Good article by Pope Francis

I saw commentary noting that the Pope is less of a religious fanatic than the US Supreme Court (love this). I've also seen people who claim to be Catholic attack Frances for being "anti-American." 

Pope Francis: A Crisis Reveals What Is in Our Hearts

Of particular note:

"When I got really sick at the age of 21, I had my first experience of limit, of pain and loneliness. It changed the way I saw life. For months, I didn’t know who I was or whether I would live or die....

"The pandemic has reminded us that no one is saved alone. What ties us to one another is what we commonly call solidarity. Solidarity is more than acts of generosity, important as they are; it is the call to embrace the reality that we are bound by bonds of reciprocity. On this solid foundation we can build a better, different, human future."
