My last meeting today was with a Diocesan hospital, so an image of Pope Francis seemed appropriate. So, too, because he is demonstrating how to become a transformative figure and he is doing it with such ingratiating charm and grace in a institution most of us would consider resistant to change. Consider the objections the Pope must be meeting when he says the Church must be more inclusive the next time you hear difficult objections from a prospect and feel sorry for yourself. I am not Catholic, but what Pope Francis has begun is inspiring.
