"What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us, too …" –Pope Benedict XVI
G.K.Chesterton
I have never been able to make out what the Progressive Movement is, except that it is rather like a policeman who always tells people to "move on," without telling them where to go.
Cuthbert Mayne
This man is an embarrassment for Great Britain. Along with football hooliganism he’s one of our less than edifying products.

Nice rainbow hat, ummmm...

It's worse than you think... that isn't any "hat". From the photo, it's a Jewish Kippah, a "yarmulke" in Yiddish. :D

What Francis believes (his quote): "Theology can certainly not be reduced to sentiment, but neither can it ignore that in many parts of the world the approach to vital issues no longer begins with the ultimate questions or social demands, but with what the person feels emotionally.”

Significant. Roche is a known enemy of the traditional Latin Mass.

Has the man ever been to a Tridentine Mass? He certainly has never been to the pre 1955 Easter Vigil Mass.
