Tells Them to Discern Through Prayer, Humility and ObedienceDEBORAH CASTELLANO LUBOV
Pope Francis has warned new bishops against rigidity.
Speaking to over 100 bishops who were appointed during the course of this year and are in Rome participating in an annual course of formation for new bishops, at times affectionately referred to as ‘Baby Bishop School,’ Francis reminded them to be creative, and to ground themselves in prayer and listening to God’s direction.
He began noting that bishops ought to remember that not through their own merits, but “by pure divine benevolence” they are entrusted with testifying the Gospel of the grace of God and ministering the Spirit. read more

It saddens me that Pope Francis refuses to recognize the pro-life intentions and actions of President Trump. The president has made good on his promises to pro-life voters, starting on his first day in office with his restoration of the Mexico City Policy, which he later expanded. Federal funds can no longer pay for abortions overseas. And there is more, not the least of which is the presence of Justice Neil Gorsuch on the U.S. Supreme Court.
But rather than applauding the president’s actions, Pope Francis has attempted to co-opt the meaning of “pro-life” to include his preferred immigration policies. Speaking to reporters on his flight back to Rome from Colombia, the pope was asked about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), which the president had ordered phased out in six months. “I hope they rethink it a bit,” the pontiff said, “Because I heard the U.S. president speak: He presents himself as a person who is pro-life.” read more
