I am reading Lumen fidei, the new, first encyclical from Pope Francis.
From what I can tell, it is nearly entirely Benedict.
If, as Pope, you have to have a ghost writer, why not another Pope? Talk about “Reading Francis through Benedict”!
“Reading Benedict Through Francis”!
I will write more about this later, but from the onset I was happy to see that it is “of the Supreme Pontiff Francis” and not from “Francis, Bishop of Rome”.
