I know it's a CT site but is anyone else interested in the Pope's visit?

I am neither religious nor a Catholic (recovering or otherwise) and I am surprised at how interested I am in this visit. I hope all goes well.

I will add that I'm sad (to put it mildly) that he has chosen to follow the path of a political figure rather than a spiritual one.


He is more than a spiritual leader. He is also a Head of State. This is actually a state visit. And, as he has proven, he can be both. Besides, caring for the poor, caring for the Earth, loving our neighbors as we do ourselves, world peace and forgiveness are all spiritual concerns. It's the politicians who have co-opted these issues and turned them into political game pieces.

kosmicjack, that is also my favorite prayer.

Wow. The Pope's comments are very pointed thus far. When available, I'll link it here.

- reminding of our founding principles
- support for institution of marriage
- no tolerance for discrimination

Those last two should be a difficult dance together.

Eta:

- climate change (quoted MLK on that?)
-protect the vulnerable

Can you imagine...Can you imagine... when he goes before congress and the world, 1 billion people watching.......he has the mic....

Pope: 'It is time the world knew the truth, we have not just discovered, but made contact with life beyond ear..."

I think the conspiracy angle here is that Jim Bowen and the Pope have never been seen together so I think they are the same person

I have been watching the whole time praying something like that doesn't happen. It's actually wrecked my nerves lol. Logically I know everyone has been cleared, searched, patted down, etc. but I am still nervous about it and I'm not sure why. I almost wish he'd hurry up and leave the states all together.

I know everyone has been cleared, searched, patted down

Indeed, most likely by the same agency that activates the "asset" to set up and remain on target until the he says the trigger word........then...

LOL - only joking, but c'mon, you and KJ have to admit, it's crossed both your minds, and why - .

After all, if it can happen to JFK.....

10 ways Pope Francis challenges us


Why does Pope Francis stir respect, even love, in the hearts of millions, including non-Catholics? Like other Christians, I look to Francis for spiritual leadership. Here are 10 reasons why so many of us admire this pontiff, and why his examples set a moral challenge for us on many fronts.

1. Humility is a virtue
2. Climate change is real
3. Commitment to the poor
4. Capitalism on trial
5. Gays in the church
6. Women are equal
7. Reaching out to Islam
8. Accepting science as valid
9. A global vision
10. Everybody's pope


Naturally there is an explanation for each of those.

He genuinely tries to reconcile traditional Christian doctrine/Jesus's teachings with modern issues. That's very brave in such a politically fractured and spiritually numb 2015.

When this one dies I hope another is brought in to continue attempting to bring it into the present and not one who takes it back years.

On that note....

I thought he was a good bit more vital when his Papacy began a few ago?
Like didn't they say he played tennis a lot? It seems now it's a bit of an effort to walk.

he can be both.

I'll just say you can't serve two masters and leave it at that.

Not that I follow the bible, but I think Jesus contradicts that.

Mark 12 :17


And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.

I've said on several different occasions that Francis became the pope a little too late for me, but if I was still a Catholic I'd be ecstatic about him. One of the reasons I left the faith was because I lost faith in the Catholic leadership, including the pope.

I don't think that shows a contradiction, but everyone is entitled to their own interpretation.

Also (and please understand I'm not trying to be dismissive of you or anyone else's thoughts/views/opinions), I'm simply not looking to debate anyone about scripture or faith.
