The Role of the Pope’s Duties: his priority lies in getting to know people, understanding how they live, listening to their interests and sharing their sufferings and their joys. The Pope is the unifier of the People of God, he is also the Prime Witness to Faith; This includes both preaching &teaching the word of God…
Basing my post off of this definition, I will now explain to you the anger, disgust, and contradictions I saw/experienced recently dealing with the current Pope (Francis) and his actions.
Now, I do not fully understand myself and why this image greatly upset me, I mean the Pope is no one to me… yet these actions he portrayed infused a spark of anger and vehement that was too impossible to subdue. I know we live in “America the Great” A.K.A. the leader of all Capitalistic societies.. but for the POPE to as well fall into the scheme of consumerism? Disappointment. I would like to hear from those who actually follow Pope Francis on a regulatory basis who would maybe be able to change my POV from negative to positive (although once my mind is made up it is concrete so your attempts might be worthless).
I do not know him nor claim to follow anything else he has ever done while being the Pope; But what I do know is the image of him parading around like a beauty queen on the top of Mercedes Benz… did not sit will with me to say the least.
Your thoughts & comments are always welcomed… my mind is constantly on a power trip.. thank you for taking the journey with me.
