Where he did not want to go

A unusually good, and unusually fresh, meditation on Pope Benedict’s visit to Ground Zero, and the pope’s visit with the sexual abuse victims, which uses the imagery of St. Peter--who is told by Jesus that the leader of the church will be taken where "you do not want to go." It’s at Pajamasmedia, and written by The Anchoress, authoress of the eponymous blog, in her typically clear style. You can find it here James Martin, SJ
