Need a pope with a mindset of about the 12th century. Too bad he didn't name himself Urban the Xth
There is a fictitious Urban X in Voltaire's famous anti-clerical novel Candide, the supposed father of the old lady who becomes part of the group following Candide on his adventures. A Jesuit provincial in South America also figures in Candide, and Pope Francis was a Jesuit provincial earlier. So Voltaire must be spinning in his grave.
I’m thinking perhaps Pope Francis will be just what the Catholic Church needs, a pope who will be frank. ;)
“frank: Open, honest, and direct in speech or writing, esp. when dealing with unpalatable matters.”
