Bishops are selling their SUV's and settling for hybrid/electric models and large fiats like Pope Francis uses. They are getting rid of their extravagant homes and moving into cathedral rectories, like Pope Francis has moved into the Vatican Motel 6. They are recycling like Pope Francis and installing environment friendly heating and cooling systems and rather than use air conditioning, their roll down their windows, like Pope Francis does.
Yet when it comes to the Liturgy they fail to model themselves after Pope Francis. He never ad libs during the Mass, never! Never after the Sign of the Cross and formal greeting does he banter with the congregation and say "hello" or for good night's sake, "Good morning!" Never does he give into banal chatter or gives a mini sermon prior to the Penitential Act. He simply reads what the Roman Missal says in order to introduce either the Penitential Act or the Rite of Blessing and Sprinkling Holy Water.
These are the altars of Pope Francis in continuity with Pope Benedict. How many of you out there in Southern Orders land have this in your cathedrals or parishes??????
