The German magazine Titanic, founded in 1979 by former contributors and editors of Pardon, a satirical monthly, after they had a series of conflicts with their publisher, is mocking Pope Benedict XVI and holding the Holy Father up to contempt by depicting him as a senile and incontinent person. See here.
In our modern, paganistic world, the authority of the Holy Father is often challenged, openly defied and even rejected. The early Christians understood Peter's divinely appointed role. They understood that the Lord Jesus appointed Peter to be the guardian and teacher of the Church. They loved him, honored him and obeyed him.
It is the vocation of the Holy Father to proclaim the truth even though it may result in virulent attacks and contempt rather than respect. But it must be understood that disobedience and insults against Christ's Vicar are, in reality, attacks against the loving Heart of Christ.
What do you suppose will be the reward for those who insult and attack the loving and Sacred Heart of Christ? Every attack against the Vicar of Christ represents an attack on Jesus Christ which begs for chastisement.
And so let's pray:
Lord Jesus, shelter our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, under the protection of Your Sacred Heart. Be his light, his strength and his consolation.
V. Let us pray for our Pontiff
R. The Lord presreve and give him life, and make him to be blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies.
Viva Il Papa Benedetto XVI!
I suppose that at times I lose the Christian spirit and this is one of them. I hope they rot in Hell for what they’ve done.
It's not the first time the Pope has been mocked, and it won't be the last. But the Cross of Christ will win in the end.
