Benedict-Free Monday

I will not say anything negative about Pope Benedict today. But this is from Jeanne at Body and Soul and it was written yesterday, so I am not violating the criticism-free Benedict zone today.

Ono, thanks for posting this -- it articulates something that had been bothering me, and that I hadn't even been able to name.

My best friend's father-in-law was in Auschwitz. He was German. He was (and is) catholic. Resistance may not have been pleasant, but it was certainly possible.

Talmida,

I can't comment because of my self-imposed Monday restriction. But, I hear you.

I find some mitigation in his age at the time.
Some.
I certainly, though, wouldn't want to be judged forever amen by my attitudes, associations, and professed beliefs of my 16 year old self.
I was no Nazi, but I wasn't a gleaming example of Catholic Youth either.
