Look who shows up in prison

Pope John XXIII at Regina Coeli Prison, Dec. 26, 1958

"Because you could not come to me, I came to you."

That's what much of ministry is about, isn't it? Not waiting around for others to come, but setting out on the journey and discovering Christ along the way.

Has it been so long since we have had that kind of pope? What a novel idea--lol...

Well, there was that 33-day pope with the infectious smile. And have you noticed that no one has published "The Wit and Wisdom of Pope John Paul II" or one for Benedict XVI. Telling, I think!
