Pope kisses young muslima’s feet












Okay, so the tradition is for the Pope to follow in  the steps of Jesus and  wash the  feet of some faithful on Maundy Thursday , but did he have to go as far as snogging  them? And what’s more, kissing the feet of Young girls? And whats even more, kissing the feet of a young  Muslim female?

Is the old man into foot fetishism since kissing the feet of young girls (and of young  muslim girls to boot) is certainly not the tradition of the Church to my knowledge?

I also wonder how the traditionally  "possessive" muslim males will take this encroachment on one of their chattel by a Catholic man?










Psssssssst, Pope Benedict, come baaaack, all is forgiven!

  2. Thank you Geoffff. Reciprocated with "Israel Thrives" - something which it does, despite all those attack dogs, and which I hope it will do for a loooooooooooooooooong time ;)

  3. Pope Francis's Easter Vigil Mass at the Vatican was by-the-book - Pope Benedict's liturgical book. The chanted Ordinary was "Lux et Origo,", the Propers and the Canon were in Latin, the Communion hymn was the Gregorian "Ave Verum Corpus." That more than made up for his Maundy Thursday gaffe of washing the feet of a muslim girl.

    1. Sounds absolutely gloooorious, but it will take me some time before I will be able to get over his Maundy Thursday act; just think how the Christians, persecuted in Islamic countries, must feel about it.

  4. I also wonder how the traditionally "possessive" muslim males will take this encroachment on one of their chattel by a Catholic man? Not to worry! Francis isn't a Catholic!

    which then begs the question: is he Sunni like Obama or Shi-ite...
    (I say this after he just has allowed a Muslim "cleric" to pray to allah "for victory over non-muslims" in the Vatican.)
