Desperately seeking a leader…

20130314-104232.jpg

We have witnessed a worldwide event over the past few days, more than 100,000 people from all over the world gathering in Rome to take part in a historic event… Flags from all over the world as people crowded into St. Peter’s square to be part of something bigger than themselves.. Sanding for hours in the wet, cold weather… All eyes on a smoke stack, waiting for the sign of white smoke to billow out signifying the election of the new leader of nearly 1.2 million Catholics all around the world…

We need to allow people to feel like they are part of something bigger than themselves… Something that can and will change their lives forever…

Here is one Catholic commentators Job Description for the Pope: “Well, of course what we’re looking for is someone who’s holy, someone’s who’s intelligent, that knows theology, that knows the teachings of the church. But also somebody who can communicate. You know, can communicate to the average person, not just the scholars. And finally, there’s been a lot of talk about the need for someone who can re-organize and (get) the Vatican under control because bishops are upset about the leaks, about allegations of corruption and everything else and they don’t like that so you put all that together and it looks like Jesus Christ with an MBA..

That’s a pretty tough job description for anybody and there’s obviously nobody who fits it perfectly so I think we have to be realistic in terms of whoever gets elected Pope, He’s NOT PERFECT, there was only one person who was and we killed him!!

My Point: People are looking for a leader, they are looking for someone who can be holy, someone’s who’s intelligent, someone who knows theology, somebody who can communicate to the average person, not just the scholars, someone who looks like Jesus Christ with an MBA

Lets be that somebody!!!

MORE HIM, less me
