Gentle but firm


From St John's Valdaosta, a quotation from Blessed Anna Katherina Emmerich:
"I saw a Pope who was at once gentle and very firm... I saw a great renewal, and the Church rose high in the sky."
Robert Kumpel asks whether Pope Benedict is the Pope that she is referring to. "Gentle but firm" does certainly describe him well.

Robert also has extracts from Bl. Anna Katherina's vision of people wearing white aprons with blue riband and attempting to demolish St Peter's, marking out the lines of attack with trowels. His comparison of the masonic altar with the people's table of many Churches might be a bit much for some people but I have to say that I found it amusing.
