      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Ah, yes, there should be a distinction made between a member of the United States Republican Party and an Australian Republican. Let's see if I can find some links! Here we go.. http://www.republic.org.au/, https://www.gop.com/. This is definitely worthy of further study.

      If I were a USA citizen I would not join the GOP. Not my cup of tea. Besides they are in a kind of crisis now aren't they with Donald and that other guy doing their best to remove existing GOP congressmen and senators and replace them with crazies from the TEA party or something.

      Caution, Australian media laws are not as prudish as USA ones so an occasional naughty word may be heard.

      That's right, you lot don't have that Puritan background. Do you suppose waiting for the current queen's death would work, though? If Australia breaks away, what of New Zealand? Or Canada? Or any of the other country in the Commonwealth of Nations?

      I think many Australians believe that Prince Charles is crazy and Camilla has never been loved by the Australian public so waiting may mean instant republic because nobody in Australia will want King Charles and Queen Camilla.

      That seems to simplify things considerably.

      Things can change. By the time Elizabeth dies Charles may have redeemed himself in the public's opinion. I'd prefer to end it while the queen is still there so that nobody can claim it happened because everybody hates Charles.

      Before Princess Diana's death, I might have sympathized with the Royals some. Now, I hope your country gets exactly what it wants and needs in regard to its autonomy. Australia should be governed by Australians.

      It is. But the head of state is English despite being "queen of Australia".
