A Franciscan, a Dominican, and a Jesuit were out playing golf one day. They were moving along the course quite well until they got stuck behind a group of golfers who were taking quite a long time and weren't letting anyone else play through. Feeling irritated, the three priests went to the club manager to complain. The manager told them that the slow golfers were blind. "It takes them more time," he said. "Please be patient."
The Franciscan was mortified. He got down on his knees and begged God's forgiveness for his anger. The Dominican was also chagrined. He repented of his impatience, and vowed to do more to help the poor and disabled.
However, the Jesuit wasn't impressed. He asked the manager, "why don't you make them play at night?"

Yeah, I'm another non-Catholic who's on the Frankie bandwagon. Part of me wonders if the College of Cardinals collectively woke up a day or two after the conclave and said "Holy shiat! We just elected a Jesuit who's apparently serious about being a Jesuit! Can... can we have a do-over?"

The guy's not going to fix everything that's wrong with the church. He's only one man, and he's only got one lifetime. But he has the potential to do a world of good.


It was great when it all began. I was a regular Frankie fan.

Cardinal 1: Everyone's been riding up our asses to elect either a black pope of someone from South America.
Cardinal 2: Well, why don't we elect that one guy in Africa? He's super Catholic and may carry on Bendict's papacy.
Cardinal 1: Nah, he may try to bring back the inquisition.
Cardinal 3: Who's in Latin America?
Cardinal 2: This guy in Argentina looks decent. And he's supported authoritarian politics in the past so he'd totally be okay with business as usual.
Cardinal 1: And he's white! Bring the guy in!

Lucianni (JP1), "The smiling Pope" with his short stay, is solidly in my top five Papa listing. His great joy alone was enough to earn my regard. Of course "The Good Pope", J23, was the greatest and most necessary Pope ever. I do have faith in Francis even considering some untoward quips in his past. I think he can do great work to restore some of the spirit of Vatican II (open windows etc.) which has been somewhat eroded with JP2 and Benedict. Popin' aint easy.

He'll still use the grandiose Papal residence for meeting dignitaries, but he said he'd much rather live with the people he serves, eat in the cafeteria and be able to cook for himself in the kitchen.

/looks like he *is* practicing what he preaches.

I'd have to agree with you, he's been going against the grain on a lot of things since being elected and I love it cause he's pissing off traditionalist Catholics in the church...


Which might be why he's so keen on cooking his own food.

The Catholic Church is the Titanic and Pope Francis took the wheel as the hull was starting to crack after hitting the iceberg.

It's still going down (metaphorically), but I think Francis has the best chance of making the wreck be not quite as bad as it otherwise would have been.

It's different when the catholic church does it, because they're selling seats in heaven.

He can talk about crap like this all he wants, but as long as the catholic church is the most opulent and decadent institution on earth it's just hypocrisy.


Was the a joke? Or have you never heard of Dubai? Or just about any corporation? They are all may times more opulent then the church.
