The Bear doesn't even know where to start today. Lutherans knowingly given Holy Communion with Vatican approval. Pope Francis officially changing the rules so everybody gets their feet washed, including women and young children, and young women. [EDIT: having commented on the way many young women dress for Mass, the Bear doubts this will necessarily be accomplished with the decency a moment's thought concerning wardrobe would dictate.] To the pure all things are pure, but the Bear can't help feeling creeped out. Norway making Muslim immigrants take a class on how not to rape women.
[EDIT: So, what is in the mind of priests who give the Body and Blood of Christ to people who aren't in communion with the Church, haven't prepared to receive worthily, believe what they are receiving is only bread and wine, and are, in point of fact, heretics? The answer is easy. A mania for Christian unity (a hallmark of Modernism), especially on the eve of the big Reformation Ball where all the bishops, both Catholic and Lutheran, will gayly waltz wearing their finest gowns. At the end, they'll repeat three times, "I believe in Love" while clicking their heels together and the Catholic Church will dissolve into rainbow sherbet and run into all other religions, just like in the Pope's Jesuit Love-Cult video.]
This caught the Bear's eye, though, at Eponymous Flower.
Curial Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, President of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, said on June 23, 2015 at the Europe Forum in Bilbao, the Pope had confided to him on 18 June in Santa Marta: "I know that there are many blogs against me." It was a statement that he could only make from information provided by others.Perhaps he pores over a translation of St. Corbinian's Bear ephemeris late every night. A Bear can dream, can't he? [EDIT: that sounded mean. The Bear has no idea how bewildered and hurt Pope Francis might possibly be at his age. He's not an enemy, and the goal isn't to somehow hurt him. He's more like a computer virus. "ATTENTION! YOUR CHURCH HAS BEEN INFECTED WITH THE FRANCIS VIRUS. TYPE: TROJAN HORSE. THREAT LEVEL: HIGH." He may just be doing what he was programmed to do. It's not personal, Holy Father. It's strictly business. He's not going to change no matter what he hears about in some blog. If anyone has ever dealt with old people, they know they don't change.]
A comment from Andrea Torinelli, apparently some sort of sycophantic journalist at the Vatican, made the Bear burst out laughing. He complained that ephemerists find something to criticize Pope Francis about every day!
Well, dress me up in a tutu, put me on a unicycle, and call me Caroline the Dancing Bear!
Why the Hell does Senor Torinelli think that might be? Pope Francis must schedule daily outrages a year in advance! And on some days two or three! Ephemerists aren't choosing to devote huge chunks of their precious days making up stuff about the Pope.
And then there's Cardinal Koch, behind the awful "Gifts and Calling of God Are Irrevocable" Jews don't need Jesus press release, that the Bear has written extensively about lately. He slammed the SSPX for objecting to the disastrous policy toward the Jews. He questioned whether they could even be called Catholic, because they did not show due obeisance to the Jews. In this the Bear is with the SSPX. As for Cardinal Koch's infamous press release, which throws Jesus (and the Jews, for that matter) under the bus, the Bear has printed out a ream for suitable use in... nope. There are questions the Bear will not answer, so long as there is injustice in the world. Anyway, it is non-magisterial agitprop.
Is the Bear antisemitic? Of course not. He has no interest in what one group of humans think about another, or of him for that matter.
He will say this, however. They have dressed him up in a tutu, put him on a unicycle, and called him Caroline the dancing Bear. So you probably shouldn't take anything he says too seriously.
