More tea, vicar?
Francis has similarly lost some of his other titles:
* Boss-man of the Catholic Church; * Mr Infallible; * Grandmaster of the art of Papa-Slappa; * The Big Cheese; * Holiest Man in the World; * Bouncer Bergoglio (from his days in Argentina); * The Fat Controller; * Mr Sunshine; * Big Frank; * Mother Nature's Favourite Son; * Humblest Man in the Vatican 2013-2020; * Santo Subito.It is said that Francis didn't like to be called "Vicar of Christ", as it sounded too much like "Vicar of Christchurch", which would make him an Anglican clergyman from New Zealand (or possibly Dorset), subsisting largely on cups of tea from grateful parishioners. However, it has always been a definite solecism to ask the Pope, "More tea, vicar?"

Just as it is bad manners to refer to someone by a pronoun xe doesn't want (Xe will be very offended), it is wrong to mis-title the Holy Father, Pope Francis, Deputy God (are we still allowed to use these titles?) So no more tactless references to "Christ" - they confuse him.
