ASUNCION, Paraguay — Pope Francis is telling young people to shake up society, but then help clean the mess up. His exhortation came Sunday during the final event on his three-country tour in South America.
His comments were a modification of his famous exhortation in 2013, when in Rio de Janeiro he told a church full of Argentine youths that he wanted them to "make a mess" by shaking up their dioceses.
Francis told tens of thousands of young people gathered in Paraguay's capital on Sunday that a fellow priest once told him that encouraging youths to disrupt things up was all good and well, but that later others had to clean up after them.
So Francis said he was correcting himself.
"The mess that young people make, we then have to clean it up ourselves!" he said to roars of laughter. "Shake things up, but then clean it up and fix the mess that you've made."

"Make a mess, but then also help to tidy it up. A mess which gives us a free heart, a mess which gives us solidarity, a mess which gives us hope."
(Dr. Anca) Cernea said, that now, more than ever before, it is critical for the Catholic Church return to its mission of saving souls from the evil one’s ever expanding clutch.“Thus, for the eternal salvation of millions of souls, the Church should be leading the fight against ideologies, and especially against Cultural Marxism, both in [her] public teaching and in [her] confession,” she said.She said that Christians around the world must oppose movements within and without the Church that seek to concentrate power in the hands of a few in order to bring about a so-called “wonderful world.”
“The revolutionists will always use this power against Christianity," she said.“Then we shouldn’t be surprised if society is secularized, charity is replaced by welfare, education is replaced by ideological indoctrination and outright moral perversion, the care for the sick is replaced by euthanasia, freedom of conscience and of speech is replaced by government-imposed political correctness, and citizen’s life is regulated in detail by social engineers, the culture of life and family is constantly losing ground.”
“If we want to defend the family, we need to take the world back from the revolutionists,” she added.—LifeSiteNews
Even when a pope speaks in a manner that leaves little room for manipulation of his comments, some people still manage to twist precise statements into a knotted mess. Take, for example, the irrational reactions to Papa Benedict's Regensburg speech. Adjusters of information have perfected the art of using incomplete reports, a sin of omission of sorts, which allows them to slip in half truths and colour news and information with subtle shades of the half-baked theories that are part of the relativism conglomerate.
The so-called progressives simply ignore anything which contradicts their agenda. In the Catholic and Orthodox Church, which is to say Rome and those churches in communion with the Apostolic See, deaconesses have never been ordained into the major orders. That is, the diaconate, presbyterate and the episcopate. The incessant pontificating of radical feminists and heterodox (c)atholics is nothing more than the adolescent behaviour of those who want to refashion the Church in their image. Female deacons equivalent to deacons in the major orders? Not. Going. To. Happen!
For those who have attached themselves to imaginary conclusions, i.e., those attached to wishful thinking, they will be disappointed when they learn the Church has not changed nor will ever change her teaching on Holy Orders. Note to those who persist in error: they should take up their argument with the Author of Catholic doctrine, Jesus Christ.
Those who are paying attention hear and heed the Author's voice in the Magisterium of the Church. Those who fully embrace the Lord's teaching will avoid complications post-mortem.
