ESD#38: it is as it was

With the risk of being overly generous, I thought the Boston Globe's top headline today was absolutely brilliant. In regards to the Pope's U.S. visit, the headline read:

A hearty welcome, a contrite tone

It pithily sums up both the event and the underlying motivation for it.

If the editors had slightly reworded it to "A gracious welcome, a contrite spirit," it would have neatly summed up all of Christian theology, too.

interesting map of Catholics in the US, how the south is becoming much heavier with Latino immigration, while Massachusetts has lost it's Kennedy heritage.
