*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- While an Emblematic and Symbolic Vote, but also Politically Crucial for USA's foreseeable Future, starts Tomorrow at Alabama's Mediatic GOP Primary for a New Senator at Washington DC, between the American People's Grassroots Favorite, the  popular Judge Roy Moore, and the Washington DC. Establishment's pre-appointed Senator Luther Strange, (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/uspeoplevotenaturalfamilysuporterforsenator.html ), interesting New Facts, just Emerging from Yesterday's (Sunday, 24 September) Important Parliamentary Election in Germany, seem to send a Vibrant Message of Support to Judge Moore's self-sacrifice for the Defense of Natural Marriage and Births, against "Socialist" former US President Barack Hussein Obama's notorious 2009-2016+ Attempts to Impose, everywhere in the World, the Controversial and UnPopular "Same Sex Marriage" with "Adoption" of Children from Homosexuals, etc., which had Recently Influenced even some Conservative Politicians of the Establishment both in the US and in Europe.


That Alabama Senatorial Vote of Tuesday, 26 September 2017, is expected to Influence the forthcoming 2017-2018 Primaries for the 2018 Mid-Terms Elections in US Congress and Senate, where a Strong Fight is currently going-on between the New Popular Values Conservative Movement which had triggered New US President Don Trump's Surprizing Win in the latest, 2016 US Presidential Elections, and the Establishment, which has notoriously Delayed and/or Blocked most of his Electoral Agenda, for which has Voted the American People, marginalized or fired various among his Best Counsellors, linked with the Grassroots Popular Movement, systematically slandered, muzzled or mis-represented the New US President's real positions through Mainstream Medias, etc., as part of a Wider, Exceptionally Hard Struggle vis a vis a "Deep State", strongly Denounced recently even by some Experienced and Honest Journalists also of the Left, (See,  f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/journalistgreenwaldfortrumpondeepstate.html .


Last Sunday's German Elections concern almost the Same Period of Time (Late 2017 - 2021), as those incoming USA Mid-Term Primaries and Final Senate + Congress Elections (2017+2018-2022).


While the Issues linked with (mainly "Socialists"') Attempts to Impose "Same Sex etc., Both in Europe and in the USA, as well as Elsewhere in the World, (Despite Strong Resistance inside Many Countries), have notoriously provoked various very "Hot" Controversies, Massive Popular Counter-Demonstrations, Political Oppositions, Constitutional Amendments, Popular Referenda, Resistance of many Officials, but also an UnPrecedented Oppression of Dissidents, etc., mutatos-mutandis, almost Everywhere, (f.ex. in the US, France, the UK, Hungary and Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Russia, Australia, even at EU-level and Africa, etc.), and still seem Far from stopping Nowadays, (all the Contrary)...


In Addition to the Religious, Moral, Health, Social and Ethical Controversies about "Same Sex Marriage" itself, recent Public Propaganda of Homosexuality even in front of Children, and the more UnPopular Submission of Chldren to the Power of Homosexual Strangers under Pretext of "Adoption", stands also, Behind all that, a Risk for Exploitation by shady Technocratic Lobbies in order to Get Hold and soon Dominate various abnormal and AbNatural Techniques of Procreation of Human Beings, (f.ex. via the Atrocious abuse of so-called "Surrogate" Mothers, and/or more or less "Artificial" Births, with "In Vitro Fertilisations", Pre-Natal Genetic Tests, Transplantations, Genetic Manipulations of Human Embryos, etc), Obviously Dangerous for all Humankind.
 
It's in order to try to Protect Natural Family and Natural Births, that former Chief Justice in the Federated State of Alabama, Roy Moore, had Dared Sacrifice even his own (Elected) Top Job, a few Years earlier, from which he was brutaly Dismissed by Bureaucrats Executing Mr. Obama's Dictates, (that he notoriously Tried to Impose even in ... Poor African Countries, many among whom Dared Refuse and Fight-Back, both v. B.H.O. and Against some other US and EU Bureaucrats' Attempts to link even International Humanitaran Aid earmarked for very Poor Nations, to that Imposal of Controversial and UnPopular there "SSM", Officially Condemned inside the UNO, etc). Various more or less Similar Individual Conflicts, with manifold Slander, Muzzling or Censorship, Threats, Oppression, even Dismissals, Prosecution, Arrests and Jailings, etc. against Dissidents, took also place around these Same Issues, both in USA and in the UK, France, etc.


