Hand it to Pope Francis. Undoing the restored discipline and theological clarity of Popes St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI has been a hayride of rollicking fun and sneezing comedy.
Backwardism has become a new cliche, but perhaps not in the way Pope Francis meant it, but he certainly has engendered nostalgia in the longing for the 1970’s crowd. This pope has been their Time Machine back to a better place for them prior to the last two popes.
Laugh and weep at this story. You can’t make it up unless you are in a Time Machine!
