Some Inspiration From A Creative Reformer Of The Past
Sometimes it's easy to get lost in the frustration, anger, and pain generated by some so called 'leaders' in Roman Catholicism. A person can lose site of the real reason Catholicism even exists, which was not to control sexual behavior, but to inspire the spiritual search. It seems when ever I am reaching my explode point I get sent a message to remind me what it's all about.
This morning I open my email to find that a friend had sent me this link for the Vatican's multi media presentation of the Sistine Chapel. Hold down the left mouse button to change perspectives and get a virtual 360 degree tour. In the bottom left hand corner is the enlarge function. An a cappella choir sings in the background, so it's very easy to get mentally lost while perusing Michelangelo's monumental project. All I can say is 'wow' and I hope you enjoy this as much as I have. It helped remind me that this current call for Vatican reform is not novel. It's been going on for millenia and is very traditional.
