The new Pope's dialogue with an atheist
 
I wish more people could talk like this, especially those who are fundamentally in disagreement.

And you think that mystics have been important for the Church?
"They have been fundamental. A religion without mystics is a philosophy."

Do you have a mystical vocation?
"What do you think?"

I wouldn't think so.

"You're probably right. I love the mystics; Francis also was in many aspects of his life, but I do not think I have the vocation and then we must understand the deep meaning of that word. The mystic manages to strip himself of action, of facts, objectives and even the pastoral mission and rises until he reaches communion with the Beatitudes. Brief moments but which fill an entire life."

I'm somewhat troubled by his recommendation that everyone pursue their own version of good via their conscience. I'm currently reading the bio of Rudolf Hoess, the Commandant of Auschwitz. He was clearly pursuing the good of his conscience and exterminating Jews. Not something I want to encourage.

And politics?
"Why do you ask? I have already said that the Church will not deal with politics."
We shall see.
