*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- After even Today's explicit Confirmation, by Confession of the Culprit himself, that the Knife Attack which Targetted and Killed 1 and Wounded 6 Civilian Victims (including in Life-Threatening situation, including 2 Young Girls and an Old Man, etc) by a self-styled so-called "Asylum Seeker" from the Middle East, earlier  this Month in Hamburg, crying "Allah-Akbar" and aggressing People at Random, according to several Eye-Witnesses, was, indeed, committed with Islamist Terrorist Aims, many Convergent Key Facts clearly show that, Recently, a Big, Wide and Dangerous Gap in States' Duty to Protect EU Citizens' Lives, emerged and is still Spreading, even at the Heart of Europe, more and more Terrorized by the Repetition of such UnPrecedended but avoidable Tragedies.

The Main point is that the Hamburg Killer was already Known for having been Dangerously Radicalized recently towards Islamist Extremism (including by Visiting a Controversial Mosque in Hamburg), but, even if he did Not have Any Personal Link in Germany, (he didn't even Speak at all the Language of the Country, where he had just arrived after being Refused in Norway), and Despite the Fact that his Demand for Asylum had been Rejected, without lodging any Appeal, so that, normaly, he should either Leave that EU Country, or be Expulsed, Nevertheless, he was Scandalously let Free to Stay, Move, violently Attack and cowardly Kill and Wound innocent Civilian People in Markets and at the Street, without the competent Public Authorities doing practically anything to prevent that, (as various EU Citizens or Politicians already Denounced).

A Similar situation was, mutatis-mutandis, found also in the case of anOther recent Mass Murderer in Berlin's Christmas Market, who Cowardly Targetted and Killed at least 12 innocent Civilian People (including a Deaf Young Girl, etc),  with a Heavy Truck, that he had Stolen from a Polish Driver, Murdering him earlier that same Day (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/berlinmassacreandrussianambassadormurderinturkey.html) : He was also known to have been Recently Radicalized towards Islamic Extremism, including by Visiting frequently a Turkish Mosque part of the Notorious and Controversial Turkish Network of DITIB, in fact controlled by the Foreign, Ankara's Government, which also Choses, Trains, Pays, and Appoints itself its "Imams" abroad, recently found even to systematicaly ...Spy various Citizens in Germany, provoking a wide-spread Scandal. Moreover his Asylum Demand had Not been Accepted too, but he was, nevertheless, Free, in practice, to still Stay in that important EU Country, (even despite reported accusations of serious Drug Traffick involvement, according to recent Police Reports)...

Such scandalous, Brutal Deadly Incidents were Topicaly Reminded, Earlier this Week also in France, where the New President, Emmanouel Macron, made a landmark Speech (against Divisions that seek to provoke ISIS' Terrorists in fact Ennemies of Humanity), at the 1st Anniversary (26 July 2017) of the cold-blood Murder of old Christian Piest, father Hamel, cowardly Attacked inside the Church, during the Holy Mass, and Killed with his throat cut by knife, by 2 Thugs, who Wounded also other Civilians among the Faithful, one very seriously on 2016 (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/churchattackforeseen.html) :  At least one of those Brutal Coward Islamist Terrorists had been Known, him too, as Radicalized towards Islamist Extremism, and had even Visited Syria in the recent Past, while Informations about an Imminent Attack against a Christian Church in France had recently reached the Security Services . But, despite all that, again the future Killers had been left Free to stil Stay in France, and even Move around at their Town, including towards that Church...

Similar Fatal Security "Gaps" also in the case of a Turkish former "Jihadist" at ISIL-Occupied Syria, living around Strasbourg, not only Before, but even After his recent Return, and visiting a Turkish Mosque (with 2 Minarets, also Member of that notorious and Controversial DITIB Network : Comp. Supra) at a recently Islamized Suburb of the City (Meinau), who became one among the Cold-Blood Murderers targetting and Killing Many Dozens of Innocent Civilian People at the Mass Attacks by Islamist Terrorists on November 2015 in Paris, at "Bataclan" and other locations: He had been practically let Free to Stay and Move in France, (at least enough in order to Kill: See http://www.eurofora.net/brief/brief/strasbourgturkishmosquenetworkforparisdeadlyterrorist.html).

