I see from the top photo that when Popes visit Poland, they travel with three giant cardinals behind and four midget cardinals in front.
For a second I thought the end of that umbrella in the sixth picture was a cigar. Maybe he was going to meet Cardinal Dziwisz later for cognac….
On the handclasp …
You can expect certain Trads to infer a great deal from that picture, 99.99% of which will be detraction, at best…
wow, that does look like a stogey in the umbrella shot
The first shot looks like a “Where’s Waldo?” poster.
Holy Holy Father, Batman! The Penguin’s after the Pontiff! (referring to umbrella photo)
Do take a closer look at pics 1 & 2. The Pope is not wearing an amice, and everyone else is wearing one of those contemporary albs, sans amice. The Pope’s alb was too long for him as well, just look at the pics where he is giving communion to the President of Poland during the Warsaw Mass. Now, either the papal sacristan forgot to pack an amice, or someone tried to put the Holy Father in one of those modern things, and he refused.
This Week in the Theocracy
It’s me, Jacob the Syrian Hamster, loyal beadle of the Feline Theocracy here for another set of our favorite posts from members of the Theocracy.
“After you.” “No, after you.” “No, after you.”
“No, after you.” “No, after…oh for heaven’s sakes, take my hand and we’ll walk together!”
