Festive Faith

I’ve tried to live life festively, yet I’ve added: perseverance, loyalty, unity, heart and feeling to my menu, too!
I’ve tried to share my wealth—
And I have never forgotten the Church—as indolent as I may be in attending—is Christ’s bride.
Celebrating life is one thing, as agrees Pope Francis, but adds: Bishops need no use religion for something lacking, and for nuns and monks to stop vice, envy, and jealousy—
He tells us to read Mathew, the Beatitudes and Deuteronomy for first fruits.
To me, it all comes down to two things: first, there can be too much of a good thing, and second:
Heaven help us, for what men do in the name of good!
