Healing from the worst malady

Pride, which is translated into every kind of power, is the abyss of moral decay. However, we are healed from such a malady by humility. Jesus said to Faustina: True greatness of the soul is in loving God and in humility (Diary, 427). And, Our Lady, said to Faustina that the virtue of humility is the dearest one both for her and God. “The first is humility, humility, and once again humility” (Diary, 1415).

Tmiem tal-era Ortodossa fi Franza

L-Arċidjoċesi tal-Knejjes Russi fil-Punent tal-Ewropa tista’ tiddeċiedi nhar is-Sibt 7 ta’ Settembru biex tħalli l-Patrijarkat ta’ Kostantinopli u tingħaqad ma’ dak ta’ Moska.

Għalkemm iċ-Ċiina rebħet dan id-dritt minn fost kontendenti oħra, ħafna ma kinux kuntenti li l-logħbiet se jsir f’pajjiż mhux demokratiku. Il-Gvern f’Peking għamel minn kollox biex inessi t-tifkira tad-demm li xtered f’Ġunju tal-1989 fil-Pjazza ta’ Tienanmen. Continue reading “Dħalt iċ-Ċina mill-bieb tal-isports”

Il-Papa dwar il-ktieb ‘Kif l-Amerka trid tibdel il-Papa.

Meta nhar l-Erbgħa, l-4 ta’ Settembru, il-Papa Franġisku kien fuq l-ajruplan minn Ruma lejn il-Mozambique, il-ġurnalist Franċiż Nicolas Senèze ippreżentalu l-ktieb tiegħu ‘Comment L’Amérique veut changer de Pape’ (Kif l-Amerka trid tibdel il-Papa). Il-ktieb jiddeskrivi kif intellettwali sinjuri u tradizzjonalisti jattakkaw lill-Papa Franġisku. Il-Papa, li diġa’ kien qara artiklu dwar il-ktieb, ma ddejjaqx jikkummenta li hu unur għalih li jkun attakkat mill-Amerikani.
