And, even more, I agree with what one reader writes: “Unlike Pope Benedict, I would not be at all surprised to see Pope Francis publicly offer a traditional Latin Mass some day. He has a deep devotion to Our Lady of Fatima, is said to practice the Five First Saturday Devotions, and prays 15 decades of the Rosary each day. I believe that, after he meets with Pope Emeritus Benedict, reads the 300-page dossier on the Vatileaks scandal, and reads the rest of the Third Secret of Fatima, he will be a different man than he was as archbishop, then cardinal, in Argentina.” Pope Francis strikes me as a man who, once he learns something is the Lord’s will, will simply make it his own.

That was my post at RorateCaeli that he is quoting here. I'm glad to see someone else agreed with that viewpoint.

Your posting grew legs and is now being quoted by one of the top vaticanistas. Kudos!

Like "Nixon in China."

(With the Holy Father's devotion to Our Lady of Fatima, I wonder if we'll see the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart . . . or is it a moot point now?)
