I had a good time in Rome last week and I must say that the city is a very fascinating place. I can not get enough of exploring new places ,walking through the streets and quarters. I even have one favourite Catholic church!
St Veronika. It is a very beautiful,light church not far away from my favourite Pizzeria. Many young people today are tired of the Catholic Church in Italy. There are to many corrupted leaders within the Institution. I meet people very often that have been abused and treated in a very bad way by priests and even bishops. Some Evangelical ministers believes that if we can achieve unity with the Catholic Church we will be having revival in Europe. One of the most prominent Cardinals,former archbishop:Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini in Italy died some weeks ago and the last words He said was :”Our culture has aged, our churches are big and empty and the church bureaucracy rises up, our rituals and our cassocks are pompous,” the Cardinal said. “The Church must admit its mistakes and begin a radical change, starting from the Pope and the bishops. The paedophilia scandals oblige us to take a journey of transformation.” The Cardinal is also known for promoting that priests should marry and that the Vatican must fall so that the Kingdom of God can gain influence in this World. The Catholic Church is shaking today, The charismatic groups within the Catholic Church is struggling and today they are smaller and weaker than some years ago. When I preach in Italy,I preach the good news about Jesus. Many in Rome received Jesus for the first time in their lives. We are involved in building Churches in Italy. “Platforms” where the Gospel can be preached and where the Holy Spirit can freely move, free from worship of saints and of Mary.
This week there has been riots and killings of innocent people exercised by radical Muslims because of the short film “Innocent Muslims”…
I have not watched it…its not necessary,I can watch the news and see the behaviour of the fanatic lunatics killing innocent people in the name of their prophet…I guess the film is talking about them…
To hell with this type of perversion of religion. God is love!
