Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Wisdom From The Heir Of Peter

QUOTE The authority of the papacy is exercised in service: service of the Church and service of the truth. Deep down, we crave to be subject to such authority. We want to live our lives according to what is true, good and beautiful. The Pope reminded the young people this evening that in seeking what is true, good and beautiful, we exercise true freedom – a true freedom that leads to happiness and joy.
Young people have a special gift of generosity and hope. They want a cause, something to give their lives for. They have a natural hope for happiness and fulfillment. They witness to the rest of us who may have given up on such ideals.
The Holy Father told the young people tonight,

“Our world has grown weary of greed, exploitation and division, of the tedium of false idols and piecemeal responses, and the pain of false promises. Our hearts and minds are yearning for a vision of life where love endures, where gifts are shared, where unity is built, where freedom finds meaning in truth, and where identity is found in respectful communion. This is the work of the Holy Spirit!” UNQUOTE
