Lovin' the Pope

“Leaders of the Church have often been Narcissus, flattered and sickeningly excited by their courtiers. The court is the leprosy of the papacy. Sometimes when I meet a cleric, I suddenly become anti-clerical. Clericalism shouldn’t have anything to do with Christianity.”  

These are the words of Pope Francis. Now, maybe if he'd just let nuns serve in these high "clerical" position he wouldn't have to be ashamed of his own church. I've never seen a nun wearing shoes that looked anything like those of Benedict XVII, who seemed to be flattered and sickeningly excited about his footwear.
