Author Ariel S. Levi Gualdo . . PDF format Print article . The beginning of the gospel of Jesus, Christ, Son of God. As it is written in the prophet Isaiah: "Here, before thee I send my messenger: he will prepare your way. The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths ", There was John, who baptized in the wilderness and proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. They flocked to him all the country of Judea and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And they were baptized by him in Jordan, confessing their sins. John was camel hair suit, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. E proclaimed: "After me he is the one who is stronger than me: I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the laces of his sandals. I have baptized you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit " [MC 1, 1-18] . . Saint Christmas 2017, imminent reopening of Bottega of politically correct … On this Second Sunday of Advent, in the opening sentence of the Holy Gospel of the Blessed Marco Evangelista: "The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Son of God. As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: Here, I send my messenger before thy face, You shall prepare thy way ", It is enclosed our remote start, our past, our present and our future. In the message, moving the living word of God is the totality of our being present and the future of our becoming and eternal. It is the mystery of Christ as God indicated Entirely the doctrine of the Holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church Augustine, recognized as the most fruitful point of his reflection on the Church, who moves up from the reflection of the Blessed Apostle Paul who said, "You are the body of Christ and individually members of it" . . Essential, and at times shady, almost as wild locusts and honey when he ate, is the figure of John the Baptist said, the precursor. Man is not born from nothing, or end their lives dying in a quiet bed seized with senile natural death. John, who loved truth and justice, He was sacrificed for a dance of Salome; and his head, in the name of those political reasons which sometimes seems you can never say no, especially when damage the truth and justice, was severed net and placed on a tray for the perverse joy of Herodias demanded that the gift . A gift does not denied, indeed readily granted, because it depended on the maintenance of so many fragile balance; no matter if immoral and perverse, what only mattered was keeping, yesterday and today, outside the church as inside the Church. . Saint Christmas 2017, imminent reopening of Bottega of politically correct ... Blessed Precursor It completes an ancient and long prophetic season marked by equally extraordinary men: the great prophets of Israel. But what in common men like Jeremiah, finished stoned. Isaiah, sentenced to death, It seems to have been sawn in two. Daniele, thrown to the lions ... and the Baptist? All these men, servants also of truth and justice, John is not dead as of quiet natural death, among them they were united by intuition, a gift wrapped for instinct nature of every man, that if developed by the touch of God's grace can bring anyone to perceive and see beyond time and space constraints of this, in which we often do prisoners instead of free creatures, because if our existential space we develop freedom, our lives will be a continuing emancipation, Romanistic in the sense of emancipatio, ie liberation from slavery, not to be confused with many other false emancipation, including those of the seventies of the twentieth century, that behind excuses of freedom they have often delivered to the worst forms of slavery. Or just rethink, going back in time, the so-called era of Enlightenment, when they cried Freedom, Equality, Fraternity, and at the conclusion of these proclamations he is screaming "or death» [or death]. Indeed, in the great revolutionary France imbecility, to late eighteenth century, they are cutting off their heads on the guillotine in industrial quantities, summarily and without trial. But it, it is clear: everything always happened in the name of sacrosanct ... Freedom. . If we remain closed in our space, or if we throw ourselves thrown to false emancipation, thereby we reduce us to the limitations of that devastating "everything at once" which for years I constantly recall and that erases in us all yearning for the eternal. Here, then, that our existence is a prison, if anything, golden, but still a prison, still a bondage. And there is no worse slavery than that lives without even realizing it more because hidden behind false pretenses of freedom. . Another element on which today more than ever we should talk in depth, It is the concept of wilderness. From the Word of God we have just heard: "The voice of one crying in the wilderness". Let's think about what kinds of deserts deaf and dumb you are forced to live today in the noise, between the optical fibers that run unseen and super technological computer networks of our world of real-time news, not to mention artificial intelligence that will end in time with the completely annihilate the human intelligence. Yet ever, like today, man was just, in these our modern deserted spaces of the soul; totally different from the deserts in which man retreated in the past, to find himself and feel the breath of God's caress on him. . Saint Christmas 2017, imminent reopening of Bottega of politically correct … What sense can have the words of the prophet Isaiah reported by the Evangelist: "Prepare the way of the Lord, his paths straight?» . This is a clear sentence, undoubtedly. But only apparently clear. There is also a popular wise saying that paraphrasing this passage of the Holy Gospel's wit: "God straightens crooked streets». What that his grace ago and several times throughout history has shown to. In this case, but, the person called to account, or rather work, it seems that both the man. God needs of trails suitable for walking among men who, to meet his Divine Majesty, They must work to straighten the paths that anyway, all’origine, God had plotted rights. We are wishing we can add that sometimes the streets are not even the most crooked, but much more and much worse: apparently the roads are not exactly the most! It does not exist because the street is that great gift of grace but it can be destroyed by the free will of man through sin. . I admit to realize to be a priest and a theologian of those defined today unfashionable, because as some say I still speak of sin, "the old way", in our contemporary Church now made peace, Love hearts palpitating, birds chirping in the face of vegan cats who pine