Pope Bergoglio is "angry"

It seems that the Pope is angry because the media has not told "the truth of things" relating to deaconnettes? It was one of the other little gems that came out of his interview enroute home from Armenia.

It seems that this Pope has you to make a determination that he should stop talking off the cuff - be it in an aeroplane or anywhere else because every time he does he says something that makes the Catholic faithful groan and the world raise its mockery to just one more level.

Perhaps he should look in the mirror and see the problem first hand. 

Vatican City, Jun 27, 2016 / 01:20 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Francis told journalists on Sunday that he was somewhat angered when reports emerged that the Church was allegedly paving the way for the ordination of women to the diaconate, since no such change is in the works.

“The first to be surprised by this news was me,” the Pope said June 26 during an in-flight press briefing en route to Rome following his three-day visit to Armenia.

“They said: 'The Church opens the door to deaconesses.' Really? I am a bit angry because this is not telling the truth of things.”

The Pope denied he was playing politics when he went out of his way to meet Bernie Sanders. (With his usual charm, he said anyone who thought differently needed to go to a lunatic asylum.)

Now he says he can't understand how someone would connect his initiative on women deacons to proposals to ordain women to the priesthood. (And let's not mention his heretical claim that St Mary Magdalen was an Apostle.)

The guy's not just a heretic. He's a liar.

The oath taken by Montini:
"«I vow: – to change nothing of the received Tradition, and nothing thereof I have found before me guarded by my God-pleasing predecessors, to encroach upon, to alter, or to permit any innovation therein; to the contrary: with glowing affection as their truly faithful student and successor, to safeguard reverently the passedon good, with my whole strength and utmost effort; – to cleanse all that is in contradiction to the canonical order, should such appear; to guard the Holy Canons and Decrees of our Popes as if they were the Divine ordinances of Heaven, because I am conscious of Thee, whose place I take through the Grace of God, whose Vicarship I possess with Thy support, being subject to the severest accounting before Thy Divine Tribunal over all that I shall confess. If I should undertake to act in anything of contrary sense, or should permit that it will be executed, Thou willst not be merciful to me on the dreadful Day of Divine Justice (pp. 43 o 31). Accordingly, without exclusion, we subject to severest excommunication anyone - be it ourselves or be it another -who would dare to undertake anything new in contradiction to this constituted evangelic Tradition and the purity of the Orthodox Faith and the Christian Religion, or would seek to change anything by his opposing efforts, or would agree with those who undertake such a blasphemous venture.»" (Fr. Villa.)

I'm still voting for duck tape for the solution. And another thing........why in the WORLD does he have to constantly 'talk to the reporters' on the plane? I don't remember any other Pope doing that!!

Felix M, the raising of St. Mary Magdalene's liturgical dignity is not heretical–in fact, it is a restoration to the situation that existed before the reforms of Pius XII and St. John XXIII, and she has been called "Apostle to the apostles" for centuries. I prefer to think of this as a small victory for the cultus of the saints against the Jansenistic reduction of that cultus in the reformed rites, including the "1962" books.
