Founding of the Illuminati (1776)

The Illuminati were members of a rationalistic society founded in Germany by Adam Weishaupt. Having close affinities with the Freemasons and seemingly organized on a Masonic plan, the group was briefly very popular among German rationalists but had limited influence. The Roman Catholic Church, which Weishaupt left in his youth and rejoined before his death, condemned the Illuminati. In 1785, the Bavarian government dissolved the organization.

Clay Animation

Clay animation is a form of stop-motion animation in which each frame of a film is created and photographed independently using clay figures molded into different positions for each frame. Clay animated films were made in the US as early as 1908 and became something of a fad in 1916, but they were soon overtaken by cartoons. Clay animation is a laborious process, requiring about 21,600 stops for a 30-minute film. How many frames per second are needed to create the illusion of continuous motion?

The health benefits of sweet potatoesinclude their ability to help in healthy weight gain, boost immunity, regulate digestion, treat asthma and bronchitis, and control diabetes. Sweet potatoes also help in treating stomach ulcers and relieving arthritis pain.

What are Sweet Potatoes?

Sweet potatoes are tuberous crops with the scientific name Ipomoea batatas. [1] The plant is a creeper with heart-shaped or lobed leaves. The color of the tuber varies from purple to red to pale yellow and to white, depending upon the variety, the soil type, the climate it grows in, and the available minerals. As the name implies, sweet potatoes are naturally sweet and its flavor can be enhanced when cooked.

The red variety has a drier and harder flesh while the white and yellow sweet potatoes have juicier flesh. The red variety has a characteristic aroma which becomes more prominent when boiled. The variety of taste, textures, and colors can be attributed to its antioxidants and vitamins content. The reddish and orange the colored sweet potatoes are rich in beta carotene, while the purple sweet potatoes are rich in anthocyanin.

Sweet Potatoes Nutrition

According to the USDA, sweet potatoes are a rich source of energy, carbohydrates, and fiber. [2] They also contain a wide array of minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, and magnesium.

They are also packed with other nutrients that include vitamins as well as provide phytosterols, isoflavones, and amino acids such as leucine, glutamic acid, and threonine. A single serving of sweet potato alone will provide more than 400% of your daily dose of vitamin A!

Health Benefits of Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes have many health benefits. Let’s explore them in detail below.

Improve Digestion

The fiber content in sweet potatoes are higher than that of common potatoes and they taste better too! When these two factors are combined with other minerals like magnesium, which is present in these root vegetables, it makes an excellent facilitator for digestion. They are easy to digest since they mainly contain starch. They are soothing to the stomach and intestines, so you can avoid any difficulties in digesting them. Furthermore, fiber feeds the little microbes in our gut and thus help support and promote a healthy gut.

Promote Weight Gain

Sweet potatoes contain good amounts of complex starch, along with healthy vitamins, minerals, and proteins. Moreover, they are very easy to digest. Thus, they provide a lot of energy and are excellent bulk builders for people looking to gain weight.

People who have recently suffered from illnesses, or are self-conscious about being frail or abnormally thin should welcome this news about sweet potatoes since there are no associated side effects, which most of the synthetic bulk building dietary supplements have.

Treat Inflammation

Sweet potatoes have anti-inflammatoryproperties and are primarily due to the presence of beta-carotene, anthocyanins, vitamin C, and magnesium. Beta-carotenes and anthocyanins are active bio-compounds that may exert antioxidative effects when consumed and thereby reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. Research and studieshave shown these compounds to possess potential suppressive anticancer activities and to promote immunity. [3] [4]

Boost Immune System

Sweet potatoes are excellent immune system boosters that defend your body from a wide variety of conditions. [5]As mentioned above, not only are they rich in antioxidant and vitamins, they are also rich in manganese, magnesium, and phosphorus. All these nutrients help in strengthening the immunity and keeping you healthy.

Asthma Friendly Food

A study released by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that there is a positive association between antioxidant-rich diets and clinical asthma outcomes. Sweet potatoes are also one of the foods that are least probably to elicit an allergyreaction, a common inducer of asthma.

