Pope Francis shuns tradition by wearing simple white vestments and by riding in an open popemobile.

John Paul 11 and Benedict XV1 implemented the catholic restoration. They emphasised the continuity between the pre and post Vatican 11 eras. They restored the balance within the catholic totality after the many and deliberate abuses in the post Vatican 11 years. I am concerned that Pope Francis, in less than a month, has undone all that had been achieved. In his misguided mania for a star simplicity he is pitting his own preferences ahead of the greater good of the papacy. He needs to remember that he is no longer a country bumpkin archbishop, but is the Supreme Pontiff. And he is doing irrepairable damage to the church. Bring back Benedict.
