Two days ago, the Pontiff said "the confessors should not hesitate to referring their penitents to exorcists if they suspect demonic activity at work only after psychological counsel". It is the very suitable preach in the midst of Lent. I'm a scientist inside a governmental institute, though I am not against the existence of some supernatural situations or events on the glove as a christian. It might come from my experiences as a lawyer before courts and on streets. Not a small number of cases that I have experienced include very difficult situations I could not understand: why does this guy commit such that crazy deed by his or her hands? I cannot exclude supernatural existence from reasons behind such strange cases through my experiences.
Confession is not a work of psychological counseling but the mysterium in the power of divinity or blessings by Christ Jesus. Today many priests are confused on that importance and meanings of the mysterium, that is the power of "faith" in God. Confession is the evangelical sacrament in the Church, but priests in the contemporary church look very much awkward to that sacarament. Why? Because they don't want to be invloved in spiritual matters, though they have been ordained in the sacrament or blessing by God. Congession is the only arms to battle against the Enemy of God. This season is the Lent. All in the Church should reconsider that meanings.

I've finally found a person, who still has a Camellia japonica - 'Kouya-Komachi' in Tokyo. He first got the camellia almost ten years or more before. His gardening shop is full of Camellia japonica, most of which are really rare in these days. I bought and brought that Camellia back home. I put it in my east yard. He told me two more species that he recently got from original Camellia japonica, one of which is white one named 'Shirayuki' from Niigata and the other is red one named 'Mantoku-ji' comes from Fukui. Among those two the former 'Shirayuki', a white camellia, is really rare. I was really lucky to see it.
This morning, I found a sprout of "Arisaema sikokianum" - 'Yukimochi' in my east yard. Spring comes close to my yards step by step.

I removed two photos of a Japanese camellia of the gate page from my homepage. It is the photo of the Camellia japonica - 'Kouya-Komachi', that I recently found not the original species. I am looking for that species again around the east and the central Japan.
Yesterday I found the Camellia japonica - 'Izumo-Taish Aka-Yabu' bloomed in my east yard. Its red color is quite close to that 'Kouya-Komachi', though they are different species.
Many plants in my yards have sprouts, and prepare for the coming spring. I'm excited to see their flowers this year again.

The Camellia japonica - red lilly, 'Yuri' in Japanese, is opening its bulb in the east yard of my garden. It takes much more time to bloom this year. Another species of Camellia pink - 'Akebono' has blossomed, and it looks somehow shrinked rather than always. This winter is really severe to Camellia.

I found a white flower of the original species of Camellia japonica - 'Shiro Yabu' opened under the blue sky in this morning. Two more bulbs of the Camellia wait for blooming this year. Today is the last day off of this new year holidays. I'm happy to enjoy this gift from God all day.
