Pope Francis is being credited with a miracle — or at least a “half miracle” — after St. Gennaro’s blood liquified in his presence in Naples on Saturday.

The saint’s blood is usually dry inside of its sealed glass ampoule. However, after the pope kissed the relic, it began to turn to liquid.

“It is the sign that St. Gennaro loves Pope Francis: half of the blood turned to liquid,” Cardinal Crescenzo Sepe, archbishop of Naples, told the cheering crowd, according to Vatican Insider.

“If only half of it liquefied that means we still have work to do; we have to do better,” the pontiff replied. “We have only half of the saint’s love.”

The website reports that the blood continued to liquefy until the entire contents of the ampoule had turned to liquid, causing some in the crowd to weep.

Face of Jesus appears in South American landslide

Posted by doctore0 on March 24, 2015

Pareidolia strikes again…

JC is it you... :P

JC is it you… :P

An image of Jesus is believed by worshippers to have appeared following a landslide.

The apparition is attracting hundreds of visitors to the San Francisco area of Putumayo, Colombia, since Saturday.

And some local landowners are cashing in on the ‘miracle’ – by charging visitors for access to view the figure, it has been reported.

A police presence has also been necessary to manage the crowds.

“If you believe in Jesus you will see your image ,” Ximena Rosero Arango, one of the many people who have come to the site to photograph the mountain told Eltiempo.com.

Christians Prepare For Martyrdom To Fight Gay Marriage

Posted by doctore0 on March 22, 2015

“A religious conservative broadcaster warned Christians to “prepare for martyrdom” if the U.S. Supreme Court sanctioned marriage equality.

Sandy Rios, director of governmental affairs for the American Family Association and host of a daily radio program, did not specify what she meant by that – but her context was clear.

“Homosexual marriage is going to bring about the tip of the spear of the battle we’re going to face,” Rios said Thursday to a gathering of religious right activists and pastors.”

Dave Ramsey And His Big Ass House And Money From Jesus

Posted by doctore0 on March 21, 2015

It’s probably safe to say that Dave Ramsey has shitloads of money, Scrooge McDuck piles of cash that he has acquired over a long life of telling overs how to make money for a nominal fee. Taking on the persona of so many self-help speakers from the 1990’s Ramsey promotes a Christian lifestyle of managing wealth and remembering to thank Jesus once you’re stinkin’ rich. A website, Bible Money Matters, recently mocked Ramsey’s brand new multi-million dollar house, asking how he could show off his success instead of following the teachings of Jesus to help the less fortunate. Ramsey shot back that it was Jesus’s money, and that he was just taking care of it. Because apparently god hears you better from a nice pad and its probably even better in a private jet.”

Elves make com­pro­mise with Road Ad­min­is­tra­tion

Posted by doctore0 on March 19, 2015

My crazy country :)

A large and un­usual rock will be moved to­day to make way for a new road in the mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Álf­tanes, close to Reyk­javík. An an­nounce­ment from the Ice­landic Road Ad­min­is­tra­tion states that the rock will be placed by the side of the road close to sim­i­lar rock for­ma­tions.

“A pact be­tween elves and men,” ex­plains clair­voy­ant Ragn­hildur Jóns­dót­tir who wrote to the Mayor of Garðabær on be­half of the elves in 2012.
A con­tro­ver­sial road pro­ject

Mov­ing the rock has been some­what con­tro­ver­sial and the new place­ment of the rock is no co­in­ci­dence. In 2013 the story of this rock, be­lieved to be the leg­endary Ófeigskirkja- an elf church- made in­ter­na­tional news.
Galadriel, the Lady of Lórien as she appears in Peter Jackson’s film version of Tolkien’s …

“Elf ad­vo­cates have joined forces with en­vi­ron­men­tal­ists to urge the Ice­landic Road and Coastal Com­mis­sion and lo­cal au­thor­i­ties to aban­don a high­way pro­ject build­ing a di­rect route from the Alf­tanes penin­sula, where the pres­i­dent has a home, to the Reyk­javik sub­urb of Gard­abær. They fear dis­turb­ing elf habi­tat and claim the area is par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant be­cause it con­tains an elf church,” wrote the As­so­ci­ated Press at the time.
