Amongst the delighted cries of my children unwrapping chocolate eggs and mutilating chocolate bunnies I try to remember just what Easter means. Once, the T.V. schedule showed films of a biblical nature at this time of year but alas no more,too passe it seems. We live in a time and in my case a country in which religion is seen as the province of the deluded and the ignorant... they mean me I guess. The Catholic church is at present under attack from the worlds media, liberal elite and money hungry lawyers, as they see in the church one of the last bastions of tradition and independence from leftist state interference and control.The Church not being of the headchopping threat making variety offers explanations and denials but to no avail...the media want blood. I am a member of the Catholic church and I will remain so until the end as I believe in the church and its teachings...not in individuals who undercover of the church commit crimes. So misguided,weak and gullible as I am I will vest my faith in the Church and in its Pope...God bless all this Easter.
