The Good German Shepherd

There have been two big rumors in Catholic D.C. circles this week: a) the pope would appear at a party at the Italian embassy last night b) the pope would meet with victims of priestly betrayal. He did the second and not the first and therein you see the successor to St. Peter’s priorities and understanding of what the Church hear needs. As he emphasized orthodoxy, fidelity, fundamentals, he shows compassion and leadership and offers Christ’s hope. What a successful trip, and only two days in.
