CWN Editor's Note: Father James Martin met with Pope Francis in a private audience on September 30. The controversial American Jesuit has devoted himself to seeking greater acceptance of homosexuals by the Church. An AP story on the papal audience accurately observed: “Since only some of Francis’ private meetings are announced, the implicit message was a public vote of confidence in Martin’s ministry.” (It could be added that AP rarely reports on private papal audiences, so the wire-service report was itself a public-relations success.)
