ROMAN NUN SAYS FRANCIS IS CACA.

Yesterday an elderly Roman nun stopped on the street, to tell me angrily that she did not approve of Pope Francis.

In the above picture she is pointing at The Vatican as she goes into a tirade about the Pope and the current state of the church

I was sitting at a cafe near the Vatican walls having an early morning Aqua Frizzante when she approached me.

As she spoke fast and in Italian I did not understand much of what she said.

She appeared to be in her late 70s and I imagine she has given 50 or 60 years to the church and and is now disillusioned by all the terrible scandals.

Of course she is not alone. Many elderly people are disillusioned by the corruption and scandals.

So many elderly people have said to me – “When I go Mass now I keep wondering all during the Mass where the priest where the priest and his hands were last night”

It reminded me of a true story I heard from a priest’s mistress one time.

She slept with him several times a week and attended his Mass everyday.

When she went to Communion, instead of saying “the Body of Christ, he’d say “Christ, what a body”!

That level of cynicism is shocking

Many Catholics are angry and disillusioned.

Looking at the size and pomp of The Vatican this week I just know, deep in my heart and soul, that Jesus never intended any of it.

How did we ever get from Bethlehem and Narareth to The Vatican and it’s great wealth?

In Jesus God walked with men and women.

The Vatican is the symbol of what happens when men walk away from God.

  1. Pat, you’ll remember from your theology lectures that post- Resurrection it’s the Glorified Body so splendid churches and the Vatican are right homage to the Glorified King to which humans must give the best of the best. The Bethlehem stable was the lovely start but not the finishing point.

      3. Have you read the Gospel according to John at any stage either as a seminarian or after ordination? The Jesus of John is so exalted from prologue to epilogue that his feet rarely, if at all, touch the ground, as the Jesuses of the Synoptics do.

  2. Pat, that old chestnut! That joke is well past its sell-by date.
    As for why an Italian nun would select you, a non-Italian looking priest, to vent her spleen against Francis in Italian when there are hordes of Italian speaking clergy to choose from – Well, it makes for a good tale! It looks more like she was giving you directions.
    But as for Francis being caca…………………

Yes I have no doubt that there are kind and good clerics going about their business but even a dimwit can see that there are evil monstrous satanic people both posing as genuine clerics and being protected by a rotten system that supposedly professes Christ. There are men, I will say it again so that you understand, men who are leaders of your church living in mansions off the back of the poor, protecting pardophiles and adulterers. Men who have carried out unspeakable acts against others under the guise of RC priests and bishops. Spare me your faux outrage you fool and direct your get behind me Satan comment to those in your church who continue to carry out emotional, physical and sexual abuse whilst pretending to be men of God. Direct your comment to the bishops, cardinals and Francis who continue to allow this shit show to prosper. Waken up you fool to what is going on around you. Are you blind to the truth? Are you blind to facts? Or, do you just choose to ignore them. Pull me up on grammar all you want. I welcome your constructive criticism.

      But seriously. If this guy is LGBT, that’s fine. If he wants to be a priest, then under present arrangements, he is required to be celibate. So, as long as he is celibate, and that is honestly the case and he is not just fooling himself and us, then he should be fine. But, if he plays away when not being watched, then that is not healthy for him or for us. It just feeds in to dysfunction and hypocrisy, which we don’t need any more of. So, if there is a problem, then somebody who cares for him should lay out, in charity,the facts and the requirements expected if he is to continue to priesthood. If he can’t honestly live that, then he needs to have the honesty and integrity to recognise that and do something else. Otherwise it will be an unhappy experience of him and for us, the Church.
      Enjoy Rome, + Pat. Better weather than Larne, I expect ? You wouldn’t be sitting out in Larne drinking aqua frizzante at this time of year. And glad to hear that Holy Mother The Church is showing you some recognition and respect ?

  21. 8:24. For your information, I haven’t sat on the fence. I have confronted these people head on. I have challenged their hypocrisy to their face. I agree with you that there are good clerics. However they are in a minority. We all aspire to change people’s lives. Sadly quite a few of the rc motley crew have changed lives not for the better. Don’t be too worried about my English. Worry more about the poor and downtrodden and ask yourself how can a vicar of Christ live in opulence when there are people living in poverty. How can that same vicar of Christ cover up abuse? How can that same vicar of Christ look down his nose on people? Continue to make a change for the better in people’s lives and God will bless you. However do not ignore the continued abuse being carried out. As I have done, maybe you should get off the fence
