Papist Picture of the Day: Distraction

The pope’s advance-release iPad 3 was clearly beginning to interfere with his duties.

    The trillion dollars worth of real estate, the priceless art, the marble floors, the gold-leafed chair, the Prada slippers…Jesus would throw up if he saw all this in his name…

    • Dymphna

      All owned by the billions of Catholics of every country, speaking all languages. Yeah.

      “But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, “Why wasn’t this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year’s wages.” He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it.

      “Leave her alone,” Jesus replied. “It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.” – The Gospel of John.

      All the things seen in this picture were bought with money. Where does the Church get her money, I ask you? The People. Poor people, rich people, all kinds of people. We give to the Church, because Christ gave the Church to us. We honor the pope because the pope is the vicar of Christ, an apostolic successor, and prince of the apostolic successors.

      You want to melt down the golden cross given to the Church by a poor man and hand it back to him? Who are you to say that ought to be done? Go mind your own business.
