Yesterday, I found myself in a very awkward situation.
Having got to the office in my car in the morning, I wasn’t aware that the Pope would make his city tour right along the street where my job is. When I had to leave, I realized I wasn’t allowed to, however it would only take a few minutes, until the delegation passed.
During those minutes, without any purpose and with all respect to all people who gathered there to show their affection and devotion to Mr. Joseph Razinger, a question started to take shape in my mind.
Considering the power that Vatican City and Catholic religion have (as well as any other church/religion), the “marketing” deployed for the event, and the evidence of hierarchy he represents, I couldn’t avoid asking myself:
“Would this man be someone Jesus Christ would approach? Was this the kind of Institution Jesus was thinking of, when founded his Church through Peter?”
I feared the answer.
