Oh, no, probably are things differently, simple: Presumably Jorge Mario Bergoglio is exactly power-conscious, talkative and the Catholic relatively disinterested relativizers how Pope Francis appears more and more.
At first it was funny. Since entering a corpulent charmer the pontifical stage and wished "Good evening," gladly "Bon appetit" and always had a Scherzlein on the lips. How we laughed when Bergoglio said to want to defend his mother's honor with slaps, as he praised the parental pat on the infant and Catholics inculcated, they would not like rabbits multiply. That was an unconventional sound to the finely engraved considerations of its predecessor, the antirelativistischen theologian Pope Benedict XVI.
Francis compares the IS with the disciples of Jesus
Now there was instead a chosen as the top bridge-builder, the well-known half-ironically, to be blessed with "a few theological lights" , the popular anecdotes strung together from the Argentine homeland and was always ready for a prank - and for a sentence without predicate and for more a rhetorical question and another and another exclamation: "That does not matter! (...) Respect yourself, respect yourself! " The jokes and the grammatical half measures have remained, but they are stale and hurtful become. The pontificate threatens the church to harm and to please a world that remains skeptical minded particular Church. Francis pushes Catholics on the head without finding believers among non-Catholics. The exit numbers remain high, the quantities of the new priests manageable, the extraordinary year of mercy, which exclaimed Francis few lures to Rome.
Bergoglio are like interviews, likes to talk and likes to laugh. Interviews with the Pope became the global sensation for journalistic everyday business; . well as relativized to the particularity of the Office The interview Francis now was the French weekly newspaper "La Croix" , dispels all doubts: This pope is too good for no folly and no affront against the own church. He vies know sparse to applause from those tribunes of the world, who expect nothing from him.
From genocidal terror of the "Islamic State" and the "war of conquest" he proposes a direct bridge to the mission of the disciples by Jesus, which could be interpreted in terms of "the same idea of conquest". The church as a potential terrorist organization - a derailment or more?
What may be Christians who run for their lives against fanatical Muslims think in this counterfactual aggregation? Do they feel comforted by her Pastors, understood erected - or left cynically down? Those who compare everything with everything, loses his grip, missed their own entertainment. What does it say about a church, though their chief to schwertut with a commitment to the necessity for salvation of Christ?
Also of Francis in "La Croix" accomplished harmony between Cross and headscarf - a garment the one instrument of torture and confession symbol the other - and its relativistic turn of the Christian roots of Europe to also Christian roots of Europe emptied the papal speech. Precise Francis was not at the root question of vagueness is the authenticity mark all chatting. It obeys the motto "Nothing definite you do not know".
At least naive if not foolish was then the papal thesis wars there would be, "because there are arms producers". As if the war were already been out with bare hands and stones as if not jerrycans, stick, spear had almost been enough to put the genocide of the Hutu against the Tutsi to the factory. Etc. pp. An unreflective anti-capitalism leads the Pope astray.
The talker is all one. He lives in the situation and any new situation will force new attention techniques. What comes next, the wind carries them. Francis appears as a protagonist of a "pure situational ethics" (Robert Spaemann). He has appeared now situationally, in district of nuns, a debate on the admissibility of deaconesses in the Roman Catholic Church going . He was again the theological Immaculate and encouraged to aufzuhelfen own ignorance, a Commission. This should clarify what it "in the early days of the Church" with the deaconesses was all about. A Pope should know that this question in 2002 by the International Theological Commission of the Vatican under the title, however, "The diaconate: Development and Perspectives" has been treated broadly. Will Francis get his way for revaluation against then Expertise? Was it all just said so then, because it's nice and cute walked among women? Did he not know?
He does not want to talk - and do it but constantly
Bergoglio knows its dangers, to be without their Lord. Touched by tragedy plays around him. No other topic has devoted Francis of the early days of the pontificate more attention than the warning of chatter and talk: "How much chatter there are in the church how much we talk Christians yet! The gossip - that's when you pull each other's skin off, do not "(18th May 2013) " The Expert cleaves the Community , the chatter destroys the community. They are the weapons of the devil "(January 23, 2014). " Chatter and clapping is terrorism because of the chattering and clapping, like a terrorist is who throws a bomb and then runs away, he destroyed: destroyed with his tongue he . "(September 4, 2015) " and the chatter kills "! (January 21, 2016) " We want to ask the grace of unity for all Christians (...) and for the grace to us to bite your tongue " - said Francis on May 12, 2016 morning in Santa Marta, and arose to the nuns. Every person is a chasm.
In one case, Francis is not relative but absolute: in his priest scolding. Priests would not be in this pontificate. Beatings from the front, beatings from behind holding the Bishop of Rome ready for them. Clericalism is his worst insult, even now in the "La Croix" interview. The priesthood is built in papal perception close to sadism as easily govern forefinger and threatening behavior, ambition and a potential "torture chamber" called confessional. Shrill, unjust can the pastoral reality, at least in the West, where a cozy Eiapopeia proclamation dominated, not recorded. Since it is no wonder that on vatikanischem land and also in the Italian Episcopal Conference, the mood is so bad not seen since the days of the Risorgimento. Hardly anyone does not feel snubbed, not groans when the Regiment of whims spring up surprises.
A UN Secretary General with pectoral cross
Robert Spaemann critique of "pure situational ethics" refers to the recently published Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation "Amoris laetitia" . Thus Francis fully draw on the field of marriage, family and divorce a break with the tradition of teaching, their consequences are foreseen: "uncertainty and confusion of the Episcopal Conferences to the little priest in the jungle. (...) The chaos was charged with a stroke of the pen to the principle. The Pope should have known that it splits the church with such a step and leads toward a schism. "According to Francis - so Spaemann reading - is the dividing line between" objectively sinful "and" godly behavior "no longer absolute. A pope but which liquefies everything is not a rock.
As the thus derided on April 24 this year as a surprise guest at a "rally for social justice and environmental protection" on the occasion of "International Day of the Earth" showed up in the park of the Roman Villa Borghese, he said spontaneously and situationally: Whether someone "this religion" or "the religion" belonged, games "not matter! All precede together to work together. Respect yourself, respect it! "
Not that anyone speaks as Francis speaks is the problem - but that a pope speaks like that. And that therefore a pope, which nothing should go through the faith of the apostles, is indistinguishable in the ranks of the secular lords. When the "high priest of the universal Church" wants to be a robed in white Dalai Lama, a UN Secretary General with pectoral cross, then the essential tasks of the Pope to contingencies, may be where held depending on the situation to three doses, or not: the herd to graze, to lead people to Christ.
From Francis no territorial gains are to be expected in this spiritual core business. Sustainability, humility, accountability and faith formation is not his thing. The successor will assume a spiritually emaciated and unsettled Church. This tragedy will survive the pontificate of the man from the other side of the world.
