Lego Jesus by Legozilla VBS Mosaic

Jesus said, “Which of you, having 100 white pieces, would not spend several minutes to retrieve the one lost under the couch?”

Jesus said, “The wicked shall go off to eternal torment, where the Legos on the carpet are never picked-up.”

Jesus asked the greedy Pharisees, “What do you read on this piece?” They replied, “Lego.” Jesus said, “Go, and do likewise.”

Prophesies & typologies are the 12 by 1 connectors between the Old & New Testaments.

Mary asked, “How can this be, rectangles connected with circles?” The angel replied, “Nothing shall be impossible for God.”

Jesus, Lord of Piece, have mercy on me. Mary, Queen of Piece, pray for me.

China: An Evil Empire November 2, 2015

Filed under: Catholicism,Funny,Politics,Religion,Sad :-(,Stuff,Unconscionable actions — Fr. Victor Feltes @ 8:00 am

Following in the footsteps of Dr. J. Evans Pritchard, Ph.D., I suggest that if a country’s score for iniquity were plotted along the horizontal of a graph, and its importance were plotted on the vertical, then calculating the total area would yield the measure of that country’s merited infamy. If charted, China’s rectangle of infamy would rank among the largest in the world.

Recently, the Chinese government reported that a 94-year-old, Roman Catholic bishop, Cosmas Shi Enxiang, had died in their custody. He had not been seen in public since he was detained on Good Friday of 2001, 14 years ago. Perhaps the government feared him speaking out against their one-child policy, their forced abortions and forced sterilizations, or their persecutions of Christians. This faithful bishop spent around half of his long life in Chinese prisons and labor camps. He died a white martyr for Jesus Christ.

By 2020, China plans to enroll all its people into a vast national database. This information will be distilled to output individual scores (between 350 and 950) to rate each citizen’s political loyalty. Favored behaviors will be rewarded, with penalties given for disfavored actions, opinions, and relationships. I wonder if the huge, red dragon that is China will soon be requiring its people to maintain at least a mid-range score of 666 in order to buy or sell things?

This pope is full of surprises.

 

 

It’s kinda hard to believe you hadn’t seen this already, huh? (The impressed Cardinal Wuerl also has a more subtle, Prestige-level trick of his own: appearing in this clip in two places at once.)
