Elizabeth Stoker-Bruenig has a Smart Look at Pope Francis

Elizabeth Stoker-Bruenig has a Smart Look at Pope Francis May 23, 2015

She is a rare bird: a lefty who takes seriously not only Francis as a Catholic with a heart for the poor and the week, but an orthodox Catholic Christian who gets that the faith really is about the revelation of Jesus Christ crucified and risen, including all that mystical spiritual warfare with the devil stuff that so embarrasses the left.

There’s no reason that divorce has to exist on the left, anymore than there is a good reason the split between being prolife and supporting all the rest of the Church social justice teaching has to exist on the right.  My hope is that one of the fruits of this papacy will be that some of the old Catholic unity will begin to be recovered and we will think with the Church again, not with ideologies.
