La fine
« on: 07 February, 2019, 12:36:51 PM »
Fredde erano le stanze del palazzo pontificio, fredde e buie. Celestino si aggirava tra di esse, stanco, abbattuto, sconfitto. Era passato più di un mese dal suo ultimo intervento al concilio, nulla era accaduto, il fallimento era stato totale. Inascoltate le sue parole, sorde le orecchie di chi avrebbe dovuto ascoltare, cucite le labbra di chi avrebbe potuto o dovuto parlare. Non riusciva a dare colpe, si sentiva l'unico responsabile; inadeguato, incapace. Il male oscuro lo stava lentamente divorando, ne sentiva gli artigli che lo afferravano dilaniandogli le carni, trascinandolo nel buio di un'anfratto senza fine, abitato da demoni.
Celestino tremava avvolto nel drappo rosso, un tempo simbolo di potere e prestigio ora simile a uno straccio, sporco e liso. Non pregava più, bestemmiava, urlava a quel dio che lo aveva costretto a tutto questo e che adesso lo aveva abbandonato. Il papa aveva indossato il cilicio che ogni giorno stringeva un po' di più in modo che il ferro penetrasse nelle carni provocando quel dolore che era sollievo per la mente.
Le sue urla rimbombavano tra quelle mura, riecheggiando di stanza in stanza...la fine era ormai prossima.


Cold were the rooms of the pontifical palace, cold and dark. Celestine was wandering among them, tired, downcast, defeated. It had been more than a month since his last speech at the council, nothing had happened, the failure had been total. Listened to his words, deaf ears of those who should have listened, sewed the lips of those who could or should have spoken. He could not blame, he felt the only responsible; inadequate, incapable. The dark evil was slowly devouring him, he felt the claws that grabbed him by tearing the flesh, dragging him into the darkness of an endless crevice, inhabited by demons.
Celestino trembled wrapped in the red cloth, once a symbol of power and prestige now similar to a rag, dirty and threadbare. He no longer prayed, blasphemed, he screamed at the god who had forced him to all this and now abandoned him. The Pope had worn the hair shirt that every day held a little 'more so that the iron penetrated into the flesh causing the pain that was relief for the mind.
His screams echoed through those walls, echoing from room to room ... the end was now coming.

Ernesto sat in stunned silence, unable to say a word. Some of his most loyal friends and supporters had since abandoned the faith and turned to false teachings.

Ernesto sedeva in un silenzio sbalordito, incapace di dire una parola.  Alcuni dei suoi più fedeli amici e sostenitori avevano abbandonato la fede e si erano rivolti a falsi insegnamenti.

Sandro arrived just in time to see the scene of despair of the Pope and the dismay of Ernesto.

Holy Father, redeem yourself, you are not alone! Teos has put us to the test to see the strength of our faith, but I think above all because we make self-criticism and rediscover the value of our faith and the teachings of Immanuel.
I think we must look into our hearts and rediscover the truth of the teachings of Immanuel, ask Perodno to Teos for our sins and to how many voluntarily or involuntarily we have hurt / offended

Sandro arrivo giusto in tempo per vedere la scena di disperazione del Papa e lo sgomento di Ernesto.

Santo Padre riscuotetevi , non siete solo !  Teos ci ha messo alla prova per vedere la forza della nostra fede , ma penso sopratutto perché facciamo autocritica e riscopriamo il veor valore della nostra fede e gli insegnamenti di Immanuel.
Penso che dobbiamo guardare nei nostri cuori e riscoprire la verità degli insegnamenti di Immanuel , chiedere perodno a Teos per i nostri peccati ed a quanti volontariamente o involontariamente abbiamo ferito / offeso

Ernesto noticed that the Pontifex was not responding so he looked to Cardinal Sandro and said.

“Your Eminence, our beloved Celestino I has grown weak with grief. He is dying but I know not how to heal this kind of wound.”



Ernesto si accorse che il Pontefice non rispondeva, così guardò il cardinale Sandro e disse.

"Vostra Eminenza, il nostro amato Celestino I si è indebolito con il dolore.  Sta morendo, ma io non so come guarire questo tipo di ferite".

Sandro listened attentively to Monsignor Strozzi approached the Pope, took him in his arms and felt that he was now breathing hard.
He spoke to Monsignor Strozzi
"Let's pray together for our Pope we can not do anything else"

Sandro ascoltò con attenzione monsignor strozzi si avvicinò al Papa , lo prese tra le braccia e sentì che  questi ormai respirava a fatica .
Si rivolse a Monsignor Strozzi
" Preghiamo insieme per il nostro Papa altro non possiamo ormai fare "

20-Feb-1319, 23:52:02   Celestino I, Summus Pontifex Theological Church died, the role is vacant. The man tried to do something but couldn't. Those who held his relic respected him more than his flock. It's sad...Brodnik drank a horn of wine in memory of the head of the theologians...

