This has to be without a doubt, the biggest mistake Pope Francis has made.
I knew I was out of touch with the clerical gossip vine but this is ridiculous! Reynaldo frantically texted me that Thomas Tobin was named Cardinal.
I keep forgetting English is Reynaldo's second language. Italian is his fourth language.
Joseph Tobin of Indianapolis.
What a relief!

Reports are flooding in from Iowa.
I have a STRONG SUGGESTION to the BISHOPS of the areas that are affected by floods.
It sounds as if the pastors of the area and their assistant bishops, the bishops – ESPECIALLY the diocesan bishop! – and religious priests of the region should get out their copy of the traditional Rituale.
Fathers… Bishops… put on all your gegear it's time to "lace up", get some people together, have them bring their talismans and blessed lucky BINGO charms, get out there and PRAY!
One, two, three, four; these are not the droids you're looking for.
Rain, rain go away and bother someone else today.
For some reason, God has decided to punish the state of Iowa with severe rain and potential flooding so we must do all we can, even breaking out the Olde Rituale and recite the Invicato contra omnia...
way; bother someone else today.

Father D has commented in the past about certain Bishops and their puppies. It makes Father wonder if all Bishops have a puppy? Father D has heard from more than one reader that our favorite protector of the homeless from Sal Francisco has a favorite puppy as well. Who would have thought!Does your Bishop have a puppy? Tell us about him.

If a church is deconsecrated is it still a church? I'm asking because of the recent earthquake in Italy. The church of Saint Francis in Cascia, after being deconsecrated is host of a pornographic art display. Is this why God sent the earthquake to this region?
Dear Reader Peter,
Yes. God is smiting the people of this region as well as the bishop who allowed the former church to be used in such a perverted manner. However you can make a difference by constant ejaculatory prayers and exclamations and by purchasing a few cases of the Norcia Benedictine Beer. Please use the link on Father's blog is that Father gets a little taste too. (N.B. Beer makes a great gift for Father any time of the secular or liturgical year. )
Seriously folks, stop and say a Pater and an Ave for those who have suffered real loss in this earthquake. There is a link to Italian Red Cross here if you can help.
