Worried Catholic: If something is in the Catechism, do I have to believe it even though it is different from what the Catechism taught before?

Has Francis put his thumb on the scale?

At the very least Francis seems to have cut the legs out from under the authority of the Catechism, if not the Catholic Faith, by introducing something into that Catechism which seems to contradict the Church’s perennial teaching.

Has he messed with the catechism? Does the church have doctrinal precedent or just preferences by the one in charge?

Those who agree with him seem to have caught a break here, but was it by way of dirty pool?
