Hattip to Dave Griffey at Daffey Thoughts.  A message to our new President from the Pope:

 

The Honorable Donald Trump, President of the United States of America,

Upon your inauguration as the forty-fifth President of the United States of America, I offer you my cordial good wishes and the assurance of my prayers that Almighty God will grant you wisdom and strength in the exercise of your high office.

At a time when our human family is beset by grave humanitarian crises demanding farsighted and united political responses, I pray that your decisions will be guided by the rich spiritual and ethical values that have shaped the history of the American people and your nation’s commitment to the advancement of human dignity and freedom worldwide.

Under your leadership, may America’s stature continue to be measured above all by its concern for the poor, the outcast and those in need who, like Lazarus, stand before our door. With these sentiments, I ask the Lord to grant you and your family, and all the beloved American people, his blessings of peace, concord and every material and spiritual prosperity.

Franciscus PP.

  1. A cringed a little at President Trump’s “America will be wealthy again statement” today. Money’s not everything. Great speech though. And the Pope could definitely use a healthy dose of free enterprise.

  2. Finally a statement from Pope Francis that is not find particularly offensive. The thing Pope Francis doesn’t understand is that doing economics his way results in more poor people. Hopefully, Pope Francis can learn a thing or two from Trump. It begins with a good product. Pope Francis product has quality issues.

  3. John said that we can have everything; but, without Love, we are Nothing. I WANT to believe that the Pope’s letter came from the Heart. I WANT to believe that. Timothy R.

  4. The Pope had to write something and having been called “disgraceful” by Trump when Francis said a man who would build a wall is not Christian, Francis learned that he’ll get counterpunched if he uses vinegar again. And he will get counterpunched again but Trump does need someone else to warn him about the Lazarus and the rich man parable….someone whose motives are not a mix of the gospel with Leftism. Forbes put Trump at 3.7 billion last September. There is another American billionaire ( ex billionaire now) who has given away
    everything but several million.

  5. Excuse me — the above quote is from 1TM 6:10. I don’t know why I said Jesus. I had a “false memory” of looking that up in the last few months or so and I thought Jesus said something to that effect. I’ll look some more.

  6. HE doesn’t want the goofy looking green stuff to replace HIM in our affections. Wasn’t it Vince Lombardi who said, “Money isn’t everything. It’s the ONLY thing” ? TR.

  7. Mother Teresa lectured the Clintons on abortion and the right of the sovereign person to live. Pope Francis is not affected by the slaughter of the innocent children of God in the womb who are the standard of Justice for our nation and the world. Maybe Francis cannot remember when he was legally and morally innocent and was spiritually enabled to maintain his original innocence?

  8. I envy Children because I fervently wish to be “little” again. I pity Children because they will have to “grow up”and learn about all the misery. TR
