La imagen simple y práctica del Papa Francis (The simple and practical image of Pope Francis)

Papas

Estamos todos asombrados por la imagen simple y práctica que Papa Francis ha estado proyectando a ser.

Déjeme, entonces, compartir con ustedes, en la foto de arriba, las seis diferencias entre el Papa Francis y su precursor, el Papa Benedict XVI.

1.Cambió el trono de oro por una silla de madera…algo más apropiado para el discípulo de un carpintero.
2. No quiso la bufanda roja bordada en oro para verse fresa.
3. Usa los mismos zapatos negros viejos, no pidió zapatillas rojas estilo Ratzinger.
4. Usa su misma cruz de metal, nada de rubíes y diamantes.
5. Su anillo papal es de plata, no de oro.
6. Usa por debajo los mismos pantalones negros de siempre para recordarse que es un sacerdote más.
Ya que tantos políticos se declaran “fans” del Vaticano, podrían aplicar algunas de estas enseñanzas.

(Translation)

We are all in awe at the simple and practical image that Pope Francis has been projecting himself to be.

Let me share with you then the six differences between Pope Francis and his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI.

  1. He changed the golden throne with a wooden chair… more appropriate for the disciple of a carpenter.
  2. He didn’t want the red scarf embroidered in gold to look impressive.
  1. He uses the same old black shoes, he did not ask for Ratzinger-style red shoes.
  2. He uses the same metal cross, none of rubies and diamonds.
  3. His papal ring is of silver, not of gold.
  4. He uses under the same black pants to remind him that he is one more priest.

Since so many politicians declare themselves ‘fans’ of the Vatican, they could apply some of  these lessons.
