THE UNKNOWN ASSUMPTION

August 15, 2017

What I wouldn’t give to  know for sure that I’d be reunited with my own son in Heaven some day!!!!!

To “assume”  may mean to make a mental leap,  an educated guess;  but it can also mean something in the physical world.   That is, the physical taking up of something.

This Assumption is largely unknown outside of Christendom,  and rapidly disappearing from even the vestiges of Christianity.    But there are those,  surprisingly many,  who still choose to recognize the Assumption on August 15th.

The Assumption of Mary:

There are so many beautiful works of art about the Assumption of Mary –  Centuries and centuries of trying to get it just right!    I like this one because it shows movement.   The Virgin’s hair seems to be moving, or flowing,   because of the upward motion,   and people seem to be reaching.

The Church doesn’t teach one way or the other whether Mary, the Mother of Jesus actually died or if she  “fell asleep”  and was taken up in to Heaven,  but it doesn’t matter.   The teaching,  based on contemporary writings, is that her body totally disappeared from the place where she lay in a deep trance?  coma?  sleep?

Everything about her physical presence is just gone.  No relics.    No pieces of cloth or hair.  No “bones.”  No vials of blood.   Nothing.  Most unusual, for even the least of the martyrs had some relics saved.    It’s what they did in those days.

The Assumption of Mary into Heaven is clear.

Just as we will go “some” place when we die,   so did she.

The Love of God in each lover of God unites,  and separation is only temporary.

So  just as Death will not end our love and will not separate us from our Loved Ones,  in and among this wonderful Community  of Saints,  dead and alive,  we will still love and care for each other,  and so does she . . . .

Heaven is not a matter of time and distance.  It’s Eternity,  an eternal now that permeates the physical world.

When Jesus (on the Cross)  gave His mother to be ours,  He means now.

ADDENDUM — WHO IS THIS GUY?

August 15, 2017

So,  let’s play  “Guess Who?”  concerning the events this week in Virginia.

The Guess Who man fancies himself a poet, and reads his poetry on his YouTube channel.   In 2015, in one video he declares his hatred for Christianity;  in another he reads a poem about   the “white devils,”   manifesting hatred of whites, although he, too, is a white person.

Next, this man writes on his own blog that the profession he admires most is the Provocateur.    He would like to become a provocateur –  for hire, of course.

He is an admirer of the Barack Hussein person, occupying the White House.

This man is also a participant and promoter of the Occupy movements, those foreign-funded mobs which cause riots and try to shut down areas of major cities.

Know who this man is yet?   . . .

The Barack-Hussein person leaves the office of the president after eight years, and moves his headquarters to a neighborhood in Washington DC, close to his former office  —   to keep active.

The nearby city of Charlottesville Virginia declares itself to be “the capital of anti-Trump resistance.”

The man  ( the Guess Who man)  is a supporter of the Barack Hussein person and he in the summer of 2016 he takes on a new persona to achieve his goal of riots and civil war, whatever it takes to bring down America.

In Charlottesville,  2017,  he masquerades as a “right-wing”  white nationalist demonstration organizer.     He is . . .?

His name is Jason Kessler,  the man pegged as the leader of the “protest movement” in Charlottesville,  the ones the foreign-funded Antifa and Black Lives Matter people had to become so violent against.

What does the entertainment-news media tells us about him?    The “right-wing” white nationalist protest movement,” led by Jason Kessler,” is armed and violent and dangerous, and so is everyone who is “right wing”  and every  white person better be ashamed of this movement and say the “right words”  to denounce this movement.

So,  that’s the guy.    An extreme Left-Winger.

While we’re at it,   what do we know about the young man,   James Fields, who drove his car into the crowd of demonstrators?

Who is that guy?

He is a young  psychiatric patient who is on three or four different psychotropic drugs.   You know,  the ones who warn on the drug package inserts that the side effects are “homicide”  and “suicide.”     The drugs that actually cause brain damage. . . .

The police were called to his house because he was beating up his mother.

The police were also called to his house because he had pulled a knife on his mother.

His (liberal)  college teacher said he had a “fascination”  with the Nazis –   without explaining that it was a fascination with Nazi symbols,  the false “glamour”  of the Nazis,  and that he had no idea what the Nazi movement was all about, except for its slogans.

He is truly mentally ill.

That guy.
