As I predicted on my recent post the Royal Baby is Here, today, on the very first day of full Moon. July the 22nd. It’s a boy (I predicted a girl) So His Royal name is not yet known
All we know is that he was born at 4:24 pm local time and weighed 8.6 pounds in London’s Saint Mary’s Hospital. William was present for the birth

The name was not immediately announced and may not be known for up to a week.
But great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II was the first to get the news from her grandson, by encrypted phone to the palace, and just in time, too. She’s scheduled to leave on her annual vacation at her Balmoral estate inScotland at the end of this week.

The new Pope? Who will He be? A fool’s prediction(mine)


(by pio dal cin) March 6th 2013 11:00 pm (GMT+1)
As I red the “Washington Post” article about the”AmericanCardinals” involved in the election of the new Pope, my attention was attracted by these few lines:
Di Nardo and O’Malley drew laughs when one reporter asked O’Malley, a member of the Capuchin order, if he would continue to wear his trademark brown robes if elected pope.

“I’ve worn this uniform for over 40 years and I presume I will wear it until I die,” he said. “I don’t expect to be elected pope, so I don’t expect to have to change.”
t
This was the second time I heard this today: first time on the Italian National Radio. The words “Capucine” attracted my attention, as I did not know that there was an American Cardinal who wears the “saio” (the Capucine uniform) for forty years.
 
Whomever tries to make a prediction about who is going to be the next Pope is a fool, as there are two ways of looking at this event that is monopolizing the attention of over Five thousand accredited journalists from all over the world:
 
A): The Vatican is a Earthly Power made by people like you and I, owners of the most powerful bank in the world (the IOR). As any other power on this earth the election will deliver the new Pontiff as the Head of a State (The Vatican)and any name among the 115 cardinals could be the one to take St.Peter’s Legacy.
 
B): As seen from a Christian Catholic point of view the “Conclave” is fueled by the Holy Spirit, therefore the Chosen will be absolutely without any possibility of mistake the “Right One”.
 
After this any prediction is impossible. There are no ways. Probably guessing the Lotto numbers will be a lot easier.
 
A FOOL PREDICTION
 
My name is Pio. My father Narciso named me after a Capucine Saint he had the priviledge of knowing when He was an unknown Capucine Friar healing people and making “miracles.
The Church confined him without the permission to celebrate the Holy Mass, for ten long years, on the ground that He, Himself was considered “strange”. He is now a Saint; Saint Pio or better known as “Padre Pio da Petrelcina”.
 
I grew up in a very Christian Catholic environment and my life was filled with its simbols from my childhood. I had the opportunity of meeting two Popes in my life: the first one was John Paul the First, Albino Luciani. More than once, as He was the Bishop of Vittorio Veneto, where I grew up, and then, during a private visit of my family to the Partiarcat of Venice, where He spent his last years before becoming Pope John Paul I.
 
The second Pope I met was Pope John Paul II for three times as I followed him as a young photojournalist during His vacation on the Dolomites‘ town of Lorenzago.
Does this make me an expert on Popes?
Absolutely not, just another fool trying to make a prediction.
 
HARD TIMES FOR THE CHURCH
 
Times are hard for the Catholic Church, battling amid sex scandals and the “Vatican Leaks” files.
The need is for a strong Pope, one Captain that can take the helm of the Ship and go trough one of  Church’s worst hurricanes in history.
 
It is time for a Pope with the “saio” who can bring the Church back to the times of Saint Francis of Assisi, the poor friar who made a great revolution in the Church with His humble, poor ways.
Without a Pope that can rid the Vatican from all the “evils” represented by richness, golden crosses, money trades that cannot be tracked for million of Euros and all the sex scandals that have come up in the last few years, more than a Ship, it will look like the Titanic, headed for a Iceberg.
 
As a Fool prediction I will pick Cardinal O’Malley, hoping that if He gets elected He will keep wearing the “saio” for the next forty years, but this time as a Pope, making the “B” option above more credible.

 

Politica e futuro


Previsioni sulla politica italiana per il futuro:
Il pdl verra’ sciolto e ritorneranno a formarsi i partiti che lo hanno composto, rivendicando la loro autonomia e andando a creare nuovi poli che andranno ad allearsi a comporre nuove alleanze. La Lega si scindera’ in due o piu’ correnti altrimenti e’ destinata a perdere ben piu’ consensi, vista l’impopolarita’ di certe decisioni come quella dei ministeri al Nord che non servono assolutamente a niente rispetto ai problemi concreti della gente. Maroni diventera’ il nuovo leader del carroccio e forse anche il nuovo primo ministro del dopo berlusconi. Gli Italiani chiederanno un referendum per abrogare le ricche paghe dei parlamentari ed i loro privilegi.La sinistra privata del suo bersaglio preferito berluscono continuera’ ad arrovellarsi cercando un programma vero per governare con i suoi “dinosauri” senza riuscirci e trovera’ un nuovo bersaglio sul quale scaricare le sue frustrazioni. Grillo continuera’ a cavalcare il malcontento “monetizzando” con i banners del suo cliccatissimo blog. Infine i tre moschettieri del terzo polo continueranno a voltarsi ora a destra ora a sinistra a seconda di come tira il vento, come sono soliti a fare i voltagabbana, e in tutto questo baillame a rimetterci, come sempre saranno i poveri pensionati, i disoccupati, i cassintegrati, i giovani in cerca di lavoro per pagare un mutuo che petmetta loro di farsi una famiglia, mentre chiedendo enormi sacrifici al popolo, i parlamemtari continueranno a vivere come nababbi con le loro pensioni d’oro e le loro paghe stratosferiche, poiche’ alla fine, troveranno il sistema per non fare il referendum di cui sopra

Amy Winehouse funeral will be private(video of her parents)

Amy Winehouse’s funeral will take place on Tuesday attended by just family and friends, a spokesman for her family has said.

A post-mortem examination into her death took place on Monday.

No cause of death has been given, while an inquest was opened and adjourned until 26 October. Results of further toxicology tests could take four weeks.

The 27-year-old singer’s body was found on Saturday at her home in Camden, north London.

The spokesman would not reveal any details about the location or time of the funeral.

On Monday, her father Mitch Winehouse thanked fans for their tributes, saying: “I can’t tell you what this means to us. It really is making this a lot easier.”

Visiting his daughter’s home, he added the loss left him “speechless”.

The singer’s mother and brother also visited the site to see the flowers, cards and photos fans laid in tribute.

A family spokesman had earlier said the funeral would be held as soon as possible, with coroners issuing interim death certificates allowing arrangements to be made.

Traditionally, Jewish funerals take place as quickly as possible following a death.

The Brit and Grammy award-winner had struggled with drink and drug addiction for many years and had recently spent time in rehab.

But police have declined to say whether her death was drug-related.

The singer, who topped the charts with her album Back To Black, was found dead by a member of her security team.

The album re-entered the charts on Sunday almost five years after it was released. The record, produced by Mark Ronson, climbed to number 59.
