Good read

I just finished Weigel's quasibiography of the Pope "God's Choice". It was perhaps the most accurate and penetrating analysis of the Church at its current place in time. Weigel proposes curial reform and episcopal reform among the top tasks facing the new pontiff while celebrating Benedict XVI as precisely the person to follow the late pontiff-- all the while managing to cast the petrine ministry in the clearest, most accessibly human terms. I've moved from that text to Moynihan's work on the spiritual life of Benedict XVI, "Let God's Light Shine Forth". They should offer fascinating foils to one another; I'll let you know how it goes.
