This was SO funny. The video with pedestrian reactions was the best.

I was in Shanghai for one week about 6 years ago, and I must say I felt sorry for the people who lived in that city. There was a constant haze that hung in the air for 6 or the 7 days that I was there. I saw it as a major challenge posed by the rapid industrialisation of the country.

I salute this young man for soldiering on, and his parents (3 hrs of bandaging him up every morning!) and his friends who hang out with him. Much better result than that poor woman who went to Switzerland to commit suicide because at 85 she was losing her looks.

If the growth of atheism continues, this can only be the inevitable direction that more and more people will take. How glorious is the cross of Christ.

For anyone interested, there are also groups in Australia. The largest group is in Sydney but there are others in Brisbane and Melbourne. We (Sydney) have a chaplain and meet once a month. I personally have found the group of enormous benefit in my life and would encourage others to check it out. Andy.

#2272     Real-Life Woman Behind 'Philomena' Gets an Audience With Pope Francis

The Catholic League has put up interesting 'after math' info about this movie-Firstly, that the 'Church' did not force Phenomena to abandon her baby- it was the norm 50-60 years ago for a 'girl in trouble' to give up the baby for adoption, wherever she stayed while pregnant.
Secondly, there was no where else for this girl to go, because her own family would have tossed her out-and, why isn't there any attention put on the boyfriend who disappeared after she got pregnant? The nuns were the only ones who would help these girls.
There needs to be a lot more research into this story, because , like the 'Magdalene' controversy, which came out to be fabricated by the woman who claimed to be abused by the nuns at the girls reform school, and claimed she was raped by a priest, it all turned to be a lie-only no one wants to hear THAT!

#2271     Where is the Biblical Origin of the Catholic Teaching that Peter was the First Pope?

There is a prefigurement of the papacy in the OT.
Go to Is 22:19-23 and see that there is a second-in-charge to the king. The role of “master of the palace,” literally “the one over the house” (Heb. ‘asher ‘al-habayith), was the Number Two position of authority after the King (observe the dynamic in 1 Kings 18:1-5, for example). The office was first established by Solomon (1 Kings 4:6). Apparently, the badge of his office was the wearing of the key to the palace on the shoulder (Isa 22:22). The steward controlled access to the king, either by unlocking or locking the palace doors to those who sought the king’s presence.
Now go to Mt 16:13-20 and see the similarities.
Your Bible footnotes will even make the connection, both in Protestant and Catholic bibles! Peter (and by succession, the pope) has the keys and is the vicar of Christ.

I had a friend ask me this question several yrs ago. Couldn't understand how I could pray to Mary. Said She couldn't do any thing for me. I told her she calls her friends and a prayer group when in need of Gods help. I told her I can't call Mary on the phone or text Her. So I pray and ask Her to ask Jesus. That was the logical answer.

#2268     Too Few People - New Report Confirms Decline in Fertility

Moussa Taouk wrote at 8:49am on February 4th 2014
In the Early Middle Ages in Europe, population decline was a major factor in the collapse of the Roman Empire. The decline was mainly due to decreased crop production (due to a cooling in global temperature... which seemed like a worse option than global warming!) and various diseases. These things contributed to a weakened state and paved the way for the successful barbarian invasions.

Empires rise and fall on demography. It will be interesting and also (and also perhaps scary) to see what the world will look like in 50 years' time. Less and less taxes to support an ageing population, less demand on housing, less money for infrastructure etc. I suspect euthanasia will be the easy solution to the burden of looking after the elderly.
