A Remnant Book Review. Book by Philip F. Reviewed for The Remnant by Vincent Chiarello.
Nominated for Book of the Year 2013
George Neumayr, author of The Political Pope See my review: The Remnant, May 31, begins his critique of the pope with these words: "From the first moment I saw him, I knew that he was going to be a Modernist wrecking ball. The other author is not as blunt, at least at the start. He begins thus: "Every day I pray for Pope Francis. And every day I am exaggerating, but only slightly , the pope issues another reminder that he does not approve of Catholics like me.

Although their mindsets may be different, at least on the surface, in addressing the shortcomings of this pontificate, both authors are convinced that Pope Francis is doing serious damage to the Church. According to Lawler, " I believed despite his sometimes-alarming remarks, Francis was not a radical, was not leading the Church away from the ancient sources of the Faith. But gradually, reluctantly, painfully, I came to the conclusion that he was. It should be stressed that Lawler openly admits that, at the beginning of the new pontificate, he "was one of millions," who had succumbed to the "Francis effect," which "captured the public imagination.
But slowly, and at first, imperceptibly, Lawler began a reversal of his early faith in the pontiff: "The Roman pontiff should be a focus of unity in the Church. Francis, regrettably, has become a source of division. Lawler notes, and Neumayr would agree, that another disturbing aspect of the current pontiff's radicalism is his style of governance. Lawler: ".. But these two Catholic laymen are not alone in noticing what is happening during Francis's pontificate: Sohrab Ahmari, an Iranian, who, in , converted to Catholicism, wrote in The Wall Street Journal : "As with other recent disputes - communion for the divorced-and remarried; the status of the Latin Mass; Vatican engagement with China's Communist regime - conservatives are on one side and Pope Francis is on the other.

Lawler makes a crucial point about this pope, who should not "be on one side" of disagreements within the Church. Then: "Whereas we expect President Trump to reverse policies of President Obama - just as Obama reversed the policies of President Bush - we expect the pope to preserve the decisions of his predecessors. Lawler points to Amoris Laetitia as one such "new teaching," and in so doing, "violated the sacred trust that is given to Peter's successors. The turning point of Lawler's growing skepticism about the pope's agenda came on February 24, , "when something snapped inside me.

Lawler now was convinced that the pope, " Before continuing, however, one could ask: Who is Philip Lawler? Lawler attended Harvard College, graduating in with honors in Government, and later did graduate work in political philosophy at the University of Chicago. As a journalist, he was the acting editor of Crisis magazine; later, he was the first layman to edit The Pilot, the Boston archdiocesan newspaper.
In , he founded Catholic World News: the first online Catholic news service. Lawler begins his description of the Francis pontificate with a little known fact about the abdication of Pope Benedict, perhaps an omen of what was to follow: on February 11, , the date Pope Benedict did something no pope had done in half a millennia - resign - lightning struck St.
Peter's Basilica not once, but twice. Further, the pope's formal resignation was in Latin, so few among his audience had any idea what he was saying. At 85, and afflicted with serious arthritic problems, his closest friends and aides had noticed signs of the pope's inability to work after his morning duties. As to the serious crises that faced his pontificate, Lawler claims: " Benedict had reached the conclusion that he, now an elderly man and by nature and training a scholar rather than an administrator, had neither the strength nor the talent that would be needed to resolve these internal crises.
The "Vaticanists," the corps of journalists who cover the Vatican, began pondering in print that, if Pope John Paul II had been the first non-Italian pope in centuries, perhaps a "non-European pope" among the "papabile" would reach his level of success.

An Italian, Cardinal Scola of Milan, appeared to be the early and probable heir apparent, but an address by a cardinal from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Jorge Bergoglio, was soon the talk of the conclave. The Argentine prelate, a Jesuit, called for the Church to "come out of herself and go to the peripheries," and that the failure to do so would lead to a Church that " It should be remembered that Cardinal Bergoglio was the "runner-up" to Cardinal Ratzinger at the conclave in but did not exhibit any outward signs of being "a pope in waiting.
And so, it was. This article appeared in The Remnant Newspaper's September 15th edition. Lawler stresses that during the early days of his pontificate, Pope Francis I "captured the world's attention with his unconventional style. Martha's House, the Vatican's guesthouse, and even placed his own phone calls! However, Lawler does mention one Vaticanist who claimed that journalists, "were leaving some potentially damaging stories unreported because they thought no one wanted to hear bad news about the pontiff.
Neumayr reported that his fellow Jesuits had distanced themselves from Provincial Bergoglio because of his willingness to work with the military junta.

The priestly scandals have been the major source of both public and Vatican attention - until the new pontificate - but Vatican finances also were in dire need of reform. Cardinal George Pell of Australia was appointed by Pope Benedict to oversee ways of reining in what was seen as the Vatican's "chaotic financial system," one in which Vatican "dicasteries" or Departments, "followed no standard accounting procedures.
The changes were accepted with very modest amendments and were approved by Pope Francis.
But that breakthrough was short lived: the following year, the pope announced the audit of Vatican finances by Price Waterhouse Coopers, the first in history, had been suspended. As in the analogy of the Good Shepherd , Jesus is the shepherd, thus identifying himself with the image of God as a shepherd searching for stray sheep in Ezekiel Ezekiel — Green writes that "these parables are fundamentally about God, The rejoicing of the shepherd with his friends represents God rejoicing with the angels.
The image of God rejoicing at the recovery of lost sinners contrasts with the criticism of the religious leaders which prompted the parable. The image from this parable of the shepherd placing the lost sheep on his shoulders Luke has been widely incorporated into depictions of the Good Shepherd. While there are innumerable references to the Good Shepherd image in Christian hymns , specific references to this parable can be recognised by a mention of the ninety-nine other sheep.
Clephane , which begins:. There were ninety and nine that safely lay In the shelter of the fold. But one was out on the hills away, Far off from the gates of gold. Away on the mountains wild and bare.
