Response to Humanist_Activist (Reply #33)

Fri Jan 1, 2016, 10:26 PM

38. I get my information from the newspapers. I like Pope Francis.

the Pope has the bully pulpit of all bully pulpits. His real importance is symbolic.

He is refocusing the Church on service, which is the essential Christian message, service to the people, not the people serving the institution of the church, which was certainly Benedict's emphasis. He leads by example in his own modest lifestyle.

He is also attempting to reform the insular and corrupt Vatican bureaucracy, quite a challenging task unto itself.
