George also commented on the Pope’s outreach to Eastern Churches, a trait that he said few people have noticed. As archbishop of Buenos Aires, Pope Francis served as Ordinary of Eastern-rite Catholics in Argentina, who lacked their own ordinary.

“Relations with those Churches, especially in the Middle East, is very important, especially in a time when Christianity is beginning to disappear from the Middle East because of political problems,” George stressed.

While many of you here in the west may not yuet recognize the timeliness of this, one need only look towards Europe to see what awaits us in another few years. There are villages in Syria where the entire christian population has now been eradicated. Ethnic cleansing. Today, Syria ... tomorrow, the US.

Perhaps all the various splinter groups of the RCC need uniting. He will never bring those who have been given biblical faith anywhere near Rome. On the contrary, we invite any still in that organization to swim the Tiber the other direction...into the light of Jesus Christ, alone. That is, if He permits.

Pope Francis shows us that there is not a “divide between liberal Catholic issues and conservative Catholic issues,” Ferguson stressed. Rather, he teaches us that there should be a “unity of the whole - that we defend the voiceless whether that’s the poor immigrant or the unborn.”

Daniels told CNA that Pope Francis’ election “shows that the Catholic Church doesn't fit into familiar left/right categories.”

Nice that somebody finally admits it publicly...
