I am here, Pope Urban II.
Let me continue with my story. I could not deny the reality of the Angel, so I began to rethink everything I had believed. My foundation was shattered. But not only this. I thought about my activities both before and after I became pope, and I came to see that many things I did were wrong.
And then, in the midst of my thoughts, an Arab who had been killed in the First Crusade, which I started, came to me. He wasn’t angry at me. In fact, he told me he was at peace. The connection was clear: God was telling me I was responsible for his death. And then, I began to suffer. My sufferings continued for awhile, but then that same Angel told me how to get out of my suffering. She said I could pray for the Divine Love, which would cleanse me of my sins. By that point, all I wanted was relief, so I did as she told me, and I did find relief.
I know it’s hard for you to understand how an important church leader could violate directly Jesus’ great teaching of loving one’s enemies, but that’s the way we thought. We did not see it with the clarity of time and hindsight. We only reacted to the exigencies of the moment.
But all that is past. I wish to give you a word of comfort as to the present predicament. God is faithful, and He will help humanity in an undeniable way, as He has promised.
