When you attend a Mass said by a Cardinal, Arch-Bishop, or a Pope, you will find a lot of the Mass is sung. The Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI was known for being musically proficient in his Masses. After the election of the new Pope Francis, members of the Catholic community assumed this would continue. Little did they know Mass was going to be a little different. When the Pope recited his first Mass with the College of Cardinals in the Sistine Chapel on March 14, they were surprised to see that Pope Francis did not chant or sing during the Mass. Parts of the liturgy usually sung, for example before the Eucharistic prayer, were spoke like any other part of Mass. Some people thought maybe it was just this once, but too much dismay, on April 1 during the “Regina Coeli” Pope Francis spoke the Marian prayer. Vatican spokesman, also a Jesuit priest, Father Federico Lombardi stated the Pope does not necessarily follow the “nec rubricat, nec cantat” logic all Jesuit priest do. Meaning the Pope is not very strong on liturgical song and experts. The Pope singing capabilities are also impaired by a medical procedure performed in his twenties. The uppers half of his right lung was removed after a cysts cause for him to get a lung infection. Father Lomardi also stated that it could do with the huskiness and hoarseness in Pope Francis voice. Along with the Pope’s lack of singing, the public has noticed, even though he is fluent in many languages, he does not speak anything but Italian to the public. The pope’s book was released in 2010 “El Jesuita” (The Jesuit) that he was perfectly fluent in Spanish and Italian and his French was really well, and his German was understandable. The language that he struggled with the most was English do to all of the pronunciations because he was “very tone-deaf.” On Easter Sunday the Pope did not greet the people in St. Peters Square in many languages like his predecessors and he did not read or talk to the people in any language except for Italian. Some may think he is showing favoritism, but Father Lombardi stated “It’s pretty clear that he wishes to not discriminate and show favoritism by choosing to speak some languages and not others, even his native Spanish.” I agree with Father Lombardi, the Pope is sticking to what he is good at, and I believe that he means no disrespect to languages and cultures around the world.
