I do not like the new Pope! I think that Pope Francis's honeymoon period may soon come to an end, as people begin to realise the damage his contempt for tradition and his mania for a stark simplicity is doing to the church. Pope Benedict XV1 and Pope John Paul 11 before him implemented the catholic restoration. Without going back to a past that is gone, and without trying to justify all kinds of abuses by reference to the "spirit" of the council, these Popes restored the correct balances in the catholic totality. And I think that beauty has always been one of the hallmarks of the church, and I was very much in favour of the traditional robes, vestments and liturgical richness that Pope Benedict encouraged.