Treat Bronchitis

Sweet potatoes are believed to be capable of warming up the body, possibly due to the sweetness and other nutrients that impact body temperature. [6] This property is also beneficial for people suffering from bronchitis, along with its powerful effect on congestion. The concentration of vitamin C, iron, and other nutrients helps cure bronchitis.

Reduce Arthritis Pain

Beta-carotene, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B complex make sweet potatoes a highly important food source for managing arthritis. [7] The water in these tuberous vegetables are boiled can also be applied externally on joints to ease the associated pain of arthritis.

Anti-cancer Properties

Research conducted on laboratory mice by Khalid Asadi et al. [8] from the Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre, New Zealand suggested purple sweet potato anthocyanin-rich diets helped reduce and inhibit tumor growth (Biomed Research International 2015). Chemoprevention trials are needed on humans to understand the anti-cancer properties of sweet potato. [8] Additionally, a study conducted by researchers from Kansas State University, US suggested that anthocyanin-enriched sweet potato may protect against colorectalcancer due to its antiproliferative abilities. [9]

Treat Stomach Ulcers

Research shows that a high fiber diet and a diet rich in vitamin C reduces the risk of developing stomach ulcers. These are good news because sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and vitamin C. They also contain B-complex vitamins, potassium, and calcium are all very effective in curing stomach ulcers. [10] Moreover, the roughage obtained from fiber prevents constipation and the resultant acid formation, thereby reducing the chance of ulcers. [11] Their anti-inflammatory and soothing properties also reduce the pain and inflammation of the ulcers.

Control Diabetes

Contrary to popular belief, sweet potatoes may be an acceptable food for diabetics. Although it is high carbohydrate and sugar, it is considered a low-glycemic food and have a lower glycemic index than regular white potatoes. [1] Cooking methods also alter the glycemic index of sweet potatoes. For example, boiled sweet potatoes have a lower glycemic index compared to roasted sweet potatoes. Of course, that does not mean that diabetics should eat them indiscriminately. The idea is that they can replace rice or white potatoes with sweet potatoes in their diet and cooking them by boiling rather than roasting.

Prevent Dehydration

The fiber or roughage present in sweet potatoes helps the body retain water. [11] This maintains water balance in the body, keeping you hydrated and your cells functioning efficiently.

Other Benefits

Sweet potatoes are effective for helping people quit addictions like smoking, drinking, and taking certain narcotics. They are good for the health of arteries and veins, as they protect their walls against hardening. The high concentration of beta-carotene (an alternative form of vitamin A) and phosphorus are excellent for both ocular and cardiac health. [12]

So, go out and grab a sweet potato for your next meal; they are delicious and nutritious. Yum! Yum! Yam!

Yea, all should go Vegan actually. Our bodies indicate we are herbivores with our long and alkaline intestines. Carnivores and omnivores have short intestines and acidic stomachs. Also the cholesterol and fat in meat and dairy feed heart disease, cancer and diebetes(type 2 especially).

Mike Regan

Homo Sapiens ( people) also have acidic stomachs. The optimal Ph for the enzyme pepsin required for the digestion of proteins is about 3.5. The Ph of the intestines is most likely due to the optimal Ph of the enzymes used to breakdown and absorb nutrients in that area of the gut. So overall I don’t think your argument that this proves we are meant to be herbivores holds water. Also to be able to digest cellulose we would need a ruminant stomach.

In fact, although they are both root vegetables, they belong to two different plant families–the sweet potato is from the morning glory family while the yam is related to the lily. Yams are sweeter than the sweet potato, grow much larger and are also nutritionally inferior.

Watch “The best way to save muscle during weight loss is to have enough protein, exercise strength…” on YouTube


How fast can you lose weight and how much? What is the average weight loss drops rate? What to expect from a diet? These questions are of interest to those who lose weight in the first place. But people’s notion of the speed with which fat burns is not exactly realistic – especially against the background of diets in the style of “-10 per week.” We promise that this is real if you have a little time and starve. And we do not agree with anything that is lower than this figure.

