"The following is a guest post from Paul Gondreau, Professor of Theology at Providence College. Paul is serving as the Faculty Resident Director at PC/CEAs Center for Theology and Religious Studies in Rome this semester, joined by his wife Christiana and their 5 kids. After Easter Mass in St. Peters Square yesterday, Pope Francis hugged their son Dominic."

I think the fact that he likes Math is positive. Not enough people like Math. A man in our church just ran for office today. My father said to me...."Well, I guess I'll vote for him. I can't not vote for him and look him in the eye....but I hope he doesn't win....he's a great guy....but he sucks at Math". Sometimes Pareto's Law is simply too difficult to grasp! :) To have a man who understands math but also theology....what a great combination. The two actually go very well together.

Did you know that Pope Francis was essentially "exiled" by the Jesuits to the outskirts of Buenos Aires before he was an Archbishop after he tried to reform the Jesuits (and this was done with agreement of the "government" of Buenos Aires apparently). He ended up teaching Math to students living in poverty in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Pope John Paul II "rescued" him and appointed him Archbishop of Buenos Aires. Thanks be to God for our Saint Pope John Paul II!



What a courageous man to live his principles to the point of effectively "trashing" his career with the Jesuits (at least for a period of time) and the humility to accept his "exile" to teaching students in a very poor area of Buenos Aires on the outskirts. He did not know that he would be "rescued" by Pope John Paul II. He truly lived out his Faith in God here! Thanks be to God for our new Pope Francis!

This is an article that I found from FOX news Latino (dated 3/16 or 3/17):

I do hope that Cardinal Law will be dealt with to the full extent that it can be done within the Church. If Pope Francis can do something to make this happen, I think that it would be a great thing. From everything that I remember in the news at the time that Law dashed off to the Vatican, it seemed to me that the more appropriate residence for Cardinal Law was a prison cell rather than hanging out at the Vatican. I was happy to see that since Cardinal Law was over the age of 80, he was not eligible to vote in the conclave. To bad that couldn't be said of Cardinal Mohoney (of LA).

This article still has most of your information, but focuses on the official word from the Vatican spokesperson.

Mike,


Thanks for the article.


I was having a difficult time finding much reported about this from reliable, main-stream media sources.
