Guide to Air France 447: Facts, Rumors and Where Things Stand

What We Know for Sure and the Status of Theories About What Went Wrong
By LISA STARK and KATE BARRETT
June 12, 2009

The key to understanding why the plane went down may never be found.

It's a major puzzle that will take months and months to piece together. It's a massive search effort in a remote location. Virtually no hypothesis or theory about what happened is off the table.

In this relatively early phase of the investigation into what happened on Air France Flight 447, here's a look at where things stand.

Where the Search Stands

Hunting for black boxes: T minus 18 days. The pinging sounds coming from the black boxes are estimated to last 30 days from the time of the crash, so the clock is ticking.

A French nuclear sub, the Emeraude, equipped with high-tech sonar equipment, is at the crash site listening for the acoustics coming from the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder.

Scheduled to arrive Friday is a French research vessel called the Pourquoi Pas, the only vessel in the French arsenal that carries underwater robots to retrieve the black boxes if their signals are detected. A U.S. Navy underwater listening device that can pick up the pinging sound from the black boxes at depths of 20,000 feet is also expected in the water Sunday.

Debris and remains: Crash remnants already pulled out of the Atlantic have been flown to the island of Fernando de Noronha, the closest land to the crash site, some 400 miles off Brazil's coast. The bodies recovered will be analyzed on the island, then transported to the mainland town of Recife this weekend for further identification and forensic exams.

Number of bodies recovered: 41

Major debris recovered: A large chunk of the stabilizer from the plane's tail, wiring, an airline seat, a boarding pass from the flight.

How long the search will last: At least until June 19, according to the Brazilian Air Force.

Ocean currents and wind now play a part in recovery efforts because the crash happened more than a week ago. The Brazilian Air Force is calculating that ocean currents are carrying bodies north. The U.S. Coast Guard is helping map the debris field and tracing backwards to help locate the crash location.

St Isaac Jogues, martyr

On the eve of Corpus Christi, 1646, Father Isaac Jogues, a Jesuit missionary, discovered a beautiful lake and named it the Lake of the Blessed Sacrament.

...Hope dawned brightly over Huronia as the Jesuit missions gained stability. Ste.-Marie, the hub of the missionary efforts in New France, had been established in 1639, and the evangelism of the likes of Fathers Jean de Brébeuf, Antoine Daniel, and Charles Garnier had begun to bear fruit. With the Hurons still reeling from disease, drought, and supply shortages caused by Iroquois blockades along the St. Lawrence River, Isaac Jogues, a priest three years ordained, was sent to them. Like Fathers Brébeuf and Daniel, Jogues, born in Orléans, had been a novice in Rouen under the famous novice master Louis Lalemant. Father Jogues arrived in Québec on July 2, 1636, accompanied by Fr. du Marche. He was reputed for his quiet strength. His friend and fellow Jesuit in France, Fr. Jacques Buteaux, said of Jogues, “he was loved by ours as being most gentle and as being very observant of our way of life.”

Isaac Jogues joined the late-summer leg of a Huron trade convoy from Québec, arriving in Ihonahitria on September 11, 1636. There, the young Jesuit was trained by his more experienced confrères in missionary work, Fathers Brébeuf and le Mercier. Intelligent and receptive to instruction, Jogues was appointed to oversee construction of the new mission settlement of Ste.-Marie among the Hurons along with Jérôme Lalemant, the new Jesuit Superior in Huronia. Meanwhile, he had also worked alongside the influential Charles Garnier in the Tobacco Nation, where the blackrobes’ efforts nearly ended in disaster. Jérôme Lalemant wrote, “These missionaries see themselves the abomination of those whose salvation they seek, at the peril of their own lives.” Jogues’ labours with Garnier were short-lived; he was asked to investigate the possibility of expansion of the missions to the Sault Nation. Jogues and Fr. Charles Raymbaut reached the link between Lakes Huron and Superior, current site of Sault Ste.-Marie, after seventeen days of canoeing. They were welcomed by a new people estimated at 2 000 individuals...

Méditation avec Jacques-Bénigne BOSSUET

Méditation avec Jacques-Bénigne BOSSUET, (1627-1704), évêque de Meaux.

Sans rien préparer, sans rien tempérer, sans rien expliquer, ni devant ni après, on nous dit tout court : « Jésus dit : Ceci est mon corps, ceci est mon sang ; mon corps donné, mon sang répandu.

