With so many misquotes being uploaded on this premier Catholic website, it is well to remember - a text out of context becomes a pretext. Let me point to one recent misquote uploaded by forum member “MattSixteen24” - “… if the faith is endangered a subject ought to rebuke his prelate even publicly.” The abridged words are lifted from the Summa Theologiae (Q33, Fraternal Correction) where traditionalists conveniently omit the preceding cautionary words “To withstand anyone in public exceeds the mode of fraternal correction, and so Paul would not have withstood Peter then, unless he were in some way his equal as regards the defense of the faith.” Cherry picking is also a favourite method used by climate contrarians; choosing to omit words at the beginning, middle, and end of paragraphs. Remember, the source of half-truths is the devil; a half-truth is a whole lie.

A believable anecdote relates that Napoleon was boasting about his power to destroy the Catholic Church when, in response, the Pope’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Consalvi, asked him: “If, in 1,800 years, we, the clergy, have not managed to destroy the Church, do you really believe that you will be able to do it?” (The London Oratory, September 2019 Letter from the Provost, Father Julian Lange).

I’m very surprised no-one has commented on the uploads of forum member: “今生跟隨主耶穌 / Follow the Lord Jesus in this Life”. The Church of Almighty God – generally known as “Eastern Lightning” – states that when the Incarnate Almighty God returns, s/he will be a Chinese woman.

I note that one of the theories of Dr Mark Imisides, an industrial chemist, is being put forward on this website. The sub-clause “meaning by air alone” gives the game away. It is true that a lot of energy would be needed to minimally raise the temperature of water through the medium of air. However, the temperatures of seas and oceans are increased by solar irradiation rather than by surface air. Whether you believe Dr Celsius or Dr Fahrenheit, global warming is a scientific reality.

When attending a papal audience it is recommended that you arrive three hours before the papal audience commences at 10h30. The linked photograph was taken early in the morning. Note the long shadows, particularly the shadow from the ancient Egyptian obelisk. At the close of today’s papal audience, the shadows were relatively short. As for the numbers of visitors/pilgrims in the Piazza San Pietro; the density of the crowd remained compact, right up to the base of the obelisk.
