    I may disagree with him, vehemently on much of Church Policy.. but I cannot deny, in any way that he has done more good for that organization then anyone remotely imagined.  

    He came in and has absolutely demolished expectations and changed the level of discussion.   Turning out a German bishop and turning his home into a soup kitchen/homeless shelter.   Auctioning off items to raise money for shelters/etc.

    This is the kind of 'help the poor' attitude I wish there was more of.

    •  Second only to John XXIII so far (2+ / 0-)

      Have to say that Pope Francis is turning out to be second only to John the XXIII for his attempt to re-focus the church on care of the poor and needy rather than its obcession with abortion and defeating same sex marriage.  That obcession has only driven away Catholics, particulary younger ones in the West and caused more pain and suffering to Church members, their families and those outside of the Church.

      Could there be a vatican III on its way?   Keep it up Pope Francis.
