Two years ago yesterday, Papa Francesco, (a.k.a. Jorge Bergoglio) ascended to the Seat of the Papacy in the Catholic Church.
Since coming to terms, although he hasn't been too keen on the Latin Mass, he has said and done a number of things. Particularly, no pope in history has been releasing their daily homilies, or at least summaries of, for public consumption. Thankfully he's defended its existence and will not aborgate Summorum Pontificum!
While Pope Benedict XVI is my favourite pope for what he did for liturgy and Tradition in the Church, I do admire the Pope in numerous ways. From putting showers in the Vatican so the poor can have some sense of human dignity instead of obvious body odour, to the numerous fervorinos/mini homilies he has stated to take us away from our self-centered and prideful hearts, he is certainly applying a pastoral approach to the Pontificate.
Aside from the usual jabs at his Argentinian background and socio-theological upbringing, should we actually heed his words instead of accusing him as the anti-Christ or injecting evil into the Church, and give him considerate analysis of his words, one might find that he is teaching us how to progress in the future with the Church, especially with regards to the Trads. It's likely closer to Christ's example in the Gospel's than one would think.
Sadly, it seems that the Radicals Misrepresenting Traditionalists have chosen to harden their hearts more, at least online in the "Traddie" "c"atholic blogosphere, and the Pope is being rejected. Nothing he says can make them happy. Oh what little faith exists for Holy Mother Church and the Holy Spirit who guides Her! Guys wake up, the mainstream media and liberals are starting to turn on him now.
Regardless, I'll be at least one "Glad Trad" that actually salutes and acknowledges his pontifical anniversary.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, HOLY FATHER!!! KEEP THE HITS COMING!!!!!
Please pray for His Holiness, that he may continue on his journey and that the Holy Spirit guides and preserves him, for however long he stays in the Papacy. May he continue to bring us back to where we should be in our Faith lives and be defended from the assaults of Satan and his minions.
