Michael Gerson and “The Pope Francis Moment”

Elizabeth Scalia - published on 09/23/15

Wry, smart, funny, cogent and important analysis

“Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson describes His Holiness as a bridge between the theological left and right and also between developed and developing worlds.”

A bridge? Well, yes, “Pontifex” — the twitter handle chosen by Pope Benedict XVI — means “bridge-builder”. But then, Benedict is a pretty smart guy!

The pope is Catholic. Catholic is neither left nor right, but “universal”.

Get a cup of coffee and enjoy this excellent, brief presentation.
