"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Is the Pope Catholic? Yes. He. Is.



Is he the successor of Peter and Benedict XVI?  Yes.  He.  Is.

"The design of the Creator is written in nature."

VATICAN CITY
Pope Francis has strongly criticized modern theories that consider people's gender identities to exist along a spectrum, saying such theories do not "recognize the order of creation." 
Speaking of gender theory in an interview in a new book released in Italy, the pope even compares such theories to genetic manipulation and nuclear weapons. 
(H)e then says that every historical period has "Herods" that "destroy, that plot designs of death, that disfigure the face of man and woman, destroying creation." 
"Let's think of the nuclear arms, of the possibility to annihilate in a few instants a very high number of human beings," he continues. "Let's think also of genetic manipulation, of the manipulation of life, or of the gender theory, that does not recognize the order of creation." 
"With this attitude, man commits a new sin, that against God the Creator," the pope says. 
"The true custody of creation does not have anything to do with the ideologies that consider man like an accident, like a problem to eliminate." 
"God has placed man and woman and the summit of creation and has entrusted them with the earth," Francis says. "The design of the Creator is written in nature." - NCR

Works for me!

  1. The Creator's design is sheer beauty, perfection, wonderful to behold. I bet if we could see what our Lord God see, well, we would die...struck by the overwhelming beauty of creation.

    I'm on Pope Francis's team right next to you, Terry!

    Viva il Papa!
