Pope Francis mixes his metaphors — or something — or his writers do . . .

Francis in Sunday’s homily, where he “parsed the gospel of the day”:

“However, it’s not enough to receive the light, one must become light. Every one of us is called to receive the divine light to manifest it with our whole life.”

What is he talking about? To receive it, you have to be it? That so?

Sounds like Yogi Berra.

A national COVID-19 lockdown? Pritzker, are you insane?

It’s “necessary”?

Reminds me of what once was said in Vietnam: “It became necessary to destroy the village in order to save it.” Or to update: It’s necessary to destroy America’s economy in order to save the country.

Meanwhile, Chi Sun-Times offers in run-of-paper “analysis”:

Gov. J.B. Pritzker ordered a statewide disaster proclamation on March 9 — when Illinois had just four confirmed cases of the coronavirus. Since then, he’s evolved into a national leader on the issue.

Instant fame, apparently.
