Leaders of Carnival band following Jesus

Published:

I have noticed where certain people condemn the Catholic Church for bringing out a band for the Carnival because they say that Carnival is of this world and as such true followers of Christ should not be part of it. I have also read in the Bible: God sent his Son into this world not to condemn the world, but so that through Him the world might be saved (Jn:3.17).

When the Son of God came into the world he was accused of eating (liming) with tax collectors and sinners and his reply to the accusers was: I did not come to call the virtuous but sinners (Mt: 9.13). And throughout the New Testament we read where Jesus was often among the sinners, including prostitutes and the despised of society. He did this for he knew in his divine wisdom that if he had to save them he had to live among them.

It is amazing that though history has changed human nature has remained the same for the Pharisees of today are now condemning the Catholic band leaders when they are following Jesus and being among the sinners in an attempt to show them the correct way. I am a fervent Catholic and would like to encourage the leaders of the Catholic band to continue like true Christians to follow Jesus Christ.
