Pope Francis brings to the Church as Dr. Mirus indicates a new perspective that goes beyond the categories of conservative or liberal. He phrases some of his teachings in ways that are confusing but there is no confusion in the teachings of the Church as illustrated by the Catechism and the Deposit of Faith. I think we can be critical of Pope Francis when His Holiness is not clear and certainly he has clarified things after outcries, especially after the silly rabbits comment.
Pope Francis is Italian and a personality defect of some, or shall I say many Italians is an ability to talk to much without proper nuances. Pope Francis may be of the talking too much school of Italian culture.
