Skip to comments.Hugo Chavez weeps and calls on God to spare his life
Posted on 04/06/2012 5:40:42 AM PDT by crosshairs
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez wept and asked God to spare his life during a pre-Easter Mass on Thursday after returning from his latest session of cancer treatment in Cuba.
Very little is known about the 57-year-old socialist leader's condition, including even what type of cancer he has. Chavez has undergone three operations in less than a year, and received two sessions of radiation treatment. He says the latest surgery was successful, that he is recovering well and will be fit to win a new six-year term at an election in October. Yet big questions remain about his future, and on Thursday the strain appeared to show. In a televised speech to the Catholic service in his home state of Barinas, Chavez cried and his voice broke as he eulogised Jesus, revolutionary fighter Ernesto "Che" Guevara and South American independence hero Simon Bolivar.
"Never forget that we are the children of giants ... I could not avoid some tears," the former soldier said, his parents and other relatives looking on from the church rows. "Give me your crown, Jesus. Give me your cross, your thorns so that I may bleed. But give me life, because I have more to do for this country and these people. Do not take me yet," Chavez added, standing below an image of Jesus with the Crucifix.

Prayer, the last refuge of a scoundrel. —— Lisa Simpson
You know what they say about prayer, Hugo — sometimes the answer is NO.
There’s a smell of sulfur when Chavez prays.
His first mistake is being a atheist Communist thug dictator (somehow I doubt that God is fooled by his recent “conversion”).His second mistake is going to CUBA for his health care.Hell,even CASTRO went to Spain when *he* got sick.
I wonder Chavez’s reply was when his victims begged his thugs not to kill them?
Wonder if Ocommie will attend the funeral?
Pray for America
Chavez cried and his voice broke as he eulogised Jesus, revolutionary fighter Ernesto "Che" Guevara and South American independence hero Simon Bolivar. "Give me your crown, Jesus. Give me your cross, your thorns so that I may bleed. But give me life, because I have more to do for this country and these people. Do not take me yet," Chavez added, standing below an image of Jesus with the Crucifix.
Hugo just lost 80% of his Hollywood support.
Oh, boo hoo, Chavez.
You turned away from God when you tortured and murdered your fellow citizens in order to install and maintain yourself as a communist dictator. Cry me a river.
And then he praises a fellow communist killer, “Che?”
If I remember correctly, Che wanted Castro to launch nuclear missiles on the U.S. East Coast during the Cuban Missile crisis in 1962. To hell with the both of them.
Your “work” here on earth is done. Time for the next two bit dictator to takeover.
Pssst...Commandante....I think your "prayers" are probably falling on deaf ears given that "Che" is rotting in the darkest part of hell right now.
They love a good act.
Hopefully his message went straight to voice mail with a promise that his call would be returned in the order that it was received. And then erased. Ooops!
You mean sean penn and danny glover are dead?
It would be a wonderful thing if the murderous old fool actually has repented and sincerely turned to the Lord. He will change for the better.
His throwing Che Guevara and Simon Bolivar in almost on a par with Jesus Christ says not, though, to me at least.
I think of the Apostle Paul, and know that equal or worse sinners have repented and gone on to do great things for the glory of God, so there’s always hope.
His behavior will tell the tale for the devout observer.
Not to worry, Hugo! Soon you will be greeted by a fellow with a pointed tail, and holding a pitch fork.
Dictators are pathetic.
They treat people like chattel on Earth, then pray for forgiveness and leniency from Heaven.
I think it is sad to rejoice in a mans pain.
Even if he is your enemy.
There. I said it, and will get ripped to shreds for it...
I pray for the salvation of his soul. Beyond that good riddance.
I will only say, may God have mercy on his soul.
Time for him to go. The interesting thing will be the power struggle between the “Chavezistas” and the dissidents in Venezuela. Guess which ones Obama will side with?
Forgiving one’s enemies is not easy. It’s something with which I struggle, personally. But, we’re commanded to do it.
Unless he immediately steps down, I’m not buying his sob story.
Cartoon characters. The last refuge of a society who can’t think for themselves anymore.
I agree with you.
No bigger disgusting egomaniac than our POSOTUS. However, Soetoro wouldn't do it because he believes he is God.
And I could never fill the Good Lord’s shoes, for I would play “Short People” on Hugo’s death bed:
They got little baby legs
That stand so low
You got to pick em up
Just to say hello
They got little cars
That go beep, beep, beep
They got little voices
Goin’ peep, peep, peep
They got grubby little fingers
And dirty little minds
They’re gonna get you every time
Well, I don’t want no short people
Don’t want no short people
Don’t want no short people
>>>I will PRAY that Obama gets the same disease!>>>
I surely hope that you don’t mean that, broken_arrow1. Please pray for a peaceful end to the Obama regime instead. The Holy Spirit will guide your prayers.
The last thing we need is Obama as a martyr.
An God said...Hugo who?
>>>The last thing we need is Obama as a martyr.>>>
I agree completely.
Agreed. There have been a lot of people through history who should have died. Very often one man is the spark of movements that kill millions. Mao, Lenin, etc. Sure they are movements made of many individuals but it is usually that one figure that is the spark and the glue that hold it together.
Chavez had better be sucking up to satan instead, for that is who his new landlord will be.
No, you are correct. It’s good to see a thug such as Chavez petition God for help. It’s a measure of his fear that drives him.
while theres breath, there is hope of repentance, and that's between him and God, once you pass over your judgment is set. No one goes to hell for sinning, they are condemned for not availing themselves of the recompense that God has provided when he provided himself.
We were directly shown how the thief repented on the cross, and Jesus told him “today you will be with me in paradise’
Only my opinion, but in the very last minutes of his life, the thief probably helped more people than some of the most well known bible teachers in history
having said all of that, i have no illusions about Chavez. What he really needs is a miracle, but not for his body, for his soul. Fortunately God is in the miracle saving business.
Seems that Chavez has found his foxhole.
hmmmm... words fail me.
oh wait, no they don’t - DIE ALREADY you P.O.S!
I’d recommend that Hugo not buy any large jars of mayonnaise or any green bananas.
Yeah, that’s it. Lump in Che with Jesus. You will go far my son...into the depths.
