"Dear" pope? That's like referring to robbers as "gentlemen." (seriously, how often do we hear something like, "Then the gentleman came into my shop, put a gun to my head, and demanded all the cash in the cash register"?)

When “who am I to judge” is used to attack faithful priests, “dear pope” isn’t fitting. When faithful bishops are removed for what is little more than a media smear campaign, “dear pope” isn’t fitting. When the pope meets with atheists and abortion promoters, but won’t answer his advisors, the cardinals, “dear pope” isn’t fitting. When faithful Catholics are blanketly accused of being “rigid” and other derogatory terms from the 1970’s and 1980’s are hurled at them, “dear pope” isn’t fitting. I pray for the pope as is my duty. I show him the respect that is due to him, given his office. His behavior has caused significant hardship for people I love, and I am not bound to like him in spite of it- so I don’t.  I think he likes to appear humble and merciful, but he has repeatedly demonstrated that he fails miserably at those things. For the good of his soul and the good of the Church, this must be emphasized to make it clear to others who might not see it as clearly. “Dear pope” is not fitting, but we should pray that it will be- if not him, than a successor that we will see soon.

Pax et Bonum!  I agree with the "Dear Pope" not endearing us but moreso himself and his agenda.  I pray for him to receive enlightenment and to listen to his advisors - the faithful ones.  It's true this has caused stress and hardship for people (the people of God) and added financial strain searching high and low for high and low Tridentine Masses all over the dioceses.  One has to speak humble, not just appear humble and we have been given arrogance and self-satisfaction without explanation or even concern that we might have a question that needs clarification.  "Lord, YOU are all and I am nothing....."  angeltime :pray2:

Oh my!  I guess I kind of created a bit of a firestorm. 

That's understandable since Pope Francis may well be the worst pope we have ever had and we all feel a great deal of anger about what is going on.

If you look at my words in context:

Quote:Oh, and as for Pope Francis' motives, I see this as a power grab.

It's all about incrementalism.

Of course, I may be wrong and I hope that I am and I pray every day for our dear pope.

You'll see that I made some pretty damning statements about him and ended with some cya statements and a bit of tongue in cheek mixed with an ounce of respect for his office and his soul.  Kind of like "fearless leader".

Yet I do have the greatest sympathy for those souls who are in danger of damnation as I realize that there but for the grace of God go I.  Those souls who are in danger of being included with the ones falling like snowflakes into the fires which Our Lady showed to the children at Fatima are my mission in life.  In fact my birthday is July 13.  So I grieve for the loss of a soul such as his and they are constantly on my mind.

Those are the souls I want to snatch from the evil one--the ones he is so sure are completely within his grip!