In Germany, it's Just ... the Last Day, before the Parliament's recess for the 2017 Elections, that a Sudden, UnExpected Move pushed for a Hasty, UnPrepared, Last-Minute Vote, (withOut Any Previously Serious and open Public Debate among Citizens in the Society), which Adopted a Draft Law due to Impose that Highly Controversial "Same Sex Marriage" and "Adoption" of Children by Homosexuals : But it's Not yet due to Enter into Force before the 1st October, (i.e. soon After those Elections), while various Groups have already Announced their Intention to also Challenge that Controversial Bill to the Constitutional Court, Headquartered at nearby Karlsruhe, asap, because of its Contradiction to the National Constitution, which clearly speaks only about Natural, Traditional Marriage between a Man and a Woman.


=> So, that "Hot" and Topical Issue (in Addition, naturally, to the Parallel, still On-going, "Hot" Debate about that sudden "Tsunami" of more than 1,5 Millions of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants tresspassing inside Europe through Neighbouring Turkey from 2015-2016, as well as Islamist Terrorism's parallel, extended and growing Deadly/Destructive Attacks, cowardly Targetting Innocent Civilian People, systematically), was, obviously, due to Influence also these, September 2017, German Elections.


- F.ex., inter alia, Rightist "Alternative" Party's main Spokesperson, Mrs Frauke Petry, had already Announced, at the Eve of that Electoral Competition, that she Expected to "Welcome many Conservative ChristianDemocrat People" (from the Governing, mainstream Center-Right Party), traditionally Supporters of Natural Family and Natural Births.


+ And a very Big Majority, of More than 75 % among the Governing ChristianDemocrat/EPP "CDU/CSU" Parties' MPs, indeed, VOTED (on July 30, 2017) at the Parliament in Berlin, AGAINST that "Same Sex Marriage" controversial Bill, (including even Chancellor Angie Merkel herself)...


In consequence, that controversial Bill passed Only with a Push from the Parties of the Left and the Greens, but Despite More than 75% of "NO" Votes from the Governing ChristianDemocrats, and withOut Any Participation from the Rightists of "AfD", which had Not Yet Entered in the German Parliament then...

 

 Already, Berlin's catholic ArchBishop, Heine Koch, (who had often criticized the AfD in the Past) Warned that such a Controversial and Hasty Decision would "Strengthen the Alternative" party AfD, if some are pushed to see it as the only one which currently supports the main Christians' positions in such topical issues...


=> So that, Indeed, the German People really "Punished", precisely, the "Socialist" and "Green" Parties (while Leftists stagnated) during these, subsequent, National Elections, (for this and other Topical Issues : Comp. Supra), where they Faced a Historic Backlash, Falling Down to an UnPrecedentently Low level of Votes, (particularly the Most Important and formerly "Big" among them : the "Socialists", who were Surprized by that Fall, etc).


+ On the Contrary, the Rightists of the "Alternative" ("AfD"), in Yesterday's Election Won much More Votes than all Polls had Predicted for them, UnExpectedy Advancing from a 9% or 10% only, (generally Expected to Assimilate them with Other 3 Small Parties of Leftists, Liberals and Greens), Up to a 13+% or 14% of Votes, Succeeding not only to Enter for the First Time in Germany's National Parliament, but Also to Become the 3rd Biggest Party in the Most Populated and Richest European Country, as well as Head of the Opposition.


