Pope Francis Says Christians Cannot Personally Know Jesus

In the spirit of full disclosure, I must confess (pun intended) that I am not personally a Catholic, having grown up as “black sheep” Protestants in a large, extended Catholic family (we needed color-coded name tags at our last reunion).

However, due to family relationships I am often sympathetic to the plight of Catholics. Besides, I also believe in angels and demons — a Catholic exorcist probably would be on my speed-dial, were I ever be convinced that I had literally encountered a demonic entity. I wouldn’t fool around or waste time with any rank amateurs in spiritual warfare.
