Why I Won’t Be Writing A Letter To Pope Francis
Everybody wants to be a saviour. Nobody in their right mind sees a victim and doesn’t feel the impulse to rescue and protect them. It’s a universal human trait. And it’s well-intentioned. But, as Dante said, the path to hell is paved with good intentions.
Catholics believe only one man is capable of providing that salvation we all so keenly want, not just for ourselves, but for each other. It’s obvious, but it bears repeating – again and again. Catholics believe Jesus Christ is mankind’s only Saviour.
That truth offers comfort and peace. But it also brings pain, because of the Fall.
