Photo and a Thought for Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Your photo today is the stained-glass window above the north-side entrance door to Our Lady Star of the Sea.

In light of that photo, perhaps a quote from the present leader of our Church is in order...

In his first major interview after the College of Cardinals elected him Pope, Francis (Jorge Mario Bergoglio) was asked:

"Who Is Jorge Mario Bergoglio?"

His response:

“I do not know what might be the most fitting description.... I am a sinner. This is the most accurate definition. It is not a figure of speech, a literary genre. I am a sinner.” He continued, “Yes, perhaps I can say that I am a bit astute, that I can adapt to circumstances, but it is also true that I am a bit na├»ve. Yes, but the best summary, the one that comes more from the inside and I feel most true is this: I am a sinner whom the Lord has looked upon.”

Pretty much sums us all up, doesn't it.
