Magna Carta Holy Grail….wait Jay-Z did what?

***claps***

From HipHop Mogul to owning part of the Brooklyn Nets, to deciding to represent Top athletes (the likes of KD, Kevin Durant) as an Agent, to now striking major deal with tech Giant, Samsung. Jay-Z sold a million Album, before you and I knew there were ever an Album…. Now all that is impressive. Clearly the 43 years old entrepreneur has a knack for marketing…He is not a businessman, remember, he is a business, mehn!!!

But that isnt what we’re blogging about today. Let’s play some word association:

“BOW DOWN”

“YEEZUS”

“HOV”

“GOD-MC”

“HOLY GRAIL”

Clearly there is a very dynamic trend… and It’s no astrophysics what that trend may be.  I am not thinking illuminati or all the conspiracies either.

I am Christian. I just find it ironic that “they” are becoming very PREDICTABLE in their UNoriginal attempt to parallel Christianity.  Ironic? yes. precisely that. Any ounce of ’emotions’ for this pseudo-movement might give it some unwarranted credibility. It is Ironic because I’d like to argue that the name “Yeezus” doesn’t add anything substantial to what we already know about ‘YE, but gives an authentic credence in a subtle way to the unanimity of Jesus, true God and true Man. How? it is simple…

Essentially, the harder we try to copy a thing, the greater must be the value of that very thing…. Think of the Mona Lisa being replicated or any of Picasso’s invaluable pieces. The copy could never rival the original, not today, not back then, not tomorrow.

The frenchies say : “Toujours imite, mais jamais egale!

So yes. Ironic!

Pope Francis meets Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Pope Francis meets Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. – Jesus

If an artist were to paint the essence of Sacred Tradition, this epic photograph would be IT!! Tradition is taken from the Latin trado, tradere meaning to hand over, to deliver.

My thoughts: The Election of Pope Francis I: A Call to humility for All.

The Kenosis Hymn (Phil 2:5-11)

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name,  that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,  and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

  Catholics around the world, heard with great shock the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. It was for many, a confusing decision, but it remained for me an unparralleled act of humility and confirmed my understanding of his papacy and  the great virtues PBXVI sought to teach us from the pages of Christ’s life. A month later we were graced with the election of Pope Francis I, formerly Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio.

13-3-13

The humble act of resignation (although interpreted by many – in the mainstream media as cowardice, reminiscent of the crowds at Golgotha) catalyzed the Church on a cascade to single out the most basic, the most important of all Christian Principles: that is to say: Jesus’ humility and the duty that all Christians are called to imitate, hence my opening with the Kenosis hymn. Else, following Christ is in vain (#punintended). 

Thus, in the divine providence of the third person of the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit, prioritized this cardinal virtue, HUMILITY, which Cardinal Bergoglio, no surprise to those who know him made a point to live his life by. 

If this is the direction God intends on taking the church, whom are we to object? 

Many signs of humility already decorate the papacy of Pope Francis I: 

 -In picking the name of the founder of the Franciscan order (Francis of Assisi), the Jesuit priest now named Pope Francis  symbolically affirms the UNITY of the church. A humble gesture to say the least, in a world that is constantly divided by ideologies. 

-The Church has never been graced with a Pope Francis. Unbelievable, I know, for such a grace-filled name. But St Francis of Assisi was a remarkable saint who mirrored the humility and love of Jesus Christ, and in electing to model his papacy after him, Pope Francis I foretells his intention of a meek papacy. 

-Pope Francis hails from one of the modern epicenters of catholic faith: South America. The church in departing from the long standing tradition of a European pope sends a strong message in the paradigm of its humble future. This parallels the dichotomy that the first Christians faced at the council of Jerusalem in matters of opening the doors of Christ to the Gentiles. We are witnessing a “re-gentilification” of the church that will most certainly heighten efforts of the new evangelization.   

-Lastly, but certainly not least, it is said that: God does not choose the equipped, he equips those whom He has chosen. He did it with the first pope, in singling out St Peter….2000 years later, He has remained faithful. The inauguration of Pope Francis is scheduled for the Feast of St Joseph, March 19. St Joseph, quite arguably the most underrated biblical character, was tasked with the impossible task of raising God. Do you know what Pope Francis’ papal motto is: MISERANDO ATQUE ELIGENDO” -LOWLY YET CHOSEN. How Appropriate!

