“No one who has followed this pope and understands his deep faith and the weight of Church teaching and tradition in his approach to any of these hot issues could really think that he is going to make any substantial changes.”

The Church is being attacked from both within and without. Those within fall into two extremes: ultra liberal and ultra traditional (with the emphasis on “ultra”.
Humility and full truth cannot be found in either group.
