Love this, but


Came across this in Facebook, which gladdens my heart.

which is as it should be. Even (religious) leaders have to be corrected. Then Why do I say But?

The question of Racism persists in my mind.

To me, ALL are God’s children. Among humans, parents may love their children differently. But the All Perfect God would not be doing this. For Him (no gender bias intended) All His children would be Equally Precious. We have to take our cues from that.

All that being so, what irritates me is that I have not seen my papa speaking thus strongly for the Boat people, Other Refugees, Syria, Yemen, …the list is long.

Question: Is the pope more Pro Westeners?

Question: Are not the North Americans and Europians more Pro Westeners?


On pope Francis


Below, an excerpt from Vatican news.

Francis speaks Very well on Migrants; but he is Weak on Ukraine and kirill.

One problem I saw for you and also one of the problems is migration. The problem of migrants is serious because Greece, Cyprus, Malta, Italy, and Spain: these are the closest countries to Africa and the Middle East, and they land here, they arrive here… Migrants must always be welcomed! The problem is that each government has to say how many they can receive regularly to live there. This requires an agreement among the countries of Europe, and not all of them are willing to receive migrants. We forget that Europe was made by migrants, right? But that’s the way things are, but at the very least let us not leave all the burden to these neighbouring countries that are so generous, and Malta is one of them.

Today I was in the migrant reception centre and the things I heard there are terrible, the suffering of these people to get here… and then the camps, there are camps, which are on the Libyan coast, when they are sent back. This seems criminal, doesn’t it? That’s why I think it’s a problem that touches everyone’s heart. Just as Europe is making room so generously for the Ukrainians who knock on the door, so too for the others who come out of the Mediterranean.

This is a point that I finished the visit with, and it touched me so much, because I heard the testimonies, the sufferings and that are more or less like those that I think I told you are in that little book that came out, “Hermanito” in Spanish, “little brother”; and all the Via Crucis [the Way of the Cross] of these people. One of those who spoke today had to pay four times! I ask you to think about this.

Evil Never Rests


Really VERY happy to see You back, my Dear Anna. Very pertinent points, Very well presented.

…Re the catholic church, of late had been SO discouraged by, particularly its Inaction, had thought of giving it up. Lethargy? God’s Will/Grace? Have not done so.

…But at least over the Ukraine issue, pope Francis has redeemed himself.

Perhaps We have to mention that kirill has egg all over his face, and has succeeded in getting the Russian Orthodox church removed from the World council of churches (bbc/cnn news).

…Did see a meme/graphic saying Francis intends to visit Poland at this time. Seem to have lost that pic.


ANNA WALDHERR A Voice Reclaimed, Surviving Child Abuse

Evil eyes Royalty Free Vector Image - VectorStock

The past two years have been eventful for the world.  First, Covid dominated the news. Now, the tragic war in Ukraine (with 115 children killed, 140 injured, an untold number orphaned, and 1.5 million made refugees) is a major focus [1][2].

The following events have, also, taken place. They demonstrate that evil never rests:

  • Incest — Gucci heiress, Alexandra Zarini, has alleged that her stepfather, Joseph Ruffalo, sexually abused her between the ages of six and twenty-two. Her lawsuit has fractured the family, and confirmed that wealth is no safeguard against child abuse [3].
  • Catholic Church Sex Scandal — Retired Pope Benedict XVI (former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger) has asked forgiveness from victims for his mishandling of four Catholic Church sex abuse cases [4]. Ratzinger did not in so many words apologize or accept blame. He continues to deny personal responsibility for the rapes and sodomy perpetuated by his failure to…

Christmas Kudos


Kudos to a culture that gifts (semi) automatic guns to 15 year old’s. That put these things on ‘reduction’ sales for ‘Christmas.’ Kudos to the #pope who will, at the Most, Mumble Feebly on such subjects.

NDTV@ndtvUS School Shooting: The police said that Justin Shilling, who was a student at Oxford High School in the rural town of #Oxford,#Michigan, succumbed to his wounds in the attack. https://www.ndtv.com/world-news/us-sch


One sided, and I would say, Cowardly.


This is addressing ONE side of issues, Francis @Pontifex. Till you write addressing Caste-ism, Racism, errant, lazy and money hungry bishops and priests, Catholic judges, policemen and officials, Regularly n Powerfully, you are failing in your duty.

Just to insert a pic, and to be abreast of things, one of two shopkeepers who were beaten SO badly they died, in police custody, in South India. [ This while Floyd‘s death is SO fresh in our minds. ]



Pope Francis @Pontifex

If you are looking for meaning in life but, not finding one, you throw yourself away with “imitations of love”, such as wealth, career, pleasure, or an addiction, let Jesus look at you, and you will discover you have always been loved.


