What the heck is this guy thinking?
But, you know, though he is the Holy Father, we know the Truth and don’t need it affirmed by men in skirts.
Jesus thought of the Church differently.
Jesus identifies Himself with His Church.
"Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?"
Which is why He also said,
"If he won't listen to the church, treat him as a pagan or tax collector."
