I do not for a second blame Pope Francis IF he prayed for Argentina to win.
He should have. He believes in prayer. That is his stock in trade.
I want Argentina to win. I want that win to be attributed to the Pope’s Potent Pontifical Prayers.
His other prayers of late seem to be working … right? Things are quiet in the Middle East, Israelis and Palestinians breaking bread together in brotherly harmony and all is quiet in Iraq.
He is entitled to pray for his beloved Argentina.
I can’t see how Argentina can fail but WIN.
God has to make it happen.
Pope Francis is HIS man; His man on earth. Christ’s Vicar On Earth — and ‘vicar’ means representative. So how could God turn a blind eye to that?
Once Argentina has won and Pope Francis has done a few victors laps around St. Peter’s Square — with his security guard, in black, scampering after him — MAYBE he could, please, pray for peace in Sri Lanka. Pray that the misguided radical, nationalistic Buddhists, who are up to no good, see the light. That is IT! I had an epiphany! Blinding flash. Pope, PLEASE pray, as you regularly do for the Chinese, but this time for Sri Lanka, that the perfidious (it doesn’t mean what you think) Sri Lankan, Sinhalese, Radical Nationalistic Buddhists will seek conversion to Catholicism. That would work in my book. I might even write a book about it. Father, you have a cardinal over there. Pray for him. Pray that he converts all these extremists Buddhists. You have my blessing on that. [I will have a word with my friend, the retired Archbishop of Colombo.] OK? So you and I. We work together. Lets get these perfidious Buddhists converted. But, one thing PLEASE. Do not, please, pray for me and whatever you do PLEASE don’t even think about me and ‘conversion’ in the same sentence. I am fine the way I am.
Viva Argentina. Ooops! I didn’t mean to say that. Viva the Falklands. We WON. We WON. We WON. Long live the Falklands.
