My friend Mr. John L. Allen, Jr., the nearly ubiquitous fair-minded columnist for that instrument of dissent, the National Catholic Reporter, has done us a great service in translating and transcribing the Q&A Pope Benedict XVI held with priests of the Diocese of Rome on 26 February.
You can find it here.
Allen’s comments are here. They are useful.
This Pope is amazing in that he holds these Q&A sessions in different locations and occasions.
I would be interested in your comments about the Q&A. I won’t reproduce the text here. Read it there and come back.
