Opus hodiernus: sensus : I just had to get this shit off my chest. You know how it is.

Arma virumque cano, Troiae qui primus ab oris
Italiam, fato profugus, Laviniaque venit
litora, multum ille et terris iactatus et alto
vi superum saevae memorem Iunonis ob iram;
multa quoque et bello passus, dum conderet urbem,
inferretque deos Latio, genus unde Latinum,
Albanique patres, atque altae moenia Romae.
Musa, mihi causas memora, quo numine laeso,
quidve dolens, regina deum tot volvere casus
insignem pietate virum, tot adire labores
impulerit. Tantaene animis caelestibus irae?

Can that anyone answer me?

Honestly, I don't understand what you wrote. (Is it Latin?) I don't even know what a "blogger" is . . . however, I was moved by "The Passion of the Christ," and wonder your opinion as to why the Roman soliders; who so cruely beat Jesus and the High Priests didn't feel the Magnificence and Holiness of His Spirit? I feel what I believe to be the Holy Spirit when I am around Truth. Why didn't they? Thank you, in advance, for your answers. Ginger

We must, as the Bible teaches us, rule with an iron rod. Those who dissent must be punished severely. A war on Christmas rages in the streets of America! Souls are being lost to athesits, jews and islamics!
--quoted from one of "Mel's" older entries

You've got to be joking. This blog is a ridiculously perverse hoax. Or rather, whoever writing it is peddling the name of Mel Gibson in hopes to get his delusions across.

Either way, it's utterly pathetic.

Ginger, you pose an interesting question. Yes it is Latin (which I use because it is the language of the TRUE church). A "blogger" is one who blogs. I blog to make the world a better place, or at least one that is more worthy of the great sacrifice that our savior Jesus Christ made for us. As to your question about the Roman soldiers, that is an excellent one. It is certainly difficult for us today to understand how the Roman soldiers could not have felt His Holiness.

However, we must remember that the Roman empire during Jesus' time, was, much like California is today, a place of great secular jewish decadence and debauchery. Thus, as powerful as His presence was, it might have not been powerful enough to break through the group orgies and the like that was going on at that time.

I am a catholic but there are certain doctrines of the faith which, i must honestly say, i dont agree with. One of them is assigning latin to be its language or the language of the true church, why? what makes latin so deserving its place in the church. Didn't Christ spoke in hebrew?

When you say we must rule with an iron rod, you presumed to be the ruler. Who do you presumed to be the ruled?

Ginger, I don't know if you will see this since it has been a few days since you posted but I stumbled upon this blog by accident. I had similar questions after seeing "The Passion of the Christ" and the following scriptures may help you understand why they didn't recognize Him as God. Philippians 2:6-8. When I read this scripture I was reminded that while Jesus was and is the Christ (God the Son), He set that part of Himself aside to come here and do what He chose to do for us.
(I like the amplified version)vs.6-"Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained.
vs.7-But stripped Himself [of all priveleges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being.
vs.8-And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross!"

Nothing you write contradicts anything I said, C.J. Nice try, anyway, though.

I'm curieus...what has a text of Vergilius, who talks about the great deeds of Aeneas and the foundation of Rome, to do with the Bible?

"Mel" - I don't know what you mean by "nice try"? I did not intend to come across as contradictory. Sorry.
