Apparently Jesus Christ Appeared In A Cloud Formation And Faithfuls And Non-Faithfuls Are Losing Their Sh*t

A photo has gone viral showing what some are calling the shape of Jesus Christ in clouds over San Salvador Jujuy, Argentina. The community, which is made up of 275, 188 people according to the 2010 census. Now, people around the world are talking about the area thanks to the surprise cloud formation.

This is the image people claim shows Jesus Christ in the clouds over San Salvador de Jujuy, Argentina.

According to Fox News, San Salvador de Jujuy resident Mónica Aramayo saw the shape appear in the sky. At that moment, she too out her cell phone and took a photo of the formation and she posted ti to bless other social media users.

The photo has sparked a religious debate all over Twitter as users battle over its authenticity.

A lot of users chose to see the photo as a sign of Jesus Christ’s second coming. Some have been saying that Christians need to start preparing for the end of days.

Those who don’t believe in the religious message are letting themselves be heard.

There are an equal amount of people that are speaking up that the formation is just a formation. Several countries across the world have seen a decline of the Christian population. However, it does continue to be the dominate religion of the the world.

Some people went another way and just assumed it was a reflection of a statue of Jesus in Argentina.

Seems like a stretch but everyone likes to have their own theories. Seems like it would be hard for that to appear that far away but a theory is a theory.

So many Twitter users have chosen to believe in the message that it is a sign for the faithful servants of the Lord.

Honestly, we’re just waiting for our tías and abuelas to start sending this around with a blessing attached. It is only a matter of time before we see this photo all over our newsfeeds because of the very family members mentioned above.

This isn’t the first time this year that someone saw Jesus in the clouds. He even appeared in Italy.

Italian artist and chef Alfredo Lo Brutto was overjoyed when he captured a photo of what looked like a Jesus formation over the ocean. According to The Sun, the artist posted the photo to Facebook and it wasn’t long until the photo went viral.

It also isn’t the first time that Latinos have been overjoyed with finding Jesus in an inanimate object and set out to share it with the world.

In 1977, a Latina mother in New Mexico became the first person to spot Jesus Christ on a tortilla. As Angelica Rubio recalled for The Eater, the discovery of the tortilla convinced her mother to set up a dedicated shrine to the tortilla to make sure people could come to see the miracle. The tortillas, made by Rubio’s mother every morning, held a surprise one morning as she saw a burn mark in one tortilla that looked just like the Lord Jesus Christ.

Some people do have some very serious questions about why these Jesus apparitions are showing up in very specific parts of the world.

It is an interesting question, for sure. Why do these Jesus apparitions show themselves to believers and not non-believers? It is a curious situation when you realize that these Jesus apparitions haven’t shown up in communities that aren’t Christian in nature. But, who are we to judge? What do you think about the apparition?

Pope Francis Condemns Capitalism and Populism in New Official Church Document

Pope Francis Condemns Capitalism and Populism in New Official Church Document

In his latest encyclical–an authoritative papal document–Pope Francis has laid out his ideas of what he believes the world needs to become post-pandemic.

The document, entitled Fratelli Tutti (which means “Brothers All” in Italian), is an ode to a more communal, fraternal society, one in which we aren’t as divided by borders and differences, but united in our shared humanity. However, the document is making headlines for a different reason.

In it, the Pope laments the failures of free-market capitalism which he believes has failed the poor and weak during this global “calamity”.

“The marketplace by itself cannot resolve every problem, however much we are asked to believe this dogma of neoliberal faith,” he said in the encyclical.

He continued: “Neoliberalism simply reproduces itself by resorting to the magic theories of “spillover” or “trickle” – without using the name – as the only solution to societal problems. There is little appreciation of the fact that the alleged “spillover” does not resolve the inequality that gives rise to new forms of violence threatening the fabric of society. It is imperative to have a proactive economic policy directed at ‘promoting an economy that favors productive diversity and business creativity.'”

Pope Francis even touches on the topic of privilege, which he explains prevents everyone from benefiting equally from a free market.

“Some people are born into economically stable families, receive a fine education, grow up well nourished, or naturally possess great talent,” he said. “Yet the same rule clearly does not apply to a disabled person, to someone born in dire poverty, to those lacking a good education and with little access to adequate health care.”

This isn’t the first time Pope Francis has voiced his opinion on contemporary socio-economic issues. The Argentinian Jesuit has largely been considered progressive due to his comparatively open-minded takes on controversial topics like divorceclimate change, and LGBT issues.

According to Pope Francis, he began writing the encyclical at the beginning of the year, but the document’s message took a very different turn when COVID-19 “unexpectedly erupted” across the globe, “exposing our false securities.”

“Fratelli Tutti” is surprising to people because of how progressive it is. Especially coming from an authority figure that is head of a traditionally conservative institution.

Among his thought-provoking ideas, he shares such gems as: “Racism is a virus that quickly mutates and, instead of disappearing, goes into hiding, and lurks in waiting.”

He also explains that the term “populism” is being co-opted by powerful people who want nothing more than to exploit a country’s people for their own personal interests.

Pope Francis ended the encyclical with an universal call for “peace, justice and fraternity” among everyone.

From Puerto Rico To New York, Hurricane Isaías Has Devastated Millions

Hurricane Isaías is just one hurricane of an expectedly active season. The storm-battered the Caribbean islands before making its way to the Carolinas and up the east coast. The storm has killed 5 people and we are still at the beginning of hurricane season.

Tropical Storm Isaías slammed into Puerto Rico on July 31.

The storm knocked out power to thousands of Puerto Ricans as the storm approached. Dozens had to be rescued from the area of Mayaguez as flooding devastated the area. José Ortiz, the CEO of the state-run power company resigned after the power outages rocked the island still reeling from hurricanes and earthquakes.

The storm grew to a category 1 hurricane as it battered the Bahamas.

The storm killed at least one person in the Bahamas and weakened to a tropical storm as it hit the island. The storm triggered a series of warning along the Florida coastline from Boca Raton to Brevard county. The storm ravaged parts of the Bahamas with winds up to 80 miles per hour.

Florida was spared much of the storm as it changed course.

Florida, which is already grappling with a terrifyingly out of control Covid outbreak, was spared a direct hit from Hurricane Isaías. The storm turned north and brushed along Florida’s eastern coastline. The storm was headed directly to the Carolinas.

North and South Carolina braced for a direct hit from the storm as it made its way north.

The storm made landfall with 85 mile-per-hour winds in the Carolinas bring heavy winds and flooding. Millions of people lost power as the storm lashed the east coast for two days while making its way up to New York. Flooding was particularly devastating in Pennsylvania as the storm forced millions sin to some form of flood warning.

The storm arrived in New York on August 4 and packed a punch.

Tropical Storm Isaías devastated the tri-state region. Millions are without power in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut after the storm destroyed homes, power lines, and cars.

Officials for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are warning the east coast of a more active hurricane season. After Isaías, the season could bring 10 more hurricanes with potentially devastating effects. As the season picks up, it is important to be prepared. Makes sure you have an emergency plan and an emergency kit.
