Pope Francis: Hero or Heretic & Bowling

Hi all - As I mentioned in my note from a few days back, the third Saturday of the month will be a slightly different format.

We'll have a discussion at a later time than usual (5 - 7) and, for those who'd like to enjoy some additional fellowship, move on to bowling just down the street at US Bowling in the Landmark area of Alexandria. 

Hope to see you there.

    Rumor has it Lensi, you have quickly become quite the expert bowler. I understand you made two strikes in a row! Well done!

      Hilarious! If you only knew. I got more points (or whatever they are called) in that one round than I did the 9 before it! It was when Dee illuminated the game for me that I came in to my own (38 points for the game...hehe). I enjoyed it tho. I'm game for the next one.

    "..he has targeted the scandal-prone and notoriously secretive Vatican Bank: He appointed a commission to investigate how it operates, hired secular financial firms to do a third-party investigation of its practices, and recently replaced almost all of the cardinals on its advisory council with a new group to oversee much-needed reforms.... Perhaps the pope’s most significant decision to date was his choice of 19 Catholic leaders ... By shifting power away from Italy and Europe, the pope is developing a hierarchy that more accurately represents the realities of the worldwide Catholic Church.... ...he moved swiftly to remove Bishop Tebartz-van Elst, dubbed "Bishop Bling," ...replaced the American arch-conservative Cardinal Raymond ...In a similar gesture,...Francis was distancing himself from the ultra-conservative Varela..."
