When Pope Francis was informed that good, orthodox catholics had prayed more than 3,000 rosaries for him, he found nothing better to do than to mock them speaking with “progressive” nuns.
When a bunch of spirited “Charismatics” prayed for him, “speaking in tongues” like consummated dope heads, Pope Francis found it fitting to kneel and pray.
As they say: spot the difference.
At the beginning, Francis thought these Charismatics were like a “samba school”. But then he saw …. that there were many of them, so he changed his mind.
On this occasion, there were 50,000 of them; plus the press, the TV, the entire media enchilada.
Therefore, kneeling (something he never does in front of a Tabernacle) was certainly worthwhile.
