A blog about the life & times of Jorge Bergoglio (aka Francis)
Don't you mean the new crop of HUMBLE & (mentally) STABLE look at me prostitutes?!
With everything going wrong in the world and they pose like this,unbelievable.
Sure looks like they could fast and sacrifice gluttony once in a while.
"& overweight" (just like St. Francis of Assisi (hahaha))
Parce nobis, Domine! Today is His Holiness Benedict's birthday, ad multos annos, 4ever in my heart and prayers. God bless+
Will Fr.Ratzinger sit in a synagogue on good Friday & applaud, again? Will he have an agnostic feminist speak at one of his ecumenical prayer gatherings, again? His holiness, are you freaking serious?????
Extracr from The NCR "Aging of the Conciliarist presbyterate"Confirming what the U.S. Catholic community has been observing for many years -- from individuals and religious orders to dioceses and their presbyterates -- a soon-to-be released study on priestly ministry in the United States underscores that “by far, the most striking trend” is “the aging of the priesthood.”The study authors state that it is “probably the one trend that is having the most immediate impact on priestly life in the United States” today.Effects of the aging clerical population include stressing diocesan and religious order’s resources to care for aging men; younger priests being made pastors much more quickly as their older confreres age and retire; and newer priests living -- often alone -- in increased isolation from fellow clerics.Pointing out that the average age of U.S. priests “has been increasing steadily over the last 40 years,” the study reports that the median age of priests in this country today is 59 compared to 45 in 1970, an increase of 31 percent.Meanwhile, the median age of comparably educated U.S. professionals such as doctors and attorneys has increased only 3 to 5 percent during the same time frame, notes the study, citing U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics figures.In 1970, fewer than 10 percent of priests were over the age of 65. Now it is more than 40 percent."http://ncronline.org/news/study-us-priests-aging-most-striking-trend
These priests are going to be ordained by invalid bishops in an invalid ordination rite.Whats the point why waste everyone's time,the seminarians included?
When I look at that picture, precisely two words spring to mind: Hieronymus Bosch.
No faith & no shame prancing around wearing priestly collars. They belong with the buffoon in Rome who must be proud they are 'making a mess.' If it weren't so gut wrenching I might be able to laugh at their stupidity.
Note to the doofus on the far right: when you are that morbidly obese it's probably a good idea for your entire body to face the camera as opposed to standing sideways. All jokes aside, what a pathetic display. Looks like 4 more guys to avoid when searching out sound Catholic guidance.
Let's see now --- Which one should I pick as my spiritual advisor? The slim, thoughtful one on the left who's scheming of heaven knows what, the two clowns in the center or the pregnant looking one on the right?
ps: should have written 'the slim thoughtful one with the sweater tied around his waist ---'
