SORT BY Relevancy
Father René LAURENTIN
It happened in the Orient. This is not a tale of "A thousand and one nights". It is an astonishing document, truly disconcerting. We are in Damascus (Syria), the city where Saul of Tarsus was about to persecute the first Christians, and when he arrived...as a Christian, overcome by Christ. It is an Arab city where Christians are many, scattered among various confessions, the differences and divergences of which emerged throughout history. One finds in it all the contrasts of the Middle East, with deep Christian roots.
It happened to Myrna on November 27th, 1982, at Soufanieh, a Christian quarter of Damascus, Syria: a small inexpensive icon, in a plastic setting frame, starts to ooze oil, drop by drop, enough to fill a saucer. Myrna is 18 years old. She is married to Nicolas since 7 months. She welcomes this oil as God's gift. Her husband had bought the icon during a trip to Bulgaria.(1)
Wise men and scientists, even theologians, may knit their brows.
Oil? What for, what does it mean ? We have lost the sense of signs. The post-conciliar ritual (Vatican II) has suppressed the anointing of oil to the catechumens, symbol of the combat which characterizes Christian life. This unction, similar to the one applied on wrestlers, who, thanks to it, have escaped the holds of the adversary, is today optional and generally omitted. But one has kept the "Holy Chrism", oil that anoints the priests, bishops, and every baptized, every confirmed, as a sign that all Christians participate to Christ's fellowship. Oil is a Christian language.
Whats does Benjamin Netanyahu winning meaning to the Middle East? Are we heading into the Tribulation Period? Or are we going to see last peace on the Earth like some Major Church believe we are going to have?
We appreciate the return of General Vallely, of Stand Up America, and joining him, Colonel Nagi Najjar. We will continue the discussion of the current international picture; and can address the many changes occurring in the Middle East. Both of these men have firsthand knowledge, and deep insight into the many nations of this region, to share with us.

After watching the news this week, my heart was bombarded and beaten up by the images of violence, the evidence of prejudice, and the sounds of discord. It took me some time in meditation to regain my equilibrium.
We have been participating in the SEASON FOR NONVIOLENCE: a 64 day campaign, co-founded in 1998 by Dr. Arun Gandhi and The Association for Global New Thought (AGNT), spanning the January 30th and April 4th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Suddenly, I realized that I don't want a season for nonviolence; I WANT A SEASON OF PEACE -- A SEASON OF LOVE -- A SEASON OF TRUTH.
A book by James Allen, author of the New thought classic, As a Man Thinketh , jumped out at me. It's entitled Above Life's Turmoil (1910). I realized how much we need to RISE ABOVE LIFE'S TURMOIL or we will be consumed by it. James Allen wrote --
We cannot alter external things, nor shape other people to our liking, nor mould the world to our wishes but we can alter internal things,-our desires, passions, thoughts,-we can shape our liking to other people, and we can mould the inner world of our own mind in accordance with wisdom, and so reconcile it to the outer world if men and things. The turmoil of the world we cannot avoid, but the disturbances of mind we can overcome. The duties and difficulties of life claim our attention, but we can rise above all anxiety concerning them. Surrounded by noise, we can yet have a quiet mind; involved in responsibilities, the heart can be at rest; in the midst of strife, we can know the abiding peace.
Are you chronically or recurrently ill without explanation or cure? Are your children emotionally distressed, having sleep disturbances, or behavioral issues that are difficult to manage? Are you struggling with infertility? Do you feel continually defeated in your Christian life? It may be time to look for cursed objects in your home or your child's room and get rid of them. These may even have come into your home as an innocent gift, as so many simply do not understand the reality of the spiritual impact such items have on us and our families.

Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:

Radio Clinic Garage Theatre: Tonight's shtick: Continuing a review of the 1964 Black-and-White movie," The Train," starring Burt Lancaster. Did George Clooney ripe off the '64 version in the 2014 movie "Monuments Men"? In consideration of the current situation of the ISIS people destroying history in Syria and Iraq, a review of these two movies seems timely. Both movies involve the theft and destruction of art by the Nazis during World War II.
May start a review of the 1963 movie, "The Great Escape."
