WHAT ABOUT THE OLD LATIN MASS?
Pope Benedict XVI opened up the Latin Mass for wider use among traditionalists who were opposed to the modern liturgy:
— "I think the decision of Pope Benedict was prudent and motivated by the desire to help people who have this sensitivity. What is worrying, though, is the risk of the ideologization of the (Old Mass), its exploitation."
HOW GREAT ARE THOSE NUNS?
Nuns working in hospitals took care of Francis when he lost most of one lung to an infection in his early 20s.
— "I am alive because of one of them. When I went through my lung disease at the hospital, the doctor gave me penicillin and streptomycin in certain doses. The sister who was on duty tripled my doses because she was daringly astute; she knew what to do because she was with ill people all day. The doctor, who really was a good one, lived in his laboratory; the sister lived on the frontier and was in dialogue with it every day."