for emotional vegetarian passions before their song. Unfortunately I always believe that original sin is instead a fact and not an allegorical metaphor. But wanting it gets worse: I always believe the existence of God's judgment, I believe in Heaven and Hell to Purgatory. I think when we profess "... and one day come again in glory to judge the living and the dead", the Divine and Supreme Judge will not say to men: "Come on, all are safe!». Therefore, in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul Blessed, it is my duty to tell you: . "Even if we or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel other than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed! We have already said and now repeat: if any man preach a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be accursed! Indeed, It is perhaps the favor of men that I intend to earn, or rather that of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, do not be a servant of Christ!» . . If so preach the opposite of what is contained in the Holy Gospel It would mean that I would like the "blind guides"  who have lost the way of God to follow the ways of men, unmindful that Christ God warns us in chapter VII of the Gospel of the Blessed Matthew Evangelista: . "Enter through the narrow gate, for wide is the gate and broad the way that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:; How narrow is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and few there be that find!». . Saint Christmas 2017, imminent reopening of Bottega of politically correct … How many ancient streets They have disappeared over time, swallowed up by the earth, by vegetation, from urban and architectural layers superimposed on each other? Just think of our ancient Rome, to which they were linked since ancient road networks spread throughout Europe and by which one could reach the ancient capital of Roman Gaul, which is the current France, as from Phrygia, the central Anatolia which is in present-day Turkey. Those ancient streets, most of which no longer exist, But in the past there were. Roads that were not only real, but also functional; and for longer periods of time they were crossed. Today, in addition to large stretches of motorway, our capital is also served by two international airports and rail access to high-speed trains. And yet, much more than yesterday, Today it really reaches the world seems unlikely that from Rome and from various suburbs of the world easily reaches Rome, because for some 'time it seems that Rome is offering its wide doors and spacious highways of nine very easy lane to go, while our natural way Christological, which it is narrow and full of obstacles, finally it brings us to a narrow access port. . The street, in addition to being a viable trait that leads to various destinations, It is therefore also element, sign and symbol of our memory. No coincidence that Christ God compares himself to a road: . "Thomas said,: "Lord, we do not know where you are going and how can we know the way?”. Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth and the life ' " . . Saint Christmas 2017, imminent reopening of Bottega of politically correct … When man ceases to see the way God in Christ, as you will ever get to the truth and the life? Because to live in the truth and win the prize of eternal life you need to recognize, accept and follow Christ, God as a way. Here then sometimes, the street, in order to be prepared it requires a careful and laborious recovery, this thing that at the time John the Baptist intuited, so that from the desert drew the first recovery path leading to the purification and repentance of sins, then the preparation announcing: . "After me he is the one who is stronger than me: I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the laces of his sandals. I have baptized you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit " . . The opening words of the Holy Gospel "The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus, Christ, Son of God", Also enclose another meaning mystagogical: The Holy Gospel is in itself and by itself a beginning endless. In which of the Holy Gospels it is in fact written, or even only vaguely implied, the word "end"? He writes Blessed Evangelist Matthew: . "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And here, I am with you always, until the end of the world " . . writes Blessed Marco Evangelista: . "And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it " . . writes Blessed Luca Evangelista: . "While he blessed them, he parted from them and was carried up, in the sky. And they fell before him; then they returned to Jerusalem with great joy and were continually in the temple blessing God " . . The Evangelist John, in his conclusion does not fail to point out: . "There are still many other things which Jesus, if they were written every one, I think that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written " . Saint Christmas 2017, imminent reopening of Bottega of politically correct … In a different way the Evangelists, at the end of their drafts do not put the word "end" in a story, but that story outline that contains the mystery of Revelation which starts early: ... now start from, make disciples and baptize  … then they went out and began to preach everywhere  ... And after the Lord ascended to heaven they returned to Jerusalem and began to always go to the temple to praise God . Of course: this is just a small part of everything that really happened, as stated in the conclusion of his Gospel the Blessed Giovanni Evangelista . . The Gospel proceeds from beginning to beginning until the Second Coming that will open up new eternal beginning: God, who bursts in human experience so real, Physical and body through the incarnation. Until you reach, Christology after the whole experience that seems to culminate with the shame of the cross, the upturned stone of a tomb that does not mark the end of a story with a happy ending, but the beginning of the true history of mankind that as Christ is risen. "For we ', says the Blessed Apostle Peter in the second reading we have heard in this Liturgy of the Word: "According to his promise, We look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness " . And only then will, as announced by the Prophet Isaiah, that . "The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the kid; the calf and the young lion shall browse together, and a child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together. The lion shall eat straw, like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole; the child put his hand on the adder's lair. No longer will act unjustly nor destroy in all my holy mountain, because the wisdom