Pope Francis at six months

17 Sep

SEPTEMBER 17, 2013 — Patrick Novecosky, editor of this blog and editor-in-chief of Legatus magazine, was a guest on Iowa Catholic Radio in Des Moines, Iowa, this morning. He appeared on the Iowa Catholic Radio Morning Show with Jeanne Wells and Mark Amadeo. They asked Novecosky about Pope Francis and his impact on the Church over the first six months of his pontificate. Iowa-Jean-Mark

Novecosky, who was in St. Peter’s Square when Pope Francis stepped out onto the loggia after his March 13 election, said that the new pope has built his reputation as a reformer, a man who will continue to do things differently without compromising the Gospel message.

Pope Francis has pledged to reform the Roman Curia, the administrative apparatus of the Holy See and the central governing body of the entire Catholic Church. The Pope recently appointed Italian Archbishop Pietro Parolin as his new Secretary of State.

Pope Francis will meet with his “Gang of Eight” cardinals charged with advising him on curial reform in early October.
