The Vocabulary of Pope Francis: Endorsed (Written) by Fifty Great Journalists and Writers
We couldn't make this up if we tried! Another installment straight out of absurdistan! A book has been released explaining fifty of the catchphrases Francis loves to use. Notice in the video below, the editor of the book, Fr. Antonio Carriero says,
“Pope Francis speaks with the style of a pastor and his language is so simple that it becomes accessible to everyone, young and old and in particular, the elderly.”
That statement is opposite what the narrator of the video said right before,
““The Vocabulary of Pope Francis”...is a comprehensive guide for those who wish to have a better understanding of how each of these words relates to the Holy Father.”
So which is it? Is Francis’ language so simple that it’s accessible to all or do we need to have a comprehensive guide to better understand these phrases?
A sample of a few of the phrases in the book:
“peripheries of existence”
“throw away culture”
“don't be observers of your life”
It leaves us, here at Call Me Jorge..., to wonder will the book contain and explain our favorite Francis’ insult?
“self-absorbed promethean neopelagianism”
