My, these are strange times.

Mikhail Gorbachev admits he is a Christian: “St Francis is, for me, the alter Christus, the other Christ. “His story fascinates me and has played a fundamental role in my life.”
Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith, no one can please God, for whoever is brought near to God must believe that he exists and that he is the rewarder of those who seek him.”
Pope Francis I: “You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don’t believe and who don’t seek the faith. I start by saying – and this is the fundamental thing – that God’s mercy has no limits if you go to him with a sincere and contrite heart. The issue for those who do not believe in God is to obey their conscience. Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience.”
