Winters on Benedict
I’m too busy this week to write my own, so I will steal the posts of others! Michael Sean Winters has written a great little essay on the pope. I concur with practically every word, and I went through the very same path of initial anxiety to deep admiration. My main complaint with the papacy so far is that he has not done enough to clean house at the Vatican. The Sodanos are still in place. Brave leaders like Diarmuid Martin are not getting the support they need. Benedict has an awe-inspiring message, which shines through his beautiful prose. But this light must not be hidden under a bushel, which means that some house cleaning is in order.
