My problem: the pope, the pope and the pope some more

Some folks have been wondering and asking "Where are you?  Are you still going to blog?" 

After starting off my Lent by writing a post asking the pope to "shut up" I thought I needed a time-out.  Originally, I had intended only to take a break during Lent and return after Easter.  

My problem was...well... I just couldn't stand Pope Francis nor trust him.  Every day he was driving me nuts in what he did, didn't do, said and didn't say.  I could find nothing in him to like or even tolerate. My feelings for him had gotten so low I was angry, bitter and furious with the pope daily. And this greatly disturbed me. 

And the problem now is... I still feel the same. I don't want to feel like this, but the truth is I do. 

So to give my wonderful priest a break from hearing me confess that same thing week after week; and to keep me from continually hogging the confessional, I've decided I need a longer break and I need to keep away from anything related to our current pope.  That's not an easy thing to do for a Catholic blogger.  

I might focus future posts more on sharing the Catholic faith, prayers, saints- anything Catholic that lets me put out of my mind that Pope Francis is our current pope. 

I am avoiding what leads me to sin.  Sadly, its our pope. :( 

I keep telling myself that God has His reasons and it's not my place to question them- but I don't like it.  So...I am going to ignore my intolerance of this pope to the best of my abilities by avoiding the entire subject of Pope Francis.  There are plenty of other Catholics out there taking on this issue who already do a much better job than I.  May God give them strength in their endeavors.

I will pray for the Church and continue to love my Faith, defend my Faith and share my Faith, but I am going to do my best to avoid the entire subject of who God is allowing to be called "pope" at this moment.  

That's all I'm saying on that. 

If there are any other subjects someone would like to see me comment on, please drop me an email, tweet or comment here. 

Your prayers would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you. 

God bless you all. 

In Christ,

Julie @ Connecticut Catholic Corner
