Words of Relevance: St. Benedict of Nursia

Today's quote is from St. Benedict of Nursia., the father of Western Monasticism, whose Feast Day is celebrated today:

"He should know that whoever undertakes the government of souls must prepare himself to account for them." 

The leaders of the Progressive Church should take special note of this admonition issued by St. Benedict more than 1500 years ago.

Finally today, we just received this photo of Pope Francis, which should be sent round the world.  I would caption it "Pentecost Redux."  What do you think?
