It always surprises me that Cardinal Hume was a member of the St Gallen group. I would however point out that he died in about 2000 so had no hand in the promotion of Pope Francis in the two subsequent conclaves. I had dealings with him over the promotion of abortion and other evils at the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth in London of which he was President. He was furious at what was going on and supported orthodoxy. Quite unlike his successor Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor who was prominent in the St Gallen group and actively canvassed for the election of Pope Francis. We are told that Cardinal Cormac is now seriously ill and we should therefore pray for him. I think he will need our prayers.
Before I was saved, rock music was my life. A former rock guitarist, (and yes, I still play the guitar) I know the love for rock music people have. But I also know the source and effects of rock music. I have spent thousands of hours researching rock music. Music is very important in the spiritual life of a child of God. And the wrong music can spiritually destroy the child of God. I ask you to prayerfully obey, 1 Thess. 5:21-23, " Prove all things ; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil . And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." We also have a Christian Rock: Questions and Answers page and a Bible Guidelines for Christian Music (link available at end), in which, we answer many of the questions readers have asked. We provide Biblical and documented answers to the following questions, and more:
“‘You are to be the custodian of a certain silver amulet. I will not give it to you today; to demonstrate the truth in my words, the talisman shall materialize in your hands tomorrow as you meditate. On your deathbed, you must instruct your eldest son Ananta to keep the amulet for one year and then to hand it over to your second son. Mukunda will understand the meaning of the talisman from the great ones. He should receive it about the time he is ready to renounce all worldly hopes and start his vital search for God. When he has retained the amulet for some years, and when it has served its purpose, it shall vanish. Even if kept in the most secret spot, it shall return whence it came.’
