It’s amazing that the heart makes no noise when it cracks.
Forgive me if what has seemed little to you, to me is all.
Porque muitos há, dos quais muitas vezes vos disse, e agora também digo, chorando, que são inimigos da cruz de Cristo. Cujo fim é a perdição; cujo Deus é o ventre, e cuja glória é para confusão deles, que só pensam nas coisas terrenas.
The devil is real. And he’s not a little red man with horns and a tail. He can be beautiful. ‘Cause he’s a fallen angel, and he used to be God’s favorite.
Nuestro culto a la muerte es culto a la vida, del mismo modo que el amor que es hambre de vida es anhelo de muerte.
Fragmento de El laberinto de la soledad, Octavio Paz (via poesianoerestu)
Culto ético é aquele que preserva o maior número de vidas possíveis por não desejar a morte do próximo.

According to the Jewish Encyclopedia:
This is perhaps the oldest form of idolatry practiced by the ancients. According to Wisdom xiii. 2, the observation of the stars in the East very early led the people to regard the planets and the fixed stars as gods. The religion of the ancient Egyptians is known to have consisted preeminently of sun-worship. Moses sternly warned the Israelites against worshiping the sun, moon, stars, and all the host of heaven (Deut. iv. 19, xvii. 3); it may be said that the prohibition of making and worshiping any image of that which is in heaven above (Ex. xx. 4; Deut. 5:8) implies also the stars and the other celestial bodies. The Israelites fell into this kind of idolatry, and as early as the time of Amos they had the images of Siccuth and Chiun, “the stars of their god” (Amos v. 26, R. V.); the latter name is generally supposed to denote the planet Saturn. That the kingdom of Israel fell earlier than that of Judah is stated (II Kings xvii. 16) to have been due, among other causes, to its worshiping the host of heaven. But the kingdom of Judah in its later period seems to have out-done the Northern Kingdom in star-worship.“ (The Jewish Encyclopedia, Star-Worship, p., 527)
For those who are still following man-made Jewish traditions in order to please God, you are being deceived (Mark 7:7-9). If you are trying to keep the “Jewish Sabbath” or “Saturday”, you’re following the corrupted calendar of Hillel II. In fact, there is nothing holy about “Saturn-Day”
