Pope Francis has shown an uncanny knack for speaking to the issues of the day in ways which allow us to project our hope and visions for a renewed church upon him.  But eventually his papacy is going to need to move beyond those endearingly personal phone calls. It will need to offer some game-changing solutions that address the substantive problems he has shown some willingness to name. Will Francis‘ church deal seriously with the challenges exacerbated by so many years of burying one’s mitered head in the sand? Only time will tell.

At the very least, Pope Francis has bought his church some of that needed time to reengage and discern its role in a world that is rapidly changing. If he is successful in initiating the Vatican 5s level change that one would argue necessary, we might even begin to see Android (Protestant) users returning to the iOS platform (Roman Catholicism). Stranger things have happened.

  1. It is a beautiful gentling of rhetoric regarding the church’s focus on LGBTQ issues. But he didn’t say the church was wrong. From his interview, “The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.”

    So maybe it is a flashy new OS without substantial changes underneath. For my female RCC sisters drawn to the priesthood and my LGBTQ sisters and brothers, there is no change in policy or how they are treated.

    It is an very difficult situation. And sad.
