The Good Pope

In 1981, when his name still sounded like an ugly rodent, he got a letter about a priest who didn’t want to be a priest anymore; a priest who’d been convicted of tying up and abusing a couple of boys, among other things.

He studied the issue for a while – FOUR years, to be exact, and finally wrote back, saying: he needed MORE time to study the issue.

Because he had to figure out “the good of the Universal Church.”

I guess the reason it took so long is that there’s no good there.
