A new beginning for people of faith

CONGRATULATIONS to the
Catholic faithful on the selection
of a new Pope.
If the initial indications
are indeed true, then truly,
this must be a new beginning
for people of
faith. Indeed,
I am moved
by the descriptions
of
Pope Francis
as a man
who has denied
himself
of luxuries,
rode the bus
to work and
visited the
slums to
share the message of peace
and humility. How does this
compare to those who have
built empires and now spread
the Word in airplanes, have
security entourages and live
the finest, while bleeding
money from the poor for fake
miracles?
I trust the selflessness and
humility of Pope Francis will
remind people of all faiths of
the true meaning of religion.
Last but not least, those
Catholics who have drifted
away must recognise, before
it’s too late, that faith is not
about miracles, spirit lash,
money and glamour. They
must return to the fold and
seek forgiveness for their disbelieving
ways. Not getting
rich, not being healed, or not
having a faithful spouse does
not mean they should lose
their faith.
