forces and Russian-backed rebels were on Tuesday locked in fighting for a third straight day at a flashpoint town that left thousands shivering without power and sparked renewed EU concern about security in its backyard.

The industrial hub of Avdiivka came under an unexpected assault Sunday from insurgents seeking to wrest back territory controlled by Kiev during the nearly three-year war.

The clashes have claimed the lives of at least 13 civilians and fighters on both sides since Sunday -- the worst outburst of violence since the two sides agreed a new truce on December 23.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko underscored the urgency of the situation by cutting short a visit to Berlin on Monday and convened an emergency meeting of his National Security and Defence Council.
Poroshenko is worried that Donald Trump's rise to the US presidency and praise for Russia's Vladimir Putin may add fuel to a conflict that began shortly after Ukraine's 2014 ouster of its Moscow-backed leader and tilt toward the West.

Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters the Kremlin was "extremely worried" but had "reliable information" that renegade units of pro-Kiev fighters were in fact responsible for the initial attacks. ...

excerpt-

In January, a US Army brigade of nearly 3,500 troops and 2,700 pieces of heavy equipment arrived in Poland in the largest deployments of US troops and armor to that country

The brigade came with a simple mission — integrate with the Polish army and deter Russia on all fronts
"Russian aggression takes many forms," Gen. Ben Hodges, commander of the US Army in Europe, told NBC News.

"Cyber, misinformation, threatening other countries, Russian snap exercises. We're serious — this is not just a training exercise. It's to demonstrate a strategic message that you cannot violate the sovereignty of members of NATO ... Moscow will get the message — I'm confident of it. "
The combine US and Polish forces immediately started training with tanks, artillery, and helicopters in an overt show of force.
Meanwhile, US soldiers in Lithuania had just finished a similar exercise. Estonia, Latvia, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary will all also see US troops deployed on a rotational basis.
But the US assurance to vulnerable NATO states in the Baltics comes after a years-long Russian military buildup. Current and former US generals have expressed doubts about NATO's ability to deter or stop an outright attack from Russia, and a report from the think tank RAND Corp predicts that Russia could seize control of the Baltic States within 36 hours of a blitz-like invasion.  ...
... For now, US forces will train, eat, and sleep alongside their European allies, meaning that a Russian attack of any sort on the Baltics will draw an immediate reaction from the US.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will meet Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko Monday after U.S. President Donald Trump’s frenetic day of phone calls that included herself and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Merkel, whose country brokered the maligned ceasefire between Moscow and Kiev in eastern Ukraine, known as the Minsk agreement, is fast becoming the Western leader most supportive of Ukraine’s struggle to integrate into Europe.

Since the start of the conflict in 2014, governments previously hawkish toward Russia, notably the U.S. under Barack Obama, have been replaced by leaders such as Trump implementing a softer stance. The approach within Europe itself is also threatening to splinter after rising French electoral candidate Francois Fillon described sanctions against the Kremlin as "pointless," Reuters reported.
Ukraine’s Poroshenko will visit Berlin to meet with Merkel as well as the President of the Bundestag Norbert Lammert and Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel, according to Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin.

Speaking to one of Ukraine’s major Russian-language broadcaster’s Inter, Klimkin said that during the visit Monday, the two leaders would discuss a broad agenda of issues.

"We had an agreement in early February to discuss a number of important issues particularly how to make Russia fulfill Minsk agreements, the security situation in Donbas, what can we do to free captives and how we can take make use of the Normandy format most effectively today," he said referring to the German-French brokered ceasefire.
Klimkin added that Ukraine and Germany were not only “political partners but friends” and that Kiev would seek German help in implementing anti-corruption reforms.
The Ukrainian minister also dismissed the possibility that Western sanctions on Russia would be dropped without implementation of the ceasefire, despite the Trump administration’s repeated suggestions that the U.S. may lift its sanctions to secure a Russian concession on another issue.
“We are going around in circles again on this issue,” Klimkin said, telling his interviewer the Ukrainian vision was simple. “First we discuss how we define the steps of the implementation of the Minsk (ceasefire) agreements. Then we get guarantees from Russia's fulfillment of the Minsk agreements.”
So far the ceasefire deal, agreed in Minsk, Belarus, has been hard to implement due to a fundamental disagreement about the nature of the Russian-backed forces in eastern Ukraine. Kiev treats them as de facto Russian troops, having captured soldiers not only equipped with Russian military issue weaponry, but also found to be either active or past servicemen.

However, Russia has continued to argue that the militant forces near the Russian border that have kept Ukraine’s vast armed forces at bay for almost three years are local independence fighters, who receive no military support from Moscow.

Jack Chick Dies October 23, 2016




http://www.chick.com/information/Jack-Chick/
 
Our beloved brother, Jack Chick, is now with the Lord.

Jack Chick passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday evening, October 23, 2016. He was 92.
We at Chick Publications all loved Jack.

