"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Bergolio and the Church of the poor?

Bergolio and the Church of the poor?

A poor Pope ?

A poor Curia ?

A poor Cardinalate ?

A poor Bishop's Conference ?

No. All of those ordained men will live lives of pomp, circumstance, luxury, and wealth.

O, to be sure, there will be lots of talk about poor this and poor that and poor the other thing and there will be frequent references to field hospitals and peripheries but the Hierarchy sleeps in luxurious accommodations and gets to eat and drink what it desires and they get to have their gatherings in high quality places.

But, not to worry. The Church will be poor

Poor Quality Pope.

Poor Quality Cardinals.

Poor Quality Bishops.

Poor Quality Priests.

Poor Quality Catechesis.

Poor Quality Mass

Poor Quality Sacraments

Poor Quality Discipline

Poor Quality Theology

OK, Franciscus, you've got control but you are not going to ruin ABS'  life or his Faith or his happiness.

ABS will assist at the Real Mass at a Trad Chapel, Keep The Faith once delivered, Live Tradition and, occasionally, even listen to such music as this  because it reminds him of the musings of the Neo-Theologians whose lilting prose is much like the song - sort of uplifting, vaguely spiritual, but, ultimately, comprising a ghastly species of theological torpor.
