How will Pope Francis be remembered? Well, he's still chugging along on half a colon, and may have more plans up his sleeve, but it's time to take stock of the "Pope of Surprises". Here are a few entrants for the forthcoming World Cup (to be conducted using Twitter polls), and further nominations are requested

My Italian is weak, but I am told that this is the pope's favourite portrait..

  • Franciscan friars of the Immaculate
  • Order of Malta
  • Amoris Laetitia
  • Response to the Dubia
  • Pachamama worship
  • Slapping of a lady pilgrim
  • The church in China
  • Appointment of Cupich, Farrell, Tobin etc.
  • The Scalfari interviews
  • Imaginative ex-aeroplana teaching
  • Encouragement of Emma Bonino
  • Encouragement of James Martin
  • Management of Vatican finances
  • Finance of Rocketman
  • Reception of Cardinal Zen
  • Traditionis Custodes
  • Pope Francis book of insults
  • Vatican Christmas scenes 
  • "Live long and prosper, dear Tridentine Mass enthusiasts," says the Pope.

    To nominate further achievements (and be as polite as I am, for I have not said anything either for or against these remarkable accomplishments), please reply to this post or else reply to the corresponding Tweet. We'll start when I am ready.

    1. You are missing some things, for example: his allegiance with the humanist secular and economic agenda (Build Back Better, Council for Inclusive Capitalism) the mishandling of the case of the perverse ex-cardinal McCarrick, his declarations about diversity of religions on the Abu Dhabi document.


    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.
