WOW.

He openly asked God to intervene. That was over 3-weeks ago.

Tens of thousands have died.

He must know that he failed.

He must know that he has much say with God as I do — and I might even contend that I have a better relationship with God since he knows I am, totally 100% honest, no nonsense.

The Pope has failed.

Look at the picture. He is slumped to a side.

That he dropped his ‘Vicar of Christ‘ title is NO COINCIDENCE.

He knows he is NOT the ‘Vicar of Christ‘.

He know that he has been an imposter.

Pope Francis Dropping The ‘VICAR OF CHRIST’ Title — Canon Anthony Churchill, STL, From The U.K. Has This To Say.

by Anura Guruge


Father Anthony Churchill, STL, of Sussex, U.K. is one of my closest collaborators when it comes to my papal work. Do a search on this blog for ‘Fr. Churchill’.

He, as the STL, denotes (see below) is extremely knowledgeable on theology. He has spent much time in Rome and has has concelebrated Mass with Paul VI in Rome and Pope Benedict XVI in London.

The Vicar of Christ

The interesting fact about this new layout of the Vatican Year Book is political rather than theological. Such a change could hardly have been made without the knowledge and approval of the Pope himself. It is at once strange and, to my mind, most inappropriate.

Theology 

This kind of decision does not in any way alter Catholic theology.

In Catholic teaching the Bishop of Rome is in virtue of that office the successor of St Peter, and as such he is the visible sign and instrument of the unity of the Church worldwide.

Various titles have been acquired over the centuries, which reflect historical realities. Thus the Pope is considered as the Primate of Italy and Archbishop of the Roman Province. Neither title is essential to his office, but have developed over the centuries.

The most important titles are “Servant of the servants of God” invented by Pope St Gregory the Great in the sixth century. It describes what Pope ought to be.

The other is “Vicar of Christ”.

This expresses the Pope’s function as Peter’s successor. I believe that it came into use in the late Middle Ages. Before that it had been more common to speak of the Pope as “Vicar of Peter”.  Either way these titles describe what the Pope is called to be and to do.

Whether or not we use these titles does not take away from what we see as the God given function of the Pope as Peter’s successor,  all that goes with that.

Politics 

That said, I think this is a most odd decision. It seems to elevate the importance of the particular individual who happens to be the Pope at any one time.

In my view these ancient titles are part of our Catholic tradition and reflect the historical development of the Papacy over the centuries.

This decision, whoever was responsible, was ill judged.

The Pope is not to impose his own will on the Church without regard to the Faith and practice handed down. He is called to “preside in love” over the whole Church and to serve the unity of the Church as shepherd and teacher.

I fear that the present Pope does not always act wisely in this regard.

With ‘Stay At Home’ Folks Are Getting Desperate For Porn — They Are Even Looking At ‘National Geographic’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. ‘Search Engine Search Terms’ for hits that came to THIS BLOG — today. 34 from folks looking for ‘National Geographic Porn’!


Click image to access my last post on ‘National Geographic’ topless pictures (hardly porn)!


High number of hits on this blog today. I was hoping that they would be for my highly topical & significant post on ‘Vicar on Christ‘. Yes, I had a number of hits on that. I am pleased.

But, MOST hits today (other than from my 500+ daily followers) were for those Googling: ‘National Geographic topless porn‘!

34 of those searches came to this blog.

Obviously, I only get a very, very, very small fraction of the total searches.

That means that there must have been THOUSANDS of searches on: ‘National Geographic topless porn‘.

That is SAD! That is funny. That is SAD.

How desperate do you have to be to search on this.

Alas, I am NOT an expert porn. Folks ask me on a regular basis for recommendations and I have to always disappoint them.

But, if my topless posts help, I am glad.

Help yourself. Be my guest. Go to town.

SMILE.

Pope Francis Drops His ‘VICAR OF CHRIST’ Title! Strange Timing. This Is HUGE!

I have always maintained that the Pope as ‘Vicar of Christ’
has moral responsibilities.

This is HUGE!


The implications are staggering.

And in the midst of the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic?

Timing is extremely strange & suspect.

Basically the pope is saying: ‘I do NOT represent Christ/God on Earth. Do not hold me responsible. I am just the Bishop of Rome‘.

Cardinal Gerhard Müller points out that in the new presentations of the titles of the Pope, there are mixed together titles with dogmatic significance with those that do not bear such weight and who have a historical background (such as “Sovereign of the State of the Vatican City”).

German Cardinal Gerhard Müller supposedly called this an “embarrassment” & “a theological barbarism“. Wow.

Make up your own mind.

This is HUGE. Trust me on that.

The Timing? The Timing?

This is crazy.

I have said that he is the Donald Trump of Popes. SMILE.

But, maybe Donald Trump will try to buy this title from the Pope. It has to be worth Trillions.

