Francis is Not my Preferred Pope

I would have preferred Cardinal Wilfrid Napier as pope. We all have our predilections. Take note, however, that I never wrote that I find this pope unworthy. That is for God to decide.
It is a pity that I cannot explain to Mr Tonin in The Southern Cross why I don’t like Pope Francis

The Pope of the Gospel

One of the most profound episodes in the gospels is Jesus’ encounter with the woman of dubious repute at Jacob’s Well in Samaria (John 4:5-42). There were many reasons why Jesus should not have engaged with that woman. For one thing, as she rightly noted, he was a Jew and she a Samaritan, members of groups who maintained a mutual hostility.
