Rose Marie Berger’s “The Pope We’ve Been Waiting For?” (June 2013) is spot on! I’m quite certain it echoes the feelings of most Catholics in the world, as well as those of many others regardless of their denomination or spirituality. Thank you so much for sharing what the world needs to know about Pope Francis—the new servant of the servants of God.
I also agree that Pope Francis’ reaffirmation of the “hostile takeover” of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious was not in keeping with his very consistent “I am at your service” leadership style. I’m praying that it will, in fact, be corrected as an accidental oversight.
