The spreading of the Gospel is a figurative conquering.

[1 Tim]
{1:18} This precept I commend to you, my son Timothy, in accord with the prophets who preceded you: that you serve among them like a soldier in a good war,

[2 Tim]
{2:3} Labor like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
{2:4} No man, acting as a soldier for God, entangles himself in worldly matters, so that he may be pleasing to him for whom he has proven himself.

Default Pope giving gifts of praise............make me barf.

Catholic Herald reporting Pope Francis gave three awards to George Clooney,Salma Hayek and Richard Gere for their contribution for a Vatican education project. Let,s see, George Clooney is an active liberal pro abortion pro gay big time Democrat operative who rallied against prop 8 in California. Hayek who was raised Catholic now practices yoga and does not believe in the institution of the RCC and she promotes women empowerment, Gere is a Buddhist with many New Age causes, one is the promotion of condoms for truck drivers in developing countries. Of course he was the lead actor in American Gigilo. How much longer can we go on....maybe he will recognize Margaret Sanger for her advancements in the medical field.

They did good work in contributing to the particular cause, for which they were honored. Similarly, Jesus praised the Centurion for his faith, even though he was a Roman soldier, not a Jew or Christian.

Every Pontiff is the Vicar of Christ, and therefore deserves to be treated with respect.
