Off-The-Cuff Comment

Everyone keeps telling us that Francis is so simple, and speaks the language of the people; in the sense that he talks to them in an immediate and direct way, a way they can easily understand and relate to.

Then when the very same Francis makes a mess of things (again! and again!) we are told the masses – and the press – did not understand what he said; because hey, if his words are dissected by a professional theologian he will find a way, with immense effort and many distinguos, to persuade himself that Francis was being orthodox, or otherwise fine.

      The Pope is not the maker of Christian rules, merely the caretaker. If he behaves like Francis it means he is a bad caretaker, not that the rules have changed or must be seen differently.


  2. I DO think that Fr. Longenecker’s comments have some merit. What say thou, Mr. M?
