*Strasbourg/- An Explosive Mixture, made out of recent Mass Migration from the Middle East, known but tolerated Radicalisation, fanatic Hate, galoping Islamisation, personal Conflicts, and more or less Exploitation of Social Allowances, Asylum Seeker Status, Social Housing, scandalous Cover-up on Fake "Unaccompagnied Children", Lobbies' Pressure to Hide the Truth, etc., as well as, further Revelations on that UnPrecedented "Tsunami" of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants of 2015/2016 through Turkey etc., Links among similar Suspects and Plans to collectively Infiltrate even further Europe's central Heart, but also the Worrying Finding that European People, in fact, have, until now, narrowlly Escaped to much Worse, Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attack's consequences, still Looming ahead, as things stand, are a Frightening Conclusion emerging from New Facts revealed at the latest London ISIL-inspired Attack in the Subway Metro...

Among many other relevant Facts :
 
     - The Subway Bomber, Ahmed Hassan, a Muslim from Iraq, had arrived "Irregularly" in Europe "on 2015", (according to Mainstream British Newspaper "Telegraph.co.uk").


I.e. the Same as, f.ex., at least 2 among the Deadly ISIL's armed Terrorists who killed Many People in Paris' "Bataclan" etc. Massive Attacks, already on November 2015. And the Afghan Knifeman who Attacked and Killed or Wounded several Innocent Civilian People inside a German Train near Wurzburg on Summer 2016. Or that Monster who Raped and Killed the Young Student Maria Landenburger at Freiburg on 2016 (where he's currently judged), after having also Raped even a Young Afghan Girl aged only 12, and Brutaly Attacked a Greek Girl at Corfu Island, and thrown her overboard, down from an 8 meter high wall, Wounding her seriously, just before advancing even further inside Europe without being stopped, (but, on the contrary, provided with various Social Advantages). Etc.+...

    - Among his 30 Wounded Victims is also a very Seriously Wounded Woman, with "Life Changing Injuries", who will have to spend more than 6 Months in various Surgery operations, etc., at the Hospital.


But, the Tragedy woud have been much More Destructive and Deadly, if that make-shift Bomb had not "Failed" to Explode completely, Contrary to what had been Planned, (f.ex. with a lot of sharp Metallic "Schrapnels" put inside, etc).


I.e., mutatis-mutandis, almost Similar to what had just happened, Shortly Before, at Barcelona (Spain), when a part of Numerous Gas Cylinders full of Explosives prepared for Later use, accidentaly exploded while still inside the Islamist Terrorists' House, Killing one (their alleged Chief : an Imam) and Alerting about the others, who, in consequence, did Not have had a chnce to use a Great Number of Gas Cylinders prepared for a Huge, Mass Bombing, which did'N't happen, (See, f.ex. : ...).


=> It's Frightening only to Think what would have happened if such Monsters did Not commit Blunders !


European People, obviously, canNot count, in Future, on the repetition of such Terrorists' technical errors, Neither base their Safety on them...
    
    - The Technical construction of the Latest London Subway Bomb was, reportedly, "Similar" to that of the 2017 Manchester mass Bombing, which Killed 23 and Wounded 220 Victims, (all Civiiian People, including Many Children or young girls).


+ ISIL's Deadly Islamist Terrorist Gang (which notoriously uses to systematically Target innocent Civilian People) already Revendicated this London Subway Attack, by its usual Web Channels. The Bomber is reportedly inspired by a "warped Political View" and "a Hatred" similar to that of Islamist Terrorists' community.


++ In Addition, this London Subway Bomber was, reportedly, Always Speaking, Meeting, Visited by, and Living closely Together with at least 2 Other Individuals, just before the Attack. Until Now, at least Six (6) Suspects among his Contacts have been Arrested, and 2 of them are Still Detained, while the Investigation is, reportedly, Evolving Fast. At least one among that Bomber's Contacts was known to have Long and very Frequent links with various Mosques, while Relatives of the Bomber had reportedly Complained because he had been entrusted to a Christian English Foster Familly, instead of a Muslim one. Together with one among his Frequent Contacts, this London Subway Bomber reportedly Planned to Travel to the European Continent, and Establish himself into the Netherlands. (Etc+).


=> Once again, even here, Facts show that the Time of comfortable Fantasies as such of the so-called "Lone Wolf", has definitively gone ! In fact, Islamist Terrorists are mostly Linked, in one way or another, with Networks of various supporters, accomplices, instigators, etc.


The Most Obvious concrete Examples of such Social Realities were, f.ex., already the November 2015 Paris' mass Deadly Attacks, at "Bataclan" and Elsewhere, (which Killed 130 People, and Injured 413), but, particularly the Recent, August 2017 Barcelona Attacks in Spain, (which Killed 14 and Injured about 130 People) :


Indeed, in this last case (Barcelona+), at least 12 Terrorism Suspects were Killed or Arrested, including (for the First Time) a radical Imam who was Leading them, and Collective Links to a Mosque, located at a City near France (Ripoll), were found. Many of them were Ready to Travel Collectively to Belgium, where that Imam/Terrorist Gang Chief seeked to Re-Establish himself at another Mosque in the Flamish Region. He had also Close Personal Links with anOther Mosque Leader, at Barcelona itself, who had been, in the Past, Arrested and Condemned for Islamist Extremism related to Terrorism, (but Finally liberated, after making Appeal, for Procedural issues), Together with Many Others, as Part of anOther and much Wider, Previous Terrorism Prevention operation by the Spanish Police, some Years Before.


At this Occasion, even reciprocal Political a.o. personal Interests' links were reportedly noticed, (f.ex. through Lawyers' and/or Lobbies' support, Political Clientelism, etc) at least with 2 Local/Regional Politicians : a Leading Member of the City Council, an Autonomist Catalan MP from the Same Party, etc. In Addition, a Converging/Facilitating Wider Socio-Political Context of Exceptionaly Fast Islamization, and a Record-High Massive Muslim Immigration in Recent Years at Catalonia, where Autonomist Leftist nPoliticians support Muslim Migrants' Demands for Voting Rights etc., in exchange of Socio-Electoral Support of Muslim Lobbies, were reportedly found,  (See, f.ex. : ...).


This Last Point, inevitably Reminds, mutatis-mutandis, the Different, (but interesting and almost Contemporary) Big Scandal of several Gangs of mainly Pakistani a.o. Muslim Non-European Migrants who notoriously were recently found, Judged and Condemned for Horrible Massive Rapes, Sexual Exploitation, Ill-Treatments, Blackmail, Threats, etc. of Thousands of Children in the UK during more than a Decade, with a blatant Complicity of many Local "Socialist" (Labour Party) Politicians, Civil Servants, etc., who were quasi-Systematically Covering up such Horrible Crimes, Dating particularly since the Tony Blair's controversial era, etc.

    - In the Present, London Subway Bomber case, the main Culprit, who had reportedly come "Irregularly" in the UK from the Middle East (via the UnPrecedented "Tsunami" of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants through Turkey), was Given "Refugee" Status, with relevant Financial, Legal and Social Benefits, was provided a Home with a Good Foster Family (previously awarded a Medal by the Queen for their services), and was even Recognized as ..."Child" (of "18 Years", i.e. at the Borderline, and Despite Looking as an Adult, 20 or more Years Old), with the result to Benefit also from another Series of various Social, Legal, a.o. Advantages, (including More Money, a School, a Family Home, and a Right to be treated in Courts with Special Rules made for "Children", etc). His Name was Hidden for Many Days after that Terrorist Attack, and the People have Not yet Seen the Face of that Bomber not even more than a Week after his Horrible Crime...
    
I.e. a Similar Case to those, f.ex., in Germany, where another Muslim Asylum Seeker from Asia suddenly launched a Brutal, Bloody Attack against a Family and Bypassers, with a Knife and an Axe, inside a Train, Wounding 6 or 7 innocent Civilian People, near Wurzburg on 2016, after getting Instructions from an ISIL Islamist Terrorist Liaison, and leaving a Written Message and Video threatening even More such Terror Aggressions against innocent Civlian People.


