I hope he has quiet neighbors. I hate having to bang on the ceiling when the folks upstairs turn the bass all the way up.
I like the new Pope’s modest ways.. If only our president would be so frugal.
This modesty and vow of poverty stuff could get a guy in trouble with the unionized clergy big-wigs.
I like cooking for myself.
I am just peculiar about the way things should be done.
And I like my modest studio apartment.
Everything I own fits in the trunk of my car.
I can live anywhere in the world with little effort.
I identify with Francis on this.
I would take the apartment next to his, if he will have me.
Maybe they will list it on craigslist.com
What kind of food does he cook?
Here is a link to a translation of the speech on Vatican Radio’s website: http://en.radiovaticana.va/news/2013/03/27/bergoglios_intervention:_a_diagnosis_of_the_problems_in_the_church/en1-677269
and here is the link to his address at his first general audience: http://en.radiovaticana.va/Articolo.asp?c=677277
I love the humility, I really do. But this guy needs to understand he is the Pope. If he is going to do any meaningful reform he will have to command the respect of the Curia. He is on the brink of looking weak.
In Before the Haters!
This American Methodist likes this Pope more and more each day...
MAY HIS DAYS ON THIS EARTH BE MANY...
