This is new information to me.
Puzzling, though, that he chose to ride the city autobus in Buenos Aires rather than hail a diocese van, in light of this disability. I could see even the three steps in and out of the bus to be an obstacle for one so afflicted. Maybe the bus story is not so recent?
As we have now seen him kneeling to wash women’s feet, I am beginning to question this “disability”. Perhaps it was spin put out there to excuse an abuse.
Strange how a man can kneel to wash people’s feet, but he can’t genuflect before Our Lord! I suppose genuflections at the consecration don’t make good photo-ops - or maybe I’m being too cynical
