“Take the Long View”
Pope Francis has critics who paint him as awful for the church—and worse. Fr. Dwight Longenecker has described them as “wild-mannered.” In a post yesterday he reminds readers that Francis is not one of the few “stinkers” that has occupied the Chair of Peter (they were about 4% of the total number). Francis-watchers do better to notice “the gifts he brings to” today’s church.
