(Sniffles) Someday This Pontificate Is Gonna End
The Vatican has planned an elaborate light show celebrating Christmas. Images of the Baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, and a whole choir of angels will be projected even on the dome of St. Peter's Basilica, announced Archbishop Rino Fisichella, the head of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization.
"We are quite humbled to present this beautiful program of the nativity to the world," Archbishop Fisichella said. "It is a reminder that the Church, and the new evangelization, is about Christ, and earthly cares must fade into the background."
Had you going, didn't the Bear.
We might expect that, if the Luciferian program of the union and glorification of man on his planet were not in vogue in this papacy. Instead, what we get is humankind (not too many, now!) and global warming propaganda painted on Christianity's most important church.
Of course, it is only natural that Goofball-in-Command of Shameless Dopery, our old friend speaking-against-the-Pope-is-exactly-the-same-as-physically-attacking-him Archbishop Rino Fisichella is the showrunner for this -- and the Bear does mean this literally: abomination. (How's that New Evangelization going, boss?)

When the Bear scans the Vatican News on any given day, he feels guilty that they make it so darned easy to blog. Pope Francis has been the best thing for Catholic bloggers since Pope Alexander VI. (The Bear is sure they had some equivalent of blogging in those days.) The Bear feels like Col. Kilgore in "Apocalypse Now:" (Sniffles) "Someday this war's gonna end..."
Someday this papacy is going to end. (Sniffles.)