This article is for those who are upset by losing “whole” by 500 grams per week; for those who believe that he is doing something wrong, and his metabolism is too low to lose weight quickly.

Weight loss drops

Weight loss drops – learn how
Before talking about the speed of weight loss drops, it is essential to learn how to distinguish between weight loss and fat loss.

Body weight is not only fat, even the thickest person with clinical obesity. These are organs, bones, muscles, water, glycogen and even the contents of the intestine. Weight loss does not specify what exactly goes.

Maybe the muscles. There may be glycogen and water that it holds. Maybe swelling. Anyone who has met with food poisoning knows how quickly to lose weight by 3-5 kg. But the weight returns, as soon as a person returns to normal life. Thus, all of the above falls under the “loss of excess weight.” But when people think about weight loss drops, they want to get rid of fat. When it comes to the figure, the primary goal is to lose as much fat as possible and keep as many muscles as possible. The rest of the ballast – water, glycogen, and food inside the digestive tract – are things that come and go.

So, by the end of the cycle, a woman suffers from swelling, adding up to 3 kilograms. The amount of glycogen and water it retains depends on the number of carbohydrates in the food. Especially noticeable are weight changes, when a person changes from a non-carbohydrate diet to a normal diet. Or vice versa – removes carbohydrates and the first week of enjoying a large “plumb.”

How do you know if muscle or fat goes away?
Weighing is only one way to control weight loss drops, and it does not show the whole picture. The ratio of fat and muscle in the body is called the body composition. It is this that determines how we look.

A lot of fat and a little muscle is an ordinary fat man. A little fat and a little muscle is a figure of skinny-fat. A lot of fat and a lot of muscles is a massive stocky figure. A little fat and a lot of muscles are what everyone dreams of, a beautiful sports body. Therefore, it is important to monitor not only the arrow on the scales but also the ratio of fat and muscle.This will make it clear what you are losing.

You can find out the composition of the body in many ways – paid and free, accurate and approximate. Among them – biomepedansometry, measurement of skin folds by a caliper.

The best way to save muscle during weight loss is to have enough protein, exercise strength and maintain (or even increase) the working weight. If the working weights gradually decrease, it can be a signal that the muscles become smaller. That’s why it’s important to keep a training diary – it allows you to see progress, increase in weights or drop from a week to a week.

What is the rate of fat loss – normal?
The norm is a loss of 0.5-1.0% of body weight per week. This is a good indicator, which ensures that fat goes away (1). If your weight is 70 kg, then you should expect a loss of 350-700 grams per week. More slender people lose less – on the lower border and even less. People with sizeable excess weight, obesity lose more – up to 2 kg. It looks just pathetic in comparison with the “-10 per week” diet, but this is a reality.

Even if we sit on a hungry carbohydrate diet – cucumber, kefir, celery – fat will still go about the same amount. All other “plumbs” – water, glycogen, edema and intestinal contents. As soon as the body gets rid of “non-fat” ballast, weight loss slows down to the same 0.5-1 kg per week.

    Quick kid quick, so harsh and cynical
    Touches stricken, cold and clinical

    But I don’t like this new, I want the old

    You’ve said such things such things before to rival them
    But it’s how you say ’em now that’s changed

    You go on, yeah, you go on
    You’ll be gone and I’ll be happier

    Your finger’s on the trigger, pull it
    I know you want this suffering to end

    Here I am, where I’ve been
    I’ve walked a hundred miles in tobacco skin,
    And my clothes are worn & gritty.
    And I know ugliness,
    Now show me something pretty.
    I was a dumb punk kid with nothing to lose
    And too much weight for walking shoes.
    I could have died from being boring.
    As for loneliness,
    She greets me every morning.

    At the most I’m a glare,
    I’m the hopeless son who’s hardly there.
    I’m the open sign that’s always busted.

