Pope Francis told Poland's Catholic clergy Saturday that the key challenge of the Gospel is that it remains unfinished -- that Jesus looks to us to "take concrete care" of his wounds by serving our brothers and sisters, "those close at hand and those far away, the sick and the migrant."
In a Mass with the country's bishops, priests and religious at a shrine dedicated to the memory of their hero-Pope John Paul II, the pontiff said the Gospel "still has many blank pages left."
"It remains an open book that we are called to write in the same style, by the works of mercy we practice," the pope continued, asking the clergy: "What are the pages of your books like? Are they blank?"
His refusal to release his tax returns breaks with tradition and makes no sense.
If there is nothing to hide, Trump wins. In fact, he wins-wins-wins.
For one, he could cut off a strong line of attack by Democrats. Hillary Clinton has already released her tax returns, going back to 1977.
Second, Trump could put to rest the many swirling rumors to which he seems magnetized.
Third, releasing his tax returns could up his presidential cred.
So why hold back? Why not throw everyone's supposed lies in their faces and get a likely boost in the polls, too? Because Trump, despite his insistence to the contrary, has likely made the calculation that he wouldn't win if the American public was to see his tax returns. His decision, then, appears to be based less on principle and reason, as he advertises, than fear of losing. read more
