Abit surprised

Posted: November 11, 2008 by piusranson in Life, Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, School

Yesterday morning, i heard something that really surprises me. haha. I have this protestant friend in my class who told me something like, “One cannot interpret the bible themselves that is why we have pastors to do it”. Amazing right?

Yes precisely! one cannot interpret the bible by themselves that is why the One, holy, catholic and apostolic Church have the MAGISTERIUM, the teaching authority of the Church to pass their both their ORAL TRADITION AND SCRIPTURE TEACHINGS to us. St. Augustine once tell us that if not for the Church, with the capital C, he would not have believed in the bible.

I seriously wonder how do protestants interpret the following

6 52 If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, for the life of the world. si quis manducaverit ex hoc pane vivet in aeternum et panis quem ego dabo caro mea est pro mundi vita
6 53 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying: How can this man give us his flesh to eat? litigabant ergo Iudaei ad invicem dicentes quomodo potest hic nobis carnem suam dare ad manducandum
6 54 Then Jesus said to them: Amen, amen, I say unto you: except you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you. dixit ergo eis Iesus amen amen dico vobis nisi manducaveritis carnem Filii hominis et biberitis eius sanguinem non habetis vitam in vobis
6 55 He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day. qui manducat meam carnem et bibit meum sanguinem habet vitam aeternam et ego resuscitabo eum in novissimo die
6 56 For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed. caro enim mea vere est cibus et sanguis meus vere est potus
6 57 He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood abideth in me: and I in him. qui manducat meam carnem et bibit meum sanguinem in me manet et ego in illo
6 58 As the living Father hath sent me and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, the same also shall live by me. sicut misit me vivens Pater et ego vivo propter Patrem et qui manducat me et ipse vivet propter me
6 59 This is the bread that came down from heaven. Not as your fathers did eat manna and are dead. He that eateth this bread shall live for ever. hic est panis qui de caelo descendit non sicut manducaverunt patres vestri manna et mortui sunt qui manducat hunc panem vivet in aeternum

How would protestants interpret this ?

Today i was in the train coming to school. A middle aged lady came in. I was standing at this corner beside the train door. She suddenly keep coughing towards me and of cause i will attempt to breathe from other corners wherever i can. I SAW THIS RED EMERGENCY BUTTON BESIDE ME. With the woman still coughing, i was so so tempted to press the emergency button but i did not because i saw the penalty for misuse sign. hahahahahahahahaha.

TTFN!

Catholics, i encourage you all to watch it to understand and defend your faith.

Protestants, you are not encouraged to watch them, but you may.

Dear all,

today i went to school slightly late. 8.20am. LOL. well because my usual time of arrival is before 8am and why on earth am i proud of that =.=. Yes it is tiring! But i think going to school early at 8am gives me ample time to do my homework. Yeah, finish those that i have not complete over the weekend.

Oh yes, speaking about homework, i realise i can never complete a homework by myself ! Accounts was done with Cheryl’s great help ( i wrote this on purpose lawls..so she sees me crediting her twice). Econs was done with the help of Xiuhui. argh. It is not going to be easy this semester. And i think completing homeworks over weekend is a good habit ! That is because you can chat on the MSN messenger on the weekdays. Finished MOB this morning with the help of … ? haiya i scared third time damn overdoing haha.

First lesson was by Jansen. Well quite interesting though with his travel stories. I’ve got a feeling he told those stories because he knew the class was alittle boring. I HAVE CRITICAL REASONING ASSESSMENT NEXT WEEK. I think i’m choosing the topic of Abortion though the article i have to argue on is quite badly written but i think that is the topic i’m most comfortable with. So comfortable i had a chat with Syakir and HT on abortion and euthanasia.

Second lesson, yeah another “Don’t call me **** because it is reserved for my loved ones” lesson. Ms Access is not easy, well, easy on the techniques and skills but ya, tedious. Every monday we have to endure three hours of non-stop ITAB. During break time i went to the canteen. *Again i hate fate*. Realised FC6 indeed have banana zui but not as nice as FC3’s banana zui. I think over at FC3, they added some nicotine or something to induce my addiction in theirs. My banana zui fell from my desk and there goes my 1.10. Anyway, rest well adeline! Don’t overwork.

Since the start of the new semester, i think there are changes within the class’ unity kind of thing. Did a few analysis on certain classmates. I shall say some. muahaha. Huahan is the only person in my entire life that i don’t understand a single bit. haha. He loves to play psychological game. Meshach ah..hmm he can’t multitask. well im not saying he can’t multitask but just that he is realllly bad at it. Do you all remember the fight ? we know who is humble and who is not.

Alright. Tata for now.

The three days

Posted: November 1, 2008 by piusranson in Life, Roman Catholicism, School

Yes, yesterday was All Hallows’ Eve a.k.a Halloween, a day where Catholics keep vigil for All Hallows’ Day a.ka All Saints’ Day! In certain countries, Halloween is like a Big big event where they have trick or treats kind of thing. Singapore hmm, yes maybe you’d only find that kind of thing in places like Zouk.

Woke up freakin’ early today (ok la..everyday also same time haha) because apparently our ITAB2 teacher wanted to conduct make up classes. Oh! Vishal is like playing the froggy game throughout ITAB2 lesson and was convincing me to play. Well, in fact i did when i got home, no it is not easy and he managed to reach level 50 or something. Sheesh! Had a break and went to buy banana zui, my favourite juice of allll time. If banana zui is available in FC6, i would buy that so long i step in FC6. Bananas in FC6 is really expensive. 40 Cents! *Oh i hate fate*

Went for Accounting lesson. I totally couldn’t understand what on earth Mrs Sharon Tan was teaching for the disposal of assets. Thank goodness Cheryl did help me with my Accounting homework. It was break time and i had a horrible lunch eating the thai food. GEM time! Everyweek i await for this lesson. rofl. Yeah, Better pronunciation for better speech. Button is pronounced Butt-en and no drawer is not pronounced draw-wer, it is Draw’ er. K la, im sure my other 4 classmates in the same module had fun too.

Ok it is MOB TIME! We need to do this egg thingy. yeah. failed. sad. It costs us FIVE PERCENT. haha. sian right? but had a great time planning and doing it too. so ya. haha. I wasn’t concentrating cause thinking how to ‘surprise’ Theresa. Two days ago i was still in a dilemma on what to get for Theresa. Few of us even asked huiying to fakingly(sic) ask what’s theresa’s favourite flavour of cookie so that we’ll know what cake to get. I don’t even know what present to buy. Thank goodness, theresa had this updated wishlist thing. hahahahahaha and thank goodness, yanlin and xiuhui’s GEM cancelled. They went to get the present. Everything went well. =). Remember to pay me money ah! hahahaha. Who’s next ? I think i can’t keep asking people to contribute to presents la..kind of…bad. yeah. k.

Today! It is ALL SAINTS DAY! Omnes Sancti Angeli et Archangeli, Orate pro nobis! I went to Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary for Mass. Fr. Bill Heng was there. Surprisingly i did reflect on his homily. Surprisingly there is no Litany of the Saints. Sad.

Now im just awaiting ALL SOULS DAY!

Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine. Et lux perpetua leceat eis. Requiescant in Pace. Amen. Blessed mother, please plead for us to your dear son, to save the souls in purgatory. Gratias tibi.
