The latest Issue of "The Lutheran" includes a very nice Article on The 50th Anniversary of The Second Vatican Council ...

(My Heart frequently breaks these Days with Rome increasingly rolling-back or simply discarding many of The  Vatican II Reforms ...)

He's every bit as conservative as the last two popes, so no changes there.  But maybe he'll bring about more openness in the inner workings of the RCC, get the laity more involved, stop the coverups, end the "Vatican Bank", etc.


Also, I hope he focuses on poverty and injustice, as his chosen name suggests.

"Conservative" certainly ISN'T anti-thetical to "Reforms" ...



"We shall see ... "

I am intrigued and HEARTENED ...


It thus far APPEARS that Pope Francis is going to HALT and begin to REVERSE the Dismantling of The Vatican II Reforms that was fostered by John Paul II and Benedict XVI  (PLEASE dear God) ...

So far he seems to be hitting all the right notes, at least from my non-RCC point of view.  But time will tell.
