Not my stuff!

The ceremony of ordination as Auxiliary Bishop for Mons Scicluna leaves me with a bad taste.

It is too glitzy and luxurious to deliver the message of the Gospel and to reinforce the pledge that the new Bishop means to dedicate his life to the flock he has been entrusted to lead.

Have you ever seen Our Lord or St Francis of Assisi dressed like this?

Such outdated liturgical rites simply reinforce my view that the Church of 2012 is a poor medium to reach out to the Creator.   In fact it is like a frictional barrier which depletes the true message of love between man and God.

As a young visionary Mons Scicluna should have insisted on something more in the true spirit of the Gospel.
