I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE POPE IS TALKING ABOUT, AND NEITHER DO YOU (in this photo)
Catholic Vote ^ | January 12, 2014 | JOHN WHITE

In this photograph, I mean.

After all, not knowing what the person is actually saying is what makes a caption contest fun, right?

Besides, if there’s anything we’ve learned in the past year, it’s that having no clue what Pope Francis is saying should never be a hindrance to putting words in his mouth.

And Thomas – sorry for so shamelessly treading on your turf, but it’s such a great picture I couldn’t pass it up.

So readers, have at it. What captions can you come up with for this great photo of Pope Francis?

I took a few stabs at it myself…

“No, I’m serious – the secret to a great leg of lamb is rosemary!”

“This lamb must not like me…he’s demonstrating his trickle down theory down my back.”

“Okay fine, maybe you’re right – I probably wouldn’t have said that if I knew they smelled this bad. For the love…”

pope with lamb

“No, I said the Pope loves you, not ewe.”

“So then I’m like, ‘Hey Monsignor, how much if I wear this sheep around all day?’…ha ha ha!”

“You know what else is hilarious? ‘Get Strangled by a Sheep-Wielding Gypsy Day’ was yesterday, not today, so kindly remove the sweaty livestock from my neck.”

Pope: I am carrying a lamb to symbolize leading the Roman Church.

Vatican Translator: I support the burden of gay children.

Media: The Pope expresses his support of gays adopting!

Vatican PR: The Pope continues to hold to church traditions.

FR Romans: The Media is against the Pope!

... and so it goes.

Never let it be said that Pope Francis asks anybody to do anything he’s not willing to do himself.

The caption that was with the picture:

Pope Francis (L) carrying a lamb on his shoulders as he visits the parish of the Sant’Alfonso Maria de Liguori during the Epiphany day in Rome.

A more detailed description of the events when the picture was taken:

Pope Francis has visited a live nativity re-enactment at the Church of St Alfonso Maria dei Liguori on the outskirts of Rome.

After greeting the 200 costumed participants and a large number of farmyard animals, he made his way to the most important member of the group: the 2-month-old baby Francesco, who had been baptised that morning and played the role of Jesus in the proceedings.

A group of ‘shepherds’ also placed a young lamb on the Pope’s shoulders as children sang Christmas songs and presented the Pope with a bunch of roses.

At the end of the visit, the Pope made a speech to inspire the new year, calling people to pray for all the children who will be born in 2014 and for all grandparents, whom he called ‘the source of wisdom’.

The Pope had been invited to the festivities by Father Dario Criscuoli, the parish priest who organises the large-scale live nativity every year.

Criscuoli said: “The pope was so happy. He told me “Keep it up. Don’t get discouraged”.
