…have a big glass of Pope-lemonade!
Pope Benedict XVI blessed a group of children with disabilities Saturday and told them it was a special joy to spend time with them.
He spoke at Saint Joseph Seminary in Yonkers, just a few miles north of New York.
“Sometimes, it is challenging to find a reason for what appears only as a difficulty to be overcome or even pain to be endured,” the pope told the children and their caregivers.
“God has blessed you with life and with differing talents and gifts. Through these, you are able to serve him and society in various ways.”
Yes, it certainly is challenging when one is taught that “God is all-knowing, all-powerful, and – oh yeah – love too.” His idea of love and mine would appear to be at significant odds.
Next year, instead of a card and cooking a nice dinner, maybe I’ll get my wife a debilitating disease for her birthday.
Can you feel the love tonight?
