I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend. I’ve been busy all day myself with the daughter and various friends. In the meantime, I continued to be impressed by Pope Francis.
There’s a new pope in town and, by the Church’s standard, he’s pretty revolutionary:
I find the Jesuit thing the most surprising. I never thought we would see a Jesuit Pope. He’s 76 so we’ll see how much of an influence he has. But my first impressions are positive. There’s some noise on Twitter about him opposing abortion, same-sex marriage and contraception (Twitter, apparently, is shocked that the Pope is Catholic; no word on how Twitter feels about what bears do in the woods). But my first impression is positive. I think it was a good choice.