Voilà ce que je vous donne : et vous, que ferez-vous en le recevant ? Souvenez-vous éternellement du présent que je vous fais en cette nuit ; souvenez-vous que c’est moi qui vous l’ai laissé et qui ai fait ce testament, qui vous ai laissé cette Pâque et qui l’ai mangée avec vous avant que de souffrir. Si je vous donne mon corps comme devant être, comme ayant été livré pour vous, et mon sang comme répandu pour vos péchés ; en un mot, si je vous le donne comme une victime, mangez-le comme une victime et souvenez-vous que c’est là un gage qu’elle a été immolée pour vous. » Ô mon Sauveur ! Pour la troisième fois, quelle netteté, quelle précision, quelle force ? Mais en même temps, quelle autorité et quelle puissance dans vos paroles ! Femme, tu es guérie ; elle est guérie à l’instant.

Ceci est mon corps, c’est son corps. Ceci est mon sang, c’est son sang.

Qui peut parler en cette sorte, sinon celui qui a tout en sa main ? Qui peut se faire croire, sinon celui à qui faire et parler sont la même chose ?

Mon âme, arrête-toi ici ; sans discourir, crois aussi simplement, aussi fortement que ton Sauveur a parlé, avec autant de soumission qu’il fait paraître d’autorité et de puissance. Encore un coup, il veut dans ta foi la même simplicité qu’il a mis dans ses paroles :

Ceci est mon corps, c’est donc son corps. Ceci est mon sang, c’est donc son sang. Dans l’ancienne façon de communier, le prêtre disait : « Le corps de Jésus-Christ », et le fidèle répondait : « Amen », il est ainsi.

Tout était fait, tout était dit, tout était expliqué par ces trois mots. Je me tais, je crois, j’adore ; tout est fait, tout est dit.

Solennité du Corps et du Sang du Christ

VERITABLEMENT, REELLEMENT ET SUBSTANTIELLEMENT PRESENT!


O précieux et admirable festin, porteur de salut et rempli de toute suavité ! Que trouver de plus précieux ? Ce n’est plus la chair des taureaux et des boucs qui nous est présentée en nourriture comme dans l’ancienne loi, mais le Christ, vrai Dieu. Quoi de plus merveilleux que ce sacrement ? En Lui pain et vin sont changés substantiellement en corps et en sang du Christ au point que le Christ, Dieu et Homme parfait, soit contenu sous l’apparence d’un peu de pain et de vin. Alors le Christ est mangé par les fidèles sans être déchiré. Bien plus! après la fraction il demeure entier dans chaque fragment. Les accidents persistent sans leur substance pour donner lieu à la foi, tandis qu’invisiblement on consomme ce qu’on peut voir caché sous une autre apparence. Ainsi les sens, jugeant d’après les accidents qu’ils connaissent, sont à l’abri de l’erreur. Aucun sacrement ne possède plus d’effet salutaire car c’est lui qui remet les péchés, augmente les vertus et comble l’âme de l’abondance de tous les charismes de l’Esprit. On l’offre dans l’Église pour les vivants et les morts. Ainsi profite à tous ce qui a été institué pour le salut de tous.

Âme du Christ, sanctifiez-moi,Corps du Christ, sauvez-moi.Sang du Christ, enivrez-moi,Eau du côté du Christ, lavez-moi.Passion du Christ, fortifiez-moi.O bon Jésus, exaucez-moi.Dans vos blessures, cachez-moi.Ne permettez pas que je sois séparé de vous. De l’ennemi défendez-moi. À ma mort appelez-moi.Ordonnez-moi de venir à vous,Pour qu’avec vos saints je vous loue,Dans les siècles des siècles.Ainsi soit-il. par St.Ignace de Loyola

Jhesu!

Dancing in the rain

My wife Suzanne is making a guest post today. I know that this has been probably passed around the net for a while by was so taken by it, especially, after the long care my mother gave my father it hit home.

How to Dance in the Rain...

..It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80's arrived at the hospital to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.

I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.

While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of alzheimer's Disease. As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late.

He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now. I was surprised, and asked him, 'And you still go every morning, even though she doesn't know who you are?'

He smiled, As he patted my hand and said, 'She doesn't know me, But I still know who she is.' I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought, 'That is the kind of love I want in my life.'

True love is neither Physical, nor romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.

With all the jokes and fun that are in e-mails, sometimes there is one that comes along that has an important message. This one I thought I could share with you. The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; They just make the best Of everything they have. Life isn't about how to survive the storm,
But how to dance in the rain...

Suzanne, is a nurse who works for the N.C. Department of Correction, that is her Charism.

David Letterman

David Letterman is no gentleman.

