How do you practice humility from the most exalted throne on earth? Rarely has a new player on the world stage captured so much attention so quicklyyoung and old, faithful and cynicalas has Pope Francis. In his nine months in office, he has placed himself at the very center of the central conversations of our time: about wealth and poverty, fairness and justice, transparency, modernity, globalization, the role of women, the nature of marriage, the temptations of power.
Yep, they think he's a lefty
Good news, but it’s partially because they think he is going to move the church farther to the left.
I think Pope Francis has the media bewildered. They keep trying to use him for their own purposes, as no doubt Time Magazine is doing with this choice. But, as this article suggests, let us hope that the Holy Spirit will guide Pope Francis and bring God’s grace back into our world.
Frankly, the only thing that can save our country and the world at this point is prayer, and God’s intervention with a new religious revival, such as our country and the world have experienced from time to time before.
I don’t know why so many Freepers seem to wish that the Pope will fail. We need the Church—and all the other Christian Churches—badly at this point in time. Attacking the Pope, or hoping he will fail, does nothing but side with our common enemies.
Pray for Pope Francis.
