THE JOY OF THE GOSPEL

 
Christ is risen


"When we find a priest who lives with such anger and tension, we think: This man drinks vinegar for breakfast. Then, for lunch, pickled vegetables. And in the evening, a nice glass of lemon juice"
~Pope Francis

  1. I love this blog, but I also love Father Cassian Folsom, leave him alone whatever idiosyncrasies he might have his heart is in the right place (i've met him). Pope Francis during Mass looks positively dour as well, but we of course don't judge books by their covers.

    1. I've met him, too - and then some. You've obviously never disagreed with one of his ideas, all of which are the only correct ones, excuse me RIGHT ones (to quote you). "Idiosyncrasies" is one of way of putting it . . . oh well, De gustibus, etc. But as for "leaving him alone," any "enclosed" monastery (or convent) that hooks up and televises its "enclosed" life for the world to enjoy and re$pond to is inviting . . . well, response.

  2. If that is really a picture from Easter (Christ is risen!) the poor man is probably trashed from a week of fasting and vigils, and is just trying to stay conscious and keep his eyes open....

    I’d much rather see this than a fat happy presbyter grinning into the camera with his neo-con$ervative buddie$ while spewing venom and nastiness.

  3. Not to mention it's pretty ironic that Francis' first Encyclical is entitled JOY of the Gospel while H.H. insults everyone who does the day to day work in parishes, openly mocks spiritual gifts he's given, telling people "please don't laugh". After reading Francis' sayings I think to myself: " THIS man drinks vinegar for breakfast and lemon juice after."
