Why do the words that come out of the Pope's mouth seem to be such a stark contrast to his witness?
“God does not manifest himself in the power of this world, but speaks to us in the humbleness of his love. …The Wise Men are, thus, models of conversion to the true faith, since they believed more in the goodness of God than in the apparent splendor of power.”...
Pope Francis pointed out how the Magi encountered many difficulties on their journey, the first being their visit to Herod’s palace when they entered Jerusalem, “for they thought it obvious that the new king would be born in the royal palace.”
While this speech was percolating, he was working with the wealthiest of the wealthy commies in the Democratic party and Cardinal O'Malley who is gaga over them, the worst child slaughter of Christians and children since Herod in JudeoChristian history: Barack Obama, and the terrorists oppressors of people of Cuba.
In being face-to-face with Jesus, the Wise Men realize that the ways of God “are quite different from those of men” and that God speaks through humility and love, rather than the “splendor of power.”
Why then does he set up a photo op for Angelina Jolie to help her promote her new Hollywood movie?
Angelina Jolie has been a role model for moral chaos to women.
The Pope prayed for..
the courage to be liberated from our illusions, our presumptions, our ‘lights’; and to seek this courage in the humility of faith, and in this way to encounter the Light, like the holy Wise Men.”
A good prayer.
