As I’ve mentioned before, I live under a Rock (I really like the Syrian Orthodox interpretation of this). I was rather confused where the idea of the Pope’s unique new crossgaurd lightsaber crosier came from.
Luckily someone posted information on Facebook that clued me in.
This is not really something new. It took the Pope of Rome a while to follow the example of his Eastern brothers.
Like administering the Sacrament of Confirmation, Eastern priests also use lightsabers, and not just bishops.
Of course, there is the possibility that they can be used for the dark side.
However, I may have a very different theological view of Star Wars than some.
