Kvetched Comments Left on Catholic Blogs

We see a lot of this.

Many are deleted, some are not.

Chronic whining, complaining, or bitching.

About everything under the sun: popes living or deceased, Vatican II, etc.

We need to keep positive.

And to have a sense of humor.

Be filled with the Holy Ghost.

It is in poor taste to speak ill of popes. Or to dither about what councils you like or do not like.

Pax vobis.

Brindiamo il Papa: Long May He Reign!

Her order ought to propose her cause for sainthood.

Germany needs modern German saints.

May she pray for us!

Mother Pascalina

A privilege and joy to read her book.

Pope of Little Children

The personal valet of the pope, while holding his red tabarro cape, lifts up a little baby near the entrance of St. Peter's Basilica, in the center aisle.

A tradition, not begun by John Paul II.

Thanks for the pic, Summer!

1960s Madness: Selling the Family Inheritance

Glad much of this is behind us.

In conjunction with his trip to the New World, the pope at that time sold this episcopal cross and ring (both blessed objects) so as to feed hungry people. It gained him good press at the time, no doubt, with all the right headlines. Today such an action would be decried.

In his autobiography, Sheen recalls the taking of this photo.

Angel, with a twinkle in his eye, invited Sheen upstairs in the Apostolic Palace to his private study, with a photographer, to take a photo "to make them (those in the Curia) jealous."
