A Perfect Pope for Our Times

A Perfect Pope for Our Times

From Odyssey Networks’ Faith on the Record series: Millions of Americans have been responding with adoration to Pope Francis on his high-profile visit to this country. The Pope’s knack for blending the pastoral with the political is why I consider him a genius and one of my spiritual teachers, even though I’m not Catholic. “We can all learn from his approach…Have your faith fully engaged but remember [there’s] dignity to be found among those we disagree with most.” Watch my video for more insight and discussion.



Odyssey Networks tells the stories of faith in action changing the world for the better. Their stories explore a wide range of issues including peace, tolerance, social justice and the environment.
