(Reuters) – France set a temporary new ban on the cultivation of Monsanto‘s MON810 genetically modified maize on Friday, after a previous moratorium was annulled by the country’s top court in November.

 

France said that it was acting conservatively in advance of spring sowings.

Fr Steven Scheier’s Near Death Experience which changed his life


 

Fr Steven Scheier's Near Death Experience which changed his life

Fr Steven Scheier’s Near Death Experience which changed his life (click to access)

On October 18, 1985, as he was traveling from Wichita to his parish in Fredonia, Kansas, Fr. Steven Scheier was involved in a terrible accident: a head-on collision with a pickup truck and with God. He found himself standing before the judgment of Jesus. His sentence from Jesus was “hell.” He says that the Lord took him through his entire life, and showed him how he had failed in his priestly service. At that moment, however, he heard a woman’s voice say, “Son, will you please spare his life and his eternal soul?” The Lord replied, “Mother, he’s been a priest for 12 years for himself and not for me, let him reap the punishment he deserves.” “But Son,’ she said, ‘if we give him special graces and strengths . . . then let’s see if he bears fruit; if not, your will be done.” There was very short pause, after which Jesus said, “Mother, he’s yours.” Sometime afterwards when he was reading the Parable of the Fig Tree (Luke 13) the words leapt off the page to him, especially the order to cut down the fig tree but getting a reprieve of one more year to bear fruit. (Further details in a homily in which I shared Fr Scheier’s story)

Lyrics to Forgiveness
 :

I … I’m a roamer in time
I travel alone
Throughout an endless journey
Home … where is my home
Fragments of a love life
I won’t surrender
When the spirits are calling my name
Then I will have passed all the sorrow and pain
And I’ll go to heaven with you
I’ll lay down my head on your pillow
and ask for forgiveness
Once … I was just a child
Eyes so wide open
You left me broken-hearted
Fly … now I have to fly
Searching for the light
I won’t surrender
When the spirits are calling my name
Then I will have passed all the sorrow and pain
And I’ll go to heaven with you
I’ll lay down my head on your pillow
and ask for forgiveness
I … I’m a roamer in time
I travel alone
Throughout an endless journey
Home … where is my home
Fragments of a love life
I won’t surrender
When the spirits are calling my name
Then I will have passed all the sorrow and pain
And I’ll go to heaven with you
I’ll lay down my head on your pillow
and ask for forgiveness

Mark Twain’s “Satan’s Letter”


From “Letters From The Earth” by Mark Twain

This is a strange place, and extraordinary place, and interesting. There is nothing resembling it at home. The people are all insane, the other animals are all insane, the earth is insane, Nature itself is insane. Man is a marvelous curiosity. When he is at his very very best he is a sort of low grade nickel-plated angel; at is worst he is unspeakable, unimaginable; and first and last and all the time he is a sarcasm. Yet he blandly and in all sincerity calls himself the “noblest work of God.” This is the truth I am telling you. And this is not a new idea with him, he has talked it through all the ages, and believed it. Believed it, and found nobody among all his race to laugh at it.

Moreover — if I may put another strain upon you — he thinks he is the Creator‘s pet. He believes the Creator is proud of him; he even believes the Creator loves him; has a passion for him; sits up nights to admire him; yes, and watch over him and keep him out of trouble. He prays to Him, and thinks He listens. Isn’t it a quaint idea? Fills his prayers with crude and bald and florid flatteries of Him, and thinks He sits and purrs over these extravagancies and enjoys them. He prays for help, and favor, and protection, every day; and does it with hopefulness and confidence, too, although no prayer of his has ever been answered. The daily affront, the daily defeat, do not discourage him, he goes on praying just the same. There is something almost fine about this perseverance. I must put one more strain upon you: he thinks he is going to heaven!

He has salaried teachers who tell him that. They also tell him there is a hell, of everlasting fire, and that he will go to it if he doesn’t keep the Commandments. What are Commandments? They are a curiosity. I will tell you about them by and by.

SPACE MONKEYS THis Day in the Yesteryear: FINALLY SURVIVE A SPACE FLIGHT, HUMANS SOON TO FOLLOW (1959)


Space Monkeys Finally Survive a Space Flight, Humans Soon to Follow (1959)

Several monkeys were launched into space before 1959, but Able and Miss Baker became the first to survive such a trip—a 16-minute flight aboard a US missile. Able, a rhesus monkey, died just days after the flight while undergoing surgery to remove a medical electrode. Miss Baker, a squirrel monkey, lived to the age of 27 and is buried on the grounds of the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, where she spent most of her life. Able was preserved and can now be seen where? More… Discuss

Yvonne, Annette, Cécile, Émilie, and Marie: The Dionne Quintuplets (1934)

As the first set of quintuplets known to have survived infancy, the Dionne sisters of Ontario, Canada, garnered international attention. Sadly, they were exploited almost from birth. As infants, the quintuplets were removed from their parents’ care and made wards of the state. However, rather than protect them from parents it had deemed unfit, the government instead used the girls as a tourist attraction. How many people visited “Quintland” to see the girls over the next nine years? More… Discuss

Citrus Could Combat Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis

In recent years, strains of tuberculosis have emerged that are able to withstand some of the most potent antibiotics on the market, but a fairly low-tech solution could be their undoing. When vitamin C is introduced to tuberculosis bacteria in a test tube, it triggers a process that kills off the bacilli—even drug-resistant strains. It is possible that, when used in conjunction with existing tuberculosis treatments, vitamin C could help root out these hard-to-treat infections. More… Discuss

Horses Seen Through My Eyes…Agatha Kacprzak


in the life and mind of an artist...

Sometimes, when you meet a person, and that person is an artist, you may, or may not have a connection with their work. You might very well love the person, as for their art, it might be a subjective thing. But in the case of Agatha Kacprzak, I immediately identified with what I saw in her artwork.

After you read her story here, you will understand why. As a child myself, my great-uncle would keep shetland ponies that my brother and I could ride. I also remember a picture of a painted pony with my mother and her older brother when they were just kids, so I know my grandfather enjoyed horses as well.

When my father married my mother, they moved to the “city.” Which meant subdivisions with back yards, and no place for ponies or horses. Even so, my dad would take me to the “Trades Day” in…