But, may be Due also to the Strange Fact that, curiously, a Short Time Before these Elections, and withOut any Warning, suddenly, some pushed at the Top Job of 1 among the 2 Campaign Chiefs an Individual UnKnown yet to the People, who, Later-on, proved to be a Lesbian living also at a 2nd Home, in Switzerland, with another Homosexual Woman, and even Kept Together 2 Children there, as Non-Contradicted Press Reports, meanwhile, Revealed, it's also a Fact that Many Found (including its Chief until now, Frauke Petry) that the "Alternative" did Not get as much Votes as it could have Expected, (particularly after a CDU/CSU's "U-Turn", which Allowed that Last-Minute Vote in the Out-Going Parliament on "SSM", etc : Comp. Supra)...


=> That was, most Probably, at least one of the Reasons or Motivations for which, suddenly, its Number 1 Leader, Frauke Petry, just Announced her Decision to Refuse to participate to the Parliamentary Group that her Lesbian collegue is due to Co-Chair in Berlin's Bundestag, preferring to be an Independent MP, and Exceptionally leaving Out from a collective Press Conference organized with her in the name of the AfD on the Results of these Elections Today !


At least one more AfD Elected MP reportedly will Follow Petry's move, while all the Medias and the People are still Wondering to find out which were the full Real Reasons from what Happened...

>>> But, the Most Important New Development, concerning the above-mentioned Controversy, is that, in Fact, many among the People of Germany seem to have already Understood that sudden Problem, with 1 among the 2 AfD Top Candidates, - who even pushed the ball so far that she also ...Advised Homosexuals to become AfD's Members, in order to Turn it into "the Most pro-LGBT Party in the Country" (sic !), as she had recently Boasted in a Pre-Electoral Public Meetings according to Press Reports - , and they Voted Accordingly :


=> Thus, among other relevant Facts, f.ex., the Historic Leaders of the "Alternative", who were in Favour of the Natural Family and Natural Births, such as, f.ex., Frauke Petry, a.o., (Comp. Supra), Clearly Won their Election from the outset, by Directly Receiving a Majority of Votes on their personal Name, right from the start !


+ On the Contrary, the proved-to-be Lesbian Co-Chair of this Electoral Campaign (Comp. Supra), despite all Publicity she took on the Medias during the Electoral Debates, she Curiously ... Failed to be Directly Elected, receiving Less than a Small Minority of Only 10 % of Direct Votes in her Name, at her own Constituency... (So that she wouldN't even be Elected at all, if the Total of Votes for her Party, AfD, in general, did not allow that, at a 2nd Share of unused, left-over, anonymous votes, Later on)...


++ But her Co-Leader of the AfD Electoral Campaign, veteran, Old Conservative Politician, Alexander Gauland, (who was among the First to call for a Legal Complaint against that Controversial Draft Law at the Costitutional Court), Contrary to her, Succeeded to Win ...More than the Double Number of Votes than her : Instead of Only 10%, he Personaly  got from the People, on his Name and at his own Constituency, ... 22 % of Direct Votes !

 ------------------------

  Meanwgile, the fact that, sometimes, certain AfD politicians might seem or even really be more or less Controversial, in personal terms as Individuals, does Not Change at all what is our Main Interest here, since it was also Found, in his Sunday's Election, that often, many German Voters may Choose an CDU/CSU Candidate, in the Personal Vote, but, on the Contrary, prefer the AfD at theie Party-preference vote ! Indeed, the German Electoral System provides for 2 Votes : One for a Person, and afterwards, another for a Political Party. So that Votes for ChristianDemocrats/EPP Candidates personally, might practically mean, for a Voter, that he would like the Personality of a ChristiaDemocrat EPP Member, but would prefer for him/her to endorse the Political Positions of the "Alternative", either inside the CDU/CSU, or by acceeding into the "AfD" itself, sooner of later...

------------------------


+++ Even More and Various concrete Facts appear to show that Many People in Germany already started to React to those Hasty, Last-Minute Attempts to Impose them the Controversial "Same Sex Marriage" and even "Adoptions" of Children by Homosexuals, withOut any Previous Warning, Neither any Open Public Debates (Comp. Supra) :


- Indeed, it's also Among that Tiny Minority of Less than 23% of Establishment's CDU/CSU Out-Going MPs who recently Betrayed their Party's Commitments to the People in favour of Natural Family and Births, by Voting, on the Contrary, for "SSM" only 1 Day before their previous Mandate Ends (Comp. Supra), that several did Not receive enough Votes from in these Elections...


