Francis, I hope, is playing with the media. He must know that in Christ alone is true peace....all else, however well-meaning, is enmity with God.
What a moron or, at best, a manipulative cynic. Who is waging the fiercest, longest running, deadliest, most intractable war in the world? True Believers, mostly of Islam, to be sure, but "religious" people none the less.
I am starting to wonder if this pope even believes in Jesus Christ, as he seems way over concerned with conditions and comforts of people here on earth and I haven’t seen him all that concerned with people’s souls.
The slug did not reach the threshold necessary for me to follow a Reuters link at this time. The Press has shown a marked retarded tendency of late with regard to describing a leftward tilt in this Pope's doctrine that doesn't hold up under closer examination.
The subtle differences between Francis and Benedict XVI are so open to anyone's honest investigation I see no reason to strain at merely guessing at them second hand through any post-modern journalist's spectacles.
This was one of the most pathetic Christmas messages I have ever heard. Including the example of illegal immigrants overwhelming Italy. The only thing missing was a call for those nasty Americans to let every one in.
“Grant that migrants in search of a dignified life may find acceptance and assistance. May tragedies like those we have witnessed this year, with so many deaths at Lampedusa, never occur again!”
You cannot think the wolves will lie down with the sheep.
True peace will come when the one who;s birth we just honored once more returns as the great KING.
YAY,, another POPE bumper sticker slogan. I can barely keep up.
Dang, the Pope is undermining my cheeky axiom that Atheists are idiots. But I give him a +1 nonetheless.
>> This reads more like a veiled attack on Benedict.
A conclusion you would have drawn without the partiality of Reuters?
