LE O le Palemia fou o Italia, Giorgia Meloni, na ia tuuina atu se lauga mamana ma faaperofeta e manatua ai lapataiga a le Katinale Joseph Ratzinger. Muamua, o lena tautalaga (fa'aaliga: adblockers atonu e manaʻomia ona liliu ese pe a le mafai ona e vaʻai i ai):
Given what we know now in 2022… the plan to create a “digital ID” for every human citizen, how governments can restrict our buying and selling in the blink of an eye, and how the entire infrastructure is in place to control humanity… it’s worth revisiting the following writing from February 4th, 2014…
AISEA would the Lord be angry with King David for taking a census? And yet we know that, as soon as he did, David "Faanoanoa ona ua faitaulia tagata":
I have sinned greatly in doing this thing. (2 Samuel 24:10)
The Scriptures don’t tell us exactly why David’s census was wrong. It seems the purpose of it was to determine how many Israelites were eligible for war, such as when God ordered Moses to take a census of all the people of Israel. cf. Num 1:2 But when we read the secondary account of this biblical story, we learn a surprising detail:
Ona tu lea o Satani e tau ma Isaraelu ma faaoso Tavita e faitau Isaraelu. (1 Nofoaiga a Tupu 21: 1)
What gave Satan this foothold upon David? From my previous reflection, A Sau Legion, theologian Cardinal Jean Daniélou noted that ifo i tupua can open the door to Satan:
O lona iʻuga, o le agelu leoleo e toeititi lava a leai sona malosiʻaga ia [Satani], e pei foi o malo.—O Agelu ma a latou Misiona, Jean Daniélou, SJ, i.71
Prior to the census, David won a war against the Ammonites who worshipped the god Milcom.
David took the crown of Milcom from the idol’s head. It was found to weigh a talent of gold, with precious stones on it; this crown David wore on his own head. (1 Chron 20:2)
Milcom was another name for Molech, who was the god of the Canaanites and Phoenicians to whom parents sacrificed their children. It was this idol’s crown that David placed upon his own head, an idol of death. Thus, the census now takes on a different context, that of David and the Israelites taste for war and bloodshed when God was not asking for it. Israel, it seemed, was no longer trusting in God, but in the pelu to control their destiny.
What a warning this is for us today! This generation has bowed down at the feet of Molech and sacrificed their children, most especially in the form of birth control and abortion, in order to control the destinies of nations, peoples and individual lifestyles. Since 1980, 1.3 billion babies have been aborted worldwide. ff. numeraofabortions.com Our politicians and magistrates readily don the crown of Milcom in their efforts to “reduce the population” of the earth.
…they prefer to promote and impose by whatever means a massive programme of birth control. — IOANE PAULO II, Evangelium Vitae, "O Le Talalelei o le Ola", Le. 16
But now that programme extends to the ola. Who is to be “reduced” today? The Gospel is a parody of the census that divides and categorizes people into clans and tribes. For Jesus is rejected based solely on his cultural and familial associations.
“Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James and Joseph and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.
Today, it is the “inconvenient” presence of others that offends our idolatrous sensibilities.
Unfortunately, what is thrown away is not only food and dispensable objects, but often human beings themselves, who are discarded as ‘unnecessary.’ —POPE FRANCIS, “State of the World” address, Chicago Tribune, Ianuari 13th, 2014
It is precisely this disregard for life that John Paul II said is moving us “towards a form of totalitarianism.” Evangelium Vitae, "O Le Talalelei o le Ola", Le. 18, 20 And totalitarian regimes always, always take a precise census of the people, in one form or another, in order to control them. Today, the ones who are behind these programs of control are the powerful banking and financiers of the world’s economies. See, for example, this video: YouTube
Matou te mafaufau i malosiʻaga tetele o aso nei, o le le mailoa o manaʻoga tautupe lea e avea ai aliʻi ma pologa, e le o toe avea ma ni mea totino, ae o se malosiaga le mailoa e tautua ai tagata, e faʻasauāina ai tagata ma fasiotia foi. Latou o se malosiaga faʻatamaʻia, o se malosiaga e faʻamataʻu ai le lalolagi. —BENEDICT XVI, Manatunatuga ina ua maeʻa le faitauga o le ofisa mo le Itula Lona Tolu, Vatican City, Oketopa 11,
Ma o lea, the census is upon us again.
O le Faʻaaliga talanoa e uiga i le Atua tetee, le manu feʻai. E leai se igoa o lenei manu, a e numera. I totonu [o le mataʻutia o nofoaga faʻafefe], latou te faʻaleaogaina foliga ma talafaʻasolopito, liua le tamaloa i se numera, tuʻuina o ia i se toʻa i totonu o se masini tele. O le tagata e le sili atu nai lo o se gaioiga. I o tatou aso, e le tatau ona galo ia i latou na faʻataʻitaʻia le iʻuga o se lalolagi o loʻo i ai le tulaga lamatia o le faʻaaogaina o le tutusa faʻatulagaina o nofoaga faʻapitoa, pe a fai o le lautele tulafono o le masini ua taliaina. O masini na fausia saʻo lava le latou tulafono. E tusa ai ma lenei manatu, e tatau ona faʻamatalaina le tagata e le komepiuta ma e faʻatoa mafai lea pe a faʻaliliuina i numera. O le manu feʻai o se numera ma liua i fuainumera. O le Atua, e ui lava, e iai le igoa ma valaau e ala i le igoa. O ia o se tagata ma saili mo le tagata. —Cardinal Ratzinger, (POPE BENEDICT XVI) Palermo, Mati 15th, 2000 (ua faʻaopopo faʻatusilima)
How odd that, as I was writing this, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice, Antonin Scalia, was reported to say that “internment camps”, such as the ones in WWII, will likely return again, since, “in times of war, the laws fall silent.” washingtononeexaminer.com; Feb. 4, 2014 Indeed, Tradition says it is the “lawless one” who is the beast. cf. 2 Tesa 2: 3
Today, we have opened the door to Legion through our worldliness, and Satan is inciting once again a census, the faanumeraina of people in order to control.
E le o le matagofie o le lalolagi atoa o le lotogatasi o Atunuʻu uma, taʻitasi ma a latou lava aganuu, nai lo o le globalisation o hegemonic laugatasia, o le tasi mafaufauga. Ma o lenei manatu tasi o le fua o le lalolagi. —POPE FRANCIS, Aiga, Novema 18th, 2013; Zenit
Let us pray and ask St. Agatha the martyr to intercede for us that we will remain steadfast in these days of temptation, that we will most especially not be numbered among those in today’s Gospel for whom…
Na maofa o ia i le leai o so latou faatuatua.
For we are called by name, a name carved upon the palm of God’s hand that no stamp or brand can ever wipe out.
For this shall every faithful man pray to you in time of stress. Though deep waters overflow, they shall not reach him. You are my shelter; from distress you will preserve me… (Today’s Psalm, 32)
The United Nations reports that “Fertility has declined worldwide to unprecedented levels since the 1970s.” Read Zenit’s report: “Too Few People”
