I want to enlist all Catholic bloggers in a little project.
I know a lot of Catholic blogs read WDTPRS even if they won’t link or admit it. I want to reach out to them for a mutual project.
One of the comments posted under another entry, a comment by kradcliffe said:
These are two comments I’ve heard by people I know:
My FIL went with us to the Mass in Glasgow and told me “I fell for him, today. I wasn’t really sure about him, but now I see that he’s a really good man, so humble and you can see he’s very shy and nice.”
And, a Church of Scotland friend of mine said this afternoon:
“I was narked by this visit initially, given what it has done to the traffic flow in central Scotland and the amount it has cost in police time, but what little reportage I have paid attention to suggests that Benedict XVI is a statesman and a highly intelligent man, and may be doing some good here.”
Do you know anyone who was initially hostile to Pope Benedict and who now, after the visit (to England, to the USA, to anywhere) is now won over, or at least open? It need not have been a visit. Could it have been from something he did or said?
