Catholic and Orthodox churches reuniting

Catholic and Orthodox leaders, many, many, many, years ago, agreed that in the year 2025 they would come together.

2025 will mark 1700 years since the split of the Catholic Church and the creation of the Orthodox Church.  

1700 years, that is a long time.  I hope I am alive in 2025 to see the reunification of the church.

I also hope, that it does not take that long for the human race to realize that no matter what the color of our skin, we are all human beings.  When I took a couple walks today, I didn't think of myself as a white person or European an Indian or any of the other nationalities that make up my being.  If I did not look down at my hands, I would not have realized that I had white skin.  I did not know, as I walked along, looking through my eyes, that I had Indian blood, German blood, Scottish blood, English blood, or Irish blood within me.  

My wish for mankind throughout the world is this:

To see yourself and all others as a human being.  God most certainly sees us all as brothers and sisters. We are all in this thing called life… Together.

A lot of the time, it starts with how we see our own self.  We must all act with responsibility and as if we deserved to be one of God's children.

That is my wish!
