We celebrate Easter with or without a communist pope. The church was built on a rock. His name was Peter. A human. Not bricks and mortar. A human with all the failings of any human.
The message transcends the church. The message is in the Bible. In the hearts of good men.
Evil has found it's way into the Vatican, and yet Easter is less commercial this year and more people are speaking out about Jesus than ever. I have shamefully been like many, and been lax with my religion for many years, falling on it now, in these dark times with increased understanding of it's beauty and truth. That's why evil despises it so much. I am a confirmed catholic, but haven't been a church goer, once out on my own in the world.
If you are having a hard time coping with what's going on, take comfort in the lord, because he welcomes back the lost sheep. Or even the ones that weren't lost, but just to busy with bullshit and too apathetic to answer the call. Thank god for that!!