=> F.ex., at least in one case among Many possible, (and probably much Better : See Infra), at a Nearby Constituency of Rasttat, (where a Top MP had Betrayed his Party's Commitments, going for "SSM" inside the Parliament), the Out-Going CDU/CSU, surprisingly did Not Receive but Only a Small Portion of its usual Number of Votes there, Falling Down to an Exceptionally Low level, (While, on the Contrary, almost All Other surrounding Constituencies, at the Neighbouring Areas, Succeeded to get a more or less Normal Share of Votes, and Most even Got much More than the Average of their CDU/CSU Party Nation-wide !


Such Examples of Popular Reactions, Down-Voting those MPs of the Establishment who Betrayed the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party's Official Commitments (Comp. Supra), may probably be found also at Many Other Concrete Cases, accross the Country, (f.ex., perhaps also near Constanze lake, etc).


Indeed, they could be an Additional Cause for an Exceptionally Heavy Fall of CDU.CSU Votes Now, never seen before in Recent History, (Obviously in Addition to the Mass Migration/Islamist Terror Attacks parallel controversies).


This might also Explain why All the Polls Never Predicted such a Sharp Fall, generally showing at least +4% or +5% (sometimes even Higher) of Votes More to all the out-going CDU/CSU former MPs, than what they received finally...


=> Therefore, it would be Certainly Interesting to Carefully and Deeply Examine and Analyse all the Real Facts about What exactly Happened to those Few CDU/CSU Out-going MPs who even Openly Betrayed their Party's Commitments to the People, (suddenly, without any previous Warning, and even without any Open Public Debate for their Citizens : Comp. Supra), on that Last Day of the Out-going Parliament in Berlin, on June 30, 2017, in order to Find out what the German People really did now about them.


Astonishingly, however, this Time, too many usually good Sources for concrete Details of German Elections, Contrary to the Past, suddenly Started to show some UnPrecedented "Technical" or other "Practical" Problems, (including mainly at the Internet), which Exceptionally Delayed or even Block Until Now, the Full plain Facts on What Really Happened in Many "Key" Constituencies accross Germany !


+ Moreover, at the Last Minute, practically OverNight, suddenly, the Total Number of Elected MPs was ... Exceptionaly Augmented, extending to Dozens More, withOut Clear Reasons, Neither a Clear Previous Warning : Could it, Perhaps, be, because of a (tehnically possible) Last-Minute Attempt, precisely, to HIDE that Popular Reaction, which seems to have tried to "Sanction" those MPs who had Betrayed their Party's Commitments to the People, also on Natural Family and Natural Births (Comp. Supra) ?


Hopefully, we shall learn the whole Truth, one day...


>>> But Now, obviously, TIME IS PRESSING at Alabama's widely Symbolic Vote !


=> Perhaps, TO UPDATE asap....
--------------------------------


(NDLR :  Trump's venue to a brief meeting in Alabama, (where he reportedly went also for anOther reason), with the participation of Moore's Competitor, Stranger, (a Non-Elected yet Senator, simply Appointed by a notoriously Corrupted former Governor, some suspect in exchange of closing his eyes contrary to the Duty that Stranger had, in the Past, to investigate any such alleged wrong-doing), apparently, should Not be over-estimated :


Among many and various other factors, Trump currently is, notoriously Pressured by USA's "Deep State", his "Socialist" Competitors of the Dem. Party, and some RINOS among GOP's Establishment, (always Opposed to him, even during the Electoral Campaign of 2016, that he Won UnExpectedly, by a Last-Minute Widely Spread Move of American People), Targetting Both his main Policies (even if they Won the Elections) and even him Personally, and part of his own Family...


In Addition, nowadays, he Needs the slightest eventual Support, particularly inside the Senate (where GOP's Majority still remains at Only 4 Votes, RINOS of the Establishment included), for the Year which preceeds the Autumn 2018 forthcoming Mid-Term Senatorial and Congress Elections.


