Just a note of concern: I was at the Wednesday audience yesterday and seated
only perhaps 30 feet from the Pope where I could see and hear clearly.He appeared to be totally exhausted, even to
the point of slurring words.This should
be a cause of concern and of prayers for those of us who are delighted with the
direction he is giving the Church. I hope
over the next few weeks to do some postings on his recent interview with La Civiltà Catholica, a Catholic
publication in Rome, in which the Pope made some remarkable statements that
very much change the tone of the Church in the modern world.
