20Jun Pope honors ‘rebel’ priests censured for commitment to poor

The Miami Herald reports that Pope Francis made a pilgrimage to northern Italy on Tuesday to honour two 20th-century parish priests whose commitment to the poor and powerless brought them censure from the Vatican. Francis "delivered a lengthy tribute to the priest, quoting Mazzolari's writings about the need for the church to accompany its flock that Francis himself could have penned."
The account from Vatican Radio has a slightly different emphasis.
The censured of today are the heroes of tomorrow!
