Per Papa: Watch Your Mouth

I love the ease with which Pope Francis preaches in this Rome Reports video from earlier today as he celebrates Mass with employees of Argentinian embassies and consulates in Italy: While the video doesn’t give the full context of the Pope’s homily, I would imagine that his remarks — preached in Spanish for the first time [Read More…]
