I took a moment to read it through, and to be honest, The "Apostolic letter" of Francis" doesn't sound as if Francis actually wrote it. If a Pope wrote it - then it is far more likely to have been written by Benedict XVI - it's more his style as an academic and lover of Tradition.

The wishy-washy hippy style of Francis is pretty obvious - it resonates when reading his documents. This letter is more likely to be the work of a trained Theologian with a respect for Traditional - Not Francis's style at all.

There are only two ideas that are very "Bergoglian": when he says that he likes an apocryphal anecdote about Saint Jerome, and when he makes a link between translation and hospitality. Except for these two lines, the rest seems to have been written by Benedict or other theologians, as you said. I agree with you. (does it make sense? I'm not an English native speaker)

St. Jerome teaches us: ibi Ecclesia ubi fides vera. In Breviarium in Psalmos, in his comments on Psalm CXXXIII, St. Jerome reminds his readers that heretics took churches in their possession in the past and that the Church does not consist in walls (buildings) but in the dogmatic truth.

I haven’t read it but a repeating theme of this pontificate is to teach controversial - mild description - things alongside Catholic ones, even within the same document e.g. Amoris Laetitia.

I think he should be more precise in what he says and writes. He is constantly playing both sides. I miss Benedict's precision. Anyway, I liked this letter.

I miss the clarity of real Catholic teaching/wording. Look at the Council of Trent or the early church councils. There was no doubt at what they were trying to say. They left no grey area that could possibly confuse the faithful. The liberal rot infesting the church has done this.
