Chile Government Releases UFO Study of Photos...

The government office investigating UFOs in Chile has released an analysis of two high quality photos showing what appear be genuine unidentified flying objects above a copper mine in that country.  They actually have a committee who studies this shit:  The Committee for the Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (CEFAA).  It is responsible for the analysis of selected reports of unexplained aerial phenomena in Chilean airspace, most of them from pilots and aviation personnel.

The photos were taken at the Collahuasi copper mine, more than 14,000 feet above sea level in the Andean plateau in the far north of Chile. An extremely remote location with low oxygen levels and unusually clear skies, the area is desolate and inhospitable. The Collahuasi mine produces copper concentrate, copper cathodes and molybdenum concentrate from three open-pit mineral deposits.

Four technicians - professionals specializing in electricity, electronics, and fluid control - were working there in April, 2013. They witnessed a disc-shaped object which approached slowly and was present for more than an hour, moving around in different positions and hovering at about 2000 feet. One technician took pictures with his Kenox Samsung S860 camera. The strange object made no sound, and eventually moved away towards the East.

The witnesses decided not to tell anybody because of the negative associations they had with UFO sightings, and therefore had every intention of always keeping the sighting private. But some months later, the photographer casually showed the pictures to the chief engineer at the mine, who asked for copies. The engineer sent the images to the CEFAA and provided the agency with information reported to him by the witnesses. He too has requested anonymity.

The report states that the witnesses described the phenomenon as "a flattened disc, of brilliant color, with a diameter of 5 to 10 meters [16 to 32 feet].  It performed ascending, descending and horizontal movements in short lengths, about 600 meters above the ground." The witnesses had the impression that the object was under intelligent control.


The first image, enlarged and filtered, shows a solid object reflecting the sunlight, the report states. It adds that the object could be emitting it's own energy as well, due to the high temperature shown in the image (the black area).

The study concludes that "It is an object or phenomenon of great interest, and it can be qualified as a UFO."

UFO photobombs NASA again!

A few weeks ago we reported how a UFO photobombed a NASA video.  Well, it happened again, this time there is no doubt something is out there.  Watch the video below as it slowly fades in and then fades out.  Of course, NASA is saying nothing.

All are called to be saints'


An Angel Frees the Souls of Purgatory (circa 1610), oil on canvas by artist Ludovico Carracci (15551619).

THE soul is all that matters. Every person is created in the image of God. He is body and soulcorporeal and spiritual. In Genesis 2:7 this reality is expressed: "The Lord God formed man out of the clay of the ground, and blew into his nostrils, the breath of life, and so man became a living being." At baptism, the Holy Spirit fills the spiritual vacuum in the soul caused by original sin.

This divine life, called sanctifying grace, is snapped by deliberate rejection and willful disobedience of God through mortal sin, and can be regained through the sacrament of penance. Death is the end of man's life on earth. Man will "not return to other earthly lives." The soul is separated from the body and will receive a particular judgement.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC), 1022, states: "Each man receives his eternal retribution in his immortal soul at the very moment of his deatheither entrance into the blessedness of heaven immediately or through a purification or immediate and everlasting damnation." The word saint is derived from sanctus, a Latin word for holy. Thus, every Christian, united with Christ in baptism, in the original meaning of the word is considered a saint.

All are called to be saint During the early Christian communities, Saint Paul called all followers of Christ saints. He speaks of "saints at work" in Ephesus 1:1 and saints in Achaia in 2 Corinthians 1:1. In the "Apostles Creed," the phrase "communion of saints" infers a fellowship and interconnectedness among all souls where the Holy Spirit dwells. These include souls in heaven, the triumphant church; souls in purgatory, the suffering church; and the souls of the living on earth, the pilgrim church. The Church honors the holy people in heaven on All Saints' Day. These saints are specifically honored, too, on their feast days. The Church honors as well "the little people: those obscure, uncanonized, unbeatified, uncelebrated and anonymous saints" who will  never be named in the liturgical calendar.

But these residents of heaven, according to Fr. Nil Guillemette in The Cedars of Lebanon "knew how to love, accepted to die day by day to their natural selfishness and who, through the ordinary tasks of an ordinary life, lived with extraordinary beauty The loves of the saints can be the models of Christian. Mother Angelica, the Franciscan nun who founded Eternal Word Television (EWTN), the largest Catholic television network, would often say, "We are all called to be saints. Do not miss this opportunity. Souls in purgatory

Because of the spiritual nature of the soul, it craves with indescribable longing for God, but the desire is unsatisfied, aware that it has to be purified in a place called purgatory.


Mother Church considers the souls in purgatory poor and holy. They are poor because they cannot see God and cannot help themselves. They are holy because they can no longer commit sin and are fully aware heaven awaits them. The living can pray for the souls in purgatory, make the Way of the Cross, give alms and do works of charity. To pray and offer expiatory sufferings for them is the "highest act of supernatural charity." Souls in purgatory cannot pray for themselves but they can pray for the living. The Doctrine of Purgatory was formulated by the Catholic Church in the Councils of Florence and Trent in reference to scriptural texts which "speaks of cleansing fire to attain the beatific vision of God," according to the CCC, 10311032.

