Sacred Path(s)

This is a link to an interview with Pope Francis via Catholic News:

As a prior* Roman Catholic… as an active Pagan/Wiccan individual… and as a woman/female human being very much devoted to the sacred path of the Goddess (Mother Mary?)… I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this interview of Pope Francis by several reporters. I found myself smiling and nodding and raising my eyebrows at much of what he said, and how he said it.

If the answers he gave the reporters are true – and giving him the benefit of the doubt, I shall believe they are – then I feel more hope for the RC Church as an entity and the world in its entirety than I have felt before. Also, I shall pray for those Roman Catholics whom I know personally, who find themselves upset by or disagreeing with their new Spiritual Father/Leader. May they – and other RCs whom I do not know – find the ease necessary to open the creaky, dusty doors of their hearts and allow for the bright light of spiritual growing pains. Namaste.

(*Footnote: As a “cradle Catholic” even if one ceases to follow the tenets of the Roman Catholic religion, working with the logic of the RC belief system, one should not/cannot refer to oneself as an “ex-Catholic” because the act of having been baptised into the RC church cannot be invalidated or removed from one’s soul. The term “lapsed Catholic” is most often used.)

    Peace, Wiccanwoman! I so love your posts and I am a faithful follower! I grew up to be a catholic, and when I studied my progressive theology/thealogy, am now on the questioning side. heartfelt gratitude for your very enlightening, honest, very well-written posts. Oh yes, and I am also what you can call a crone (at 54, much wisdom-gleaning here) and yes, I dance, under the full moon! I will continue to follow you as long as I breathe…namaste…love and light…
