What is this “Declaration of anathema on Francis Bergoglio” all about? I, like I’m sure many, have seen this declaration of anathema on the Holy Father by this bishop in Easter rite. How is it that anyone, much less the Byzantine Catholic Patriarchate, can make such a judgment on anyone else using the name of God to do so?
I would have thought that before a declaration of this gravity would have been attempted, one would have initiated some kind of communication first, a letter, an email, a phone call, to at least try and get a clarification of the Pope’s message first. The world is scarier enough already and now to start a fist fight on the Holy Fathers intention and bring down a curse on what he THINKS the Pope’s message is intending to mean. It sounds like the good bishop wants to start a whole new schism between the Easter rite and the Roman Church? tsktsk:
