Not Indifferent to Indifference

In last Friday’s All Things Catholic Mr. John L. Allen Jr. noted a recent book. In the main it suggests “that selective memory underlies Americas ambivalence on immigration.” Mr. Allen also recalled and summarized the witness of Pope Francis on behalf of the “roughly 20,000 people who have died trying to make the crossing [from Africa and the Middle East into Europe] and to show compassion for those who survived.” Mr. Allen noted reaction to the pope’s “penitential act” included the author of the recent book at the top of his column.
