In which I talk about Pope John Paul II and how you can bloom where you’re planted.

An excerpt:

Just because we’re living in a society where we aren’t slaves and have the freedom to do whatever we want doesn’t mean that we act like a bunch of party animals. Nor should we act like entitled brats that think that we should get everything that we want or say whatever we want because it’s a free country. Instead, Peter says

“Conduct yourselves honorably among the Gentiles, so that, though they malign you as evildoers, they may see your honorable deeds and glorify God when he comes to judge.”            (1 Peter 2:12)

So no matter who’s in charge on Earth, we ought to live our lives in as God wants us to lead them.This doesn’t go against the idea of civil disobedience.
