Though we are not Catholic, Walks In Spirit and I wish to note the announcement of the new Pope, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany, Pope Benedict XVI. As the third millennium approaches we are eager to be a part of the paradigm shift in consciousness that awaits the Universe. At 11:49 AM EDT the smoke rose and the bells rang, it was such a moment of great joy our hearts join those of our brothers and sisters of the Catholic church. We pray for the Pope, for his leadership in this changing world, that his life will be a light to the world. Mitakuye Oyasin (we are all related)
As Cardinal Ratzinger he chose the bear carrying a back pack. A humble symbol of burden. ( Smile, a good totem!) We know that miracles await those with eyes to see and we pray that as Pope Benedict XVI serves his people he will manifest the Christ in His Wholenes.
I post this message as one responding with a catholic heart. So consoling to know that Blu and WIS are loving beings able to surpass the barriors of religion, to see beyond the earthly bonds of prejudice, and to appreciate the Faith of Catholicism; the faith of my forebears and the one to which my soul is bound in this lifetime. Thank you for your prayers to our Pope! And God bless you with a long and prosperous life!
