the vatican is stuffed with entrenched bureaucrats who weather whatever changes each pope tries to make

francis seems to walk the walk better than most, but his chances of making any substantive changes to those structures are minimal, even with his little council of outsiders advising him

I dunno, I disagree with the Priest FTFA: I think the style is important as well. Telling your constituents to get involved in governmental things with your beliefs, shoving it down other people's throats and the like and naysaying a buncha stuff that people don't agree with is a bit different from t his guy's message of "Don't be a dick".

Yes the message is the same, but the tone and delivery are exceedingly different.

Yes they're still against women in positions of power, gays going to heaven and the like but the thing Frankie P seems to be focusing on, in true Jesuit fashion, is to help one another and try to be decent.

The part where that New York Diocese said "Pope Francis says we're talking to much about homosexuality and abortion, you can't talk too much about that" and then is relieved of his position is a bit of a change.

I like this pope, so does my dad and grandparents, and they're catholic.  I'm not religious but he seems much better than I expected.
