Well, you know me, I had to think of it on a metaphysical level.
What do we know about the color RED? It is a color of passion. Whether it is love or anger the passion is there. Shoes represent the journey and brown is the color of grounding. It's pretty sad, when you think about it because the color BROWN is also the color of disappointment and confusion
Isn't it funny that he says he's retiring to a life of prayer and meditation? The things he can do as the POPE he is retiring to do??? What does this truly tell us?
Well, I can't speak for you but for me, it tells me that the "reasons" he became a POPE, the things he was passionate about, he no longer has passion for because it has been grounded/rooted in the matters of of confusions and disappointment.
The "BIBLE" says not to conform to the ways of this world that you may prove to this world what is good to GOD (Romans 12:2)
The very CHURCH that chose to love with such passion is grounded in the confusion of this world and is proving to not be the face of GOD...
