PopeWatch suspects the Pope is just trolling us now:


.- Pope Francis Thursday nominated a new camerlengo, Irish-American Cardinal Kevin Joseph Farrell, prefect of the Dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life, and a former bishop of Dallas.

The responsibilities of camerlengo include overseeing the preparations for a papal conclave and managing the administration of the Holy See in the period between a pope’s death or renunciation and the election of a new pope.

Farrell was one of several bishops about whom questions were raised last summer regarding prior knowledge of Archbishop Theodore McCarrick’s misdeeds in the dioceses of Metuchen and Newark.

Farrell had served as an auxilary bishop under the former cardinal in Washington, DC, as well as moderator of the curia and vicar general, a chief advisory role to the disgraced archbishop.

Farrell lived together with McCarrick in a renovated parish building in Washington’s Kalorama neighborhood for six years, and many have characterized McCarrick as a mentor to the cardinal.

Last July, Farrell denied having any knowledge of accusations of sexual abuse or harassment against McCarrick.

A former member of the Legion of Christ, Farrell had also previously denied having prior knowledge of sexual abuse on the part of the Legion of Christ’s founder and former general director, Marcial Maciel.

Go here to read the rest.  This papacy is playing out like a story from the Decameron.

  2. Friday of the Fifth Week in Ordinary Time

    Reading 1 Gn 3:1-8

    Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the animals
    that the LORD God had made.
    The serpent asked the woman,
    “Did God really tell you not to eat
    from any of the trees in the garden?”
    The woman answered the serpent:
    “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden;
    it is only about the fruit of the tree
    in the middle of the garden that God said,
    ‘You shall not eat it or even touch it, lest you die.’”
    But the serpent said to the woman:
    “You certainly will not die!
    No, God knows well that the moment you eat of it
    your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods
    who know what is good and what is evil.”
    The woman saw that the tree was good for food,
    pleasing to the eyes, and desirable for gaining wisdom.
    So she took some of its fruit and ate it;
    and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her,
    and he ate it.
    Then the eyes of both of them were opened,
    and they realized that they were naked;
    so they sewed fig leaves together
    and made loincloths for themselves.

    When they heard the sound of the LORD God moving about in the garden
    at the breezy time of the day,
    the man and his wife hid themselves from the LORD God
    among the trees of the garden.”

    That serpent is one busy snake in the grass. Hungry bugger.

  3. They don’t even care to give lip service to the illusion that
    they give a rip what we think. Rome. Does. Not. Care.

  4. “You certainly will not die!
    No, God knows well that the moment you eat of it
    your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods
    who know what is good and what is evil.”
    The frog said to the princess: “Kiss me and something wonderful will happen. The Princess kissed the frog and she turned into a frog….from Fractured Fairy Tales.
    Do not listen to frogs or snakes

  6. Mostly it’s gallows humor.

    I shouldn’t be surprised that the shepherds* aren’t just letting the sheep wander off, but are instead actively leading them astray,

    but I am.
