The disgusting comments made to and about the pope at the link above are typical fare you might read in any Post-Dispatch story about the Catholic Church. Dear Holy Father, this is the treatment you get for proclaiming the Gospel. The world hates us, hates Christ, hates His Church, hates the Gospel.
Note what you are saying when the world applauds. It applauds when it sees the spirit of the world being proclaimed.
Please, Holy Father. We are like sheep without a shepherd out here.
