You need to know and understand Christian theology to appreciate the implications of what Pope Francis may be saying.
“Rejoice in the IMMINENT coming of Jesus“ is more than an exhortation to enjoy the celebration of the coming Christmas.
The Second Coming of Jesus is a cornerstone of Christianity.
Christians have been waiting, inordinately patiently, for this Second Coming for over 2,000 years! The Apostles and the early Jesus followers in the Holy Land truly believed that the Second Coming would occur during their lifetime. That was 2,000 years ago.
But, prior to the Second Coming there has to ‘End Times’. That is all part of the accepted sequence. Pope Francis is a big believer in ‘End Times’ and WARNED that it may soon be with us just a YEAR AGO after the terror attacks in Paris. Here is but one reference. Google “Pope Francis Paris end times” for many more.
From my reading the pope is again back on this theme. The question is whether his new concern has to do with the new World order under Trump?

You know, the ‘Christmas’ manger scene. Birth of Jesus. A donkey is often shown as being present. This could be the SAME donkey that the Virgin Mary rode upon on her way to Bethlehem. What is the name of this famous donkey?
Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.
Yesterday’s ‘Think’:“Basis For The Gallon” — there are conflicting theories as to how the Imperial (i.e., the British) gallon got to be what it was — and it was this gallon that came ahead of the U.S. gallon. The explanation that makes most sense is that a gallon is the volume of pure water, at 62°F, weighing 10 pounds (as measured with brass weights). It is easy to see how this could an easy definition to come up with and enforce.
