I’m British and I couldn’t be happyer [sic] that this was sent to the pope. He has the responsibility and opportunity to stand up to pedaphellia [sic] in the catholic [sic] church [sic],instead he blames it on homosexualaty[sic]. He could help end the aids [sic] crisis in africa [sic] by condoning the uses of condoms, instead he says they dont [sic]work. This is the workings of a [sic] old, twisted and evil mind. If there is a hell I’m sure thats [sic] were[sic] he is going!
On the other end of the spectrum is the homily delivered by Bishop Slattery at the Pontifical High Mass on Saturday at Basilica of the National Shrine. Fr. Z has the text and audio. I’m not going to selectively quote from it – just go over to Fr. Z and read or listen to the whole thing because it is simply brilliant.
Unfortunately, I missed all but the final 45 minutes of the Mass because I had to attend, of all things, a Knights of Columbus convention across the street at the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center. That is either the best or worse excuse for missing such a monumental event, but Fr. Z has all sorts of goodies from the weekend. Hopefully EWTN will rebroadcast it a few more times (other than at midnight).
