Laura Ingraham hosted Father Paul Scalia on Pope Francis.
Scalia said the transition to Pope Francis is not a lot different than that from Pope John Paul II to Pope Benedict XVI. Ingraham questioned Pope Francis' more open style of presentation. Scalia said it's a great opportunity to engage people in the issues and stated it's not a departure from the Church's teachings. He accused the press of being lazy in their coverage and that the Church is getting a hearing it hasn't in quite a while. Scalia said the rubrics of the Church haven't changed at all. He said anecdotally that people are inspired by Pope Francis words.
Scalia said if we live our faith autnehtically rather than shaking our fist at the culture. He noted the Church's messages on sexuality demand a very high level of responsibility which isn't popular with our culture. He said there is a good rapport between Popes Francis and Benedict.
Scalia said he decided to become a priest when he was twenty years old.
