In  the middle ages it was thought  Pope could not be wrong in fact according to the dogma the pope is preserved from the possibility of error. He could in fact speak and possibly write nothing but the truth. I think of this when I remember the pope tweeting Is a papal tweet infallible? Have we become that casual with communication?  What has happened to our sense of the power of words?  The ancient Hebrews believed the Torah so sacred that when a rabbi went to read it they would tie a rope around his waist in case he was overwhelmed by the power of the word. Have we given up on the power of words to affect our live and our being? Have we become so dead to information that every word is mute?  Image
