A faithful Christian, has made with enthusiasm the hand of Pope Francis I - perhaps annoyed by this act and its reasons - he has responded with equal enthusiasm to break free from the vigorous grasp of Asian lady, settling some "paccheri" well measured. . As of January 1 2020, This gesture has surpassed in fame and the coveted traditional New Year's concert, much to the divulgarsi social network virally and clog posts WhatsApp many people - including us priests - and perhaps the majority of the lay faithful. . As it happens in these cases, the good-natured irony whole Italian has been produced cartoons to this who approached the gesture of the Pope to that of famous movie characters: since Bud Spencer, Terence Hill, Chuck Norris to romanissimo Mario Brega, and other … . widespread on cartoon social When the Italian satire It is expressed as usual, in the version pizza and mandolin, we must be honest and explain that in it there is no evil, only good-natured desire to resize everything with a laugh. Unlike the speech instead tied to very serious cases, like the one that led to the reputation the French magazine Charlie Hebdo with his irreverent and blasphemous anti-religious satire. . As it happens only in Italy, the gesture of the Holy Father has turned into yet another opportunity to pull the dresses pope to a line of thought that is cloaked in gooders and the politically correct, much due to the gesture several meanings, colorful and contrasting. So there have been many public defenders, also of a certain age and social caliber; the same as ever, at the time of Benedict XVI, John Paul II, John Paul I and Paul VI would have the audacity to speak and make Keyboard lions print and Web. But today, I wonder why, they felt invested with the sacred fire of the defense and papal repute and his gestures. Randomness? I do not think so. On the contrary, It is increasingly marked tendency to reduce the Pope to an authoritative representative of the world of the powerful, instead see and recognize in him the moral and spiritual authority that refers to the transcendent God. . However, since for some time we follow a new catechism of atheists and secular leaders who are only a man of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary a sciacquetta nothing part, now came the time to downsize and to pigeonhole well the august person of the Roman Pontiff. And so, as the laws of fame, satire and visibility prove merciless against Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Emmanuel Macron ... now it seems now the turn of Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

It is for this reason that, before the good-natured satire more genuine italianity, they felt compelled to exercise the defense motion. In the same way in which they behave coryphaei parties when touched their boss. And, as in the political tradition, It is trying to eliminate the opponent and the opponent of discrediting and damaging it with personal judgments on the morality and dignity, so those who have sketched a smile in front of funny cartoons about the Pope or have shared on social they are seen to point the finger and blame publicly. . I quote some examples from the web some office defenses: . "That is, let me know. One more man 80 years is pulled badly, He loses patience for a moment and slaps on the hand of one that was pulling him like a puppet to win Luna Park. Then he asks public apology (I repeat: Pope asks-the-excuse- The Pope) and you people treat it as if it were a monster? Could it be that this Pope whose only fault is to constantly remind, very effectively, what religion says that you claim to practice? Could it be that you hate because it puts you in front of the fact that most of you are no different from those that the Gospel calls "whited sepulchres"? The truth is that today, if Jesus Christ walked the Gospel among you, You would call "zekka feel-good", at best. And Pope Francis I will slam in your face every single day, why you hate him so much " (Facebook). . .. imagine if one could miss the unique and inimitable Neapolitan … There are no comments to make, at least on the part of Catholics well formed and therefore aware of who really is the Supreme Pontiff and are able to distinguish between what filial respect and reverence to his person and to his office and constructive criticism. Obviously there are plenty of references to hate, It has become like cholesterol, depending on which side or faction comes, it becomes good or bad. . The second case appeared on my wall Twitter, I was groomed for sharing a very nice post that compared the Pope to the character western of Trinity alias Terence Hill: . "From her “bio” I read that it is a parish priest … therefore, well rooted in the Roman Catholic Church; given that promotes satire of his Bergoglio “chief”, does not it seem a little contradictory that his conduct? Abandon the cassock and lead a priestly life in Christ " (da Twitter). . Even before this post There are very few words, for my part I answered out of politeness, because I never subtract to some criticism when it is done with education and with so. However, you can infer many things about the Christian formation of this social person and his way of seeing the Church, the papacy and the same figure of Priests. I'm sorry to disappoint this lion keyboard that is hiding behind a nickname, unlike myself that puts not only the name but also the face, knowing that they are not only faithful to the Roman Pontiff and in communion with him, but aware of the fact that I can be useful to the person of Peter's Successor to the extent that I act with a sense of Church, although with the affectionate irony. Wishing I can sum it all up with an example related to historical chronicles of two Saints: the great pedagogue, and much revered saint, Father Filippo Blacks, and his great "compar Brigadier", cappuccino mendicant friar St. Felix of Cantalice, which he was bound by affection and fraternal friendship, and each other often exchanged jokes and jokes. One day, between the laughter of all present, Father Philip showed how Fra Felice had a hard head, breaking his head on an empty wine flask, and then, both, They began to laugh arm around people. What to say of the lines between the two? One in particular, precisely directed to the Pope at the time reigning, worth remembering, because about who was sitting on the Chair of Peter, Father Philip said ironically: «EH, er Pope Sixtus, er Pope Sixtus, nun forgives nemmanco to Christ!». . … and alone and could miss the Romans following the Neapolitans cartoonists … I will not let the habit cappuccino, because I am aware that the Church is not Parliament, that his head is not a leader political and that precisely because they are sinful and contradictory life I need the Holy Spirit to convert, just as it happened to the Apostles at Pentecost. . For us priests, mention the name of the Pope and the Diocesan Bishop in the Canon of the Mass it means to confirm the communion of the Catholic world that it is not about personal human or sociological strategy, but the work of God through His Spirit. Citing the Eucharistic celebration "Our una cum Papa Francisco"I show my reverence to all those who have held the Petrine office. In addition to, a priest and consecrated reiterate my compliance to the Magisterium of the Church taught by the Supreme Pontiffs, by the apostle Peter to François I. . If someone thinks of wanting to attract into temptation to draw up a hit parade of the Popes trendy you're wrong, because I understand that certain distortions are not derived from bislaccherie of this or that Pope but by those who set themselves up as defenders and fellow snacks and perfectly embody the prophetic words of Psalm: . "If he had insulted me an enemy, I could bear; if he had risen against me an opponent, I could hide from him. But are you, my partner, My friend and confidant; He bound us a sweet friendship, to the house of God we walked in celebration » (cf. Will 54,13-15). . Santin cartoon Maybe it's time to listen less has come those who have always mouth the name of a Pope combined with concepts such as "revolutionary", "Rupture", the "turning point" … giving more attention to those in pain and suffering they try to save it by manipulators and flatterers, even at the risk of being discredited in public.
