I support the Pope!

With the suble (yet constant) attacks on the Holy Father–for nearly anything and everything it’s beginning to seem– I thought it necessary to remind the world (ha, as if my readership extends that far!) that not everyone finds fault with the Pope. I don’t. I see the big picture. I see where the Holy Father is leading us, and I’m right behind him. I support the Pope. Viva il Papa!

Be Fair to the Pope

The Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI has been getting a lot of heat from the press (and from high ranking Jewish officials) regarding his decision to lift the excommunication of some SSPX (Society of St. Pius X) bishops, one of whom made public comments denying the Holocaust. The Holocaust, however terrible, is not a matter of Catholic faith. The lifting of the excommunications had NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO with Bishop Williamson’s comments about the Holocaust, but regarded matters pertaining to the Catholic faith. The Pope already distanced himself from the Bishop’s comments regarding the Holocaust, and reiterated that the Bishop’s comments are completely UNRELATED to the lifting of the excommunication. End of story.

Elie Wiesel, the chief Rabbinate, etc. need to step back and examine the facts… they are attacking the Pope without justification (and making a bad name for themselves in the process). The Church has done a great deal in her relation with the Jews and has been more than fair to them… so, be fair to the Pope!
