Further to my apples and oranges post, there’s comparing popes and there’s comparing popes.
There’s no shortage of social media memes doing the rounds right now, which compare popes through a hermeneutic of continuity. This sort of comparison, I think, is faithful to the Catholic view that each pope is successor to St Peter — as opposed to each pope being their predecessor’s replacement.
And then there are memes which don’t really provide any lesson, but which are funny enough that people repost them again and again.
