Francis’ first year

Your article on the first anniversary of the papacy of Francis suggests that he is popular because of his emphasis on the social gospel (“Pope ‘As Real as It Gets’ in First Year,” March 13).

But we should remember that there has been no change in church teaching on hot-button issues like abortion.

And maybe the pope believes that emphasizing the social gospel is an effective teaching on that subject anyway.

After all, if we cared about strangers as much as we do family and friends, people would be less likely to even think about that unholy act.
