The real secret - meekness

There are 1 comment on the story from Jan 26, 2014, titled The real secret - meekness. In it, reports that:

Pope Francis arrived at the papal summer home, Castel Gandolfo, in a humble Ford Focus which was a far cry from the luxury cars of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, who travelled around town in vehicles that included a custom-made Renault, a BMW X5,... Why does Jesus in Matthew 5:1-12 promote meekness? The opposite of meekness is self-importance.

The real secret to WHAT? I am frankly tired of seeing Pope Benedict XVI getting bashed by pointless comparisons, plus for priests there's no such thing as a "vow" of humility, so what about it in this context? Also watch the video - Benedict certainly paid his dues with dividends, on his knees washing all those smelly feet in his mid-eighties, when he was already way too OLD for that privilege. Different strokes for different popes...
