Pope Francis gave what amounts to a Jubilee Sermon on the Mount to Congress.
In the painting above the artist depicts the followers of God on Jesus’ right, and the secular Democrats on his left. They are unhappy because the boy points out the words “under God” in the Constitution – that did not free the slaves, or, give women the right to vote. This goes against God’s Laws. What went wrong? Did Jesus somehow let the Founding Fathers know he does not want women and blacks to vote?
The truth, is, the End Time followers of John Darby, who raise up the rich and self-righteous by illegally using God and Jesus’ words, are gnashing their teeth. Their rulers on Wall Street are not happy with Francis, because he’s just like Saint Francis.
I, and one other, figured out Jesus was restoring the Jubilee. Only I figured out John spoke when he was eight days old. This suggests God is speaking to me in some manner, giving me private lessons that no other Republican is getting. I became a Republican seven years ago so I could drive Satan’s Lush Bosom Buddies out of our Congress and Senate.
The Laws of the Jubilee had been abolished a hundred years before Jesus was born. When he announced he had come to restore these laws, some Jews were elated, while others, were threatened. Some Jews owned slaves, while others did not. Consider our Civil War.
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,[j]
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”[k]

[19:27] She came to her family, carrying him. They said, “O Mary,
you have committed something that is totally unexpected.

was your mother unchaste.”
The Infant Makes a Statement
[19:29] She pointed to him. They said, “How can we talk with an
infant in the crib?”
[19:30] (The infant spoke and) said, “I am a servant of GOD. He has
given me the scripture, and has appointed me a prophet.

observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and the obligatory charity

WASHINGTON — Pope Francis, the spiritual leader of 1.2 billion Catholics, challenged Congress and by extension the mightiest nation in history on Thursday to break out of its cycle of polarization and paralysis to finally use its power to heal the “open wounds” of a planet torn by hatred, greed, poverty and pollution.
Taking a rostrum never before occupied by the bishop of Rome, the pontiff issued a vigorous call to action on issues largely favored by liberals, including a powerful defense of immigration, a critique of the excesses of capitalism, an endorsement of environmental legislation, a blistering condemnation of the arms trade and a plea to abolish the death penalty.
In particular, Francis beseeched a nation that generates a disproportionate share of the world’s wealth to not let money drive its decisions at the expense of humanity. “Politics is, instead, an expression of our compelling need to live as one, in order to build as one, the greatest common good,” he told a joint meeting of Congress in an address that cited American icons like Abraham Lincoln and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
After his much-anticipated remarks, the pope traveled a short distance from the grandeur of the Capitol to address the plight of Washington’s homeless at St. Patrick’s Church, and to share a meal with those who are without a place to live.
“We can find no social or moral justification, no justification whatsoever, for lack of housing,” the pope said, speaking in Spanish with an interpreter at the church. He urged the homeless to turn toward prayer for strength, and he beseeched those with means to remember them.
“We know that Jesus wanted to show solidarity with every person,” he said.
In his speech at the Capitol, Francis also defended religious liberty and the traditional family at a time when the United States has just legalized same-sex marriage and a Kentucky court clerk went to jail rather than issue marriage certificates violating her religious beliefs. He was less explicit in condemning abortion but called for a defense of life at “every stage of development.”
“I cannot hide my concern for the family, which is threatened perhaps as never before, from within and without,” he said at the end of his speech, delivered in slow, cautious English. “Fundamental relationships are being called into question, as is the very basis of marriage and the family. I can only reiterate the importance and, above all, the richness and the beauty of family life
