And that’s it, Keira?

According to The Sun newspaper, Keira Knightly said she is desperate to be Catholic because her sins would be forgiven. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor, who is an atheist, is reported to have said: ‘You’d just ask for forgiveness and then you’d be forgiven’.

The 27-year-old will be next seen in Anna Karenina.

    Mattt 11:28f certainly suggests that there is no load, doesn’t it? But isn’t there such a thing as being too simple?

      It’s quite possible that this is simply an answer to a journalist ‘s question, but taking it at face value, I’m sure that everyone experiences a longing to start over fresh. Guilt isn’t a religious preserve: it’s a basic human experience, don’t you think?

    Yes, I do think that. And in that light, perhaps my comment was a little too sharp. I agree that guilt is a basic human experience, at least to those humans who have the capacity to experience guilt. The Door we hope to squeeze through is narrow though.

    I enjoy reading your posts and bid you to continue the inspiring work!
