Francis Refuses to Bless, Doesn't Want to Offend Non-Catholics
#1
Well, I'm offended by his failure to give the Apostolic Blessing!

From Gloria.tv

During his day visit to Sicily on September 15, Pope Francis also met young people.


At the end, he refused to give the Pontifical Blessing allegedly in order not offend the “many non-Catholic Christians, those of other religions, and agnostics”.

Instead of a blessing, Francis prayed to the Lord to bless the youth.

If Francis truly believes in this strange argument, he needs to abolish the Catholic Faith altogether in order not to offend all the Non-Catholics who are present wherever he shows up.

Quite frankly, I wouldn't want to receive a blessing from Francis, Cupich, Tobin, McElroy, Marx, etc.

Isn't that his plan? His actions appear to demonstrate that is the case... Just sayin' Pigeons

That's not very ecumenical of him.

He could always use Pope Pius IX's blessing for Anglicans: "Ab illo benedicaris, in cujus honore cremaberis."

I'd say he's been working it it, but the silly thing just won't die, no matter how much lead you put into it.

Nothing else to say about the Vicar of Christ. Just biding my time until the next conclave and an investigation into the most recent one and a judgement upon the current and previous pontificates.

I may never know, but it would be nice to know if my suspicions were deemed true.

I have known many Protestants and people of various other religions who would be very happy to receive an apostolic blessing from Pope Francis.

Most people would, which is what makes his refusal to bless them so abysmally stupid!

Why does this Pope guy seemingly love to PO his own flock as he coddles to the masses of sinners? He never offers them any recompense options for their sins, only lets/encourages them to continue to wallow in it.
