Prayer to
Saint Michael

“Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.”

Ex Primoribus

There is no stopping Pope Francis. If John Paul II may be said to be the most traveled pontiff during his lifetime, Jorge Bergoglio may actually break his record and in so doing bring about so many records between the Vatican and the countries he has visited during his pontificate.

It was Sarah's idea, being advanced in age, that Abraham would father an heir through their slave, Hagar. Hagar naturally accepted the prospect of being mother to Abraham's heir for she had nothing to lose but gain. And then, the patriarch's firstborn, Ishmael came to be.

Cain was a tiller of the land while Abel pastured his flock. As Adam's sons, they both have access to God. In their respective altars, they could offer God their very best so that God in turn, can acknowledge as His own like Adam before Eden was lost.

"In Athens, Socrates was a victim of a pure democracy, a passive submission to a pagan authority; In Russia, the family of Czar Nicholas II, was a victim of pure communism, an explosive subjugation from a godless revolution. Which is a better ideology? Any political entity would fail the people it serves when it is without God. And yet, perhaps one would ask, why in Jerusalem, under the Roman puppet kingdom of the Herod Agrippa, Jesus Christ was crucified or why in the Hejaz, in the Arab wasteland of the Nomads; Mohamed, the greatest prophet of Allah and his band were killing tribesmen; both in the name of God."

Ricardo B de los Santos

Dr. Ricardo de los Santos, in his many talks concerning mysteries and the supernatural one time spoke of the very first vampire. And this he said he based on an old Jewish legend which circulated in the very first century. Some of us were really surprised when he revealed that the very first vampire was not Count Dracula himself but someone more notorious and tragic when presented as he is. He disclosed that this is the enigmatic man from Kerioth; the ultimate traitor himself, Judas Iscariot. How this came to be is one the subplots of Dr. de los Santos’ second novel, he said.

The very basic foundation of goodness as manifested in society is the belief in God. One may say that a person can be good even if he does not believe in God but one can not actually say if that person is indeed good until his lifetime is finished. It seems that what determines a person’s goodness is his end result. This may be the reason why a saint can only be canonized or ascertained to be holy when he has already died and a thorough investigation of his life suggestive of the odor of sanctity has been made. There are only two kinds of saints; one who has reformed and one who has shown holiness throughout his lifetime. The first one’s conduct can only be attributed to be ethically exemplary after his actual reform while the latter can be an exemplar throughout his lifetime. Of course, nobody is perfect but man’s striving into holiness makes him good.

It seems that feminism, or what was known before as women’s liberation movement has finally found its niche in American society.

I'd like to make a confession. My elder Arci is right. I'm indeed a hopeless romantic. Not that I don't have hope but there's no hope changing me from being a romantic. And for this I have prepared a sonnet confession.

I know that Rico del Sol is one of you. I can't blame my younger brother because he had always been a hopeless romantic. But I am a man of science, I even wrote a book in science but this does not make me a slave of modernism either. However, your tone and orientation in In Factum is always subjective, heightened by emotional appeal and may therefore be considered ad hominem. I hope that you will disprove me as I do not ascribe to your ideas of a pope leading his flock to apostasy and especially of the church dying right in front of us, the militant church. As proof of your objectivity, therefore, I request that this article of mine will be published in your forum, in its whole length, form and context. And with that I will have done my part as probably you believe that you have done yours.

It was in Karel Capek’s “Rossum's Universal Robots”, that the word robot was first used. And also in this play, the question on how the robot’s raised consciousness was likely to affect it’s creator: mankind. Today, we are experiencing the damning existence of that question and the phenomena of robots even seemingly more intelligent than anyone of us.
