  God does work in mysterious ways.  He speaks to us even in Tiktok. And this is what my fave friars will be talking about below.  Enjoy.  

change.org is a big disappointment and so is the Nobel Prize awarding body

  There has recently been a petition filed against the receiving of a Nobel prize of one, Maria Ressa of Rappler.  And when the signatories almost reached 200,000, it was taken down by change.org hence change.org is a big fake site.  It was supposed to be a platform of change, but it seems when people start petitioning against their allies, they'll shut us up.  So much for freedom of speech, they've just managed to silence the nearly 200,000 who signed and contributed to this.

Spare a few minutes and you'll be satisfied.
