BOMBSHELL! POPE FRANCIS USES THE ROYAL "WE" AND "OUR" IN A VERY FORMAL LETTER COMMEMORATING THE 450TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE COUNCIL OF TRENT AND ONCE AGAIN PRAISES POPE BENEDICT'S HERMENEUTIC OF REFORM IN CONTINUITY NOT ONLY FOR TRENT BUT FOR THE VATICAN COUNCIL!
This is big news and one more sign of the shift that is taking place with His Holiness, Pope Francis, Supreme Pontiff of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
He confirms outright his support for Pope Benedict's marvelous Christmas speech to the Cardinals in 2005 setting out His Holiness' agenda for his papacy and the reform the Church needs in terms of the proper interpretation of the Second Vatican Council very much in continuity with the Council of Trent and what preceded Trent.
This is stunning news. On top of the that the Supreme Pontiff, Francis I, uses the royal or papal "we" and "ours" in this very formal and traditional letter. Read it for yourself, rejoice and be glad!
