I Explain, In My New ‘Next Pope’ Blog, Why Cardinal Robert Sarah Is Not & Never Was A Realistic Papabile.
I started this ‘Next Pope’ blog last week. Still working on it. So, far I have only managed three post, this post about ‘Robert Sarah‘ the third. I am NOT going to reproduce these posts on this blog too. I want you to get in the habit of going to that blog for future ‘Next Pope‘ posts. OK.
But, until you get into the hang of that. I do NOT want you to miss any of these ‘Next Pope’ posts.
Search ‘next pope‘ & ‘pope‘.
Given that they have been doing nativity scenes for so long, they, i.e., the Vatican, does like to experiment & try out new themes.
This one is ‘interesting’. Yes, kind of a time warp so to speak. An astronaut, in a spacesuit, at the birth of Jesus.
But I can see how this one could irk him more than most.

luckily you do NOT need a microscope.
It being Christmas there is a tradition of giving creative nativity scenes to the pope at Christmas. But, this has to take the cake. Very clever. Now, how are other countries going to top this in coming years. Yes, somebody could create something spectacular in space.
Yes, it also reminded me of the “Emperor’s New Clothes“. But, people can check it out.
Cute. I like it. Wish I could see it for real. Funny, can’t find it, as yet, on YouTube.
You know, the ‘Christmas’ manger scene. Birth of Jesus. A donkey is often shown as being present. This could be the SAME donkey that the Virgin Mary rode upon on her way to Bethlehem. What is the name of this famous donkey?
Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.
Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “Basis For The Gallon” — there are conflicting theories as to how the Imperial (i.e., the British) gallon got to be what it was — and it was this gallon that came ahead of the U.S. gallon. The explanation that makes most sense is that a gallon is the volume of pure water, at 62°F, weighing 10 pounds (as measured with brass weights). It is easy to see how this could an easy definition to come up with and enforce.

Yes, of course, Pope Francis is RIGHT about the World merrily playing ‘the fiddle’ while there is all this strife and conflict.
I fully understand his statements about Christmas.
What I want to know is what Pope Francis is going to do about it?
The Vatican, quite rightly, makes a BIG deal about Christmas. The Vatican nativity scene, accompanied by a huge Christmas tree, is a beloved tradition and a HUGE money maker for the Vatican.
The pope, given he feels so strongly about it, should go ahead the CANCEL the Vatican nativity.
That would be a shot heard all over the world.
He has the power to do so and he KNOWS that he has the power.
Do NOT underestimate this pope or be deceived by his apparent naivety. He knows the power he commands.
So this is a GREAT opportunity. Not moving to the Papal Apartments was one thing. Now here is another great chance to really show that his words COUNT.
