Pope includes Hindu verses in prayers on Good Friday
merinews ^ | Apr 14, 2009

Posted on 02/08/2011 7:12:21 AM PST by Gamecock

HINDUS HAVE applauded Pope Benedict for including verse from ancient Hindu scripture Upanishads in the Good Friday Meditations and Prayers led by him at Roman Colosseum.

Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that it was a remarkable gesture from Pope and invited him to study more ancient Hindu scriptures, which were very rich in philosophical thought. He or other Hindu scholars would gladly provide the help and resources in this regard, if asked, Zed added.

Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, also commended His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI for inclusion of a verse from India’s Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore’s Gitanjali and reference to peace icon Mahatma Gandhi in these prayers.

This year’s 'Way of the Cross at the Colesseum' Meditations and Prayers on Good Friday, led by Pope, included well-known verse from Brahadaranyakopanishad (“Lead me from the unreal to the real, from darkness to light, from death to immortality”), line from Tagore’s Gitanjali (“Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service”) and reference to Mahatma Gandhi.

Rajan Zed stressed that all religions should work together for a just and peaceful world. Dialogue would bring us mutual enrichment, he added.

Pope Benedict heads the Roman Catholic Church, which is the largest of the Christian denominations. Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents and moksha (liberation) is its ultimate goal.

PS, can you not handle a polite “good day” or MUST YOU have my attention?

If so, you are bereft. Those who cannot handle the truth deserve no effort from me.

Actually, the Petrine Cross comes from a scrap of Origen’s writings. Didn’t you quote Origen, or was that someone else? If you did, do you only believe PARTS of what you quote, or all?

You mean this one?

“As, then, this act of self-restraint, which in appearance is one and the same, is found in fact to be different in different persons, according to the principles and motives which lead to it; so in the same way with those who cannot allow in the worship of the Divine Being altars, or temples, or images. The Scythians, the Nomadic Libyans, the godless Seres, and the Persians, agree in this with the Christians and Jews, but they are actuated by very different principles. For none of these former abhor altars and images on the ground that they are afraid of degrading the worship of God, and reducing it to the worship of material things wrought by the hands of men. Neither do they object to them from a belief that the demons choose certain forms and places, whether because they are detained there by virtue of certain charms, or because for some other possible reason they have selected these haunts, where they may pursue their criminal pleasures, in partaking of the smoke of sacrificial victims. But Christians and Jews have regard to this command, “Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve Him alone;” and this other, “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me: thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them;” and again, “Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.” It is in consideration of these and many other such commands, that they not only avoid temples, altars, and images, but are ready to suffer death when it is necessary, rather than debase by any such impiety the conception which they have of the Most High God…we may reply that it is easy to know that God and the Only-begotten Son of God, and those whom God has honoured with the title of God, and who partake of His divine nature, are very different from all the gods of the nations which are demons; but it is not possible at the same time to know God and to address prayers to images.” -Origen, Against Celsus 7.64-65

I never said I am an authority or a 'know it all'. YOU said that of me. All I have ever said is Scripture should be the final authority. That's it.

If you can't obey Exodus 20:4 the problem isn't with me. You need to look upward.

I’m curious,

just how many thousands of pages—or even 100’s of pages of credible documents have you read on such topics?

Or, how many house have you spent researching such topics?

I’ve studied globalism et al for 45+ years.

Lots of things are more than plausible that many folks—even conservative, otherwise more or less informed FREEPERS

seem to be shockingly ignorant of.

However, the truth of such facts and associations has been increasingly outted from a wider and wider diversity of sources . . . sources closer and closer to the major power structures, as well.

That it all fits in with Biblical prophecy quite snugly—like a hand in a glove—only reinforces the validity of such findings.

However, who am I to challenge willful glindness in so many proud FREEPERS.

Events in their neighborhoods . . . on their doorsteps will inform them shockingly enough . . . a bit late compared to what they

WOULD HAVE BEEN WISER TO HAVE KNOWN all along . . .

ahhhh well . . . what’s a little genocide here and there amongst friends?

It’s conceivable that some of your cohorts MIGHT learn something from the following links:

FORMER Nam intel agent and private detective JOHN MOORE’S findings . . . confirmed by a wide diversity of well connected recently retired military friends . . .

Thanks for your kind words.

INDEED.

Basic Biblical truths are pretty important, imho.

That such a minority of RC’s believe them is rather shocking, even to me.

That RC’s on FR deny/ignore such facts is also more than a little shocking—in some respects—and more than a little fascinating.

Christ is not on the altar being re-sacrificed over and over again, nor is He continually on the altar being continually sacrificed.

But Catholics apparently think that Scripture is wrong and the Bible teaches lies. Otherwise they wouldn't keep spreading that heresy. Hebrews 10:11-14 And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.

So we would now make a remark about the arts of the theatre, about the things also whose authors in the names we execrate. We know that the names of the dead are nothing, as are their images; but we know well enough, too, who, when images are set up, under these names carry on their wicked work, and exult in the homage rendered to them, and pretend to be divine-none other than spirits accursed, than devils.” -Tertullian, The Shows 10

I gather you’re using words from the

VATICAN DAFFYNITIONARY AGAIN.

To use your words,

“stalking” Proddy posters must be a favorite hobby.

Some of us are masochistic enough to enjoy responding in kind.

Oh, right, “stalking” can only be applied to Proddys,

NEVER to RC’s . . . by DAFFYNITION.

It seems perfectly reasonable to me that absurd RC comments deserve a

FITTING response.

Perhaps those allergic to such responses need to visit their local taxidermist and commission the tailoring of some much thicker skin.

However, I do confess, I am impressed with the skill with which some RC Rabid Clique types seem to be able to get some mods to buy into their construction on reality.

Also their wailing and whining when they are unable to

TOTALLY get FR to conform to the Vatican sensibilities is also Olympic class.

Your joking, right? You do not believe that God is a triune God? Is that what you are telling me?

Okay. Let's start with Genesis 1:26. It says: "Let Us make man in Our likeness.

The Hebrew pronoun used in this verse is the "majestic plural"...the royal "we" if you will...it does not imply there are multiple gods...that's a common Christian misunderstanding of Hebrew...magritte

Sad to say the RCC as it exists today wouldn't be recognized by the church fathers. THEY would be protestant today. Their writing far more frequently lines up with Protestant belief than they will ever line up with the heresies practiced by the RCC which THEY condemned already. Since they have already condemned the RCC I don't have to condemn anyone. You guys are doing a fine job all by yourself!

You would know this if you got away from Catholic agologetics once in a while and actually read them apart from said same apologetics groups TELLING you what THEY said rather than reading it for yourself.

Why is Quix’s abusive behavior tolerated on this forum? Why do the moderators run cover for him and his abusive behavior? He recently posted a thread blatantly stating that Pope John Paul II, a pope beloved by millions of Catholics and most Catholics on this forum, was seen in Hell.

If Catholics posted this kind of abusive thread, or these stalking posts, we would be summarily banned.

Why is his malicious behavior condoned on this forum?!?

Hey Pyro- so whose flesh and blood are catholics gnawing on? Is it Peter's now - a switch in menu?
