By all the comments you shared on the podcast, I felt I was listening to the Father Bergoglio when he was a bishop in Argentina and member of the Conference of Latin American Bishops. I missed that in Pope Francis. May the Lord help him to be less ambiguous in his general opinions. Thanks for sharing with us. I had a great time.
