Francis: A Totally UN-Papal Pope…editor
In the video clip below, Pope Francis clearly doesn’t want anyone to kiss the papal ring. Even such a small token of traditionalism causes him to flinch. Remember, on a human level, the reason for Our Lord’s first miracle at the wedding feast at Cana was to spare the bride & groom embarrassment: who knows how embarrassed these poor pilgrims must feel at the Pope’s apparently rude behaviour…
Pope Francis has made various remarks to indicate that he really hasn’t a clue about the papal office. Heck, he hasn’t a clue about the Catholic religion, never mind the papal office. The above refusal to allow the faithful to kiss the papal ring is just one more example of his ignorance – not to mention his bad manners. I don’t like the idea of popes resigning/abdicating – but I am willing to sacrifice my principles and make an exception in his case. I’d really like him to go – what about thee? Or, perhaps you can think of a justifiable excuse for his apparent rudeness in the above video clip. If so, let’s hear it!
