"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

The Pope speaks.

The Pope was finishing his sermon. He ended it with the Latin
phrase, “Tuti Homini” – Blessed be Mankind.

A women’s rights group approached the Pope the next day. They noticed that the pope blessed all Mankind, but not Womankind.

The next day, after his sermon, the Pope concluded by saying,
“Tuti Homini, et Tuti Femini” … Blessed be Mankind and Womankind.

The next day, a gay-rights group approached the Pope. They said that they noticed that he blessed mankind and womankind, and asked if he could also bless gay people.

The Pope said, “Sure”.

The next day, the Pope concluded his sermon with,
“Tuti Homini, et Tuti Femini, et Tuti Fruiti.”

  1. A good sense of humor is a wonderful gift. It lightens the load of life in a very wonderful way. Thanks for such, Terry.

    BTW...just watched this documentary on EWTN.

    Very moving and affirming that Papa Francesco truly is our Papa for these times.The Knights of Columbus are to be congratulated for the fine job they did in producing this wonderful piece.

  2. I wasn't expecting that ending. Brought a smile to my face because I know it wasn't published in a derisory manner.
