Time is linked organically with space and cannot be understood without it. It was created instantaneously. In other words, both time and space were created outside time, by the will of God. https://t.co/sP4aXefCNK— OCN (@MyOCN) January 14, 2021

Aristotle posited 4 categories of causality— Joe Norman (@normonics) January 15, 2021
3 of them are covered by contemporary physical theory
1 of them, final cause, where the end state of an action serves as its cause, is not. it is assumed to be en epiphenomenon and not "real" causality

“Recognizing that all people are our brothers and sisters, and seeking forms of social friendship that include everyone, is not merely utopian. It demands a decisive commitment to devising effective means to this end” Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti, par. 180— Dr. Tim Uhl (@drtimuhl) January 14, 2021
What does Bergoglio kniw of friendship? Eve if he has read the Nicomachean Ethics, that wouldn't be enough.

What we need to see, and see clearly, is this: the highest dignity of the baptized is to welcome Christ the Lord in Holy Communion. Period. Nothing else they do, no other function or service or activity, can compare to the Marian privilege of receiving God. When we elaborately multiply functions, services, and activities, we introduce distractions, invert priorities, build false hierarchies, and undermine simple faith, devotion, humility, and reverence. The participatio actuosa or actual participation of the faithful in the liturgy is not about doing, but about being, or more precisely, being a good recipient of the Word, so that this Word may be fruitful in us. It is not about busyness with much serving, but about contemplation, the union of love.
There is also the receptivity of the Son, who receives everything from the Father. Marian receptivity is symbolized by her, as a woman, becoming the Theotokos. Marian receptivity on a spiritual level is the receiving of the Divine Life by being a filia in Filio, just as the Son receives everything He is from the Father.
We possess a great wealth that depends on what we are: the life we have received, the good within us, the indelible beauty God has given us by making us in his image. All these things make each of us precious in his eyes, each one of us is priceless and unique in history.— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) January 12, 2021

This is the great meaning of #Christmas: God becomes man so that we can become children of God.— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) January 10, 2021
It is striking that the Lord spent most of his time on Earth living an ordinary life, without standing out. It is a beautiful message that reveals the greatness of daily life, the importance in God's eyes of every gesture and moment of life, even the most simple.— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) January 11, 2021
The "hidden life" or the daily life of Christ before His public ministry was nonetheless a manifestation of the glory of the Son of God. Daily life by itself is not "important to God"; what is important is that Christ redeemed it through His incarnation. It is not what we offer, but what God offers to us.
