#2 -  Pope Francis by Debby Bird, Reston, Va. (Oil Paint on Canvas) - "I woke my two year old and my four year old up early from their nap on March 13th, 2013. We sat on the couch watching the news of white smoke and waiting. We snacked on lolly"Popes" and "Pope"corn. My son did not want me to step away from the TV. "Mom don't miss it." When the announcement came and Pope Francis humbly greeted the world, I knew what my next painting would be. Now my son walks past the 24" x 36" painting hanging at "St John Neuman" Church in Reston, Virginia and proudly announces 'Mom that's your painting of Pope Frances'"

    Ex-Catholics and many whostayed were nuseated not only by the rapes perpetrated by Catholic priests but also by the complicity and cover-ups, sometimes grossly immoral and irresponsible, perpetrated by almost every bishop in the United States. Those bishops are still running the show. That’s disgusting.

    And those bishops continue to pretend that the scandal was all about bad priests, rather than bad bishops.

  • I liked #37 because of its radiant, contemplative, loving expression and the skill of the artist.

    In a long life I’ve lived in 5 different dioceses and met very many priests, most admirable. But the most grievous fault I’ve observed in some, including at least one bishop, is injustice/arrogance — appalling injustice — expressed in falsehoods, insults, and other bad behavior.
