Two Great Popes STUDEO: MY THINKING SPOT - March 19, 2015 ... related article). This made me think again about how much I find in continuity between the two popes. (Not the least of which is how difficult/impossible it is to put either of these great men into simple categories that we tend to use in popular media today.) In many ways, I have felt it was Pope Francis who was able to put Pope Benedict's beautiful teachings into action. Here are some examples from Pope Benedict's writings that remind me of Pope Francis: The first and ...http://studeo.blogspot.com/2015/03/two-great-popes.html

As we look at our world, we still find many people who put themselves above all else. Many are aggressive, lacking kindness, and concerned mostly for their own needs. They do not care if they make others feel unsafe, vulnerable, or scared. It does not serve their own interests to be aware of others. We feel that many are impolite, rude, and lacking positive manners. Listen to the language of people on the ...http://predmore.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-fourth-sunday-of-lent.html
