Another comic Pope|
On December 7, 2005, while being greeted by military men, Pope Ratzinger put on one of their hats trying to be funny. The incident projects the image of a clownish papacy turned toward making the world laugh. It is a quite different message than that of the Man of Sorrows, Who came to teach us the way of the Cross.
Alas, the indirect attacks upon the sacrality of the Papacy under the pretext of pleasing men did not end with Pope Wojtyla. They should have stopped, however, because people have had enough of such antics.
