Hi:)
"benny" isn't Polish. he is German. but his Polish one year later is really stunning. he has told today 50% of his mass in Polish. isn't it great? I think it is.
how about da Vinci code? is it still talk-of-the-world?
cause Madonna will never stop to be the one- for sure.

hello:)
yes. John Paul II was from Poland. He wrote 10 thousand books probably. Now Benedict XVI won hearts of Polish people cause he speaks Polish language so well. I do hope many Polish people will buy books of John Paul II here. They really should learn something from him. Becasue he was both great pope and man - no doubt but they.... jeeez:(
Nice day Dixie and everyone else.

Postby LadyMacbeth » Sat May 27, 2006 12:22 pm

Yes. Probably I exaggerated. Probably 10 thousand pages of paper he filled with his different texts. As deals books he wrote on his own - maybe 10-30, books he wrote. Then - books with his peeches/prayers/biographies/travels/pictures - 500-1000 different books around the world or maybe much more.
Ok. So many paper...
Have a nice day:)
Now Benedict is somewhere in the middle probably. Soon I will present to you his means of transportation and pictures from his staying in Czestochowa city. He even appeared in window of Archibishop Palace in Cracow yesterday. Total national hystery as I understand.
Nice day:)

are all media so stupid?

Postby LadyMacbeth » Mon May 29, 2006 12:57 pm

it is so embarrassing to me that I have to write this short letter and ask my question that goes: WHY MEDIA ARE SO STUPID TODAY???
Yesterday the pilgrimidge of Pope Benedict XVI to Poland finished. That's truth. Other things written about it are worse than stupid. For example a sentence from POLISH-LANGUAGE(!!!) net-article "(...) of course the main point of Pope Benedict XVI's visit to Poland was Auschitz Birkenau".
Oh my God - how could Auschwitz Birkenau be the main point of 4 day long staying of Pope BXVI in Poland?!?
The truth is he went there on HIS OWN REQUEST. Previously noone even wanted here to make any all-over-the-world manifestation of German Pope going to Auschwitz and apologising for...?!?
And these all Jews - how dissatisfied are they again! Will they ever be satissfied at all? Benedict XVI isn't any Jew at all. His family also had to move from place to place during Nazi times and he had to join Hitlerjugend. Otherwise he could be another victim of Auschwitz. Doth some Germans died there too!
Probably that's what aches these all Jews the most. That catholic Pope is a German - not a Jew - and he is catholic, what must be even worse for Jews.
So in my opinion Cracow was the main point of Benedict XVI visit to Poland and places connected with birth and life of John Paul II. He spent almost 3 days in Cracow and 2 hours in Auschitz.
this world is more than insane I am afraid. But I hope to be in my right senses at this moment of writing this letter.
Nice day:)

Lady, dear! Why should the jews be involved in official catholic church! I guess their dissastisfaction has nothing common with their not participation as they are wise to follow their religion!

The day before i watched Schindler's list - and all my present mood is affected now! by the movie and what i've read about those hard timed during the world war second and the sufferings and tortures of jewish people! and your claims seem really weird to me! i see you have prejudices not only against russians but also against jews! I guess today i'll be defending this very nation very hard!

why do non-catholic population have to awe the pope? as still i can't name any of Bene's acts that could turn my attitude to an exremely plesant way... the only thing i liked - he rejected speaking in his own language while staying in Auschitz! sure John Paul II will remain in hearts of only catholics but in the heart of every one who is bothered with problems of the present days! the new pope has to do A LOT to deserve an equal glory!

the point of view depends on...

Postby LadyMacbeth » Mon May 29, 2006 3:03 pm

Hi:)
I think that the point of view depends much on your place of sitting. You live in Moscow. I have about 60 kilometres to Auschwitz. So nothing strange our points of view will ALWAYS different. Money is what makes this world around and my stomach filled. I live where I live. In such place of living like Poland nothing counts in most of cases. When you lose a war you are a loser. That's who are you and nothing more. You can survive in the best case and survive as a loser. Others will come to impose their laws on you. For me it is obvious. So sometimes in the messy cauldron of history such stories can happen that normal people aren't able to imagine them even!
In my own family my own grandfather lost Polish September Campaign in 1939 and was kept by Russians in the end of that year. He was hugry and almost dead when his wife bought him from Russians in the winter of 1940 as a ..German. But soon after recovery he was sent to fight for Hitler. he escaped though and joined Allies. And what in the end? He came back here all in scare cause he was a loser. Communism started in Poland and my grandfather as a supporter of Allies was an enemy here. He was an enemy of a new system and new power.
But he came cause my grandmother didn't want to go to...New Zeland. Who can imagine what could have happened if she had gone to him then? She was told to go to to ship-yeard and join him by ship. She refused. History is check-mate sometimes nad nothing can be done when you lose.

That's a very sad story of yours! I feel sorry for your grandfather's destiny... but i believe he was not the only one crushed by war! and among both the parties were rotten people who did their best trying to enlarge his own capital. The war is not a fairy tail when you clearly see where is bad and where is good - but there are common things that everyone consider as cruel and violenting simple human rights.

I just gave my opinion concerning 'jew's dissatisfaction' - never trying to offend you!

about offending.

