Dear Pope Francis, I know you have a good heart, but sometimes it is just best to stay silent and not say everything that pops up in one's mind into the outstretched microphones of the world press. You cause much more confusion like that than to steer the mothership into the right direction - as is your duty. Some people take everything coming out of the Pope's mouth for divine law - and with all respect, not everything you are saying is very wise or even well thought through. Some things are even simply wrong and the fact that the Pope says them doesn't make them right. Your duty is to lead and guide the Church in stormy times, and to be honest, so far you are missing out big time on that. Hugging little kids is nice, but even politicians do that as the press loves it and they want to look good there. Doing things that are right even though the world will hate you for them, this is what matters for a Christian. Please think about what you are saying and take some time out every now and then to just be silent, pray and meditate. Thank you. A fellow Catholic.
