“Leadership is a hot topic these days. There is endless commentary about political leadership around the world. Opinion leaders delight in demonstrating that such leaders have feet of clay – that is to say, for all their power and influence, these leaders have some fatal flaw that could bring them down.

We look for good leadership in government, education, healthcare, business, and, yes, the Church.
