Sometimes, music can provide a sense of what is healthy or a direction. And, following the money can take you to a cause.
The Catholic Church has a leader in Pope Francis who does appear to have a relatively high degree of intuition as detailed in many previous articles. He has responded to new additional media information about clerical sexual abuse and the ecclesial cover-up of abuse (https://www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2018-08/pope-francis-letter-people-of-god-sexual-abuse.html; obtained on 8-23-18) in various ways including “Letter of His Holiness Pope Francis
To the People of God” on 8-20-18.
Here is an excerpt: ” I am conscious of the effort and work being carried out in various parts of the world to come up with the necessary means to ensure the safety and protection of the integrity of children and of vulnerable adults, as well as implementing zero tolerance and ways of making all those who perpetrate or cover up these crimes accountable. We have delayed in applying these actions and sanctions that are so necessary, yet I am confident that they will help to guarantee a greater culture of care in the present and future.”
The question is why has the Catholic Church “delayed”? Does it come down to economics? While I do not know for sure my limited research has lead me to conclude that I do think economics has often trumped morality—even in the Catholic Church. Pope Francis may need to perform a sort of exorcism or cleansing and in doing so the church as we know it may significantly change. There may be less actual physical churches. There may be less actual places for church activities. There may be less or different people in the Church Hierarchy.
A small price to pay for going back to school.
“The Voice” is from The Moody Blues’ Long Distance Voyager Album Released in 1981 written by Justin Hayward. Here is an excerpt from the lyrics’ beginning:
“Won’t you take me back to school?
I need to learn the Golden Rule
Won’t you lay it on the line?
I need to hear it just one more time
Oh, won’t you tell me again?
Oh, can you feel it?
Oh, won’t you tell me again tonight?”