But it was the Recent 4 Knives, Cars, and Bomb Killings in the UK, (Three Times in London and One in Manchester)  which really Started to (indirectly but surely) Reveal what was really Going On, throughout almost all the EU, or, at least, in Most of it :


Indeed, after the case of a Somali Youngster (arrived via Norway, as the Hamburg Killer: Comp. Supra), who Brutally Attacked with a Knife 6 Civilian People, killing an aged American Woman and Wounding the rest, some very Seriously, Near the Brittish Museum, around Russel Square in London, on 2016 without the Local UK Police saying anything yet about his recent intense Islamization, that various Eye Witnesses as well as simple Web Searches (including by "Eurofora") revealed with many concrete Facts, (See, f.ex., among others, also: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/lnopolicemanatlondonknifemassterrorattack.html),

 manchester_bomber_salman_ramadan_amedi__father_back_to_libya_400

came the Mass Bombing Attack against mainly Young Girls at a Music Concert in Manchester,  on May 2017, where a Libyan, Salman Ramadan Abedi, given Asylum and even Citizenship in the UK, visiting a Mosque in a converted Church given by the Socialist Municipality,

 manchester_islamist_bomber_was_in_mosque_from_converted_church_400

(whose Family had Returned to Libya, while he was Travelling back and forth, including in Turkey) cowardly Targetted and Killed 23 innocent Civilian People, including Children (as, f.ex. 8 years old girl Saffie Rose Roussos, from Cyprus):, and Wounded 250.

Meanwhile, 2 more Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attacks took place in London :

 khalid_masoud_islamist_killer_at_westminster_london_2017_400

On March 2017 Attack, by Car and Knife, at Westminster, a notoriously Extremist Islamist (Khalid Massoud, among various Names he used), revendicated by ISIS, cowardly Aggressed and Wounded 51 (Fifty one) unarmed People, Killing 5, in a Violent Aggression Acknowledged as "Islamist Terrorism" by the British Authorities, (Comp., f.ex. : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/churchsavesfromislamicterror.html , etc).

This was closely Followed by the June 2017 Attacks at London Bridge, by 3 other Islamist Extremists (un of Pakistani and two of Morocco origin), who abused of a Van and Knives in order to Kill 8 and Wound 48 innocent, unarmed People.


 london_bridge_2017_islamist_terrorist_gang_murderers_trio_eurofora_patchwork_400

Their Chief, a Paki Extremist who had scandalously been Hired by London City Subway Public Transports, and Vainly Denounced Many Times to London Police for Dangerous Islamist Extremism (and even alleged links to Violent Terrorists), had already been Filmed and Published in British TV, Last Year (2016), while Leading a Group of integrist Muslims wearing Old Arab clothes to Pray in a London Public Park with an ISIL-like Flag, at a (premonitory) program named : - "The Jihadist next door" !

Brittish Prime Minister, (an Experienced former JHA Minister), Theresa May reportedly denounced "Tarrorism" inspired by an "Islamist Extremist" Ideology, which is a "Perversion of Islam".


>>> But the most Worrying point, (Comp. Supra), were subsequent Information, published in British and American Medias, that the real Reason for which such Brutal Criminals, most already known to be sharply Islamized Violent Extremists, had Not been Timely Prevented from Killing and Wounding so many innocent Civilian People, would rather be the Fact that the Total Number of such Dangerous Islamist Extremists in the UK had recently (particularly during the Latest 15- 20 Years : around 1997-2017) Grown up to such Huge Proportions, that it, allegedly, was practicaly Impossible to really Monitor all of them, continuously and in real time, by the competent Police/Security staff !...


