Believing in God and religions

Saint Peter Square Rome during a religious service

The canonization of Mary MacKillop religious service and other major religious services always bring thousands of people to St Peter Square in Rome. Can anyone of us just imagine what this crowd of religious believers feel and at this services.

Believing in God and religions

Welcome to our hub (54), Believing in God and religions

May God guide and help me to write the right religious things in this article?

Dear readers, we need to believe in God and religions for many reasons, so this is one of the reasons why we are writing this article, but at the same time this article is also going to be a prelude to the theory of Reconciliation of the Universe, in the hope that people could get ready to accept our religious theory, but above all we want to say that religions are important to mankind and they need to continue, even if we might need to modify them somehow, in order to make sense to the future generation.

Dear readers, there are good reasons to believe that we need to believe in God and religions, as our forbear have done for thousands of years; we know that to some of you what we are writing here might seem controversial, just because we are not following strictly religions as they have been taught for centuries, because we are writing about this new way of religious thinking that we believe it is going to come soon, and we are going to call these writings Reconciliation of the Universe; But this does not mean that we don’t believe in God and religions the way they are today, it only means that we see these religious issues in a different way, so let me try to explain the way that I see them:

In our religious writings (or theory) of Reconciliation of the Universe, it is necessary that we believe in God and religions, as close as possible the way they are today, but we have realized that this might not be possible in the future, therefore, we are going to describe God the way we believe God could or would be described in the future, you see, changing God description does not really make much difference, since God is seen in different ways from different people already.

Now let me explain what are the main issues that have made us come to this religious conclusion; what we are trying to say here is that we need to believe in God and religions, because we have always believed in God or something supernatural, it is in our human nature wherever you go in this world. So let us see why and what we do in religious matters, because they seem to affect everyone of us; you see religions are very important because it helps people come together and stay together, there is no need to say and repeat it again and again that every time there are important religious happening people become interested in it and they come together to see the event.

Since today there is one of these events happening in Rome, we would like to report this event here and now, therefore this event is going to be written here-under in a special report, so that we can show you that people are interested in these religious happenings, it is only natural and that is one of the reasons why religions are here to stay, even if one day somebody can prove that God as a person as we assume God is today does not exist, but may exist in a different way; therefore even then people will find another way of believing in something that brings them together.

But now before we go ahead with this article let me assure those religious readers that worry too much with these sort of articles that we are writing, because it aims to change religious things, so, let us write this article called for our reader’s peace of mind.

Reconciliation of the Universe

The angels poem. Angels from the realm of glory, you tell us about the eternal story, you tell us about the creator's glory, you tell us the wonders of God's creation.
The angels poem. Angels from the realm of glory, you tell us about the eternal story, you tell us about the creator's glory, you tell us the wonders of God's creation.

Written for our readers peace of mind

For our reader’s peace of mind

To anyone who is a believer and believes in God and other religious beliefs, please read our Prayers for Reconciliation and Reconciliation of the Universe writings fully before you pass judgment and quit reading; you see Prayers for Reconciliation is only an idealistic theory, which through discussions with other fellow believer (and perhaps non-believers) is trying to find a way on how to link all existing religions together, in the hope that because they have this new found link in common they might find hard to fight each others in the future. Reconciliation of the Universe is a theory that might help to achieve that. We have also reasons to believe that humanity still needs religions, and they need religions mostly as they are today, therefore this is why we are trying to write this theory of Reconciliation of the Universe, which would show the public a new way of seeing God and religions, but at the same times is able to leave religions mostly the way they are today, until the believers themselves start thinking in a different way.

We know that this new religious theory that we are putting forward is going to take a long time to be understood and it is also going to take a long time for me to write and explain it properly, so we hope that we would be able to explain it clear enough for our readers.

-----------------------------------------

Some difference in religions

Now that we have told our religious readers that they don’t need to worry about anything, we can go back to do what we were doing before. We were saying that we have had many discussions with our religious friends, and we have seen in these previous discussions that there are many religions, and there are many different gods and in some religions gods are not even mentioned, so we may assume that for people to believe there is no need to have a real god, as we the Christian have, but the majority of the religious world seem to believe that there is a soul in us, as everywhere in the world people believe that their forbears are somewhere in the world of the dead and when they themself die they are going to meet again over there.

