5:34 pm
things like that." a staggering papal denunciation, and it came after a week of francis in mexico, again and again, preaching a highly charged political message. like those scenes in juarez, a few feet from the u.s. border, francis giving his blessing undocumented immigrants in the u.s. and then demanding that more be done for all desperate migrants.