 + If such an (obviously Unacceptable and Scandalous) Pretext, appeared First in the UK, only indirectly and reportedly (Comp. Supra), Nowadays, after the Latest Islamist Extremism-related Deadly Terrorist Attack in Hamburg (Germany : Comp. Supra), things became Harsher:


=> Now, it's, indeed, even Directly and Explicitly, that the Mayor of Hamburg, Grote, (a Socialist) openly Claimed that the Number of the (already Known) Dangerous Islamist Extremists residing in that City, (apparently "More than 800"), had recently become so Big, that the available Competent Authorities'  agents would be "Insufficient" in order to Saveguard and Guarantee Citizens' Safety by simply Monitoring all those key Suspects !


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


++ Even More Astonishing, since the Beginning of 2017, is the case of a Portorican origin Muslim Convert,  immigrant in the USA, who travelled from Alaska to Florida, in order to Kill, there, 5 innocent Civilian People and Wound another 6, by Firing on them with his Gun, inside the Fort Lauderdale Airport, during Obama's term of office, (early January 2017).

 
 
alsaska__florida_massacre_by_islamized_foreign_immigrant_in_usa_eurofora_patchwork_400_01 


Several Independent Investigators found soon concrete Web a.o. evidence that the Culprit had, indeed, been intensively Islamized, already a Long Time ago, even if he had grown a Beard, resided Near a Mosque, and revealed a Violent Behavior recently, while, during his 1st Hearing in Court, soon after his Crime, he reportedly Acknowledged Islamist Motivations : The Deadly Shooter confessed that he was "Inspired by ISIS", acted "on Behalf" of ISIS, and had also Chatted on the Web with "Jihadists" Plotting Attacks, FBI Agents told the Court.


>>> But, most Important, he had already Addressed himself to FBI Services, Earlier in Alaska, Explicitly Warning them that he had been Watching ISIS' Propaganda Videos, Chatted in the Web with Islamist Extremists, including about Terrorist acts, and Felt Pushed to Commit Deadly Terrorist Crimes asap., including with his Gun, that he had Given to the Authorities !


=> Nevertheless, astonishingly, Obama's US Authorities, after ordering only a Local "Mental" Test, had soon Droped that case, Let him Go Free and withOut any Surveillance, and even ...Returned Back his Gun (that he used to Kill, a few Weeks Later)..

*** All these, Various but Converging Cases, (to which could be Added also several More such Affairs, practically Designing all Europe's Map, plus USA, etc.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/terrorismremindsrealeurope.html),

 20152017_islamist_terrorism_massacres_design_europes_map_eurofora_400

clearly Reveal a Blatant and Dangerous Security "Gap", Responsible for a Dangerous Failure to Protect Citizens' Lives even from Repeated and Growing Deadly Terrorist Attacks by Islamist Extremists, most of which, apparently, could and should have been Prevented.

 

 part__of_2016__2017_islamist_terrorism_massacres_the_sunuk_400_01


=> At least 4 key Questions are Raised, by all these Facts (and much More, revealing such Surprising Cases) :


(A) Who, and Why, lets so many Individuals be "Radicalized" in "Islamism" Heading towards Terrorism, and Widely Spread an "Extremist" and Dangerously Violent "Ideology", which has  already been Proven, Many Times, Deadly ?



(B) By Whom, and Why, are they, practically let Free to Kill ? (Some among the above mentioned concret Examples, are Scandalous, in this regard: Comp. Supra. + See also Infra).

 

(C) If even Rejected Asylum Seekers, withOut any Relation to a European Country, and Knowingly Islamized up to a Dangerous Extremism, are, in fact, left Free to Stay and Circulate inside Europe, among Defenseless Civilian European Citizens, as possible Targets of Deadly Attacks at any moment, (and something, mutatis-mutandis  Similar occured in Obama's era USA, with that Islamist Terrorist Killer who had Vainly Warned the FBI himself Beforehand: Comp. Supra), then, isn't the Danger obviously Too Big,  - and the Responsibility of those who provoke or let such Scandals multiply, Too Heavy !

