I was proud of The News Tribune printing so beautifully the life story of Father "Bix" Bichsel. He so well lived the life Jesus wanted us to live - to love not only those who agree with you, but to embrace those who disagree with you. That explains how people who did not approve of his actions still loved him. It is hard to reject being loved.
I hope Pope Francis reads your articles about Father Bix. If ever there was a saint, Father Bix showed us the way.
