Arriving at the quarter-final stage of the World Cup of Francis Achievements, we are left with eight truly memorable accomplishments. Now, some people who saw this World Cup in action accused me of attacking the pope in some way, but this is very unfair, as I did not say whether the entries were to be regarded positively or negatively. In the end, they are all positive! Let me come clean, and say that I am a huge fan of "Peter" and am hoping to get a job writing for the blog "Where Peter is Wonderful", which explains that the pope is always right, even when he is wrong. So let's analyse the eight quarter-finalists in detail. (Actually, not all the polls are closed yet, but it is now fairly clear who will win.)
Quarter-final 1: Traditionis Custodes 73.4 v Who am I to judge? 26.6
Quarter-final 2: Amoris Laetitia 44.6 v Treatment of the church in China 55.4
Quarter-final 3: Pachamama worship 90.0 v The Abu Dhabi statement 10.0
