The popularity of ‘pope’ Francis has reached unprecedented heights. Never before has a pope been so popular in the secular world.
In 2013, he was chosen many times as “The man of the year”. In June 2013 in the magazine ‘Vanity Fair’, in December in ‘Time’ and ‘The Advocate’… to enumerate a few.
The fashion magazine ‘Esquire’ chose ‘pope’ Francis as the best dressed man of 2013.
In the beginning of March 2014 ‘pope’ Francis got his own magazine ‘Il Mio Papa’.
He has more than 10 million followers on Twitter.
They sell copies of his pectoral cross, rosaries, statues, T-Shirts, and even masks. In December, film producer Pietro Valsecchi announced that he would make a movie about ‘pope’ Francis.
In this German book for children they compare him with Saint Francis from Assisi. They say that both love the poor and the animals, they are both humble because ‘pope’ Francis wears his own shoes, pectoral cross etc…. So ‘pope’ Francis must be a saint!
All of this has been foretold by Our Lord on 21 January 2012:
“So fooled will My children be that they will think he is an exceptional and pure soul.
He will be treated like a living saint. Not one word out of his mouth will be questioned.
Anyone who opposes him will be criticised and considered heretics.”
