Orthodox-Catholic Discussion / Re: Hell eternal?
« Last post by beebert on Today at 06:37:20 AM »
It is one of the favorite Words you Christians use; but I am sure, you guys are more nihilistic than I am

We believe in plenty of things, thanks.

And true nihilism is a state of mind or heart, not what kind of things you "believe" in. Most of you are the ones who need to believe in all those weird things in order to feel that life has a "purpose", in order for life not to be completely rotten, meaningless or evil. Hence, the majority of you are beneath the surface the true nihilists. Because most of you need something beyond what you experience in everyday life in order to feel that life has a meaning.
Dostoevsky was it who said that everything is permitted without a God huh? A typical christian would say something like that. What it really means is that the one who thinks a God is needed for there to be any meaning to anything is the true nihilist. Anyone who searches for a beyond, for signs and wonders...

And what does your cross really mean? I tell you; most of you have despaired over the fact that you can not will back in time; what has happened has happened. You can't accept your past, you can't move forward, so you need something that eliminates the past, something that eliminates you feeling of "hopelessness", in other words, something that helps you in you pathetic weakness. And what is the solution? A cross! A cross over your past, a miracle to believe in, and suddenly, the future is possible, you can finally will forward instead of backwards.

What are you even talking about?

If you dont understand, then it is certainly your problem

Expressing yourself coherently, also known as 'making sense', is your responsibility.
Your unintelligence and lack of ability to understand is not my problem.

If you can't explain it to a six-year-old, then you don't understand it either. Go! :)
Are you six?

Can you?
With most six-year-olds I would have to really explain what nihilism is. The Chance they would understand might be greater than with you guys Though, since you have a completely wrong understanding of nihilism to begin with. Regarding mentioning christianity and the cross to a Child; I am not sure I would be willing to commit such a crime and speak about such a dangerous ideology.

Vatican II and Liberation Theology ruined roman catholicism in Brazil, no wonder why the number of catholic decrease every year.
We already had occasional married priests and ad populum mass in Portuguese before CV II, which despite not wrong in itself, shows a history of disobedience, which resulted in the creation of the BCAC in 1945. CV II and liberation theology, however, were violent final blows. This is probably why there's a proportionally large group hungry for Orthodoxy or the Tridentine rite, too. As a reaction.

I forgot extreme liturgical abuses within the carismatic movement and other weird movements like the judaizer 'neocathecumenal way'.

Religious Topics / Property rights and Patristics
« Last post by RaphaCam on Today at 06:20:48 AM »
I need to gather as much as possible of Patristic material relating at least loosely to property rights, for university research. So far I have On Love for the Poor (by St. Gregory the Theologian), Homily VI to St. Luke (by St. Basil the Great) and some references from St. Augustine quoted on a particular article.

This is Fr. José Pinto, an actual Roman Catholic priest, getting possessed by a couple of spirits, including a pombagira (Umbanda class of spirits represented as promiscuous women) during an actual Roman Catholic mass. His then bishop (Abp. Geraldo Agnelo) was already a cardinal-priest at this time. At least they all look happy.

Speaking of lightly roasted tealike coffee, I got green ungrounded unroasted coffee beans and boiled them for a quite long time as the seller recommended. He claimed it was a sudanese method. It reminded me of a green tea version of coffee. I did not like it.


Well, green coffee smells like some sort of bean, doesn't remember coffee smell at first, just after roasting the tipical coffee smell starts.

For a happier German Cistercian story, Neuzelle Abbey, secularized in the 1820s, is being repopulated by monks from Austria.

https://agensir.it/quotidiano/2017/8/28/germany-neuzelle-abbey-reborn-after-200-years-of-closing-mass-and-liturgy-of-the-hours-from-now-on/

Quote
Yesterday, the German Cistercian order had an important day: 4 monks from Heiligenkreuz Abbey, in Lower Austria, went to Neuzelle monastery, in the German Brandenburg diocese of Görlitz (formerly East Germany): with the support of the great Austrian Cistercian abbey, the ancient Benedictine abbey of Neuzelle will be reborn after 200 years of closing down. Abbot Maximilian Heim from Heiligenkreuz gave his blessing to his brethren for the reopening of the monastery. The members of the “pioneer group” are father Simeon Wester, formerly prior of the Austrian abbey, who is expected to take the same post in Neuzelle, father Kilian Müller, the bursar, father Philemon Dollinger, who will be in charge of the house and will teach religion in the local schools, and father Aloysius Zierl, sexton and household staff member. “It’s hard for us to let four brethren leave, but at the same time the fact a monastery will be lived in again, thus reviving a spiritual centre, is a pleasure and a sign of hope”, Abbot Heim said. According to plan, another four monks will arrive, so the total will be eight, by September 2018, the month the solemn canonical erection of the “Neuzelle Priory” will take place.
