Why does the Pope kiss the ground?
It is not a prescribed ceremony for a pope to do so. John Paul II, who traveled constantly throughout his papacy when his health was good, began doing it as a personal expression: he would kiss the ground of the country in which he had come to visit upon his arrival there. This was to show respect and reverence to the nation and its peoples as well as express his gratitude to them for inviting or welcoming him into their land.

Well this happened to me once and you just say that kiss was the best kiss I ahd in all my life, just say nothing, or just look at him that mean it was a great kiss ever, or g…et his hand and look at him. lol if your really embarrassed, RUN!!!!
welll... it depends if you wanted to kiss him? 1.if you wanted to kiss him. who went in for the kiss first? if he did, then he obviously wanted to kiss you, so he must… like you. if you did, and he tried to edge a away. then i don't think he would want to kiss you, but if he went in for the kiss also, he must have wanted to kiss you back. and also both of you can go in for the kiss at the same time. 2.how did it feel. during the kiss, if you felt awkard, then this isn't the right boy. but if you felt butterflies while kissing him, and also while kissing you smiled, then mabey this is the right boy for you. >if you feel him smiling then he obviously feels the same way. 3.were did you/he put his hands. if he is touching your 'bum' while kissing you, this is what boys do if they actually want to kiss you. if he didnt want to kiss you his hands may be round your waist, or mabey not touching you at all. this is all the tips i can give you. soo after reading this, and you think he likes you, ask him out. kiss him again.
The most common is a simple peck on the lips. Basically, you leanyour head one way, and your boyfriend leans his the other way andyour lips touch for a short couple seconds. I…f you're ready to moveon from that, you can try kissing for longer periods of time, thaneventually try french kissing or "making out". In this type ofkissing, people often use tongue and get messy. You can open your mouth a bit or just keep it closed. One magazinesays that if boys suck on your lower lip it means that they reallylike you. So girls, hope for that, and guys, if you want your girlto know that you really like her, do that. If you want a kiss to besuper romantic, touch a bit. Girls, touch his shoulders from thefront, meaning that you bend your arms in front of you and placeyour hands on his shoulders and guys, hug their waist or put yourhands on her shoulders or arms. Girls will like that (well, atleast me). Boys put your hands around her waist or up a bit up from her waistit will show her you like her and your not messing around. If youra girl put your hands around his neck so your hand are kind oftouching just below his neck and in between his shoulders.
You just need to be yourself and just get to know him better.
Basically, whatever floats your boat.
Well you can get a lot of things here are some 1. Kissing helps you prevent cavities 2. When you kiss your lover it can help improve your mood
If you are a girl, you would just smile, and say that was nice, but if you are a boy, you would give her a hug and maybe another kiss, and say well are you ready to go in a po…lite way. Then she would probable say sure, unless she is jacked up, or not interested in you at all. Thanks :)
We really do not know why Jesus Christ chose Simon whom He renamed the Rock (Peter) to be the first leader of His Church on Earth. John 21:15-17 states: When they ha…d finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs." He then said to him a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep." He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time, "Do you love me?" and he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." (Jesus) said to him, "Feed my sheep. Matthew 16:17-19 states: Jesus said to him in reply, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." The Catholic Church believes the Lord made Simon alone, whom he named Peter, the "rock" of his Church. He gave him the keys of his Church and instituted him shepherd of the whole flock. The Pope is the senior pastor of 1.1 billion Catholic Christians, the direct successor of Simon Peter. The Pope's main roles include teaching, sanctifying, and governing. For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 880-882.
The pope is the Vicar of Christ. He occupies the seat of Peter, and is essentially Christ's chief apostle and leader of His Church here on Earth. The pope is also the Bishop o…f Rome. The pope's responsibility is to lead the church. As you can imagine, the responsibilities are incredible and diversse. Most popes will spend their time focusing on issues or topics that are of interest to the Church needs at that time. The pope essentially listens to the cultural pulse and speaks out in the name of Christ on issues. For example, Pope John Paul II spent much of his early years focusing on building up the resistance in Eastern Europe to Communism which eventually caused the collapse of the Berlin Wall.
Any institution requires a leader or visible hierarchy in order to function. This is natural to human nature and is thus present in human society and social groups. When Chr…ist set up His Church He thus naturally gave it a visible hierarchy. The pope functions not only as a leader and thus rallying point for an institution but also ensures the visible continuity between the Church and Its founder, thus maintaining the Church's authenticity of origin as well as maintaining its authority and jurisdiction in Christian matters. In addition to this, the pope has several offices proper to a leader. The pope is the top administrator of the Catholic Church and thus appoints and ratifies managerial positions (bishops, cardinals, manages rules and discipline, guards and safe checks beliefs and rulings, acts as the final court of appeal, calls councils, and leads the Catholic Faithful and guides the Church in the times It finds itself. In addition to this, Catholics believe the pope is further endowed with supernatural powers, specifically that of being able to definitively discern which beliefs are truly part of the deposit of the Catholic Faith if a question arises concerning them. The pope can thus, when acting in virtue of his papal office, and with the intent of addressing the universal Church on a point of doctrine concerning Faith and Morals, pronounce infallibly upon a doctrine of the Faith. This keeps the deposit of the Faith intact and preserves the Church from falling into heresy and helps avoid the formation of a dispute to the point it causes splinter groups within the Church that will eventually become heresies.
The current pope is Jorge Mario Bergoglio. He took the name Pope Francis I . Pope Francis was 76 years old when he was elected to the head of the church on March 13, 2013. He… was the archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina before stepping down because of his age. Pope Francis is the first non-European Pope of the modern era, and the first South American Pope ever. He is also the third straight non-Italian Pope. Pope Francis is considered to be a follower of the church's most conservative wing. Pope Francis takes over for Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI , who retired from his position due to health reasons on February 28, 2013, after about 8 years as Pope. The pope, in general, is the spiritual head of the Roman Catholic Church worldwide. Francis I is the latest Pope to hold that position, which the Roman Catholic Church can trace back through history, through the early Church until the first 'pope' (although that particular title wasn't used at that time), Peter the Apostle. The Pope's residence is in a tiny independent country (the smallest in the world) within the borders of Rome, Italy, called the Vatican City, which also houses the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church worldwide.
