New Zealand’s heart

As you probably know, there was 2 terrorist attacks yesterday against 2 mosqs in Christchurch. 😞

49 people died attacked by far right extremists.

I am amazed by the people’s kindness toward the victims. πŸ’•β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™

I don’t know if you’ve seen what they did in Christchurch. People gathered around the mosqs to pay our think or whatever, they brought flowers in the memory of those who died. Plus they brought supplies for the families waiting for some good news from the hospital.

It was really heartbreaking and heartwarming to see such good people out there.

If there are any New Zealander reading this post I’d like to say:

New Zealand has always been my favourite country on this planet, but now I love it even more! Thank you for being so different.

Novus Lectio’s word

Good morning/evening readers,
As you know, my blog is about everything and anything. One day can be poetry, the next one can be a movie review. I’ve noticed that this last month my stats began to drop due to a change of topic. God doesn’t seem to be the favourite topic around here. I wonder why?
Is religion a creepy subject? Or does it feel uncomfortable to talk about the Scriptures?
Hmmmmm whatever the reason may be, I’ll keep on writing what I feel I should. When those ideas are finished, I’ll write about something else, but I’m sure that you’ll see stories found in the Bible these next few days. If you don’t want to read them, it’s ok. Not everyone wants to read long posts, but If you ever change your mind…..
See you soon.

Anniversary!!

Hey guess what?

Yes it has been 3 years already!

I’ve learned so much since my first day here. I remeber that i was so frightened at first, I didn’t even know how to speak to other bloggers.

I’ve made such wonderful friends, thank you so much for sticking with me.

I hope to stay as long as possible, God willing.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy your blogging journey ’cause it is an adventure.

What have we learned from “People of the Book”

Hey guys, you’ve been reading this series of posts for almost a month. That’s a lot!

I’ve noticed that most people aren’t interest in religion or God. Even though it is the most important thing in a human’s life. We prefer to read what is humourous or entertaining rather than something that puts us in an uncomfortable position.

That’s your choice.

Now, for those how have been reading, I’ve got a few questions:

What have you learned?

What is your opinion?

What is your new resolution?

I’m sure that not many of those who have been reading will answer, not because they don’t want to but because they haven’t read it. They just pressed “like” as they did with any other post.

The good thing though, it is that I’ll know who has been cheating! 😜

What about … #27

Isaac Newton was an English scientist of the 17th century, thanks to him we know that the white light is actually a mixture of different colors of light, as well as the general laws he had formulated to describe motion and how it relates to its causative forces, among other theories which made of him a Legend. In his book Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy we find his biography at the beginning, this four pages are extracts of it. Lots of philosophers and scientists at that time (even nowadays) were almost non-believers (called philosophical theism). Such as Descartes, Kant, Huygens, Da Vinci or Spinoza.

Very few were religious, as if philosophy was a religion of its own. The philosophy is a way of seeing things or a way to live. We can be philosophers while being a religious person.
I find quite astonishing that a renowned scientist such as Newton was a religious man fond of the Bible. It is a pity that the western philosophy turned out to be quite an anti-religious system linked to secularism. You may find out more in two previous posts calledΒ faith, religion and secularism I & II.

What about … #26

What intelligent being, what being capable of responding emotionally to a beautiful sight, can look at the jagged, silvery lunar crescent trembling in the azure sky, even through the weakest of telescopes, and not be struck by it in an intensely peasurable way, not feel cut off from everyday life here on Earth and transported toward that first stop on celestial journeys? What thoughtful soul look at brilliant Jupiter with its four attendant satellites, or splendid Saturn encircled by its mysterious ring, or a double star glowing scarlet and sapphire in the infinity of night, and not be filled with a sense of wonder? Yes, indeed, if humankind – from humble farmers in the fields and toilong workers in the cities to teachers, people of independent means, those who have reached th pinnacle of fame or fortune, even the most frivolous of society of women – if they knew what profound inner pleasure awaits those who gaze at the heavens, then France, nay, the whole of europe, would be covered with telescopes instead of bayonets, thereby promoting universal happiness and peace.

Black Panther

Black Panther, who has seen this movie?
If you haven’t, it means you must!πŸ‘Œ
It is an Epic Sci-Fi movie, with an original story not seen before.
It is not the usual science fiction movie where robots rule over the world or aliens with weird weapons attacking people… πŸ™„

Nooooo! this one is much much better and no aliens are involved. Just plain human beings.😊

The story is about T’Challa who is heir to the hidden, but very advanced kingdom of Wakanda (Africa), must step forward to lead his people into a new future and must confront a challenger from his country’s past.
Can you imagine an African country developed with so much Hi-Tech!? Wakanda is!

Who wouldn’t want this story to be true?
What I liked about this movie aside from its originality 😏, it is the actors’ performance, the music and the suspense πŸ˜€.

You’ll find some romance, fights and a lot of adventure.

I’ll vote it as the best movie since the start of 2019.😁
