    Acknowledging wrongs of the past is crucial to setting a better course for the future.

    Darkness begets ignorance. Ignorance begets fear. Fear begets hate. Hate begets violence. Violence extinguishes the light.

    It is time to break the cycle.

    i appreciate the sentiment, but it’s early to have all the candles lit.

    While I am no fan of Pius XII, in all fairness we don’t know what he did behind the scenes. He did have to placate Mussolini and later Hitler’s Nazis. Some claim that Pius worked behind the scenes to hide and save many Jews.

    I’d rather believe the writings of Sister Margherita Marchione or Sir Martin Gilbert.

    Let’s conjecture….. If you had been Pope Pius XII what would have been your reaction to the Nazi actions? This calamity hasn’t been ignored…. And if the real Francis did light a menorah….nice touch. So much history “comes out” years later and we’re revolted….. again…tough decision.
