The beheading of John the Baptist
Here, and here. In contrast to here, where Mark Shea and some of his regulars make it clear that if anything happens to Pope Francis, it will be over the broken, bloody reputation of his accusers. On the day in which we remember the slaughter of the messenger of God's Incarnate Word, Mark's ministry is a stark reminder of how easily a Christian ministry can become everything the Christian Faith warns against.
