Pope decides to Build Back Better

We thought at first it was simply a tweet from whoever manages Pope Francis's Twitter account (believed to be a teenager on work experience, judging by the quality of the tweets), but no, it appeared on the Vatican's own site.

The theme of this year's celebration is “Building Back Better: Toward a Disability-inclusive, Accessible and Sustainable post-COVID-19 World”. I find the expression “building back better” quite striking. It makes me think of the Gospel parable of the house built on rock or sand (cf. Mt 7:24-27; Lk 6:46-49). So I take this special occasion to share some reflections based on that parable.

Unfortunately, to everyone else in the world "Build Back Better" means something else. It is associated with the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, and even Joe Biden's election compaign.

Klaus Schwab

Ernst Stavro Blofeld Klaus Schwab - tipped to become a cardinal any time soon.

Yes, all the most powerful creatures in the world - Bill Gates, George Soros, Klaus Schwab, even Joe Biden's dog - all agree that we must Build Back Better.

Of course, this is not the first time that Pope Francis has appropriated a political slogan for his own purposes. Previous Vatican "themes" have been "Yes, we can!" and "Feel the Berg!" not to mention "Francis has a plan for that!" and "Best Pope Money Can't Buy" (this last one is no longer used, following negotiations with China).

Joe Biden legless

Top Catholic Joe Biden refutes claims that he hasn't got a leg to stand on.

So what is in store for the Catholic Church when it participates in the Great Reset? God's Own Great Reset is believed to involve a return to the book of Genesis - drop each person into a garden containing an apple tree and a malicious snake. Those who don't eat the apple go to Heaven, those who do go to Hell. But Pope Francis has other plans.

As Job 1:21 points out, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away. Well, the Great Reset does not involve stealing everyone's clothes - although several prominent cardinals thought that this would be an interesting feature - but it doesn involve taking away everyone's money.

In the future society based on Brave New World / 1984 / Fahrenheit 451 / choose your own dystopia, but perhaps Austen Ivereigh's new book about the Pope will count, everyone will remain at home all day. No more public worship, nothing but staring at a telescreen all day long, no bars, no shopping, just daily deliveries of low-fat vegan climate-friendly chemically synthesised food. It's better! It's Better! It's BETTER!


How to Build Back Better.


  1. I thought "Build Back Better " referred to a slogan going around te Vatican that Pope Francis was stepping down and they were re instating Pope Benedict 16th ?

  2. In an exclusive off the record interview with Eugenius Scalfari, Papa Francisco reveals plans to build a religious monument to The Great Reset.

    Scalfari: Tell me more about this.

    Francisco: The obelisk here in St. Peter’s Square hasn’t had a real update since Emperor Caligula had it shipped from Egypt. He & Nero hosted Circus entertainment on this site. Did you hear I’ve been holding hosting circuses here, too? And some people say I don’t uphold tradition!

    Scalfari: Isn’t this where St. Peter was martyred?

    Francisco: It’s ok. I outlawed capital punishment. Nothing like that can happen to me.

    Scalfari: What will be the theme of your monument?

    Francisco: “Build Babel Back Better.”

    Scalfari: Babel, as in Tower of…?

    Francisco: It will be Biblical! It will reach to the heavens!

    Scalfari: Didn’t the original Tower of Babel run into logistical & linguistic problems?

    Francisco: Anything I babel can now be auto-translated.

    Scalfari: Won’t that put Austen Ivy out of a job?

    Francisco: My employees don’t seem to last long.

    Scalfari: So what is the religious meaning of the new Tower of Babel? Is this part of your Abrahamic House of Cards?

    Francisco: Our Sustainable Goal is to establish a New World Order of Religion for the Great Reset. We will have a mosque, a synagogue, & a church chosen from Eccles’ World Cup of Ugly Churches. I found that contest highly inspiring!

    Scalfari: And which church is taking the lead?

    Francisco: As this is the realization of my Document for Human Fraternity, I consider myself first among equals. Don’t tell Iman, but my Tower of Babel will be taller than the world’s current tallest tower in Dubai. Down with Capitalism! The sky is the limit!

  3. "Unfortunately, to everyone else in the world "Build Back Better" means something else. It is associated with the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, and even Joe Biden's election compaign."

    It's quite obviously Masonic.
