Shunning security, Pope Francis made an unexpected visit to Santa Maria Maggiore church to pray for Our Lady's guidance.

"Now I want you to have confidence in me and believe my word.  It is not our perfection which is to dazzle God, Who is surrounded by myriads of angels.  No, it is our misery, our wretchedness avowed which draws down His Mercy. All God's dealings with us are a consequence of His Mercy (Mercy is God's goodness touched by the sight of misery).  And that is why the great Saint Paul says, let others go to God leaning on the perfection of their life (as the Pharisee), "for me, I take glory in my infirmities that my strength may be Christ's virtue." If you could only once understand that you are never dearer to God, never glorify Him more than when in the full realization of your misery and unworthiness, you gaze at His infinite goodness and cast yourself on his bosom, believing in faith that His Mercy is infinitely greater than your misery . . . Now the triumph of his grace is when it raises up the miserable and impure . . . ." -- Bl. Columba Marmion

I like this man's humility. I'm hoping that that humility will mean reverence for tradtion. Smile

Sometimes humility requires you to do things that make you uncomfortable because they don't seem humble and you're trying to be humble.  But you need to do them because other people need them.  A humble man might shun the pomp and circumstance that comes with the office of pope, but people need that.  It helps us remember what the office is, and reassures us that the man who hold the office is treating it with the seriousness it requires.  And I certainly hope Pope Francis won't avoid taking proper security precautions out of a sense of humility.  He mentioned going to Santa Maria Maggiore yesterday, so people knew he was going there, and if he showed up without security and somebody wanted to cause trouble, it could have been a real problem.

I really do not think "sneaked out" applies.

He publicly announced his visit.
He had security.
The Church was obviously cleared of people. The people there were all staff and they were kept away from HH, until HH went to them.

...and that hymn is emblematic of the Franciscans. Like I said before my heart is over ruling my head for now.

A Jesuit name after the father of the Franciscans praying to a Dominican.  Got it.