We are like a family, and he was our closest relative. He loved every one of us, and we regularly got to tell him our appreciation and love for him. We got to see what kind of person he was on a daily basis —some people for over 45 years! It was very important for us to be with him before he made his final journey.
Unlike the king in the Chick tract The Fool, Jack had made every preparation for his eternal future. So we visited him to pray, to tell him we loved him, and to bless him on his way to his eternal reward.

But so many others have not gotten that opportunity, either to see what kind of person Jack was or testify how Chick tracts and Jack Chick affected them personally. We want to give you that opportunity.

We would appreciate any comments or testimonies you would like to share with us. To do so, please visit our facebook page or email u

KJ Only-ism Is Un-Wise - Jesus Partisans Balkans



http://jesus-partisans-balkans.blogspot.com/2016/10/king-james-only-ism-is-not-wise.html

King James Only-ism is not wise

While the King James Bible is a literary masterpiece and a milestone in the history of biblical translation, and while it was the spiritual bread and butter of early modern English christianity, I have to "tell it like it is", its language is lamentably outdated and not accessible to modern English speakers, not to speak of non-native speakers. I can compose a list of several hundred words (many of which latinisms or old English artefacts) which even natural literature-savvy speakers(readers) would need to process through a large dictionary to understand.

I am in no way endorsing any other English translation as superior, most others are based on faulty texts,but works like the Modern English Version, the Greene KJB and even the "satanic" NKJV have their merits.

I cannot help but wonder if the KJB only movement is a brainchild of the jesuits with the purpose of

1 Keeping honest and zealous christians in ignorance
2 giving baptists a cultic status among the rest of christianity.
3 preventing translation work from the TR for missionaries, who feel pressed to follow the KJB blindly

It is in little different than the "latin vulgate only" movement within traditionalist catholicism, which actually was the prevalent sentiment, which had dogmatic weight from the middle age through Trent, up to vatican II and was only interrupted by unknown good men and women and the reformers, who rendered the scriptures in the common/vulgar language (most of it language you could hear around town)

With the knowledge of Greek and Hebrew we have in the 21th century it is a shame nobody has taken up the task to prepare a translation, which is readable, comprehensible and applicable in day-to-day life. Or perhaps they have, only to be disregarded by the "enlightened" fundamental independent baptists, who care little for anything outside their dogmas.

October 2016 Alfred E. Smith Dinner Features Trump and Hillary Clinton

Held in New York since 1945, this annual event since 1960 features the Democrat and Republican candidates for U.S. Presidents in election years.

The 71st such annual event, just held in October 2016, featured U.S. President candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump flanking Archbishop Dolan, as a symbolic representation of how the Roman Catholic Church plays both sides of the mainstream political aisle.

Arturo Sosa Abascal S.J. Friday October 15, 2016 Homily

Speech given by the newly elected Jesuit Superior Genera at the Gesu



Entire [here published] text of the homily of Fr. Arturo Sosa, SJ, on the occasion of celebrating and giving thanks for his election as Superior General of the Society of Jesus. Roma, Chiesa del Gesù, 15/10/2016

Dearest Brothers, A few days ago, in this very Church of the Gesù, where the remains of St. Ignatius and Pedro Arrupe are laid to rest, Fr. Bruno Cadorè invited us to have the audacity of the improbable as the distinctive stance of persons of faith, who seek to bear witness to such faith in the complex reality of human life. He invited us to leave behind our fear and to row out into the deep, as a kind of attitude for being at once creative and faithful during the General Congregation.

Certainly, the audacity that we need in order to be servants of the mission of Christ Jesus can flow only from faith. For this reason, our gaze is directed first of all to God, since you have only one Father, and He is in heaven , as the passage from the Gospel which we have just heard reminds us. And as the Formula of the Institute reminds us at paragraph no .1: “Let (the Jesuit) have before his eyes, as long as he lives, before anything else, God, and then the form of this his Institute.” In fact, it is the whole heart that we wish to have in tune with the Merciful Father, the God that is only Love, our Principle and Foundation – the heart of each of us and also the heart of the body of the Society.

If our faith is like that of Mary, Jesus’ own mother and the Mother of the Society of Jesus, our audacity can go even further and seek not only the improbable, but the impossible, because nothing is impossible for God , as the Archangel Gabriel proclaims in the scene of the Annunciation (Luke 1:37). It is the same faith held by St. Teresa of Avila, or St. Teresa of Jesus, whose memorial we celebrate today. She too, without fear, entrusted herself to the Lord in order to undertake the improbable and the impossible.

