The Catholic Church is into a lot of criticisms lately particularly about priests molesting children. The Holy See promised to never stop protecting children and look into these cases. These issues only shows that priests are humans too who make mistakes but that is not an excuse. I studied in Catholic schools but that doesn't mean I am a devout Catholic... I believe in the doctrine and dogmas and live a life the way true Christians do. I am sad that these issues are being brought up again so as my support for the Pope's means to save and protect both children and the Catholic church, here are some pins and brooches that are inspired by the religion.
