Valuable Information for people interested in joining Christianity/Catholicism
Current mood:  enlightened

Interested In Becoming a Christian Catholic? Here Is Some Useful Information For YouBy:Constantine Adams6/12/2019The hierarchy of the Catholic Church consists of four main players. (1) The Pope, (2) the Bishops, (3) the Priests, and (4) the Catholic believers or congregation according to http://www.bible.ca/catholic-church-hierarchy-organization.htm                 The Pope is officially the main head of the Catholic denomination after Jesus Christ.  The Bishops run 2,946 diocese districts and cathedrals, the Priests run 219, 583 parishes, and overall; the Catholic believers consist of 1 billion members worldwide. There are also a total of at least 30 branches of Roman Catholic denominations in the world today.                 The Pope is also known as “The Patriarch” amongst many other names. Patriarch translates to “the title of a most senior Orthodox or Catholic bishop.” The Pope is responsible of the upholding of 3 positions. The first, is to be the priest who preaches at the pulpit of St. John Lateran Basilica on a day to day basis just like any other parish priest. His second duty is to display his leadership as the Bishop of the Diocese of the city of Rome. And thirdly, to uphold his post as Pope, by being head of the Universal Church. St. John Lateran Basilica, “where the Pope serves as a parish priest, “ is a basic local Church where every day Catholic believers come to pray, worship, and hear the Gospel.(www.bible.ca)                 St. John Lateran Basilica serves as a mother Church that monitors the diocese factions. In simpler terms, the local parish of St, John Lateran is the main overseer of other local Catholic Churches that fall under the umbrella of it’s local geographical location. This is what a “diocese” is.  The Pope who leads that particular parish is also coined with the title of “Ruler of the Bishops.”                 Now, the Cardinals on the other hand, possess no particular power in the Catholic Church. They can claim no authority over their fellow Bishops or Priests. The Pope chooses the Cardinals out of the 2,946 Bishops and officially appoints them to that post. The title of a Cardinal member can be described as a cabinet member in the Canadian or British Government. If the Pope serves as a “Prime Minister” of sorts, and withholds full authority, then the Cardinals serve as the hundreds of “Members of his Holy Parliament.” These “Members of Parliament,” deal with a Bishop and then control over a specified territory. From these Cardinals, the Pope then chooses about 15 out of the larger group to fill other personalized posts like “Defense Minister,” “Trade Minister,” and “Environment Minister.”(www.bible.ca) Just like in the British government, when the cabinet members have no power over the “back benchers” or non-cabinet members, the Cardinals hold no power over the Bishops. Therefore, Cardinals are just Bishops with additional specified powers to wield, but don’t rank over anyone outside their own diocese’s jurisdiction. Cardinals also serve as the Pope’s official advisory panel, and are given the responsibilities of electing new Pope when the old one passes away.   Prayer To Our Lady Of Perpetual Help                 Behold O Mother of Perpetual Help, at thy feet a wretched sinner, who has recourse to thee and trusts in thee. O Mother of mercy, have pity on me; I hear all men call thee the refuge and my hope. Help me for the love of Jesus Christ: hold out thy hand to a fallen wretch, who commends himself to thee and dedicates himself to be thy servant forever. I praise and thank God, who of His great mercy hath given me this confidence in thee, a sure pledge of my eternal salvation. Alas, it is only too true that in the past I have fallen miserably, because I did not come to thee. I know that with thy help I shall conquer; I know that thou wilt help me, if I commend myself to thee; but I am fearful lest in the occasions of sin I shall forget to call upon thee and so I shall be lost. This grace, then, do I ask of thee; for this I implore thee, as much as I can and know to do; namely, that in the assaults of hell I may ever run to thy protection and may say to thee: Mary, help me; Mother of Perpetual Help, permit me not to lose my God. (Hail Mary) O Mother of Perpetual Help, grant me ever to be able to call upon thy powerful name, since thy name is the help of the living and the salvation of the dying. Ah, Mary most pure , Mary most sweet, grant that thy name from this day forth may be to me the very breath of life. Dear Lady, delay not to come to my assistance whenever I call upon thee; for in all the temptations that assail me, in all the necessities that befall me, I will never leave off calling upon thee, ever repeating; Mary, Mary, what comfort, what sweetness, what confidence, what tenderness fills my soul at the sound of thy name, at the very thought of thee! I give thanks to our Lord, who for my sake hath given thee a name so sweet, so lovable, so mighty. But I am not content merely to speak thy name; I would utter it for very love of thee; it is my desire that love should ever remind me to name thee, Mother of Perpetual Help. (Hail Mary) Oh Mother of Perpetual Help, thou art the dispenser of every grace that God grants us in our misery; it is for this cause that He hath made thee so powerful, so rich, so kind, that thou mightiest assist us in our miseries, Thou art the advocate of the most wretched and abandoned sinners, if they but come unto thee; come once more to my assistance, for I comment myself to thee. In thy hands I place my eternal salvation; to thee I entrust my soul. Enroll me among thy most faithful servants; take me under thy protection and it is enough for me: yes, for it thou protect me, I shall fear nothing; not my sins, for thou wilt obtain for their pardon and remission; not the evil spirits, for