From The Remnant
By Michael J. Matt
He rarely will bless the faithful, preferring instead to wave at them or wrap them up in a bear hug...
He makes fun of altar boys folding their hands. . .
He won't kneel in front of the Blessed Sacrament. . .
He won't wear the shoes of the fisherman...
He won't live in the papal apartments...
And now he won't allow Catholics to receive the indulgence that comes with kissing the papal ring...
So, what do we have here?
This is Francis insulting visiting faithful, merely for trying to follow protocol and honor the august office of the papacy. (Note to Francis: It's not about you, Holiness!)
It suggests either severe anger management issues or a kind of out-of-control narcissism that manifests itself in borderline sociopathic behavior. And at the very least, it indicates a loathing for the office of the papacy such as the Church has never before witnessed in an occupant of the Chair of St. Peter.
It's as if it actually infuriates him when the faithful fail to duly appreciate the systematic degradation of the papacy on which he's been working since he first appeared on the loggia and asked us to bless him.
God help us, what is wrong with this man?

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
