Looking Forward To Pope Francis' Next Encyclical

When I read the headline that the Pope's next encyclical would be about the environment, I thought oh no.

Typical leftish topic that will make all the MSM and dissenters go ga-ga.

Then I actually read the Catholic take on it:

Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi confirmed the news in his Jan. 24 statement, noting that in his text, the Pope intends to give a strong emphasis to the theme of “human ecology” – a phrase that was originally coined by retired pontiff Benedict XVI.

I've seen the phrase "human ecology" among social conservatives in France.

It's new buzzword.

I expect that the next encyclical will have significant portions devoted to prolife themes.

Pope Francis will not disappoint.

That man keeps defying expectations.