Pope Asks God To Stop The Virus (i.e., COVID-19) — So Everything Is Going To Be A-OK. Rejoice!

Stop! STOP!

It is all going to be A-OK.

The popeVicar of Christ & the Primate of Italy — has finally decided that he is going to ask God to stop this.

About bloody time — wouldn’t you say?

What was he waiting for? Christmas?

I am NOT even going to ask why God needs to be asked.

Wasn’t God AWARE?

Possible. Did God too think it was a hoax?

All this stuff with God is very confusing to I.

Christians tell me, repeatedly, that God does NOT micromanage and that God gave ‘us’ free will. Wel …

So, why hasn’t it stopped already?

Shouldn’t the pope have asked for God to cure those stricken as well.

I am going to start counting days to see how long it takes God to take action.

Join me.

But, STOP.

Everything is going to be A-OK.

Rejoice.

Pope Francis Getting Trapped In An Elevator For 25 Minutes Ultimate Proof That He Has NO SPECIAL Standing With God.

by Anura Guruge


Click image for ‘Reuters’ original. Good for more, much more.


One of the eight (or nine) OFFICIAL TITLES held by the pope is Vicarius Christi (Vicar of Christ). That means he is Christ’s REPRESENTATIVE on Earth.

This has always supposed to signify that the Pope’s had a SPECIAL, UNIQUE relationship with God. Essentially a hot line with God.

Well I have always suspected that.

Pope Francis can’t even stop the fires in the Amazon. That has to be trivial for God.

Now this. God lets this happen to him?

So, you can only come up with the following rationalizations:

    1. God has one heck of a sense of humor and likes making Pope Francis the butt of it more often than not.
       …
    2.  God is like Trump and does not feel any obligation to take care of those that work for him directly.
      ….
    3. There is NO GOD!
      ….
    4. God is impotent — as in being powerless.
      ….
    5. Pope Francis is not Vicarius Christi.

What do YOU think? You decide. But, it was very telling. Pope stuck in an elevator for 25 minutes and late for his Sunday noontime Angelus.

When I saw this I couldn’t resist SHARING this with you.

Pope’s obviously trip.

Happened to Pope Pius XII (the WW II pope) too right after his election as they were leaving the Sistine Chapel.

French Cardinal Jean Verdier, upon seeing this, PUNNED in Latin “Vicarius Christi in terra!”

The pun being that this could mean either “the Vicar of Christ on Earth” (one of the pope’s title) or the Vicar of Christ is on the ground.

Papal trivia that I carry in my head.

Other than acknowledging that I am ‘touched’ I am not going to say much about this.

When I saw this I realized to my horror that I have no idea where Don & Sandy stood on religion let alone know what their religious persuasion was. All I can say with some certainty is that I am pretty sure they did not go to church, too often, on Sunday mornings. They could have been Catholics for all I know.

If this in any way helps the parents cope with the unimaginable loss, I am glad.

In any and all situations like this, I, knowing that the pope maintains a title that says he is Vicar of Christ, just wish the pope would have interceded BEFORE the tragedy. Blessing kids after they have died, to me, seems disingenuous and pointless. The kids, by definition, should be in a good place. So the pope’s blessing isn’t going to do much at this stage. C’est la vie.

Dear Pope Francis. Let me be a tad blunt.

What HAVE YOU, in the name of Christ, done about the persecution and killings of Christians — the Kenyan massacre but one egregious example?

Pope Francis you can’t just go around, forever, taking selfies and making meaningless pronouncements WITHOUT taking some responsibility for what is happening in the World.

Pope Francis you have held this job for 2 full years.

The Honeymoon is over.

Time to GROW UP, STEP UP TO THE PLATE and be ACCOUNTABLE.
You can’t shrug away your responsibilities forever.

Though a great fan of yours (and the ONLY one that can prove in PRINT that I said you could be pope) I am getting a tad fed up with YOU.

You, thank God, are not I. I am nothing. So is everybody else on this world, bar YOU.

You are the VICAR of Christ.

You and YOU ALONE hold that amazing title.

Pope Francis, in case you have forgotten, let me PLEASE remind YOU.

You, Pope Francis, are VICAR OF CHRIST.

If I was Vicar of Christ, trust me, I would not tolerate the persecution and killings. I would be on HIS CASE.

Why are YOU, Pope Francis, as the Vicar of Christ, NOT doing anything other than making meaningless pronouncements and eating too much pasta?

Pope Francis, get on the blower or send an e-mail.

Tell Christ that YOU want this to end.

Pope Francis, PLEASE do NOT dissapoint me. Pope Francis PLEASE do NOT let the side down.

Pope Francis, in case you have forgotten, YOU are Vicar of CHRIST.

For Christ’s sake do something.
