Did'ja see the photos of Pope John Paul II swatting the doves away on Sunday, 30 January 2005?
When I saw that I couldn't help but think of Matthew 3:16-17.
And Jesus, when he was baptised, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting upon him.
And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
What if those doves pestering JPII were the Holy Spirit? Since the news didn't report any voices from the heavens I have to wonder if He was "well pleased" with JP rejecting the Holy Spirit.
Aside: I'm probably going to hell for quoting the KJV.
