A Pope for All People

Pope Francis continues to amaze us with his commitment to dialogue with all kinds of humans on this earth:

  • Gays and lesbians
  • Transgender people
  • Jews
  • Muslims
  • Divorced and remarried Catholics

"Who am I to judge?" continues to be his theme.  In July 2013 he gave this answer to a reporter asking for his position on gay/lesbian issues.

At a Vatican synod last fall, he asked for dialogue about the Church's position on various sexual issues, including divorced and remarried Catholics.

So far he has steered clear of all questions about women's ordination, but stay tuned.

With this pope, anything could happen.

I'm sticking with my prediction that women will regularly be ordained as priests within the Roman Catholic Church by 2050.
