Christian Thought and Understanding Whether We Really Serve God and Jesus Christ...

Dear Pope Francis

I cannot believe I am writing my understanding of Christianity, to such a High Status person I have never met or likely you would ever want to meet.
The smallest cog and irrelevant person in this whole world, I am sure that is myself.
My message is as follows and forgive my outright belief if it offends in any way, as in its entirety is certainly not meant to.

All Christian Churches seem to line their own pockets. I thought Jesus followers had to stop hoarding wealth and give it to the poor and homeless. I don't see any of this in churches or practices of Christianity. God gives them humility in doing so, and the followers of Jesus have to rely on God to provide their daily needs, whether through other followers or kindness and charity of others. Churches, cathedrals and other praying institutions don't do this though. Paying lip service, and honouring themselves and not 'Faith in Action' as it should be.

I have personally been through life with neglect from loved ones,, brutishness towards me, bankruptcy due to having no job to provide for my mortgage. loss of one of my children, anxiety and depression, going without funds in my marriage. Having the most lovely grown up children and grandchildren have counteracted all of these instances, apart from the worry of my eldest child, a son in his late 30's who's addiction has taken him to the ground. My children were brought up with the church and their activities. I took it upon myself as a child to be part of churches and Christianity. It was a poor Achievement on my part and didn't make the grade I don't think.

Thank you for listening if you have done so. As I've already stated, I am a nobody, and immaterial in such a big world which has more important things to think about.

Yours sincerely
