I am absolutely horrified by Pope Francis' praise for Emma Bonino.
Can I even begin, as a Canadian, to imagine Saint John Paul II calling Henry Morgentaler* "one of the great ones of Canada"?
For years--with one or two exceptions--I have done my best to avoid writing about Pope Francis, but when this pontificate ends, I don't want to be listed among those who kept silent. I didn't mind before, but when the Holy Father calls someone who helped murder my generation in Italy "great", remaining silent is no longer charity and prudence is a mask for cowardice.
Denzinger-Bergolio provides food for thought.
This is one of those times in which there is no substitute for the nominative first person singular. I. Am. Horrified.
*The laudatory article, by Morgantaler's biographer, was deliberately chosen, so you can see how praise for such a man makes your flesh creep--especially at the end.
