Our Pope Rocks!!
I love the fact that the Pope "tweets". I myself don't really get tweeting...but our Pope...OUR POPE!!!! He tweets. He tweets things that stay in my heart during the day.
I have read a few of his homilies and just recently the first few pages of his new, and first, encyclical, Lumen Fidie. He writes in such a real manor. Anyone can identify with what he says. It is exciting. He inspires with every word and thought. His love for our Lord is saturating his words and you just feel it.
Lumen Fidie, the first few pages at least, talks about God being light...true light. When you have God's light it brings life to all places in your soul. All day I have been thinking about how true this is. When I am focused on God's light it is much easier to ...talk patiently to the active 4 year old....smile at the ...I'm going to be late phone call. It is when I am not focused on God or allowing Him to be part of the "darker" moments that I don't make the choices I know I NEED to be making.
What a gift. Our faith. Our Pope. Our loving God.
