Letter writer disrespected Pope

-A A +A

In response to the vitriolic and verbose letter of Kenneth Wayne published in the April 5 issue of the Gazette, apparently he has many axes to grind.
In his attempt to besmirch the Pope, he wrote “the Pope’s title is VICARIUS FILLI DEI, which blasphemously means 'In place of the Son of God.'"
The proper translation from Latin to English in Roman Catholic usage is “Representing the Son of God.”
Mr. Wayne’s use of “in place of” gives an entirely different connotation.
As a Catholic, I am offended by this attempt to disparage our Pope.
