There were about 30,000 arrests of violators of quarantine as of April 21. I wonder what they will do with them. Put them in a crowded jail in violation of quarantine? Mass arrests may induce more virus infections than the violations themselves. Dilemma of Pasaways versus Pulis.

 

The DILG told LGUs not to implement their staggered grocery-market shopping schedule, similar to the color-coding scheme based on the quarantine ID no. The move would induce more social distancing problems.

 

Real time global statistics by Infographics of Channel News Asia shows 40k US deaths as of April 22. DZMM says this is double of the figure 5 days ago and may double again to 80k in another 5 days or April 27. WRONG!!! IT MAY QUADRUPLE according to exponential mathematics to 160k. By the end of May, it may jump to less than a million. Without substantial remedies and effective interventions on a massive scale, the US death toll may soar to circa 2 million by July, pessimistically. Let us pray for America and the world.

 

In the next few weeks, the US pandemic casualties may easily dwarf the total of US casualties in World Wars I and II, the Korean, Vietnamese and Afghanistan Wars combined. The US has been waging wars across the globe continuously since 9/11, killing tens of thousands of civilians in indiscriminate bombings with very little of its own casualties, just a few pilots or unpiloted drones. Suddenly, this powerful nations, the lone superpower for decades, is helpless. Is this God’s plan to bring a powerful nation down to its knees? Suddenly, a silent invisible enemy is more powerful than a nuclear multiple warhead. The wars the US exports has boomeranged into a ‘war’ at home, from the cities down to the backyards of remote towns.

 

Singapore’s COVID test of unique persons (not repeat tests) is around 10,500 per million population. Philippines is 44 and Indonesia 65. The more tests you conduct, the more COVID infection cases you will uncover. If you are short on test kits, a lot of invisible infection may be happening and you don’t know until it explodes. In other words, if you are late in detection due to lack test kits, there may be a surge. So far, with the help of the Philippine Red Cross under Dick Gordon, the testing bottle neck bottleneck is slowly being decongested.

 

Singapore, a model in effective virus control, suddenly has the virus going viral within a compound of Bangladesh construction workers, living in crowded 20-per-room dorms. They were not on lockdown, so hundreds were infected in a single day. The government however is implementing strict lockdown.

 

OFW dilemma. The flood of OFWs coming home after many OFW deaths in the UK is worrying the government. There is fear of logistics breakdown and infections soaring. There is not enough budget for the promised free food in quarantine areas. An OFW complained that he had to buy his drinking water and soap. The government is telling the OFWs that maybe it is better not to come home first at this time. The ten million or so OFWs worldwide bringing home $30 million or so a year are suddenly on a crash dive.

 

Global calls to daily prayers. 1) Three Our Fathers for Our Lady of Medjugorje to intercede for us to the Lord to stop the pandemic. Every 3pm Philippine time. 2) Holy Rosary upon request of Pope Francis. Every 9pm Vatican time. You can pray anywhere anytime. Prayers are the ultimate solution to the pandemic. Bernie V.

Pope Francis Leadership Restored by Pandemic * ‘Papal Heresy’ and the Amazon Synod

POPE FRANCIS LEADERSHIP RESTORED BY PANDEMIC

Before the pandemic, Pope Francis was the subject of criticism from all sides, especially on the issue of “Papal Heresy” and the Amazon Synod. He was mostly silent and hardly fought back. In some cases, he reacted and did something about it, but he never issued rebuttals. He just kept on going with his duties as the Vicar of Christ in silence. In the onslaught of Media, his credibility eroded rapidly. He was in the middle of a global storm.

 

The pandemic changed all that. Suddenly, everyone turned to his leadership. The criticisms vanished. Suddenly, he reached the eye of the storm. Suddenly, he was on the spot. Suddenly, everybody responded to his global calls to prayer. The pandemic was indeed a wake-up call to prayer on a massive global scale. His Urbi et Orbi Homily went viral (link shown below). His leadership as the Vicar of Christ in a chaotic planet was restored in the blink of an eye. In his Easter Mass, the Vatican was empty. But ironically, millions were listening online.
 
Refuting ‘Papal Heresy’ and the Amazon Synod

 

This is a raging theological issue among Conservatives and Liberals. The Conservatives consider the presence of a pagan statue in the Vatican as a ‘desecration’. The Liberals argue that there is a subtle racism against ‘pagans’ by the Conservatives. The liberal view is that IT WAS NOT BRINGING PAGANISM TO THE CHURCH BUT BRINGING THE CHURCH TO THE PAGANS.

 

The root cause of the crisis in the Church today revolves around the never-ending war between Conservatives and Liberals. It is better to be fence-sitters in this complex irreconcilable war.

 

In a complex 20-page open letter, 18 signatories, mostly editors and academicians who were not an authority on Theology and Church dogma, together with some prelates, issued a vague and unfounded accusation against Pope Francis of the ‘crime’ of ‘heresy’. It is possible that many signed without reading the fine print. The signature is possibly still ongoing.

 

A Life Site News article, which cited the letter, did not describe the exact nature of the ‘crime’, and used vague accusations; for example, the Pope’s “positions (are) contrary to the faith”. No evidence was given on the ‘heresy’ except this 20-page document, which used dogmatic jargon so hard for ordinary readers to understand. Thus, it was labelled by Papal defenders as black propaganda against the Pope.

 

The letter cited “Amorsi Laetitia 295 where Pope John Paul II issued a statement on ‘the law of gradualness’. The letter simply pitted the words of the two Popes against each other, who were both NOT exercising their rights to ‘infallibility’. It was actually the OPINION of the open letter that the two papal statements were contradictory without showing how and why, without revealing the statements themselves in detail, and finally concluding Pope John Paul II was right and Pope Francis wrong and heretical. All the 20 points ‘proving’ heresy in the letter are questionable and vague.

 

The goal of Media, traditional or social, Catholic or non-Catholic, is to go viral, to achieve visibility to millions of readers. Many are prone to shoot from the hip, forgetting the fact that their arguments can be subtly flawed in their haste to publish. Many forget their mission to evangelize. Indeed, many, especially in Social Media, are instruments of the devil without knowing it.

 

Many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted. Many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other. Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
 
Matthew 24:10-14 (excerpts).
 
beware the wolf in sheep’s clothing
snakes in red robes
demons in white robes
with wings and halos
 
learn to discern truth and falsehood
sincerity and deception
hidden in eloquence and smiles
 
pray to the Holy Spirit
for the wisdom of discernment
in our troubled world