thou are mightier than all the powers of hell; not even Jesus, my Judge, for he is appeased by a single prayer form thee. I fear only that through my own negligence I may forget to recommend myself to thee and so I shall be lost. My dear Lady, obtain for me the forgiveness of m sins, love for Jesus, final perseverance and the grace to have recourse to thee at all times, O Mother of Perpetual Help. (Hail Mary) The prayer is important to Catholics because it is used to encourage the strengthening of marriages, to combat sickness, and to help the poverty stricken gain better employment. (http://www.god-answers-prayers.com)                 Saint Anthony Claret Catholic Church is located on 1450 East La Palma, in Anaheim, California 92805-1551. It is lead by Pastor Rudolph J. Preciado. It’s Parochial Vicars are Reverent Hieu T. Nguyen and Reverent Benjamin D. Hoang. It’s Deacons are Mr. August Mones, Jose Luis Reynoso, and Salvador Sanchez.                 Saint Anthony Claret Catholic Church is a very small, but elaborate Church. It possesses a particular artistic sort of architecture and is very detailed. The doors at the entrance of the Church have big Jesus Crosses cut into them. The floor plan of the Church is also shaped like a gigantic Crucifix. It has beautiful wooden pews, and has a Crucifix engraved at the ends of each one. On each of the side walls of the Church, there are what are called “The Stations of the Cross Statues” each depicting the different moments of Christ’s crucifixion. Right above these pieces of art work are beautifully crafted stain glass windows with pictures of Saints lining the walls of the Church all the way down the alter on each side. At the head of the alter, right over the Pastor’s pulpit, is a huge statue of a Crucifix. In my first visit, Jesus Christ was on the Cross; but after I went back the day before Easter,  Jesus Christ was covered with a red veil. This is very important, because it symbolizes that Christ is within His tomb for the moment and is hidden from the world, until he rises again on Easter Sunday. To the left of this display, is another statue of The Virgin Mary and Joseph looking over a baby Jesus. Baby Jesus is depicted as a little boy, no older than the age of 3, and is clinging to His earthly father’s feet. To the far right of the Pastor’s pulpit, there is another piece of artwork. This time it is a mural of fire swirling with the Holy Spirit. At the very back of the Church, behind all of the parishioners and the pews, is a balcony overseeing them. Here is where there music equipment is displayed, apart from the two guitar players and the other organ player on the stage behind the Pastor. In the left-center of the Church there is what they call a quite area where believers can go inside and pray in peace, or where parents can take their small children to calm them down. The rooms are laced with sound proof glass. Another interesting fact was that the Pastor would let people from the congregation go up and read scriptures from the Holy Bible.                 In a sit down interview with Reverent Benjamin D. Hoang, he explained to me the various occupations, programs, and duties of the people within Saint Anthony Claret Church. He told me that every Church is different, and each one has it’s own customs. Their Church in particular possesses a Parish Manager, Official Church Secretary, Financial Council, Pastoral Council, Catechists{or those of which who teach Catechism}, an RCIA Program that is geared to teach classes to new comers of the Faith, and to teach them what it really means to be Catholic, a house keeper, security, maintenance crew, youth ministry, Religious Education Program, which is also geared towards children, marriage preparation, and confirmation.       4/19/14 Mass Service Titled; “A Holy Saturday-The Morning Prayer Anointing”                 The day’s Mass was primarily emphasizing Jesus Christ’s Divine Death and Resurrection. It was an English and Spanish speaking service, but the main point was the same. “Be intent on God, through whom we have redemption and the forgiveness of our sins.”                 Pastor Rudolph J. Preciado was wearing a pure white gown with a purple prayer shawl draped over his shoulders. He opened up that Saturday Mass with a “Greeting” then he had the congregation break out in the singing of “Celebrant Lord, Open My Eyes.” All of the congregation then commenced with the prayer “And my mouth will proclaim your praise …response.” Then Pastor Preciado led the congregation in the hymn “Celebrate: Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”                 Soon after, Pastor Preciado exclaimed that “As it was in the beginning, it is now, and will be forever.” He explained Jesus Christ’s place on the thrown in Heaven. The Pastor then delved into Psalm 64 for the morning’s first reading. The morning’s second reading consisted of Psalm 150, “The Canticle of Isaiah.” He derived his third reading from the “Canticle of Zechariah.” The readings were quickly followed up by an intercession of music and hymns. The songs and prayers of this Mass were much different than the one’s that were used during the Wednesday Mass that I had attended a few weeks ago. At the first Mass I attended, the congregation preformed the “Act of Consecration,” “Prayer In Temperal Wants,” “Mother Dear, O’Pray For Me,” “The Thanksgiving Prayer,” and “Our Mother of Perpetual Help”(prayer). As the Saturday Mass commenced, all of the congregation would reply “Lord have mercy on us,” several times as the Pastor prayed. Pastor Preciado then went into a lecture: “Christ our Savior, your sorrowing Mother stood by you at your death and burial. Christ the Good Shepherd in death you lay hidden from the world.” He then led the congregation in the “Our Father Prayer,” to which the congregation replied loudly “Amen!” Pastor Preciado then dismissed his congregation by exclaiming “Thanks be to God!”

