Good question. All candidates who are proposed now are above 70 years old!!! They are old so the more they should pay attention on young people. Next Youth Meeting will be in Koln(Germany). Last was in Canada ( I didn't participate - lack of money - first thing and second - I wasn't interested in spending 2 weeks in ...don't remember - one big city there). Rome is Rome - history, tradition, relics and Canada ...all big cities there must look the same as it seemed to me. All these airplanes - awful. Interesting what will be this year - I am not so young but Koln is close to me. Besides a big cathedral there.
My brother was working there two years ago but too weak to be enchanted with visiting any Cathedral. When comming back he only stated:
- F...k thing to be a catholic in Germany! Do you know how much more you must pay for admitting this fact when filling forms there?!? Am I a prince or who to pay such taxes for being a catholic!
As you can see culture has many faces around the world.
Today we have a Sunday of God's Mercy upon people.
One Polish saint nun was proclaiming this fest some time ago (Faustyna Kowalska was her name) and Polish Pope died yesterday. Maybe anyone is interested? She died at 33 because of tuberculosis. Some people still die because of this awful disease. I think that it's good to watch so many news about good death because of Pope's death. I mean - no violence, atrocious crimes, senseless bloodshed - just good man went into eternity. Cause we catholics believe people live for ever thanls to Jesus Christ. I only wonder why so little info about the attempt of killing our Pope by terrorists many years earlier.
Besides - maybe you read his state was hopeless and he suffered very much that's why - like Vatican's doctors stated - noone tried to make his suffering longer when unecessary.
BUT Pope was 84, lot of health problems for a long time, blood infection was unable to control. A matter of making his life longer with a day, two days.
In case of Terri - she could live for ten years more still as it seems to me cause as I read 2-4 years ago first trials of disconnecting her from her feeding tube (for 5 days then).
So remember - beware of Jews in your US who will swallow you one day as a strong animal kills a weak one. And have a fear
about what's God's Mercy because once I was reading a book when Hitler time and again was considering himself "Man of God's Mercy" (in his speeches) and then I started to be scared of...God's Mercy (whatever it means).
