Francis will need all the blessings of God to change the church 

Fr Michael Commane - The Way I See It I was ordained a priest in 1974. Paul VI was pope and the new wind of Vatican II was in the air. There was a noticeable enthusiasm about. Paul VI was quietly but surely seeing to it that the windows and doors of the Catholic Church would stay open, windows and doors that Pope John XXIII had begun to open. I lived in Rome between 1974 and 1976 and it was exhilarating to see signs of a new open church appearing.
