Spread the Outrage. Spread the Truth.
|Tears of Joy or Tears of Shame or Both?|
The United States has been witness to some pomp and circumstance in the past, but nothing like we've seen in the previous week. It was history in the making. It was Fonzi jumping the shark. It was the introduction of PacMan to the Atari 2600 and released upon the sprawling suburbia of early 80's America. It was the all of that, wrapped into the release of Star Wars in May of 1977. It was of course, the visit of his holiness, Pope Francis of the Holy See. Word is, according to his deep web Twitter account that his new album should be dropping in the weeks to come, and for the record from someone close to his holiness he has already negotiated a contract with Richard Branson to get his own, Led Zeppelin sized personal jet; we must admit, the man is a rock star. For many of us that have bore witness and past recollections of Popes from the previous era, never before has there been the common sense of this one that has seemed to openly embrace the times and the ever changing world in which he is living, and for that, we can all say, Amen to that.
He may have come and died for our sins if you believe in that sort of thing and which since that time have piled up in size like the national debt; the least we can do is act like he would have wanted us to. To love our neighbor, not fear them. To feed the hungry, not starve them for lack of employment or money, the color of their skin or the language they speak, and finally instead forgive the debts of those we have imposed debts upon; for we have more than enough in the world, we just have to look at ourselves in the mirror for a long time in order to realize that we are each responsible for making the world a truly wonderful Kingdom of God. Until then, are we going to continue putting up walls?
