Benedict XVI and Harry Potter are both wizards
With the Eucharist as the strongest black magic on the Planet Earth -- Catholic priests commanding Christ's flesh to come down into the wafer host and his Blood into man-made wine -- Benedict XVI and the Vatican has joined the Harry Potter wizardry. If you can't beat them, join them.
Benedict XVI wants to join-in the millions of Harry Potter fan so Benedict XVI and the Opus Dei have lost their Christian integrity and joined into the secular wizardry of the world.
Those Opus Dei eunuchs are so dumb they cannot be astronomers and so they shut down the Jesuit’s Vatican Observatory. They’d rather be practising Eucharistic-wizardry with Harry Potter than allowing the good Jesuits their scientific job.
The Opus Dei live only in millionaires’ row and so they silenced the Jesuit Jon Sobrino from speaking up for the poor. Benedict XVI said “Outside the Catholic Church there is no salvation. Jon Sobrino says: Outside the poor there is no salvation.
Jon Sobrino tickles the consciences of filthy-rich Benedict XVI and the Opus Dei and so they silenced him, see the John Paul II Millstone also for details www.jp2m.blogspot.com
VATICAN CITY — The Vatican lauded the latest Harry Potter film on Monday, saying "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" made the age-old debate over good vs. evil crystal clear.
The Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano even gave two thumbs up to the film's treatment of adolescent love, saying it achieved the "correct balance" and made the stars more credible to the general audience.
The newspaper said the film, which opens Wednesday, was the best adaptation yet of the J.K. Rowling series about the adventures of the bespectacled child wizard Harry Potter and his Hogwarts chums as they battle Harry's nemesis, the evil sorcerer Voldemort.
While criticizing Rowling for omitting any explicit "reference to the transcendent" in her books, L'Osservatore said the latest installment nevertheless makes clear that good should overcome evil "and that sometimes this requires costs and sacrifice."
"In addition, the spastic search for immortality epitomized by Voldemort is stigmatized," the review said.
The Vatican's praise follows the sharp criticism of the Harry Potter series by a conservative Austrian priest at the center of a church crisis earlier this year.
The Rev. Gerhard Maria Wagner had characterized Harry Potter novels as Satanism, while also suggesting Hurricane Katrina, which ravaged New Orleans and surrounding areas, was provoked by sin.
Pope Benedict XVI promoted Wager to the post of auxiliary bishop in Linz, Austria's third largest city, in January. But amid an outcry among Austrian Catholics over his comments, Wagner eventually gave up the promotion.
