The Church and Crisis
The Church in crisis.
Despite the fact that we've been in similar situations in the Church's history it is easy to forget that the Catholic Church is founded upon huge crisis.
What greater example can there be than the Lord and Founder of this Divine Institution being nailed to the Cross and bleeding until dead while the Apostles run for the hills for fear, deny Him, forsake Him, betray Him.
Our God is a God Who brings good out of every evil. The power of love, the power of Christ is stronger than death, human weakness and evil. Pope Benedict XVI knows this. Let us follow the Holy Father's deep and profound trust in the Lord.
"Let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ.” ~ Pope Benedict XVI
If only we would all trust Him as much as does our beloved Holy Father! Perpetual crisis in the Church should encourage us all to pray. God will never abandon His Church. He is with His Church, however besmirched She is by sin, confusion and misunderstanding, until the End of Time.
