In this “Italian summer lull” edition of Francis Watch, we examine the month of August in the non-pontificate of Jorge Bergoglio. We begin by discussing the “canonization” of Teresa of Calcutta and why she is exactly the right sort of “saint” for the Novus Ordo and for Bergoglio.

Bishop Sanborn and Father Despósito go on to discuss the alleged new Eighth Work of Mercy (much like the missing Luminous mysteries), a new dicastery focused on migrants, Francis’ latest video conference appearance, Ratzinger’s complaint about jet lag, and the new John Paul I museum.
