Goethe hatte doch recht

Unser Weimarer Mitbürger, der Kollege Goethe (war ja sozusagen auch im Öffentlichen Dienst, nicht wahr?), hat einmal einen sehr bekannten Ausspruch getan, dessen Wahrheit ich lange bezweifelt habe:

„Amerika, du hast es besser!“

Nun, überzeugen Sie sich selbst (und legen sicherheitshalber ein Taschentuch bereit… ;-), 1.44 Min.!)

Medienpastoral der anderen Art.

EDIT: Auf mehrfachen Wunsch hier eine Abschrift des englischen Texts (nach dem Gehör, also keine Gewähr, aber ich meine, ich hab’s einigermaßen):

Our family’s made up of every race; we are young and old, rich and poor, men and women, sinners and saints.

Our family’s spanned the centuries and the globe.

With god’s grace, we started hospitals, to care for the sick.

We established orphanages and help the poor.

We are the largest charitable organization on the planet, bringing relief and comfort to those in need.

We educate more children than any other scholarly or religious institution.

We developed the scientific method and laws of evidence.

We founded the college system.

We defend the dignity of all human life and uphold marriage and family.

Cities were named after our revered saints, who navigated a sacred path before us.

Guided by the Holy Spirit, we compiled the bible.

We are transformed by sacred scripture and sacred tradition which have consistently guided us for 2000 years.

We are the Catholic Church; with over one billion in our family sharing in the sacraments and fullness of the Christian faith.

For centuries, we have prayed for you and our world every hour of every day whenever we celebrate the mass.

Jesus himself laid the foundations for our faith when he said to Peter, the first pope, you are rock and upon this rock I will build my church.

For over 2000 years we’ve had an unbroken line of shepherds guiding the Catholic Church with love and truth in a confused and hurting world.

And in this world filled with chaos, hardship and pain, it’s comforting to know that some things remain consistent, true and strong: Our Catholic faith and eternal love that God has for all creation.

If you’ve been away from the Catholic Church, we invite you to take another look. Visit Catholics Come home.org today!

Ours is one family united in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

We are catholic; welcome home!

    Ganz hervorragende Idee, den Text einmal aufzuschreiben. (Geht sonst immer so schnell vorbei.)
