Sometimes this Pope just leaves PopeWatch speechless:

 

The upcoming feast of Our Lady, Help of Christians, offered Pope Francis the opportunity to express his “special closeness and affection to all the Catholics in China, who, among daily labours and trials, continue to believe, to hope, and to love”.

Speaking directly to the faithful in China, the Holy Father said,  “May our Mamma of Heaven help you all to be witnesses of charity and of fraternity, always remaining united in the communion of the universal Church”. He then assured them of his own prayers and his blessing, before leading the faithful in praying the Hail Mary for Chinese Catholics.

Go here to read the rest.  Yep, Chinese Catholics, rest assured that the same Pope who sold you out to the tyrants ruling your nation has you ever in his prayers.  This reminds PopeWatch of this story told by Abraham Lincoln:

He reminds me of the man who murdered both his parents, and then when sentence was about to be pronounced pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan.

  1. As long as you work work work till you drop, as Mao intended, you’re an upstanding Chinese Catholic.

  2. It is a wonder that Pope (?) did not tell Catholics in China how blessed they are to have a Pope (?) who is in such full concord with their government.
