Thank you, Jim, for pointing this out!! Too often, Pope Francis' words are cherry picked and taken out of context from the big picture.
I’m just a baby Catholic and I probably shouldn’t be commenting at all.
I consider myself to be bilingual (Catholic-Protestant) because I have lots of Catholics in my family, was raised in a Reformed church, and have a lot of Evangelical experience.
I think the bishops of the world, together with the last five popes, have been on a “get more Jesus into Catholic life” kick, or crusade if you prefer. If you’re trained to see the walk with Jesus in everywhere and every thing, the V-II phenomenon makes more sense than it does to 50s Catholics. The opposition seems to hold the position that weekly (at least) Mass and the six sacraments (Holy Orders excludes marriage, and vice-versa) is all the Jesus anybody needs.
Being from a recent Evangelical ecclesial community, I can certainly see the “more Jesus” side’s point. OTOH, I never had the experience of being a cradle Catholic, I more or less “thought my way into the Church”, as they say, so I’m ready to plead guilty to a charge of “you don’t get it”.
