Italians like powerful emperors and even nationalistic, authoritarian strongmen like Mussolini. So, Trump is a natural for them.
Wow. A 65′ effigy.
I hadn’t seen this on US media, maybe because it isn’t Fake News. But, I wanted to make sure that YOU got to see it. Enjoy. No thanks required. This is my duty and honor.
So What Happens To Credibility Of The Bishops Consecrated By Now (Thankfully) DEFROCKED Theodore McCarrick?
Bishops, let alone Archbishops & ex-Cardinals, don’t get defrocked often. So, this issue that crossed my (ever fertile) mind doesn’t come up that often. What happens to the credibility of bishops who were LEGITIMIZED by Theodore McCarrick during his very long tenure as a bishop, archbishop and then cardinal.
‘Legitimized’ in this context referring to episcopal consecration — i.e., a bishop, per his standing as a bishop, elevating another to be a bishop.
This is the so called ‘Apostolic Succession‘. Each Catholic bishop is supposed to have a direct line to one or more of the original Apostles via this mechanism where a new bishop can only be established by an existing bishop … the theory being that the very first bishops were established by the original Apostles.
But, a bishop who gets defrocked could NEVER have been a worthy successor to the Apostles. He would have always been flawed. Otherwise he would not have got defrocked.
So, this would mean that McCarrick was a fraud when he was a bishop. Thus his consecrations have to be flawed if not bordering on fraud.
Think about it. I bet the bishops he consecrated are none too happy. You can bet on that.

This was 9:41pm, Monday, February 18, 2019 — ahead of the ‘Super Moon‘ on the 19th. The moon was bright and had been all evening/night. I had taken some previous picture too. Pretty impressive. Wanted to share with you. Enjoy.
Given that I was a HUGE Cat Stevens fan I can never look at moonshadow without his song playing in my head. So, I wanted to share that with you too since I am sure that some of you have never had the privilege of getting to know THE Cat. So, here … Enjoy it too.
