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?

Don’t expect improvement of liturgies under this pope, but you may see it under certain bishops.
BXVI helped ameliorate the problem. JPII was more interested in evangelization. Francis is all about love for the poor.
Straightening out the mess is a long-term project. It will take generations to repair.

I think liturgy is driven at the Diocesan level more than by the Pope. I agree with Jeff Chandler that it doesn’t seem to be an emphasis for Pope Francis. However, he’s been Pope only a few months. He couldn’t have done everything everyone wants in that time period, even if he wanted to!
Here in my little Latin American liturgical backwater, the hermanas charismaticas are taking up lace mantillas; make of that what you will. One of the dear ladies looks just like the Queen of Spain.
