In a Dark World, a Spark of Hope

The Methodist Biblical scholar said,  "You know what I thought of when Pope Francis moved to clean up the Vatican Bank?"
"Jesus throwing the moneychangers out of the Temple?" said the Presbyterian theologian.
"Exactly," the Methodist replied. "It's just another example of his trying to have his church follow the teachings of Our Lord."
"He's appointing new cardinals. I don't think he wants to have miscreants like Roger Mahoney seen as representing his church."
"Of course this means we'll have to make sure our people are listening more to the words of Jesus than their own egos," he said.
"Every year I watch that old Cary Grant movie, 'The Bishop's Wife' to make sure I don't forget."
"Maybe Francis is here to lead the way for all of us."
