Why I Am Disappointed with Pope Francis | Chris Castaldo

In this article Dr. Castaldo ponders whether Pope Francis’s silence about Jesus during his American visit was in keeping with the phrase (mistakenly) attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, which says, ““Preach the gospel at all times, and use words if necessary.”

I admit that I reject the premise of this axiom for one simple reason: it is always, always, ALWAYS necessary to use words when preaching the gospel.

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? (Romans 10:14-15, NIV/1984)

Dr. Castaldo writes from deep knowledge of Catholicism. You can also check out Dr. Castaldo’s blog and learn more about him www.chriscastaldo.com
