My Sister

Earlier today I had a few ideas on where to begin this essay, but by the time I got to my computer, and took time to read the news, the beginning had changed significantly. The following articles were too rich to pass up, and for a moment, I thought I should change the essay title to something like: From the Mouth of Babes

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Francis denounced on Wednesday what he called a “culture of waste” in an increasingly consumerist world and said throwing away good food was like stealing from poor people.

Someone brought my attention to an article written in 1991. The article described the savage inequalities in America’s schools and cities (by Jonathan Kozol). It was tough to read. Allow me to share a little of this. 
The narrative begins when, without warning, Smokey says, “My sister has got killed.”
His sister was raped and murdered and then dumped behind his school. She was 11 years old. She was beaten with a brick until she died. The murder was committed by a man who knew her mother. The police arrested one man, but didn’t catch the other.
And this, direct from the article:
“Instead of raping little bitty children, they should find themselves a wife,” says Little Sister.
“I hope,” Serena says, “her spirit will come back and get that man.”
“And kill that man,” says Little Sister.
“Give her another chance to live,” says Serena.
From the mouths of babes.
Where do we feed? Where do you feed? What forms your opinions and destinations? In God Understanding, feeding is found in the Realities of who we are, who we become. My Sister is a martyr, a true saint. Why? Before the age of God Understanding, My Sister was raped and murdered at the hands of men. My Sister is saint. My Sister will be made ready for Judgement Day. Her life begins as saint; it does not end here.
Do you not know that the saints shall judge the world? Corinthians 6.2
Those who are unbelievers often ask: Why does God, or, your God, allow horrific acts to occur?
First of all, God allows all free will, including the angels. But Lord says: Look; see; what has your laws done to the people? Who set up these laws? How have they been inspired? By whose hand have they been written? Do you not understand the voice of My Prophets? 
And He asks each to understand the feeding. In the Feeding of the Multitude at Tabitha, Jesus demonstrates the meaning of life and death in the Realm of the Rendering, or Transformation of self. Fish is symbolic of female; bread is symbolic of male. This, also spoken of in other essays shares in the Spiritual Understanding of water as feminine, and land as masculine. So, in Essence, His question is a question of Who; Who are you in Church?
But one must understand Church in order to understand ID, or that Station one is called within.
Where do the wee ones go who have been cut down at the hands of men? My Sister is saint. Is she looking down from heaven? What is heaven? Is she under the bridal veil?
Man is spiritually immature. He knows not where these are, as he knows not who is saint. Let’s look at the Angels. Who is Angel?
And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel. Acts 6.15
