He does seem to be more concerned with the Christ, rather than the doctrine of the church. It's quite a breath of fresh air!

This is the kind of positivity that will turn people back to Christianity. Not the hatred stuff.

The Pope is to scrap the Vatican Constitution and have a new one written. The plan calls for giving more direct power to local dioceses to make decisions on their own without needing Rome's approval. The Pope will also no longer appoint the head of the Italian Conference of Bishops, thus removing himself and The Vatican from direct involvement in Italian politics.

Just curious... it states a council of 8 but in the picture there are 9 besides the Pope. Who is the extra man?

Indeed!!It is more then shamefull!

The Pontiff visited Assisi today on the feast of St.Francis and again dropped his prepared speech for an impromptu one..:

Pope in Assisi: Christians must strip themselves of worldliness

Papal Mass draws thousands in Assisi

Assisi: the Pope and the poor

Love the sinner, hate the sin. Christianity doesn't teach anything other than that.

Frankly, I prefer how HH phrased it "Who am I to judge" which is contrary to how so many Christians view their fellow man.

I am not a Christian, leave alone a Catholic.. Just as an occasional observer, I fing Pope Francis is a bit too leftist.. I guess many Conservatives are not going to appreciate his going out of the way.. JMO..

I'm Jewish, but my paternal grandmother is a staunch and very conservative Catholic, and she's not amused by The Pope's actions.

But I think His Holiness is too much progressive.

Pope Francis is not "leftist", he's a Jesuit, and they're the academic backbone of the Catholic Church- the educated and the educators.

His reforms are also badly needed and are going a long way towards safeguarding the church and protecting it after its reputation was badly damaged.