    Spare me your judgments and spare me your dreams
    ‘Cause recently mine have been tearing my seams
    I sit alone in this winter clarity which clouds my mind
    Alone in the wind and the rain you left me
    It’s getting dark darling, too dark to see
    And I’m on my knees, and your faith in shreds, it seems

    Corrupted by the simple sniff of riches blown
    I know you have felt much more love than you’ve shown
    And I’m on my knees and the water creeps to my chest

    But plant your hope with good seeds
    Don’t cover yourself with thistle and weeds
    Rain down, rain down on me
    Look over your hills and be still
    The sky above us shoots to kill
    Rain down, rain down on me

    I begged you to hear me, there’s more than flesh and bones
    Let the dead bury their dead, they will come out in droves

And I bet you are just fine
Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out
Of my life?
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

The storm is coming but I don’t mind.
People are dying, I close my blinds.
All that I know is I’m breathing now.

I want to change the world, instead I sleep.
I want to believe in more than you and me.
But all that I know is I’m breathing.
All I can do is keep breathing.
All we can do is keep breathing
Now,
Now
Now

All that I know is I’m breathing.
All I can do is keep breathing

I want to disappear
Far from the folks I know
I want to get an answer
To why I was even born

No one here can tell me
What’s been haunting me all my life
Well, this rat race has left me limping
‘Cause I balanced on the edge of the knife
Why am I here?
Oh, what should I do?
Well, is this the point I’m trying to prove?
If there’s a God in my head
Then there’s a devil too
How can I tell the difference
When they both claim to be true?
Maybe God is God
Maybe the Devil is me
Well, I just throw my chains on
And tell myself that I’m free
Chains, are they really there?
Is this just in my head?
Well, I’ll just stay in bed
Life sure has its meaning
Over years I have postured the sun
Thieves and preachers robbed me
For many hat that I’ve hung
Now with my heart wide open
I listen to the wind just for a word
Sure, I know it’s futile
But that’s all I have in this world
To look down from the hill and howl at the moon
All the tears I cried never salted any wounds
Well, the earth is so tender and cruel
Well, if you’re not there it’s still so beautiful

Walpurgis Night

People who lived in the Harz Mountains of Germany believed for many centuries that witches rode across the sky on the eve of St. Walpurga’s Day to hold a coven on Brocken Mountain. To frighten them off, they rang church bells, banged pots and pans, and lit torches topped with hemlock, rosemary, and juniper. The legend of Walpurgis Night is still celebrated in Germany, Austria, and Scandinavia with bonfires and other festivities designed to welcome spring by warding off demons, disaster, and darkness.

Bleuler was a Swiss psychiatrist who in 1908 introduced the term “schizophrenia” for the disorder formerly known as dementia praecox. While studying schizophrenic patients, Bleuler concluded that the disease was not one of dementia, a condition involving organic deterioration of the brain, but one consisting of a state of mind in which contradictory tendencies exist together. He argued, against accepted wisdom, that such patients were not incurable. What is the etymology of “schizophrenia”? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Vaticanul a anunțat beatificarea a șapte episcopi români greco-catolici, martiri în prigoana comunistă.

SHARE

Apărută în Transilvania la 1700, prin unirea românilor ortodocși ardeleni cu Roma catolică, Biserica Greco-Catolică a dat personalități de prim rang precum Maniu, Iuliu Hossu, Simion Bărnuțiu, Cipariu, Gheorghe Șincai ori Incențiu Micu Klein.

În 1948, comuniștii și Securitatea au pus în scenă o „revenire” a uniților la ortodoxie, un scenariu diabolic la care niciun episcop greco-catolic nu a consimţit, în ciuda amenințărilor.

Mihai Frățilă, episcop greco-catolic de București, a vorbit într-un interviu pentru Newsweek România despre jertfa celor șapte episcopi și despre importanța anunțului făcut de Vatican.

Newsweek România: Care este semnificația beatificării celor șapte episcopi?

Mihai Frățilă: Beatificarea din partea Bisericii confirmă că Hristos a fost prezent în suferința și jertfa acestor suflete. Actul în sine exprimă o garanție de fidelitate și de prietenie a lui Dumnezeu pentru niște oameni atât de devotați și, mai ales, certitudinea că ei sunt în Cer. Pentru țara noastră, pentru valorile creștine ale poporului român, este într-adevăr un tezaur fără de preț această experiență de sacrificiu, dăruire, nu numai în favoarea lui Dumnezeu și a adevărurilor eterne, ci și în favoarea Binelui.

