What changes will he make?

It is interesting that the biggest question for the new Pope is..."What changes will he make?"

That is what our modern society is all about.  If you don't like what an institution is like...Change it to fit your needs.

It is going on with the Boy Scouts and other youth organizations just to name a few.    This is not a new trend that I know, but as I once heard from an elderly gentleman...

"If you don't like the status quo...Don't try to change it, go start your own and leave the rest of us alone!"

I think this elderly man had it right.

I hope and pray that pressures from the outside don't sway him and he sticks to the Biblical truths, such as some things are absolutely wrong.  No women preachers, gay is a choice and a sin, etc.  Just a couple of things I heard the news media discussing.  Also let it be known that I am not catholic.  Just a simple Christian.

I find this has happened in a lot of towns in our area that have become "found" small New England towns. People buy homes in the town because they are affordable then decide they don't like the services or they aren't adequate enough then they want to change the town they moved to. It's the human condition, I think.

Bill, why is it that people get involved in something or move to an area and then want to change it.  Find something that fits before you make the move or decide to join.

Good morning William, I trust that Pope Francis is a man who relies on the Holy Spirit for guidence and if changes are made they will be for the best and will follow Gods will.

I trust God will guide our new Pope, hoping that in  the process my fellow Catholics throught out the world will find peace with their brothers and sisters.

With any luck, he will stick to the bible teachings as the world stays farther and farther away.

Everyone is geared to change.

Some things are set more in stone and there should not be a need to change to  fit our whims.
