Servitude / Dayami Pestano #Cuba

dayaBy Dayami Pestano

The real Law of servitude is the tax imposed on a property for the benefit of another belonging to a different owner.

This legality virtually disappeared from our legal and social landscape, including legislation, practically by force and was cast into oblivion by the eagerness to discard in a moment everything that smacked of bourgeoisie as one more taboo of the socialist revolutionary process in Cuba.

Today reality has demonstrated that in the matter of the Real law, although not everything is written down and now everything is invented.

Today the actual law is indeed that in terms of real right but not everything is written down but it is all invented.

The Cuban Civil Code Articles 170 to 177 address the limitations regarding property derived from relations of proximity, leaving easements not dealt with, the first not technically equivalent to the second, although in some cases they are related.  This leaves out of its scope conflicts that could arise and leaves other possible situations against third parties unprotected.

This failure gives you low technical quality of the legal rule in question and low functionality, causing everything to not meet the ultimate goal for which it was created because it does not give the legal system the ability to provide the security that implies respect for those who are its recipients.

A Christmas Prayer Request / Mario Lleonart

Ulysses Jesus just days ago, December 9th, with my girl Rachel.

For some, Christmas is synonymous  only with feasts and gifts. But its origin was the incarnation of God who in the words of Philippians 2 “emptied himself to dwell among us, shoveling away our suffering, and grew to receive death as a ransom for all mankind.”

Therefore we can say that Christmas is meant more to be among those who suffer rather than just parties and gifts.  Right now in the Hospital of Santa Clara, a five-year-old boy named Ulises Jesus Vázquez Sánchez is hovering between life and death, a victim of meningitis. Hopefully, in the midst of our celebrations we can pause to raise our intercessions to God for healing this crying child.

His mom, Yamila Sanchez, with the child has the landline +5342270695.  Ulises Vázquez and his father are waiting on his cell phone +5353769762 and God is fully open to hear our cry and to answer.

Just days ago, on December 9 Ulysses Jesus was a perfectly happy child.  In the picture you can see him with my four-year-old girl Rachel having fun at a carnival of amusements which was placed right in front of our temple.  We pray to God that a scene like this can once again be a reality in his life.

God grant us the miracle of returning to us this other Jesus this Christmas!  Through Christ, Amen.
