I can respect your viewpoint, but to offer a bit more clarity, my statements are directed to those that do not put the past few popes in a good light. My comments are essentially to defend the Holy Father and his predecessors. Mary has protected the Holy Fathers over the last century and has also outwitted the enemies.
I think that the Holy Fathers have done their best to avert world calamity, after calamity, with the assistance of Providence. The spiritual weapons have again proven to have been superior to conventional, even nuclear ones.
It baffles my mind of how even now people can't recognize that material communism was rendered useless even after it held the threat of nuclear annihilation against the Church and the other powers of the world.
What would you do, if you were pope, and Russia told you that they were going to obliterate the globe, unless you did what they commanded? Should one rub salt in it's face? Or does one take a more subtle means? A means by way of peace...yet still get the job done!
I am not at all against further consecrations to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and never have been. I think it awesome!!!
I just don't care for more attacks against the Holy Fathers (the present one or his predecessors), especially from small minds within.
To this small mind, it's obvious...
