Pope Francis, could you do the world a favor, assuming that outright ouster isn't on the table, and reassign Cardinal Mahoney to be your secretary? He can stay in one of the small rooms down the hall, and be restricted to the Vatican except when accompanying you on trips such as this one.

He appears to be the real deal, a servant rather than a master.

"Don't lose hope," he said. "Understand? With hope you can always go on."
Amen, Pope Francis, Amen! ♥

For a take on how some traditionalist Catholics view Francis’ Maundi Thursday Mass, check out this blog:
I came back to the church after years of apostacy and am facinated by the discussions of so-called traditionalist Catholics. Frankly, they seem to be the only ones who will engage in dialogue on issues such as where the Tabernacle should be placed. When I asked my parish priest that question, he almost jumped out of his vestments and literally ran off!
The article attempted to make a wedge issue out of Pope Francis washing women' feet, but --- although this is not the practice in a few parishes or dioceses --- I think most of us Catholics have seen this done for years.
The Holy Thursday foot-washing is not a Sacrament (and the Church cannot change the matter of a Sacrament ---- ever: it does not have the authority). It is a (small s) "sacramental," which means the Pope certainly has the option to include women, without implying the whole structure of sex, gender and Natural Law is going to come crashing down on our heads!!
¡Viva Papa Francisco!

Why criminals? There are devout Catholics who would have loved to be in that position. Talk about casting pearls before swine!
