It's a promising start. Only time will tell, but he's already shown more public spine in favor of positively revamping the image of the Roman Catholic Church in just the past three weeks than Benedict did in almost eight years in the Papacy.
I am actually cautiously optimistic. This is the first time in a very long time that news out of the Vatican doesn't automatically fill me with rage.

I hope this man can live up to his promise. It will never be enough to bring me back to this faith (that would take nothing short of complete doctrine overhaul), but it would be nice to respect the church instead of hating it.
