Is the pope signaling his embarrassment over the trappings of the "imperial papacy"? The pomp we see is a carryover from the Medieval & Renaissance popes.

Couldn't Imagine People who worship Lucifer

..... I suppose being a pope is nothing more nor less than being the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of any business enterprise.
