With the new pope comes change and a time to reflect on where we as a society now stand before the eyes of God.
Pope John Paul II worked hard as a "bridge builder" to embrace and pull all of those into the fold who believed in God. With his death, thus his work ends and change and hope begin to take form with the election of Pope Benedict XVI.
With the new pope comes change and a time to reflect on where we as a society now stand before the eyes of God. And my, how society has changed from 1978.
In the name of tolerance, diversity and political correctness we have drifted away from God and embraced moral relativism. In our arrogance, we as a society have by "secular edict" decreed that sin no longer exists and moral precepts are unfounded. In complete defiance of the laws of nature and of God we have chosen to live our lives as we see fit and by "choice" - not by what is right and what is wrong.
With the election of the new pope the time has come to end our tolerance of of moral relativism, to close ranks, seek forgiveness for our sins and unite against the evil within our midst.
With God's blessing hopefully we can reflect on the election of Pope Benedict XVI and the significance of his chosen name.