 

(D) How Many More innocent Civilian Victims would have been Killed, if Citizens (f.ex. some Tunisians, in Hamburg's case) had Not Reacted themselves and Fought Back, (as well as Followed the Killer, Showing to the Police where he was going to hide/escape) ?

 

Indeed, even if such Dangerous potential Aggressors, Manipulated by a so-called "Islamist Extremism", might already exist inside the EU, the USA, Russia, etc., (as several UK Medias reported, and even Hamburg's Mayor claimed nowadays: Comp. Supra), then, Why all those Controversial and/or Suspect Mosques are still let Free to "Mushroom" almost everywhere  and Multiply, even inside Europe and the USA, during the Last 15-20 Years ? And Why all those Top European Politicians who had Recently proposed a Series of Concrete Security Measures to take against Dangerous Islamist Extremists, were all Droped, even withOut any serious Public Debate ?

 

-----------------------------------
HIGGINS' 2016 INTW.
-------------------------------------


+ As long as all these Topical and Key, Concrete Questions (Based on the above-Mentioned Facts, and much More), still remain UnAnswered, inevitably, the Stern Warnings and worrying Denonciations made by certain Critical People such as, f.ex., USA's White House new National Security Council's Director for Strategic Planning (under New US President Don Trump), Rich Higgins, (a former Defense Official and Lincoln Fellow, Clairmont Institute), f.ex. in an Interview already Published as Early as since July 2016 :


- In a Long Video Press Interview (which can be found here : http://dailycaller.com/2016/07/02/former-dod-official-warns-america-is-on-the-wrong-track-to-fighting-war-on-terror-video/   + http://players.brightcove.net/5107476400001/B1xUkhW8i_default/index.html?videoId=5229222259001
), Higgins makes  the following Main Points :

 usa_terrorpolitical_warfare_linked_the_higgins_review_v._dit_400

 

- In particular, the former DoD and recently White House Official  Warns about a very probable Complicity between some "Deep State" Bureaucrats and/or so-called "Globalists", with some apparently "Leftist" and mainly "Islamist" Extremists.


- He also Denounces an overall "Warfare" policy, which includes Both "Violent" and "Ideological" tools, coherently "Weaponized" against Countries Targetted and Attacked by Islamist Terrorism recently.


- A most Important part of such a Strategy acting as an "Ennemy", is to Attack Free Speech and Press Freedom, in order to Muzzle key Critical Voices, as well as to Deprive even Citizens from really Independent Viewpoints (including by Imposing some Excessive versions of so-called "Islamophobia" Pretext, recently), and/or any other Independent Means to Resist or React and Fight Back against Aggressors and/or their Instigators, so that all this would Weaken and ultimately Risk to Destroy the Democratic Critical Thinking of the "Civilisation" developed since the Enlightnment (18th AC) Century, (that Higgings names "Western", as US President Don Trump also did, at least partly, in his landmark Speech, at the Beginning of July 2017, in Poland, at the eve of Hamburg's "G-20" Summit).


Even if some might like to Dismiss such very Critical Hypothesis, as that of Higgin's stern Warning, they couldNot do so, (at least Not in a Convincing way), withOut having, previously, at least Found and Given some Crystal-Clear and plausible Answers to the Above-Mentioned 4 main Questions, raised by all those Recent Cases of Deadly islamist Terrorist Attacks in Europe, and even in the USA, which, apparently, Could and should have been Prevented (Comp. Supra).-

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.

pope_benedict_salutes_with_sarkozy_elysee_400 pope_benedict_speaks_at_elysee_palace__sarkoy_hears_400

- "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.