Beatific vision in the words of Leo J. Trese in Faith Explained is "God possessing the soul and the soul possessing God in a unity so ravishingly complete as to be infinitely beyond the ecstacy of the most perfect human marriage. . . so shattering as to annihilate the soul, if God Himself did not give the soul the strength it needs to endure the happiness that is God." Saints and spiritual writers stress that the souls themselves decide their "voluntary punitive reparation to restore friendship with God." The fires in purgatory is "equal to the fires of hell," Saint Thomas of Aquinas declares. And contact with the fires is "more dreadful than all sufferings of this earth." Saint Augustine elucidates, the fire is "more penetrating, more dreadful than anything we can see, or feel, or conceive in this life." The Holy church remembers the suffering souls in purgatory: "Welcome into your kingdom our departed brothers and sisters, and all who have left in this world on your friendship," is a prayer said in every Mass.

Prayer for souls in purgatory This prayers, as revealed to Saint Gertrude releases 10,000 souls in purgatory everytime it is recited: "Eternal Father, I offer thee the most Precious Blood of thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with all the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the souls in purgatory for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, those in my home and within my family. Santiago is a former regional director of the Department of Education National Capital Region. She is currently a faculty member of Mater Redemptoris College, Laguna.https://archive.org/details/WolfBlood1925

Wednesday

Witchcraft (The Principles).

The only law of witchcraft is The Threefold Law:
Everything you do comes back to you three times.

Earth Magic works Threefold:
The Work is stated and performed in the World of Form,
It goes out into the Invisible World,
And comes back to manifest in the World of Form.

All work is for the good of all only
And according to free will--
Thus harming none. 

One cannot be a witch "part-time."  By definition, witchcraft is a way of life and permeates all of life.  A witch lives by these Principles all through every chosen witchcraft lifetime, away and asleep, in work, in deed, in thought, and in intent.

This means: no cursing, no harming.  This means: no stated negatives, and all negatives taken out of The Law. (The Law of Cause and Effect.)

This does not mean to deny the Dark.  We acknowledge the dark, use the dark positively, strip it of all negative power, transcend it, and Turn it To Good.

Based on the wisdom of Marion Weinstein.

The Pope's Mistress

Pope Alexander VI (1431 - 1503) divided the Atlantic in half in his famous bull giving most of the western New World to the Spaniards and Africa to the Portuguese.  He also found time for women.

Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia (soon to be Pope Alexander VI) was fifty-seven years old when he chose gorgeous fifteen-year-old Giulia Farnese as his mistress in 1489.  She had spectacular long golder hair which in a few years would reach all the way to the marble floors of the Vatican.  Giulia was already married to Orsino Orsini.  "He was a good husband," states papal antihistorian E. R. Chamberlin.  "He was blind in one eye, he knew how to wink with the other."

It became an open secret in Rome that the pope had chosen this giddy, joyous, spectacularly beautiful teenager as his mistress.  Her friends called her "La Bella"; the people dubbed her the "Bride of Christ."  To call it an "open secret" is perhaps too cautious; everyone knew, and very few cared -- except the pope's master-of-ceremonies, a German, Johann Burchard, who kept a diary that has survived.  "From the greatest to the least," wrote Burchard of the top church officials in 1491, "they took on concubines in the fashion of marriage, and indeed they did this publicly."  He added: "Unless God provides, this corruption will spread to monks and those in religious orders, although the convents of Rome have almost become all brothels even now, since no one forbids it."

In these modern days of reputable papacy, whose temporal power controls an area the size of a college campus, it is very difficult to get a handle on these Renaissance popes.

They fought wars, had mistresses, fathered bastards, sold Church offices, and yet at the same time mouthed pieties.  This was accepted behavior.

Giulia Farnese (1474 - 1524) attended the wedding of the pope's thirteen-year-old daughter, Lucrezia
Borgia; Giulia was not skulking in the corners, but dazzling in the front of the wedding party.  Lucrezia, whose long white gown's train was borne by a young black, entered the appointed room in the papal palace, and Giulia Farnese and 150 other women followed her to where the pope sat on the great papal throne with eleven cardinals.  the doors were shut for about an hour to the male wedding guests.  Burchard -- a stickler for protocol -- records of the women that "despite my admonishments, none of them genuflected, except for the pope's daughter and a few others close to her."  He adds, though, that later when the pope's son kissed his father's foot, all the 150 women followed suit, performing the traditional greeting of kissing the cross on the papal slipper.

The men were allowed to enter about halfway through the ceremony, which ended with a huge celebration.  The pope offered up fifty silver urns of sweets, about one hundred pounds of expensive candy.  A miffed Burchard reports that "for a sign of great happiness the candies were throuwn into the bosoms of many women, especially the beautiful ones," adding, testily, "and this was done for the honor and praise of God and the Roman church."


Giulia Farnese bore the pope two sons, which he acknowledged openly, and one of her descendants from their union became Pope Innocent X (in office 1644 - 1655).  More immediately, her brother Alessandro Farnese was made cardinal, and wags called him the "Petticoat Cardinal," that is, until he bacame Pope Paul III (in office 1534 -1549). Giula was portrayed in several religious paintings, including a Transfiguration by Raphael.  Some scholars also contend that she was the model for the Virgin Mary painted by Pinturicchio in the papal apartments.

peaceful, loving, change is coming!

The world is changing, and the change is good.  That thought came to me this morning in my Buddhist chants/prayers.  ...
