Ms. Kurt recently took the Pope Francis prayer card down and threw it away.

My refrigerator still has Pope John Paul II, but I feel for Ms. Kurt.

So long as we can remember to continuously pray for the man.

In an interview on Friday, Mr. Skojec said he was overwhelmed by the positive response to his blog from people who said they were thinking the same things but had not wanted to say them in public. He said he had come to suspect that Francis is a “self-styled revolutionary” who wants to change the church fundamentally.

“There have been bad popes in the history of the church,” Mr. Skojec said. “Popes that murdered, popes that had mistresses. I’m not saying Pope Francis is terrible, but there’s no divine protection that keeps him from being the type of guy who with subtlety undermines the teachings of the church to bring about a different vision.”....

Matt C. Abbott, a Catholic columnist in Chicago with Renew America...“For orthodox and conservative Catholics,” he said, “the last few months have been a roller-coaster ride.” He added in an email, “I’m not a big fan of roller coasters.”

Can't argue with that!

Egad! Michael Voris' argues in his latest vid that the secularist Left's exploiting of the "Francis Effect" is the equivalent of the "Right's" criticisms of the Pope. He trots out the same old hobbyhorse: media agendas, bad translations and misunderstandings.

Michael Voris had better become a mouthpiece for the USCCB. He will have no credibility when calling out American bishops for merely following the lead of Pope Francis.

The same people lambasting Catholics who make well intentioned criticisms of this pope were the ones bashing John Paul II for his "cult of personality," "obsession" abortion, etc.

It's all so predictable.

Voris's new approach has surprised me a tad. He's free to stay silent but it is not the obligation of any Catholic to remain silent while the Faith is dismantled and clergy start saying things like "Bravo!" to "gay" men coming out.

Thanks for the heads up.

Either Mike is speaking about sedevacanists, or he's missing some context.
