Today the Holy Father said this among other things to world diplomats:

Peace is also threatened by every denial of human dignity, firstly the lack of access to adequate nutrition. We cannot be indifferent to those suffering from hunger, especially children, when we think of how much food is wasted every day in many parts of the world immersed in what I have often termed “the throwaway culture”. Unfortunately, what is thrown away is not only food and dispensable objects, but often human beings themselves, who are discarded as “unnecessary”. For example, it is frightful even to think there are children, victims of abortion, who will never see the light of day; children being used as soldiers, abused and killed in armed conflicts; and children being bought and sold in that terrible form of modern slavery which is human trafficking, which is a crime against humanity.

Pro-life Catholics need to get over their worries about Pope Francis and his views on abortion. He's against abortion, plain and simple. But he's for Christ above all else, and places introducing the world to Christian friendship as his primary responsibility as pope. Rightly so.

We'll it only took ten months. But better late than never I suppose.

There is no question that the Holy Father is a "son of holy mother church". I guess I don't get why that is in question. Has he said things that are VERY pastoral? Yes. Does that bring confusion to our conservative agendas...yes, probably at times. Does it harm the Church Militant? I don't know, depends on your personal perspective, I guess. Does it harm the Church Triumphant? No... Not if you are a true Catholic believer.