Now that we have assumed that people souls may indeed exist, because the entire world believes in a way or another that something spiritual exists, and therefore a spirit or soul exists, but there are some doubts whether God exist the way that we have been taught; so, let us just assume that there is no God, then the first thing that comes to our mind is; what happens to me when I die, what happens to our souls, would they be flouting around in the universe, and if all the souls of the dead people were to come together would this become a sort of God life force or what? At this point of time we may as well assume that all the dead people souls float about in another dimension so to speak. Now that we have assumed that souls exist in another dimension, souls are not less important whether we have a god like our God Yahweh or not.

But now, let us look at some of the great souls:

There should be no doubts in our minds and there are reasons to believe that the greatest souls that ever was on earth is our Lord Jesus Christ; Now that I have mentioned our Lord Jesus Christ it comes to my mind my dream about Jesus Christ, you see, I was dreaming that I was flouting in the air and this immense life-force-energy that covered half the subcontinent of India, introduced itself to me while I was dreaming and floating in the sky, and he said, do you know who I am? (In a very friendly way) And then in answer to his own question he said, I am the morning star. When I have dreamed this dream I did not know what the morning star meant in a spiritual way, but I have worked it out later that it meant Our Lord Jesus Christ. You can read many of my dreams at this link, Cosmic Spiritual Dreams including this dream.

For all religious people perhaps the second most important soul is Buddha as I understand it, because Buddha was the enlightened one. Of course there are many others souls like the prophets and the saints that one could fill many pages with names, but I will stop here, because I would like to introduce the most recent one, that the Roman Catholic Church has made her a Saint, Saint Mary of the Cross Mackillop. I would like to do this because it shows how and why people are interested in these sorts of religious events.

Therefore when we look at this present religious event, we have to admit that religions are very important to people even today, because people follow religions more than anything else, even the best shows on earth cannot compete with religions, because religions are an inborn need that we have. You see, at this religious event it is very likely that most if not all the Roman Catholic people have witnessed it and lots of them went to Rome just to attend this religious event personally on site.

These sort of things have always happened, and today while I am editing this hub I could not help thinking about the Madonna that we have at the town that I come from; now because I have written a hub about this Madonna story, I am going to paste the link here under, so that you would be able to check it out and see the similarities that drives the people to follow these religious events, even though this is a different Madonna altogether from the Madonna that is being canonized today: The Madonna story

Mary MacKillop
-
A new documentary about the life of Mary MacKillop claims she was excommunicated from the Catholic Church partly as revenge for helping to expose a South Australian pedophile priest.
The documentary for the ABC's Compass program claims sisters in MacKillop's Josephite order of nuns attracted the ire of a South Australian priest for telling authorities that a Father Keating, of Kapunda, was molesting children at the local church school.
The sisters reported the abuse to the vicar-general and disciplinary action was taken against Keating, humiliating him and angering a Father Charles Horan, who was close to the bishop of Adelaide, Bishop Shiel, Fairfax newspapers say.
Horan is believed to have harboured a grudge against MacKillop and the whistleblowers in her order, and used his influence over the bishop to manipulate him into throwing the nun out of the church in 1871. Bishop Shiel reversed the excommunication on his deathbed.
Father Paul Gardiner, a Jesuit priest and the chief postulator for MacKillop's sainthood, told the documentary makers that Bishop Shiel was "gaga" when he excommunicated the woman soon to become Australia's first saint. "She submitted to a farcical ceremony where the bishop was, I'm not sure you should use this word, gaga, but he had lost it and he was being manipulated by malicious priests," he said.
Keating was sent back to Ireland where he continued as a priest, the documentary says.
This is the first time the link between a pedophilia cover-up and MacKillop's excommunication has been exposed, Fairfax says.
The documentary airs on October 10, a week before MacKillop's canonisation in Rome.

One Australian Saint

One Australian Saint that everybody will be talking for a long time is here.

