Procula - At my age I have an excuse for not allowing you to comprehend formula, etc. Yet, if you so deem to think of it that way, I can understand. As to the Church. I shall always be faithful to the teachings ofthe Roman Catholic Church. My faith is rooted in Christ, and I firmly believe the Holy Spirit will heal my Roman Catholic Church,allowing the church to be cleansed of the sins of a few priests who have betrayed their sacred vows - made to God! My faith is unwavering, and am trying to be a better man and to pray for my Church and those who have disregarded their vows. As well, I shall be more compassionate to every individual hurt by these hypocrites - those souls hurt by the actions of these few. I pray forgiveness for those priests who have grieviously sinned and have been disobedient,to say the least, to church and civil laws. With the full knowledge that out Faith is of Hope and Charity and Love, I continue to pary that we also do not forget that God is the judge, not man, and that those among us who are devils will be judged according to their "acts," not our prejudice. Slainte.
