Pope Francis is a good man. Pray for him. Pray for the weak Catholics who cannot understand what he is saying and for the good ones who want and need more clarity. Pray for those of us who help those who are confused. Pray for more clarity on his part. Pray for those who highlighted things in the media for their own agendas, as these people are in danger of hell.
MY Faith is not reliant on one man unless he speaks from the Chair of Peter. This is a good man who is our pope, but perhaps not as media savvy as he could be. There were really bad popes and the Church survived. He is not bad.
If you want a list of bad popes, here it is: "The Bad Popesis a 1969 book byE. R. Chamberlindocumenting the lives of eight of the most controversialpopes(papal years in parentheses)": thank Wiki:
My Faith is not based on one man, the media or schismatics who will take advantage of such things. My Faith is in Christ, the Church and the long teaching of the Magisterium.
We should not be upset, but helpful in sorting out further misconceptions, as we are all through our baptism to take care of our brothers and sisters in Christ. And, to evangelize….but in truth and not confusion.
A long time ago, an excellent spiritual director of mine told me that where there is confusion there is satan. Well, we know who is in charge of the media and we also know all those in the Vatican press offices are not all saints. We must also realize that not all popes are the same.
Do not idolize a man, pray for him. This pope would not want to be the center of a cult of personality.
