"ADVENT EMBER SATURDAY" Traditional Latin Mass in the Archdiocese of Toronto

Thursday, 11 August 2016

You too can meet the celebrity Pope, only $25,000.00! Oh can't afford that? How about a gala for $7,500.00!



From an article in the San Francisco Chronicle we find an interesting opportunity through an organisation called Ifonly.com: a chance to buy time with the man in the Chair of Peter, the very Vicar of Christ on Earth.


For a contribution of $25,000 this is what you have a very special event to attend.



Held in Vatican City, the Killerspin World UnPlugNPlay Festival welcomes Pope Francis for a spectacular few days of tournament and technology talks — and you’re invited. IfOnly has partnered with Killerspin to offer a once-in-a-lifetime meeting with Pope Francis. This extraordinary event is the result of the Pope’s interest in “unplugging” from technology in order to better connect with family, friends, and colleagues. A meeting with Pope Francis will undoubtedly be the defining point of this trip and an unforgettable memory. Several other delightful features will cap off this remarkable package. In addition to meeting the world leader and humanitarian, this package includes several gatherings, including the Connect21 Ping Pong Diplomacy Cocktail Reception and gala dinner. The Pope has been invited to open the panel with the topic of the night on the impact of technology and human connections.


Can't afford the $25,000.00? No problem, for only $7,500.00:

IfOnly and Killerspin invite you and a guest to Vatican City, where some of the world’s greatest minds will join Pope Francis for a few days of enlightening conversation and charitable dinners. Kick off your incredible experience with a tour of one of Western Civilization’s crowning artistic achievements: the Sistine Chapel. Your package also comes with two seats at the Vice Chairman’s table for the Connect21 Ping Pong Diplomacy Cocktail Reception and Gala Dinner, where the Pope has been invited to open a discussion panel on the impact of technology on humanity. You will also receive a Killerspin Revolution SVR Bianco table tennis pack with a full set of World UnPlugNPlay Day racquets. In keeping with Pope Francis’ lifelong dedication to public welfare, this experience will benefit Best Buddies, a nonprofit dedicated to providing opportunities to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Of course, it is all good, the money is for a charity called BestBuddies

They sell the Sistine Chapel to Porche for a corporate function. Then, they desecrate it with a rock music concert.

Now, the man in the Seat of Peter, the Pope, the Vicar of Our Lord Jesus Christ allows access to himself to the very rich.

It's unbelievable how far this man is prepared to go down the road of perdition. He couldn't possibly be Catholic, and to see the entire Hierarchy just standing by watching him bringing shame on the One Holy Catholic & Apostolic Church of Christ on earth and saying they cannot do anything to stop him is just deplorable. Many people have said he was heretical in Argentina & he certainly preaches against the Ten Commandments. Imposes Amoris Laetitia as a Binding Document of a pastoral synod which contradicts the ordinary Magisterium of the CC though this is forbidden. He now has issued a sex education booklet which is reported to be very explicit & does not mention the rights of parents or even sin. Is preparing to go and fraternise with the Lutherans, the cause of a great schism & countless lost souls. He needs exorcising at the very least, but who will have the guts to ensure this is done?

What is really disturbing is that there are people with that much money to waste on a frivolous meeting like that. They should PAY people to meet him, that is how offensive he has become.

Bergoglio has the obsession of all socialists: money. He believes money is the solution to every problem. Is that a heresy, I wonder?

CC now stands for Corporate Company as opposed to Catholic Church.

I thought this was a joke! Please tell me, someone, that it is a joke - and that I am dreaming!

I imagine Jesus wonders if Pope Francis got the memo:

"Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give." Matthew 10:9

It's got to be satire. I can't imagine this being 'real'. Don't get me wrong, this Pope is surely BIZARRE in every way, but this is really ludicrous.

Well, at least we can be certain this is not simony.

Ferociter Romanus said...

This is not satire. The San Francisco Chronicle is a major news outlet. If only.com is a real company that sells once in a lifetime experiences to the 1% of the 1%. Have a look at their website - call their sales number //1-415-754-8167

Vox, I will be happy to pay the $25k if the pope will agree to play in the ping pong tournament.

Next we'll hear of various Vatican artifacts being auctioned off. Or maybe there will be raffle tickets sold for a ride with him in the pope-mobile. I should shut up before they take these "suggestions? seriously.

Being a celebrity and surrounded by the all fabulous people,the pope may forget the smell of the sheep.
