Today, March 22nd, Francis has made it exceedingly clear that he has no intention whatsoever of deviating from the fundamentals of Pope Benedict’s assessment of secular culture.
“But there is another form of poverty! It is the spiritual poverty of our time, which afflicts the so-called richer countries particularly seriously. It is what my much-loved predecessor, the dear and venerated Benedict XVI, called the ‘dictatorship of relativism‘…”
Surprise! Surprise! John Paul II called it the Culture of Death, Benedict called it the culture of oppressive Relativism, and now, drum roll please, Pope Francis has followed both his predecessors in explaining the grave spiritual poverty of modern secular culture.
Those Popes really are on the same page. Golly gee! What is it that makes those guys so stone cold in their unity. What is it?
Anyways, eventually we have to have a Pope that will change all this. Right!? Surely they will eventually embrace the cultural riches of killing the most innocent and vulnerable among us, of killing the elderly through euthanasia, of devastating the family with divorce and the like!
