Act During this Year of Mercy

The Greatest Commandment is the basis for all the other Bible passages about helping people. This leads to a very overarching definition of love. To love one another includes helping them when they are in-need.

St. Catherine of Siena (b. 1347) Known for her many acts of mercy

Taking Care of Others:  Jesus directs us toward the broad reach of loving others and the divine judgments to come for those who do not. Loving one another is a primary commandment, and thus we would expect discipline when we are not actively following this commandment.

“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” (Matthew 25:34-46).

We need to help people God’s way and not allow them to just drift along in the ways of the world. Pray for the intercession of the Holy Spirit. We’ll act out of mercy, love, and helping in the best way.

At Caesarea, there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion in what was known as the Italian Regiment. He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly. (Acts 10:1-2).

Helping others is not about our abilities and strengths, but about God’s direction and empowerment through the in-dwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Ultimatum in Northern Silicon Valley — A Final Solution / Exit Plan / Happy Ending — to Movie Script “Country Corner: Germ Warfare” for the ‘Kathy Bates’ and ‘Debra Winger’ Characters

Circa 2008 through 2015



 [Wednesday, February 4, 2015]

Prior to the release of:

  1. “Country Corner Market & Deli vs. Silly-Con Valley” (copyright 2001)
  2. “Country Corner: Germ Warfare” (copyright 2010)  and
  3. “Country Corner: 2020 – A Spaced Odyssey” (copyright 2015)

These female characters should sell their real estate that is within 100 yards (the length of most of a football or soccer field) of the Country Corner Market & Deli of West Menlo Park, Northern California (southern San Mateo County) by the beginning of Stanford Universities and the University of Michigan Wolverines’ football seasons or ELSE . . .

The screenwriters’ hunger strike began today (Saturday, January 24, 2015) before 7:15 a.m. PST.

In addition, the screenwriter will never set foot in this store ever again, unless . . .

Therefore, these two busyiness-meddling, “sexy”, gossiping, perhaps overweight, whatever-else, duh, post-menopausal women MUST sell-out AND leave this fine community that has probably the best deli, best wine selection, best three owners, best family-oriented business, best weather, best busy traffic, and best customers in the (North, South, and Central) Americas.

Failure to do so will result in guilt, anguish, anxiety, danger, and many negative consequences (that largely will be self-inflicted). Yes, you ‘Kathy Bates’.

And yes, you ‘Debra Winger’ character model; mother to the screenwriter’s only child; real-life icon to pre-schoolers.
