Listen to Francis? Nah, we’d rather shop.
Not all is going well in the reign of the humble hasidic Francis. It’s becoming obvious to everyone that the crowds of worshiping fans are shrinking, even as the Vatican’s press office and their allies in the medias attempt to cover this fact up. There’s a myriad of excuses given — terrorism, global warming, people staying home to read Amoris Laetitia, increased security, cold weather, etc... This however is a trend that can no longer be hidden or excused away. Francis’ Christmas Message and Urbi et Orbi Blessing is just the latest example of the many recently that markedly demonstrate this. Thanks to CatholicSat who pointed this out on twitter with the two photos below. We at Call Me Jorge... wonder when the decline will turn into the fall?
