It's a Susan Boyle moment.
It's just weird. I wonder if he knows "Wind Beneath My Wings"?
He has a fine voice.
So does the Italian nun Sr. Cristina - but at least she saves her pop tunes for television... Nuns just want to have fun?
What is with this stuff? I blame Simon Cowell and all the People Can Sing reality shows.
Lately it has been difficult to take priests and bishops seriously - consistently, that is. After all the scandals, all the confusion about priestly lifestyle - bishops building and selling mansions. Priests as pop stars and celebrities, exorcists and demons. Catholics protesting Catholic moral teaching in their schools, Cardinal against Cardinal, and so on. The scandals, the conflicting messages, the strange behaviour of priests and religious in the world - out of the world, on stage - off stage, what have you: These 'scandals' have really hurt the image of the priesthood - not to mention religious life.
I have never been as tempted to be critical or skeptical as I have been lately. The Church is being made a fool of and it isn't the folly of the cross doing it. If only it was.
Mass isn't a performance or a talent show. Neither is religious life.
