Of Santo Papa and Banca


Walking by the shore of Pundaquit days ago, I saw this banca while the Santo Papa was in Manila. So I thought about the pope and nothing else

I imagine that one day the Santo Papa might ride a banca to visit the fisher folks like how I often visualize Jesus Christ – mingling among the fishermen including Simon. Simon later on became Peter the Apostle, the first pope in history.  So perhaps the banca is better suited as popemobile, at least symbolically.