More to my leader


@Pontifex No words to your comfort-seeking bishops n priests, on their lifestyle n esp their WATERY preaching?
Vatican News @VaticanNews
#PopeFrancis invites Christian disciples to “have no fear” in the face of hostility, persecution, and even the feeling of being abandoned by God. #Angelus

WHY doesn’t the pope speak like this?


Or bishops, for that matter.

Some tweets of mine today:

Extraordinary, and Uplifting. Something I am going to peruse Again and Again. …And from Such a Young person. …Words We expect from world leaders, and me, from my prime leader, the pope @Pontifex.
@Pontifex, Francis, am Absolutely sure Most of yr speeches r written for u, and yr internet (twitter) is handled by a Team. WHERE are your advisers, and WHERE is your courage and will to speak like this? Do you think Christ is going to give you (and the other popes) an easy time?
PS: @Pontifex is the current pope’s twitter handle.



@VaticanNews and @Pontifex. WHY did He tell them to Open their mouths, risk their lives and Spread the Good News? Would not praying the rosary in the comfort of the chapel been enough?

pope francis and children.


தமிழிலும் எழுதப்பட்டிருக்கிறது. …हिंदी में भी है.

I like pope Francis. Really a Good man.

But he Should Stand up, and Speak out, More Powerfully, maybe like #modi of India!

I am thinking of the Mexican children in their hundreds, if not the Thousands, getting seperated from their parents, and held in Cages!

The pope, @Pontifex,has NOT spoken on that.

When (St) Peter was in the wrong, (St) Paul Corrected him. See Acts 15. St. Joan of Arc and St. Teresa of Avila have done the same, to name just two.

When bjp fellows say Whatever modi does is right, We call them ‘Bhakts.’ What about Us? 

The pope, bishops and priest should Speak out More Powerfully against Wrong and Injustice. The Whole Bible is about that.

எனக்கு நமது பாப்பரசர் பிரான்சிசை பிடிக்கும். வீடியோவில், இக்குழந்தையோடும், மற்ற குழந்தைகளோடும் நடந்து கொண்ட விதம், …குழந்தைகளோடு இறைவன் தாமே பேசுகின்றார் என்று சொன்னது, மனதை தொடுகின்றன.

ஆனால், அமெரிக்காவில் மெக்சிகன் பிள்ளைகள் தங்கள் தாய் தந்தையரிடமிருந்து பிரிக்க படுவது, கூண்டுகளில் அடைக்கப்படுவது போன்றவற்றை பற்றி இவர் பேசவில்லை.

பீஜேபியினர் மோடி என்ன செய்தாலும் சரி என்று சொல்லும்போது அவர்களை ‘பக்தர்கள்’ என்கிறோம். …நாம் எவ்வாறு இருக்கிறோம்? 

பேதுரு தவறு செய்த போது, பவுல் அவரை எதிர்த்தார். காண்க அப்போஸ்தலர் பணி 15. புனித Joan of Arc, திருச்சபையில் தவறு நடந்த போது சுட்டி காட்டினார். அவிலாவின் புனித தெரேசம்மாலும் இவ்வாறு செய்திருக்கிறார்.

பாப்பரசர், பிஷப்கள் மற்றும் குருக்கள், தவறுகளுக்கு எதிராக வல்லமையோடு பேச வேண்டும்.

मुझे पोप फ्रांसिस बहुत पसंद हैं. इस वीडियो में इन बच्चों के साथ उनका बर्ताव, यह कहना कि ईश्वर बच्चों से बातें करते हैं, आदि, बहुत प्रिय बात है.

पर अमरीका में मेक्सिकन बच्चों का उनके माता पिता से अलग किया जाना, पिंजरों में बंद किये जाना आदि पर हमारे पोप मौन हैं!

मोदी जो भी करें, कुछ लोग उन सभी चीजों को अच्छा ही कहते हैं, और हम उन्हें ‘भक्त’ कहते हैं. पर हम?

जब पतरस ने गलती की तो पवुल ने उन्हें सही राह दिखाया। देखिये प्रेरितों के कार्य १५. संत Joan of Arc और अविला की संत तेरेसा ने भी ऐसा किया।

हमारे संत पापा, बिशपगण और पुरोहितो को, गलती और अन्याय के विरुद्ध और बल से बोलना चाहिए! यूं कहिये मोदी जैसे!


The Amazing Synod


The Agenda is Fixed. Racism, Paedophile Priests, Caste-ism in India, will NOT be discussed.

And All will be done in Most general terms, so that it does not hurt anybody.

After that, guess what, a few ‘Glasses,’ Sumptuous meals before going back to the luxurious rooms.
