Shouldn't the "dinner" be bread and water, otherwise a light repast??
Today in many places even making eye contact with another can be construed as sexual assault. It is reasonable to assume that an affectionate gesture by a holy founder might be misapprehended by a an uptight religious or even a pro gay prelate, don't you think?

He has dashed any chance of an episcopal promotion but will win the admiration of the angels and saints and the delight of the Lord himself.
This has to be the result of post Vat II inadequate priestly formation: these inadequates become inadequate bishops.
It also seems Abp Vigano has a poor grasp of History. Hildebrand was not Gregory the Great, but the great Gregory VII. Gregory I, the Great was pope from 590 to 604.
It is clear from the reporting of clerical appointments that the problem is not clericalism but nepotism within the clergy and hierarchy.
There is an underclass in UAE who work in virtual slavery, where unions are illegal, and among whom are Christians, thousands of Catholics from the subcontinent and the Philippines. These are on the periphery of society. Why is there no invocation of divine blessings from the one elected to serve them as Servus Servorum Dei.

Perhaps this man is the one who should have been elected pope. At least he speaks sense.
Even Muslims do not share Francis' understanding of the Divine Will. So his claim is not only a sin against the First Commandment; but also is absurd. Since he has signed the document, it is legally definitive. What a disgrace!
The Pope is the Head of Christ's Mystical Body, his Vicar, not the chairman of a NGO. He should read St John Damascene, not the Hew York Times or Zenit!
Sickening a disgrace to the episcopal office
Dear Lady, how pathetic "they" is not a phrase! She obviously didn't have a grammar teacher, well she is American isn't she? What she is arguing is that an individual is plural which is nonsense. "I won't be hearing from her" corrected to I won't be hearing from "them"...idiotic.
What about his comments that bishops (incl bishop of Rome) should not be seen as princes? he has as much security as a president.
Brilliant......Greg Sheridan's book: "God is Good for You" is a must read.
The greater rejection of the Gospel and the cause of serious harm to human dignity is the refusal to communicate with those who question aberrant teachings and inconsistencies of the current pontiff. Render to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's.
Why didn't he protest? "All we like sheep have gone astray?"
This man is unfortunate...appointed a bishop out of political correctness...only because he is a migrant. He habitually does not uphold Catholic teaching, but imposes his personal unorthodox opinions. Clearly he has little or no knowledge of Church history or the decrees of Ecumenical Councils.
speaking of whitened sepulchres, what of the decadent clergy including upper hierarchy? What's he doing about that?
Home-schooling is essential where the local parochial or private schools teach humanities and science ideologically, ie opposed to the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Besides, the nobility invariably home schooled, employing tutors. These days there are brilliant programmes available.
He would say this wouldn't he, being a puppet of the Communist government. Such a betrayal of the loyal Catholics abandoned by the present Pope!
Adjectives qualify; adverbs modify. This grammatical principle is overlooked too often and esp in US English usage. There is no such thing as a Latino Catholic, There is a Catholic Latino. Accordingly, there cannot be an LGBTQ Catholic, which means some variant of Catholicity. Once, literacy was a pre-requisite for ordination.
He tried yet failed. Confusion prevails.
"And He said to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? Could you not watch one hour with me? Stay awake and pray that you may not enter into temptation. For the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matt 26: 40-1, Mk 14: 37-8. Does the Pope not meditate these words? Are Catholics so pusillanimous that they cannot worship God for at least an our a week? This shepherd is failing the sheep.
He is correct in saying that Vat II was a disaster. Vat II claimed to be Pastoral rather than an Ecumenical Council. This was the disaster as we can see from the non pastoral results: breakdown in religious life; abandonment of the priesthood; abandonment of the sacraments; heretical teaching in schools, universities and seminaries; episcopal wolves in the sheepfold. What more could you want?? I …More

Clearly this woman is a protestant, even though she imagines she is a Catholic. This is no different from the 16th century so called Reformation. If she was an active worker in the parish she should have known better and should have been dismissed. Furthermore the writer of the report referred to the Blessed Eucharist as "the bread". This is heresy. This is not just about Feminism, this is …More

This language (grammar) is appalling: The penitent is singular therefore the verb must be singular. "the penitent died in HIS sleep. What a stupid politically correct Dominican. Shame! Not uplifting at all.
Quite unscholarly, sadly...there was no Israel then, it was Palestine....he sees himself as another Paul!! "You carry the wounds of a shameful past" pace Dr Mannix. Very peripheral indeed and so much slang.
