The arrival of the Pope is a heart-warming feeling filled with goodwill. Whether you are among the welcome crowd waiting for most part of the day to have a glance at the Pope that lasted 3 sec; or in the privacy of your homes stuck in live TV coverage that lasted 35 mins, this is truly a genuine People Power event. The original announced plan of 3-4 hours parade was cut short to 35 minutes travel @ 40kph yet the crowds were pleased and everyone was happy.
All roads pointing to the Kingship of God

Jesus provided an antidote to the Awdul Horror. It is by sacramental communion. The tradition was initiated during the Last Supper and feast of the Passover, which was the time the Angel of Death had to passover Israelites who were sealed and delivered from Gods Wrath. Technically, the definition is “passed over” the houses of the Israelites during the slaying the firstborn of Egypt which was the final chastisement or tenth plague before the Pharoah finally released Israel from captivity or slavery.
The Eucharist refers to the body of Christ spiritually connected to heaven, which is the mind or head. Logically, those who take communion in a state of grace are saints, and spiritually they collectively belong together in "community" with the other angels and saints in heaven. This spiritual communion is the new being or new creation, where God's Will be done on Earth as in Heaven. The metaphor is the body of Christ depends on the mind for controls and instructions, thus all creation, angels and saints alike fulfill the Will of God.
At the proper time, the human idol will crumble, as it had been fortold to the King of Babylon. Thus the saying that the ruler of this world has already been judged. After all, did not Satan tempt Jesus by offering him all the kingdoms of the world in return for worship? Did not Satan declare that God gave him the power to choose whoever he wants to rule over these kingdoms; But Jesus refused the offer and answered that only God deserves worship? Well, the the human idol is about misplaced worship.

Moses started the tradition of written Scriptures. He founded the nation of Israel by creating a Law that would govern the conduct of lives of Israelites. This Law not only enumerated what should not be done, as the ten commandments have, but Moses also listed behavior that would merit blessings.
The Law that Moses made was not perfect but it was a start. It is later called the Law of Knowledge and Life, which were the fundamental elements present in paradise. If people care to recheck, Genesis started with the situation in Paradise before and after the fall of man, and apart from Knowledge, Life was the missing link to allow man to enjoy paradise again.
Unfortunately the Law of Moses is a soup of rules that includes public health issues, even petty or menial issues that became a nuisance later and exploited by atheists as bordering on ridiculous.
Anyway Jesus declared that not one part of the Law would be removed. I suppose the parts are basically giving choices between a blessing and a curse, The Law got both instructions to deal with GOOD and BAD behavior. It is not all talk of punishment and what not to do, but it allows people to gain Life and become a holy people.
When Jesus arrived, he demonstrated how it can be done but not without disputing the interpretation of the written Law by experts. He did ignore washing of hands before eating, working during the Sabbath, and likewise declared that all foods can be eaten, in direct conflict to some known provisions of Moses' rules.

What Jesus did was to write God's Laws in our hearts. He wants us to bear fruit and live Life to the fullest. Maybe that means the ability for men to let the full measure of the Holy Spirit dwell inside them.

The book of the prophet Jeremiah is filled with allusion to the Awful Horror, which is God's Will, as revealed to the King of Babylon. In fact, Jeremiah warned Israel and Judah about the power of the King of Babylon and its ability to annihilate. Some in Judea heeded the prophesy and left their country (promised land) seeking refuge to the land of Challdeans. But the religious leaders of Israel persecuted the prophet refusing to heed the advise. In a way, the remnants were told to cooperate with the new order (Awful Horror) so they would live and prosper. Israel's defiance cost it its extinction as a nation. Judea's cooperation allowed the Jews to prosper under the successor of Babylon, the Persians.
The book of Judith shows this prophesy of Jeremiah coming to pass when she became queen of Xerxes.

It is best if people read books in whole so they would grasp the story. Jeremiah likewise prophesized the destruction of Babylon. It was annihilated just like what it did to Israel and Judah. What I learn from the book of Jeremiah is that there is a time for everything.
The gospels may have been quoting Jeremiah as an allusion to the Awful Horror. Thus the current hysteria about the man of inquity taking over Rome or Vatican, may be incorrect. Human kingdoms are sources of iniquity and collectively they form the Human Idol, which the King of Babylon saw pulverized in his dream. Many nations cooperate with the Awful Horror or the Abomination that cause Desolation. These nations probably think that is the key to prosperity but what it really does is to take man into his self destruction. Jesus warned that he who lives by the sword shall die by the sword.
Desolation or deep sadness is the end result of this human idol. Maybe there is a need to review Moses and his warnings given to Israel when it decides, out of disobedience, to follow the example of its neighbors and establish a human kingdom.

Judea is no longer in the map. So maybe it is true that Jeremiah's prophesy points to this particular Gospel verse:

In World War 2 even the USA flirted with socialism. Fact is the mass housing financial institutions were among the government corporations created at the time which put initiative at the hands of government instead of the individual. For a while individualism took a backseat. But FDR was no fan of Lenin. Instead of systematic suppression of the middle class that Marx & Lenin advocated, American politics consciously planned to raise the living conditions for the middle class instead.
FDR launched the best challenge yet for the economy by planning road infrastructure that would interconnect the continent. Then the battle cry of two cars in every garage allowed development to sprout into what has become suburbia. For a time this economic model was the American dream which people from other countries wished to enjoy too.

Gospels, apat authors or four versions but they all quote Jesus Jesus said this to explain that what comes out of the person's heart is what defiles him, and not what is taken into his stomach, as the Pharisees would make you believe.
