Yes .. we all know about Fr. Malachi Martin’s work. We don’t judge all members by the few. In most parts of the world, they are still orthodoxly teaching the faith.

She wanted to know why Cardinal Mahoney was permitted to vote in the conclave.

And that is a great question. He is still considered to be in the good graces of the church, as he has not committed an heretical act. The best explanation is here.

Why Doesn't the Pope Do Something about "Bad" Bishops?

When first meeting a Jesuit, one must always ask, Are you a good Jesuit, or a bad Jesuit?

OMG! Good catch there, editor. Yep (raising eyebrows significantly) -- mighty suspicious, all righty. Like this'ere daggone unifier right here:

John 17:21
That they may all be one; as you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

Welcome Noob.

The essence of religion is faith, not fact. I guess that’s why it is so difficult for some, because to see past one’s own world view is more difficult than anything else there is.

The beauty of the Church is that God acts through broken people from all walks of life. All of them redeemed sinners, but sinners none the less.

None are worthy of Heaven, but for the sacrifice of Christ for our sins.

So, you see, God generally goes with the underdog on almost everything. He goes with the most unworthy. Moses was a murderer, as was Saul of Tarsus (Paul). Moses was also both pretty dull and not all that bright, such that he made Aaron go with Moses and essentially speak for him on most matters.

That 115 Cardinals pick the Vicar of Christ doesn’t surprise me in the least. Most of them are asking God to pick for them anyway, and then someone gets picked.

Lately, and I’m talking about the last 100 years or so, that someone has been pretty solid.

So, yeah, God will probably be visiting Jorge, I mean Pope Francis, pretty soon, if He hasn’t already.

Nothing against spaghetti and meatballs, and my wife makes them well. But a nice Argentinian steak would be great . . . uh, oh. It’s Lent, and our new Pope took thename Francis. OK, pass on the steak. I’ll pick up some fresh parmesan for the spaghetti.

Yes, extremely kind. I liked the humble act of bowing his head while the crowd prayed for him.

Not a Catholic here, but I teared up a bit myself. God bless him.

Good call, Joe. Sure didn’t take Wiki long to update.

I really like the idea of a Pope from Latin America. Plus, given his family’s heritage, the Italians can console themselves that an Italian is back in the Papacy.

I’m no canon lawyer, but I think after Abp Gomez took away his right to function as a bishop (which Gomez could do as the Ordinary of L.A.), there was nobody in a jurisdictional position to do anything further-— that is, without a canonical trial, which would take us somewhere into 2014.

Don’t start with me. This is a joyful day, and I will not allow your hatreds and resentments to contaminate it; nor will I waste time, energy, bandwidth, and knowledge on reasoned debate with someone whose obsession precludes any access to logic. You can have the last word; enjoy.

Good day Mrs Don-O!

Here is what Yeshua really had to say about unification, WRT the sheep:

Matthew 10:

[32] Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

[33] But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

[34] Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

[35] For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

[36] And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

The "they" to which Yeshua refered in John 17 were the true sheep, not including the tares that presently constitute the majority of the 'church.'

I’m curious, what does it mean for the cardinals that didn’t vote for the winner? I mean, if you believe the Holy Spirit picks the Pope and you’re a cardinal that didn’t vote for the winner, what doesn’t that say about your spirituality?
I assume they have the same tradition which is manifested at political conventions in the US - after the nominee gets over the top in votes, a motion is entertained, seconded, and passed, making the selection unanimous.

Time will tell which days were truly joyful.

Logic and truth do become obsessions, but to our advancement.

And the good ones always speak the truth, while the ‘bad’ ones always lie...
