“Media and critics can run wild with two paragraphs of more than 40,000 words or a sidebar to a long conversation.
But what Pope Francis is saying to Catholics and the world is so much more than a headline about capitalism or abortion.
When he talks about meeting the needs of the poor, for instance — as he sounds alarms over our use and abuse of one another as disposable, as he warns against indifference — he is not only talking about material poverty. We are bodies and souls! And that’s the pope’s business: Changing lives and saving souls.”
