Like Catholics all over the world I was shocked to hear on the morning news as I was walking my Benji about the Pope resigning because he says at 85 he is getting old. I know I will be accused of being a horrible Catholic again, but I don’t buy that. To me it is just a cover story and the real reasons are not being told.
On facebook, on one of my friends wall, another Catholic and I are discussing this. She feels that the POPE only answers to GOD and we as people within the church have no right to demand the truth be told to us by our shephard. I told her I disagreed, and that I felt that having this mindset that any clergy all the way up to the POPE is of God and not to be question by the people of the church is part of the reason that child sexual abuse was allowed to go on and be covered up for so long. That to blindly follow a LEADER is a deadly mistake. Haven’t we learned our lesson?
I also pointed out that Jesus never told us to blindly follow Leaders. He said we were to judge them by their fruit. To me HONESTY is part of the FRUIT I am to judge on.
There won’t be any fight on my friends wall, because I said what I had to say and I won’t respond anymore. I have grown as a person since I started the therapy for my PTSD. Before I would fight back until I got the last word. I don’t do that anymore. Now if they want the last word they can have it.
Not going to coping group this morning as I have a root canal that is being done.
Wed. I start the enpowerment group too. So I will be doing three groups in one week. I want to get healthy and overcome the PTSD, so I can move forward and embrace a much better future. We all have a destiny and I would like to find mine and start living it.
start the day with a little Van Morrison.
Have a great day.
