In an earlier thread, the SSPX was presented as having been misrepresented by Reuters with respect to their attitude toward the Pope. I would like to ask the people here SSPX, friends of SSPX, other Catholics friends of the Catholic Church to make some manifestation here of respect for the Pope. Maybe you disagree with some or maybe most of his dscisions but at leasst remember who he is and what he represents. Please show some demonstraton of respect for the pope in answer to this thread.

He is in my intentions each time I pray the rosary.
I have never heard the priests (or laity) disrespect the holy father. Pope Francis's first homily is pinned up quite noticeably on the hallway bulletin board at the chapel and the priests have informed the laity that the holy father will consecrate his papacy to our lady of Fatima and there will be special prayers offered etc.

God bless Pope Francis. I also pray for him at each Mass and on each rosary, and we have his portrait framed in our living room.

Yes, at the Mass, too.
May he be a good shepherd and example to the flock.

We pray for him in the daily rosary, Mass, and on special occasions. Also we pay attention to his words and seriously try to take heed of his spiritual advice and direction.

Nothing.
Why?
"When one loves the pope one does not stop to debate about what he advises or demands, to ask how far the rigorous duty of obedience extends and to mark the limit of this obligation.  When one loves the pope, one does not object that he has not spoken clearly enough, as if he were obliged to repeat into the ear of each individual his will, so often clearly expressed, not only viva voce, but also by letters and other public documents; one does not call his orders into doubt on the pretext – easily advanced by whoever does not wish to obey - that they emanate not directly from him, but from his entourage; one does not limit the field in which he can and should exercise his will; one does not oppose to the authority of the pope that of other persons, however learned, who differ in opinion from the pope.  Besides, however great their knowledge, their holiness is wanting, for there can be no holiness where there is disagreement with the pope."

St Pius X to the priests of the Apostolic Union,
