No judgment on this Pope.However,for the sake of argument,Jesus choose Judas.God does allow evils for a greater good to come later.
Come on Bernard. There is no need to make a POSSIBLE comparison to Judas, even for the sake of argument.
There is nothing in his background to suggest any evil in our new Pope. He could be completely incompetent for all we know and time will tell just how good a Pope he will be.
Jesus chose Judas for a reason. He knew from all eternity that Judas would betray Him yet he chose him anyway. So His choice must contain a lesson for us, focus on that rather than making some outlandish comparison.
It is obvious from your writing in the forums that you tend to a very traditionalist bent. Believe me, I am probably more traditional than mos here who claim to be traditionalists. But tradition must be tempered by judgement. Otherwise one can become blind to reality.
