Pope Francis

The first thing to note is that apparently he won't be Pope France I until there's a Pope Francis II.

Next contrary to the desires of many Pope Francis has always upheld the teachings of the Church on such controversial topics as active homosexuality and abortion so Catholic teaching is not going to be changing any time soon.

Also while Pope Francis continues the Church's preferential respect for the poor he does so by calling on all of us to live as Christ lived and to help the poor which is far from the liberal view of massive inefficient government redistribution of wealth as the way to help the poor.

In spite of all of the problems the media in America keeps telling us the Church has the simple fact is that the Church is moving on teaching what it has always taught just as it has done for 2000 years.

In today's America it's hard to believe that anything is stable, not even what is right and what is wrong.  But the simple truth is that the Church has been extolling the same Truth for 2000 years; the Didache, written around 80AD, condemns abortion for example.

If you're looking for truth that is not conditioned by the culture, truth that has withstood the test of time, truth that will make you happy in this life as well as the next I suggest you give the Church, whose earthly leader is now Pope Francis, a look, you probably won't regret it.
