Michael J. Matt comments on the new prayer video of Pope Francis. With the world blowing up all around us, babies being aborted by the millions, marriage all but destroyed and the Christian family on life support—why is the pope so worried about us all going green? Is there something else going on here?
It’s like the lyrics for John Lennon’s “Imagine” are now influencing papal policy. God help us what is going on.
By the way, do you love the pope? That seems to be all that matters to the neo-Catholics.But just how relevant is that?
