Let me add my own congratulations.
I am especially pleased the man is a Jesuit -- arguably, the best
educators on the planet. I am also deeply impressed by his modesty
and his commitment to the poor. It's wonderful he comes from the
Americas; even better that he comes from the southern half.
Now.....Let's hope he can move some sand grains to make the bricks it
will take to pave a road where Rome ultimately accepts gays, gay
marriage, women at every level of the Church. Priest. Bishop.
Change is always hard; in this case as hard as it gets. Pope Francis,
we wish you well.
Nobody knows this more than Webheads How easy is it to change
practices long-held in your schools?

- Dear Webheads: All this spirited talk about the
new Pope, from Argentina, sparked some VERY
lovely memory buds. For me, the first ones to
light up were easy; my memories of the Jesuits
from Kindergarten to 10th grade, at St
Catherine's, in Ventura, California. Those
Jesuits, most especially the Head Master, have
never left my shoulder. (Especially his comment
"John, you will get along better here when you
understand that the Sisters have all the answers
and the priests have all the questions.)
But I digress.
The second memory bud to light up -- perhaps even
more forcefully than that those from childhood? -
was that I /honestly/ believe one of the more
interesting conversations we /ever/ had during
the Global Learn Day "voyages" was at a "stop" in
Buenos Aires. There, at the St. Andrews Scots
School. we "met" with their headmaster, a Jesuit
from Scotland (hard to imagine a tougher
combination!) by the name of Gabriel Rshaid. In
the next hour or so Gabriel led us all of us down
what my own Jesuit teachers would have called "A
Socratic Path". Like all good conversations,
there were many more questions than "answers'" --
especially regarding some pointed remarks about
the dangers - of the Internet.
My take GLD attracted a LOT of tremendously
thoughtful participants. Gabriel Rshaid was one
of the best.
Here are some links about Gabriel.
Last thought. Today's New York Times David Brooks
had a GREAT article about "Rome" -- and the
choices ahead for Catholic leadership. David is
Jewish, but his intellectual landscape truly
awesome. His piece today is worth savoring.

P.S. I am sending blind copies to Gabriel with
address that I have stored...and found
subsequently. If you Google "Gabriel Rshaid" you
will find him on YouTube, Amazon and as a
Gabriel: Scroll way down and find links what I
am up to. Write us. All Webheads would like to
hear from you; most especially about an Jesuit
from Argentina, who just got as pretty big job in
Kind regards to all -- everywhere.
