No. He will not do it, because, unlike you (who have or exercise little brain power), he knows that he is not an old-fashioned temporal leader (wearing a crown), but a spiritual leader (wearing a miter). You folks are so childish that it’s pathetic. It’s folks like you who give my Church a bad reputation.
I wonder what is childish and pathetic, having a genuine sense of the beauty of things, an appreciation of how fitting it is that they should adorn that which is holy, and a zeal to see that which is holy most properly expressed by being adorned with that which is most beautiful, of the guy who takes the trouble to scan and make pejorative posts on blogs the fundamental premises of which he fundamentally rejects?
John, Benedict XVI will not wear the tiara nor the Sedia Gestatoria not for the reasons you mentioned, but because he sniffs them. He sees them as unworthy symbols of the papacy. Let’s remember that Benedict XVI’s background is staunchly dogmatic liberal. He is not a traditionalist, he is just a practical man, but within limits. And the tiara and the Sedia Gestatoria, are out of bounds in his ideology. I wonder if perhaps he wakes up one morning with the idea to hammer down all the statutes with triple tiaras.
From what “John” wrote, I cannot even sure whether he is a Catholic or even a Christian. His uncharitable and totally unacceptable personal attack sounds outright satanic. I can say this without any hesitation, it is people like him, the traitors to Catholic tradition, who have dragged our beloved Mother Church into a mess in the past 40 years!