While still Backing Stranger, after a very Heavy and Persisting Lobbying (almost Harassment, as several mainstream Medias describe..) by Establishlent's notorious RINOS, including, mainly, the Controversial Out-Going GOP Senate Majority's current Head, the Old McConnel, (who, curiously, Spends Many Millions $ for one Primary Election in Alabama, which has Never seen Before so much  Money there !), nevertheless, Trump has also, "Congratulated" Judge Roy Moore for his Victory in the 1st Round of this Primary GOP Election, (where he Succeeded to come 1st among more than Ten Competitors), and also Promissed to "Fight for him"  (Moore) at the Final Electoral Vote against the "Socialist" (Dem. Party's) Competitor, on December, "if he (Moore) Wins" Now, (i.e. in this Final Vote of GOP's crucial Primaries, expected to Determine, in fact, the New Senator, due to GOP's traditionally Dominant position in Alabama).  

But, most Polls have already shown, many times, that Moore had a Double-Digit Lead in potential Voters, Ahead of Stranger.


And, in Addition to Winning the 1st Round of GOP's Primaries, last August 2017 (See : ...), Moore has also Received, recently, the Backing of the 3nd and 4rd former Competitors, (Brooks and Pittman), Hoping to Add to his 40% of Voters also Brooks' 20% and Pittman's 6%, i.e. expecting, normally, a clear Majority of about 66%, more or less, in this 2nd and Final Round of GOP's Primary now.


Moreover, the Popular Judge Roy Moore (and his Anti-Establishment political positions) has practically ... Won the Sympathy of almost All among the Warmest Supporters of New US President Don Trump, whi Helped Elect him on 2016 !


F.ex., among Many Others, Moore has also been Endorsed also by the Popular former US vice-Presidential Candidate Sarah PALIN, (formr Alasca Governor); Trump's former Campaign Manager and White House's Chief Strategy Advisor Steve BANNON ; Trump-appointee and former US Presidential Candidate, now Minister for Urban development and Housing, Dr. Ben CARSON ; Popular former Front-runner US Presidential Candidate (2008 +2016) and Governor of Arkansas, currently TV Journalist, Mike HUCKABEE (a Supporter of Trump, who even selected his Daughter for White House Press Spokeswoman) ; Alabama's own former Governor Fob JAMES, and former Alabama's Chair of GOParty and former Senator, Bill ARMISTEAD, as well as Alabama's "TEA PARTY" Organisation, All with a rare Experience on ths spot ; several Top, USA-wide JOURNALISTS, such as Ann COULTER, Sean HANNITY ("Fox News"+), Mark LEVIN, Laura INGRAHAM, Daniel HOROWITZ, etc ; Many US elected CONGRESSMEN such as, f.ex. : Rep. Mo BROOKS, Steve KING, Jim JORDAN, Jody HICE, Louie GOHMERT, Thomas MASSIE, Mark MEADOWS, etc ; several former USA SENATORS ; even Famous "BREXIT" main Inspirator, President of EU Parliament's "Freedom and Direct Democracy" Group, many times re-Elected Brittish MEP and Journalist Nigel FARAGE ; "WOMEN FOR TRUMP" Political Action Committee from active Grassroots Citizens Nation-Wide ; Phil ROBERTSON, popular self-made CEO and Star of "Duck Dynasty", as well as World Famous Cinema Actor Chuck NORRIS ; (etc).


=> Various Public Meetings and other popular gatherings and moves to support Judge Roy Moore were reportedly still on-going at the Time that these lines were written and/or due to comme asap.

 If this Highly Symbolic Alabama Vote goes well for Moore, then, such a New Fact might set in Motion a Growing series of Changes, (considering also the Fact that almost All US Presidential Candidates at GOP's 2016 Primaries were Initialy United against Obama-imposed "Same Sex Marriage" + "Adoption" of Children by Homosexuals, while President Trump did not exclude, but reportedly said that he would "Consider" a possible move to Change the Supreme Court's case-law back towards the original principles of the US Constitution), American People's decision could, eventually Help also European People to face similar attempts against Natural Family annd Natural Births. 

