Habemus Pappam Ping!
I’m concerned with his views on so called, “social justice” and the problems he has with the free market system.
I am very happy we have a new Pope! I have read he studied Chemistry and then decided to become a Priest. I have been trying to get back to my Catholic roots, and although I consider myself Catholic, I have not lived up to all of my obligations. But some of this gave me pause:
—my mother recently passed away, but was born exactly one year before Pope Francis
— On December 13, 1969 the new Pope became a Priest. My mother went into labor with me that day, but because they thought I was going to be born premature, they did everything they could to stop labor and I was
born two days later, perfectly healthy at 6 pounds.
—My fathers name: Francis! (although protestant)He enjoyed his study of Chemistry!
—My daughter was born on the day the new Pope became a Cardinal
I know, weird coincidences, but God works in peoples lives in mysterious
ways! He’s telling me something! My mother’s family was a big Catholic family, and if my parents were alive my mother would find the name Pope Francis to be wonderful, as my father was not Catholic and it would have also made her laugh.
No where in the bible does it mention a pope, praying to Mary or saints, or needing to go to a priest to confess your sins. Also they are nowhere in the holy scriptures that says to kneel and kiss the pope ring. You only have to pray through Jesus Christ to God to be forgiven of ones sins. I only kneel to God not any man and i will trust Gods word over the traditions of men. Not a big fan of idol worship. Pope hat looks like Dagon worshiping hat to, yeah nope.
