Vatican Officials Ask Filipino Faithful to Use Images of Christ, Not Pope
Gesture Falls In Line With Pope’s Call to Keep Eyes on Christ
Use images of Christ, not the Pope, is the message Vatican officials have been trying to send faithful in the Philippines, who eagerly await Pope Francis, who arrives in their country tomorrow and departs Monday.
This request follows the various instances of the Jesuit Pope’s preferences for simplicity and calls on the faithful to keep their eyes on Christ and Mary, not him.
Yeah… I completely get that.
