I See, A Meditation




What the world sees: Pope Francis standing at the Holy Door of St. Peter’s Basilica to inaugurate the Jubilee of Mercy.

What I see: The Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. I am behind him, waiting for the doors to open, to walk through. He is leading the way.

What the Church sees: All see Pope Francis. Some see a great, charismatic leader. Some see a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

What I see: The Magisterial or Teaching Authority of the Church.

What do you see?
