    Richard Roth, a Franciscan Priest statement....


    “The Gospel offers a way to make our action sustainable and lasting over the long haul. People on the Right tend to be perpetually angry, fearful, and overly defensive, and people on the Left tend to be perpetually cynical, morally righteous, and outraged. The Gospel calls forth a refined instrument beyond these two falsehoods that can really make a difference because it is a new level of consciousness altogether. Such activists are themselves “a new creation” (Galatians 6:15) and the lightning rods of God’s transformative energy into the world.”

    So in Christ you are a new creation... IN CHRIST!

    Therefore you must be born anew.

    That's Fr. Richard Rohr

    Fr. Richard Rohr • Center for Action and Contemplation

    "Fr. Richard Rohr is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism...Fr. Richard’s teaching is grounded in the Franciscan alternative orthodoxy—practices of contemplation and self-emptying, expressing itself in radical compassion, particularly for the socially marginalized."

    Does he say anywhere that you must be born again? Don’t think most Catholics like hearing that. Course I do know Catholics who are Born Again so:Smile

    Smart man! We put up an antenna. Same crapola, just don't have to pay for it. And, with a couple of apps that is about all the TV we need. Saves us a bundle!