Catholic Church Holy Rituals
Current mood:  cheerful

Rituals of The Catholic ChurchBy:Constantine Adams6/12/2019                 Overall, the Catholic believers consist of 1 billion members worldwide. There are also a total of at least 30 branches of Roman Catholic denominations in the world today.(www.bible.ca) All have their own individual way of conducting certain rituals, but ultimately; they all keep within the same original traditions of the Faith and Church. Now, with each ritual comes the blessings and responsibilities that come along with it. Each ritual has its own significance and specific importance to the individuals who are receiving the blessing, and the congregation as a whole. (http://www.bible.ca/catholic-church-hierarchy-organization.htm)                 The spiritual journey of a Catholic believer starts out with what the Church calls “The Sacraments of Initiation.”  The first step in the process is called the “Rite of Initiation.” Usually believers are immediately baptized right after their very own birth, and the Confirmation and Eucharist are preformed much later. It is explained that through the sacraments, a believer is then freed from the power of darkness. Along with The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they too die, are buried, and through Him; triumph and rise again. (McBrien pg.805-806) Through this initiation method, the believer then receives the Spirit of Adoption. This then transforms them into God’s Children, and as God’s people; they together celebrate the memorial of the Lord’s death and resurrection. Another important point to note, is that through the motions of baptism, believers are then officially incorporated into Christ. (McBrien pg.806) By then being thoroughly transformed into God’s people, they then receive full forgiveness of all of their faults and sins. This realization signifies the believers being thus; further raised from their old natural human condition and being molded into the new dignity of Christ’s adopted children. The result is the transformation into a new creation brought about by the Holy Water and the Holy Spirit. After all of this is completed, they take upon the title and honor of being able to be called Christ’s Children!(McBrien pg.806)                 The Holy Rite of Baptism goes as follows. First, it is usually celebrated during the Easter Vigil, but if that is not possible during that certain time; then the whole Ceremony would then have to be done in a rather celebratory way as if the parties involved were in fact celebrating with the Spirit of Easter. The process then commences with instruction from the celebrant, then it is followed with a litany. (McBrien pg.815) The Holy Baptizing Water is then thoroughly prayed over and lucifer is then renunciated in the Mighty Name Of Jesus Christ! Next, the anointing with the oil of catechumens, and the profession of Faith. The pouring of the Holy Water is then preformed followed closely by the invocation of the Holy Trinity regarding the name of the person who is officially being Baptized. The individual is then called out by name and is Baptized by The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost. This is also known as the Trinitarian Formula. Anointing, the clothing with the white garment, and the presentation of the lighted candle then come next to conclude the Divine process.(McBrien pg.815)                 The next step that a Catholic believer must follow through with, is the ritual of the Eucharist. The Eucharist is very important because it deals with one of the three situations concerning Christ’s Holy Body and Blood. It symbolizes Christ’s sacrifice using the Consecration of the Mass, Holy Communion, and the Blessed Sacrament. The Eucharist is also considered the most important of all seven Sacraments to the Catholic people.(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.105) Catholics firmly believe that during the ritual, the bread and wine are not only the body and blood of Jesus Christ; but are actually the soul and divinity of the Messiah. “Real Presence” is the term used during this very sacred time, because it symbolizes the Catholic believers as being able to really sense Christ’s presence in the room with them.(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.105) M. Basil Pennington’s book “The Eucharist: Wine of Faith, Bread of Wine,” states that “The creed makes us aware of our dependence: God is the Maker, we are the made; God is the Savior, we are the saved. It makes us aware, too, of how much we are loved: “for us and our salvation.” It makes us aware of what has been promised to us, and so we can confidently pray.”(Pennington pg.35)                 The term “Eucharist” is a derivative from the Greek pronunciation “Eucharistein,” which translates in modern day English as “Thanks Giving.” In this particular instance, the Catholic folks are taking this specific time to give thanks to Jesus for providing them with the bread from Heaven. This bread from Heaven is the Holy Eucharist, and is necessary to feed, uplift, and nourish their souls!(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.105) Jesus Christ also gave thanks at The Last Supper as stated in (Luke 22:19; 1 Corinthians 11:24; Mark 14:23; Matthew 26:27). In the time of Christ, meals shared with people symbolized concepts like peace, trust, and communality.