This comes from a legitimate news source, which makes it interesting, but it seems almost impossible to believe. Could the new pope have been this hostile and rude, both to his predecessor and Msgr. Marini? I wonder.
Maybe it wasn’t rude. I first thought he was referring to carn-i-VAL, the time of celebration before Lent, the period of repentance and self-denial. It seems like good symbolism to me.
I doubt Jesus wore elaborate clothes.
I’m sure he wore furs to keep warm, not as decor.
I LOVE Pope Francis!
He doesn’t seem to have any pharisee blood in him.
Fatti non Parole. It will be interesting to see what he does with the curial appointments. He has a rare opportunity now to clear the decks. Oremus.
I have my doubts about the accuracy. It happened while the Conclave was still sealed. For someone to have related this means someone broke the vow of secrecy. Now I can understand the comment on the papal apartment since the Pope is, by all accounts, accustomed to a simpler lifestyle.
A Jesuit is a different breed of priest, open and honest.
A needed fresh beeze has arrived in Rome.
