I read your wonderful Encyclical letter. It felt like propaganda. You did an excellent job explaining the issues that are facing our planet. I was right, when I said it can be summed up in one sentence to solve our pollution problems. As a neighbor, one should respect the yard of thy neighbor. One should not trash the land, air or water of their land or their neighbors land. We agree on this. Your ideas solving these issues seemed more political than resolute and workable. You may want to research the Fibonacci Code and the Golden Rule because I did not agree with number 6. There were many areas of your letter, that I felt were robotic. You were not specific in areas you should have been. I don’t know if you are aware but the world faces darkness on the horizon where Islam is concerned and you did not address that. The poor have always been with us and they will always be with us. We should help our fellow man and woman up. We should teach them to stand and walk on their own. You do not teach a child to run before they walk. You barely touched on Nuclear and GMO’s. You lost me on the Patrimony statement in Nature as you exclude the flowers. You never address the issues facing the bride which is the Church of man. We need the St. Valentine Pope during this time. The bride has ran away and is in hiding. The bride was raped and you never addressed this with an answer to show that the church was ever forgiven. The Church failed the bride when homosexual men raped the innocent. These were and are not men of God. It breaks my heart that the Church would rather guard and protect these sinful men and their practices instead of fixing the problem. Where is the repentance of the Church? Forgiven means repentance to not repeat the same sin over and over. The Church should have never taken the rites of Marriage away from the Priests. Jesus said, you cannot be lukewarm but the Church is lukewarm. The Church of man serves man and no longer acts as a Church of God.
Your writing is perfect. I guess, I am disappointed because it was written as propaganda for powerful men in high places.
May you find the path that leads the bride back to the Church for you the Holy See must know the truth in your heart. The heart of the Church is broken and you know longer preach the Gospel of our Lord. You know longer show the people how to find our Lord. The Church loses more souls than it gains. The Church needs a healer to heal her broken heart and soul.
Many Christians are suffering. Many Christians are persecuted. Many Christians are being killed for being in love with our Lord and “Yet”…the Church remained quiet and closed it’s doors. May God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit show you the truth that has evaded you all these years when it comes to understanding the true Love of our Lord. The truth dear Sir is found in the “Word”. May peace bless you always;
Your friend and admirer in the wilderness…DRL
