Back to top Home News U. Both Churchill and Roosevelt were desperate to disbelieve the most damaging intelligence because it would be a bomb beneath the system.
Never underestimate how far the establishment will go to protect itself — and the monarchy is deeply entangled with the State. You also have to remember that a lot of the info we have know has been suppressed for decades, only becoming available to researchers due to statutes of limitation. Another thing I heard was the queen mum originally wanted to marry Edward viii and not his brother.
When he was prince of Wales he was very good looking charming and popular. All the aristocratic girls threw themselves at him. I also heard they hardly had sex, although no one can know how true that is. I think the queen mums hatred for walis Simpson was partly down to jealousy, in top of everything else that happened. February Pisces, agree about jealousy being a motivating factor. QM rejected her husband several times, but kept him dangling while she chased the PoW. He was not interested and let her know it.
She eventually settled for the younger brother. She was as ambitious as any Middleton. Agree with ArtHistorian. In the 30s, a lot of upper class British and aristocrats toyed with fascism and thought Nazi Germany was the future.
I read this fascinating biography of the aristocratic Mitford sisters and a lot of them were in deep with the 3rd Reich. Edward was a liability but untouchable. Also, there was an episode of the Crown last season where the Queens art curator was a Soviet spy, and they never prosecuted him.
These people get away with a lot of traitorous stuff. Look how Putin seems to be able to poison and assassinate people all over the UK with barely a prosecution or a sanction. But the worse crime is marrying Harry while being biracial, editing Vogue, and actually wanting to make an impact with your work and patronages. Such a messed up system. His confession was held secret for many years. Many other scholars have worked on Poussin but Blunt was one who really influenced the scholarship on the artist in a huge way.
And the British upper-class did indeed flirt with fascism in the s. A few years ago an old film clip of the Queen Mother as well as a young Liz doing the Nazi salute came to light. It was from Her uncle, later King Edward, was also in the movie. So yeah, even the BRF was fascinated with fascism in the s.
Anyone in this day and age who truly believe they are specially chosen by God to rule needs to seek psychiatric help. I wonder if Charles is going to pull the same crap? That is just one of the many reasons why the Coronation ritual should be abolished.
The fact that the monarch is crowned and anointed in church by an arch-bishop symbolizes that the monarch is chosen by God. The ceremony is an old relic from feudal times and it has no place in a constitutional monarchy. Britain is the only European monarchy that still performs a coronation ceremony rather than having the new monarch proclaimed by the PM.
We all hold the same amount of significance and the same amount of insignificance. For each step forward it seems some idiot takes two steps back. If Meghan wins she sets the precedent for others to come after the press more. I do not think they have chosen to get away from the spotlight. IS the spotlight. Malibu, Beverly Hills, etc is paparazzi tabloid gossip country.
I think they are choosing a different life and are exploring ways of earning large money. Because they have changed locations several times, leads me to think they are unsure of how to make big money but they will learn.
They certainly can do little at this time for the same reason the rest of us can not. Now they can be more activist about it! They clearly intend to use their platform and star power for good.
As they should. That would be something to see. They wanted privacy for Archie, yes. June, you purposely ignore that the world over is filled with billionaires from all corners of the earth. Money is not made in LA alone. Also, the Sussexes have never moved numerous times. Last but not least, where are you getting the Sussexes said they wanted privacy for themselves?
I think this is a bit premature as well as being judgmental. Even if they lived in Singapore or Dubai, there would be some snark about it. Despite the endless days of this lockdown, they only officially stepped down April 1, less than a month ago. LA is their home right now, and Frogmore is still their U. Harry is enjoying the freedom he craved since his teens. But not with his wife and maybe even not with his kid; 3 to interfere in their marriage with psychological tricks to make Harry feel guilty, and in the end divorce Megan and come back to the UK.
Yeah, they do believe they have power over a grown man with a family, who is no longer living off of the British taxer and no longer works for the queen. As for the optics, Harry will not leave his anchor behind for a unsupportive royal institution reluctant to modernize, and for a bias, abusive and intrusive press pack, who harmed him as a child, hunted and abused him as a teenager and an adult, and was busy destroying him and the family he always longed to have.
