Did he genuflect?
I haven't watched anything with the Holy Father today - I painted instead.
Although I searched for a photo to see what he wore at the Via Crucis. A commenter on another blog stated that if the Pope wore the mozetta tonight - or not - it would determine if the pope was traditional enough for him.
That's bullshit. Fr. Z has a nice post on what the Pope is really saying, really doing. He talks about liberals and conservatives - we all continue to insist upon dividing Catholics into separate factions. That's bullshit too.
The Pope is Roman Catholic. The Church is not a political entity, a worldly institution, or an earthly kingdom. Being Catholic is neither liberal nor conservative, trad nor progressive.
I get the feeling everyone is so busy pigeonholing the Pope, scrutinizing everything he does or says, measuring him according to their preconceived notions on what and how he is supposed to be doing things, that they are hardening their hearts and not listening to what the Holy Spirit is doing or saying.
Sorry the Pope wrecked your Easter.
Perhaps it's better this way.
