I wonder the same thing as Terry Nelson

Why are Catholics so worried about the Pope and what he says?

It’s been mystifying to me that so many people want to massage what the Holy Father says and seem so embarrassed by him.  I agree completely with John Allen that Francis is part of the solution, not the problem, when it comes to the Church’s recent woes.  I love the guy.
