And the hits just keep on comin, folks...imagine what the faith will look like by bedtime tonight!

BrendanD Wrote:At his audience with the members of the media this am, the pope imparted his Apostolic Blessing in silence out of "respect" for the non-Catholics and atheists present:

He imparted his apostolic blessing, however, in silence – out of respect, he said, for the fact that “not everyone present belongs to the Catholic faith and others do not believe.” “I respect the conscience of each one of you”, he said, “knowing that each one of you is a Child of God.May God bless you”.

My source? It's straight from the Vatican, folks: http://www.news.va/en/news/pope-francis-...a-and-name

Because, what's the Church for if not to show proper respect for Athiesm and personal conscience, through which we are saved, right? Am I right?

At the same link, he also said:

"We are not called to communicate ourselves, but this trinity…the Church exists to communicate Truth, Goodness and Beauty”.

Whew. I thought the Pope would have instructed on the Trinity differently, but hey...he must be right, after all he was chosen by "truth, goodness and beauty" to be pope, right?
Rome has lost the faith as Our Lady warned us about. We have a Pope that doesn't believe in anything the Catholic Church stands for. The next thing you will see is womynpriests and the doing away with priestly celibacy.
He also said, chillingly:

"The protagonist of all these events, said the Pope, is the Holy Spirit: “it was He who inspired the decision of Benedict XVI for the good of the Church, it was He who inspired the choice of the Cardinals”. It is important to keep this in mind, he added, as we try to interpret the events of the past few days."

The Holy Spirit told Benedict to go "for the good for the Church" -- essentially deposing him -- and inspired the Cardinals to elect Francis, presumably for the good of the Church and to correct the course Benedict had taken.  Implicit in this comment is that you must view all of this as an act of God.

I don't and I make no apology for it.  
And a Dominican rips into...well, you know.  "To set our duty to serve the poor against the splendor of divine worship is nothing less than to split Christ in two". http://shar.es/eCpRA


And of course here we have Cardinal Mahoney, who is overjoyed.  Perhaps some technically gifted fishy could embed this graphic?

Truth, Goodness and Beauty are names of God.  Calm the hell down.  Chill out
Minutes after the election result was declared in the Sistine Chapel, a Vatican official called the Master of Ceremonies offered to the new Pope the traditional papal red cape trimmed with ermine that his predecessor Pope Benedict XVI gladly wore on ceremonial occasions.

"No thank you, Monsignore," Pope Francis is reported to have replied. "You put it on instead. Carnival time is over!"

What class.  What humility.  Benedict's entire papacy waved away in minutes, labeled as a "carnival".

By their fruits ye shall know them....

Amazingly, we may look back at Benedict's reign as some kind of liturgical golden age if this continues!

On the other hand, the stuff about Pope Francis throwing Cardinal Law out of St. Mary Major is good(if true). I can't imagine Mahoney will keep smiling when he learns about that.

Has there been any confirmation on that yet?
