When the Vatican announced that Pope Benedict XVI is German(A White Anglo-Saxon Catholic WASC), I knew I was going to have a problem. We try not ot generalize about races of people, but German People sometimes have strong words. Once the media commented about his strong words. The German History is one of many wrongs that are known and have effected and affected many people, I hope that the Pope being German may help reduce some of the negative feelings people have toward this race.
I once met a women that is from another country, I stated that the Pope being German makes it difficult for Catholics because German History, she stated that the Germans did terrible things to her country, I stated that the Pope being German also helps people to see something positive about Germans, it seems that this women started healing emotionally because she could discuss , without judgement, her feelings.
God Does Not Make Mistakes!
