NEW YORK (RNS) “If Pope Francis were throwing tonight’s party we wouldn’t be in white tie at the Waldorf. We’d be in sweat pants crammed into a corner booth at the IHOP.”

    I maintain that Pope Francis is America’s favorite catholic. You two will have to settle for second and third.
    By the way, what is wrong with being modest? Not a bad trait for a few of our Bishops to strive for. I feel we have some very anxious Bishops in the country, as it seems Pope Francis is wanting them to act more like pastors, than politcians.