Istoriile celor șapte arată numeroase încercări de a-l face măcar pe unul dintre ei să cedeze și impresionează lipsa oricărei disponibilități a lor la un compromis, cât de mic.

Nu se cedează în fața unei agresiuni, nu se poate ceda în fața violenței. Fără libertate, ceea ce-i firesc în natura omului dispare. Orice compromis cu o putere ideologică din start atee, diabolică, nu are sens. S-a vorbit mult de compromisuri, de acomodare în acei ani.

38 de preoți au fost aduși sub presiune în octombrie 1948 la Cluj să se dezică de Roma, doi au reușit să fugă. Au fost duși apoi la București. Predecesorul dvs., Vasile Aftenie, episcop vicar de București, a fost să-i vadă.

Dialogul pe care episcopul Aftenie l-a avut atunci cu preoții aduși pentru a glorifica „unificarea” exprimă tristețea evenimentelor regizate cu teroarea Securității. Interesant este că această violentare a conștiințelor nu a omorât în sufletele acestor oameni – niște nefericiți până la urmă – sentimentul profund că nu erau pe calea cea bună. Aici regăsim iarăși partea diabolică a Celui rău care încearcă să te scuze în momentul înfăptuirii păcatului, după care te chinuie toată viața cu un sentiment de culpă pentru a te conduce în disperarea tipic diabolică.

Aici e întotdeauna mâna Răului concret. Episcopul Aftenie a avut îndrăzneala, pentru unii chiar lipsa de prudență, de a se înființa la Athénée Palace, acolo unde acești 36 de preoți au fost cazați. A încercat ca orice bun păstor să meargă pe urma oii care stă să se piardă, a voit să vadă în ce stare sufletească se află.

A constatat, bineînțeles, groaza de Securitate, erau preoți cu familii care nu știau ce li se poate întâmpla de la o oră la alta. Atunci au încercat câțiva dintre ei să-l invite să li se alăture, să nu rămână singuri, totul sub pretextul unui discurs bine construit și aparent logic – este tema cedării „din caritate” ca în filmul „Tăcere”.

Or episcopul le-a spus franc: nu pot să merg contra principiilor care sunt adânc înscrise în inima și în mintea mea. Există o frază a lui Vasile Aftenie de atunci, care străbate timpul: „Credința nu este o cămașă pe care să o dezbraci seara și să o reîmbraci dimineața”.

”Nu se cedează în fața unei agresiuni, nu se poate ceda în fața violenței”

În aceste șapte vieți povestite și de volume care pledează cauza beatificării sunt momente care v-au impresionat anume?

Vasile Aftenie a rămas foarte popular nu pentru că ar fi căutat atenția lumii, ci pentru că era foarte franc, uman, la îndemâna tuturor. O fetiță, jucându-se în curtea bisericii Sfântul Vasile de pe strada Polonă din București, unde slujea și locuia Aftenie, a văzut la stradă doi agenți ai Securității care plănuiau arestarea episcopului în acea noapte. Episcopul era în curtea bisericii împreună cu preoți și cu un student, și fetița le-a comunicat discuția pe care a auzit-o.

Unul dintre vorbitori i-a propus episcopului să se refugieze în acea noapte la credincioși și el i-a răspuns: măi frate, crezi că un general își părăsește armata pentru a se refugia, pentru a ascunde?

Putem spune că ei au trăit ca mărturie pentru toată națiunea, dincolo de frontierele confesionale?

Cu siguranță. Pentru că binele nu e confesional. Există un dialog între Iuliu Maniu și părintele Matei Boilă, nepot al său care și-a dat seama că Maniu știa de fapt că bătălia pentru democrație și pentru libertate era deja pierdută în 1946.

Iuliu Maniu are atunci acel cuvânt formidabil: acest popor al nostru va avea nevoie de oameni care își pun viața pentru valorile supreme, conștienți fiind de puterea răului temporară, pentru ca, în momentul în care întunericul se va spulbera, generațiile ulterioare să înceapă reclădirea morală pe acest sacrificiu al lor.

