So first thing this morning I was looking online and saw quotes -- which you might have seen, too -- about the Pope speaking on abortion, gay marriage. Quotes where he said the Church had become "obsessed" with sexual ethics, and that it needed to change.
I know. My head exploded, too.
It turns out America Magazine, where I worked for 4 years, and La Civilta Cattolica, the Jesuit magazine in Italy, approached Pope Francis for an interview. The results of that interview went live this morning.
Here is the link. The piece is quite long -- I encourage you to take your time with it. Yes, it's got some hot button stuff that the papers are already buzzing with. But there's more than that in the piece.
Once I've digested it a bit, I'll try to write something, probably for tomorrow.
These are certainly interesting times....
