Persistence pays off
There's tons of truth in the axiom "Past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior."
Yet when a pope is picked, many predict - based solely on hope and ignoring considerable evidence - that he'll "be better" on abuse than his predecessor.
That's why we are so grateful to the amazing researchers at BA.org who dug deep into how Pope Francis dealt with clergy sex abuse and cover up cases in Argentina. What they found is very disturbing.
And their work, though seemingly ignored at first, is finally gaining traction.
In the past few weeks, more and more news outlets and bloggers are citing this important research.
Let this be a reminder to all of us: when our efforts don't seem to bear fruit, it's best to be patient and fight pessimism. It may take weeks or months or sometimes years. But usually, our hard work is noticed and effective.
Congrats & thanks to BA.org
