Even recently, Pope Benedict rewrote the prayer for Good Friday in which, in those long petitions that we use, we pray for the Jewish people, God's chosen people. It was revised after the Vatican Council because the prayer before that was very insulting to Jewish believers. But now the Pope has revised it again and now it's offensive.
Timely, helpful, informative, respectful of the key distinctions. Gotta be Gumbleton.

The report on Bishop Gumbleton's sermon says: " Because of technical difficulties, the first few minutes of this homily were not recorded". The Holy Ghost having playing a prank, obviously!

You forgot another "important part" of that homily, Diogenes: Another area in which we find ourselves discouraged at times is because we do not allow women to minister in our church. Again, this comes back to full equality for women. Shouldn't we notice what happens in today's gospel? The first person to go and proclaim "Jesus is Messiah" is a woman. Jesus, in effect, has sent her, she goes back to her village, and she tells all of them about this prophet. " Same old, same old broken record.