There was a time when a man would never make a public comment about a woman or her daughter in such a way as Letterman did this week. It is sad that this icon of late night comedy should have to stoop so low as to insult a woman's motherhood and her children. I am reminded of another woman who suffered in a similar way...

The following was written in a left wing newspaper.

Sarah Palin lambasted late-night comedian David Letterman Wednesday for "sexually perverted comments" about one of her teenage daughters - and rebuffed his moves to make nice.

The CBS funnyman joked Monday of Palin's recent New York visit that "during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez."

Palin was incensed.

"Laughter incited by sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity aimed at a 14-year-old girl is ... disgusting," the Alaska governor said in a statement.

The former GOP veep nominee's 14-year-old daughter, Willow, was the only Palin child to attend the game at Yankee Stadium. more


I cannot say that I will boycott Letterman, I don't watch him now. The only thing which will teach these people, these Jacobins, a lession is to be cut off from the national scene.

What is further disturbing to me is that Alex Rodriquez has failed thus far to make any statement supporting the mother hood of Sarah Palin and her 14 year old daughter Willow. letterman has "appologized" if only in his mind. Even if Letterman meant Bristol, this "joke" would still be disgusting.

Saint Marie-Antoinette, pray for us, and especially mothers and daughters.

Sacred Heart Novena

I received this today from America needs Fatima, I am passing this along.

The reader will notice that the Sacred Heart is very dear to me. This is June the month of the Sacred Heart.

June 08, 2009

Dear Richard,

For the next 7 days, you can get a complimentary copy of the Irresistible Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

CLICK here to receive your novena in the mail.

It is called the Irresistible Novena because it is so effective in obtaining graces and favors for those in need.

Actually, Saint Padre Pio used to say it everyday! Today, too many souls are slaves of sin.

Homes are ruled by movies and TV shows. And coffee tables are covered with magazines reporting all the Hollywood gossip and scandal. Instead of sanctuaries, far too many homes are dens of sin.

And so many families don't honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus any more. Our Lord told St. Margaret Mary that from most men He receives only "contempt, irreverence, sacrilege, coldness..."

Yet Our Lord so loved men that He spared nothing, even dying on the Cross for our redemption on the Cross, to save souls.
All this is why I am offering to send you this most powerful novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Please --- pray it with deep faith, so as you and the members of your family pray the novena, I know you will receive many graces.

Go here to receive your novena (no charge).
Your friend in Mary,

Robert E. Ritchie, Executive Director

P.S. Because the enclosed novena is so unique, I hope you will get yours today and pray it with great fervor and faith.

And if you like the work of America Needs Fatima, please consider sending a small tax gift to help me continue fighting the good struggle for Our Lady of Fatima.

Oradour sur-Glane 10 June 1944...

I originally posted this article last year at this time. One of the greatest problems of war is that the memories fade over time and we forget; we must never forget the cost. I will post only this today.
Two events among many from Second World War have become infamous for Nazis atrocitites perpetrated by the SS. Both happened on the same day two years apart. The massare of Lidice in Bohemia, and Oradour sur-Glane. Although Lidice is remembered by the renaming of towns across the world, Oradour-sur-Glane is only remembered by the French and by we too few historians...

Around 2 p.m. on 10 June 1944, four days after the Allied invasion of Normandy, approximately 150 Waffen-SS soldiers entered the tranquil village of Oradour-sur-Glane in the Limosin region of south central France. For no apparent reason, Hitler's elite troops destroyed every building in this peaceful village and brutally murdered a total of 642 innocent men, women and children, an unexplained tragedy which has gone down in history as one of the worst war crimes committed by the German army in World War II.

On that beautiful Summer day, the defenseless inhabitants of Oradour-sur-Glane were rudely dragged out of their homes, including the sick and the elderly, and ordered to assemble on the Fairgrounds on the pretext of checking their identity papers. After all had been assembled, they were forced to wait in suspense with machine guns pointed at them. Then the women were separated from the men and marched a short distance to the small Catholic Church, carrying infants in their arms or pushing them in baby carriages.


The men were then ordered to line up in three rows and face a wall that bordered on the Fairgrounds. A short time later, they were randomly divided into groups and herded into six buildings: barns, garages, a smithy, and a wine storehouse. Around 4 p.m., a loud explosion was heard which was interpreted by the men to be a signal for the SS soldiers to begin firing their machine guns. Most of the men were wounded in the legs and then burned alive when every building in the village was set on fire at around 5 p.m. By some miracle, 6 of the men managed to escape from one of the burning barns and 5 of them survived. They testified in court about this completely unjustified German barbarity against blameless French civilians.

