New Archbishop, old style

Malta! Good old, poor old Malta. Now finally facing the problems that the Catholic Church in the West has faced for far too long. Makes me wonder why the Maltese would want to repeat exactly the same mistakes that brought the rest of Europe so close to the abyss. Number of seminarians dropping, mass aatendance dropping. Instead: Divorce, abortion, gay marriage, relativism, consumerism, egotism, satisfying every need right away, no matter what the cost. Good old, poor old Malta.

The (not so) new archbishop, Paul Cremona, decided that he wants to stick with the traditions a bit longer and even put on the cappa magna on the feast of the conversion of St. Paul:

He probably thought that if his predecessor, Joseph Mercieca, looked so fine in the cappa, he might give it a try as well.

Funniest thing ever!

And one wonders why people are getting more and more ignorant and stupid?
