President of the world greetings unwashed -- rules I am now in total and absolute control as Joseph Rudolph I demand complete servitude at exactly three cookies of all mapped out. They have something to say to me pretty damn sure Laura and I have something to -- -- -- I am very basic let's get one thing straight this is my show and it's a serious intellectual our discussion and wanna keep it that way he's -- I don't see what the problem is Thomas a wonderful man each local. How -- -- the best men have a Tom Bauerle. He's obviously some sort of Superman I just need to know if he has any shortcomings it'll make me feel better news radio 930 WPP and that's not -- voice -- voice. Michael who here. Back again. -- know your book and Tom barrel but he's not here. On the studio. Tournament. He will be back on Monday I'm here in his place until Friday. And today it was a very interesting day. I gotta tell you something I am in no mood for anything. -- -- incredibly bad mood. Program news and whenever I'm in a bad news. I wanna -- priest. I'm a terrible. But I tell you what I was very pleased today. To -- time magazine. Named the Pope Pope Francis as person of the year. It was you know. Really he didn't really have any competition we're looking at president of Siri Jeff visa is the Amazon founder it queens. Miley Cyrus the worker. The list was ignore -- addressed included even Barack Obama -- Making him person of the year again would be like calling the Buffalo Bills team of the year. Absolutely ridiculous but there were some interesting options Edwards note in the an -- -- some people like him some people don't. Person year but apparently neither -- time magazine. They named -- France's. Persevere and you know what that -- That makes this whole person of the year thing actually means something for once. What's behind knows what's what's what's Pope Francis all about you know what I'm gonna toppling trees. Father John Mack from Christ the king seminary welcome to the show thanks for our column in. What is up about -- Tell me what this means that this is a pop culture thing that. The person of the year but it's actually important that they named the -- isn't. I think it is. The first thing that that struck me and I and I as others earlier in the day. Is the remarkable thing that happened really over the last nine months. From mid February and Joseph Ratzinger. Pope Benedict. Announced that. He was going to be leaving his position. To the conclave and this election for the first time in very long time European. -- openness sort of an unknown well to a lot. Regular post a lot has happened in this. Particular period of time and I. And I think. One. First moments in which she was out on the it looked overlooking a street Peter's square. I'm in that evening -- March. And he first looked almost eighties. And and and then now you know the very simple. Greeting that he is. Went and and asking people to Greg for him as he had done. Throughout this whole time as the archbishop -- -- -- It was apparent that that his approach. Was going to be somewhat different. I I think it's significant because there's something about. -- as much about his actions. As in his words he he has recently about an apostolic exhortation called me of the joy that gospel but -- actions. And you know that goes from it it -- -- batons to beat -- worldview today. That but in terms of how user approached people and and and how he has. Approaching his understanding of being a pasture. It has really kind of captivated people's interest. I agree a couple days ago you know people. You're in the position I am muses what a lot of stick -- alignment. -- from blocks and what are. Oh you're a master of social media from February master. Icu everywhere. FaceBook. Twitter everything I mean especially on what is it foursquare. I'm competing with you to be mayor of most of these two. At the. But. At. But what somebody somebody wrote a comment I'm I'm one of the art. Yeah I wish that I would shut -- -- may want to become Catholic. And I thought pollard's disorder. People's incomes under would be captivated now. I'll be honest that you I think he has his message is provocative and challenging. -- He approaches. I hit ministry in his understanding -- ministry very much in terms of mercy. Which at the same thing that jumped on right. You know but. There's something about how are. In which. Just and it an especially in -- here in it it I am. -- certain social media say that this as halt. As captivated. And captured inability to be able to communicate in those. Or should he little things he has on Twitter. -- Epic 440. Character. I tweaked it in which these these difference. Phrases that he he's Kamal -- have that beautiful -- -- -- -- on its over the summer the acquisition rocks. Well the North African. Migrants who many times not in great numbers. Those dealerships. Crashes they're trying to get to freedom -- -- northern Africa. And he came up with that raised the globalization indifference. And and really challenge our -- Italy but really arrest of that you sort sort of a deeper understanding. And it deeper -- it -- immunity. Well you know father tell you I'm a convert I converted in 2000 even -- I was baptized. As a baby went off my parents to -- a -- acted in 2000. And I've paid attention since then I've been reading what the different -- -- pastors have told me to read this. Hope is action he's not just challenging society he's challenging the churches and he's. He's asking all of us to think a lot more about what we do. He's he -- And I have to think in terms of that challenge. Well those cardinals were together in the conclave before they had before they actually -- -- -- actually. And they have their conversations with one another. And they sort of -- I'll look at what each was going to be about an -- interventions in terms of where they are pictured is going to be there was something about this particular. From Argentina. Who. I can't captivated bear interest realizing that perhaps. There was -- complacency that it sent him. And sort of things need to be shaken up not just shaking up of people. But they're shaking up perhaps in the structure. Which by its very nature structures or sometimes. Tried it and fine. The ministry of the church and the activity that we need structure in terms of order. But if it is to structure. Becomes. Priority over god. Then it is well he -- Almost like out there. So I think -- -- -- Auburn and current indication. Early on when he when he chose. -- calling to glutamate. Some wags call beginning at -- -- cardinals. Who are serving -- sort of an inner cabinet. And international and her camp and there was no indication that he was serious. And not just giving lip service says she called -- meeting like every couple months. And trying to put into place. The necessary renewal structures so that. The center of the church would should be secure we're better at -- -- The entire church including the culture. And I think that. -- and -- not a perfect portfolio when you wrong and then when he was chosen as the old. -- interest -- first words that he used on the balcony. That you referred to stop the -- or. Which is of course deposition in which he holds. Which is then part of it the understanding that we count as your personal shoppers. And that he he comes with a very much of a local mindset. But there's something about it. That is speaking