Reported on the news
-
The canonisation of Mary MacKillop has been hailed as a day of rejoicing for all Australians, and a very special day for the Sisters of St Joseph.
In front of a crowd of about 50,000 Catholics from around the world, the Aussie bush girl Mary MacKillop became Saint Mary of the Cross.
Australians were estimated to make up between 6000 and 8000 of the crowd for the ceremony to canonise six saints, and they let out a huge cheer every time Mary's name was spoken.
Australian and Aboriginal flags were dotted throughout the crowd, and the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart - the order St Mary co-founded - stood out in their bright blue scarves, waving yellow Mary MacKillop balloons.
They were all there to see the canonisation of One Australian Saint.
Members of the official Australian delegation - including Cardinal George Pell, Sister Maria Casey, Sister Anne Derwin, Bishop Philip Wilson, Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop and Foreign Affairs Minister Kevin Rudd - addressed the media following the canonisation ceremony in St Peter's Square.
"This is a day of rejoicing and it's a day first of all for the Josephites - we rejoice for them, we rejoice with them," Cardinal Pell said.
"But it's also significant for the rest of us, as Australians and as Catholic Australians."
The Vatican estimated 50,000 people would be present in St Peter's Square for the occasion.
Cardinal Pell had his own way of summing up the impressive crowds.
"I thought the square was probably well and truly three-quarters full," he said.
"I thought it was a very respectable turnout. I was at the grand final of the AFL and it was a much bigger crowd than that."
Postulator Sister Maria Casey, who has worked hard for years to get Mary's sainthood recognised, said it had been a very emotional day for her.
"I felt very moved when the Holy Father actually spoke the words of the canonisation and I was able to look up at Mary looking down on us and out onto the square and I thought, `Mary, we've acknowledged you at last'," Sr Casey said.
"It was a very powerful day and a wonderful culmination for the many people who have worked on this cause since 1926. It's been a long journey.
"People say would I write my book but I say it could not be published yet."
Sr Casey said she had a discussion with the Pope, who remembered his visit to Australia for World Youth Day in 2008 with great fondness.
"He remembered very fondly his visit to Australia and being at Mary MacKillop's tomb," she said.
"He said it was a great day for Australia.
"He sends his greeting to all of Australia on this very happy occasion, and to the sisters also."
Mr Rudd said he felt humbled on hearing about the lives of the saints.
"As we listened to the life of Mary MacKillop and read the lives of those others who were canonised today, it gives you a genuine sense of smallness," he said.
"That is, that these are truly great people. It is a humbling experience."

Saintly name for new school centre
A Hunter Valley Catholic school has become one of the first to honour Saint Mary MacKillop with a trade training centre named in her honour.
Construction of the million dollar facility at St Joseph's High School, Aberdeen commenced this week after a dedication ceremony and blessing of the construction site.
The centre, majority funded by the federal government, will cater for courses in metals and engineering, construction, primary industries and information technology.
St Joseph's principal, John Tobin, says the new facility will become a hub for schools and the community.
"Its certainly going to be a building that will be open for the wider community and other schools," Mr Tobin said.
"We're hoping that with the spirit of MacKillop, rolling up one's sleeves and hard work and dedication, that the facility will enable students of the Upper Hunter and even adults to go through training that otherwise would not have occurred without the trade training centre."
Maitland-Newcastle Diocese director of schools, Ray Collins, believes Saint Mary would approve of the centre because it fits with the philosophy of the Sisters of St Joseph.
"It is to give the students of the Upper Hunter the opportunity to develop their skills, to prepare them for the types of work they might want to undertake in their future," Mr Collins said
----------------------------------------------------------
"So in lots of ways we are continuing the role of Mary MacKillop in ensuring that our young people will make an impact in our society and make our world a better world."
The Saint Mary MacKillop trade training centre is scheduled to be ready for use early next year.
---------------------------------------------------------

The other reasons

There are other reasons why we have written about this new saint religious service, it is because people believe that they need this sort of acknowledgment from the church; so this hub although it might seems that is talking mostly about Saint Mary MacKillop, it also wants to prove that we the people of this world need this sort of religious service that acknowledge the good deeds that someone has done during their lives.

Looking at the religious service and at the amount of people that were attending there and also around the world watching it on TV, one cannot help to wonder how we can continue to keep the religions going on indefinitely serving humanity, since humanity needs religions as we have seen from this religious event. Therefore we believe that we need to try to keep religious things going just the way that they are today, and then plan for the future the best way we can.

We believe that in the future, we need to link everything together, because people have always been interested in these sorts of religious happenings and they always will be, so the best thing for us to do is to try to find out how they can fit together in our new religious theory. You see the religious theory that we are talking about, it is going to be made up with everything that is known or believed to exist today, so every religion and every saint has got a place to fit into including, . Saint Mary MacKillop, as the new Saint that has a place among the other Saints, wherever that place would be according to God’s spiritual setup

Next time we go back to write normal hubs about our religious writings of, Reconciliation of the Universe, in the hub called; Future God of the Universe

May God bless us and help us to understand his will?

See you soon

Dear Williams, I am not here to say which God is better, but I have to point out to you that your God/Allah was once called Yahweh. In a way it is written in the Koran many times, when it says that I am the same God of Abraham, how do you work that out?
