Yet God is mentioned.  Did Jesus Christ cease being God and if He did, why did I miss the memo?  You'd think something like that would have been read out Mass..

To be fair, the Incarnation is one of the central tenets of Christianity. Failing to mention it specifically does seem a little too ecumenical. Although, I suspect the Holy Father wanted to avoid preaching to the choir in his speech. He was talking to the German government, after all, and something tells me they aren't a particularly religious bunch.

Then the more reason they should hear it, or be reminded. Not that I'm criticizing the pope. Some used to go to brothels. In other words, I think we tend to watch a little too closely, and if we are, you can rest assured that others are watching very closely too. How would you like to live in a fishbowl like this? It's bad enough when you try to think out loud here and view a topic from above, or outside the proverbial box, with fresh eyes and run into all those swimming in the mainstream. The Holy Father is much more covered and criticized.

In the end, you can blame the "faithful" for putting Mammon over God. The problem is wimpy Catholics who saw the easy way and chose it. Simple as that.

So instead of criticizing and being scandalized. Do something! Sometimes we sound like Pharisees. "You can't do that on the Sabbath Day!" said with a whiny voice in need of some cheese.
