Stick and Stone May Break Our Bones, but Your Cartoons Will Never Hurt Us.

As a catholic, I am trying to understand the humor in Charlie Hebdo’s caricature. I looked for anything that Charlie created depicting Jesus and I found these.

I don’t remember that Catholics went on an uproar and started shooting the cartoonist in France when it was published. This is not WWJD (what would Jesus do). Jesus promotes love and not killing.

Speaking of love, the Catholic Filipinos has so much love to give when Pope Francis visited the Philippines.  According to the news, at least 6 million Filipinos came to celebrate the visit of Pope Francis.

Just take a look at these photos I found at Telegraph. This is good example of love and unity.

  1. Such great photos… I was really waiting in anticipation to see how Pope Francis would interact with the population on his visit to the Philippines, and when I was in Tacloban we got to enter the church where he was speaking and it was neat when I was there alone in the church to think how it would feel when he was there with everyone 🙂

    • What a wonderful experience to have been there, alone, in the church. I can picture you there in his presence being the official photographer. Then you would have posted your own shots. ❤ love that imagery.

      Yah, Aren't these shots awesome!

  2. You know what made me truly respect the Pope more than the message and his devotion? The fact that he was told the risk of having a car completely open in other countries and he said that he is willing to risk it so long as he can be closer to the people, wow! 🙂

    • He goes boldly where no man has gone before, except for Jesus. He is indeed a very very very brave since he has nothing to lose. He will be more powerful should anyone done wrong to him. This is the biggest gathering, ever, in history so far.

Write it up, write it down, it will make us feel better.