(McBrien pg.820) This next quotation straight out of Richard P. McBrien’s book “Catholicism,” further sums up the true ancient essence of preforming the Eucharist. “But Jesus identified the bread and wine with his own body and blood. And sensing his own impending death, he speaks of himself as a sacrifice. Just as the unleavened bread is broken, so will his body be broken. And just as the wine is poured out, so will his blood. All four texts agree that Jesus’ death is an atonement and establishes a new Covenant. The Jews, in fact, regarded every death of an innocent person as an atoning death, and Jesus saw his own death in this light.” (McBrien pg.821)                 The concept of Conformation is another big step that a Catholic believer must take in according to the fulfillment of the overall rite of passage . This serves as a sort of “coming of age” moment for a Catholic believer as they become more fully and thoroughly molded into the Body of Jesus Christ. The whole and primary objective of the art of Conformation, is to further strengthen, grow, and mature the soul of the believer. It is rather properly explained in Brighenti and Trigilio’s book “Catholicism for Dummies,” where it states “It builds on what was begun in Baptism and what was nourished in Holy Eucharist. It completes the process of initiation into the Christian community, and it matures the soul for the work ahead.”(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.109)                 Brighenti and Trigilio also state that “The Byzantine Church confirms (chrismates) at Baptism and gives Holy Eucharist as well, thus initiating the new Christian all at the same time.”(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.109) When a Catholic believer is just a baby, the Church holds a great ceremony where the child’s parents and new God Parents all unite before a Bishop to dedicate the young one to the safety and glory of Jesus Christ. The soul of the child is then dedicated to the fellowship of God. Yet, at Confirmation, the same vow to The Savior is then being renewed by the child at an older age. This way, it shows the child as taking the responsibility, honor, and initiative in means of upholding this Holy creed and vow for themselves; without the influence or meddling of their parents or God Parents.(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.109) Still, it is required that a new Catholic believer must commence in the completion of CCD or (Confraternity of Christian Doctrine) before this whole process can be followed through with. “Confraternity of Christian Doctrine” are just a set of prerequisite religious educational classes that are used to prepare the new believer for their spiritual journey that is at hand.                 It is known in the Catholic community that the Holy Spirit is first bestowed upon a new believer the very first moment that they are baptized in the Holy Water. In the midst of the ceremony, the Holy Trinity is set upon them, thus symbolizing The Father, Son, and The Holy Ghost. Now, at Confirmation, all three entities once again are set on the new believer at the same time as a reflection of Pentecost.(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.109)                 (Acts 2:1-4) thus, references “The Feast of Pentecost” where the Holy Spirit descended out of Heaven to earth where it’s power was bestowed upon the 12 apostles and Jesus Christ’s mother, the Virgin Mary. The occasion took place for 50 days after Easter and exactly 10 days after Jesus Christ commenced in His Ascension.(Brighenti and Trigilio pg.109) The 12 apostles were then given certain special gifts from Christ and the Holy Spirit at this time. These gifts or “fruits of the Spirit,” were charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity, goodness, long-suffering, mildness, faith, modesty, continency, and chastity. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.110) These gifts are then further strengthened by the Holy Ghost. The Holy Spirit also granted the apostles the gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and the fear of the Lord. These final seven gifts are known as supernatural graces that are bestowed generously upon the soul of the believer. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.110)                 There are a total of four major steps when completing the Sacrament of Conformation. First off, the Confirmation ceremony takes place within the Mass itself, or can take place outside of it. In either instance, the Bishop will traditionally come dressed in his red vestments to symbolize the red tongues of fire that were seen hovering over the heads of the apostles at Pentecost. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.110) Next, the believer that is going to be Confirmed steps forth accompanied by their sponsor. Canonical requirements concerning God Parents in the Baptism Ceremony also apply to the concept concerning the ceremony for Conformation. When looking at Baptism, the child’s parents pick out their God Parents, but for Confirmation; the child picks out their own sponsor for the ceremony. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111) The child can choose their original God Parents again, or they can select someone new that they would like to also include in their rite of passage.  The only requirement is that the sponsor has to be a believer themselves, and they have to be older than the age of 16. One sponsor is chosen for Confirmation, while usually two are chosen at Baptism. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111) Thirdly, the new Catholic believer is then presented with the option of whether or not they want to choose a new extra name to add on to their original official name. When a child is Baptized, the parents named them. The child at that point had no say so in the ordeal, but at Confirmation; an additional name can be chosen by the individual believer for themselves! (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111)  This can be exciting for the believer if they choose to add this new name in between their original first and middle name, or they can just bypass this whole scenario and keep their original name the way it was. The only stipulation is that if the new believer were to choose a new name, they would have to only choose a Christian name from the Bible. It could be a Saint or a hero in the Holy Bible. Yet, one cannot choose a villain from the Bible as their name, like Goliath or Pharaoh for example. Also secular names are not proper to choose from for such an occasion. