Cardinal Erdö: Pope Francis will give a social and spiritual push to the Church

2013-03-22

CARD. PETER ERDÖ
Archbishop of Budapest (Hungary)
“Choosing the name Francis is very symbolic. I think he wants to give a new push to the spiritual life of the Church. Back in his time St. Francis of Assisi represented a type of novelty-not only socially but at a spiritual level.”

Erdo also talked about how the new Pope was the Chancellor of the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina.  So he believes the importance of education will be a pillar of his pontificate.

CARD. PETER ERDÖ
Archbishop of Budapest (Hungary)
“He wants to be able to transmit the faith in a simple, direct way to every day people. But he also wants to show the richness of faith through a scientific, high level conversation.”

With this goal in mind, the archbishop of Buenos Aires, now the newly elected Pope, created a department that focuses on educating people of different social classes.
