    Advice from Pope Francis

    I thought this was pretty good, probably my favorite thing hes written so far:
    . A Gentle Reminder From Pope FrancisThis life will go by fast.Don't fight with people, don't criticize your body so much, don't complain so much. Don't lose sleep over your bills. Look for the person that makes you happy. If you make a mistake, let it go and keep seeking your happiness.Never stop being a good parent. Don't worry so much about buying luxuries and comforts for your home, and don't kill yourself trying to leave an inheritance for your family. Those benefits should be earned by each person, so don't dedicate yourself to accumulating money.Enjoy, travel, enjoy your journeys, see new places, give yourself the pleasures you deserve. Allow dogs to get closer. Don't put away the fine glassware. Utilize the new dinnerware; don't save your favorite perfume, use it to go out with yourself; wear out your favorite sport shoes; repeat your favorite clothes.So what? That's not bad. Why not now? Why not pray now instead of waiting until before you sleep? Why not call now? Why not forgive now? We wait so long for Christmas; for Friday; for Reunions; for another year; for when I have money; for love to come; when everything is perfect...look...Everything perfect doesn't exist. Human beings can't accomplish this because it simply was not intended to be completed here. Here is an opportunity to learn.So take this challenge that is life and do it now...love more, forgive more, embrace more, love more intensely and leave the rest in God's hands. Amen.

    The first thing the Catholic Vatican can do is return all the stolen property taken away during the Hyksos' revolutions, that a war was declared against Egypt back then, as that Hyksos Dynasty shall fall upon its own leper colony.

    Which version of the Bible do you believe in, that when the rules of the Lord Yeshua Christ were to love God above all things, and to love thy neighbor as thyself, and yet they lied to cover up what they did to the Egyptian priests.

    Isaiah 19:19, an altar to the LORD, */\, the reasons why the Lord was called out of Egypt, as he was to learn there what he knew to be the truest religion the planet had as he had visited the Earth before he died for all of their crosses.

    The obelisks of the world, the center of the Earth, as to then, everything taken out of Egypt, as to try to break apart the same Kingdom Ptah had visited upon, that where do they think those colors of Christmas bear to make a witness?

    The 25th verse of Isaiah 19 centuries later as to what was found there lying buried under what sand storm could bring Akhenaten back to life to pursue further to still the destruction of the same Earth God made for in Heaven it was.

    The world system shall fall upon the same wages of death it has administered upon since Caligula, and that what the same pits of destiny they had wished for a world found without a God, to believe for because they falsified facts.

    A little here, a little there, a pinch of salt to boil the H20 hot enough to make the lava flow against all gain of what ancient Egypt once had, as of its very own there were the direct descendants of those who had escaped God sank Atlantis.

    Sitnalta rieht depacse...sow the ice caps melted, and they wished they had never fished.

    HoruSobeKarmArmanaTell what a lack of love for God's Animal Kingdom has omitted:

    A. God's paradise B. Eden C. Corn can be grown without doubt, as those are governed:

    1. By God's laws as he ordered; 2. By loving the land; 3. God's laws must be at obeyed:

    Sobek owns the alligators as the crocodiles as when God made them they by he created;

    The angels of Heaven he meant as he made man in his image, as those same gods aided;

    Have no other gods before him, that does not make them above him, just that is ground;

    Genesis chapter 1 the evening to the morning when worship of him is as he first entered;

    God always was, always will be, but became lonely after he made himself the same God;

    The Animal Kingdom most precious thing that goes without a notice how he has grieved;

    Each one is his and how dare people think they may escape those judgments of their God!

    Animals were before man was, and his name is above all names, so he has been slandered;

    'For the love of money is the root of all evil' and the tree of life cannot be money laundered;

    The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink or any such thing but the rivers turned to blood;

    What Kingdom you will have is what you venture to so pay attention to Isaiah 66:3, Isaiah 1.

    While it's true that Francis lives a very sheltered, privileged life now, he hasn't always done so. He is very familiar with how "the other half" lives. Even so, this particular reflection seems to be addressed primarily to folks who do have at least some degree of physical and financial comfort...talking about "fine glassware", perfume and sport shoes. Obviously, not all Catholics are poor, and Francis is someone who understands that those who are relatively well off need the Church's comforts and instruction as much as anyone does.

    If I had to sum up the above message in one phrase, it would be something that I heard many years ago: "Happiness is not a destination, but a way of traveling."
    "It is a foolish man who believes that he possesses all of the answers unless he is absolutely certain that he has heard all of the questions."

    I miss JP2. If I remember correctly, Pope Francis has eschewed the trappings of his office and lives in an apartment attached to the Vatican.
