Cardinal Arinze criticizes Belgian bishops’ liturgical service for same-sex unions

CWN Editor's Note: “Human beings have no power to change the order established by God the Creator,” Cardinal Francis Arinze said after the bishops published a liturgical service for same-sex unions. “Even if the aim is to be pastorally helpful to homosexual couples, this is an error on the part of the bishops.”

The prelate, now 89, was Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments from 2002 to 2008.

    Why is it that we hear wise criticisms from the elder Cardinals but nothing from the Chair of Peter? It would normally be something that would be time for chin scratching but in this case, it's only worthy of planting your hands into your face in despair.
