Papal doves attacked

Pope Francis lets free two doves with the help of two children
We are all aware of the conflict between good and evil, between darkness and light, between the positive and the negative. But no one expects this to reveal itself in front of thousands of people in St Peter’s square, just a few feet away from Pope Francis. Well, we all remember the attack on Pope John Paul II on May 13, 1981. But this was a different kind of attack. It has become a tradition that from time to time, the Pope lets go a couple of doves from his window. Sunday January 26, with the help of two young children, Pope Francis let free two doves, only to be attacked by two angry birds, a seagull and a crow. 
Showing no respect for the Holy See at all, these two birds swept in and attacked two innocent white doves, as tens of thousands of people watched in St. Peter's Square on Sunday during the weekly Papal audience. One dove lost some feathers as it broke free from the gull. But the crow pecked repeatedly at the other dove. God only knows what happened to the doves after they flew off. Maybe this is symptomatic of the way some people treat the influence of the Holy Spirit in their lives, as well as God the Father and Jesus His Son.
