Oremus et pro beatissimo Papa nostro Benedicto,
ut Deus et Dominus noster, qui elegit eum in ordine episcopatus, salvum atque incolumem custodiat Ecclesiæ suæ sanctæ, ad regendum populum sanctum Dei.
Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, cuius iudicio universa fundantur: respice propitius ad preces nostras, et electum nobis Antistitem tua pietate conserva; ut christiana plebs, quæ te gubernatur auctore, sub tanto pontifice, credulitatis suæ meritis augeatur. Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum Filium tuum, qui tecum vivat et regnat in unitate Spiritu Sancti, Deus, per omnia sæcula sæculorum.

Today is the Day of Great Silence. Our Shepard is gone. This is also the day of a celebration of Evil. They have killed God, the One who became a man to save us. But not for long they will be laughing and shouting in their wicked feast. When darkness will be growing, when the night will come, they will come back to celebrate. But they do not know, that the One who was buried will rise from the dead.
The Son of man will be delivered into the power of men; they will put him to death; and three days after he has been put to death he will rise again. (Mark 9,31)
This is our hope, this is our salvation. We are no longer children of the darkness, no longer do we have to walk in the night, because Jesus is our light, our lamp in the darkness.
Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you. (Ephesians 5,14)
He is our Sun, the Sun that will always shine for us. So do not worry, be patient and await the night which „is as clear as the day (Ps 138,12).
Primiller wrote this little poem for me:
Dear fellow saint Galhen,
with eager Amen
I answer your yearning,
that we will again,
live saintly, though fallen,
live bravely, though fail,
that one more heart listens,
and Christ shall prevail!
I like it very much. Thank you! I hope that all people shall understand that sainthood is so much important. Only with a strong faith in God, God whose name is JHWH, whose Son became a man, who sent us His Holy Spirit, only with this strong faith we can live in peace and joy. Because even if we fall, if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous (1 John 2,1). There’s no greater hope for us!
Inspired by Hyalma and her blog, I also decided to start writing in English. First and main reason is to practice English, so that I won’t forget it.
I decided to share with some thoughts about freedom. I hear quite often that God or Church is against our freedom. All the things you have to do or yo’re not allowed. But is it really like this? I think, it’s a little bit different. God gave us freedom. He wants us to worship him in freedom, not like robots, which cannot decide what they are doing. We are free, so we do not have to obey the rules of the world. These rules are leading us into addiction of sin. Sin addicts, virtue does not. Have anyone heard of someone addicted to mercy? No, of course not. The way of the Lord is the way of freedom. Leave your sins, your addictions, all bad things that happened in your life. God frees you from it! Be free, be happy, be His child!
