not all Americans know the term FASCHING ~ but they do know what A CARNIVAL is ~ but I take it he was referring to the period of time when such festivals and parades take place ~ and, that’s over.

I take it you are saying that he had in mind the Carnival celebration preceding Lent? I think that would be likely true, if he actually said this at all. However, I can't see how that would mitigate anything? The mozetta which our new pope refused to wear is not a Carnival costume after all. Therefore, such a statement would seem to most people I think to be quite dismissive of the previous pope and the MC Msgr. Marini. Is it really possible he would have said such a thing? I just don't know.

I think The Church may well have a Pope that is for go, not for show.

he's well known for his attitudes on personal possessions ~ so nobody would take his statement as anything but a personal preference.

Maybe he's a crypto-protestant ~ after all they never came out in the open in Italy, and only briefly in Spain. In Argentina he's been known to associate with them.
