Message of Hope
     I would like to share with you a reflection that I wrote down after Pope John 11's visit to Baltimore in 1995. My wife and I were lucky enough to attend his Mass at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. A true highlight of our lives. This reflection seems to be just as relevant today as it was when I wrote it down in 1995.

     " Yesterday the Holy Father left the United States to return to the Vatican. I am still feeling charged up from his visit. If I had to give his message a title it would be "A Message of Hope".

     The "culture of death" has brought nothing but the gloom and doom message to the world. No hope is the mantra of so many people. If our society says it is permissible to kill the unborn, the sick and the elderly,how can there be hope for any of us.

The young people must feel very lucky to have been born when they read that we have killed about 50,000,000 (1995) babies since the Roe vs Wade decision.(Jan. 22, 1973) The elderly must feel great anxiety in the thought that someone might decide to kill them under the guise of misguided compassion. 

That's why the Pope's message was so uplifting. He talked of real love and hope. Not the perverted meaning of love that our society has developed: love equals sex-sex equals love. He spoke of the love that starts with God's love for us and our passing that love onto our neighbors and the hope we have of joining in His love forever."

That is the end of what I wrote down at that time and I'm sure there is much more that could be said. However, it is enough to think about when we reflect on our present times. After reading and listing to the news, I think a little Love and Hope could help a lot.  

Love and Hope,
Jimemac
