Catholic Church at a pivot moment

Pope Francis’ recent statements about how the Catholic Church should be focused more on the poor and less on gay marriage, abortion and contraception are “a pivot moment for the church,” Bob Keeler wrote. “Like St. Francis of Assisi, whose name he took, this pope is trying to repair the church by calling it back to the words of Jesus, who cared a lot more about the poor than about rigid rules and fancy robes.” But, Keeler asked, will the bishops go along?
