A paralysed man has been able to walk again after a pioneering therapy that involved transplanting cells from his nasal cavity into his spinal cord.

Darek Fidyka, who was paralyzed from the chest down in a knife attack in 2010, can now walk using a frame.

The treatment, a world first, was carried out by surgeons in Poland in collaboration with scientists in London.

No more need to use the stem cells from unborn babies.

The Rule of St. Benedict also recommends the beating of monks who are rebellious or disobedient.


Maybe Priests can beat sprinkle tiresome parishioners too!

FIFY

Pastors get to sprinkle tiresome or popular parishioners with holy water on Theophany every year.
Some people really get a good soaking.


Voice of experience there....did you get soaked?

FIFY

Yes, our pastor loved to soak all the choir members.


shouldn't chase popularity...


after all, as a choir member you should know that we sing...

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you.....

However, we should love one another as Christ has loved us.


ah well.....Christ loves us enough to scold us.  He loved the Apostles enough to do the same to them....

Scolding needn't be physical affliction of pain or use of force and violence. Children act out to get a rise out of their peers (usually their parents), because they want people to acknowledge them. To scold them, it is only necessary to communicate the message in an intelligent way, not to use force.

What is the value of truth? What is the value of telling the truth, of being sincere?

Now correcting on the basis of Fabio's post (which was worthwhile). The value of truth, if used sincerely, is that it is not a lie. Lies lead to distrust and disunity at best and destroys peoples lives (even for seemingly trivial lives ) at worst. Consistent truth builds trust and cohesion at its best and distress upon the person living the lie at its worse, although as instruction it is positive in intention. There may be exceptions if the misguided person is ill or mentally disabled in some way, such that delay may be in order, but even that may not require the necessity of a lie.

I am being simple minded here because I am.

I am incredibly upset... I sent out a package to Montana on the 4th and it still hasn't gotten there. My friend who is the recipient has had mail go missing from her tiny rinky-dink post office multiple times (she has to pick it up at the office itself), and methinks there is a thief working there.

What was I mailing? Oh, just a full-size knitted blanket that I slaved over since the spring. The worst part is, her toddler knew that it was coming and is upset that it's not there yet. I'm so angry. I will not use USPS for packages anymore.

The blanket showed up on Saturday to a very happy little girl and a very relieved Kelly! I even got a precious video of her opening the package. So grateful - I was praying very hard that it would make it to her.

First-class mail isn't what it used to be - did they tell you at the post office that it may take up to 2 weeks to deliver?

I send a lot of certified letters and it takes up to a week to receive the green card from the return receipt.

No, they absolutely did not tell me it could take that long. I had already started on a replacement blanket and am about 50% done with it - it will be sent UPS. I am never sending a package through USPS again. It's not worth the stress.

They should have been upfront with you - give you an estimated delivery so you could plan accordingly.  I don't know how much expensive UPS or FedEX are.  Last time I used either, the price difference vs. USPS was significant - but that was over 10 years ago.

Sincerity and truth are not related.

If I believe the Earth is flat, I can defend it with all sincerity and authenticity. And it is still not true.


Also, one can be false and evil only telling truths ("How am I then a villain to counsel Cassio to this parallel course, directly to his good?")

Truth is reality. We live in truth. The obligation to say the truth is not related to moralistic demands but to be able to stand in soul and action in relation to things that are real and not illusion. We have to tell the truth to ourselves, about ourselves and the world. That is character and the beginning of the purification of the nous.

Your example is good, but sincerity and truth are sometimes intertwined. Sincerely relating  the fact that an accident occurred one hour ago on the busy intersection of X and Y and recommending an alternative route that takes you 15 minutes out of your way, is a truth, but perhaps not at the moment it was spoken (it might or might not). Your Shakespeare quote, is not within my knowledge. It sounds like an incomplete truth from the perspective of the one saying it. I do not think I am required to know this quote.
