The Pope leads with humility
I'm so proud of our new pope! There are thousands of articles, radio and TV interviews and social media posts discussing how humble this new leader is. From the moment he was elected and chose to pay his own bill in the residence, we knew we had someone new in charge.
He is quietly taking on the staid traditions of the church, not allowing himself or the church be intimidated by the 'gay lobby' and all the entrenched bureaucracy. To the general public he is embracing everyone, including atheists. He is backing down from the controversial positions the church has held, not rejecting them, but refusing to let these positions alienate people.
Too bad the man isn't younger. I'm looking forward to many years of his stewardship of the Catholic church.
