All well and good lets see what he does with his errant Jesuit brothers of the cloth as in Georgetown or Notre Dame. I’m not too impressed with his approaches dealing with the Argentine government on the moral issues. Bus rides to work and home cooking et all. When I’ve talked to missionaries while fund raising here promoting the faith smack dab in the middle of moslemland and their people are being murdered and the fund raiser (priest) was summarialy dissmissive of moslem activity which amazed and dumbfounded me .I think we have a problem. Worse yet I see this from other sources on the latin side. I envy you being able to participate in rituals and services relatively unchanged since St Pauls time .If I had a an opportiinity to particpate in them I’d be there. Actually I held out hope your guy would make it.
Lets seen what Francis I does with the corruption in the secretariat. If he appoints Ben the 16th to run it watch heads roll. I am happy they took the papacy it out of europe and particularly Italy. I’m weary of the Borgia legacy.
The Borgias were Spanish, not Italian, FWIW.