Even if Harry went back to the UK, without Meghan and Archie, no way would the press stop harassing and slandering Meghan, and would start in on Archie.
Why would he go back to the UK when his kid would be living in n. Nope, he would want to live full time close to archie. Could these kinds of stories die already?
Why would he even care what his pedo protecting grandmother thinks? Quit placing emotions anywhere near this woman. This narrative that the queen is hurting is such a projection and always has been. Wait until she dies — the main storyline is going to be how she died heartbroken that Harry left her and evil Meghan is laughing about it.
Share this good news with them! God has made provision to remove all condemnation through Christ Jesus. Let condemnation be replaced with conviction! Yes, let conviction bring confession … so that we agree with God that His word and righteous decrees are holy and just. Oh, there is hope for the sinner who feels condemned!
There is freedom for the captive and the broken-hearted! For the kindness of God is intended to lead us to repentance! God sent His light into the world, and His light has overcome the darkness!
John Let us share that light with whoever will believe…. When we think about Jesus, do we think about Him or His mission? But I think it is important for us to spend time mediating on His mission. What we might on occasion overlook or forget is that His mission was for everyone … for the whole world.
It was through the redemption obtained by Jesus that God would reconcile the world to Himself. The goal was to bring light into the world … understanding and the wisdom of God … so that we might know the only true God and Creator … that we might reverence Him … that we might surrender ourselves to Him. When we think about Jesus, His Being is tied to His mission.
And Jesus went to great lengths … even an undeserved death on a cross to complete and fulfill the will of God for us who believe. It is now our responsibility as the Church to continue the mission….
What we need to realize and remember is that every human ever born is lost…. Think about that for a moment. Every human ever born is lost and in need of salvation. It is not our human nature to seek God.
The Father has set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what He has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes Therefore, the Father seeks us! And God does so in a personal way … through Jesus His Son! On the basis of this spiritual patrimony and the teaching of the Gospel, it called for greater mutual understanding and esteem between Christians and Jews and deplored all manifestations of hatred, persecution and anti-Semitism.
At the very beginning of my Pontificate, I wish to assure you that the Church remains firmly committed, in her catechesis and in every aspect of her life, to implementing this decisive teaching. John Paul II , took significant steps towards improving relations with the Jewish people. It is my intention to continue on this path. Cologne is the oldest site of a Jewish community on German soil, dating back to the Colonia of Roman times.
John Paul II. The number 12, which evidently refers to the 12 tribes of Israel, reveals the meaning of the prophetic-symbolic action implied in the new initiative of founding the holy people again.
In choosing the twelve, introducing them into a communion of life with him and making them sharers in the same mission of announcing the Kingdom with words and deeds cf. With their very own existence, the Twelve — called from different backgrounds — become an appeal for all of Israel to convert and allow herself to be gathered into the new covenant, complete and perfect fulfilment of the ancient one.
The fact that he entrusted to his Apostles, during the Last Supper and before his Passion, the duty to celebrate his Pasch, demonstrates how Jesus wished to transfer to the entire community, in the person of its heads, the mandate to be a sign and instrument in history of the eschatological gathering begun by him. In a certain sense we can say that the Last Supper itself is the act of foundation of the Church, because he gives himself and thus creates a new community, a community united in communion with himself.
There he said,. The past is never simply the past. It always has something to say to us; it tells us the paths to take and the paths not to take. There he declared:. My visit to the United States offers me the occasion to extend a warm and heartfelt greeting to my Jewish brothers and sisters in this country and throughout the world. While the Christian celebration of Easter differs in many ways from your celebration of Pesakh , we understand and experience it in continuation with the biblical narrative of the mighty works which the Lord accomplished for his people.
Although his synagogue visit was scheduled well in advance it was designated as personal and informal, not part of his official program, a way of speaking to the Jewish people from his heart. I would ask those of you who are present to pass on my greetings and good wishes to all the members of the Jewish community.
