Yes, I understood that, hence my comment "Essentially driving catholics to the TLM". However, Fr. Z's initial impression is also posted above. Care to comment on this?
I think what Pope Francis is up to is trying to project, re-project, is an image of the Church as compassionate. He is trying to help people remember (or learn for the first time) that she is actually all about compassion, charity in its truest form.
Yes, that’s a good point. (How did the GOP attempt to wrap themselves in compassionate conservatism work out with the MSM? Will it work for PFI?)
