Papal Mass Or ‘Showtime’: Netizens Slam Luneta Emcee

Catholic devotees gathered in prayer at the Luneta Park would never forget not only the inspiring words of Pope Francis, but also the emcee at the end of the event, who unfortunately got the attention of social media users.

Record-Breaking Crowd: 6 Million People Gathered So Far At Luneta For Pope Francis’ Mass

“Let us all join in singing our final song ‘Pananagutan.’ Wala po munang aalis!” said the emcee as Pope Francis made his way to the popemobile. “Kumanta po tayong lahat, mga kapatid. kumanta po tayo!”

The emcee led the crowd in cheering the Pope.

“Mabuhay si Papa Francisco! Mabuhay ang Santo Papa!” he chanted, “Gagawin po natin ang Pope Francis Wave!”

But it looks like some were not pleased with how the emcee made a “variety show” out of what they think should be a solemn event.

Other netizens on the other hand stressed out that the emcee was just trying to boost the crowd’s energy after a long, tiring, but inspiring day.

What do you think?
