One of the most famous churches in Rome is Santa Maria in Portico (Our Lady of the Porch). It was built to house an image of Our Lady, brought from heaven by an angel, to the blessed Galla in 524. The heavenly image has been carried in processions since 590. And has stopped numerous calamities, such as the plague in Rome in 525, and it protected the Eternal City from a deadly earthquake in 1703. Let us pray to the ever-powerful Santa Maria in Portico to end the Pandemic, and most importantly, to end "the eclipse of the Church"!

After banning President Donald Trump from their social media platforms, Facebook and Twitter have seen their combined market value plummet by $51.2 billion over the last two trading sessions. The news was first reported by Business Insider. 

 

Following the Capitol upheaval last week, Facebook and Twitter indefinitely banned Trump’s accounts, claiming there was risk of additional violence. Their decision prompted a major tech sell-off.

 

Twitter’s stock dropped 6.4% at the beginning of the week and plunged another 2.4% as of Tuesday’s close. The dip resulted in Twitter’s market cap falling by $3.5 billion. Facebook stock was also dumped by investors in the wake of its decision to boot Trump. The company saw a decline of 4% on Monday and another 2.2% on Tuesday, leaving its market cap at $47.6 billion below its Friday level.

 

Clearly both platforms underestimated the president’s popularity, and while Twitter’s stock was trying to rally on Wednesday morning it was dropping off in the afternoon session. Facebook did not get any lift and hovered around its previous closing level. As of Wednesday afternoon, Facebook traded at $251.34 per share, while Twitter traded at $47.92 per share.

forthcoming (Just) unprecidented punishment to mankind.

 

"It is very near twenty-five years since the good, the sweet Virgin Mary, Mother of God, came to shed tears over our mountain. She cried, and for whom? and for what? It is because her people have deviated from the path of virtue and, with rapid strides, hasten to precipitate themselves into the abyss of perdition. Poor people! poor France! Thou knowest not that thou mightest be ground like grain under the millstone of God’s anger and justice. At the present time, it is useless to speak to men; their blindness is supreme. It is necessary that God should speak; and He will speak, but they cannot form an idea how. The Earth must be punished, purified." 

 

(Portion of a Letter of Melanie Calvat, Seer at La Sallete, to a certain Monsieur Gerard, Augest 15, 1871)

 

"The world is immersed in evil ... a human hand is powerless to save it, the hand of God must manifest 

itself visibly, and, I tell you, we shall see this divine hand with our bodily eyes." -Ven. Pope Pius IX
