Peggy Wente v. David Brooks
The Pope’s radical critique has been ardently embraced by progressives everywhere, from Naomi Klein to Whoopi Goldberg. Among his biggest admirers is U.S. President Barack Obama, who’s hoping that the Pope can perform a miracle and get the doomed UN climate talks back on track.
–Peggy Ayn Wente, Globe and Mail, Sept. 22, 2015.
Pope Francis is an extraordinary learner, listener and self-doubter. The best part of this week will be watching him relate to people, how he listens deeply and learns from them, how he sees them both in their great sinfulness but also with endless mercy and self-emptying love.
–David Brooks, New York Times, Sept. 22, 2015.
