'Summorum Pontificum' (2007) went a good deal further, stating that priests were no longer obliged to ask special permission of their bishop to offer the traditional liturgy. They could just do it without restriction.
But women washed and kissed Jesus feet, and dried them with their hair. Really over the top behavior. Inappropriate on so many levels at once. Sinful women. "Don't you know what kind of a woman it is that's toucing you?" they said. And the Pharisees were, predictably, aghast.Jesus is Lord, so, no, that's not over-the-top behavior. And of course Jesus was a peacemaker. But Pope Francis is causing (by way of his actions) good Catholics (not heretics!) to argue amongst themselves because he went against Church rule. So while most can readily see peace in caring for the poor/downtrodden, there's not much peace seen in good Catholics sparring.
Jesus defended the women, too, which ended up making the Pharisees despise Him. His behavior was too disturbing and unconventional to be a very good peacemaker, I suppose.
“Something about a shepherd who left his 99 sheep on the hillside, and went out to seek the one sheep that was lost?”
Very well put. At our church’s (Prot.) Maundy Thursday service they talked about the foot washing as Jesus showing how to be the servant, and to serve others. And to “love one another as I have loved you.”
My mind thought of the Pope washing these imprisoned youth’s feet and recalled the story of “who is my neighbor” and the “Good Samaritan”. I think it is clear that the Pope is going to be working hard so that ALL can hear the Good News.
So -— I love ya, mlizzy, you know that -— stop sparring already!
Honi soit qui mal y pense.
Or as I like to say, "You're the one with the problem, not me."
Correct. And Cardinal Bergoglio never obeyed the the latter, Summorum Pontificum, in his archdiocese. As a matter of fact, he punished priests who tried to exercise their rights.
It concerns me that the Archdiocese is, as you say, "A Summorum-free zone." :o( He "punished" the Latin Mass priests how?