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111)                 Lastly, the new believer that is now being Confirmed either kneels or stands in front of the Bishop who is overseeing them. The believer’s sponsor then places a hand on their shoulder. The new believers Confirmation name is then spoken by the Bishop who then places Chrism Oil onto the new believer’s forehead. (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111)  The Bishop then addresses the new believer by their new name and says to them “Be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit.” After the new believer will then respond with “Amen.” The Bishop will then answer them with “peace be with you.” The new believer would then respond with “And with your spirit.” (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111)                 Usually, the process of Conforming new Catholics is the Bishop’s responsibility amongst his own specific diocese. Although, just normal priests can be given the right to Confirm grown-ups who are converting to Catholicism from another religion. This happens when the people involved are brought into the full Communion with the Roman Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil and they’ve attended the “Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults” or (RCIA) program at the Church. Non-believers who are trying to convert to the Faith are obligated to take these classes.” (Brighenti and Trigilio pg.111)                 In a sit down interview with Reverent Benjamin D. Hoang, he explained to me the various occupations, programs, and duties of the people within Saint Anthony Claret Church. He told me that every Church is different, and each one has it’s own customs. Their Church in particular possesses a Parish Manager, Official Church Secretary, Financial Council, Pastoral Council, Catechists{or those of which who teach Catechism}, an RCIA Program that is geared to teach classes to new comers of the Faith, and to teach them what it really means to be Catholic, a house keeper, security, maintenance crew, youth ministry, Religious Education Program, which is also geared towards children, marriage preparation, and Confirmation. “The RCIA Programs are very important,” says Reverent Hoang. “We emphasize these, because it is essential to the new comers of the Faith to properly learn about what it is to uphold the title if being a Catholic, and how to properly conduct themselves in society after they have walked that route and transformed their lives.”                 Ultimately, people are all looking for something more in life, they are reaching out for something from deeper within their hearts, souls, and spirits. People want to get closer to God, to get closer to the Messiah…Jesus Christ. Catholicism provides people with a clear route, and a rite of passage to achieve this. The Holy Sacraments of Catholicism are beautiful it the way that it provides people with a sort of Divine blue print that follows them from birth, to adolescence, to adulthood, to marriage, and then to their very last breathe. Catholicism’s Sacraments are truly a celebration of Christ’s gift of life. It is an enduring and heartfelt process that pushes believers physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It’s a growth process that is well worth it, for it teaches Catholics that one can triumph over the hard times in life, and that with a focused sense of determination and discipline; one can resist the temptations of satan to become a better person. Yet, I think that the main point and purpose of the Catholic rite of passage is to show that every moment of life can be celebrated as a miracle; and all things are possible through Jesus Christ!                                                                                    Work Cited Page Brighenti, Kenneth and Trigilio, John. “Catholicism For Dummies.” Indiana: Wiley Publishing, 2003.

The Walter Dominguez Story: Fighting Communism/NWO In Mexico
Current mood:  adventurous

Journey To RevelationBy: Constantine Adams6/12/2019                 A man stands gazing before a vast ocean as it crashes along a rocky beach. The sun is now setting in the West as it is now casting its last rays of light over Southern California. The man stays staring at the roaring blue Pacific. Its might and influence is far reaching, a lot like life. Yet, it is deep and in many cases, it is everlasting. The sea’s depths hold many epic tales, many adventures, and many secrets. This is where the calamity lies. It is the secrets, the fear of the unknown, that is the most intimidating. To unlock these secrets, it often takes a hero that is willing to step up and go against the grain in order to uncover the truth, no matter how treacherous or self-destructive the path may be. In this particular storyline, our hero is that of a man by the name of Walter Dominguez. His quest that he has willingly chosen, is to track down the crossroads of his grandfather Emilio N. Hernandez, and to possibly unlock the legacy of his entire family’s history.                 Walter Dominguez was very close to his grandfather Emilio Hernandez, who he warmly called “Tata.” In many cases, Tata taught Walter a lot about Jesus Christ, Faith, love, life, and how to be a man. Walter grew up and was widely raised by Tata in the rural region of Santa Paula, California. Grandpa Tata was a very important and influential person in not only Walter’s life, but in the lives of many across Mexico, as well as in the United States. Still, just how influential and important was Tata to all of these people across these two neighboring counties? Walter was about to find out.                 Walter decided to capture his journey of truth and revelation on film, and documented everything live as it happened. Each and every new and fascinating discovery was then implemented into his documentary film titled “Weaving The Past: Journey of Discovery.”                 “We initially started production in 2001, but we didn’t finish editing until 2013,”says Dominguez. “We were still making adjustments all the way through 2014. We had to further sift through archival photos, music, and film clippings. Then we had to get the legal rights to use all of the information. This process took a year in itself.” Overall the film “Weaving The Past,” took 13 years  to complete. Another hardship that Walter and his crew had to overcome was the change in technology as the decade pressed onward.                 “Everything had to be converted from the old style of video tape to hi-definition and digital formats. Plus, real life issues got in the way. My father, who was helping me track down people for the film, was already ill. He would later pass away halfway through the production. I broke down whenever I had to view and edit the old footage of him. Still, I knew I had to do this, and I thought about all of the people who would be inspired by my film. I couldn’t just stop and quit.”  Walter felt compelled to complete this mission after he lost his Grandpa Tata in the year of 1973 on Memorial Day weekend. At the young and tender age of 25, Walter could not bear to view his beloved grandfather in such a frail condition and could not bring himself to visit Tata in his last days. Walter also could not muster up the strength to comfort his own father during such a trying time. Now empowered by a seething need to redeem himself and to find closure, Walter promises his parents Maria and Roberto Dominguez, that he would uncover all of the facts about his grandfather’s life, and will track down all of Tata’s long lost relatives in the streets of Mexico. “I wasn’t there for Tata when he passed. It hurts me that he was calling and calling for my name, and I was not there to answer. I was also not there for my mother and father when they were going through this. Tata was the one who saved me. My parents were going through some really stressful marital problems, and Tata was the one who took me in. He was the one who raised me. This film really helped me to redeem myself. I had to make an effort for not being there for him. Overall, this film gave my soul a sense of completion,” explains Dominguez.                 Emilio N. Hernandez was born on August 5, in the year of 1888 in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico. It was a mountain range type of region, and was very rural. Hernandez would grow up to be a very inspirational Christian Methodist Pastor that would lead many to the Holy Word of Jesus Christ. Still, what Walter did not know was that his Grandpa Tata was not only a man of strong Faith, but was also a valiant and resourceful political revolutionary during the Mexican Revolution that lasted from 1910 to the year of 1920. Tata himself was on an epic quest of his own just like Walter was so many generations later. The only difference was that where Walter was trying to further liberate himself in a way, Tata was trying to liberate a whole nation and all of its indigenous people. Tata was a strong believer in both social and economic justice, and was willing to sacrifice his own life and limb to uphold these liberties for all humanity.                 The origins of Tata’s legacy would begin to transpire the age of five when he would be forced to run away from his mountain home in Mexico do to a grotesquely abusive and alcoholic step-father.  Tata unfortunately never got to ever meet his true biological father, and only knew of him to be of Aztec Indian dissent. With all of the chaos that his step-father was causing, Tata now had to leave his fair skinned Hispanic and European mother, and his sister.“I always knew that my Grandfather Tata had a very dark and gloomy past. He would always try to avoid any questions about it. Tata would give the family bits and glimpses of his childhood and life, but would not want to elaborate,” says Dominguez.                 One night, Tata would flee from the only home that he knew, and would wonder through over 30 kilometers of the rugged mountain terrain of Leon Guanajuato, Mexico. He would eventually stumble upon the property prestigiously known in that era as “Los Altos de Ibarra,” where a family named the Guerrero’s would sympathize with the small boy, and would take him in as their own. Tata would eventually work there as a shepherd, and would later be taken under the wing of both Praxedis “Prax”  G. Guerrero, and his sister Clotilde.                 Yet, it would be Praxedis who would have more of a huge influence on the young and vibrant Tata. Praxediswould grow to be tired of the cruel and vicious tyrannical dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz. At the time of Diaz’ reign of terror over all of Mexico, the wealthy elite were exploiting the Native poor in the country. The Haciendas worked as a form of a modern day“Encomienda System,” and  were used to turn the Indio-Mexicans into slaves in their own nation, thus, resulting in the 900 slave owners to rule over the 9 million poor. He and Tata would unite to help lead the Mexican Revolution with the creation of their political newspaper titled “Regeneration.”Praxedis and Tata would inspire many Mexican Natives to take up arms, join the revolution, and utilize both urban and guerilla warfare to try to overthrow Diaz and his authoritarian regime.Soon though, Diaz would get word of this. Diaz would then target all of his political enemies, and would then put both Tata and Praxedis on his personal hit list. He sent troops after the two anarchists and forced Tata and Praxedis to flee to the United States of America to seek refuge and possible political asylum.                 This experience of fleeing their home country of Mexico, and coming to America would then lead to Tata Hernandez and Praxedis Guerrero to start fighting for the plight of the Mexican laborers here in the United States who were being mistreated. Tata would then later come into contact with Wilfred Wallenius and Reverend Vernon McCombs, and the rest is history in means of his spiritual path to finding Jesus Christ.                 