Musings 2006/212

request each individual parish or community
to set up a committee
to study the Pope's request
on what the Ministry of Peter should be.

The committee should then report to the community and the community to its leader and so on.
This will bring about untold miracles everywhere.

For the first time, everywhere,
Christendom would honestly endeavour
to perceive the true Ministry of Peter
and in seeking the Truth,
they will find humility
and in finding humility,
all of Christendom will find Peter -
will re-find him.

The leaders will be relieved, virtually overnight, of their responsibility to bring their flock back to Peter for their flock will request, even demand, that they take the proper and the fullest and the swiftest actions in leading them back to Peter, and so, to Christ - and so, to the fullness of the New Era of Love.
Such is the astonishing wisdom of John Paul the Great in his challenge to the whole world to suggest how the Ministry of Peter should be carried out!
Absolutely brilliant!
A genius, is this man of the millennium.

Either the leaders of the Christian denominations will lead their flocks back to Peter

or their flocks will lead them back.

So, let us pray for the virtue of humility - everywhere, in everyone.
It is not that humility is a debasement of oneself.
Not at all. Humility is the very reverse - it is the sure and perfect avenue to gain eternal life. Indeed, the greater the humility the greater the statue to be obtained in Eternal-life.

Because perfect humility is the sign
of the fullest possession of Truth,
then in reality, humility is
the virtue that ensues

In a way, the Life of Christ shows us this fact-of-life not only because of His incomparable humility in becoming Flesh-and-blood - proceeding from Divinity to creature-hood - but also, through His humility as a Man, He accomplished universal Salvation.
Christ chose humility.
He descended to the world of humility and through the world of humility He regained His Divinity - but more - He gained Divinity for all of the humble, from every age, from every nation!!
He regained Divinity through humility - through obedience.
P 65 5 4  Neither doth any man take the honour to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was.
65 5 5 
So Christ also did not glorify himself, that he might be made a high priest: but he that said unto him: Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
65 5 6  As he saith also in another place: Thou art a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchisedech.
65 5 7  Who in the days of his flesh, with a strong cry and tears, offering up prayers and supplications to him that was able to save him from death, was heard for his reverence.
65 5 8 
And whereas indeed he was the Son of God,

he learned obedience
by the things which he suffered:

65 5 9  And being consummated, he became, to all that obey him, the cause of eternal salvation.
65 510  Called by God a high priest according to the order of Melchisedech. 
The Whole Truth
As The Church teaches, it is quite possible to obtain Truth from creation itself - e.g. to prove God's Existence.
The fact that we now exist but once did not, is an amazing truth in itself.

Because we did not exist and do now exist,
means that everything we have has been
given to us!

That seems pretty simple to accept.
I suppose the next question is:-
Who (or what) gave life to us?
The smart, simple answer is that God gave us life - an answer that is impossible to prove wrong! As I have previously mentioned, the challenge is not
Prove to me there is a God - no, the challenge is Prove to me there is no God!
The former can be proved; the latter can NOT be proved!!
Nevertheless, there are some who suggest that there is no God and that the universe is all we have.
In saying that they are saying that the universe is god - it is self-created!
(You often get the sincere question
But who created God? which is not really a stupid question for the reasoning behind it is that everything must have been created; there must have been a beginning for everything, but forgetting that this just can not go round in circles forever - there must have been The Beginning.)
So, if there is no God, then obviously the universe itself is god for we have no alternative but to trace things back, as everyone does - our ancestors, man's history, creations history. Everything is traceable backwards and if there is no God then the universe itself is god for if there is nothing else,

then we have received everything we have
from the universe!!!

And of course, this is the claim of many people - that is to say, we are God. We, being the forefront of evolution (they say) are part of the universe and as such, are part of this godhead.
