Here it comes. FrancisVisit is ramping up and it’s going to be all politics. Our propagandist-pope is going to be the subject of non-stop mega-hype. If only I watched ABC news!
Pope Francis held a virtual audience with Americans in three U.S. cities on Monday, just weeks ahead of his first visit to the country later this month. In the first official meeting with the American public, the pope once again demonstrated his priority to pastor to often-marginalized communities by targeting issues relating to youth, homelessness and immigration.
During the audience, which will be part of an ABC News special airing on Friday, the pope said he is praying for the U.S. and asked for Americans’ prayers in turn.
The pope spoke from the Vatican to students at the Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago, individuals from homeless shelters in Los Angeles and immigrants at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church near the U.S.-Mexico border in McAllen, Texas.
Marginalized, youth, homeless, and illegal aliens – read liberal voters and excuses for corrupt Democrat policy. Hello, Pope Francis! What about Catholicism and Jesus?
One 17-year-old student started crying as she told the pope about being bullied for a skin condition she has had her whole life. She said she has found strength in music, which inspired Pope Francis to make a special request.
“I would like to hear you sing,” the pope said in English. “May I ask of you to sing a song for me? Be courageous!” The teenager then treated Francis to song in the Argentine pope’s native Spanish.
Oh my gosh! A crying bullied teenager with a skin disease and the Pope asks her to sing! I’m completely flattened. It’s like Heaven just landed in my television. If this is the new Pope Francis Catholicism then I’m as on board as Castro!
