Pope Francis has said a lot since taking hold of Peter’s keys.
His remarks about gays, atheists, and other hot-button topics have kept everyone (and I mean everyone) talking.
A favorite headline among Catholic bloggers is now, “Did Pope Francis Really Say __________? 10 Things to Know!”
But some of the things — arguably the most important things — are rarely mentioned at all.
The evils of clericalism.
Solidarity with the poor.
And perhaps most significant: the obligation to be a missionary of the Gospel.
