The Holy Father

I'm just going to rant a bit.

    Can someone explain to me (aside from the obvious, as I see it anyway) why the Holy Father would lead us down the road of "de-emphasis of hot button social issues"?  These last two weeks have left me baffled as to why, truly why a man, elected Pope, can say and evidently turn the face of the church so far away from its theological traditions.  I know why, in my heart and soul I know why, but like I said, I'm just going to rant.

I'd rant more but I've got to get back to work.

Like minds think alike. I'm just hoping this is yet another misquote or mis-interpretation by the press, printing what it wants to hear, rather than what was said.

I would like to sign on with DO NOT BE ANXIOUS also.


A very many of the Pope`s Gestures {or as he likes to be called Bishop of Rome } from his 1st night coming out to the faithful, until just yesterday, strongly suggests, that Bishop of Rome; Pope Francis is the embodiment of the conciliar Church. A new theology, A new approach, a {NEW}oops better enlightened church.
When Catholics in the past have written about a BREAK with tradition: A intro of a new Church {sadly some sedevacantist have fallen by this idea}after the council , they were looking at a Church they did not recognize. I think we will now get to walk in their steps, by looking at a Pope we do not recognize.

Catholics that have been fed by the TLM in the Catholic Church from the 1980s until today, have seen, and enjoyed a check in the madness, that followed the council during the 1970s into the early 1980s.

I suspect we will now suffer as our more recent Catholic forefathers did.
