There are rare moments when I'm proud of my Church, whatever that means these days. I think the fact that millions of people from all over the world can come together like they did for the Pope's funeral is incredible. Period.
God bless Giovanni Paulo.
He and I disagreed on a lot of things, but I'm still a Catholic, and I don't think I'll ever get past that. The guilt got me, I suppose.
I'm a sucker for ceremony and ritual.
That can't be a good thing...
