Who Wants the Pope to Die?

Sunday sermons, weekday observations

Not the rich and famous.

Pope Francis, as all the regular surveys tell us, enjoys the goodwill and favor of ordinary Catholics, as every pope does.

Quite unlike the experience of John Paul or Benedict, he is highly popular with the heads of the Big Tech giants who regularly visit him, the international Davos elite, which considers him an ally on climate and immigration, the U.N. leadership, which welcomes his support for its global agenda,to say nothing of the international media consensus, which praises him as a courageous reformerupdating the Church in order to better conform to the 21st century.

Indeed, there has never been a pope so popular with the wealthy and influential — both without the Church and within, if one considers the immensely rich German bishops.
