Vanity Fair & Elton John on Pope Francis?

The Pope con­tin­ues to make media heads spin:

Pope Fran­cis has been named Man of the Year by Van­ity Fair’s Ital­ian edi­tion in recog­ni­tion of his words and deeds dur­ing his first one hun­dred days as pon­tiff. The magazine’s front cover fea­tures the 76-​year-​old Pope Fran­cis wav­ing at a crowd, dressed sim­ply in plain white robes and a white skull cap.

Van­ity Fair? Van­ity Fair?!? Well it’s the Ital­ian edi­tion so maybe that’s not a big deal. I mean it’s not as if you have famously openly gay inter­na­tional celebri­ties cel­e­brat­ing him

Elton John warmly said, “Fran­cis is a mir­a­cle of humil­ity in an era of vanity,”

Elton John? ELTON JOHN?!? Well in fair­ness given this story he cer­tainly is right about the humil­ity bit

The pope has ordered the removal of a statue of him­self that was erected out­side of the cathe­dral of his home­town in Buenos Aires, Argentina…

He was described as “horrified”

Fran­cis appar­ently objected to the statue on account of his abhor­rence of the cult of per­son­al­ity, a risk that appears to be very real, given the beloved reli­gious leader was recently named “Man of the Year” by Van­ity Fair Italia.

Pride is of course, the first of the deadly sins but this pope under­stands who he works for

a few weeks ago in Saint Peter’s Square, when Fran­cis heard cheers of the crowd towards him, he asked the faith­ful to cheer Jesus.

And in two weeks in Rio mil­lions of young peo­ple will come from around the world to do so. I sus­pect that will have a lot more pull with the young than the whole “Keep Jesus out of my vagina” meme

Pope Fran­cis con­tin­ues to move the ball in the other side’s ter­ri­tory and the media keeps unknow­ingly block­ing for him.

God con­tin­ues to work in mys­te­ri­ous ways and every­thing con­tin­ues to go as the Holy Spirit has planned.

If you think it’s worth it, then just hit DaTip­Jar below.

The Pope continues to make media heads spin:

Pope Francis has been named Man of the Year by Vanity Fair’s Italian edition in recognition of his words and deeds during his first one hundred days as pontiff. The magazine’s front cover features the 76-year-old Pope Francis waving at a crowd, dressed simply in plain white robes and a white skull cap.

Vanity Fair? Vanity Fair?!? Well it’s the Italian edition so maybe that’s not a big deal. I mean it’s not as if you have famously openly gay international celebrities celebrating him

Elton John warmly said, “Francis is a miracle of humility in an era of vanity,”

Elton John? ELTON JOHN?!? Well in fairness given this story he certainly is right about the humility bit

The pope has ordered the removal of a statue of himself that was erected outside of the cathedral of his hometown in Buenos Aires, Argentina…

He was described as “horrified”

Francis apparently objected to the statue on account of his abhorrence of the cult of personality, a risk that appears to be very real, given the beloved religious leader was recently named “Man of the Year” by Vanity Fair Italia.

Pride is of course, the first of the deadly sins but this pope understands who he works for

a few weeks ago in Saint Peter’s Square, when Francis heard cheers of the crowd towards him, he asked the faithful to cheer Jesus.

And in two weeks in Rio millions of young people will come from around the world to do so.  I suspect that will have a lot more pull with the young than the whole “Keep Jesus out of my vagina” meme

Pope Francis continues to move the ball in the other side’s territory and the media keeps unknowingly blocking for him.

God continues to work in mysterious ways and everything continues to go as the Holy Spirit has planned.
