Francis Suffers From Record-Breaking Logorrhea

Papal encyclicals from 1878 to 1978 contained between 4,000 and 10,000 words. Pope Francis uses per encyclical an average of 30,000 words [without saying much].

This word count was provided by AWildSostenuto.wordpress.com (April 10).

Francis' post-synodal exhortation Amoris Laetitia alone contains 60,000 words.

His exhortation Evangelii gaudium is five times longer than Saint Paul’s Letter to the Romans.

They're convinced that they can explain away reality in favor of their warped perception of the world. Even today, the Left is still churning out endless paragraphs justifying why an oil-rich Marxist-run Latin American country is bankrupt and in chaos.

In his 2019 post-synodal exhortation Christus vivit, Pope Francis cites himself 64 times in 299 paragraphs.
The big change came with John Paul II. (who was very keen on italics, too)
