The Pope Francis effect

A wave of sadness washed over me when I overheard several moms discussing the selection of Pope Francis as the Time magazine Person of the Year

Although the women were pleased a “good man” now heads the Roman Catholic Church, there was an undercurrent of concern: Will my child grow up to be a kind and compassionate person like the new Pope?

Their comments revealed that these savvy moms know there is more to life than the latest technology, but they also realized they don’t know how to communicate timeless values to their kids.
