The Saints, History-makers

Hi Darling

Many people believe that money makes the world go round. Others believe that the power of the weapons is more important. For still others, the power of ideas is what matters.

The Bible shows another point of view, however.

In Genesis, God tells Abraham that He will destroy Sodom City due to the impenitence of its residents. Abraham argues that it is not correct to kill indiscriminately upright and guilty. He asks:

– Will you really destroy the upright with the guilty? Suppose there are fifty upright people in the city. Will you really destroy it? Will you not spare the place for the sake of the fifty upright in it?

The Lord replied:

– If I find fifty upright people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place because of them.

Abraham spoke up and said:

– It is presumptuous of me to speak to the Lord, I who am dust and ashes. Suppose the fifty upright were five short? Would you destroy the whole city because of five?

He replied:

– I shall not destroy it if I find forty-five there.

Abraham smartly started to reduce the number of upright people. But there were no upright around there and God indeed destroyed Sodom City.

Will I be wrong if I conclude that the History is made by the saints?

In other words, “God is love”, and, therefore, He can only be moved by the love of the saints.

See the example of Martin, bishop of Tours, that lived in the fourth century.

Martin had travelled abroad. During his absence, a young disciple of him died without Baptism. When the bishop knew that, he rushed back and, beside the unburied body, started immediately to pray. Martin spent a long time praying until the boy finally came back to life. The boy still lived during many years, and he never got tired of repeating the following story. When he died, he was conducted before the divine court and condemned to hell. The sentence was about to be accomplished when two angels appeared and said:

– This is the boy for whom Martin is praying. We have order to lead him back to life.

In the fourth century, the prayer of Martin moved God’s will. Nowadays, the love of the saints moves God’s heart. We know that all things – including the power of money, weapons and ideas – are God works for good for those who love Him.

So, those who make the History are the saints.

PS – Holiness is nothing more than searching the Truth 24 hours a day and trying to live accordingly to it. It doesn’t matter if we can make it every other time. The point is not to give up as “the one who perseveres to the end will be saved.”

See you soon!

Hi Sweety

Time flew. In a few hours you will leave Budapest and you will soon be back home.

Nevertheless, I will continue writing letters to Hungary as a bit of you will stay there. After all, wherever we go, we always take a bit of the others with us and we always leave a bit of us with the others.

See you soon!

Hope for Brazil

Hi Honey

Every new year always brings us hope. But have we, Brazilians,  got reasons to expect  a better year than the preceding ones?

In the last decades, our country became a worldwide champion in murderings – around 70 thousand homicides a year in 2014. We are champions in traffic fatalities: more than 40 thousand deaths a year. We have the biggest Tax Revenue in the whole solar system, up to 60% of IGP according to Ives Gandra, the greatest Brazilian expert in taxes. We have one of the highest interest taxes of the galaxy. We have the most expensive iphone in the entire universe. The Catholic Church in Brazil is totally broken after decades under the influence of Theology of Liberation. All of this thanks to  the advance of Marxist thinking in our country allowed by our elite’s indolence.

Although this negative approach, I believe that we have real reasons to have hope.

2014 felt the first conservative street manifestations after decades of leftist dominance. It will also be reminded as the year of the birth of the first conservative printed newspaper: the printed version of Midia Sem Mascara site. The Foro de São Paulo is no longer a secret issue. The Father Paulo Ricardo has come twice to São Paulo City in order to lecture about new books of Molokai Publishing House. He had a direct contact with his students and he could strength them with his presence.

All of this has been only possible thanks to Olavo de Carvalho philosopher’s teachings. During many years he studied and clarified issues such the Antonio Gramsci’s cultural hegemony, the Foro de São Paulo and the Marcuse’s influence in Brazilian thinking. Due to his coherence between thinking and life, he managed to join people that contributed valuably to stop the Communist advance in our country. Because of this, the multitude of demonstrators showed the slogan “Olavo is right”.

The street manifestations will not stop, the Midia Sem Mascara will advance, Father Paulo Ricardo will come more times to São Paulo City to strengthen us, and  teacher Olavo de Carvalho is an indefatigable giant. 2015 promises to be a year of many fights as well as many victories. You will briefly be back and may fight by our side.

Yes, 2015 will be a very happy year.

Love

Daddy
