In a paean to his boss, the English-language attaché in the Vatican's press office concluded with an astounding statement.
"Pope Francis breaks Catholic traditions whenever he wants, because he is 'free from disordered attachments,' " the Rev. Thomas Rosica wrote Aug. 13. "Our Church has indeed entered a new phase: with the advent of this first Jesuit pope, it is openly ruled by an individual rather than by the authority of Scripture alone or even its own dictates of tradition plus Scripture."
One might wonder whether the good father plans to build in front of St. Peter's Basilica a gigantic bronze statue of Pope Francis, similar to the ones of Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il in Pyongyang, North Korea.
