Well, he is a disciple of the great Cardinal Siri from Genoa, isn’t he. A good sign indeed!
BTW: Fr. Z. could some time tell some old jokes and stories about the Cardinal, he must know many of them?
I feel a thread drift coming on…
If you haven’t already noticed, over at Father Finnigan’s there are pics posted of his recent Roman Holiday. There’s a very interesting one of some priest in shades http://bp2.blogger.com/_T3lg6p_ATmc/Rj9nZLu50YI/AAAAAAAAA8M/tBRO_4Fq8-M/s1600-h/frzanon.jpg
We know the taste in wine. Now tell us something important. What’s the brew?
Jon, I thought that thread drift was allowed only if you managed to bring in some rumor about the Motu Proprio. For example, something like, â€œFather, is it true that you have given up red wine for beer until the MP comes out?â€ Or, â€œFather, is it true that the beer in the photo is called Malt-u Proprio?â€ Or, â€œFather, is it true that Bishop Fellay believes that priests in Rome wearing sunglasses indicates a delay in the issue of the Motu Proprio?â€ That way, we can keep the blogosphere spinning for a few more days. In Christ,
Everybody’s a comedian!
Since we’re already drifting, may I interpose a motu-proprio-related question?
Father, when a motu proprio is issued, how hard is it for it to be reversed by a future pope? For example, if after the Holy Father dies Card. Mahony is elected the next pope (which God forbid), could he instantly undo it if he chose?
Mark: I don’t know the answer to your specific question but, more generally, it seems clear to me that — after a biblical 40 years in the desert — the restoration of the Church is finally underway, whether or not a motu proprio actually appears, whoever is the next pope.
