During the recent brouhaha between the Pope and a candidate for U.S. President, I was reminded of a poem I was assigned to memorize when I was in grade school: Robert Frost’s famous poem, “The Mending Wall.” The first line reads, “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall.” Now I will always associate that line with Pope Francis and think rather, “Someone there is that doesn’t love a wall.”
