A Love Affair with Italy

Saturday break from politics, sort of…

A LOVE AFFAIR WITH ITALY Copyright © Marielena Montesino de Stuart. All rights reserved.

A h, the Latins… you’ll find them in the region between the Adriatic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. They are ethnically complex, but are bound by the common Latin root of their languages. Their artistry, romanticism and hot-blooded nature is what defines them. It was in this region that  Christianity came together as the strongest force in Europe– not just in numbers but aesthetically– through its extraordinary churches, cathedrals and multiple expressions of creativity. At the center of it all lies Italy, where Christendom found it’s beating heart– St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. Bernini’s columns are the guards solemnly embracing this great basilica. This inclination to protect our Christian culture and centers of worship is also evident in Italy’s myriad fortifications, which stand as silent sentinels of the efforts made to safeguard this territory.

Under Bernini’s massive columns, surrounded by extraordinary beauty and the Christian faith that defines this part of the world– is where I have spent some of the most wonderful moments of my life. As such, I am constantly reminded that Europeans must not allow the destruction of Europe to continue at the hands of Socialists who have dragged them back to the Gates of Vienna– as they face Islamic extremism and violence. This violence will find another home in the United States– unless Americans wake up.

It’s Saturday– and time for a break from news and politics… sort of. Let’s recharge with a little feast for the eyes. My love affair with Italy continues.

 

It’s time to lift the fog… someone has to say the truth.

OBAMA’S NEXT MIRACLE: Forcing the Sun to Shine at Night

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Consistent with his commitment to radically change America– Obama has his eyes on an even bolder goal: to force the sun to shine at night.

You see, Obama is determined to destroy the coal industry by replacing it with solar and wind power. So, in order to make solar and wind energy efficient and reliable Obama is determined to force the sun to shine at night. A kind of Arctic and Antarctic Summer Solstice phenomenon, if you will, that Obama will bring about right here in America under his “Yes We Can” slogan.

Here’s what the New York Times (2 Aug. 2015) had to say about Obama’s energy plan:

“Obama to Unveil Tougher Environmental Plan With His Legacy in Mind”

In the strongest action ever taken in the United States to combat climate change, President Obama will unveil on Monday a set of environmental regulations devised to sharply cut planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions from the nation’s power plants and ultimately transform America’s electricity industry.

The rules are the final, tougher versions of proposed regulations that the Environmental Protection Agency announced in 2012 and 2014. If they withstand the expected legal challenges, the regulations will set in motion sweeping policy changes that could shut down hundreds of coal-fired power plants, freeze construction of new coal plants and create a boom in the production of wind and solar power and other renewable energy sources.

Coal is what helped build this nation. It has been and remains the least expensive and reliable source of energy. Without coal, the Industrial Revolution would not have taken place– and the United States could not have been developed at such an incredible pace. Beyond reliability and affordability, coal is also the source of employment for millions. This includes those employed in the coal derivatives industry– another evidence of the robust need for coal around the world, including energy-hungry China and India.

Obama is clueless about coal

Obama is a good socialist– as such, he is an enemy of coal through his climate change program– which is part of an international development agenda with a relentless attack on the coal industry.

Like so many of these socialist campaigns (such as homosexual “marriage” as a human right, abortion as “social justice and healthcare for women”)– the campaign against coal seeks to pressure companies to consider the “immorality” of those who oppose this pernicious agenda against coal.

This is the same international development agenda responsible for the destruction of the coal industry in Spain. Please read my commentary titled, TEARS IN THE MINE SHAFT: The strangling of the coal industry in the U.S. and Spain. 

Obama ignores the fact that coal allows for excellent storage and development of systems that provide clean drinking water, food and medicine storage, manufacturing of clothing, as well as national and international transportation. The world’s consumption of coal has increased exponentially– almost as much as oil and gas combined– and much more than all forms of renewable energy. But none of these stubborn facts seem to matter to Obama– who is determined to turn America into the new land of the midnight sun.

Ah… Obama, the miracle worker.

PAGES OF HISTORY: Pope Francis and the Marxist Hammer and Sickle Crucifix

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Socialists love to erase history… so let’s make sure we keep our eyes on it.

Here is the interview conducted during the flight from Paraguay to Rome– where Francis talks about the hammer and sickle crucifix he received from the very Marxist President of Bolivia, Evo Morales.

Pope Francis and the Hammer and Sickle Crucifix

Excerpt:

Aura Vistas Miguel, (Radio Renascenca):

Well, there’s no group. It’s just me from Portugal. (laughing) Holiness, what did you think when you saw the hammer and sickle with Christ on it? And where did this object end up? What did you think when you saw the hammer and sickle with the Christ on it, given to you by Evo Morales? And where did this object end up?

Pope Francis:

Ah, yes, truly. I heard ‘mantello’ (editor’s note: mantle, cloak: ‘mantello’ is similar to ‘martello,’ the Italian for hammer, that’s why the Pope needed the question repeated), and I didn’t understand. It’s curious, I didn’t know this, nor did I know that Fr. Espinal was a sculptor and also a poet. I learned this in these days. I saw it and for me it was a surprise. Secondly, you can qualify it in the genre of “protest art” – for example in Buenos Aires, some years ago, there was an exhibit of a good sculptor, creative, Argentine, who is now dead. It was protest art, and I recall one, it was a crucified Christ on a bomber that was falling down, no? It’s Christianity, but a criticism that, let’s say, Christianity allied with imperialism, which is the bomber. The genre that first I didn’t know, and secondly, I would qualify it as protest art, which in some cases can be offensive, in some cases. Thirdly, in this concrete case, Fr Espinal was killed in 1980. It was a time when liberation theology had many different branches. One of the branches was with Marxist analysis of reality. Fr Espinal belonged to this, this. Yes, I knew because I was in those years rector of the theology faculty and we talked a lot about it, about the different branches and who were the representatives, no? In the same year, the general of the Society (of Jesus), Fr. Arrupe, wrote a letter to the whole Society on the Marxist analysis of reality in theology. Stopping on this point saying, “it’s no good, these are different things, it’s not right, it’s not correct.” And, four years later in 1984, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith published the first small volume, the first declaration on liberation theology that criticizes this. Then comes the second, which opens to a more Christian perspective. I’m simplifying, no? Let’s do the hermeneutic of that time: Espinal was an enthusiast of this Marxist analysis of the reality, but also of theology using Marxism. From this, he came up with this work. Also the poetry of Espinal was of this kind of protest. But, it was his life, it was his thought. He was a special man, with so much human geniality, who fought in good faith, no? Making a hermeneutic like this, I understand this work. For me it wasn’t an offense, but I had to do this hermeneutic, and I say it to you so that there aren’t any wrong opinions.

Vistas: Did you leave it there?

Pope Francis:

No, it’s traveling with me. Maybe you heard that President Morales wished to give me two honors, the most important of Bolivia (editor’s note: the Condor of Andes) and the other of the Order of Fr. Espinal, a new order (editor’s note: the Senate of Bolivia approved it June 30). If I … first, I’ve never accepted honors. I don’t do it. But, he did it with so much good will and with so much pleasure to please me. And, I thought that this comes from the people of Bolivia. So I prayed about it, what I should do. (I thought,) If I bring it to the Vatican it’ll go to the museum and end up there and no one … I thought about leaving it with Our Lady of Copacabana, the Mother of Bolivia, which will go to the sanctuary. The two honors will be in the Shrine of Our Lady of Copacabana, the Madonna, while the Christ is coming with me. Thanks.
