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
(in this case Popes) imagine THEY wouldn't like themselves all that much
(Lucifer is invoked on Ishtar Sunday 2012 at Vatican)

..... I suppose being a pope is nothing more nor less than being the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of any business enterprise.
..... Probably there are some members who wrongly believe that the pope has actual communications with Jesus. If he would really follow Jesus, and wanted all members to do it too, it would be BIG NEWS!
