Oh, puhleeeeeeze……

"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.

"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."
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!
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.
Quotation taken from Fr Zuhlsdorf's blog, for which, thanks.

No surprise there then. As I've said many times, there is nothing so illiberal as a liberal...

Well said! I think you should tell Bishop Kieran Conry to 'grow up' as well after his recent comments about the wonderfull news.

Oh dear. I guess the seemingly sulky silence here in the UK is pretty good in comparison. LOL.

Then you have had an amazingly cushy and charmed life.

Lavender tears - HA!
Is he not aware that the glorious Second Vatican Council did NOT FORBID the old rite?
Is he not aware that it was sniveling liberal dissidents in the Church who destroyed the liturgy, and NOT his beloved Council?
Does he even live on this planet?

Why lavender tears? Why queeny-over reaction? What is it about this man which makes you use 'gay' terminology for him? By the way, I totally agree with matermari, there is nothing so illiberal as a liberal. I am a liberal and I hate their illiberality

I feel so sorry for the good bishop.....


NOT!

'Fr Justin' - That's rather unfair of you to post a comment from 'anonymous' asking you to tell your local Ordinary to 'grow up'. To mention his name is unjust, especially as elsewhere in your blog you slate those who post nasty comments anonymously!
