Someone provided statistics on the large number of popes who came from Milan or Venice, recently. Scola has served in both.

family is the top value for 84 per cent of Europeans, before work, family, friendship, religion and politics.

His writings are interesting...even if I don’t understand them all. Here’s his take on Obama’s speech to Muslims”

“I’m curious to hear from participants in the Oasis meeting what effect the words of the American president had on the populations of the Middle East, especially the Christian minorities. His speech seemed to me very political. It was extremely lucid in indicating the challenges that the United States must confront, decisive in suggesting certain changes in direction, and even audacious in favoring a greater role for regional actors. Nonetheless, it seems to me that the arguments offered in support of a ‘new beginning’ between Muslims and the United States are fragile, and some historical readings were distorted to suit the necessities of the moment. Obama was forced to pass over some of the points of greatest friction. It was an understandable choice from a tactical point of view, but it can’t hold up for very long.”
