(Reader: A Fellow Patriot) Who is Pope Francis?


Reader Post | By A Fellow Patriot

In order to “walk among contemporary challenges, the decisive condition is to maintain a fixed gaze on Jesus Christ, to pause in contemplation and in adoration of his Face. … Indeed, every time we return to the source of the Christian experience, new paths and undreamed of possibilities open up” (Pope Francis, Discourse, 4 October 2014).

“Pope Francis, in his Encyclical Lumen Fidei, treating the connection between the family and faith, writes: ‘Encountering Christ, letting themselves (young people) be caught up in and guided by his love, enlarges the horizons of existence, gives it a firm hope which will not disappoint. Faith is no refuge for the fainthearted, but something which enhances our lives. It makes us aware of a magnificent calling, the vocation of love. It assures us that this love is trustworthy and worth embracing, for it is based on God’s faithfulness which is stronger than our every weakness’ (Lumen Fidei, 53)” (Instrumentum Laboris, 7).

“The Church will have to initiate everyone – priests, religious and laity – into this ‘art of accompaniment’, which teaches us to remove our sandals before the sacred ground of the other (cf. Ex 3:5). The pace of this accompaniment must be steady and reassuring, reflecting a closeness and compassion which, at the same time, heals, liberates and encourages growth in the Christian life” (Evangelii Gaudium, 169).

“He has been on record as describing so-called same-sex “marriage” as “demonic in origin” and he received criticism from the President of Argentina for his statement equating homosexual couples adopting children to “discrimination against children” who have an inherent right to a mommy and a daddy.

In 2010, he campaigned against legislation by the Argentine Government to allow same-sex marriage, though ultimately unsuccessfully, calling it a “real and dire anthropological throwback.” And yet, we also know that Cardinal Bergoglio visited AIDS patients washing 12 of these suffering souls’ feet. He was photographed humbly bowing and kissing one such suffering patient’s foot. Obviously, the good Cardinal’s orthodoxy did not somehow translate into his being pastorally insensitive as is so often the caricature.

He commented on the matter of openly dissenting Catholics receiving communion saying,We should commit ourselves to ‘eucharistic coherence’, that is, we should be conscious that people cannot receive Holy Communion and at the same time act or speak against the commandments, in particular when abortion, euthenasia, and other serious crimes against life and family are facilitated. The responsibility applies particularly to legislators, governors, and health professionals.

This is impressive to say the least. Our Holy Father is already being lambasted as a “radical right-winger” in some circles. And yet, for those who would want to paint him as some good ‘ole American-style neo-conservative, we also know that he has worked closely with the Italian religous movement called “Communion and Liberation,” which also had the backing of both Pope John Paul II and Benedict XVI. This is a movement that seeks to evangelize through impacting the culture from the inside out, focusing to a great extent upon, in the words of our new Pope, “unjust economic structures that give rise to great inequalities.” It is an understatement to say Pope Francis has a heart for the poor completely in line with our Lord’s and the Church’s historical preference for the poor.

We still do not know for sure whether he is taking the name “Francis” in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Francis Xavier or if it is some other Francis. It appears he is following St. Francis of Assisi. We’ve read differing accounts so far. But we know this. As the Cardinal Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Bergoglio refused to live in the bishop’s mansion, choosing a small apartment instead, refused a driver, choosing instead to take the bus to work, and refused a chef to cook his meals, choosing to cook his own meals.”

This all gives me pause.
