This will come as a shock both to watery liberals who can’t stand a forthright orthodox Christian faith and to Lidless Eyes who strain at gnats (eek! the Pope received a traditional Indian greeting!) while overlooking the camel of a great deal of gung ho orthodoxy because it isn’t dressed in the trappings of Tridentine piety (which is, of course, the only form of true Catholic piety the world has ever known). No, the southward movement of the gospel is not the Panacea for All Ills. Nothing in this world is. But it’s a hopeful sign, on the whole. I, for one, have never met a bad African priest. I hope we get an African Pope.
