    And too many past Popes have done much worse things and have got away scot-free.

    I believe Pope Francis is sincere about reform - he conveys a formidable presence and certainly seems capable of bending the conservative elements of the Curia to his will. I have to ask though - which narcissistic Popes is he referring to?

    Additionally, he has included Cardinal George Pell amongst his 'wise men' and Pell, a good mate of our current P.M., does not fit my definition of a 'wise man' in any way, shape or form.
