Many thanks for your patience during this last week. I was out of town visiting friends and doing some research in a university library’s archives for a current book project over the July 4th holiday break. Now that I’m back, things should return to normal. In the meantime, here are a few links to some of the important news items that have been unfolding over the last few days, each of which have to do with Pope Francis. It’s hard to keep up with the Bishop of Rome these days! More commentary to follow:
- Release of Encyclical Letter Lumen fidei.
- Announcement of Canonization of Pope John XXIII and John Paul II.
- Pope reproaches priests who drive “fancy cars” and calls for more humble transportation.
- Pope celebrates Mass on island of Lampedusa, draws attention to immigration deaths.
