When Pope Francis is the left-wing of the world, I say God dammit, celebrate Christmas and the risen Jesus! I know Francis has a ways to go on certain issues, but denouncing the fundamentalists' obsession with sex and gender is a start. What we often think is Lost is Found. If the church of the poor is rising, can a party of the poor be far behind? If Latin America is lifting the pope, is that not Good Tidings for the immigrant? If the Pope takes the name of Francis, does that not mean that the earth and universe are consecrated? I don't mean to preach to you, brothers and sisters, but it's that time of year when the Spirit is born where least expected. Have courage, gain wisdom, laugh at the powerful, spread love, rant when necessary, raise your fists, organize, and keep Lucifer at bay- or at least out of office. If Francis can be pope, anything is possible.
