As a Catholic, I have no problem with this. Is this something about which I should be concerned?

It's got my antennae up. It may well be fine - Pope Francis is obviously a humble man. However, thoughts of Jimmy Carter and 70's malaise keep popping into my head. Humility is fine so long as it's not merely the MO of an ineffective leader.

He already cloistered paedophile Cardinal Law, which was a HUGE win in my book. He made an example of someone, as well he should.

If he starts denying communion to liberal, death supporters, that will be a huge positive to me. I’d like to see some excommunications too, but I have a feeling Francis is a bit more of a pacifist. I hope I’m wrong.

If nothing else, it’s refreshing to have a non-European pope for the first time in my lifetime. It feels as if he’s going to take us back to the roots of the church.
