What is Pope Francis’ “number one” enemy?

For years, Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been vocal against attitudes he believes should be excluded from the life and customs of the Catholic Church. last chance to repeat all the aversion Francesco felt towards “chatter“The audience was in the general chapter of the lay clergy of the Theatine Clerics.

Two years ago, in September 2020, Bergoglio warned of how “conflicts” and “enmities” derive from “chatter”. Thus the pastoral care on this subject has been going on since, or about, the present Bishop of Rome sitting on the throne of Peter. To say another: to the Archbishop of Paris Michael Opetit The first Jesuit Pope said he was “released” by the Holy Father after rumors of an alleged affair with a woman, and said he had put him aside for the “chatter” that surrounded the story.

No gossip please.”

Francis has often associated the existence of “chatter” with the persistence of doctrinal controversies, whether they were such or not. So to build currents inside Vatican That they have nothing to do with the directives regarding the unity of the Church and its indissolubility that Bergoglio has been repeating for nearly nine years now. The final blow against this problem – a real existential opponent of Pope Francis – according to the Pope’s sovereign approach, could be the well-known reform of the Apostolic Constitution that should amend more than one thing in terms of structures, weights, and weights. Internal counterweights of the Holy See. But the effects of the reform seem to have been lost.
