Pope Francis More Concerned about People Than Being Pope

“Thousands of refugees have arrived at Lamedusa each year in desperation after making the journey across the Mediterranean from North Africa in small, dangerous boats. Francis wants to pray together with them and also throw a wreath into the sea to commemorate those who have lost their lives trying to make it to Europe. The pope has announced that he doesn’t want to meet with the mayor or other authorities. He also also ordered church officials to stay away.” (http://abcnews.go.com/International/popes-reform-path-francis-shakes-church-establishment/story?id=19573297#.UdgfPhbPUaV)

To communicate or not to communicate, that is the question.

Members of the Holy Cross Province are gathering in Detroit next week for their annual meeting. Besides professed members, some of the lay members of the CPP will be joining them. Hopefully, this will be an opportunity for CPP’s to meet and talk about our future. I think uppermost on many of our minds, is how we communicate, and so the above poll. Please take the poll and add any comments regarding the poll question or other concerns you would like to raise. Thanks for your participation.
