How Would You Act as Pope?

Or perhaps I would simply preserve the garb and protocol proper to the successor of St Peter, so that both others and I would be mindful of the dignity of the Petrine office and would act accordingly. :hmmm:

I didn't say I'd walk around being a slob or disrespectful. Like I said, I would probably wear a black simar/cassock and white sash for my Daily Dress. Thus, I would look like very similar to Bishops and Cardinals, although set apart by the use of white, thus promoting the idea that, although the Pope is first among the Bishops, he is still a Bishop. And what would be wrong with not wanting people to kiss your Ring? Like I said, I'd much prefer people hug me or something than the old Ring kissing.

This is not to say I'd be weak-willed. I'd be perfectly capable of chewing out people, especially Church leaders, who are advocating positions contrary to the Church. You want to advocate a Pro-Choice position, I'll excommunicate faster than you'd know. If someone wants to promote some junk theology, I'll revoke their teaching and publishing privileges very quickly. I would move to strictly enforce the rubrics of the OF and EF Masses. I would not tolerate people trying to "innovate" liturgy or Church doctrine. I would investigate various religious orders that seem to be going down the liberal garbage tube and would not hesitate to shut down problematic groups and force liberal Priest and Bishops to return to the fold. I would be blunt with the liberals who want to turn our Church into some liberal wacky-land: you can either accept Catholic doctrine in full or you can leave, but I will not tolerate attempts to liberalize the Catholic Church against our doctrine. And I'd be just as blunt with SSPX: either accept the Church, Vatican 2 and all, or you're in schism.

Don't confuse be nice, loving and humble with being weak. I would be quite capable of telling people where they can go if they wish to cause problems in the Church.
