I, God, welcome you to my blog!

The good book says only God is good, so it seems to me somebody needs to step up.

I hope you enjoy reading this, the Jesse Journal, as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Please feel free to subscribe, write me an email, request that I write about any particular topic you may want my perspective on, send a prayer, click on the charity link, or donate money to my bicycle fund! Have fun!

F.Y.I. There are about 1000 posts..

Here's a quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky to start things off right: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

Catholic conglomerate

who will be the new CEO?

115 cardinals are convened to select the next pope.
The pope is held to be the "vicar of christ" and the direct successor of Peter.

(Isn't vicar just a fancy word for priest?  I picture a vicarage as an english priest's home..)
Christ's priest?  Jesus' personal priest? Ha.

There are 1.2 billion catholics.
The NY Times said,
"Popes are not just spiritual leaders, but chief executives managing the vast international conglomerate that is the church, with its franchises around the world and headquarters in the vatican state."

Which is another way of saying "body of christ", I suppose.
'catholic' means "universal", but I suppose this has less meaning with physicists/scientists who believe in a "multiverse."  And 1.2B people is hardly "universal"...
What about the Ewoks?  Or the Vulcans?  The Glorgs of Galacticon X?  Ha.

okay, cardinals: May the force be with you.
The winner must/will have 2/3 of the vote.  That's 66.6%, lol.
