John Paul II has died.

Postby real_lord » Sat Apr 02, 2005 8:34 pm

John Paul II has just died. Polish Internet is black and everyone
stopped breathing for some moments.
Now we don't exist internationally.
Polish President is still silent (this stupid liar whom I hate!):(((
Probably cannot find words what to say again. Or unsober once again.
What more? Some atheists can say: "Show is over" but catholics don't care about such statements. I am so happy I could be in Roma in year 2000 and participate in World Youth Meeting in this meaningful year.
Now we don't have Polish Pope in Roma any longer.
Damn thing! :(

Who will be next?

Good question. All candidates who are proposed now are above 70 years old!!! They are old so the more they should pay attention on young people. Next Youth Meeting will be in Koln(Germany). Last was in Canada ( I didn't participate - lack of money - first thing and second - I wasn't interested in spending 2 weeks in ...don't remember - one big city there). Rome is Rome - history, tradition, relics and Canada ...all big cities there must look the same as it seemed to me. All these airplanes - awful. Interesting what will be this year - I am not so young but Koln is close to me. Besides a big cathedral there.
My brother was working there two years ago but too weak to be enchanted with visiting any Cathedral. When comming back he only stated:
- F...k thing to be a catholic in Germany! Do you know how much more you must pay for admitting this fact when filling forms there?!? Am I a prince or who to pay such taxes for being a catholic!
As you can see culture has many faces around the world.
Today we have a Sunday of God's Mercy upon people.
One Polish saint nun was proclaiming this fest some time ago (Faustyna Kowalska was her name) and Polish Pope died yesterday. Maybe anyone is interested? She died at 33 because of tuberculosis. Some people still die because of this awful disease. I think that it's good to watch so many news about good death because of Pope's death. I mean - no violence, atrocious crimes, senseless bloodshed - just good man went into eternity. Cause we catholics believe people live for ever thanls to Jesus Christ. I only wonder why so little info about the attempt of killing our Pope by terrorists many years earlier.
Besides - maybe you read his state was hopeless and he suffered very much that's why - like Vatican's doctors stated - noone tried to make his suffering longer when unecessary.
BUT Pope was 84, lot of health problems for a long time, blood infection was unable to control. A matter of making his life longer with a day, two days.
In case of Terri - she could live for ten years more still as it seems to me cause as I read 2-4 years ago first trials of disconnecting her from her feeding tube (for 5 days then).
So remember - beware of Jews in your US who will swallow you one day as a strong animal kills a weak one. And have a fear
about what's God's Mercy because once I was reading a book when Hitler time and again was considering himself "Man of God's Mercy" (in his speeches) and then I started to be scared of...God's Mercy (whatever it means).
Really.
CHEERS.

Didn't Jesus say love thy neighbors? Aren't you supposed to love everyone no matter who they are and what they do with their lives? :roll: Now I understand why people say Jesus died for our sins. Too much hatred, bitterness, sarcasm in your posts which nobody asks for it. :roll: :roll: :roll:

your post here,

Postby real_lord » Tue Apr 05, 2005 6:17 pm

should be moved cause it is irrelevant to the topic of this forum - first thing. But you have your Vietnam lobby here so I understand some things are impossible to overcome for you.
Jesus - dear simply, said lots of things. Some of them are really beautiful, others seem to sound rather hellish. All in all I think common sense should win its place in life when God's Mercy over this world is too little. And Jews have this common sense.
But not only them. Can you imagine any Jew visiting any therapist?!? Personally, I cannot! But still can see one Jew read with anger because of money I don't want to pay to him cause it seems to me illegal. I don't know if he needed any therapy because of me and truly speaking not too much I care cause he doesn't seem to starve because of my person.
But resuming the main thread, all in all I think, the most probably a new Pope will be Italian. Italians are close to Vatican and they will bring the best money there. Our Pope showed the way to the Catholic Church which it should follow so I think now money will make the rest.
Vatican is a normal country like Poland, Vietnam or US. It keeps or doesn't keep normal diplomatic relationships with this or that country. Money, money, money - like everywhere and many other things. Of course lots of bloodshed in catholic church but isn't it amazing we still last?!? And take a Bible - about paradise on Earth you can read there? I can see there only fights, bloodshed and many others things. Any word about racism there. That could be interesting for scholars to find roots of this phenomena. Surely - Bible didn't start it. Very good side of this book, probably:)))
Bye, buy:)))

Real_lord (and others), if you have comments on others' posts or moderators' work, please let us know via PM or you can report to the admin.

To your complaining suggest to remove Lennye's latest post, this is my point: What she wrote was not directly related to the death of John Paul II, but all the discuss around this affair, like Christian, Polish, Vatican, who should be the next Pope, last Popes ... etc are okay unless you all turn to a new track (Eg: all of you post about Christian here).

Best regards,
