Working from Lyon, France

I recently returned from beautiful Lyon, France, where I worked for a month. It was great to be in France again and I look forward to returning in May. I stayed in a renovated apartment in a 16th century building (in historic Vieux Lyon, a UNESCO world heritage site). It had a unique staircase, which was built without a core.

Pope Francis: Charity is the only acceptable kind of fanaticism

Today, Pope Francis said that the only acceptable kind of fanaticism is that of “charity.”

“Any other type of fanaticism does not come from God, and is not pleasing to him,” Pope Francis stated. “True faith is one that makes us more charitable, more merciful, more honest and more humane … it makes us see the other not as an enemy to be overcome but a brother or sister to be loved, served and helped.”
