Pope Francis blasts bishop bureaucrats. Something tells me his recent visit with AAA left him in a bad mood.
Clearly the Pope is saying bishops are not above criticism. If kikocrats (the Dianas) et al say, "But it is the Pope alone who can criticize subordinates," then we say, "And we join him, then."
VATICAN CITY (RNS) — Pope Francis launched a blistering attack on the Vatican bureaucracy Monday, outlining a "catalog of illnesses" plaguing the church's central administration, including "spiritual Alzheimer's" and gossipy cliques.
By the way, as expected, I've received some heat for keeping up the fight through the Christmas season. Well, then I am in good company as this was the Pope's personal Christmas message to his bishops. Christ came into the world to engage and confound the Herods. I'd say we are right in there with the spirit of the season..the real spirit of the season. Merry Christmas.
And in the "spirit of the season" be sure to check back tomorrow for a nice big Christmas gift.
