POPE'S HOMERUN TO CONGRESS...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

Without getting too political, but attempting to sum up POPE FRANCIS’ MESSAGE BEFORE CONGRESS YESTERDAY, a clear HOMERUN WAS HIT...

DRAWING UPON THE LIVES OF FOUR AMERICANS OF FAITH...ABRAHAM LINCOLN, MARTIN LUTHER KING, DOROTHY DAY, and THOMAS MERTON, the POPE CLEVERLY CRAFTED HIS MESSAGE WHILE WEAVING ONE SEAMLESS CLOTH OF THE TRUTH OF JESUS CHRIST THROUGHOUT HIS SPEECH...

After HITTING A FEW SINGLES to APPEASE THOSE WHO WERE THERE FOR PURELY POLITICAL PURPOSES...i.e., ‘CARE FOR NATURE’ for ‘climate changers’...’TOLERANCE  FOR IMMIGRANTS’ for ‘amnesty obsessors’...’COMMON GOOD’ for ‘socialism advocates’...

BUT THE REAL HOMERUN WAS HIT when HE, REACHING FIRST BASE, ADVOCATED TO PROTECT ALL HUMAN LIFE AT ALL STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT, ROUNDING SECOND, stressed JOB CREATION to solve economic issues, and APPROACHING THIRD, raised the issue of RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FOR ALL, even though RELIGION around the globe has often been misused to justify war and violence...THEN...

CROSSING HOME...THE POPE drove ‘home’ the case for PRESERVING AND STRENGTHENING ‘THE FAMILY’ as THE MOST BASIC AND IMPORTANT OF ALL SOCIAL, POLITICAL, AND ECONOMIC NEEDS...!!!

There will undoubtedly be innumerable attempts at PARSING THE POPE’S WORDS for individual gain over the next few weeks, but in the end a clear and careful reading of his message will reveal his truly heartfelt intentions...!!!

AS FOR ME, I saw no FOUL BALLS, and certainly NO ONE WAS ‘HIT BY THE PITCHER’...BUT...

There will always be those who ‘HEAR WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR’...as with any other message, but THOSE WHO HEARD WHAT GOD IS SAYING TO THEM THROUGH THE POPE will be uplifted, encouraged, and blessed by the POPE’S MESSAGE...!!! A PROPHET IN OUR TIME FOR ALL OF GOOD WILL...!!!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND PRAY FOR UNITY IN THE BODY OF CHRIST...!!!

"There will undoubtedly be innumerable attempts at PARSING THE POPE’S WORDS for individual gain..." I find it interesting in what you thought were "singles" vs. "home runs. 

While there was a veneer of religiosity, the speech was political in almost every aspect...and outside of abortion and marriage, it certainly leaned left.

Karl,

Don't read too much into the singles vs homerun aspect of my post...I was merely trying to emphasize the Pope's talk was a success...!!!

If the Pope's talk was 'left' leaning it was probably due to his sciatic condition...!!!

BTW, The Pope was speaking primarily as head of state of The Vatican, and not attempting to present Catholic Doctrine...!!! I thought it was revealing when he addressed the crowd outside and asked even those 'non believers' to at least wish him well...!!!

Thanks,   Fran

Not one mention of God in his speech to Congress I think he could have done more and I dont believe he even ask anyone to pray.

Charles,

Cut him a break...If people don'tknow by now that he represents The Lord...they won't get it even if he mentions God by name...!!! Remember, he was speaking to career politicians for the most part...!!!

Thanks,   Fran
