The spirit of Jesus

What a wonderful pope!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...istine-chapel/


One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

Good for him.

I don't get the issue about public breast feeding... that is as long as there is some modesty used when doing it.

What it boils down to is that no matter what a person does, there will be someone who is offended.

That's not a very nice thing to say.

I have breastfed 3 children in "public places" without being blatant about it. I don't need a Catholic pope (who by the way has never been a mother who needs breasts to feed a baby) to give me approval or disapproval. He can take his opinion and shove it where the sun don't shine for all I care. If there is a God, guarantee he does not reside with these hypocrites.

Perhaps, but it's the truth. No matter what anyone does or says, someone in the world will find offense. It's a fact. Would you rather have everyone hide behind rituals and robes and Catholic pomp and circumstance and other nonsense and crap as opposed to actually admitting the truth? Oh, and while they attempt to hide all their members' sexual misconduct and abuse of young children?

I never held you, but I feel you. You never spoke, but I hear you. I never knew you, but I love you.

From the movie "Orphan". For all parents of a stillborn child or one who died shortly after birth. The pain never goes away. Ever.

My comment was 100% meant to be a joke. That's why I ended it the wink.

Yes, I agree that too many people are too thin skinned.

Re: The spirit of Jesus

I'm not a religious person. I was born and raised Methodist, but I gave it up a long time ago. But I like this pope. He's very progressive, which I think is awesome.