to people in the church. Particularly. The unjust. Then the cops aren't local church which she is getting the intention I believe. Just about everybody. I you know talking to a lot of greens that feeling it. Is that there's trees this particular trees this. We now the hole and it's been chosen as person of the year stirs up with a plan a desire to become a better. Well you know. Words have consequences. They really do win. And are up by it I'm sure you've read the time article it's actually beautifully written and aunt and and the quotations the best writing in the peace. Is the quotations of the Pope himself. And and the way that he uses language for example com. When he when he says he's quoted saying of women who consider abortion because of poverty rate he says who can remain unmoved before such painful situations. Of gay people he says if homosexual person is of goodwill and is in search of god I am no one to judge. Those -- such. Beautiful. Things to say from coming from someone who opposes what this we're gonna -- the people but -- what they're doing the people that are -- -- talking about it's almost. It it it's it's -- it's -- never seen anything like it. We do I but neither and I've been in -- ministry over twenty years. Yeah and others certainly has. There's but certainly excitement rampant excitement and other crimes or does she stay. And and and choosing. Of the pole for the area OPEC and all the that would go around it yet but they're there was this sense of art. -- -- -- -- And I'm sort of one voice and it Somalis. That that somehow the gospel. Which is entrusted to assist in that nonchalance. All of a sudden it is. There's a lightly it is true. Not that there wasn't before but there's there's like sparks that are. Sort of enemy aiding and again captivate. Me the imagination. Went away and now Benedict the sixteenth and talk about the European -- Asian EP put it in terms of I'll read proposing is gospel which is what I think friends -- in every proposing of the gospel is not just sort of thing. Think a lot of words although the words are certainly important. And it's. -- -- incredible ability with the language but yet. To his action it kind of movies that his activity moved out emerges from. His relationship with god in -- should -- -- within the scriptures. Well father why is. That this pop culture bird contest that time person of the year why is that important. When it when they choose someone. When they choose tempo wise a wise and important to the church. Well I think it indicates. You know sometimes the person of the year you're just. You're not quite sure it is about being famous or notorious you know its third user is is that -- What what it what the person of the year I think everybody at the moment and really it is snapshot. It is our shot in the moment the -- is where we are. -- this is describing who we are and where we are cultural. And and what is it that we out of Ellen. And kept in terms of the value that informs the type of decisions that we make and that what we see in -- terrible and perhaps. What this election up hope for answers. It sort of does is it it perhaps return us back to an essential. I don't know human relationships that it is our our very important to all of us. But sometimes there easily lost in the midst of all the above in the technology in all of you forget we're dealing with. People in a real people and I think what this does is that the and the man who it is a priest and the dresses and white. It stopped I'll get attention. Not because he's brought new attention to themselves. Is that he's trying his intentions -- brought our attention to something which is on themselves but also experienced here in March. In the -- you repeat. That's what I think he did. And you heard picture winners are ways in which he would he wouldn't. It would in relationship with with people's life and the person of the year sort of elevate before it. This is what we are thinking now in this sort of what we're valuing it is time. So that's why it someone's going and would like why -- you -- and its service as well I'm not sure that that that that's necessarily. A good and valuable or virtuous thing I can. This is saying perhaps there's some type of appealing to overrule. A renewed hope. In terms of what this one individual you think about it it's just one guy is one individual is able to do to stir up. In interest in the other whoever that others your neighbor. Person across the street -- and your work with summit here -- Amelie somebody like somebody or not we don't care about what always in terms. All of our relationship with god with both confidence and with -- It's really quite something a father thank you very much for spending time with us on this number to be talking about this during the show I I think it's remarkable. I really appreciate your perspective. And Osce and mass on Sunday. You. OK I promise you I will be to thank you very much that's father John Mack of Christ the king seminary.

Person of the year. The Pope news is someone I have a lot of respect for. I not just that McCafferty's. Tremendous guy I mean did you know that Pope Francis. Was a nightclub bouncer. Did you know he was a janitor. And then some kind of chemical engineers like that and what really really think makes me. A lot of the bouncer. He was he's literature teacher the literature to -- with which explains why he's so artful with his words I really appreciate that it. I'd like reading a win win when the writing news is is well done and so few people -- this will likely if you wanna really good article go to. Time's person of the year. Article why put up on politics and why that met my idea. My blog. I read a 3.2 1000000000 articles every morning when I wake up and put the top 45 articles I think you should read. Injury interest in New York in national politics. On my blog politics and -- dot net in this persevere articles want wanna put up the first -- it's really. A beautifully written article it's it's really insightful and if you have any curiosity about the person of the year every acre -- to be about the person chose. I really recommend you read. I just you know a nightclub bouncer is person of the year. A nightclub bouncer and that's something I gotta pay the neighborhood where he is from I I spent some time ET's. The reporter's year in Argentina and and in points and been back several times cents. What a terrible place people living in garbage to the street is absolutely piled high with garbage up and down and it never really gets better. And somehow or another man up from that squalor. Is now Pope -- Catholic Church. It's an amazing thing it's a jury that that. That probably John Mack from crisis can seminary told us about an incredible journey and now he's taking the church incredible journey. And maybe maybe this pop culture person of the year thing turns into something that's good for the Catholic Church good for. The nation good for the world but I'll tell you I gotta I gotta read these few here's who he woods. Is that. He is competing with. Miley Cyrus for person of the year. I I I have Bashar Asad president Syria how peacekeepers. Maybe bomber of the murder of the year. Jeff these -- -- Amazon founder. New Hampshire Ted Cruz Texas senator nope not interest did the guys -- -- not not a not sharp he's and Marxist. Miley Cyrus a singer come on give -- -- -- -- -- I enjoyed your.
