Good news these days is far too rare, so when it comes, it's great. Upon the one-year anniversary of the election of Pope Francis as pontiff, it is inspiring to see how much he has done in so little time and what a blessing he has been for the Roman Catholic Church and so many others around the world who aren't Catholics. Polls show the pope has not so much changed people's behavior but opened their minds. He has taken on controversial subjects but not in a divisive way, only to ask that people refocus away from social culture wars and on to the needs of the neediest instead.
Good deeds, indeed.
