The hope witnessed with the fall of the Berlin Wall, contrasts sharply with today, with the Invisible Magic Friend’s Holy Virus, climate change and everything just generally being rubbish.
This is where the Catholic Church comes in. We’re experts in dealing with reality.

Preachy, insulting tosh.
What a jumble of wafflecock. Does the Catholic god-creature really give us anything to inspire hope? That would be an ecumenical matter I suppose.
Gosh, that was bewildering.
Bringing the ancient prophets of the ‘Hebrew Scriptures’ into the discussion is a dicey business. After all, the last thing they were doing was to foresee actual or potential worldly problems so that rational human beings might find a way of cooperating in order to deal with them.
The main reason the likes of Jeremiah made it into the scriptures was to enable their compilers to show the pious Israelites what was supposed to happen if they, and their rulers, failed to obey the instructions of the IMF to the letter. So how does this formula translate into today’s poverty, injustice and virus-infected world? Perhaps Anna would like to tell us which of the Commandments we’re violating just now; and how we’re supposed to atone for this dereliction.
