This isn’t meant to be a post about religion or faith. You can read TD thoughts on his faith in his most awesome post. My response to the judgers is “Some like it hot”…*owned but TD stole it and I’m too tired to chase him down.* I tend to avoid churches except for the psalm 22 week and Good Friday. I end up a disaster after each attendance. I respect everyone’s idea of faith.
When I was 3, I ran around the house with a towel over my hair I would yell “Look ma, I’m a nun!”. I even went as one that year for Halloween. I don’t know if a 3-year-old knows the concept of irony but that comes pretty close. The next year and every year thereafter, I went as something scary. The world once again became in balance…digression.
This week the Pope resigned. The first time this has happened in 600 years. I’ve heard a number of opinions. He should have died first (um ok?)….God chose him so he shouldn’t have resigned (um ok?)…He looks old, decrepit and unhealthy…good for him (um ok). I don’t know the protocol on how things work. From what I understand, he is elected by the College of Cardinals. That makes it a popularity contest, not a Divine proclamation. It would be funny to see God whispering in one cardinal’s ear “he’s the one”…then moving around the room and whispering in another “no, he is”.
My aunt has been dreading this moment. She says the next Pope will not be a real one and will help usher in the End Times. She called me and implored me to go to church. A friend of mine is freaking out…the event that somewhat gave me chills was the fact that the Vatican was hit by lightning. Not sure how often this happens or if I should be scared. What to do what to dooo?
And my question to you all is what are your thoughts, if any on this event? Is the world coming to an end yet again?
