Well, here we are over a month since Pope Francis exhorted us Americans in person to be missionary desciples. I have not heard either word from my parish priests…..Am I wrong to expect something to be said? Seems to me the pulpit is the appropriate place for a meaningful directive to the flock. I have seen nothing in the local papers and I have heard nothing on the radio inviting those who might have been interested to come and speak with a priest. It was truly meaningful momentum then. I try to carry it on; I am retired but opportunites do arise. I have used the approach to ask folks what they thought of the Pope and take it from there…..That stirs the pot, opens the mind, makes it happen in a sense.
