Pope Francis: Ruffling feathers

Posted on 04. Jul, 2013, in Church Teachings, Vatican1 Comment

Argentinian Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected as Pope on March 13th 2013. Fr. Michael Collins, author of Francis, Bishop of Rome speaks to Miriam Gormally about Pope Francis and his new approach as head of the Catholic Church.  In this first of a three part series, he talks about how Francis is challenging the idea that the Vatican is stuck in a time warp by living a simpler life and referring to the importance of unity between all Christian religions. Miriam asks if he is perhaps ruffling a few feathers by challenging the perks that came with life in Vatican City.

    What a wonderful story! Morris West was prophetic in “The Shoes of the Fishermen.” It is so good to hear more about the ways in which the least are brought to the fore. I am so glad that this new Pope does not stop with the cleaners but realises that leaving on lights unnecessarily also affects the whole web of life. May all of this continue and go on to those silenced within the Roman Catholic Church.
