"I can’t fight back the tears. This is the saddest moment in my life as a man, priest and bishop," Luca Brandolini, a member of the liturgy commission of the Italian bishops’ conference, told Rome daily La Repubblica in an interview on Sunday.Well, I think this wins the queeny over-reaction award hands down. You can almost see the lavender tears at his pity party. Grow up, for heaven's sake! Get a grip on yourself!
"It’s a day of mourning, not just for me but for the many people who worked for the Second Vatican Council. A reform for which many people worked, with great sacrifice and only inspired by the desire to renew the Church, has now been cancelled."
Anyone would think that he had been forced, screaming and kicking, to vest in full traditional pontificals, burn the documents of Vatican II, and celebrate the Old Mass at gunpoint.
All that has happened is that he is now unable to bully and be very unkind to a few people who disagree with him.
