TedFav:  The Pope’s TED talk last week 

I have got to admit I am a big fan of this Pope.  Very early in his papacy he was asked why he wasn’t talking about traditionally thorny issues like abortion, priest abuse and gays in the church. He replied ” who am I to judge?”  Many were stunned. Isn’t the Pope the one who judges us here on earth?  Actually no. Only god judges in the end.  This pope has really focused on being humble (very Jesuit trait) and helping others.  His talk focuses on reminding us all of our common humanity in a time of extreme divisions.  While spiritual it is not a “Catholic” ideological pitch. It is reminding us of universal truths and the value of kindness, humility and our common human journey.  Very timely and useful.
