Criticism of popes is not new in the Catholic world.Recently we have come across the criticism against the views of Pope Francis about the pastoral implications of moral theology on divorce and remarriage, and strident opposition to his reproaches of how the international economy generates such extreme wealth and economy. Fr. Bruce Duncan, CSsR, from the province of Oceania has written an interesting article about the recent criticisms of Pope Francis and he tries to see it in a different perspective.

Bruce Duncan, CSsR is the Director and one of the founders of the advocacy organisation, Social Policy Connections, and of the new Yarra Institute for Religion and Social Policy. Since 1986 he has taught at the Yarra Theological Union, and coordinates the program in social justice studies. He was a member of the Melbourne Catholic Commission for Justice, Development and Peace (1994-2007), and a consultant with Catholic Social Services Victoria (1998-2007).