He had been, previously treated as a "Child" (sic !), receiving more Money, School and a Foster Family Home, etc, because he had Claimed to be "17" years old, even if he looked as an Adult, provoking Doubts.


This Month it's also at a ... "Childrens"' Court that is Judged another Horrible Criminal who also arrived in Germany with the 2015 "Tsunami" of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants through Turkey, after Raping an Aghan Young Girl aged only 12, Brutaly Throwing down to Rocks from an 8 Meters High another Girl in Greece, (who was Seriously Wounded), before Attacking, Raping and even Murdering Young Student Maria Landenburger at nearby Freiburg, also on 2016 : In Fact, Specialists believe that he's an Adult Man, "at least 22" Years old...


The Biggest Budget for Migrants in Germany is Spend these Years precisely for an Exceptionaly Huge Number of so-called "Non Accompagnied Children", (Never Seen Before so Many), who are a Great Part of those Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants that arrived through Turkey on 2015-2016. Already, the experienced Strasbourg's "Lower Rhine" Department former President, and currently Senator, Guy-Dominique Kennel, had Strongly Denounced the manifold Problems (including of Security) provoked by an UnPrecedented Big Number of such "Non Accompagnied Children" massively arriving through Turkey, almost all ...withOut aby ID Papers, and systematicaly Claiming that they would all be "Children", even if they Look very much as Adults, in order to Claim manifold Social Advantages reserved to Real Children.


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

     But the Most Important is, apparently, that Prevention of Islamist Terrorist Attacks in Europe seems to Face Serious Problems :


    - F.ex., the latest London Subway Bomber was, reportedly, known to have been "Radicalized", from an Islamist point of view, and had been Contacted Recently, by the British Services for that. US President Don Trump even wrote, in a Tweet, that the Perpetrators "Were in the Sights of Scotland Yard".


The Bomber had even Quarelled, some Days earlier, with his Foster Mother, to the point that she had, reportedly, anounced her initial Wish to "Stop taking Care of him", even if she was Famous for having Served more than 250 Kids, already before, including Refugees, "without ever turning anyone out". Neighbours described the Culprit as having an "Awful" Behavior", (Contrary to other, Real Refugee Children, who looked "Quiet and Polite"). Shortly after that Bombing, the Police even Found some more Explosives Hidden behind a sofa inside his Room...


However, the British Police had Not Taken Any Preventive Measure, as far as he was concerned, not even the slightest...

Such Situations Remind, f.ex., even Worse Security Gaps in Europe recently, which Proved to be Fatal :


F.ex., in Germany, Both the Mass Killer with a Heavy Truck at Berlin's "Christmas" Market, on December 2016, who Murdered 12 Civilian People and Wounded 60, and the Recent Knifeman of Hamburg, who, on July 2017, killed one man and wounded another 6, with a 20 cm.-Long Knife, had in common that they should have normaly been Expulsed, since a long time ago !


 But, neverheless, for various Bureaucratic and/or other reasons, Pretexts or Blunders, they were still Staying inside Europe, untouched and free to move around...


Hamburg's Knifeman was even ... "Exemplary" : He reportedly used to come himself regularly at the Police Stations in order to Ask if his papers were, at last, ready in order to be Expulsed Back Home ! He had even done so, Earlier that Same Fatal Day of the Knife-Attack, just a few Hours Before...


As for the Berlin Killer, it seems that the Local Police really didn't want to get him at all : It took More than Three (3) Hours to simply Start Searching for him inside the City, and more than Five (5) Hours in order to Start Searching around Germany ! So that, Finaly, the Killer naturaly Escaped from the German Police, but was Stopped and Shot by ... Italian Police, at Milano,  2 Days Later !

As for a another Deadly Street Car + Knife Attack also in Germany, just a Month Later (February 2017, in Heidelberg), the Local Police didn't even publish his Name, so that practically Nobody learned what really happened to that "Enquiry"....


________________________________________

+ The Most Scandalous such affair is that of a Portorico Man, (reportedly a Muslim convert since long) working in Alaska, who had already Warned himself the FBI, during former US President Barack Hussein Obama, a "Socialist" (Dem. Party), that "some" occulte forces seemed to ....Push him to Kill People for ISIL's aims, with his private Gun, (that he delivered to FBI, at his own initiative, on 2016).