 In comparison with his predecessors who also motored the engine of the church according to their respective motto.

 PBXVI: Cooperatores Veritatis – Cooperators of the Truth – affirming his vigorous love for the Truth of Jesus Christ and His Church – (that was the legacy he is leaving – doctrinal rigor!)

PJPII: Totus Tuus – Totally Yours – affirming his total surrendering to Jesus – (even onto death – THIS was his papacy)

  No conclusion is necessary. It is only the beginning.

Dennis Rodman in North Korea… ARGO II, Anyone???

Argo recently won the Oscars for best picture. Dennis Rodman, however is being slandered for going into North Korea and shooting the breeze with Kim Jong Un.

Will this turn into the new face (hollywood) of diplomatic relations. Perhaps we’re jolting into a new era of international relations.

Hopefully the parallel won’t cause too much brain gymnastics. But can ‘the worm’ catch a break and can the information gathered on his trip be made useful. [That is of course if it has not already].

 

 

Plastics vs. Babies.

This is one of the most unlikely boxing match with of course babies as ‘thee’ phenomenal underdog. The archetype of synthetic materials (polymers) disguised under the term plastics has shown its resiliency yet another time in making a baby’s life far less enjoyable then and thereafter.

After the huge scare of deadly substances primarily (Bisphenol A) in babies’ wonderland from toys to even bottles, new research seems to suggest that another Polymer, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) may contain a substance a bit more sophisticated in altering the normal growth of our dear little people. It’s weird. But worth noting. Studies may indicate that early exposure to these substances, can make the individual fatter. The simplest way to explain and I quote from Mr Kristoff:

Endocrine disruptors are a class of chemicals that mimic hormones and therefore confuse the body. Initially, they provoked concern because of their links to cancers and the malformation of sex organs. Those concerns continue, but the newest area of research is the impact that they have on fat storage.

Look at the data. America is undeniably obese. While there are multiple plausible causes for the latter, these substances, referred to as obesogens are worth a serious probe. And I agree, this in my opinion is a more constructive approach to reducing healthcare cost in America. Longterm, It will avoid those painful fiscal cliffs thug of wars.

Scandal. [Episode: One for the Dog]

I wanted to properly vent my thoughts. I needed the platform. My blog volunteered.

This is one of the few episodes I actually recall watching live since its [scandal] inception. And to be fair, the plot took a tremendous jump as quite a bit happened in this episode, Here are my top ten thoughts about the show, thus far, most precisely this episode.

My conspiracies are mine and mine alone. My opinion is mine and mine alone.

1- The two most important men in her life [nearly] died. Huck and Fitz. This is a blanket statement. True Love is what Huck has for Liv, in my opinion. Everything else in this show is debatable.

2-  This episode was heavy in constitutional Law. It’s almost on purpose, or maybe just timely with all the [american] news going on [debt ceiling, firearms, benghazi…etc]

3- What was on the fifth page of Huck’s file? The plan to catch the real killer??? I need some help decoding that.

4-I am still debating which is more tolerable: Cyrus’ walk or Liv’s facial expressions…lol #ICAN’T. Conversely no one outdoes Cyrus when it comes to monologues!!! He is a beast. and Liv, she is just Pope. #NOPUNINTENDED.Image

5-Must the bad guy be from Tejas? lol lol lol .I must say: that decoy plan to move Fitz to Camp David was James Bond-esque!!!

6-The senator. Good Intentions, Bad time. Lots of ‘senators’ in real life.  ***raises hand***

7- However let me say this: Kerry Washington must have relayed some tarantino tips on how to splash  plasma on windows to the producers of Scandal. For a second I thought they chained Django, I mean Huck, lol. That scene was bloody Bad! {British Accent}.

8- The first lady, yes, used to be the smartest character. The vice president is giving her a run for her money. That shifted the balance tremendously. The core [Mellie/Cyrus/Liv] is slowly fading.

9- Pope and Associates’ is slowly and gradually becoming irrelevant. Is it just me?

10- Last but not least: Quote of the episode: “We are shredding the constitution like confetti”. It rang deep only because it’s done daily in most African republics, and, as we speak live in Mali and CAR, to name a few.

Regardless, I think we are nearing the end…. Next episode is called “A criminal, a whore, an idiot and a Liar” Can ya guess who??? A Season 3 might be a tall order. But it IS Shonda… and where there is a will, she finds her way.