 

And this, might even arrive Sooner than expected : That Controversial New Law will Not Enter into Force in Germany but Only After the 1st of October, and one or more Legal Complaints to the Country's Constitutional Court are expected...

Benedict's "Source" to revitalize Europe : - "The World needs Hope", Pope says, calling to relaunch E.U. via Human Rights !

Paris - Lourdes - Strasbourg : 12 - 17 September 2008.

The vital need to re-launch Europe can be succesfully met by defending fundamental Human Rights of the People, said Pope Benedict XVI in his 1st speech in France, at his meeting with President Nicolas Sarkozy, who currently chairs the EU.

Sarkozy replied by welcoming Christian and other religions' contribution to indispensable Public Debates on crucial issues which affect Human Dignity, Europe, even Humankind, as BioGenetics.

- "When Europeans will see and personally experience that the inalienable Rights of the Human Person .., those of their free Education, their Family life, their Work, ..their Religious Rights, ..are respected and promoted, then, these Europeans will fully understand the greatness of the European construction and will be actively involved in it", Benedict XVI stressed.

- "It's important that during France's EU Presidency, there is, indeed, a desire for the Church to contribute to protect Human Person's integrity, and I think that there is also a growing Conscience, beyond any polemics, to defend Human Rights, and, thus, contribute to ensure respect for Human Dignity", added to "EuroFora" the Pope's Spokesman, Vatican's Press Director Federico Lombardi.

- "Nobody really told us here that Lisbon Treaty was good for this or that reason to the People. They only told us that we "had" to ratify it, and tried to scare us, but failed", said 2 Irish pilgrims to "EuroFora", after 2 Majority Abstentions in 1999 and 2004 EU Elections and 3 "NO" to Referenda in France and the Netherlands in 2005, followed by the Irish "No" in 2008, during a Decade of EU Crisis since the controversial Turkey EU- bid (1999-2008).

More than .."224 cases of Murders, Torture, "Disappearancies" or Destructions" by "agents of Turkish Security forces", where all those responsible for so heavy Crimes still remain scandalously unpunished, despite regular condemnations of Ankara by Strasbourg''s European Court of Human Rights from 1996 to 2008, were examined the same week by CoE's Ministers, who decided to launch a fresh call "urging" the Turkish Authorities to end this dangerous "virtual Impunity" of criminals, without comparison to European countries.

- "Why not Ukraine, instead of Turkey ?", asked EuroFora a Journalist from "Kiev : the city where it's enough to cross the streets in order to realize that it's a European town", as Sarkozy recently said, before solemnly declaring this week, together with Ukranian President Jushenko and EU Commission's chair Baroso, EU's "recognition that Ukraine is a fully European Country, linked to Europe by culture and History".

dsc00941_400



Europe's "Christian roots" and Values, with "openess and mutual respect" to other cultures and beliefs, were highlighted by Sarkozy in harmony with Benedict XVI.

The Human person should be protected "from his inception until his natural death", added the Pope, faithful to BioEthic principles defended by his predecessor and collaborator, John Paul II, of topical importance in France, Europe and the World today, as Sarkozy announced :

- "Fast and important progres in Genetic Science and procreation raise delicate BioEthical Questions to our Democracies", which "involve our view of Humans and Life, and can lead to Social Mutations. That's why they cannot remain only a business of experts", hestressed.

- "It's Politician's responsibility to set a proper framework for such Public Debates", as "France will do on BioEthics in 2009". "Religious and Philosophic traditions must take part, with their ideas and centuries' long experience : A positive Laicity is an open invitation to Dialogue", he said.

- "France engaged in Europe at another Debate on how to make Financial Capitalism more moral", and the "Social doctrine of the Church fits well what is at stake in modern Globalized Economy"

- "But, a "Real Dialogue is not for an elite of a Globalized world : It penetrates deep into the People : That's why Churches should actively participate : .. It's bringing New Oxygen to Public Debates", stressed Sarkozy.

