Time for a Halt: As the pilgrim family uses its provisions, so the Church enjoys light, leadership, food, and means of maintenance and mission.
The Church is taught and guided by the Catholic Bishops who are in communion with one another and with the Pope. God has given us the Pope as our bond of unity. Only those Bishops who remain in union with the Pope (who is like the gem-stone in a ring of stones) are fulfilling God's plan and providing, with the Pope, authentic leadership for the Church.
A good leader should always ask himself what effect his words are having upon the ordinary man who listens to him. Is the leader holding out hope of peace and justice; does he encourage the man towards co-operation in goodness, and set him a good example, or is he leading him astray?
Worldly leaders enjoy displays of riches and power; but we cannot impress God by our extravagant deeds, or powerful displays. He loves everyone, but He lavishly rewards those who approach Him in humility and contrition, and who put their trust in His Son.
When a tyrant rules, and terrorises his own people, there is great need not just for brave, wise political activists, and for men willing to be political martyrs; there is a great need for intercessory prayer, in Christ's name, so that the leader helplessly enslaved by the evil one can repent, and change.
