Pope Francis Demeans The EASTERN Cardinal Patriarchs And Denotes That They Are 2nd Class Citizens!

This was WHAT it was all about. Prior to the creation of the 4 IRREGULAR Cardinal Bishops, Cardinal Rai was the MOST senior UNDER-80 cardinal! Base data from “Gcatholic.org” which is run by a friend.

Pope Francis has much in common with Donald Trump. Deep down they both have well-entrenched racist inclinations however much they might try to deny and deflect.

Last week’s uncalled for creation of the 4 HIGHLY ‘irregular’ Cardinal Bishops was proof positive.

The ONLY — and I stress ONLY — rationale for this extraordinary decision by Francis was his FEAR that a NON-WHITE, Eastern Cardinal Patriarch would officiate as the DEAN of the College of Cardinals at the next conclave.

Just like Trump and the Obama ‘birther’ conspiracy. As far as Francis is concerned non-whites are ‘OK’ if they are kept in their place, BUT there is NO WAY that he will have a non-white be in charge of a conclave — and in this case, literally over his dead body.

He might as well have flipped a BIRD at the Eastern, non-white Cardinal Patriarchs. YIKES. Not a nice man. Like Trump, just a bigoted old man who needs to lose a ton of weight.

Am I upset? What do YOU think? I am non-white. I endure abuse, discrimination and persecution daily. Yes, so I will say #METOO!

I had to write this. As a non-white the only power I have is that of the pen.

Pax.

These are the two ‘Nullity of Marriage’, i.e., marriage annulment,
decrees issued by Pope Francis on September 18, 2015.

The REASON for their being TWO is that
one is for the Latin Rites Catholics
and the other is for the Eastern Rites Catholics
— given that EACH has its own set of
Canon Laws.

They are both ‘motu proprio’ (on his own impulse (or initiative))
edicts. As the name says it is an edict enacted by a pope
without seeking ‘blessing’ from a council or synod.
A pope can do that and it is a perfectly valid decree.
It can ONLY be overturned by another pope.

The two ‘motu proprio’ edicts are:
“Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus”
(Latin Rites)
“Mitis et misericors Iesus” 
(Eastern Rites)

As is the case with nearly ALL papal documents
the TITLE is the first few words of the document in Latin.
So the title per se does NOT refer to marriage or nullity!
Instead the title in each case refers to Jesus (Iesus).
“Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus” — Clement Jude Lord Jesus.
“Mitis et misericors Iesus”  — Jesus, forgiving and merciful.

Equinoxes don’t do much for me. I am a committed ‘Winter Solstice‘ Sun worshipper. The Winter Solstice is MY favorite day of the year (and not just because it is so close to Christmas). As of that day the days starts getting longer and I love that. I mourn the ‘Summer Solstice‘ — when days start getting shorter!

The equinoxes to me mark the midway points between the solstices. Three more months to go.

Fall is not really with us as yet in central New Hampshire. I closely studied the foliage on my run up Prospect Mountain this morning. I took some pictures too but they have gone missing from the card! Strange. Never had that happen before. I was using my old camera and not Deanna’s magic Panasonic. Some foliage, not as much as I expected. The leaves that turned red in early August are now dead and withered.

The rain is coming. The Highland Games are in Loon — and we are not there! Though I have had some pangs, as I knew I would, it hasn’t bothered us much. Devanee and Deanna both acknowledged that it was ‘The Games’ weekend. That was all.

Summer Solstice 2013 Tonight, June 21 At 1:04 a.m. Eastern U.S. My Least Favorite Day Of The Year!

Where else but Stonehenge, one of my favorite stomping grounds in Britain. Went there for the first time in 1973. Took my new puppy, a border collie with me. In those days there were no restrictions whatever about walking up to the stones. You parked the car and just trampled across the grass field. The puppy, named Rousseau (after the Swiss philosopher), lifted his leg up against each and every stone! That is still my abiding memory of ‘the Henge’. Rousseau peeing against all the stones. Makes me sad when I see all the ‘modern’ precautions and restrictions, but I do understand. I am glad that Rousseau and I got to visit it when it was still, more or less, just a pile of old rocks in an open field.


My diagram of what happens to the Sun



The exact moment when the North Pole is most tipped towards the Sun occurs at 5:04 (am) Greenwich. That means 1:04 Eastern. I will still be up. I will symbolically tip my hat on behalf of you all.

It is a sad day. Winter is on the way. Bummer.

Never understood why folks in NH celebrate this day. The day to REVEL is the December, Winter Solstice. Our ‘ancestors’ knew that. They even had a huge holiday to celebrate. We now call it Christmas.

Well, you can, of course, do whatever you want. This is a free country.

But, I will, as ever, as I always do at the Summer Solstice, sulk and start counting the days to the Winter Solstice — my best day of the year.

We have only been to Christmas Revels. Thinking about going to this. It looks like a lot of fun, especially if the weather is kind. I had a look. Revels North, the ones who do the amazing Christmas Revels at Dartmouth each year, do not appear to have anything planned for the Spring Equinox. I can understand. They have their hands full with the Solstice shows they do.
