Pope Creates Five New Cardinals – One Is An Auxiliary Bishop

Francis has again decided to abide closely to the ceiling of 120 electors established by Paul VI in 1975, and when he gives the red hat to the five on June 28, he will have created 49 of the 121 electors that will have a right to vote in the next conclave. Link

49 is still too many since they are very likely to be leftist carbon copies of HH.

Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga loses it

Interesting. Now they're going after one another. Cardinal Oscar is a Latin American 'progressive' nobody who has been and still is close to Pope Francis. Of course, he will defend his friend. Cardinal Burke will not respond. He's got too much class to get into the mud with this clown. Personally, I would speak to Cardinal Rodríguez privately (no witnesses) and, in so many words, would advise him to keep his big taco eating mouth shut or I would shut it for him.

This picture was taken 3 years ago. Most (some?) of us were filled with optimism and anticipated a wonderful pontificate. A humble man (he carried his own luggage) was the new visible leader of the Catholic Church. Slowly, at first, our expectations remained unfulfilled and we were treated to something completely different than what we had hope for.

Zimbabwe Pastor Tried to Walk on Water - Was Eaten By Crocodiles

President Trump invited Pope Francis for lunch on his mega yacht.

The Pope accepted, and during lunch a puff of wind blew the Pontiff's zucchetto ( little white hat) off, right into the water. It floated off about 50 feet, then the wind died down and it just floated in place.

The crew and the secret service security team were scrambling to launch a boat to go get it, when Trump waved them off, saying "Never mind, boys, I'll get it."

Fatima: Francis Refuses to Kneel in Front of the Blessed Sacrament

In 2015, we can see that he clearly has a problem kneeling. I would guess he has arthritis in one or both hips (and/or knees) which has deteriorated further in the past 2 years. He does make exceptions (when there are cameras present) and likely has assistance for this kind of photo op. It is doubtful that he can kneel down on his own without assistance. Being obese doesn't help his condition.

Dancing Pope?
Judging from a private video of the event, this doesn't seem to be true. It is rather the cameraman who is hopping up and down.

Don't forget, when he was known as Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Pope Francis worked as a bar bouncer in Buenos Aires. He had to have picked up a few moves from the 'old days.' He may have been tired when the Jewish delegation visited. However, when he's well rested and with his friends, Pope Francis can dance.

Gay-movie lover and archbishop of San Francisco died

The actions of the Archbishop emeritus of San Francisco will live long after him.

"De mortuis nil nisi bonum dicendum est."
Loosely translated means “speak only good about the dead.” I'm not sure why that is true but here's one man's opinion.

We act as if we were justified in singing his praises at the funeral oration, and inscribe only what is to his advantage on the tombstone. This consideration for the dead, which he really no longer needs, is more important to us than the truth, and, to most of us, certainly, it is more important than consideration for the living. S.
