Pope Francis’ inaugural homily is profoundly Christian. Yes, I did just say it is profoundly Christian, and yes I meant it to be humorous. The homily is complete in and of itself, and I can add nothing to it but a helpful explanation: Christians are directed to do two things: love our God with every single fiber of our being and love our neighbors as ourselves (Mk 12:29-31). The love of our God is carried out by loving the things He loves, which is creation (for he loved it into being), and loving our neighbors means loving all of God’s children, born or pre-born (unborn).
If you are like me and missed the Inaugural Mass, you should definitely give the homily a reading. What a great man of great holiness and wisdom! Gloria in excelsis Deo et viva el papa Franciscum!
