On April 15, 2013, the Catholic League ran a full page ad in the op-ed page of the New York Times of all places paying tribute to Pope Francis that read, in part:
"As soon as you were introduced as Pope Francis, you impressed us, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, with your humility and ability to connect with common people. Your long-standing outreach to the least among us, beginning with the unborn, is especially welcome. So is your commitment to the poor, and your equally strong rejection of a politicized theology."
"What makes this pope so important is the speed with which he has captured the imaginations of millions who had given up on hoping for the church."
