I mention this because of the weird remarks I am seeing from people who would like to pretend that until now the church and its popes have been negligent of the poor and the marginalized. These are sentiments that can only come from a place of ignorance or willful malice.
Speaking of papal humility, while I am certainly admiring of and challenged by the examples of Pope Francis, it's worth mentioning that Benedict seems content to be maligned, misunderstood or even cast aside for the sake of Christ and his church, and the workings of the Holy Spirit. That's a pretty admirable sort of humility, too, every bit as self-abnegating and Christlike as the willingness to live simply and wash the feet of others. Worth pondering all of our examples of papal humility, this Triduum, don't you think?