The Oradour church only had a seating capacity of 350 persons, but 245 frightened women and 207 sobbing children were forced inside at gunpoint while the men were still sitting on the grass of the Fairgrounds, awaiting their fate. The women and children were locked inside the church while the SS soldiers systematically looted all the homes in this prosperous farming village. Then around 4 p.m. a couple of SS soldiers carried a gas bomb inside this holy place and set it off, filling the church with a cloud of noxious black smoke. Their intention had been to asphyxiate the women and children in the House of God, but their plan failed.

As the women and children pressed against the doors, trying to escape and struggling to breathe, SS soldiers then entered the crowded, smoke-filled church and fired hundreds of shots at the hapless victims, while other SS men stood outside ready to machine-gun anyone who attempted to escape. The soldiers fired low inside the church in order to hit the small children. Babies in their prams were blown up by hand grenades, filled with gas, that were tossed into the church. Then brushwood and straw was carried into the stone church and piled on top of the writhing bodies of those that were not yet dead. The church was then set on fire, burning alive the women and babies who had only been wounded by the shots and the grenades. The clamour coming from the church could be heard for a distance of two kilometers, according the Bishop's office report.

The fire inside the church was so intense that the flames leaped up into the bell tower; the bronze church bells melted from the heat of the flames and fell down onto the floor of the church. One SS soldier was accidentally killed by falling debris when the roof of the church steeple collapsed.

Only one woman, a 47-year-old grandmother, escaped from the church. Taking advantage of a cloud of smoke, she hid behind the main altar where she found a ladder that had been left there for the purpose of lighting the candles on the altar. Madame Marguerite Rouffanche, the lone survivor of the massacre in the church, managed to escape by using the ladder to climb up to a broken window behind the altar, then leaping out of the window, which was 9 feet from the ground. Although hit by machine gun fire and wounded 4 times in the legs and once in the shoulder, she was able to crawl to the garden behind the presbytery where she hid among the rows of peas until she was rescued, 24 hours later, at 5 p.m. the next day, and taken to the hospital in Limoges where she was admitted under an assumed name. It took a full year for her to recover from her wounds. In 1953, she testified before a French military tribunal in Bordeaux about the massacre of the women and children in the church.

After the war, the village received a citation from the Nation of France, which reads as follows:

"The methodical rounding up, the deliberate massacre of these 700 men, women and children, the systematic destruction of these 328 buildings, is the archetypal example of a French community that suffered under barbarism. A motiveless crime, an unthinking cruelty which did nothing but lift the patriotic fervour of the French people, stiffen their desire for liberation, and add to, if possible, the dishonour of Germany and the disgust it engendered."

The "fateful day" of the massacre was a Saturday. The villagers were looking forward to the Sunday Mass the next day, which was to be the First Communion day for some of the children. As I mentioned in the beginning of this article the 10th of June was also the date of the German destruction of the town of Lidice, two years earlier, in what is now the Czech Republic. At the trial of the perpetrators in 1953, the survivors of Lidice were invited to witness the proceedings, along with the survivors of Oradour-sur-Glane.

Oui, je me souviens...

Le Prince Pedro Luiz d’Orléans Bragance, une biographie courte

Le Prince Pedro Luiz d’Orléans Bragance, une biographie courte, par AntoinedelaTremoille

Mes amis je viens d’écrire une petite biographie du Prince Pierre Louis d’Orléans et Bragance, mais au même temps je voudrai vous dire que nous prierons une messe demain ici à Buenos Aires, pas seulement pour lui, mais pour toutes les victimes de cette catastrophe aérienne, n’importe pas si ils sont brésiliens, françaises, argentins (comme Pablo Dreyfus, un génial historien et politicologue, petit fils d’un héroïque aviateur française de la II Guerre), ou des autres nationalités. Comme quelle religion ils avaient, comme catholique je suis sure que le Bon Dieu l’avais avec Lui dans sa Gloire Eternelle. Mes hommages au Prince comme à toute sa famille dans sa peine, je les accompagne avec mes prières.

Il'est né le 12 janvier 1983 à Rio de Janeiro. Pedro Luiz, Maria, José, Miguel, Rafael, Gabriel, Gonzaga d’Orléans-Bragance, est le fils aîné du prince Antonio d’Orléans-Bragance et de la princesse Christine de Ligne. Son trisaïeul a été M. le Comte d’Eu de la branche orléaniste de la Maison de France, marié a la fille unique de l’Empereur Pierre II de Brésil, de la maison de Bragance, rois de Portugal, puis Empereurs du Brésil jusque l’année 1889 quand la république a été proclamé, sans l’appui de la plupart de la population du pays, qui ont été fideles à l’Empereur qui venais de proclamer la libération des esclaves.

