Off Topic; This Pope Has to be an OK Guy.

Posted by DD.  Republished from MexicoNewsDaily

I am not Catholic, but this story made me think Pope Francis must be a good guy.  I think readers, especially those from Mexico, might enjoy this  little light heartedness among the all the stories about Mexico's problems.


Pope asks "if there will be tequila" 

Pope Francis has been promised “lots of tequila” when he pays an official visit to Mexico February 12-17.

While crossing St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican and greeting pilgrims New Year’s Day, the pope was greeted by a Mexican visitor who extended a welcome in advance of the papal visit.
Papa, we are waiting for you in Mexico,” the visitor shouted as the pope walked by.
Francis’ response was quick. “With or without tequila?” he asked with a smile.
“With lots of tequila,” assured the Mexican pilgrim, drawing laughs from the crowd.
The video has reportedly gone viral on social media.
The pope’s visit will include official and religious activities in Mexico City and the states of México, Chiapas, Michoacán and Chihuahua.
He will meet with President Enrique Peña Nieto and other officials, celebrate Mass in the Basilica of Guadalupe and another with indigenous communities in San Cristóbal de las Casas in Chiapas, among several other events.

    2. Thanks for the info.
      Ever thought that maybe the Christian crusades was just a form of enslaving people and robbing them of gold?
      You do know no one knows when Jesus was born? You do know CHRIST MASS is a pagan holiday to worship spirits? You do know that it was added to religion by the Catholic church because every one was doing it any way? That's not how religion is supposed to work.
      Thanks for the 411 on the kippa

    2. It's not always obvious much how the Pope is revered in Catholic countries; this particular chap (Francis) happens to come across as a friendly, caring and accessible leader. His opinions certainly carry weight in political circles and I believe he cares a great deal about the current climate of extreme violence in Mexico. I'm not particularly religious, I just notice how this guy seems to be really popular with Latin-American Catholics?

    1. And you think people treat each other better without religion? I am sure religion was invented because people get out of control without higher level authority. Cartels are a great example of that. Priests in Mexico are pretty outspoken, and have been murdered.

  13. Whats he going to do about the terror in Mexico. He won't say a word. Mean while our daughters are getting raped and killed. Our families are being kidnapped and killed. Hey Help the innocent people of Mexico Not this dumb President. A man of God "safe our people." Defend our Priest who stand up to the terror. How about being a Pope Hidlago.

    1. If this Pope is the anti Christ to you I can only imagine what you consider a "Christian"??? Your as dumb as a mule and twice as ugly!

    2. Catholic and Christian not the same thing. Do u ever use your brain. Catholics made Christianity but has different customs and viewpoints.

      Delete
    3. Stop watching Hannity 7:43 you have become an ignorant fool. Of course we are Christians. "different customs" since Catholics "made Christianity", all others who came after and altered "viewpoints' must not be Christians.
      Dumb! a Christian is a person who has received Christian baptism or is a believer in Jesus Christ and his teachings.

      I would say it is "u" that never uses his brain but that is most likely a futile exercise.

    4. Only catholics are christians, the others are communist cults --but most members just want to get rich and I just want to meet religious women...

    2. One begs to differ. BB certainly does not suck. Go away, if you don't like it. Nobody forces you to read BB, buster.

  18. Would all these psychopathic cartel thugs ever try to hurt the pope?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No. They pray to la Virgin de Guadalupe, de Fatima, el Niño Jesus, Malaverde,and so forth. Yes, it's odd, killers saying prayers, imo, it's more out of superstition than anything, else. The Cardinal getting assassinated during Amado Carrillo Fuentes'days is a multi faceted story steeped in narco politica. Some have it the Cardinal was in the wrong place at the wrong time; others said it was a direct hit on him. Frankie is the people's pope, he will be fine in Mexico.

  24. I read Mexico is paying huge amount of money for his visit, but Mexico is all about religion. My aunt used to get a help from some political dude but because he's paying to go see el papa they are not longer giving her or the other families that help.

  25. Tickets to see the Pope are gratis, you have until the 16th to sign up to attend the papal mass. Look for political prisoners to be released at Pope Francis' request...VIVA MIRELES FREE CEMEI
