One of the features of Pope Francis that must be kept in mind is that he is a remarkably petty man.  Case in point:


It is a story that reads like a passage from The Dictator Pope: Pope Francis recently accepted the age-related resignation of Héctor Aguer, the Archbishop of La Plata, Argentina — the capital city of the Buenos Aires province — and will replace him with his close confidant and ghostwriter, Archbishop Víctor Manuel “Tucho” Fernández. Not only did the pope accept the resignation of Archbishop Aguer within just a few days of its mandatory submission, he also ordered him, through the nunciature, to immediately leave the diocese and not to remain there for his retirement.

Go here to read the rest.  Like many Leftists, the Pope loves people, but only in the abstract.

  1. They were both auxillaries in Buenos Aires 20-odd years ago. I’d wager Bp. Aguer’s presence made Bergoglio feel inadequate, and he’s resented him ever since.

  2. Every day that passes is yet a day closer to this disastrous papacy’s end.

    That is a positive fact.

  3. I agree with Steve Phoenix. And I pray that when this Papacy does end, the Cardinals do not choose a person either like this vindictive man or worse than him. And I also pray that the new Pope anathematizes this current occupant of the See of St. Peter and all the works he has done.

  4. As Lucius Cincinnatus observes, the cardinalate established largely by the Argentinian socialist caudillo will sustain a heavy burden to choose a man of sufficient caliber able to restore the Church.
    One may think that impossible, but re-reading the careening history of the Catholic Church during the Avignon period and the times of S. Catherine of Siena, it is actually possible that a group of cardinals from whom not much could be expected will end up delivering a candidate that may unravel the disaster of the past (so far) 5 years.

    I encounter so many people, family, friends, acquaintances, that have essentially stopped attending a putatively substitute church for the one they used to know, one that existed even as recently as Benedict XVI.
