Amen, Pope Francis, the Lord "Wants a Change"

"The Lord wants a change in the Church”, Pope Francis told 28 Jesuits he met in Vilnius nunciature during his trip to the Baltic states (LaCiviltaCattolica.com, October 17).

Unsurprisingly, Francis repeated the mantra that "clericalism" is a perversion of the Church [but what is "clericalism"?].

Francis believes that the [failed] Second Vatican Council with its People-of-God ideology is the solution and not the root of the problem [Since this council the "People of God" has largely vanished].

Nevertheless Francis is unflinching, "Historians tell us that it takes 100 years for a Council to be applied. We are halfway there."

As an alternative to such a frightening perspective, Francis should remember that "the Lord wants a change".

A change of Pope would be nice!
Christ never said, “If a clericalist seeks the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?”

Yes the Lord wants Bergoglio to repent , sack all his homosexual mates and undo the heresies he has been propagating.
What we need is good sheppards to guide ,protect ,and teach the Truth of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ ,not secularism and world evil idiologies
The change the Good Lord may want is for His Church to start living the faith and abiding in all its teachings that are already in place.
The Lord wants you to become Catholic, Francis, so that you can save your soul

But in order for the Church to enter into that deep period of spiritual renewal necessary, I think we need a conclave.
Francis today: “To annihilate a man it’s enough to ignore him. Indifference kills.” Can anyone say “dubia”?
