CWN Editor's Note: Father Julian Carron, the leader of the Communion and Liberation movement, has indicated his strong support for Pope Francis, arguing that the current Pope is dedication to the continuation and “radicalization” of the work of Pope Benedict XVI. He acknowledged that many Catholics today do not understand the actions of Pope Francis, but “we will in time when we see the consequences.”
