At Millennial, Wendy Torres explains what Pope Francis means when he talks about the "throwaway culture." Could any of us endure such a life for even a few days?

At USAToday, Kirsten Powers warns evangelical voters that Trump is not their man.  

At Bloomberg, Melinda Henneberger on how American politicos get Pope Francis wrong. 

At Patheos, Sean Connolly looks ahead to the pope's visit to the US. 

Do you see a common thread in the four pieces? Pope Francis is going to be dominating the religious news wires from here thru the visit, and as we get closer, I suspect the Holy Father will also come to dominate the secular news too. I can't think of a better antidote to the all-Trump-all-the-time coverage we have seen the last month.
