Friday Roundup

The Pope’s visit to the United States has had many great moments.  But his address to a joint session of Congress was incredibly important.  Here we see the power of a narrative–a narrative that moves people–a narrative that kings if you will, the most powerful persons on the earth, will receive and make an audience for.  From the Pope’s speech:

A nation can be considered great when it defends liberty as Lincoln did, when it fosters a culture which enables people to “dream” of full rights for all their brothers and sisters, as Martin Luther King sought to do; when it strives for justice and the cause of the oppressed, as Dorothy Day did by her tireless work, the fruit of a faith which becomes dialogue and sows peace in the contemplative style of Thomas Merton.”
