"The last thing that is needed is for me to add my thoughts to the mass of words already written about [Pope Francis'] astounding interview."
So I wrote in my last blog post. I chose to ignore myself.
In today's editorial page of the Louisville Courier-Journal, you'll find an op-ed I wrote about Pope Francis' words. I tried, on the basis of some wise advice I received via Twitter, to make my brief essay more of a personal reflection on the pope's words rather than an intellectual dissection of them.
The op-ed can be found here.
