What The Hell Is THAT????

I refer to the excuse for a crozier that the pope is carrying in this picture.


And no, it is not photoshopped; it comes straight from the Vatican's site.  In the "photo" section, it's in the second row, third column.  Moreover, the video shows him plainly carrying it.  By the way, the video is one of the pope saying Mass before the 15th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops.  At around the 49:30 mark is the consecration.  Again we don't see the pope kneeling in adoration as instructed in the rubrics.  The cameramen are careful to pan out during those moments, but they cannot disguise things.  Because the pope has knelt while protestants "prayed over" him, we know it's not a question of handicap.

Edit: Thank you, Rorate Caeli.  This is the "youth synod", you know, the one whose "working document" will dignify the acronym "LGBT".  This is courtesy of Book-thief Baldi.

Between the refusal to kneel and the crozier that looks like a broken farming tool, we have to wonder about the level of reverence shown for Our Lord - if that reverence exists at all.  Is this a harbinger of the output that we should expect from this synod?


Will this "youth synod" feed into the World Youth Day for 2019?  Remember what that logo is?  Why am I beginning to smell a sinister rat?

  1. Indeed, "What the Hell is THAT?" It's not a crozier at all, it's a pagan symbol. When are people going to realize that this guy is a raging pagan? Just because he throws out Catholic thought once in a blue moon, doesn't mean he's Catholic. When that happens, he's GASLIGHTING. He's trying to throw a wrench into all his very obvious anti Catholic ways and keep the sheep confused. It's a common ploy of abusers, dictators, etc. in order to hold onto POWER. Sorry, but the man doesn't have a Catholic bone in his body. He's just power hungry.

    1. That attempt to justify that pagan/wiccan object at Holy Mass just doesn't cut it. Kandra has a way of twisting himself into a pretzel as he tries lamely and futilely to excuse these pontifical misdeeds.

    3. Readers, patheos is a hodge-podge of blogs, including wiccans such as the ones to whom Mar refers. Bear that in mind if you choose to go there.

    4. Exactly! That's why I posted. To show the inconsistentcy of their articles. An eclectic, syncretistic mish-mash.

  4. Sometimes people don't understand the implications of "modern art" but I would also take a breathe: as Uncle Freud once suggested, sometimes a cigar IS just a cigar ....

    1. Maybe we understand more than you think. We know what crossers look like, as well as pagan implements. That thing is the latter.

  5. Pagan, no. Satanist! bergoglio leads world Satanism out of the Vatica. See Barnhardt’s article on the ‘stang.’

  7. If someone dropped 25 million dollars on the ground in front of him he would kneel to get it.

  8. It's symbolic of the man and his pontificate: a dead branch without fruit that is cut off and headed for the flames.
