Pope Francis closed the call offering the family his blessing and asking for prayer, but not before making a small joke with Baruffi, who told him that, “We pray a lot for you, but you don’t need it, you are already a saint.”
Jesting, he laughed, and said, “Who knows, maybe we’ll see each other in hell?”, to which Baruffi said, “I think for you no, but us perhaps. We’re a little bit mean with everyone in this situation.”
Lest you do not believe me….it’s on video!
Can a Catholic Pope say such things?
As a side note….anyone else find that picture of Francis post-Conclave to be incredibly creepy? It’s from an international wire service so it wasn’t doctored in any way…the orange/fire background, the creepy smile, the monster Cardinal Daneels in the corner grimacing/trying to smile….everyone looking apprehensive. Creepy.
