  • The Simplicity of Pope Francis

    The Seven Innovations of Pope Francis (as shown in the attached pictures below)

    1. Changed the golden throne with a wooden chair ...
    something more appropriate for
    the disciple of a carpenter.

    2. Did not want the gold-embroidered red stole,
    heir of the Roman Empire, nor the red cape...

    3. Uses same old black shoes, not the classic red.

    4. Uses a metal cross, not of rubies and diamonds.

    5. His papal ring is silver, not gold.

    6. Uses the same black pants under the cassock,
    to remember that he is just another priest.

    Have you discovered the 7th?
    Removed the red carpet ...
    He is not interested in fame and applause ...

    Kung ganyan ka-simple ang ating santo papa, dapat tayo rin. Kung ang santo papa is trying to reach out to the masses, dapat tayo rin. Kung ang santo papa mismo ay hindi materialistic, dapat tayo rin.

    Human beings, they're quite a paradox. At first glance they're so primitive: genetic impurities, no telepathy, violent, and yet they've created so many beautiful ways to convey their ideas - literature, art, music. [#98 In the Flesh]

      Hmm...let's see....

      something more appropriate for
      the disciple of a carpenter. - hindi uso ang silya noong panahon nila Kristo, so kung talagang "appropriate" for the disciple of a carpenter, dapat ay nakaupo sa sahig

      2. Did not want the gold-embroidered red stole,
      heir of the Roman Empire, nor the red cape...historically incorrect: the stole is not part of the attire of the Roman emperor. See pictures on this Wikipedia article as well as that of each Roman emperor: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_emperor

      3. Uses same old black shoes, not the classic red. Pope John Paul II's shoes were brown, not red. So hindi "pauso" ni Pope Francis ang hindi paggamit ng traditional red shoes for a pope

      4. Uses a metal cross, not of rubies and diamonds. kasi hindi naman talaga kasama sa usual attire ni Pope Francis ang rubies and diamonds. Just like you don't wear a bowtie or a necktie kapag naka-barong Tagalog ka

      5. His papal ring is silver, not gold.Not true. Even Pope Benedict's ring was gold-plated silver

      6. Uses the same black pants under the cassock,
      to remember that he is just another priest. kasi all-black naman talaga ang tamang attire ng pari, whether naka-sutana or naka-clerical shirt and pants. Dito lang naman sa 'Pinas nagpuputi ang pari

      So was Pope Benedict. Ilang beses niyang sinabi sa interviews na ayaw talaga niyang maging Pope...kung siya ang masusunod, mas gusto niya na sumulat na lang ng maraming research papers. That was why he was relieved to have resigned from the papacy, kasi makakapahinga rin siya ng maluwag.

      As for Blessed Pope John Paul II... ) (sorry, I'm not a fan)

      (Well, come think about it...regardless of kung sino man ang nahalal na Santo Papa, hindi naman talaga mawawala ang applause at, like it or not, magiging sikat naman talaga siya. So...no contest here )

      Gaya nga ng sinabi ni thepinoycatholic, galit kay Pope Benedict XVI ang sumulat ng nasabing listahan. This list, IMO, is a smear job aimed at the Pope Emeritus. Pero mas mahabang usapan 'yan...this is a very sensitive subject which even some priests in the Philippines have an opinion about (hulaan n'yo na lang kung saang side ang majority sa kanila )

      Don't get me wrong here, I like Pope Francis and I think the style of his papacy will help rebuild the reputation of the clergy. Hindi ko lang gusto 'yung mga bad press kay Pope B16 and nag-agree ako (for once) kay TPC tungkol sa pagkakagawa (at pagkalat) ng list na ito.
