I understand his irritation. Yes, the Pope is also human.
My parents considered the Pope’s christmas speech to be excellent. I agreed with them. He pointed at all human tragedies in the world and the world was present at that square in Rome. I saw black African people, Asians, white people, Southern Americans and others at the square. Even a Sikh guy from India.
Next to that our King made an excellent christmas speech for the Dutch people too.