But Obama's FBI did practically Nothing : They just advised him to consult a ...Local Mental Health Doctor, (who also did nothing), and even ...Returned his Gun !


=> Just some Weeks Later, on January 6, 2017 (always Obama's term) he was Shooting at People in Florida's Airport, where he Killed 5 and Wounded anOther 6 innocent Civilians ...


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

At a Top Political level, the most Obvious Blunder was that of the Out-Going then, now Former French President Hollande, who, back on July 14th, 2016, during the Festivities for the National Day, (and just after a Traditional Reception at Elysée Palace in Paris, where he might have, eventually, taken 1 or 2 Glasses of Good Wine), the "Socialist" Leader felt that things were going so well, that he Dared take the Initiative to announce the full End of the Urgency Security Regime which was applied throughout the whole Country, since ISIL's Deadly Attacks of January and November 2015, (at "Charlie Hebdo" and "Bataclan", etc., respectively)...


=> But, just a Few Hours Later, suddenly, 20 tonnes Heavy Lorry, driven by a recently Radicalized Muslim Migrant from Tunisia, cowardly Aggressed the People who were traditionally walking with their Families, including Elders, Women and Children, across a Seaside Walkway, Brutally Killing 87 and Wounding 458 others overnight...


That Horrible Massacre at Nice City (7/2016) was the First Time in History that a "Socialist" President like Hollande, immediately Surprized by spontaneously Starting to use, in his Official Public Declaration, the full Wording of "Islamist Terrorism" !...


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


But, in fact, Already, right from the Start, something looked quite Fishy :

- F.ex., even at the November 2015 ISIL Terrorists' Deadly Attacks in Paris, particularly at "Bataclan", etc., in Addition to a notorious Controversy about the Criticism on the Local Security service, made in Public by the Leader of American Rock Music Group "EODM", who was playing then there, when that Attack took place, there were also certain Victims' Families who were notoriously Angered and Revolted by what, them too, Felt to be a Scandalous Abandon of their Children to such Brutal Invasions by Deadly Islamist Terrorists...

+ Perhaps, even More Important, (even if it Needs and Deserves a Serious and Thorough Investigation, in order to Find the whole Truth), already, Right from the very Start : I.e. Even since the January 7, 2015, ISIS Deadly Terrorists' Attack against Critical Journalists at the "CHARLIE HEBDO" Weekly Satiric Magazine, in Paris, (where 12 People were Killed, and 11 Wounded, followed, later-on, also by another 4 Jewish People killed elsewhere in Paris),


>>> several Witnesses or Survivants, and particularly the Wife of Famous veteran Cartoonist "Wolinski", who was Murdered, strongly Denounced, inter alia, also the Surprizing Fact that the Regular Security Measures which had been Established since Years, because of Threats in the Past, were, Curiously, Downgraded, and some even outrightly Suppressed, just a Few Days Before that Deadly Islamist Terrorism Attack !


It's also a Fact that, this "1st" Big ISIS' Deadly Attack at the Heart of Europe, had Targetted "Charlie Hebdo" the Day that it Published, at its Front-Page, a Vibrant Satiric Warning against rampant Islamization of France and Europe, through the Book of Michel Houellebecq "Submission", (which was Published that Same Day of January 7, 2015, but had been already "Hacked" by Web "Pirates" who had Leaked its main Idea since December 2014, revealed f.ex. by "Guardian" and Other disagreeing Mainstream Medias Worldwide : See, f.ex. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/dec/16/michel-houllebecq-france-submission-soumission-muslim-islam-president etc), in the Wider Context of a Criticism of what the Dissident Journalists who were going to be Murdered had named "La Gauche - Caviar", (i.e. "those Leftists of the Establishment"), targetting former "Socialist" President Hollande's regime.


As for the infamous, alleged "Moameth's cartoons", almost Nothing of this kind wasn't really visible there.

(See the Original "Charlie Hebdo" Front-page, and the relevant Articles, published that Tragic Day of of January 7, 2015).

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".

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.
