Given the Pope's active support for the charismatic movement in his diocese, one can only be concerned that he would be prepared to ordain women under a movement of the spirit.

What they write about the new pope people of his diocese? To quote a certain Antonio:
"I live in Buenos Aires. Bergoglio destroyed this archdiocese, chasing away every single orthodox priest. He disdains sacredness , and de facto banned Summorum Pontificum .

Under the headline Pope begins Easter with liturgical abuse Chris Gillibrand, a British commentator, wrote on his blog, CathCon:

It is a salutary thing to visit the captives, as the Bible states, but the washing of the feet of the twelve who represent the Twelve Apostles is confined to adult Christian men. One of the two girls whose feet he washed was Muslim. Given the way the action will be viewed in the Middle East, it is hardly prudent.

We will see whether it is a particular case, as Lombardi suggests, or the beginning of a journey. Given his active support for the charismatic movement in his diocese, one can only be concerned that he could be prepared to ordain women … How can the pope maintain discipline in the church if he himself does not conform himself to prevailing ecclesiastical legislation?
