The Church's Angry Children

Share this Entry

A response to: Confirmation Commitment

Those who are maligning His Holiness are like “angry children.” When they are not given to do their “own thing” which is damaging to their bodies and souls, they get angry and lash out. Pope Benedict has rightly pointed out many gaps and pits in the living out of life and faith and those affected do not like it, so they find excuses to hide behind instead of reflecting and changing. What is the use of talking about the “earth” and trying to save it when humans, products of the environment, have destroyed the fabric of society by their way of living.

Here is where right minded Christians need to stand up and witness by not following the “crowd.” Christians are called and challenged to be witnesses, not just talking but being role models in the society. Christians also have a duty to support the Holy Father and the Church in this crisis and speak out, even one to one.

Let us remember Christ’s words: “I am with you till the end of time” … this gives us strength and hope.
