    Default WOKE POPE thinking of retirement

    Looking back at his strenuous trip to North America – which he described as "intense," reported the BBC – Francis provided some context to his thoughts. "I don't think I can keep traveling with the same rhythm I used to at my age and with the limitation of this knee," said Francis in references to an injury that has seen him using a wheelchair in public for the first time.

    "I either need to save myself a little in order to continue serving the Church, or I need to consider the possibility of stepping aside," added the pontiff.

    I don't recall a pope retiring in my lifetime......
    Isaiah 6:5
    “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”

    Apparently forgiving Saudis for 9/11 by holding a golf event at a Trump club less than 50 miles from ground zero is as that Papal contingent forgiving by holding an indigenous Canadians people genocide over decades....

    He has been in long enough to ensure his replacement will be even better than he has been.

    Pope Francis is a wonderful, humble man who does much to emulate his Messiah. No wonder the bigots and haters call him "woke" and despise him. Just as the Sadducees and the Pharisees felt about Jesus's condemnation of their ungodly ways, so too do the haters feel about being called out for their hate by Pope Francis.

    To me, "woke" is a complement.

    You're delusional. Many Catholics think he brought a breath of fresh air to that institution. Of course he's not well-liked by the conservative nutjobs.
