Poor Taste

For the celebration of Corpus Christi at Saint John in Lateran, Pope Francis showed up on Sunday evening with this steel crosier. It was given to him by the workers of the steel company Ilva in Genova, Italy, which Pope Francis will visit on June 27th.

The crosier is 170 cm long and weights 3,5 kg.

The Pope is mocked for this. In social media they ask, if the cross is "Star Trek inspired", "I bet William Shattner would be jealous"

He had a scowl and never knelt on the plush kneeler provided for him. This Evil Clown is a joke. I guess we should all look to becoming Super Squirrels.

@Dr Stuart Reiss better for you to be Super Squirrel than Buddhist.

In this particular photo, Francis' face looks thinner than other photos.
