    The book is characteristically well written, and makes impressive use of theological crises from centuries past in order to contextualize Francis in the long, often fractious sweep of Catholic history. Jesus Christ will purify His people through cruel wars, famines, plagues, epidemics, and other horrible calamities. The PA report was, and is, utterly devastating to the reputation and moral authority of the bishops as a class. By the grace of God, the power of the Great Monarch, the authority of the Holy pontiff, and the union of all the most devout princes, atheism and every heresy will be banished from the earth.

Young Catholics accustomed to seeing women succeed in the workplace hopefully will have a chance to see become leaders in a faith setting, as well. In the mean time, all we can do is keep working with others to try to build up the kingdom of God, even if we can't quite tell what it will look like.

    But while Francis may make the church more inviting, he is not reason enough to stay. In the secular realm, we carry out our arguments—and develop our politics, each of us an autodidact—without the benefit of a common moral language or the bedrock of shared premises, and we sometimes appear fated, therefore, to retreat to our various ideological corners for good. If reporters smell blood in the water — that is, signs that the same kind of corruption that caused the sex abuse scandal plays out criminally in other areas — there is a good chance that they will pounce on them. The first decade is a time of preparation for the tribulation.