- "Democracy must not be cut off Reason", which is "compatible with Faith", thanks to "the meeting between Christianism and Greek philosophy ", he added, referring to Pope's views. "It means to advance with logic arguments, search what's best and respect common principles of thinking :... It's an everyday need for Public Administration and the Political Debate", he added.
----------------------------
Pope Benedict's 1st visit to France looked like the start of a brillant, manifold demonstration that this was well-founded and could become true in the lives of the People : After its Theoretical foundations unfolded at a "speech to the world of Culture", inaugurating Bernadins' cultural centre, and its dogmatic instrument shaped at an address to the Clergy in the Historic Notre Dame' Cathedral, he started to resolutely reach out to the People :

dsc01185_400



The move went upwards like Bach's music : Begining with a call to more than fifteen thousand enthousiastic Youngsters gathered at Notre Dame's parvis with overnight celebrations, it gained strength in an impressive open-air Mass at Paris'central Invalides'area facing Alexander III's bridge, attended by more than 150.000 people, French Prime Minister Fillon, many Ministers, Foreign Ambassadors, etc, and culminated in a series of pan-European Mega-meetings at Lourdes 150th anniversary, together with all French Bishops, EU Commission's vice-Chairman Barrot, and some 200.000 enthousiastic People from all over Europe and beyond : After a Sea of Lights astonishingly braved Saturday Night's rain, an open-air mass at riverside fields among Pyrenees' Mountains Sunday Morning, was followed on Monday by a Sea of "Compassion" to those facing Health or Life threats, surrounded by an endless gathering of People, whose gigantic dimensions obviously surprised the organisers..

Meanwhile, Benedict had the occasion to speak to the French Priests at Notre Dame of Paris, and with the Bishops at Lourdes, where they prepare a crucial November plenary meeting, due to take important decisions on imminent EU debates and choices about Europe's identity, BioEthics, etc.
-------
- "A new way of thinking about Laicity has become necessary", agreed the Pope with President Sarkozy at Elysee. While keeping the "distinction between Politics and Religion, to guarantee Citizens' Liberty", "religion is important for shaping Consciousness and contributing, together with others, to create a basic Ethical Consensus in society".

- "Searching Essential realities", (as "God" for christians), needs "Speech : "Logos" in greek, i.e. Reason", "able to shape a Community","with creative work transforming Human History". But "Dialogue" is instrumental for "Reason", because it's the way to "search" for Truth", in "Liberty", according to Greek Platonic Philosophy, with Socrates' dialectics. "Reason" implies "Spirit and Liberty", hence the polyphonic "Music" of "Dialogue", in a responsible, "well balanced" way, to avoid "destruction".

Starting with a "Dialogue between christians and intellectual or artistic movements" highlighted at Bernardins' Cultural Center. with former Presidents Chirac and Giscard d'Estain, UNESCO's chair Anastassopoulos, etc., as well as representatives of Muslim Communities, (including a separate Turkish), after contacts with Jews at Vatican's Embassy, the Pope turned towards the People :

-------------------
To French Priests : "Church built on the rock" !
---------------------

dsc01076_400


- Speaking to thousands of French Priests at Notre Dame's Cathedral, Benedict highlighted a solid "Church built on the Rock" of conscious and active persons, transmitting "a lively, energetic and sharp" "God's Speech, actively working on Human History".

pope_benedict_at_notre_dame_close_400

"Praying together" with "representatives of Christian Churches and ecclesiastic communities", (as Orthodoxes, Armenians, Protestants, etc), he called "to reinforce the Unity of the church", against "any form of Division", around Holy Spirit', "the Word","Christ's Justice", and "Love" to fellow- humans : Essentials which "resume all holy scripts", as he said.

