Good lessons from an unexpected source...Tiktok :)

  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.



After years of believing that this site was legit, it is disappointing to know that the petitions you start there are only reserved for people or for events outside its circle of friends.  Maria Ressa has been seen in various forums where she painted exaggerated stories and numbers about the situation in the Philippines.  

More disappointing was the Nobel organization that awarded her.  Freedom of speech was never curtailed in the Philippines during Duterte's regime.  Like how many peaceful protest rallies were held and help with government authorization?  Media outlets and everyone against the government were free to express their opinions, in fact, their cries reached far and wide outside the Philippines with new outlets even in Australia reporting that the president said this and said that.  In fact, the Philippines, for the past 6 years have experienced better and brighter days under the Duterte administration.

Upon Friar Review: Glowing reviews for The Chosen

 I like the Youtube channel Upon Friar Review.  It's about two Franciscan friars reviewing movies and shows in this channel and I love the way how they deepen my understanding of my Christian faith with the movies and shows that they review. And I am very glad that they have reviewed one of my favourite shows today: The Chosen.  I also like the fact that I share most of their point-of-view about the shows and they teach me as well about it.  So below are the Youtube links as they review Seasons 1 and 2 of The Chosen.   Also, I've linked the headings below to related Amazon items that may interest you.

The 12 Apostles

  In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

The Book of Job: Synopsis and Lessons

  The Book of Job is a part of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. It is considered one of the most profound and challenging books in the Bible. The central character is Job, a wealthy and righteous man living in the land of Uz. He is known for his piety and devotion to God. Job's life takes a dramatic and tragic turn when Satan challenges his faithfulness. Satan suggests to God that Job's righteousness is a result of his prosperity and that he would curse God if he were to face suffering. God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but with the condition that he does not harm Job physically. Job's suffering begins with the loss of his wealth, his children, and his health. He is afflicted with painful sores and is left in misery. Throughout his ordeal, Job's friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him and attempt to provide explanations for his suffering. They suggest that Job must have sinned grievously to warrant such punishment, u
