INITAL REFLECTIONS ON THE ELECTION OF FRANCIS
AS BISHOP OF ROME & SERVANT-LEADER IN THE PETRINE MINISTRY
 
Click on the above heading to read the document.

Some reports have claimed that Francis was complicit in Argentina's "Dirty War,"
but deeper investigations show the opposite to be the truth.
Other reports claim him to be an enemy of "Liberation Theology,"
but deeper investigations show him to be someone profoundly open to dialogue.
