Curia Cardinal: Francis Is Loved By The Enemies of His Predecessors

There is no opposition against Pope Francis in the Roman Curia, Cardinal Kurt Koch told the Austrian State radio ORF (April 20), "Only a small minority wishes him to be a bit different.”

According to Koch, the popes were always criticized, however, with Francis the fractions have shifted,

“The former popes were criticized by the progressive wing but now it is the traditionalist [= Catholic] wing that has its problems with Pope Francis.”

Koch stressed that Francis "likes it a lot to be pope."

The cardinal was told by some Argentinian priests: “We have never seen Jorge Bergoglio happier than now that he is Pope.”

Was there ever any doubt that he "likes it a lot to be pope"? He connived enough to get his hands on power, now he has it to undermine the office as well as the faith of the baptized. Good work, Jorge. You are a real winner.

Awww... c'mon Benedict Joseph who wouldn't want to be Pope? You get to dress in some incredibly snappy clothes, fly around the world, all the major Western world-leaders want to invite you to swag dinners so they can hang on your every word. Thousands of convents all over the world are always sending freshly baked cookies and nobody bakes cookies as good as nuns. Then there's the best part of …More

It's not the traditional "wing." It's well informed/educated Catholics who know what the Catholic Church actually teaches who are having problems with what Francis says/does. The man himself is not in question. His actions/inaction absolutely should be. Indeed, only a small minority want to be different -- that is be Catholic and not of the world.

It's not the traditional "wing." It's well informed/educated Catholics who know what the Catholic Church actually teaches who are having problems with what Francis says/does. The man himself is not in question. His actions/inaction absolutely should be. Indeed, only a small minority want to be different -- that is be Catholic and not of the world. That should get a priest thinking, or at the very least investigating the why behind this opposition to the Simon-Says-It's-Okay-Today pontificate that seems to float in the wind from one air presser to the next. And I'll bet Francis loves being pope. Many Argentine boys likely dreamed of being Juan Perone, too. All that power and smiling to go with pushing a Fascist agenda. What's not to like? But why this focus on the man liking his job. The idea is to DO ONE'S JOB. Not be liked or feel squidgy inside. This fits right in with Clown Meme culture, though. That is we're living through a reality that is more like a scary carnival. God help us.

When was Jerry Lewis elected a Cardinal? Seriously, look at him. That's Jerry Lewis in the flesh and still a buffoon as well.

He loves to light candles.
'course! Candles are all religious and stuff. :D You know, without doing or saying anything religious that might offend anyone. Empty meaningless sybolism. What he's doing has about as much spiritual value as some bored housewife lighting a candle before she parks her behind on her Pakistan-made (with slave-labour) "meditation cushion" starts her Ayurvedic Eco-Yoga .Weigh-Loss exercises. :p
