Since Pope Francis became Pope, I’m hearing more talk and higher volume talk on sin; we are all sinners; this is exactly why we need the saving Grace of God through His Son Jesus Christ.
Following the teaching of the Catholic Church is itself repentance. Being a devout Catholic is not easy, at least not over the long term.
Actually the author’s point is not what Francis is saying but what those with sinister motives will “interpret” him to say. The “Spirit of Francis” will come to replace the Spirit of Vatican 2 as a rationale to “open the windows” and let in some fresh air.
He talks about the still incomplete work of JPII and BXVI being undone not by Francis but by those who think that only they know what he means.
I actually agree with many of this points.
