This is Frank@yahoo writing a post for Manfraco.
In the last post Manfraco wants to continue with post Chapter 3; however this time I don't feel like writing Chapter 3, because I feel that Manfraco could have written a bit more about his, Just pleasant email surprise, so, I am going to try to write a bit more myself about the Vatican and what they are doing there, just to expand a bit more that subject, as there is a lot more going on over there.
Since in last post we were taking about the Virgin Mary I would like to add this writings which I have found on the net; they are about some explanations of prayers and also some speeches from the pope.
Prayer is a form of religious practice that seeks to activate a volitional connection to some greater power in the universe through deliberate intentional practice. Prayer may be either individual or communal and take place in public or in private. It may involve the use of words, song, or complete silence. When language is used, prayer may take the form of a hymn, incantation, formal creedal statement, or a spontaneous utterance in the praying person. There are different forms of prayer such as petitionary prayer, prayers of supplication, thanksgiving, and worship/praise. Prayer may be directed towards a deity, spirit, deceased person, or lofty idea, for the purpose of worshiping, requesting guidance, requesting assistance, confessing sins or to express one's thoughts and emotions. Thus, people pray for many reasons such as personal benefit or for the sake of others.
Prayer for New Beginnings
You have called your servants
of which we cannot see the ending,
by paths as yet untrodden,
through perils unknown.
Give us faith to go out with good courage,
not knowing where we go,
but only that your hand is leading us
and your love supporting us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
This pope is doing what he can, he is progressing with the times, as he tries to meet other religious leaders, in the hope that one day they can be closer to each other. So, really we should be glad of this progress; But is it going to be enough, this is what I wonder?
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
On this Sunday the second after Christmas and the first of the New Year I am glad to renew to all my wishes for every good in the Lord! Problems are not lacking in the Church and in the world, as well as in the daily life of families, but thanks be to God our hope is not based on improbable predictions or financial forecasts, however important these may be. Our hope is in God, not in the sense of a generic religiosity or a fatalism cloaked in faith. We trust in God who revealed completely and definitively in Jesus Christ his desire to be with human beings, to share in our history, to guide us all to his Kingdom of love and life. And this great hope enlivens and at times corrects our human hopes.
After the Angelus:
I greet all the English-speaking pilgrims and visitors present for this Angelus. As we continue to rejoice in the birth of Christ our Saviour, let us pray for the grace to live through love in his presence. Thus, like John the Baptist in today's Gospel, we can be witnesses to the light that enlightens the whole of Creation. Upon each of you and your loved ones at home, I invoke God's abundant blessings!
I wish everyone a peaceful Sunday and a good New Year.
TO BE CONTINUED;
