Pope Francis hears grumbling about Fr. James Martin, SJ. So, he turns to his key advisors.
He starts with the Jesuit Antonio Spadaro, editor of La Civiltà Cattolica, he of 2+2=5 theological fame, who tells Francis there is no problem with Martin who is doing God’s own work in building bridges to a marginalized community.
Francis next turns to Cardinal Reinhard Marx of Germany who tells him that Martin is doing God’s own work building bridges to a marginalized community.
