The Asian Pope Francis

By

Last thursday, the Divine Word Seminary Tagaytay, in partnership with XVD Association (former SVD seminarians) and the lay society of St. Arnold Janssen, sponsored a “Dinner for the Missions.” The event marked the 50th anniversary of the Tagaytay institution and featured a conversation between Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle and John L. Allen Jr., a 16-year veteran analyst of Vatican affairs for CNN and presently associate editor of the Boston Globe. Allen has been described as “the journalist other reporters (and some cardinals) look to for the inside story on how all the Pope’s men direct the world’s largest church.” By coincidence, Thursday was the first anniversary of Jorge Bergoglio’s papacy.

‘Répondez s’il vous plaît’

By

In many countries, when the president or chief executive invites you to his place for a formal sit-down dinner, it is considered a great honor and privilege rarely declined except for very serious reasons. This is even more so when the dinner is to honor a visiting head of state or government with whom we have the best of relations.
