Long live camaraderie!

The apostles lived in the spirit of camaraderie,
In such a way that they shared one heart and soul.
Camaraderie is to perform acts of kindness together,
To discuss and solve problems without animosity,
To practice tolerance, humility, and patience,
To teach and learn something from one another,
To care for each other and long for those absent,
To welcome each other with joy upon arrival,
And to part from each other with a blessing.
Let all good people, now join in our song,
Long live camaraderie!
Success to each other, and pass it along,
Long live camaraderie!
¡Viva, viva, viva el amor!
¡Viva, viva, viva el amor!
¡Viva  amor! ¡Viva  amor!
!Viva la camaradería!
Long live love! Long live love!
Long live camaraderie!

What comes next?

Watchman, watchman, how goes the night?
Morning comes, and then the light.
So tell me watchman, what comes next?
Night comes again and then the reckoning.
The past meets the future with every heartbeat.
Be thou ready when thy time comes.
Don't be caught without thy lamp.
"Again Jesus spoke to them, saying,
'I am the light of the world.
Who follows me will not walk in darkness,
But will have the light of life.' " (John 8:12)

I will heal them.

Those of faith who have hearts with "eyes to see and ears to hear,"
Can see and hear the vision of the Creator through intuition.
Others depend on tradition and ritual to ease their conscience.
They are in a constant cognitive struggle between the real truth
And the made-up truth, as they prefer it and pretend it to be.
In times of crisis, reality is unveiled and the world goes berserk.
The present corona virus pandemic is our wake-up call.
It is time that we open our hearts and see the light.
"For the heart of this people has grown dull,
And they barely hear with the ears, and they have closed their eyes,
Lest ever they should see with the eyes, and should hear with the ears,
And they should understand with the heart,
And should turn, and I will heal them." (Matthew 13:15)
