A new mentor in my life, Pope Francis

I have a new hero /mentor in my life,”Pope Francis the Revolutionary”. Author George Weigel writes, “Nine months into his papacy, the pontiff has made clear his aim to restore the church’s original evangelical passion..… First and foremost, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a radically converted Christian disciple who has known the mercy of God in his own life and who wants to enable others to share that experience—and the healing and joy that come from friendship with the Lord Jesus Christ. ….Pope Francis is a revolutionary. The revolution he proposes, however, is not a matter of economic or political prescription, but a revolution in the self-understanding of the Catholic Church: a re-energizing return to the pentecostal fervor and evangelical passion from which the church was born two millennia ago, and a summons to mission that accelerates the great historical transition from institutional-maintenance Catholicism to the Church of the New Evangelization”.
