Pope Francis plays with his solideo

Francis jokes with the papal zucchetto

According to the Catholic tradition and protocol, the white zucchetto (skull cap) is a symbol of the papal dignity. Since there is no earthly authority above him, a Pope is meant to take off his zucchetto only before God. From this solemn custom derives its name in Latin and other languages – solideo: soli = only; Deo = before God.

Notwithstanding this highly expressive piece of the papal garb, we see Pope Francis, above, taking off his zucchetto just to joke around with a girl and make people laugh. Doing so, he tries to appear like an old grandfather entertaining his granddaughter, sending the message that the papal symbols are worthless.

It is another step of the Bergoglio Revolution to de-sacralize the symbols of the Papacy in order to abolish them. This took place on May 9, 2013, during one of Francis’ democratic / demagogic tours around St. Peter’s Square.

Below, we see Pope Pius XII blessing the faithful, wearing the papal mozetta[short cape] and zucchetto, as a Pope should do.

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

    I am not sure what The pope intended to do. Is this a decultirisation as opposed to inculturation?