Același lucru, cu un simț extraordinar de acut al dreptății, îl spunea peste ani cardinalul Alexandru Todea: noi ne-am opus conștient regimului care îți batjocorea libertatea sufletului și am făcut-o nu numai pentru noi, ci pentru a da întregii noastre nații acea demnitate care va fi întotdeauna punct de plecare pentru orice ridicare morală.

Cum au primit cei șapte persecuția?

Și-au dat seama că pentru o perioadă bună de timp se va dezintegra tot ceea ce însemna așezământ de libertate, de respect pentru credință, de democrație.

Există un dialog între reprezentantul Papei la București, nunțiul Gerard O’Hara, cu câțiva preoți care deja se ascundeau și încercau să supraviețuiască, schimbându-și foarte des domiciliul și pe care îi încuraja spunând că lucrul acesta, permis fiind de Dumnezeu, nu-i va lipsi de ajutorul și de susținerea harului.

JERTFĂ Șase din cei șapte episcopi greco-catolici care nu au cedat presiunilor comuniștilor de a se lepăda de credința lor.

Iată, deci, aceeași necesitate pentru a se identifica în exemplul pe care Fiul lui Dumnezeu l-a trăit, merge la moarte în mod conștient, și moare nu pentru că i se ia viața, ci pentru că El o lasă în favoarea celorlalți.

Tot în corespondența între Nunțiatură și aceste suflete bătute de furtuna persecuției avem un exemplu unde același Gerard O’Hara transmite părintelui Chinezu, protopopul Bucureștiului, închis în lagărul de la mănăstirea Căldărușani, următorul mesaj: Sfântul Părinte ar fi foarte mulțumit dacă ai accepta episcopatul ca jertfă în favoarea sufletelor.

Biserica greco-catolică era la apogeu în 1918, avea 1,5 milioane de credincioși în 1948, a fost împuținată radical de atunci.

E bine să amintim aici metafora naturii pentru a înțelege un aspect profund din perspectiva credinței. Este suficient o sămânță să se salveze. Acea sămânță, la rândul ei pusă în pământ, dă naștere mai multor semințe care, la rândul lor, se vor multimplica de câte ori va fi nevoie. Martirii efectiv s-au dăruit lui Dumnezeu. Și, în felul acesta, chiar dacă doar unul, doi, trei, puțini trăiesc această legătură cu Dumnezeu din străfundurile lor, cu toată energia, cu toată puterea lor, Dumnezeu își împlinește lucrarea, pentru a face în așa fel încât binele să devină viral; acolo unde un om se străduiește pentru bine, el nu face altceva decât să semene binele și mai mult în jurul său.

Beatificarea va fi celebrată la Blaj
de Papa Francisc, pe 2 iunie 2019

Sub Francisc, ca regulă, sanctificările au fost făcute de Papă, nu și beatificările. Cum va fi?

Beatificarea va fi celebrată la Blaj de Sfântul Părinte. Turmei mici i-a fost hărăzită Împărăția pe baza acelui adevăr că este suficient un bob de grâu pentru a face apoi să renască puterea credinței. Acel oraș a fost desfigurat sub comunism. Tot ceea ce fusese gloria acelui orășel, pe care Eminescu îl numea fără vanitate Mica Romă, ne pune în situația de a vedea cum își scrie Dumnezeu istoriile cu oamenii.

Nu e suficient să ai putere, nu e suficient să fii adulat, nu stă viața și valoarea omului în circuitul financiar, în cifre și mulțimi, ci stă, iată, în istorii de jertfă puse împreună. Avem prezența episcopului Romei în acest orășel de unde Heliade Rădulescu spunea că „le-a răsărit soarele românilor”.

La 2 iunie 2019, la 20 ani după vizita papei Ioan Paul II, Blajul celebrează nu numai bucuria confirmării de credință a urmașului lui Petru, dar primește consacrarea jertfel lui Hristos dintr-o generație memorabilă. De altfel, numele maghiar înainte de 1918, tradus mot-a-mot, era „Satul Blajului”, „Satul lui Blaj”. Românii nu aveau voie să stea în orașele Ardealului, cel mult la margine.

