Why Is Pope Francis Avoiding Key Challenges?  | Christian Catholicism

In the end, there was nothing like that.”

So what else is new? How many cardinals, still in shock over the ex-Pope’s sudden resignation, really elected Francis to conduct a “clean up operation”, as opposed to a “preservation operation”, to protect cardinals’ power and wealth?
