“Person Of The Year”: The World Loves Its Own

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

John 15: 18-19

He who has followed with any degree of attention – and with at least a modicum of realism – the events of the last nine months cannot have any doubt as to why Francis is so popular among the wrong crowd.

The last worldly recognition, “Man of the Year” (I still say it in English), is another clear indication of what is happening. “Time” has not given Francis the recognition because his stubborn defence of Catholicism has earned him at least the respect of the world; quite the contrary is the case, as Francis is clearly praised for his work of demolition of the Papacy in particular, and Catholicism in general. The initial presentation of the man in the readers' section (readers get to vote, though not to decide, so every candidate has his own profile) stated Francis has gone against Catholic dogma. This obvious nonsense has been in the meantime corrected, but it goes a long way in explaining why “Time” and the world so much love Francis.

In fact, Francis does not deny dogma, but I personally have no doubt he would if he could. Just look at his many heretical statements to see how uncomfortable the man is with even basic Catholicism. Catholic doctrine just does not match with the workings of this man's mind. If the Depositum Fidei were his to “update”, I have no doubt whatsoever he would on a number of issues, from salvation outside the Church to the primacy of conscience to the attitude towards homosexuality to mention just three.

Francis is the sellout of the year. He has decided to side with the world in such a spectacular fashion that the entire planet had to notice, and could not avoid becoming enthusiastic about it.

Is it a surprise the world loves him as its own?

  1. We live in scary times and these dark days are filled with confusion for most faithful Catholics…Being popular was NEVER what Jesus ran after or sought …HE was seeking to save souls and point those around HIM in the right direction.
    Jesus said: I am the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE!
    These days for me are Bright and Joyful ….I want to prepare for the coming of my Jesus during this Advent season .
    I Pray for Holy Mother Church as we face these dark days ….sometimes I am very sad to see our clergy not speak THE TRUTH …they are not saving souls they are confusing souls.
    That my friends they will all have to answer for.
    Pray for the Restoration and Purification of the Holy Catholic Church and that GOD will give us HOLY priests and a POPE who will always seek the complete TRUTH …and be willing to die for the ONE TRUE FAITH….that is my prayer .

    Amen to all that. What’s most troubling is not that a man like Francis is pope, but that so few Catholics seem to: 1. realize that something’s terribly wrong, 2. show righteous anger at what he’s doing to the Church. It just goes to show how deep and widespread the rot is. Francis is but a symptom of a horrible disease.

    May the Lord have mercy on our sick, sad world!
