Wow! Pope Francis is encouraging his priests to ‘Open the doors of the Church, and then the people will come in … if you keep the light on in the confessional and are available, then you will see what kind of line there is for confession’.

Fantastic!  I’ve often felt that confession is the great neglected sacrament of the church and now our wonderfully pastoral Pope is emphasizing it anew.

I can’t tell you how happy I am with this guy!

PS.  Isn’t it wonderful the way that God provides Popes with such different personalities and strengths ( JPII the great philosopher, BXVI the great theologian, etc.) who in sum fulfill the charism of their office in a way tuned to the needs of the flock?  It’s hard not to feel loved when God provides such a great string of Popes for our benefit…

Yep.  I love the guy.  And you’re right that where crazy partisans see only opposition between these Popes, the obvious and common sense thing is to see continuity and commonality.  I’m grateful for all of them.  Gifts far beyond my desserts.
