Here we go again!
More inane gibberish from the Pope.
Don’t get me wrong. I like this Pope. Lets face it. I am one of the FEW who actually had him as a papabile, in print. So, don’t get on your high horse with me.
I am though a realist and a taskmaster — and the pope does not intimidate me. IF he calls me up, and my number is right here (—>>), I will tell him all of this directly.
His statement that Rugby was NON-violent was stupid! Period.
His suggestion about a “Prayer of ‘WHY'” had Christians skating on thin ice.
His decision to display “St. Peter’s” bones stretched credulity to a near breaking-point.
I am openly contending that this Pope, right now, is not thinking and speaking clearly.
You prove ME wrong.
This the LATEST gibberish worries me.
Of course, I am ALL IN FAVOR, of sharing the wealth. Always believed that. I have always been BIG on generosity and charity.
To this day, despite (if I say it as humbly as possible) a surfeit of compliments, the compliment I treasure the MOST was from one of my ex-father-in-laws, the day that his daughter informed him that I was divorcing her. He came to see us and told me: “… you are the MOST GENEROUS man I have ever met”. And that was BEFORE he or his daughter even heard of my divorce settlement for her!
Pope, by all means, let us ALL share the wealth, but you as a cloistered, rather sheltered Jesuit might not have heard of this, BUT ‘charity begins at home’.
So let us PLEASE start with the Vatican.
I have said it before, to the chagrin of some Catholics, lets PLEASE start with the mother of all yard sales — in St. Peter’s Square.
Just have your peons bring out 400 artifacts, at random, from the Apostolic Palace. Given that you refuse to use it — make that the Papal Apartment. Just bring out 400 items and sell them in St. Peter’s Square. Give the money to charity. Then you can call on others.
Till then you sound pompous, out-of-touch and bit silly. Sorry. But, somebody has to say it and it might as well be me — since I am beyond salvation, thank God.
