Pope Francis’s US tour has been a triumph. His conservative critics must be in despair – Spectator Blogs

Francis was eloquent, relaxed and amazingly youthful for a man heading for 80. He tilted in a liberal direction, but not far enough to create anxiety among most churchgoing Catholics anywhere in the world.

Maybe they should be feeling anxiety. Pope Francis seems to favour changes to pastoral practice – adove all, letting divorced and remarried people receive Communion – that could split the Church. Or, more likely, slowly Anglicanise it, so that rules are bendable in some countries but not in others, making the Catholic Church less catholic.
