Not really. I’ve been attracted to Catholic Christianity since discovering G. K. Chesterton (my hero, since he was fat and smoked cigars).
Still have a few reservations. The greatest comes from listening to Pope John Paul pray with representatives of other religions, including shamanist healers from Africa. That still bothers me, and I haven’t heard one decent explanation from Catholics I’ve asked.
But, it is pleasant to forget things that divide Christians and focus on things which unite us.May 22, 2004 at 5:26 pm #2914
Welcome Elkabong! It’s nice to have people with some differing views on htis website.
You know, I haven’t had much of a chance to read in any detail G. K. Chesterton but I look forward to doing so. I own his book [i:2n0f6d5c]Orthodoxy[/i:2n0f6d5c]. Some of the excerpts I have read are very, very good.
As far as the praying goes, I am not sure to what extent JPII prayed or how he prayed ar what exactly was going on. If there is some more in-depth information about and the intention of the event I would love to read more.
You seem to have a great sense of humor and that is always a very pleasant thing to have. ” title=”Smile” /> Welcome to the board and I hope you stick around (despite how slow it is).