Le Prince Pedro ou Pierre a été le petit-fils du prince Pedro Henrique d’Orléans-Bragance et de la princesse Marie de Bavière du côté paternel et du prince Antoine de Ligne et de la princesse Alix de Luxembourg du côté maternel, il fait partie des victimes du crash aérien du vol d’Air France qui reliait Rio de Janeiro à Paris. Brillant étudiant, il était titulaire d’une maîtrise en entreprises et préparait un diplôme complémentaire à la Fondation Getulio Vargas, la plus prestigieuse du Brésil et l’une des plus réputées dans le monde. Il effectuait d’ailleurs dans le cadre de ses études un stage au sein d’une banque au Grand-Duché de Luxembourg.

Pedro Luiz est l’aîné d’une famille de 4 enfants : Amelia, Rafael et Maria Gabriela. Il était considéré comme le 4 éme héritier au trône du Brésil après ses deux oncles les princes Luiz Gastao et Bertrand ainsi que son père le prince Antonio.


Merci.

AF 447: les premiers corps bientôt identifiés?


Le Post, 6.09.2009

"On attend" nous dit, angoissé, le frère d'un disparu du vol AF 447.

Les proches des disparus vivent un moment particulièrement difficile...

Ce mardi, les 16 premiers corps des victimes du vol AF 447, repêchés en haute mer à environ 1.150 km de la côte brésilienne, ont été rapatriés à bord d'un hélicoptère de l'armée sur l'archipel de Fernando de Noronha, selon Europe 1.

Une fois sur l'archipel, ils vont faire l'objet d'expertises préliminaires d'identification, avant d'être transportés dans les prochains jours sur le continent, à l'Institut médicolégal de Recife, où une morgue a déjà été installée.

Lundi, l'armée brésilienne a rendu publiques les premières photos des débris de l'Airbus Air France.

Et a annoncé, dans la soirée, avoir retrouvé 8 corps supplémentaires.


Toutes mes sincères condoléances à toutes les familles des victimes de l'avion Air France. Que les victimes de cet accident atroce reposent en paix.

Is Culture Religiously Neutral?

Nicholas Wansbutter has posted his thoughts on culture at Durandal.

Is Culture Religiously Neutral?
By N.D.C. Wansbutter, Esq.

In my many interactions with traditionalists and people in general on the internet and in real life, I've come across time and again this assumption that all cultures are essentially equal and also "neutral" as they relate to God. Thus, in the often heated arguments about women wearing slacks, the claim that in parts of Asia traditional garb includes pants for women gets tossed about; or one will find a fellow traditionalist openly expressing his appreciation of certain pagan cultures, or seeing nothing wrong with jeans, hoodies, or other bits of modern culture.

My view is that this is a sort of false oecumenism because, in a word, cultures are neither equal nor religiously neutral. Let us start with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass: no traditionalist would deny that the Traditional Latin Mass is the manner in which the Lord God desires to be worshipped. Yet that Mass has all sorts of cultural elements, and in a way was influenced by, and influenced, the culture around it. Moving beyond just the Mass, European medieval culture specifically, was saturated with the Catholic Faith and said faith deeply influenced it. It is, therefore, objectively superior to other cultures, as are the European cultures which developed out of medieval culture.

Catholic Priests, Martyrs of the Spanish Civil War.

Most Americans remember the Spanish Civil War through films such as "For whom the bell tolls..." by Ernest Hemmingway (I would say his book but no one reads anymore.) and a brief mention in Casablanca, or the paintings of Pablo Picasso or Salvadore Dali.

Left: Spanish Leftists Shoot Statue Of Christ

The Republican side is often lionized as being the democratic side. The truth is a bit different. This "republican" government was socialist, and as any socialist government it must destroy religion.

During the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939, and especially in the early months of the conflict, individual clergymen and entire religious communities were executed with a death toll of 13 bishops, 4172 diocesan priests and seminarists, 2364 monks and friars and 283 nuns, for a total of 6832 victims, as part of what is referred to as Spain's Red Terror. many of these were killed by the lefests for the same reason that Marie-Antoinette was martyred, they did not support the revolution...

Thanks to Joseph at Good Jesuit, Bad Jesuit for inspiring me to reseach this article.

A list of martyrs and photgraphs of the martyred is found here...

May God grant peace those those killed on both sides of this conflict.
