When the Beginning Loops Around We Know it’s the End

Whenever you’re watching a drama on T.V., or enjoying a Movie, you can almost always tell when it’s the end of the program.

A scene from the beginning usually comes back around, which works as a way to connect the story into a loop, providing closure.

As I watched last night’s airing of The Bible, on the History Channel, I couldn’t help but think about the lowliness of Peter (an uneducated fisherman, who refused to be Crucified right side up) and the honor Christ bestowed upon him, as it compared to the humility of Pope Francis (using public transportation instead of a limo, and treating the poor as if they were the rich).

There were many important scenes skipped in this television version of the Gospel–but–when Jesus told Peter that he was the rock upon which He would build His Church, I let out a rebel yell of approval.

I believe we can all agree that Christ never wanted 2,000 or so Christian denominations.

Christ and His Corporate Body are One–always have been–always will be.

Christ has never been divided.

Since Jesus Himself said, not even He knows when He shall return, only God the Father, it would be irresponsible of me to say, the end is here.

I see this Pope as one who will re-unite believers by the millions.

I sense something special about him.

Jesus said, no one knows the day or the hour of His return.

That’s clear to me.

What’s also clear is that this latest Pope reminds me an awful lot of the first one.
