I love Pope Frances. He chose his name rightly. St. Frances of Assisi was a thorn in the side of the establishment too. He called for justice, compassion, and caring for all creatures and the earth.
Pope Frances is a prophet. Like the prophets of the Old Testament, he exposes the sins of humankind and he is doing a wang-bang job.
Every time I read about some radical statement coming from the Pope, my heart swells…I think it is hope.
