Merry Christmas

Hi Sweety

Christmas has arrived once again. Tell me how this feast is in Budapest. Much different from here?

This is your first Christmas away from your family. Distance and homesickness are almost synonyms. Every homesickness is the sadness for not having the wanted goodness. Ultimately, it is homesickness of God, of the Supreme Good, of the lost paradise. Whatever the man does trying to deceive himself, he does not forget the paradise that he lost. “You have made us for Yourself, Oh Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in You.”

To many people, this feast, at the end of the year, is time of solitude and sadness because it is the time of year in which they think more about the lost paradise. The memory of our final destiny shocks against all the everyday rush we live in believing this world is eternal, trying to pretend that death does not exist. But the memory comes brutal as we see the nativity scene and we remember the God comes to earth to redeem us from ours sins.

The man sinned in Paradise. And with sin, death, illness and evil entered the world. Sin is the only evil in the world.

It is very easy and comforting to say “man’s sin”, “the human being is evil”, “the mankind’s vices”. That how human beings act, we are willing to put the blame on someone else.  “It was not my fault. The woman whom you put here with me – she gave me fruit from the tree, so I ate it” said Adam putting the blame on Eve. Eve put the blame in the snake: “The serpent tricked me into it, so I ate it.”

It would be more honest each one of us recognize the weakness of ourselves and say “my sin”.

My sin, one more scourge in the body of Christ… my sin, one more burden on the cross of Christ… my sin, one more hammered in the nails of Christ… my sin, one more scorn on the crucified Christ… my sin, the only evil in the world…

In the humble nativity scene, God Child comes again to invite us to get free from sin through prayer and repentance. He comes to call us to the Father’s house. It is time of peace and joy. It is time to say “yes!” to God.

Christmas has arrived once again.

Merry Christmas!

Petrolão – Crime Lesson

Hi Darling

Are you following the Petrolão scandal?

The Federal Public Prosecutor yesterday finally indicted 36 people in the Federal Police’s “Lava-Jato” operation that investigates corruption in Petrobras during the government of Marxist PT (Partido dos Trabalhadores – Worker’s Party).

The Federal Attorney said that Petrolão is a “crime lesson”. Here in Brazil everybody is astonished with such robbery. It is because they do not know History nor Communism. See what general Ion Mihai Pacepa – the highest Soviet bloc official ever to have defected – wrote about Communism in an article of last year:

“In theory, socialism is an idyllic dream. In reality, it is a phony nightmare, modelled after Karl Marx’s infamous dictum “Jeder nach seinen Fähigkeiten, jedem nach seinen Bedürfnissen” (from each according to his ability, to each according to his need), a social theory that has destroyed the economy of every country where it has been applied. To put it into plain English, the socialist redistribution of wealth is theft, and stealing became a national policy on the day the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was born. Immediately after the revolution of November 1917, Russia’s new socialist government confiscated the imperial family’s wealth, seized the land owned by the rich Russians, nationalized Russian industry and banking, and killed most of the property owners. In 1929, the Kremlin turned its covetous eyes toward the poorest elements in the country; by forcing the peasants into collective farms, it stole away their land, along with their animals and agricultural tools. Within a few years, virtually the entire Soviet economy was running on stolen property.

“In the mid 1930s, the Communist Party itself became a target for theft. Following a brief period of collective leadership exercised by the Central Committee and later by its elite, the Politburo, Stalin personally stole all the top-level positions in the country and pinned them onto his own chest like war decorations, thereby establishing a dismal new feudalism in the middle of the 20th century. That is exactly what occurred later throughout Eastern Europe, when the Soviet socialists took over after World War II. By the time I said goodbye forever to Socialist Romania in 1978, the list of official positions and titles accumulated by Ceausescu and his wife could have easily filled a whole page.

“The 1991 collapse of the Soviet Empire signaled a stern warning that in the long run stealing does not pay, even when committed by the government of a huge country. All socialists who have ever risen to lead a country have ended up in hell — all, from Lenin to Stalin, Tito to Zhivkov, Enver Hoxha to Mátyás Rakosi, Sékou Touré to Nyeree. All had their days of temporary glory, but all ended in eternal disgrace. A few remnants, like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, are still hanging on, but they certainly have a place in hell reserved for them. (Update: Chavez has died since the writing of this post.) In this year that Marx’s Manifesto turns 164 years old and should have long been discredited, there are still some foolish countries like Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Cyprus, Italy, and Spain that are being devastated by a misplaced trust in its advocacy of “to each according to his need” and its consequential redistribution of the country’s wealth.”

The only choice for us, Brazilians, is to learn from History and expel these Communist people from politics. As the general Pacepa wrote, mentioning essayist George Santayana, those, who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it.

Black Awareness Day

Hi Honey

It was holliday last November 20Th. Black Awareness Day.

I beg your pardon?? but awareness has now became colored?

This holiday was created under the Marxist government of PT (Partido dos Trabalhadores – Worker’s Party) more than 10 years ago. The excuses for creating such madness were the same old ones: to correct a historic mistake, to make society conscious, to give black people equal opportunities towards a fairer world… blablabla.

First of all, that is the good old class conflict strategy synthetized more than 150 years ago in Communist Manifesto by Marx’s cynical cry “Working men of all countries, unite!”. He didn’t say but should have also said “May you unite because depending on me you are fried!” Employee against employer, woman against man, children against parents, cyclist against driver, black against white, everybody against God. Who still believes in this chatter?

Secondly, who named them Champions of Justice?

Third, this “historical mistake” speech is nonsense. Following this reasoning we will soon be separating Cain and Abel fight. In order to incite racial hatred, these Communists hide the fact that African muslins (many of them black people) have had invaded Europe to enslave people much time before the event of black slavery. The human being exploitation by other ones is not a characteristic of white Europeans; on the contrary, it has occurred so far, all around the world.

Fourth, the class conflict strategy manipulates the lowest human being instincts. It foments frustration and inferiority complex in minorities in order to make them feel victims and then they became mass of manipulation in hands of manipulators.

Fifth, Marx was totally mistaken to think that this kind of problem is solved by fomenting hatred among brothers. The exploitation of employees by bad employers and the slavery are consequences of human passions and they have a name: sin – personal sin. Sin, being personal, must be banished by means of searching personal holiness – by means of prayer and penitence and examination of conscience. The issue is personal not social. So, there is no fair society but just  fair people.

Sixth, accusing Brazilians of racism is deception. People whose patroness is a black woman, whose birth is a result from an alliance between black, Portuguese and native people, that have extinguished slavery without a shot, that adore their black king of soccer. Brazil does not have prejudice of race; we have prejudice against poor people but this is another matter.

Christ – founder of the civilization that Marx and his followers try to destroy – incarnated and came to earth in order to teach us that each person is result of a God’s love action. As this Brazilian saying – May God know how to count up to one. Each human being has an individuality, a personality and a dignity emanated directly from the God’s love. Each of us came to this world to perform an exclusive and unrepeatable mission – also known as vocation – determined by the God’s will. Each human being has the same dignity: the dignity of God’s son. This concept of personality is hated by Communist regimes for whom people are simple numbers which is only useful for statistics.

Thanks to this unique conception of sin, vocation and divine sonship, the Christians were the ones who fight – and keep fighting – more against slavery. An historian of the beginning of the Christian Era wrote: “The founder of this religion put on their followers mind that all men are siblings”. And he added, astonished: “And they really believe so!”

So, I’d rather like Christ teaching instead of Marx pathetic phrase:

– You have but one Teacher, and you are all brothers.
