The in-flight press conference: little on religion

The Holy Father has followed his now established tradition of holding a press conference on the airplane on the way home from an international visit. Once again I have read the transcript and am astonished at how little the world’s greatest religious leader speaks about religion. Even more disturbing is how little the world’s most visible and vocal Christian leader ever speaks about Jesus Christ, and even more disappointing is how little the leader of the world’s Catholics speaks about anything specifically Catholic.
