I wouldn’t expect him to appease either side.

Good. he’s already disappointing the resident snake handler street corner theologians, expecting him to join them in condemning the Church to Hell. As he should.

Nice Cardinal. Predicts no one will like the Pope. He’s already the Pope, elected by this guys fellow Cardinals, let’s judge him on his actions, not some Cardinal that wanted to give a negative interview.

Pope Francis has already had a measurable positive effect on the individual Parishes.

When Pope Benedict abruptly resigned is was quite troubling and the uncertainty of who his replacement would be only added to it. Our Church had masses twice a day for eight days leading up to the vote.

I don’t know anyone who is unhappy with the Pontiff.

Where does he stand with regard to the Liturgy? I recognize and embrace our obligation to the poor - the Obama disciples are doing their worst to divest us of that obligation in the name of the State.

Please indulge me regarding my concern - even obsession - with the Form of our Liturgy. In the deep recesses of the early 1950's my character was formed by tripartite oath-bound sisters and cassocked Latin-speaking priests.

Just my $.02 - I'm real tired of ersatz liturgies and CINO's - will this Pope bring us back?

It’s his special sympathy for Muslims that really bothers me, particularly the illegal alien ones in Italy.

There are no “progressives”, at least not on the left! They keep returning to the failed policies of the past.

BTW, Thank You Rush for (once again) making something I have been saying for years mainstream!

because he abolished the pontifical court – something I am grateful for; it was an anachronistic extravagance

I think Paul VI can claim credit for that.

This is a no-brainer from Cdl. Kaspar (who might want to just hush if he doesn't have anything more thoughtful to say). Everyone wants the Pope (or the President) to do exactly what "I" would do if I were elected. Therefore, everyone will be "disappointed."

There was a posting I read some time ago, that Blessed John Paul II taught what the faith is, Benedict XVI taught what the faith teaches, and now Pope Francis teaches how it is to be lived.

Yesterday my parish priest blessed 3 young persons who are heading to Rio for World Youth Day yesterday. It took place right after daily mass.

I’d rather hear Cardinal Kasper speak more on the intentional confusion in the Vatican II documents.
