Pope Francis: Mary Is Not My Mother
Pope Francis has been a breath of fresh air for many Catholics seeking greater liberty and a growing concern for conservative Christians who take issue with his comments about homosexuality and other cultural issues.
But the pontiff’s latest statement is sparking an uproar from believers around the world. Pope Francis sent a tweet Tuesday that absolutely violates the truth of Scripture:
“The Christian who does not feel that the Virgin Mary is his or her mother is an orphan,” Pope Francis tweeted. As of the time I wrote this column it had been retweeted about 4,000 times and many of the responses were in appropriately unkind. It’s not appropriate to attack the pope for his beliefs. It’s more appropriate to share the truth.
Website Comment: WHAT? Mother Mary is the Patron Saint of all Women and NO Pope will ever take that away. Where is the rulebook we are playing with this week?
Practical prayer is harder on the soles of your shoes than on the knees of your trousers.
