“Human rights are not only violated by terrorism, repression or assassination, but also by unfair economic structures that creates huge inequalities” – Pope Francis

As I read about the President’s third visit to the Vatican with his usual large entourage to visit the Holy See, I fail to understand why President James Michel is still in “search of inspiration and wisdom” when he has visited the Vatican on two previous occasions. Were the previous Popes not wise or not forthcoming with inspirational thoughts, or is this not just another camouflaged visit in search of a photo opportunity with Pope Francis, following which President Michel can start manufacturing new clocks at taxpayers’ expense to donate to his own Parti Lepep flock of sheep before the election?

In search of inspiration and clocks
If indeed it is “inspiration and wisdom” that this globe-trotting, multi millionaire President seek, then as a devout and humble Catholic, I believe it is my duty to guide our President by reminding him of the 10 laws handed down to Moses on Mount Sinai by our Creator GOD. Those 10 commandments were gifted to mankind to show us how to live a better life and how to please our Lord forever, and when handed over, was accompanied by smoke, earthquakes and the blast of a trumpet to emphasize the importance of these laws. Moses recorded God’s words in Exodus 20:2-17. A reminder of some of the 10:

-You shall not murder.
-You shall not commit adultery.
-You shall not steal.
-You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
-You shall not covet your neighbour’s house; you shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbour’s.

As he seeks wisdom and inspiration and hopefully redemption as well, I would kindly ask the President to pay particular attention to those supreme laws.