Let us ask, therefore, for this faith from the Lord, so that we, as the Society of Jesus, can also make our own the words of Mary in her response to the extraordinary call that she received: “Behold the servant of the Lord: Be it done to me according to your word.” Like Ignatius and the First Companions, like so many Jesuit brothers who have fought and who fight today under the banner of the cross, in service only to the Lord and to his Church, we too desire to contribute to that which today seems impossible: a humanity reconciled in justice, that dwells peacefully in a well -­‐ cared -­‐ for common home, where there is a place for all, since we recognize each other as brothers and sisters, as sons and daughters of the same and only Father.

For this reason, we reaffirm even today the conviction of Ignatius as he wrote the Constitutions: “ Since the Society of Jesus was not instituted by human means, it is not through them that it can be preserved and increased, but with the all -­‐ powerful hand of Christ, our God and Lord ; in Him alone must our hope be placed.”

With our hope placed in God and in God alone the General Congregation will proceed with its deliberations and it will contribute to its duty to preserve and grow this whole body ( Const. 719).

The preservation and growth of the body of the Society is tightly bound to the depth o f the spiritual life of each of its members and of the communities in which we share life and mission with our companions. At the same time, it is necessary to have an extraordinary intellectual depth in order to think creatively about the ways in which our service to the mission of Christ Jesus can be more effective, in the creative tension of the Ignatian magis. To think about ways of deeply understanding the unique moment of human history in which we are living, and to contribute to the search f or alternatives for overcoming poverty, inequality, and oppression. To think so that we never cease posing pertinent theological questions, and so that we continue to deepen our understanding of the faith that we ask the Lord to increase in ourselves.

We are not alone. As companions of Jesus we too want to follow the journey of the incarnation, to identify ourselves with the human beings that suffer the consequences of injustice. The Society of Jesus can develop only in collaboration with others, only if it becomes the least Society that collaborates. Let us be attentive to the linguistic pitfalls here. We want to increase collaboration, not just to seek that others collaborate with us, with our own works, only because we don’t want to lose the prestige o f the position of who has the last word. We want to collaborate generously with others, inside and outside of the Church, in the awareness, which comes from the experience of God, of being called to the mission of Christ Jesus, which doesn’t belong to us exclusively, but whom we share with so many men and women who are consecrated to the service of others.

In the journey of collaboration, with the grace of God, we will also find new companions to increase the number, always much too small no matter how great, of collaborators who, along with the others, are invited to be part of this body. There is hardly any doubt about the need to increase our prayer and our work for vocations to the Society, and to continue the complex commitment to provide the formation that makes of them true Jesuits, members of this multicultural body that is called to testify to the richness of interculturalism as the face of humanity, created in the image and likeness of God.

Let us, therefore , today make our own the words of the Apostle Paul: may the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like -­‐ minded one toward the other according to the example of Christ Jesus, so that you may give glory to the God and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ with one heart and one voice. (Rm. 15 :5) In the Church of the Gesù in R
 As reported by the Jesuit General Convocation 36 site:
 http://gc36.org/mass-thanksgiving-presided-new-general/

The afternoon of Friday, October 14, after the election, the congregation members were able to take a well deserved break. They met this morning at the Gesù Church for the second time in two weeks. They had the joy to be around their new Superior General, Father Arturo Sosa, who therefore had the opportunity, in his homily, to offer for the first time a spiritual message inspired by the Holy Scripture.
The first reading was taken from the wisdom tradition, the book of Sirach. It emphasized how the search for wisdom provides the intelligence and opens the way for just decisions. Whoever has this wisdom coming from the Lord will spread it to all nations. Psalm 88 reminded that the Lord is pleased by the fidelity of his servant. An excerpt from the letter of St. Paul to the Christians of Rome exhorted them to avoid causing scandal and division, but mainly to show perseverance and hope by doing everything for the good of their neighbour. In the Gospel of St. Mark, Jesus invited his disciples to be watchful at all times.
In his homily, the new Superior General first recalled that a few days earlier, at the opening of the General Congregation, the Master of the Dominicans had invited the Jesuits to the audacity of the improbable, something that characterizes a person of faith. Fr. Sosa was even more daring: referring to Mary, he opened the way to the audacity not only of the ‘improbable’ but also of the ‘impossible’, because “Nothing is impossible for God”, had said the angel Gabriel.

The General added: “We ask the Lord for that kind of faith, because we can make it our own, as Society of Jesus, the faith expressed in Mary’s words in response to receiving the extraordinary appeal: ‘Behold the handmaid of the Lord, all be done according to thy words.’ As Ignatius and his first companions, like so many brothers who fought and lived under the banner of the cross in the service of the Lord and his Church, we also want to contribute to what seems impossible today: a humanity reconciled in justice, living in peace in a common house well kept, where there is room for everyone because we recognize that we are siblings, son and daughters of the same and unique Father.”

Father General then stressed the fact that we are not alone to accomplish this task; we do it in collaboration. Not only that of collaborators in our works, but by making ourselves collaborators of people, inside and outside of the Church, who are involved in a mission that is not ours exclusively, a mission we share with many men and women dedicated to the service of others.
