I think you've explained it better than me. That's precisely how I feel, and I think ultimately that ambiguity is going to result in a lot of trouble for oh-so-many reasons.

The middle ground -- which infinitely transcends either of these impostures of Catholic life -- is the Gospel and the Person of Jesus Christ.

Pope Francis has made it abundantly clear that this is his focus.

I agree he has made that clear - as clear as he makes anything. When left to our own devices, the Gospel and the Person of Jesus Christ gets usurped by other worldly desires, or ambition, or pride, or a multitude of other things (see protestants). Part of his role, I think, as our Shepherd is to provide concrete guidance about who we are, but he has failed repeatedly to do so.
