The Shepherd One Beerhaus
Don't be fooled, however -- it may look like Hoegaarden or some kind of Hefeweisen, but it's more likely the Pope's beloved Orangina/Fanta....
Given two elements in this shot, it's an easy caption. Four words will suffice: "BAD DAY FOR SSPX."
And, lastly, today's visit to Auschwitz (fulltext of B16's message) marked the third occasion in a year on which Cardinal Joachim Meisner of Cologne has shed public tears.
This isn't a bad thing -- it's actually quite moving, actually, not to mention refreshing, and the cardinal deserves thanks for reminding all of us how nice it is when a prelate doesn't let his emotions be conditioned out of him along the path of ascent.
Four years ago at Dallas, remember well that the US bishops held a "Mass for the Gift of Tears." Suffice it to say, it wasn't a gift God granted them....
Despite the delay, maybe Meisner could lend an assist and serve as the gift-bearer. Yes, it'd be a bit belated... but better (four years) late than never.
