    Thank you CL. I’ve been to Madrid a couple of times and never visited this perhaps next time.

    Nice point, well made. If I live my full span, I expect to see nobody faffing about their pronouns, or what the ‘real’ aboriginal name of Melbourne is. On the other hand, I will probably have to endure seeing hospitals named after Daniel Andrews, Brett Sutton and Anthony Fauci.

    Oh, and I also hope to live to see a Catholic elected Pope.

    Thank you also C.L.

    Incarnation – Crucifixion – Resurrection – Ascension – Parousia in time to come. Those who fired bullets that day and others who later all but demolished the original monument with dynamite evidently lacked any conception of what they were trying to destroy.

    Any who later repented will have come to know the love and forgiveness symbolised by the outstretched arms of The One whose likeness stands atop the monument.

    Christianity is either the most enduring hoax perpetrated on mankind, or it is true, as you, I and many believe. Without it, the still relatively civilised though abysmally fallen Western world would not be.
