the ring of who----what? priests believing they have special powers ... believing they are of a higher calling---above others? this is a DANGEROUS BELIEF SYSTEM! who/what teaches this?!

WHO/WHAT TAUGHT THIS AND SET SELF UP TO UNDERMINE THE CHRIST? 

answer: the roman frickin' catholic church ... who else?


read Matthew and tell the world: now, where did they miss the message on this? they did not seem to have any difficulty picking and choosing in their ignorance and self-centeredness in other passages ... but this?


23 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:

All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,

And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,

And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.

19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?

20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.

21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.

22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.

32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

and so it shall be ...

any particular reason why rome is parading this? first of all, they have not the AUTHORITY in GOD'S NAME to saint ... it's inconceivable as they know not the MIND OF GOD ... right? of course, they can canonize through their dogmatic stream bed and parade this as they clearly do for SELF-AGENDA ... which has nothing to do with PURPOSE OF GOD ... but what we see is a self-denial in their promotion of said individual ... not genuine forgiveness. this is blasphemy---clear as a bell. USING AND MISUSING FOR INSTITUTIONALIZED AGENDA ...
NOT for GOD as SPIRIT DOES NOT OPERATE IN THIS MANNER. 

it is continued deception ... to whitewash a corrupt and manipulative system ... playing on the EMOTIONS of children and young women and ESPECIALLY to COVER FOR THEIR OWN DEVIOUS ACTS ... the very many cruel and abusive ... sexual acts ... as they must know that their time is coming to an end and they will try at all costs to 'redeem' themselves for the atrocities of their behavior throughout HISTORY 

VATICAN---ROME ... we can see your intent ... you may fool your sheep by leading them precariously close to the edge ... but what comes will reveal your evil intent in these dogmatic and disingenuous plants


SHAME ON YOU, POPE JORGE!!

you drown the infants in false truths and lethargy ... you sold your soul to the institution---didn't you? an errant, dogmatic, insolent denying institution---a murderous regime. you are THE BAIT to lure them ... isn't it so, jorge? the worm to bait the people and corral them for your (INSTITUTION) own purposes ... NOT THE PURPOSE OF THE ALMIGHTY! be honest and save what's left of you ... as it stands, you will never see THE LIGHT OF DAY. 

this youngling you parade as saint, USING---MISUSING HER---to sell your archaic arts ... you selfish, insolent bastard ... SHE IS NOT BEING GIVEN VOICE! you and your despicable doctrine is choosing for her ... WHAT DO YOU KNOW OF GOD'S MIND? you arrogant worm! how would you know of FORGIVENESS while others bow to YOU and worship YOU? this is obscene!

the Angels are weary of your pandering, jorge ... your lies and your charades. you should have known better; instead you bring false hope and deny voice to those being CALLED to speak ... you lead them into mediocrity ... lethargy and death. you bury their GIFTs for them, don't you? through that medieval map ... and then try to steal these for your own use---you and your converts. it won't work ... your time is coming to an end and all will know the truth about you and your institution.

DO YOU SEE WHAT IS WRITTEN ABOVE, JORGE? HAVE YOU READ THESE WORDS? DO YOU AVOID QUOTING SUCH BECAUSE YOU KNOW YOU ARE DISHONEST? do you think you are avoiding blaspheming the Spirit by this trick? WE know about you and how your ordained dogmatics operate, and we know of your tools to deceive ... DO NOT ADD OR TAKE AWAY ... what did you not understand about these words? a revelation for you: you have already blasphemed the Holy Spirit.  you are a carny job ... and we will use you to demonstrate to the world the lies and deception of rome.

get on your knees and beg for REAL FORGIVENESS, JORGE! know the TRUTH about {this}! you spit in the face of victims one more time and your name will be linked with death, destruction and manipulation to lead innocents to an early grave, you reckless and arrogant cave.man! get out before this becomes a part in your play ... for, yes ... you do bring it upon yourself.

regarding the EXPLOITATION of female "saint"

I can’t quite shake a slight feeling. Her statement of “I want to be with my attacker forever” feels a little too much like the common minimization of violence against women. Violence against women (especially rape) is too often portrayed as no big deal, and women are told that they might was well enjoy it. This saint comes a little too close to the barbaric biblical law that a woman must marry her rapist, and should be happy about it.

because there is dishonest intent, jon. you SENSE this as being a minimization of violence against women because it is the vatican's 'toll' (see gnostic lit) ... in this. this should be boycotted but so few understand what's going on here (slogging, numb, in the dark) and the vatican expects this---is accustomed to people being unaware as they are masters of this game ... but are you unaware, jon? you are right on! and many more will begin to see the vagaries of the mind in these tactics for control.