Interestingly enough, Walter was able to draw some parallels of the social issues of Tata’s generation in Mexico to his own environment as far as America’s current state is concerned. “We are seeing the exact same kind of oppression here in the United States,” explains Dominguez. “America’s middle class is dying and extreme poverty is on the rise. It is now very hard for our youth to even survive. When we look at Wall Street and how our government has poured billions of dollars into these private corporations it raises concern.”                 Walter is a strong believer in American’s right to vote, and feels that it is only right that fellow citizens do so in order to have a proper stake in the future outcome of our nation’s leadership.  “As frustrating and discouraging as the whole process may be, it is essential to keep power out of the hands of money hungry tyrants who wish to exploit the public and generate revenue only for themselves,” says Dominguez. “We as Americans should never underestimate the power of an individual. Look at what Tata was able to accomplish with his life. The people have the power and right to fight back.”                 It was the accumulation of the United States’ various social, environmental, and economic problems that inspired and further compelled Dominguez to create such a film. Still, the one issue that really “broke the camel’s back,” as it were was the horrific tragedies of September 11, 2001. After watching the World Trade Center Towers burn to the ground and the thousands of people die, Dominguez felt the need to find clarity in a world that seemed to be collapsing around him. Disgusted with the path that humanity was taking he wished to combat it all in a constructive way. This would then lead to the inception of his film “Weaving The Past: Journey of Discovery.”                 “With the events of 9/11, and all of the wars that were to follow, some needed and many not needed, the Iraq War in particular, the suffering of the families of the soldiers that we have lost, the women and men who gave their lives for this country, nothing was making any sense. There was just so much pain,” explains Dominguez. “All I saw was a lot of waste and misuse of valuable resources by our state and country’s officials. The homeless rate has been really rising in the last 20 years or so, there are just so many encampments everywhere. Then you have the government making all of the cuts to our children’s education. It started with music, and now it is seeping into other forms of the arts. There has also been a drifting away from Faith in our society unfortunately. Faith and education are both very important, but schools can’t teach faith.Plus, all of the animal species that are going extinct do to global warming, it was all just depressing me.”                 After Walter turned 50 years old, he began to realize that life wasn’t forever. He also started noticing all of his fellow friends and family members rising in age and they too were becoming ill and were passing away. This startled Walter and made him do some real soul searching. He started thinking about his own life and legacy. He needed to take a stand and do something. Walter needed to make a positive impact on the world while he still had time, and before it was too late.                 “I wanted to prove to myself that in the midst of all of the chaos, that there were still good people out there in the rest of the world. I needed to see if there were people who were still willing to love, help, and reach out to others.”                 God must have heard Walter’s plea, because many in both America and Mexico rose up and offered themselves, and their knowledge to help him on his quest for self-revelation. Walter would go on to explain all of the weird and unexpected blessings and miracles that took place throughout the creation of his documentary. It was as if something greater, a higher power was guiding both his hand and his path to seek out all of the ancient truths that he was trying to unveil.                 “People were just so warm and embracing when they realized what I was trying to accomplish, and respected that I was so sincere about it. You would be surprised at how many people will help you when they see how truly dedicated and sincere you are about accomplishing something. I just wanted to do both Tata and my family proud. I am so happy that things worked out the way that they did. Through many cases of Divine Intervention, I was able to come across the right people, find the right locations, make the right connections, call upon the right contacts, and gather up the right information on leads.  On many occasions both my production crew and I were moved to tears with how much of God’s favor that we were shown in certain kinds of situations.”                 Dominguez was able to accumulate a grand total of over 200 hours of footage from his journeys. After meeting with historians like Dr. Ward Albro in Texas, and then trekking for months at a time through the various cities and diverse rural terrain of Mexico, Walter was able to track down and meet many of Grandpa Tata’s long lost relatives that he feared were either assassinated by Porfirio Diaz, or lost to the sands of time.                 “I found everything that I wanted, more than I could ever imagine,” says Dominguez. “I was just happy to be able to interview the elders in my family, and the elders in Tata’s Church before they passed on and took those stories with them. What was even more remarkable for me was that my crew and I embarked on this venture with no actual preconceived ending, script, or proper outline. Christ just guided us every step of the way. The entire experience just totally rejuvenated my faith in both God, humanity, and in the future.”                 Both Walter and his beloved wife Shelly Dominguez continue to promote the film, with strong faith that it will continue to touch the hearts, souls, and minds of many out there who are also embarking on a journey of their own in means of reconnecting with their faith, family, origins, history, and most importantly, themselves.

