Two pairs of ’em, one of them a muslim!  So very sweetly ecumenical and PC. That ought to buy Pope Francis at least another 2 weeks of glowing secular media coverage.  You had to be blind not to see this 7-engine Union Pacific coming down the track.  Story in Italian here. Thanks to Rorate Caeli for their diligence. Many sites are not carrying this huge story.  The schoolmarms at CatholicCulture have a post about the sermon but not the novel act of having women in the Mandatum.  Brick by brick man isn’t discussing it. At least not yet. I have a feeling we’re going to see a whole lot of “out with the old, in with the new” with Pope Francis.  Some of that new may be extremely disconcerting and run counter to much Sacred Tradition.

I know many blogs have gotten pounded for saying as much, and maybe I will, too, but many early signs indicate Tradition doesn’t mean a great deal to this pope, and that he is prepared to jettison elements of it he finds distasteful or counter to his rather ideosyncratic brand of humility.  This could be very destructive, as we saw the after-effect of VII was destructive.

He does still give a good sermon.  Much more accessible than  his predecessors.

We’ll see.  I shall strive to pray even more. I have no more time to comment now.
