Some links

- Listen to Jesuit Thomas Reese gives a talk on Pope Francis and reform in the church here - he tells some good jokes :)

- Speaking of Fr. Reese, today I came upon this 2005 article by John L. Allen, Jr. at NCR about how he was forced from his post at America magazine - Editor of Jesuits' America magazine forced to resign under Vatican pressure

- So what's the pope's new old car look like? Here's a pic of the Renault 4 from Wikipedia ....



- How you can help animals impacted by the flooding in Colorado

- Listen at NPR ... Massive Molasses Spill Devastates Honolulu Marine Life :(

- Much interest in the Vatican's sec. of state mentioning optional celibacy. I would get hopeful about this, but looking back at my pasts posts, I see this idea comes up all the time and nothing has changed ... in 2009 the editors of America magazine wrote about optional celibacy: A Modest Proposal ... Cardinal Christoph Schönborn mentioned optional celibacy in 2010 ... in 2011 the Melkite Catholic Church in the US decided to ordain married men ... etc. Maybe it will be different, now that we have Francis - one can hope :)
