All Pope, all the timeI was still here at the office last night when news broke that a new pope had been chosen. Since I was already here, I ended up with the task to produce the story on the website, and by 1:00 AM last night we had already broken the story.
some say they know cardinal ratzinger but they really don't know him. personally, i think that our new pope, benedictum xvi, will follow the example of his namesake predecessor, benedictum xv. benedict xv is a diplomat, sinasabi ngang he's nuts since he preached peace when the world is at war (world war i). by choosing that name, our new pope hope to reconcile with the world, at the same time, be faithful to the teachings of our Lord.
for filipino catholics, many of them have faith but don't have works, i.e. equally sharing their lots, wealth, time, etc. sabi nga sa james 2:26, faith without works is dead. puro sila hingi ng hingi, 'di naman marunong magbigay, kahit oras nila.
Pope BenedictXVI may not look as gentle as Pope John Paul II, but he is the shepherd now and his goal is to lead the flock towards the light and save them from the wickedness of humanity, and no, I do not believe that liberalism and conservatism can come together. What the Church teaches, it practices, save for a few.And the morals have the free will.