Recap:Looking back at 2016 Presidential Elections
Current mood:  optimistic

The New American Saga Begins By: SaberFish21 (Special Note: The people interviewed in this story are in fact real people, but personally requested that their true identities be ever so slightly altered do to fear of retaliation from liberal, Hillary Clinton, or Bernie Sanders supporters. It is my Journalistic duty to protect the identities, and lives of my sources from personal, or professional harm, and to protect their Constitutional Rights to vote freely for who they want, and to speak, and express themselves freely about who, how, and why, they chose to vote the way that they did.)                 A “New American Age,” has officially lifted off the runway of world history as of last week, with the Inauguration of the 45th President of The United States Of America, Mr. Donald John Trump. The event was a very patriotic, and epic one, as millions of excited American citizens flooded the streets of Washington D.C. dipped in red, white, and blue clothing; and baseball caps with Trump’s campaign motto, “Make America Great Again,” on them. Many of these bright eyed citizens look to what many refer to as, “The Don,” to take us out of the ashes of The Great Recession, and a failed foreign policy in regards to Obama’s handling of Muslim terrorism in the Middle East. The main objective, is to take America’s sense of Nationalism, self-sufficiency, and production, to levels that match or even surpass that of our beloved nation’s greatest era …the 1940’s, or otherwise known as, “The World War II era.”(www.military.com)                 United States’ Citizens made sure that they were heard loud, and clear that they were deeply disenchanted with the way that our county has been ran over the past eight years with ultra-liberal politicians who they felt didn’t have their best interests in mind. (http://cruxnow.com)  With the Faithful faction of the U.S. population voting as follows for Trump: 81% Evangelical Protestant Christians, 52% Traditionalist Catholics, 58% of other Conservative Protestant Christian Denominations (www.pewresearch.org);  and 39% of Orthodox Jewish voters. (www.haaretz.com)  And this is not even yet considering the 70.6% of Rural Americans spread throughout America’s heartland that pulled for Trump this historic election cycle.                 All of these various sociological elements were made very evident politically with the viewing of “The Donald’s,” Inauguration this past Friday. This could be said considering the reported fact that his Inauguration ceremony broke various records for the most prayer services of any Presidential ‘swearing in event,’ with Jewish, Christian, and Catholic religious icons; such as Evangelical Reverend Franklin Graham(son of famed Evangelist Billy Graham),  Pastor Paula White (who is married to rockstar Johnathan Cain of the band Journey, she is also Trump’s personal Pastor),  Jewish Rabbi Marvin Hier (who runs the Simon Wiesenthal Center here in Los Angeles, California), and Catholic Arch Bishop Timothy M. Dolan ( who serves as lead Cardinal in the New York Archdiocese), all making special appearances to pray, and sermonize over the Ceremony. (www.townhall.com) The Rural American demographic was best represented with all of the hard working class references within the Presidential parade, such as, the a team of farmers on tractors, and the high school, and university marching bands from what liberals so harshly mocked as “just fly over states, with backwards, and uneducated people.”                 With this being said, many in Washington D.C. that day saw it as a triumph of the little guy against a so-called, “progressive,” establishment that viewed them with no respect, and as sub-human.  Several here in the very Conservative enclave of Orange County felt the same sentiments as their rural, and religious American brothers and sisters, as they try to find ways to co-exist in the midst of being smack dabbed in the middle of a very highly liberal, Hollywood-esc, state of California. (www.ocregister.com)                 “I do believe that Donald Trump will make America great again,” says Bill T., of Santa Ana, California. “You know, he didn’t have to do this. Trump didn’t have to run for President. He is 70 years old, he is rich, he could have just retired, he could have just gone to enjoy the fruits of his labor. No, he did this, because he actually cares about the nation. Why would he trade in his billion dollar empire to just be president, and only make a few thousands?”                 When asked to elaborate on Obama’s leadership skills, as compared to Trump’s, Bill said the following, “Trump is an international businessman, he has the knowledge of how to fix America’s debt. Obama has endangered our county by letting Muslim terrorists out of Guantanamo Bay Prison. Obama has also allowed dangerous Muslims with a history of crime and violence into our country that Europe kicked out, and didn’t want; and he did so without the vote of Congress, or the American people. This is all Unconstitutional. He then appoints Muslims to high positions within our government that have ties to terrorist organizations like ‘The Muslim Brotherhood.’ And every time that we do get attacked here at home whether it’s Boston, or San Bernardino, Obama just came on the television sarcastically defending them instead of the American people. Then he mocked us by saying that they are, ‘a religion of peace.’ Many Americans do not feel safe within our own nation.”                 In reference to his experience during the past eight years of Obama’s Presidency, Bill summed it up as follows. “With all due respect, Barak Obama successfully brought our great nation down, and kept it down. He managed to do this for all eight years of his presidency. He was never truthful to the people. He didn’t deliver anything good, not the ‘Hope,’ or  ‘Change,’ that he promised. Instead of focusing on fighting real wars with real foreign enemies like ISIS, and Muslim terrorism; he focused on fake, and fabricated ‘social wars’ like defending abortion…murdering innocent children and illegally harvesting their organs on the black market through Cecil Richards and her Planned Parenthood Organization, and on forcing sexual perversion, and gay marriage on American society; all while going against God’s (Jehovah) law…the God that our nation is supposed to trust in.”                 These are very powerful words coming from one of many American citizens who have had enough of the same bad rhetoric of the past administration, and are ready to punch a ticket on the new Trump plane in hopes of flying off into a brighter future.
