Smell of the Sheep: Catholic journalist Antonio Socci criticized Pope Francis for his cold reception of the husband and daughter of Asia Bibi. Bibi is a Catholic mother condemned to death in Pakistan for allegedly having insulted Islam. Her husband and daughter were introduced to the Pope in Spanish during a general audience, but Francis quickly passed on. The desperate family had asked for a private audience with the Pope, but was refused. Quote Socci: “Is this the shepherd who wants to smell like the sheep?”

Cruel Incident: Italian police detained 15 Muslims who on April 14 allegedly threw 12 Christians from a migrant rubber boat with 105 passengers crossing from Libya after they expressed faith in Jesus Christ. The suspects were detained after police interviewed tearful survivors from Nigeria and Ghana who were rescued at sea. Speaking at the White House, visiting Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi tried to play down the incident saying “The problem is not a problem of clash of religions.”

Downhill Slope: Pat Buchanan explains in The Wanderer how the revolution that undermined moral life came about: “First comes a call for tolerance for those who believe and behave differently. Then comes a plea for acceptance. Next comes a demand for codifying in law a right to engage in actions formerly regarded as debased or criminal. Finally comes a demand to punish any and all who persist in their public conduct or their private business in defying the new moral order.”

Pastoral Latin: Fr Kevin Cusick, an U.S. army chaplain, writes in the Wanderer about a Navy chief petty officer who got in touch with him after having attended the Old Rite Masses, Cusick celebrated during active duty in 2013. The officer wrote: “I thoroughly felt at the time, and still do now, that I was participating in the true worship of Our Lord.” And: “Our Southern Baptist services at my home church that my wife and children and I have attended for over 20 years seem generic and missing of something deeper and richer.” Father comments: “Latin not only is not off-putting to those who are strangers to the Church and the faith, but rather serves to testify effectively to its divine origin in Christ 2,000 years ago.”
