No sale, Francis.
Tradition does not trump Scripture. The testimony of history shows us what happens when a few are "entrusted" with biblical interpretation.
Francis, meet Roy Zuck, author, "Basic Bible Interpretation". It's everyone's responsibility.

(The restoration of the U.S.A. starts with filling the pews at every Bible-believing church.)
I think some miss the mark on Pope Francis words here.
He is speaking against textural criticism method and historical-critical method. He’s saying these methods ignore or cannot include Sacred Scripture as part of and in the context of where it came from and remains - the faith community of Christianity.
If you disagree with this, you’re in the Jesus Seminar category.

*8In his speech to members of the Pontifical Biblical Commission, Pope Francis said the interpretation of the Holy Scriptures cannot be only an individual scientific effort, but must always confront itself with, be inserted within and authenticated by the living tradition of the Church**
Amen! And double Amen!

("With God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26)
The path outlined by Ratzinger, whilst not underestimating the value of scientific findings, reaffirmed the fact that one cannot truly understand the Bible and its texts unless it is through the eyes of faith, in the light of the Church's thousand-year-old history, whilst always taking into account the organic relationship between each of the Bible's books and the Bible as a whole and the message Christians find in it.
Completely untrue...A lie to the followers of the Pied Piper...
The Piper knows that those who read and BELIEVE the bible ultimately leave the Catholic religion...

When the RCC is able to create a human spirit independent from God, then they might make a case that they alone can be the arbiters of His Word once He has provided it.
Until then, He already has a system in place by which we can have fellowship with Him and it is through faith in Christ, not through faith in Peter first.
