Pope Wrap

Just a few good follow-up articles from a variety of sources that sum up the Pope's visit. Some are fans of the pope, (or of Joseph Ratzinger, prior to his elevation as pontiff) and some have been less enthused. It is good to read broadly and to take the pulse of American Catholics.

  • Colleen Carroll Campbell is a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a former speechwriter to President George W. Bush and author of The New Faithful: Why Young Adults Are Embracing Christian Orthodoxy. Her article is here.

  • Alejandro Bermudez was born in Lima, Peru, in 1960. He studied in Argentina, Peru and the U.S. before becoming the editor of the largest Catholic news agency in Spanish, ACI Prensa. He is currently the director of Catholic News Agency. His thoughts.

  • Most Rev. Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. , who is the Archbishop of Denver writes here.

  • Boston's own Sean Cardinal O'Malley talks about the pope's meeting with victims of sexual abuse in this interview.

  • The Rev. James Martin, S.J., is a Jesuit priest and associate editor of America, the national Catholic magazine. Father Martin is the author of several books on religion and spirituality, including "My Life With the Saints." Not always a fan of Joseph Ratzinger, we see a different take from Fr. Martin here.


And now a word from the bloggers:
