A couple of years ago I wrote a blog post on the image of sheep. I can’t remember when I first heard the line or who said it, but it’s had me chuckling and nodding in agreement ever since.
The problem with some shepherds is that they think we are dumb sheep.
This week I followed up on this theme in a blog post for The National Catholic Reporter. I have hopes in our new head shepherd. Pope Francis not only shows himself to be a leader that encourages dialogue and going out to the people, but he is encouraging other bishops to do the same.
