Tip Of The Ice Burg: Options & Suggestions

March 6, 2019

Thought this would be better to script this tomorrow, while my son is at dialysis though it is quiet now & while sipping a cup of hot tea as it is snowing & harsh winds are abound: its a window of opportunity.
Let me first say that it was nerve raking yesterday blogging this disturbing subject. So doing a couple of misspellings is reasonable. I’m a bit calmer momentarily. So continuing while updating, there was a Catholic priest arrested yesterday in Philadelphia. Not a human being on earth has the right to prejudge another without evidence. So hopefully this priest will be indicted & the law will take its course. There are options & suggestions that would not stop this from occurring in the future. However these would hopefully bring the fallen Catholics back. Bring the Roman Catholic Church more in tune with other Christian & other beliefs. Pope Francis who is an innovator, would make a declaration that priests have the option to marry. After all the early popes were married. Another suggestion would be the women have the right to celebrate Mass as the priests do. Also have nuns give the Holy Eucharist to the congregations. It would bring women more attune with the Church.
I still pray to Jesus & to the Blessed Virgin Mary. I find comfort in this. Human beings need an inner strength in religion, regardless of which one it is: especially when things are difficult. So hopefully Pope Francis will have the presence of mind to do the logical & reasonable thing, or maybe do something similar to this. It can never erase the deeds of those priests or nuns.

Tip Of The Ice Burg

March 5, 2019

This matter is shocking & most difficult to express. As I’m a Roman Catholic, though don’t attend the sacrificial Mass which gives me great solace, comfort and belief. Haven’t gone for a number of years, maybe just a handful of times.
Years ago when I was married, I didn’t go for the reason of alleged abuse of children. Now with Pope Francis at the reign unfortunately these allegations are true. What makes it worse is that it started in the 1940’s: furthermore it involved Nuns & not just priests. What is more unnerving is that nuns were abused by priests. Calling these nuns sex slaves which the thought of that makes stomach tumbles, more so scripting this is shameful. What is sad is that these abused nuns turned to items which attempted them to forget& some of them turned to suicide. The more I read & research this subject I find items which are too disturbing. For instance the coverup the complicity of others, which keeps the secrets hidden. Thankfully Pope Francis has addressed this tragedy. Read that a Cardinal won’t give name for the fact of recognition: was indicted and could spend a number of years behind bars. The Federal Government is looking into allegations in a number of states including Pa. which initialized the start. The Vatican has their own courts, jails & other judicial system. In all religions: it has its issues. Never expected to be in the R.C. This isn’t just in the United States it worldwide. I feel disappointed. I still pray to the Virgen Mary, & I know Pope Francis has made a positive difference. Does this sound like I’m confessing!? I do know that all aren’t horrendous, though only not even a few but many! This is an education so let’s look at it in that way!
