An interesting piece by “Huguccio Della Chiesa” found it’s way into my inbox. Whilst it may not be everybody’s cup of tea it provides food for thought. Do check out the price tag on pg15. ! The article begins . . .
"Its not easy being a pillar of the Church and a successor of an apostle. The exalted role of the bishop must reflect the majesty and power of the Almighty and Supreme God who is much like an absentee Emperor who has left his properties in the care mere earthlings.
Since these “mere earthlings” are the earthbound stand-ins for the Invisible and Omnipotent Deity while HE is away in some other universe taking care of business, it stands to reason they must look the part. All this talk about the Church being a community or a people of God is heretical poppycock. The Church Triumphant is a Majestic Kingdom. Jesus was the supreme King. He just never showed up in Jerusalem or its environs in his king suit."
Have a look at the whole article here AND there’s lots of luvverly pictures, if that's your sort of thing. I think you can tell where my thoughts lie . . .
