We have our rock !
We loved our sainted John Paul ; but we remained afraid despite his reassurances that all would be well...even though the world was collapsing around us.
He was right ! and we were wrong not to believe his words of comfort....
Papa Benedict has brought a hope we never thought possible...
with faith we can move mountains ; with hope we can move the world !!!
How ? as always with the Love we never truly lost ; in the past we were merely too frightened to love - But our Holy Father compels us towards being and doing that which we were called to be and do. It's like he's saying 'we're not afraid any more - try your best shot!'
The fight back begins again - for even if we perish in the impending onslaught - we will die and rise again - we cannot possibly lose !