-----------------------
To Young People : "New Horizons"
------------------------
To some 15.000 enthousiastic Young People at Notre Dame's parvis, along Seine's river, Benedict spoke about "the Energy of the Holy Spirit" and "the Mystery of the Cross" : - "The Holy Spirit opens New Horizons to Human Intelligence .. and makes it conscious of the real greatness of Christ's sacrifice, dying and resurecting for World's life".

a_young_volunteer_watches_pope_benedict_speak_to_young_people_at_notre_dame_s_parvis_400
Some "may slander you as crazy, laugh at you, or even persecute you. But, "the Holy Cross is a symbol of God's love", and "givesmoral strength" : "Witness of People's pains, it's at the same time, a precious, unique expression of their Hopes", he told them at Paris' dawn.

Invalides' plateau : "People chosen to become God's friends"
---------------------------------------
At the 1st open-air Mass in Paris' center area of Invalides, facing the Grand Palais, along the river Seine, during an impressive gathering of more than 150.000, French Prime Minister Fillon, Ministers Alliot-Marie, Bachelot, Dati, Jouyet, Assembly's President Accoyer, Senate's Chair Poncelet, former 1st Lady Bernadette Chirac, former Prime Minister Raffarin, many foreign Ambassadors, and other political personalities were present. (While earlier, from the Socialist opposition, Paris' Mayor Delanoye, artist Robert Hussein a.o. assisted at the Elysee meeting).

But the "Entry Song" focused on the "People chosen to become God's Friends". The September 11 mass was Dedicated to "Saint Chrysostomus, that great priest of Constantinople", with his "wonderful eloquence and great courage to face challenges", who "made out of despaired and godless people, a people of brothers", opening a possibility to "become all one complete entity", as Pope Benedict reminded.

- "Reason never enters in real contradiction with Faith", stressed Pope Benedict, who prepared his speeches for France during a short Summer rest at Brixen/Bressanone's Seminar, whose Library honors both "Faith and Science".. - "We must use not only our Reason, but also our Faith" : "Get away from Idolatry", "cupidity", "avidity for money, power or even knowledge deviating from essential aims", and other "falses appearances". and "build your Home on the Rock", "with the force that Holy Spirit gives to those who let it act in them", he said to the People of Paris.

Benedict at Lourdes : - "Become Light (even) in the Dark !"
------------------------------------------------------------------
- "Our World needs Hope", stressed Pope Benedict, addressing an impressive TorchLight procession at Lourdes' sanctuaries, where a Sea of Lights held by Hundreds of Thousands of People gathered at Pyrenee's Mountains from all over Europe astonishingly kept their flames despite a heavy Rain at a windy Dark Night...

- "150 years earlier (1858 - 2008), ..here, in the cave, ... a simple young girl, Bernadette .. saw a Light". "The everyday life of her Family was, however, made of Misery, Sadness, Sickness, Misunderstandings, Rejection and Poverty... It was hard to live in Jail". Today, "we think to all Human Beings who suffer : The innocent Victims who face Violence, War, Terrorism, Hunger, Injustices, Catastrophes, Hate and Oppression, Violations of Human Dignity and of their fundamental Rights, of their Liberty to act and think. We also think to those who face Familial problems, sufferings from Unemployment, Sickness, Infirmity, Isolation, or their situation as Immigrants, without forgetting those who suffer and die for the name of Christ", he said.

- "But the Shadows of the Earth, did not hinder Sky's Light to shine : <<The Light shines in the Dark>>" ..."A Way full of Light opens in Human History even in its Darkest moments" : ..."As Night falls, Christ tels us : <<- Keep your Lamps alight !>>."Hold a Light while walking in the Night .. sums up our condition as Christians on their way : "We need light, and we are called to become Light !", Benedict stressed to People setting in motion Lights, Flags and Songs with enthousiasm.

"<<- She looked at me as a Person, who speaks to another Person>>, the poor girl had noted."Light emerges from such a Dialogue", stressed the Pope : "A small Flame called Hope, Compassion and Tenderness dwells inside those who return after being moved by Lourdes' experience". "Christ .. entrusts us with the Mission to let the Light of Charity shine : To make of our Prayers an Act of Love to our brothers and to Fraternal Charity", he concluded.