Și acolo, în afara marilor orașe, s-a format opțiunea noastră pro-occidentală sau, cum ziceau oamenii vremii, pentru „Apusul civilizat”.

S-a văzut la momentul Marii Uniri din 1918 care a fost beneficiul unei „ortodoxii occidentale”, dacă pot să spun așa. Fiindcă, în formele sale de manifestare creștină, Biserica Română Unită cu Roma e ca o biserică ortodoxă, dar, iată, una care a știut să preia nu numai o forma mentis occidentală.

Este clar o viziune despre lume și istorie pe care această Biserica Unită cu Roma, prin apartenența ei la Biserica Universală și la lumea occidentală, a adus-o în Transilvania. Prin acest spirit al catolicității, Biserica Română Unită a oferit o învățătură de credință care a dat o consistență mult mai evidentă însăși rezistenței din vremea regimului comunist.

Gândiți-vă la Polonia unde, la fel, prezența Bisericii Catolice a fost un far nu numai pentru cei care erau credincioși. A fost o forță de reacțiune extraordinară pe care regimul totalitar nu a putut să o înfrângă tocmai pentru că astfel de oameni, precum și cei șapte episcopi români martiri, au știut să folosească orice dar de la Dumnezeu în slujba semenilor.

Este tipologia omului de altar care se pune în slujba celorlalți. Din păcate, nu realizăm că preotul nu poate fi un funcționar sacru înveșmântat în aurituri. Este cel care trebuie să mențină aprinsă în popor flacăra acestei disponibilități spre jertfă în favoarea voinței lui Dumnezeu și a respectului pentru celălalt.

MIHAI FRĂȚILĂ, episcop greco-catolic de București.

Beatificare la Blaj

Cauza beatificării celor șapte episcopi a fost deschisă în 1994.

Vasile Aftenie, episcop vicar pentru București, a murit în 1950, după o anchetă dură de aproape un an în beciurile Ministerului de Interne.

Valeriu Traian Frențiu, episcop de Oradea, a murit în 1952, la închisoarea din Sighet.

Ioan Suciu, administrator apostolic al Mitropoliei Blajului, a murit în 1953, la Sighet.

Tit Liviu Chinezu, hirotonit în clandestinitate în 1949, a murit în 1955, la Sighet.

Ioan Bălan, episcop de Lugoj, a murit în 1959, la mănăstirea Ciorogârla, unde era cu domiciliu obligatoriu.

Alexandru Rusu, episcop de Maramureș, a murit în 1963, în închisoarea din Gherla. Ispășea o condamnare pe viață primită în 1957 pentru „instigare și înaltă trădare”.

Iuliu Hossu, episcopul de Cluj-Gherla care a citit Rezoluția de la Alba Iulia din 1918, a supraviețuit Sighetului și a fost până la sfârșitul vieții închis cu domiciliu obligatoriu la mănăstirea Căldărușani. A fost făcut în secret Cardinal în 1969 și a murit în 1970.

“Vrei sa ne intalnim sambata seara”
As vrea intr-o seara sa ne intalnim
Dar nu stiu cand e mai bine sa iesim
Lunea n-are nici un rost
Marti e rau ca merge prost
Miercuri stii si tu ca e zi de post
Joi mi-e imposibil sa te intalnesc
Ca mananac cu un unchi pe care il mostenesc
Vineri nu se poate, nu
Ca postesc si eu si tu
Numai sambata putem sa ne dam randevu
Si daca ne place
Stam chiar pana in zori de zi

Ca duminica putem dormi

Vrei sa ne intalnim sambata seara
Intr-o carciumioara la sosea
Unde canta-un pian si o vioara
Si unde nu ne vede nimenea
Perechi, perechi de amorezati stau la masa
Si nu vad nimic in jurul lor
Gurite iau drept consumatii
Ce le pasa
Daca isi fac juraminte de amor
Vrei sa ne intalnim sambata seara, iara
Intr-o carciumioara la sosea (x2)
