COVID Notice

TRANSCEND News, 12 Dec 2022

Antonio C. S. Rosa | Editor – TRANSCEND Media Service

12 Dec 2022 – Dear Readers, Friends, Supporters, this is the first time that TMS fails to be updated since its inception on 3 Mar 2008. The reason: I have been infected with COVID and bedridden still without prognosis; my very first bout with the condition.

The real incapacitating factor, according to a doctor, is that all the muscle pain that accompanies the condition concentrated solely on my back (I have scoliosis). Powerful opioid painkillers are needed to bring some short-term relief. Working has been out of the question. Reminder: I shall be 77 next February.

The Editorial, TRANSCEND Videos and Research Paper will appear by default. The rest of the materials submitted by writers will be published next week—hopefully!

This note is meant as an explanation and an apology. I just hope things go back to normal ASAP. Please bear with us through yet another challenge.

The TMS Team feels deeply grateful for your unconditional support thorough the years. We shall prevail! God bless.

Antonio Rosa

    Dear Professor Antonio Rosa
    Greetings from Durban. We are indeed so sorry to hear that the inimitable Professor Rosa is ill disposed this week. We pray to the good Lord to grant His servant and that of the entire humanity, Professor Rosa, an expedient recovery from the global illness. We further beseech the Lord to grant Professor Rosa relief from his intractable pain and relieve the temporary incapacitation with His Divine cure so that Professor Rosa can continue his excellent and ongoing efforts in propagating and ensuring that humanoids do not repeat the mistakes of the past in inflicting further suffering on fellow humankind.
    My wife and I pray that Professor Rosa will be well soon and be fully active once again. We both feel that the Lord has given you this Covid illness, as a measure, to allow Professor Rosa to rest, recover and be fully recharged for the Christmas and 2023. It is the Lord’s mechanism to grant Professor Rosa a respite from the frantic, weekly editing, production as well as publishing the TMS Peace Journal, since 2008, indeed an inordinate period of relentless activity in the pursuit of spreading the gospel and message of peace, globally. Professor Rosa deserves this biological period of rest by Divine providence to rejuvenate
    God Bless

    Sincere good wishes to you Antonio. I am in France and am fed up with the whole covid-19 affair!!!! I am lucky not to have had it at all and feel sad that you have been hit with it.One point I hate is the emphasis on vaccines (for the rich countries of course) and the lack of attention for those countries that cannot afford the vaccines and who struggle on with natural immunity eg in Africa. Profit-making (with the help of the European Commission underhand tricks with Pfizer) has had a very big impact .

  7. Dear Antonio,
    Having only recently recovered from a severe case of whatever it is — Covid or a horrible annual flu — and still left with a dry hacking cough after 2-1/2 months, I commiserate with you and your current illness. I sincerely hope that much rest, and more rest, and more rest, along with your regular healthy lifestyle, drinking lots of fluids, will help to bring you a quick recovery. You must listen to your body and not push yourself beyond limits. While we all appreciate TMS Weekly articles (and I definitely do), we appreciate you and the work you do far more. So take it easy and we’ll look forward to when you can return. All the Best!

    My dear Professor, TMS has provided much inspiration for the Thai nonviolence movement, under military dictatorship since 2014 with no end in sight. Thank you.

    Don’t need to push yourself. We’ll be waiting.

    Wishing you a complete & speedy recovery.
