    As far as classical Buddhism is concerned, impermanence is the number one inescapable, and essentially painful, fact of life. It is the singular existential problem that the whole edifice of Buddhist practice is meant to address.
    To understand impermanence at the deepest possible level (we all understand it at superficial levels), and to merge with it fully, is the whole of the Buddhist path.

    The Buddha’s final words express this: Impermanence is inescapable. Everything vanishes. Therefore there is nothing more important than continuing the path with diligence. All other options either deny or short-shrift the problem.

    I hate Catholics. I hate catholic pedophile priests and nuns who abused little children for decades. I hate catholics that covered these crimes up. I hate catholics who blamed the victims for what the priests and nuns did to them.

    Why do conservatives LOVE catholic pedophile priests?

    that's a very incomplete definition to the point of being almost meaningless.

    You can get "spiritual feelings" - but unless you strive to understand and base your actions on such -
    what good is such fleeting nebulous thoughts?

    And handling it like the op, and like this, puts you on their level. So I'd stop, especially till you learn more about what you're talking about.

    Why? good question and sometimes we take time to figure it out, but God is in control, and we should believe in his work
    Yep. The god of the universe thinks Catholics are shit.

    Ever had damage to any of your churches?

    Anybody doubt that this is just another disgusting troll?

Whatever skilled artisans and craftsmen they find to rebuild it will be creating a new part of history.

    If it's an attack of some kind, of course it is to be abhorred, I know they were renovating the church, so with people coming and going anything is possible

    The Catholic Church and organized religion in general can go fuck itself so you won't see any sympathy from me in that regard.
    I see those charm school lessons you paid for really worked out.
