Hi, my fraternal brothers.
Here is that Irishmoose guy again. Yep, still confused about his spirituality.
Still confused even if he belongs in any church at all.
But this goes back to the religion of little Pete's birth..Catholicism.
As a gay guy, i know that i am not really welcome there, as i don't live by their teachings, and i am not ever going to change, for any religion either.
But what this is all about is, i made a post concerning my "mom". Post Partem Sindrome.
And in that post i made the statement that even she treated me thay way due to that syndrome..I would and could not ever forgive her for what she had done to me.
But, I have been going to the Catholic church, and saying the rosary & saying some of the prayers in the Mass.
And in the Our Father, it says "to forgive us our trespassers as we forgive them". Never really paid much attention to those words.
But, I just might have put a huge stumbling block in my way, if I don't forgive her. (she's dead).
Maybe my recovery depends on those "words".
And just maybe it's because of a little boys birth, that we will be celebrating in a few weeks. He was pure & clean & loved.
And during this time, we humans seem to be able to get along with each other,even for this short time. Hell we even have stopped killing each other during the various wars, in HIS honor.
I was there in Vietnam for Christmas of '68 and we stopped for 24 hours.
"Peace on earth", "Good will towards men". And just maybe forgiveness from another little boy of so long ago.
"Forgive us our trespassers" "as we forgive them". Maybe that's the key to my spirituality.
Thanks for hearing me ramble on, still confused as ever.
Heal well my fraternal brothers, heal well.
