A priest friend told me he finds Pope Francis confusing, laughing, he said, "He's different, isn't he?"
I get the feeling Francis confuses many people.
Today I discovered that he even confuses Cardinal George, and Sandro Magister as well.
“He says wonderful things,” Cardinal George said about Francis in an interview on Sunday, “but he doesn’t put them together all the time, so over what his intention is. What he says is clear enough, but what does he want us to do?”
Cardinal George, who is 77 and being treated for cancer, remains a voting cardinal until age 80 and says he would like to travel to Rome to see Francis: “I’d like to sit down with him and say, Holy Father, first of all, thank you for letting me retire. And
I'm confused about a lot of things though, and I have personal business to take care of, so I'll leave it to the bishops and priests to sort out.
Magister: It is another of the paradigms of expression recurring in this pontificate: reprimands towards both sides. However, if you want to inventory them, his beatings of traditionalists, legalists, rigid defenders of arid doctrine, appear to be much more numerous and focused. When, on the other hand, he gets angry with the liberals, you can’t figure out whom he is talking about. - source
