Fr. Cekada discerns six key points in Francis' tenure that remain despite the ebb and flow of all the posturing.
Just in case you didn't know, "Pope Francis' Popularity Grows", asserts CNN. So shape up, traddies, and get with the program. The embedded video highlights all the things you're supposed to love.
"Let's 'do worship' without all that ritual stuff, 'cause it just gets in the way," is Francis' message in this Vatican Insider piece, "A Temple is a Place We Gather to Worship God, Not Celebrate a Rite." Get thee behind me, Rubrics?
Marielena Montesino de Stuart theorizes about the real motive for the new Vatican survey on the family in, "The Man with the Keys is not Here."
In this World Jewish Congress article, Francis refers to an SSPX prayer vigil in Buenos Aires cathedral as "aggression", delighting the Jews. Or did he? The Eponymous Flower questions the story.
Hold your nose. Mundabor autopsies some stinky quotations regarding Francis and the Jews in a post titled, "Francis, the Orthodox Jew."
Francis takes a stab at establishing his support of the "hermeneutic of continuity," and lots of Catholics get all excited. Not Louie Verrecchio.
