      well I'm not quite so cynical about the Pope as a lot of people on here seem to be - pope bashing seems to be the trend of the day and has little to do with true spirituality - but I do understand why that sentiment has arisen. Benedict I think has more charisma than he is given credit for, I changed my opinion of him after seeing him in person, and I actually think that any religious orthodox organisation has its 'issues', let's say, although they also serve useful social functions.

      You can pick any exoteric denomination, catholic protestant, Judaic, Islamic - even anthroposophic as some members here recently pointed out - and you can find both abuses and - on the other hand - signs of the divine presence. Jerusalem itself is the same - on one level it's a harsh, commercialised city of traders that's' absolutely rife with religious intolerance (hatred, even) and holier-than-thou-ness, and yet one cannot enter the city without finding one's self being a pilgrim and ultimately becoming more fully conscious of the glory of God. As to whether all roads lead to Rome, I think that is indeed debatable, I would rather see a genuine fusion between the churches of Peter and John, why do any Christians argue amongst themselves when it is such anathema to the spirit and word of the Lord?

      One's personal relationship with Christ is paramount IMO but churches/temples and the group environment can provide solace and certainly the buildings themselves do.

      A couple of thousands of years from now a pope will write a book absolving the Mexican drug cartels of their sins because during those "strange times" they rescued the Church---financially.
