Thus one wonders how in the name of God and all that is Holy, Pope Francis could invite Cardinal Mahoney to be his representative for the anniversary of the establishment of the Diocese of Scranton which along with most dioceses in Pennsylvania and throughout the northeast have been reeling from this scandal in an apocalyptic way.
Is it the pope or his advisers who are incredibly out of touch?
Given the apocalyptic papal debacle in Chile concerning Bishop Baros who Pope Francis appointed, the Holy Father is slowly showing some humility and backtracking on some of his more arrogant, insensitive statements and appointments.
Cardinal Mahoney after major protests in Scranton from the laity has decided not to go to Scranton. Do you think Pope Francis nervously asked Mahoney not to go and was this at the insistence of Cardinal O'Malley who has courageously corrected Pope Francis on this apocalyptic scandal?
