My wife's typically brief and accurate take: "He's sort of loosey-goosey when he talks, isn't he?"
Someone else, whom I'll refrain from identifying but who can speak up if he or she sees this and wishes to: "We've got Paul VI again."
It was a brief conversation, but what I took the Paul VI comparison to mean, among other things, is that Francis, like Paul, sometimes does not seem to grasp accurately the way his words and actions will be perceived, and the effect they'll have.
And finally, from me: I have read all but the last few paragraphs of the interview, and most of it by far is somewhere between good and wonderful. It's unfortunate that certain remarks have been so subject to incomprehension and distortion. But that phenomenon mustn't blind us to things like this:
I have a dogmatic certainty: God is in every person’s life. God is in everyone’s life. Even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs or anything else—God is in this person’s life. You can, you must try to seek God in every human life. Although the life of a person is a land full of thorns and weeds, there is always a space in which the good seed can grow. You have to trust God.”
