Bishop of Rome Francis likes to talk about love--how much he loves everyone, how little the Catholics of the past loved anyone, and how emphasis on rules constitutes a failure to feel the love.
In his homily on Sept. 9, 2014, for example, he spoke about love in these terms: “Love does not consider whether someone has an ugly face or a beautiful face: it loves! And Jesus does the same: He loves and chooses with love. He chooses all. Christ chooses all, regardless of how we look or our status in life and a key characteristic of everyone called by him is that they are sinners. Jesus has chosen sinners. He chooses sinners.”
