Pope Francis (not Francis I)...my thoughts.

Well, we have a Pope and his name is Francis...

My first thoughts were and I quote "who?"...I had zero idea of this guy before his election. Did a little research into him, which of course has been reported in the public media....here's a quick bio

I do not worry about anything dogmatic...the Holy Father has no ability to change the Church's teachings on anything, it's a good thing...

That said, I believe that everything the Church does revolves around how she worships. If she does not worship correctly, everything else falls out of order. God first, everything else 2nd in short....And from what I've seen the Liturgy today, I do worry that there will be a de-evolution in the Papal Liturgies....But I will wait and hold judgement...I really believe he (Pope Francis) will be growing into the role, as he is not used to the office.

Let us pray for Pope Francis, that God may perserve him, and give him strength to defeat the enemies of the Church....


  1. I'm praying. This post and your recent post are excellent. I'm trying to hold my comments and observations about many of the comments about our Holy Fathers. I'm glad you and several of my favorite bloggers are so level headed and charitable.

    Gob Bless you Joe!

  2. Thank you Lola :)...I'm trying, but I think I lost it today