Blessed be the name of the Lord! More than that. He has made a disproportionate effort to communicate to Jews. Good will and concern. Catholic s understand Jewish concern. But there is also good will. Our awareness of one another, asleep for twenty centuries, has now awakened.
Nebo , in the Jordanian sector. As we recall, on a clear day all of ancient Judea, Samaria and Galilee, as far as Jerusalem and the edge of the Mediterranean are visible from there. Moses gazed upon the Promised Land from afar, at the end of his earthly pilgrimage. Yet we trust that, by doing our small part, in fidelity to the vocation each of us has received, we will help to make straight the paths of the Lord and welcome the dawn of his Kingdom.
There he said :. They lost their lives, but they will never lose their names: these are indelibly etched in the hearts of their loved ones, their surviving fellow prisoners, and all those determined never to allow such an atrocity to disgrace mankind again. Most of all, their names are forever fixed in the memory of Almighty God. There he prayed :. This is the message that I wish to leave with you today, at the conclusion of my pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
May it take root in your hearts, abide in your families and communities, and inspire in each of you an ever more faithful witness to the Prince of Peace!
We should welcome the opportunity to befriend this pope, all the more so when he is facing down the enemies of Israel within the Church. We should seek to make common cause with Catholics on the issues that unite us, above all the holiness of life, which is what God first called us to his service to defend. The Council gave a strong impetus to our irrevocable commitment to pursue the path of dialogue, fraternity and friendship, a journey which has been deepened and developed in the last forty years, through important steps and significant gestures.
To the Jews belong the sonship, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; to them belong the patriarchs and of their race, according to the flesh is the Christ. In which the personal and reciprocal, faithful and definitive Yes of man and woman makes room for the future, for the authentic humanity of each, and makes them open, at the same time, to the gift of new life.
But by the time he was a priest, there was little living community left to talk of, so his engagement was not as a developed adult. This profoundly shapes his sensitivity and his commitment to the Jewish-Christian relationship. Gen ]. Where are you, o man? What have you come to? I ask and I humbly entreat those countries to grant Christians freedom to worship and to practice their faith, in light of the freedom which followers of Islam enjoy in Western countries!
He had a history of good relationships with the Jewish community in Argentina before becoming pope. The land of Israel is important to both Jews and Christians. Nonetheless, it is necessary to give firm encouragement and support to those who decide to remain faithful to their land, in order to ensure it does not become an archaeological site without an ecclesial life.

After spending his inheritance on the pleasures of sin, the prodigal son learned that the broad road really does lead to destruction.
Having found that sin provides no ultimate satisfaction, he saw tragedy become opportunity as he realized that his father was his only refuge.
Reflecting on this parable, Alistair Begg points out that like the prodigal son, each of us has also gone astray. Father, as we prepare to study the Bible together, we need to hear your voice, far beyond the voice of a mere man. We thank you that the Bible is a living book; it searches us out.
So search us out, we pray. I invite you to turn to Luke chapter After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need.
So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything. I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.
I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.
And I think this young man would have been quite happy to play that Lennon and McCartney song. He certainly would have been able to identify with its sentiment. When he had set off taking all that he had, all that had fallen to him, he knew that he had a great and glorious future in front of him—at least, he believed so.
Verse hired out to a citizen of the country to which he went and sent into the fields to feed pigs. Now, remember in all of our study of this that Jesus is telling a story here in order to describe the way in which men and women, in their rebellion and in their indifference, turn their back on God-Father and walk away, out down the road of their lives, to please themselves. So, recorded for us at the end of chapter 14 are the words of warning which Jesus extends to those who are just heedless in their enthusiasm.
You never know when Jesus is going to do a miracle. Jesus, of course, is not interested in having people just drift behind him. And so he turns to these heedless enthusiasts and he issues them a striking word of warning. He was saying that to follow Christ is the singular priority.Aug 12, · The Prodigal son was repentant and had a change of heart and wanted to go home to be his father's servant and his father was just waiting for his son to be at that point of complete loss on his own and realization of needing forgiveness. The father didn't say, while his son was still off partying and squandering his life away, "Sure, son!
