Vicar General, “I Would Have Suspended A Priest Acting Like Pope Francis”

An unnamed vicar general has commented on Pope Francis’ marriage on an airplane,

“If he were a priest in my diocese I would ensure he was suspended, and at his age retired from a public liturgical or pastoral function.”

Talking to Father Ray Blake (January 19), the vicar general said that he expects that Francis will find followers, priests or deacons, who will marry couples who turn up at their front door, without paperwork, such as proof of freedom to marry, or even of baptism, and without much, if any preparation.

I don’t think the situation is different than in the papal aeroplane in some diocese in UK. It’s a well known fact that in Westminster Joseph and Mary s marriage would be annulled. When my wife and I did a marriage preparation weekend at Westminster Cathedral, we were the odd ones out. Every one else already had children and for some it was their third time round.
Iam with you Vicar General .There is a lot of popemania going on

That is what any TRUE Pope would have done. Borgia took such an oath and … More

Where was the marriage preparation requested in Amoris Laetitia?

It's worse. It#s a deception (it was preplanned but made to look spontaneous)

It's a trivialisation of marriage.
