Meet Bishop Francis

I have thought long and hard about this, and now a decision is made. In this blog, Francis will exclusively referred to as the bishop of Rome, unless and until he starts to consistently refer to himself as the Pope.

I am sick and tired of this continued parade of fake humility, that reveals a self-centredness worthy of Obama, and an obsession with the way he is perceived that completely neglects the kingly role he is called to fulfil.

Enough. Enough. Enough.

Bishop Francis of Rome it is, then. “Pope Francis” will only be used as tag, so that it is easier to find the blog posts. In titles and text, it will be exclusively “bishop of Rome” or bishop Francis. If you think this is irreverent, then reflect how reverent the bishop is himself.

Some of us still love the Papacy, and this is getting tired.

    Your words never fail to temper my resolve and galvanise my faith. I thank God for them.

  3. When someone is elected to the Papacy, I believe that they should accept all that comes with it. If they do not want to do so, they should refuse the nomination and allow the voting to continue, IMHO.

  4. The Pope shares in Christ’s threefold office of priest, prophet and king. I cannot for the life of me understand why “Bishop” Francis is ignoring the kingly function, choosing instead to be the pauper outside the gates of the palace. True humility would have rather seen him refuse his election to the office of supreme pontiff, knowing full well his great disdain for all the glorious splendour and regality of the papacy (which was so beautifully emphasized by his predecessor).

  5. It’s when the irritation converts to laughter that Francis will discover he has created a few problems for himself.

  6. I am afraid that we shall simply have to sit out the Bergoglio papacy and pray for better times.
