The Ebola virus is proving to be the deadliest microbe and most complex pathogen in recent history, specifically because Ebola Virus Disease(EVD) spreads within the context of social norms, such as embracing, or touching while caring for an infected carrier or contaminated environment. The alarmist nature of the American tabloids and cable news is causing anxiety and spreading fear and misinformation about the EVD.

R.E.S.T.O.R.E. - The first "R" of this Planet Restoration acronymn stands for "Relation"; and, for this reason, we want to turn our attention to our relations currently facing and attempting to address the recent outbreak of the Ebola virus in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone. Why has the international communtiy been so slow to respond, and appear to have turned its back on Africa? What is reality and what is myth concerning the Ebola virus? How has the global media helped to raise awareness and stem the spread of the virus; AND, has the media made matters worse by stoking peoples' greatest fears, promoting misinformation, misrepresenting how Africa actually is, and magnifying already-existing stigmas surrounding disease in Africa? What can everyday people do right now to help stop the spread of Ebola?

Pope Pius XI originally established the Feast of Christ the King in 1925 to remind modern man that no matter how technically advanced Mankind becomes, Jesus will always be Lord. The Pope was deeply concerned of the rise of Secularism which today is everywhere.
The Pope wrote, “The faithful, moreover, by meditating upon these truths, will gain much strength and courage, enabling them to form their lives after the true Christian ideal. If to Christ our Lord is given all power in heaven and on earth; if all men, purchased by his precious blood, are by a new right subjected to his dominion; if this power embraces all men, it must be clear that not one of our faculties is exempt from his empire. He must reign in our minds, which should assent with perfect submission and firm belief to revealed truths and to the doctrines of Christ. He must reign in our wills, which should obey the laws and precepts of God. He must reign in our hearts, which should spurn natural desires and love God above all things, and cleave to him alone. He must reign in our bodies and in our members, which should serve as instruments for the interior sanctification of our souls, or to use the words of the Apostle Paul, as instruments of justice unto God.” (Quas Primas #33, Liberia Editrice Vaticana)

Dr. Elaina George is a Board certified Otolaryngologist. She graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Biology. Dr. George will discuss the Ebola crisis and how much faith we should have in our government’s ability to tell us the truth as well as its capacity to manage this extreme danger.
