Where does he get his energy from?
An excerpt from Francis’ latest interview with Joaquín Morales Solá of La Nacion and published 3 July 2016. If one can read Spanish and would like to read the interview in its entirety they can click here.
— How it is going with the ultraconservatives of the Church?
— They do their job and I do mine. I want an open, comprehensive Church that accompanies the families with wounds. They [ultraconservatives] will say no to everything. I will continue my way ahead without looking to the side [over the shoulder]. No short heads.* I never liked to. I repeat: I reject the conflict. And he [Francis] concludes with a broad smile: “The nails are removed by pressing upwards. Or they are put to rest, next, when retirement age arrives.” [The] Genius and figure of Pope Bergoglio.
* Francis here is alluding to cutting off heads and how he doesn’t operate that way
