So a few priests have cottages. So what. Do you have a house? Why can't a priest have one. They do have to have somewhere to live when they retire and do not tell me that they can go to a retirement home. Ate you going to go to a home with ten people living in it when you retire. Leave it alone.

No, I like a lot of the things he says, but I am also concerned with orthodoxy and discipline. Are we headed back to the "touch-feely" days or Paul VI and Pedro Arrupe? I fear we might. There has to be some sense of balance between order and spontaneity. both of which we need.

Very interesting. I actually believe we may be. I never knew a priest from South America that did not ,at least, think that Liberation Theology had some merit. What I wonder about is how much the new pontiff really likes the old Pontiff considering that the former pontiff was very instrumental in giving Fr. Arrupe a hard time. The Jesuits have long memories.

Is the present Pope a new antipope with his surprised news about abortion and gay marriage?
“We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible. I have not spoken much about these things, and I was reprimanded for that. But when we speak about these issues, we have to talk about them in a context. The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time…”(Pope Francis)

However, Francis is asking all priests to sell their summer palaces and expensive cars, and give to the poor. No cottages by the lake with a swimmingpool and fence all around. Where is the money coming from? Number of parishioners keep asking this question!

I wish I had a cottage. I wish I had a swimming pool in my backyard, I wish I had a Lexus or Mercedes.( I would take either) I wish I had a fully remodeled house. I wish I could take endless vacations. I wish I could dine in the finest of restaurants. I wish all my friends were rich and gave me money. Ah...... the good life!

Actually, Bercecoglio was exiled by his Jesuits superiors who thought he was too conservative. The Archbishop of Buenos Aires rescued and had him made a bishop and the rest is history. "Progress" in spirituality in the society of Jesus is usually measured in one's acceptance and promotion of liberal ideas in politics and religion. Take the well known case of Cornelius Buckley. some Jesuits have been forced to leave the Society because they wouldn't relate to others or share their feelins. Usually, these guys are the ones who tend to be more theologically orthodox.

I did know that he had troubles, however, I carefully read the entire transcript of his latest interview and was impressed. He is a big advocate of Salesian Spirituality and a great fan of Peter Faber and the Mystical Movement (Louis Lallement and Jean-Joseph Surin). That is OK in my book.