of the Lord will fill as the waters cover the sea " . . Saint Christmas 2017, imminent reopening of Bottega of politically correct … None of this can understand the idolaters of new pagan religion vegan, to name some leaders among the numerous expressions of modern paganism. If in fact today the lion tears the kid and if he devours, It is because Adam and Eve were altered and subverted his sin with the perfect nature created by God, leaving us inherited a sinful nature from their sin . This nature will return to its pristine perfection after the Last Judgment, certainly not after protests Religious fundamentalists vegans, atheists and pagans, that give crazy in front of cattle, or in front of other farms that commit “great crimes”, those they say are the cheese production, dairy products and eggs. Incidentally: has anyone ever seen a fundamentalist religious vegan, always ready to rend their garments for the suffering of a hen forced to produce eggs, straziarsi in pain before to hospitals where they suppress the lives of innocent human being through the abomination of abortion, crying even more vengeance before God, compared to a poor cow forced to produce milk? . So that will be realized "new earth and new heaven", God certainly does not want viewers, but protagonists builders, to wet this new land with the water dripping from the eternal sources justice. The love of God is indeed justice and justice is the most perfect expression of God's infinite love, It is in fact the union of love and justice of God that comes to life his mercy. He who loves, It is always right; and justice finds meaning and expression of his love creature created in the image and likeness of the Living God, to which the sacrifice of Christ and regeneration at its new baptism cleanses us from the ancient guilt of original sin of Adam: . "... if by the fall of one, death reigned through that one man, much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. How, then, for the fault of a single one it was upon all men to condemnation, so also through the work of justice of one it pours upon all men to justification of life. Similarly, as for the one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of one the many will be made righteous " . . This is the spirit by which the Advent season it is our Christian duty to prepare for Christmas. And at Christmas, it should be remembered, we relive the mystery of the Incarnation of the Word of God in a world, and in particular in an old is decadent Europe, Today more than ever, more and more distant from God. And, when they close the doors to God, always open the doors to the modern pagan religions, including the just mentioned religious fundamentalism vegan. . … and the workshop of scristianizzante politically correct, The step towards the blasphemy industry gaystapo It is always very short … I fear that this year, as in recent years, we will have to suffer and put up messages and statements already heard that will resonate proclamations type: "Even Jesus was a poor child of the poor", What among other untrue, as in the past I explained  [see article WHO and video lessons WHO]. But above all, we will return to hear the Christmas Holy listed as: "Festival of peace and friendship among peoples", "Feast of solidarity", "The other is the celebration" ... in a swarm of crib representations that are a triumph of mangers built into barges, Bambinelli of Jesus lying on a raft with a lifeline around his waist, while Joseph and Mary both wearing life jackets. For several years now, the cribs are gone pastors, replaced by Coast Guard officers and operators of centers for real or alleged refugees. But wanting is not much worse, because it has already happened that in deference to the modern "dogma" of the culture of death introduced by the theory of gender - which we know is an absolute faith much higher than that on the Incarnation of the Word of God -, have already placed in some crib two Giuseppe, to follow along with various other amenities more or less scristianizzanti and not of sacrilegical infrequently. . Perhaps it should remember that during the Solemnity of Christmas, in all our churches proclaim again the Prologue of the Holy Gospel of Blessed John the Evangelist, which reads: "In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God ". In no church whole Orbe Catholica you can read, in accordance with the increasingly fashionable and politically correct scristianizzante: "In the beginning was the poor, and the poor was the refugee, and the fugitive was with God, and the fugitive claimed him jus soli from the columns of Future s L'Osservatore Romano ». . And yet, Also this It had been anticipated: . "Day, indeed, when they will not endure sound doctrine;, but, having itching ears they, will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, refusing to listen to the truth to look at fairy tales»  […] "Before that day will be a falling away and will be revealed the man of lawlessness, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, up to sit in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God ". . … and the workshop of scristianizzante politically correct, The step towards the blasphemy industry gaystapo It is always very short … Only after the end of time and the beginning of his kingdom will have no end, It will be that "the wolf shall dwell with the lamb ' , while for now, through impervious streets and narrow doors toward salvation, Christ, God has warned us very clearly and accurately: "I send you out as sheep among wolves" . And once sent as "sheep among wolves", the sheep, that the continuation of this warning are invited by Christ God to be "wise as serpents and harmless as doves" , with wolves should not just treat and haggling, species all'accomodante downward and to the sellout, because the wolf does not build bridges, nor should he go looking for points of union or communion. It is needless to say that the sheep to the wolf: "Now, dear wolf, We do not condemn you, indeed we want to talk with you and look for what unites us and not what divides us ". This is not possible, because the sheep can not become wolves and wolves can not become sheep, but mainly because the wolf is not good, It never has. It will return to be good until after the Last Judgment, when, after the end of time, the new beginning "the wolf shall dwell with the lamb ', But not before then, even under the new wickedness of that misericordismo destructive that caresses the wolves and sheep clubs is the sheepfold of Christ the Redeemer Good Shepherd. . the Island of Patmos, 10 December 2017 . __________________ NOTE  1ª Letter of St. Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians: 12, 27.
