Today, the Pope’s garments contain designer crosses and pagan symbols. Jesus ridiculed Jewish leaders who wore robes with “phylacteries and tassels” to make themselves appear holy.
"Everything they do is done for men to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have men call them 'Rabbi.' "But you are not to be called 'Rabbi,' for you have only one Master and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. (Matthew 23:5-9)
Jesus described both the Pharisees (Rabbis) of yesterday, and Catholic Priests (Fathers) of today.
