    The pope is the leader of the Catholic Church. As such, it his responsibility to describe and defend the teachings of the Church, such as "Thous shalt not kill" (abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, other than self-defense) and, "Thou shalt not commit adultery" (homosexuality, sex outside of Christian marriage). Catholics expect him to uphold the Bible, commandments, and church doctrine. Like Obama, we have more slick words, and no content. May we all be open to conversion with God's grace! Jesus always said, "Go, your sins are forgiven. SIN NO MORE." We want to see some moral courage!

    It is the job of teachers, and priests in confession, to judge the PENITANCE (sorrow for sin) of the confessor, as did Padre Pio, and not to give wholesale absolution to society.

    God bless our Pope! May he continue guiding us and may the Holy Spirit and the Blessed Virgin Mary guide him. Amen.
