Pope Francis refuses to let Catholic faithful kiss his papal ring
Pope Francis today made it clear that he doesn’t want the faithful to kiss his papal ring, as he repeatedly pulled his hand away from pilgrims who were lined up to greet him reverently during his one-day visit to the Holy House of Loreto.

The Bishop of Rome’s ring — the “Ring of the Fisherman” — is a sign of his husband-father relation to the Church as a whole and is smashed upon the death of a pope. It is also the symbol of the Pope’s investiture of his office. To kiss the “Ring of the Fisherman” therefore alludes to the dignity and office and is an expression of loyalty to him as the Successor of St. Peter.

When Pope Francis received the fisherman’s ring at his installation on March 19, 2013, the Solemnity of St. Joseph, husband of the Virgin Mary and patron of the universal Church, the ring was borne in procession from the tomb of St. Peter where it had been laid. ...

Now, it would seem to me hand wipes or disinfectant spray what solves the problem of the physically filthy ring, but it does nothing for the eternally fatal religion of Roman Catholicism-- (Come out of the Catholic Church)

@JAG, that would be a fantastic terrorist plot.

Imagine if a germaphobic Pope was elected. 🤔

"Take this ring, the seal of your fidelity. With faith and love protect the bride of God, his holy Church.” The formula dates back to the first millennium."

How tragic that this system of religion has beguiled billions and billions over time, and all over the claim that Peter was the first Pope, and Christ telling him, based upon his answer, upon this rock, I will build my church. The entire foundation of the Roman religious machine is their false claim of Peter being its first Pope, and the gross mis-interpretation of Peter's answer to Jesus, after being asked, "...but whom say ye that I am?"..."Thou art the Christ, the Son of The Living God." Seems to me (us), that it was Peter's faith; faith itself, which is the foundation of The one true church, and it ain't Rome's false version.

In addition to that false claim, along with their bogus claim of being able to trace an unbroken line of Popes back to Peter, the fabulous wealth, fancy gold and jewel encrusted hats and robes, along with the relics, antiquity, pomp, religiousity, and ornate churches, etc., only serve to fool the ignorant all the more.

So basically the Popes ring is the largest spreader of disease in the crowd...

If you have a couple hundred people kissing the same ring, all you need is one with the flu...🤒🤢🤮

Just like the Catholic Church. Spreading disgust, spiritual and physical...

"The first Error is this, The papists do hold, That the Pope is the Head of the Church: This is diametrically and point-blank opposite to the Scripture, Col. 2.9. Christ is there called, The Head of the Church. Now to make the Pope the Head of the Church is to make the Church monstrous by having two Heads. This is to make the Spouse of Christ an Harlot. I read, Rev. 13.1, of a Beast rising out of the sea. By the Beast there Interpreters understand the mystical Antichrist, i.e. the Pope. Now, if the Pope be the Beast there, and elsewhere spoken of; how ridiculous, yea how impious is it to make a Beast the Head of Christ’s Church. That is the first.

A second Error, which I shall but name, is this, That Papists hold, That the Pope is above Scripture, and that his Laws, Decrees, and Canons bind more than the Scriptures, than the Word of God. Well may he have that name written upon his Miter, that’s mentioned, Rev. 13.1, And upon his head was written the Names of blasphemy."

The Bishop of Rome, the vicar of Christ, the infallible one, the holy father and the keeper of the blessed Vaticanus and Senaiticus which are the two great rivers of modern bibles; the Pope the antichrist, the man of sin, and the son of perdition wherein neo evangelicals are so infatuated, if not in love.
