The quote is taken from his speech in Africa from episode 8:
How can peace ever be disconcerting? Is it because when there is peace that you know that it won't last forever? What are your thoughts?
I can't find anything about the next half of the series, does anybody know any details about the second half of the show. Like maybe a release date, leaked info, or really anything related to the next season? Bless you all🙏
I liked many of the pope's lines but this was kinda my favorite. I think this was the moment that our young pope who was full of controversy and mystery all through the show, finally confessed some truth about himself:
"Esther, I love God because it is so painful to love human beings. I love a God that never leaves or that always leaves me. God, the absence of God... Always reassuring and definitive. I am a priest, I have renounced my fellow man, my fellow women, because I don't want to suffer, because I'm incapable of withstanding the heartbreak of love, because I'm unhappy, like all priests. It would be wonderful to love you the way you want to be loved, but it's not possible. Because I am not the man. I am a coward. I am a coward. Like all priests."
What are your thoughts on this?
I think it's in episode 5 or 6. There were some kids outside the vatican and they were shooting off some sort of glow in the dark things that would then float back down.
I've been an ambivalent atheist/agnostic all my life but for some reason this show got me interested in catholicism. I did some research, and I'm genuinely considering converting after I bought a bible and really got into it? Am I going nuts? Has this happened to anyone else?
That this show got 0 Emmy nominations (edit: except for cinematography). I know I'm late, but this is such bullshit. The young pope deserves so much more. Everything about it is well thought, of the highest quality and downright amazing. I cannot believe Jude Law didn't get a nomination for best actor.
I guess this just shows how useless and irrelevant awards like these are.
I know there has already been a post about this, but I thought maybe we could get a discussion going? What's your opinion on award ceremonies, what other shows do you think got screwed this year or in previous years regarding the Emmys, etc.
I binged it about 3 months ago and haven't really thought about it much. That is, until today, when I found the Flume song that was playing during the love letter scene in my bookmarks, which led me to rewatching it and getting emotional because this show is so GREAT.
I'm just so disappointed that Jude Law won't be coming back for a second season :(
