An Expert on the Nobel Peace Prize in Norway said this on television ''A Pope who considers violence as a valid response to insults, and indirectly gives the victims of the Charlie Hebdo-terrorism parts of the blame for the killing, deserve no price.'' I couldn't agree more, and we must remember that he has made some very controversial / confusing comments since his election, and I've also noticed that he has been much more criticized lately.

I'd like to know what comments this expert is referring to and the context.

Of course he's more criticized...people who thought he was going to be some sort of progressive liberal pope in matters of faith and morality have finally started to realize what he believes is anything but and as predicted (right here on this board) months ago...they will turn on him. We can't possibly be expected to tolerate or respect someone with differing views.....

I can at least say that I respect him as a person, but not everything he says.

I think that's ok RN...that's what we are supposed to do. I admire someone who may disagree with someone's views but still treats/views the other person with respect. We need more of that.

I don't think winning the Nobel Peace Prize is high on the list of things Pope Francis wants to accomplish nor will he lose a night's sleep if someone else is presented with the grand prize. From what I know of the man and his deep sense of humility, I'd not be surprised at all if he turned it down.

He does have a remarkable talent of relating to the people he comes into contact with though.

You are so very correct. No two people think exactly alike all the time [even spouses] but we should respect the other's rights to express them. I have a lot of problems with the people that degrade another's views as "stupid, foolish, boring or having no intellectual interests or tastes" which violates them personally and not their opinions. They are usually the same people that find fault with a person's physical appearance [which is God given] and makes fun or snide remarks of them. I always assume that these nasty people had parents that did a very poor job in raising them as they have very little proper social behaviors and must pull someone else down to make themselves fell superior.

The Pope Emeritus continues to receive people, and many of them take photos of him which they post on their facebook accounts etc.

Benedict with the director of 'Aciprensa' Alejandro Bermudez (8 October 2015)

Benedict was driven to the courtyard of the Collegio Teutonico to hear a band from Nattenhausen in Schwabia. He arrived after the Mass in his VW limousine which is used to drive him around the Vatican (27 September 2015)

Benedict XVI with singer Bernhard Müller, Don Franz Meier and the church musician Franz Badura. They report that Benedict’s heath is good although his legs are weak and he needs support. But what surprised them was his mental alertness said parish priest Franz Meiler (6 September 2015)

https://scontent-ams2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...14&oe=5686316A

Benedict celebrated Mass for his student circle at the Collegio Teutonico in the Vatican. Following the Mass the new "Aula Benedict - Joseph Ratzinger" auditorium was inaugurated by Benedict (30 august 2015)

HH Pope Francis stated yesterday that Christmas this year is utterly meaningless."We all decorate trees and go about but at the same time the world is at war.A war here a war there,we are totally off the path to peace.God cries,Jesus cries."

It's true,sadly.