Postby LadyMacbeth » Mon May 29, 2006 3:42 pm

don't worry about offending me cause it in fact you don't know how to offend me. Thus I don't think you are be able to offend me at all. Though I learnt lately people around me like offending me too much. The worst offence they did to me lately was when they gave to me a negative assessment of job for whole my really honest work in state institution and the same way they tried to make me unemployed and with no money at all for the rest of my days!!! I think they really wanted to do it. Why they failed (probably)? Cause everyone in his/her right senses can see what an unemployment is here nowadays. At least I am a person who can say loudly about it. Because I have always talked loudly about problems I could see.
So you know - with THEIR negative assessment of MY job they offended me to the highest degree and I would never ever come back to work in THEIR normal ~ even if the court would give such a sentence. In such case I am going to fire myself the very next day and I will never speak a single word to such criminals, normal professional murderers and gang of idiots !!!
Apart from such things it is very hard to offend me. Indeed.

What else can I write here... do you know that infamous gate in Auschwitz with inscription "Arbeit macht frei" that means "Job makes us free" had been bought by Auschwitz prisoners from Russian soldiers for a bottle of spiritus? They wanted to take it and sell it but sold it as a memo.
And do you know that when BXVi's brother was in Poland last time someone stole him his car when he was dining here?
Well... this man in rather old and he doesn't offend anyone but his memo about beautiful singing of one famous Polish boy-choir made me feeling rather sick...
"Arbeit macht frei" - these words will never lose the eternal truth they bring with themselves...
Never better:)

Benny XVI is quite different than John Paul II. He cares about Catholic Church and ecumenism is less important for him. I think he is right at this time. Ecumenism = dialogue. But some people think only about money and power. I mean most people.
All these people of Eastern Church. Polish people criticize Polish priests - they have such a comfortable life here and don't care about usual people. Benny criticized them all during his pilgimidge.
And he was right. Polish priests think mostly about money, cars and pleasant life. It is better not to see them at all!
Many have lovers and don't care about anything - really:(
I have worked in catholic radio for a moment where I met a journalist (catholi priest) and everyone there was saying to me " he is a gay but you shouldn't speak out about it to him. Never do it!".
I think I have never been more disgusted. Really:(((
Oh - maybe once more.
But after 8 years I don't stop asking - who should be blamed for what was on in this particular catholic radio ??? only this priest?
And I still cannot find the answer.

My cousin said a Pope is selected by angels. Okay, let's argue about that! It's been my itch for days and I need someone to scratch it.

There was a rumor he was selected because he was the most vocal one about homosexuality. He criticized their sinful lives. They hoped he would have enough power to put a stop to it. I don't know if this rumor is really true or not, but I really hope he doesn't secretly contact with Bush (Bush who? Bush baby, my love :lol: ) to trying to ban homosexual marriages.

Lennye's "wisdom" - continuation

Postby LadyMacbeth » Thu Jun 15, 2006 9:49 am

Wow - I am even surprised that this topic isn't dead.
But it isn't. Somehow.
You see Lennye - the same is with catholic church. It isn't dead though 2000 years.
Lennye - I am more than stunned that you seem to fight so much about gay marriages when in plot about ALL MARRIAGES you wrote that you...don't believe in marriages at all.
So tell me Lennye - think it over and tell me truly - what are you fighting for in your life and specially on this forum - do you fight for gay rights?
So for me you are more than blind specially when you are to be a nurse?/ a medical woman? in future.
I claim to state that you aren't in your right senses.
Gays will cope with or without you. ES THEY ALWAYS DID!!! This world has never been too normal, I am afraid:(. In the very beginning - the Bible says - God sent A Flood on human race as a prize for their support of gay marriages. Of course I think it is probably simplified version of history but who knos where is the Truth?
Personally I think this world has many more important things to fight for - like diseases, like hunger, like shortage of water and in my opinion some people just exceed some "problems". Interesting - why? Probably they simply live too comfortable to notice many things. And you Lennye - PROBABLY seem to to forget your past declaring here your views about many - so called problems.
But your aren't any exception to the rule what worse. You are, unfortunatelly, the majority of this crazy world. But I am the minority of it and I don't agree with you. I will never accept half of your problems, and one fith of your views. And I want to be left in peace because I have the same right to live as you have. And when you think that I don't have such a right - who gave it to you?
Regards,
LM

In my life I met some gays and I met one woman who ws a lesbian. I knew her bit better. She was MAD to me. Hard to say why. Or I can tell you why. She had a very difficult family life. Her father comitted suicide, her mother gave her to orphanage for some time cause she was too poor to care for her. She was regarded by doctors as a dead fetus before her birth. But her mother decided to deliver this dead fetus.
When I met her she was 27 so she wasn't any dead fetus as you can see.
She was mad about women, about sex. She scarcly thought about anything else. But the same time she flirted with men and decided to marry in future simply in order to be a good daughter and to get a flat in case of a death of her mother.
She was intelligent, educated woman, with many interests - at the first sight - but after knowing her better I found her...unbearable. And veeeeeery lazy in fact.
So today we aren't friends any longer.
Aren't you in real life similar to her?
We two met because we were very hurt. But couldn't have any idea she was hurt by a woman.
I was too blind to see it then. But many people laughted then seeing us together. After some time I managed to see whom I made friends with this time.
And many other things what worse.
Nice day:)

:lol: Oh please, don't try to be all smart because you ain't. When I say I don't believe in marriage, it means it's not for me because I'm not a person who would tie down for someone. However, who knows in the future I would meet a person whom I would give up everything just to be with.

I never said I don't believe in marriage because it's bad idea for everyone. It wouldn't sound like me at all since everything seems to be related to me. I tend to talk about myself and my problems in every cases, okay. :lol: :lol:

Well, it's hard not to be mad about life like her. Look at her life!

And why was she a dead fetus? They detected some disease during the ultrasonography or they saw she would turn out gay, therefore, was considered as dead fetus to uptight Catholics?