Gracia left the scroll she had received on her lap and sighed.... Tears run ....

She remembered how much love, how much kindness, how much understanding Father Celestino  put on his sermons every Sunday, when he was a humble priest in a small parish church, and how much comfort  she felt when reading them.

She remembered how Reverend Father Celestino had said a mass for the soul of her King, His Majesty Lello Da Chianciano, and his wise words to her, his advice.

She also remembered how the theological faithfull had asked him to guide them in extremely difficult times. Gracia had met three Pontiffs in her life; she knew all of them made the best they could, given the circumstances in which they lived.
Gracia knew about the campaings of difamation done  against the last Pontiffs and also the ugly insults that some supposed smart regents made to them. Shame! That their tongues rot inside their mouths!

It is not easy to take the responsability to become the Great Sheperd. Every decision the Holy Father takes will be critiziced by the enemies, and sadly, by his own flock in some cases. It is not easy to live in the Holy See, which is in Rome, when the King of Rome is another person with different targets, ideas and ways of behaving, because what the king of Rome does can be mistaken with the Pontiff´s  own behaviour. People tend to identify the Pope with the Regent of the Roman Republic, as if they were the same. The regent has a political and military power just in his kingdom, the Pope an spiritual guideness for his flock everywhere.

Probably this is difficult to understand for beligerant religions such us the patriarcal, a religion invented for military purposes .
That is one of the differences between the easterns and the westerns: 100 easternes = 1 head / 100 westerns = 100 heads
I really don´t know if all the patriarcals think the same or if only they are programmed since they are born to follow instructions with strict discipline. I know that among us, every single individual thinks different, and everybody believes firmly that his way is the one, that his ideas are the solution. This means, of course, endless discussions...until a real charismatic leader appears.
And even if there is a clear leader, some people do their own way.

Reverend Father Celestino agreed to be the Holy Father, knowing all this, living in a city raided eight or nine times by the revengefull patriarcals. Even though, he invited them to a Peace Council, in an attempt to find a peaceful solution.

 Gracia was a that time Chancellor of the Kingdom of Castilla and León, Vassal and Duchess of Burgos; she was not invited to take part in the conversations. It didn´t matter. Her presence would have not changed the fact that the patriarcal regents wanted their absolut, full revenge over the arberian/sicilian/roman alliance which had conquered some of their regions, stolen their relic and damaged some of their temples. They also wanted full vengeance over the people who dared to give the defeated shelter, or the friends of those, or the flies overflying them. They were "giving lessons".

In the way the patriarcals arrived to the Council, fully armoured or even with a dog, in the prepotent and arrogant way they talked, Gracia knew from the very beginning that, this Council was wasted time, because nobody was going to step back just an inch. There was not going to be a compromise.  All those difficult conversations worn our Holy Father.

He had suffered so much. In a few months he became several years older, his health failed.  He had close and good companions, good collaborators who kept giving him courage....but the strikes were too big.

Gracia regreted not having written to him in the last  weeks, just to tell him he had not failed. That he was a good man with a great heart. That he was their hope in a better future. That he was an example to follow. Now, it was too late.

All she could do was to pray for his soul. May Theos bring him to a place of Peace.

Ezzelino heard the news of the death of the pope and was amazed and grieved. His memory went back to when he was cardinal of his diocese and the fine prayers he formulated every Sunday, his courageous attempt to bring the relic back to Rome with a council. He probably made some mistakes, but nevertheless in good faith and for the cause of Theo.
But now it doesn't matter that he can rest in peace forever.

Ezzelino finally falls asleep praying for the soul of the deceased.

Ezzelino sentita la notizia della morte del papa rimase stupito e addolorato. Il suo ricordo andava a quando era cardinale della sua diocesi e le belle preghiere che formulava ogni domenica, il suo coraggioso tentativo di riportare la reliquia a Roma con un concilio. Probabilmente fece alcuni sbagli, ma comunque in buona fede e per la causa  di Theo.
Ma ora questo non importa più possa egli riposare in pace per sempre.

Ezzelino infine si addormento pregando per l'anima del defunto

Eliana had supported the election of the new Pope Celestine by giving him at least 7 votes. She had not voted to ask for his help but to make sense of the choice of theological faith. Celestine like Alexander VII failed and so Eliana abandoned religious faith.
Theological religion is now a branch of the patriarchal faith and the theological kingdoms shamelessly lucrate on the goods of the church.
May your soul rest in peace.
