One of the best things the Pope ever said:
Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence.
One of the worst things the Pope ever said:
Allowing children to be adopted by persons living in such [same-sex] unions would actually mean doing violence to these children, in the sense that their condition of dependency would be used to place them in an environment that is not conducive to their full human development. This is gravely immoral.
I told a guy at the cafe today that I want to go like the Pope – I want to have lived so fully and done so much that I am left a burnt out husk that is ready for traveling to the next land. I want to have impacted those around me in fundamental and profound ways.
Wonder who is next for the deathwatch parade, eh?
