~ Idea 1263 ~
25 December 1997On this day of celebration of the birth of Jesus, I wonder what the Christ is thinking in the heavens looking down upon the Earth. He cannot fail to bemourn the millions of his beloved human brothers and sisters who were killed over the last 1997 years in his name and in the name of other prophets and emissaries like him. May I place in His mouth this prayer to His representative on Earth, Pope John Paul II:
"I pray you to rescind on Christmas 1999 the Papal Bull Inter Cetera of your predecessor in the 15th century requesting the colonialists of the Americas to subjugate and kill the indigenous people for the propagation of the Christian Empire and faith.
No papal bull was ever so contrary to my teachings and message to the world. Please do not invoke papal infallibility.
No human being on Earth, not even I in heaven am infallible, given all the killings and sufferings which were committed in my name.
Please do it out of love.
Please read the Declaration of Vision of the United Indigenous People at the World Parliament of Religions in 1993 in Chicago, which my son Robert Muller reproduces at the end of these 1300 ideas for a better world on my bimillennial birthday in 2000."

Volume II Chapter 11 - Of Gratitude
Life is a great miracle, a most beautiful gift, an incredible mystery.
Our planet is an even more magnificent wonder.
We must therefore be thankful and
be in love with
with all living beings,
with the universe and
with God and God's angels.
