If the medium’s still the message, the Vatican PR folks certainly chose the wrong magazine, despite the Pope’s connection with its publishers, to explain the “new” message. The ultra-leftist “America” has been propping up the so-called “theology” of the so-called “99” for 3/4 of a century! No orthodox Catholic will take a word in this article at face-value.
As the Pope says, it's not MEANT for those who already truly believe. In that respect, "America" is the BEST place for this article. He is reaching those who are Catholics in name only, and who have sloughed off belief in a Church they believe is un-sophisticated.
