Because the Pope, whoever he is, is for us Christians the successor of Peter. That’s why the Pope, whoever he is, is always the vice-Christ or as the great Italian saint Catherine of Siena used to say, he is the “dolce Cristo in terra”, the sweet Christ on earth. He is the common father of all the faithful. And that some children, from Australia, should be good to their common father,
the Pope, makes a lot of sense. It makes a lot of sense to me and that’s why I have been right with you when you showed your love for the Pope. And what did the Pope say to you? He said to you: “Come back! Come back!” You need to come back because it’s not enough to know the doctrine of Christ, you need to put it into practice.
