Well it’s obvious from the hits on these threads and the news stations covering it worldwide..that many DO care how the Representative of their faith goes about representing them.
Anyone who has international interest is going to be critiqued....particularly concerning most mainline religions and their leadership.
Yes, including me and virtually everyone on these threads.
I can see both sides of it -- the 'slippery slope' possibility as viewed by the traditionalists (potentially leading to arbitrary changes in rubrics); the 'emulate Jesus' side as seen by others (needs little explanation). I don't have the background to characterize the two points of view in more formal ecclesiastic terms.
In any case, please have a Blessed Easter!
