So, This is a delayed post as I have been trying to do a soapbox slideshare related to the pope’s encouragement to priests (and therefore, all of us) to use modern technology to communicate about faith (even if that means stuff like blogging.)
But, slideshare wasn’t really working for me in the past snow-bound days, and I tripped across video. (h/t to American Papist, Thomas Peters) This is a scene from a German movie about Hitler has been re-dubbed countless times for comedy’s sake.
While the video’s message does get ever so slightly jingoistic in a time and on a site where we have been encouraging spiritual bipartisanship, one does have to appreciate the humor found in that Pope Benedict has defied expectations.
You gotta love the Pope. I know I do.
He is a fascinating source of quotes – that really speak to the heart of the faithful. He writes and speaks of complex thoughts in a simple manner.
Ultimately, one can see that he would have happily had chosen the life of a university professor. Teach on, your Holiness!
