If Saint Peter were here today I’m certain he would be ashamed of what’s going on in his church. I’m also certain he would be handing out pink slips to all those who were complicit in these crimes against children of the Church.
The hypocrisy and arrogance is unprecedented. This is an organization that has taken the act of “brotherly love” to new levels that has inflicted severe physical, psychological and spiritual pain on countless souls throughout the world.
They say timing is everything. On Feb. 11, 2013, Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation, making him the first pontiff in 600 years to do so. Hours after the shocking announcement, lighting struck St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican.
Worldwide, lightning strikes about eight million times per day, on average — that's about 100 times per second. Most of these strikes, however, are cloud-to-cloud strikes; only about 25 percent of lightning strikes are cloud-to-ground strikes.
Just a coincidence?
