      Francis at the six-month mark seems a force of nature" , John L. Allen
      Jr., Sep. 13, 2013

      "The third area where Francis could stimulate reflection is liturgical
      theology.


      The new pope takes a more informal and somewhat "low church"
      approach, a trait that's already having an impact in Rome. Clergy who
      chafed under what they perceived as a mounting fastidiousness during the
      late John Paul II and Benedict years -- showing up for a papal Mass,
      for instance, only to be told they weren't properly dressed because they
      weren't sporting enough crimson and lace -- report all that ended in
      mid-March.

      If Benedict prodded the church to recover the cosmic and spiritual
      depth of the liturgy, Francis may stimulate renewed emphasis on the
      service and communal dimensions."

      Indeed, but they are complementary rather than contradictory in terms of believing and expressing the faith. David ... David Lewis Arlington VA USA
