Pope Admits He’s the Devil

Edit: Many a truth is said in jest.

VILNIUS, Lithuania (AP) — The Latest on Pope Francis' visit to the Baltic countries (all times local):
Pope Francis has acknowledged that his reputation pales a bit compared to St. John Paul II — at least as far as Poles are concerned.
Greeting journalists Saturday en route to Lithuania, Francis was given a book about the former pope by Polish photographer Grzegorz Galazka. Receiving the large book with a beaming John Paul on the cover, Francis quipped: "(Pope John Paul II) was a saint, I am the devil."


  1. Even a broken clock gives the right time twice per day

  2. Lithuania. Occupied by the Nazis, then held in the communists' iron grip and now having a visit from Francis. Is there to be no end to that country's agony?

  3. Way to go Blotto!!!
    Couldn't have said it better myself!!

    Let's see, Francis lied about his own issues in Argentina re. pedophile priests, lied about McCarrick, lies when asked about Fr. Grassi the Argentine pervert, lied about the Chilean bishop who covered for pedophiles.

    But for once he told the truth about himself. He is a devil/demon....
    What do Catholics do about devils/demons.....? Exorcise them.
    We need to do that for Francis and company.

  4. I like the broken clock comment. It is good, and the comment about the Nazis is not bad either.

  5. Yes, that's me, the d-evil, what else?

  6. Nobody in his or her right mind has taken seriously Pope Francis' jestful remark.

  7. @Bill Olson: jestful maybe, stupid and inappropriate yes. JPII was run over by a Nazi truck and shot by a Muslim hired by the Bulgarian Secret Service. Compare this to your esteemed mentor's service as a bouncer at a nightclub whose greatest claim to conflict was in the grocery checkout line.
