**The eyes of Our Lady of Guadalupe are looking down with humility and compassion. This was a sign to the native people that she was not a god since in their iconography the gods stare straight ahead with their eyes wide open.**
Could you please fix the title line to this. Guess I just missed copying a few letters. LOL!
Thanks in advance for your service.
I know that many will find this shocking (NOT !!), but the San Francisco Chronicle has an exact opposite view of this movie. It says in this 12/11/06 article (via an "expert" they interviewed) that Gibson was 100% wrong in his depiction of the ancient Maya culture (even stating that there is no evidence that the sheer number of human sacrifices portrayed by Gibson ever took place). The author also makes sure he gets in some "subtle" digs against Gibson and Christianity, as well a snide comment about "The Passion of the Christ". Either way, get out your barf bags, and read what "the other side" is saying:
My cup overflows. What a wonderful Mother.
There is so much amazing (and alarming) science on the Shroud and the Oviedo Cloth, I should very much like to be directed to comparable science on the cloak containing the image of Our Lady of Guadelupe. It looks to be impressive and persuasive. Anyone know of a link to the good science on it?
"It is my hope and prayer that Gibson's film will serve as a catalyst to reveal why Cortez needed to stop the practice of human sacrifice and bring knowledge of the True God to the indigenous people of Mexico. It may also serve as a wake-up call to our culture in which Satan has convinced many of our people that slaughtering their most innocent citizens in their mother's wombs is a basic human right."
I find it surprising that anyone who realizes the U.S. has been attacked, and is also under invasion by a Pro-life people, do not see the correlation. I call it the Manasseh Judgment. God told the Israelites they were being given the promised land because the people who originally lived there sacrificed their children, and if they did the same thing, they, too, would lose their land. Which of course, they did, and were dispersed by the people from Babylon, Iraq. God blesses pro-lifers, not nations that practice child sacrifice.
Great read in addition to daily readings. Thanks for posting.
