Spotlight Oscar Win Renews Faith

Like the election of Pope Francis, Spotlight's surprise Oscar win encourages me and renews my faith in humanity and the Holy Spirit.

Let's hope that it focuses increased scrutiny on how our Church first abused power in order to abuse children, and by doing so, the rest of Christ's Mystical Body.

Let's also hope that investigative journalism will also experience a rebirth, looking below the bright, shiny surfaces of carefully constructed fake merit that are now standard operating procedure.
