And here's to you, Christine Amanpour, for providing us with the most... um... unusual insight on the current doings in Rome. The sage of CNN opined:
The real question, of course, is how the Church will keep itself relevant in the centuries to come, or even in the next generation.
Amanpour made this comment from her vantage point in Rome, where the largest crowd in human history (composed mostly of people younger than she is) has gathered for an event that will command the attention of the entire planet. It takes a special kind of reporter to see the crowds, the outpouring of emotion, the tributes from world leaders, the fascination with ritual-- and conclude that Catholicism is becoming irrelevant.
