Patrick Coffin: "Espero que al padre Weinandy le gusta la comida en Siberia"

Duración 2: 26 minutos

Siberia? Capuchin Father Thomas Weinandy, a theologian and former chief of staff for the U.S. Bishops' Committee on Doctrine, wrote a letter to Pope Francis telling him that he is causing "chronic confusion," appointing bishops who "scandalize" the faithful, and prompting ordinary Catholics to "lose confidence in their supreme shepherd." Patrick Coffin, a former EWTN host, not exactly outspoken against Francis, wrote on Twitter: " This is huge. I hope Father Weinandy likes the food in Siberia."

A Sign from God: Weinandy writes that he asked God for a sign showing him that he should write the letter. So, while being in Rome he asked God to send to him the next morning a someone he knew but had not seen in a very long time and would never expect to see in Rome at this time and who was not from the United States, Canada or Great Britain, and who would say to him, ‘Keep up the good writing’.

The next morning Father Weinandy went to pray in two Roman churches and then met a seminarian for lunch in a street restaurant. Quote: “What I had asked the Lord the following night was no longer in the forefront of my mind.” The two were sitting outside and towards the end of the meal an archbishop appeared between two parked cars in front of their table. Weinandy had not seen him for at least twenty years.

The two recognized one another immediately. Because of the archbishop’s recent personal circumstances, Weinandy would never have expected to see him in Rome or anywhere else, other than in his own archdiocese. After a short conversation, the archbishop said to Weinandy: “Keep up the good writing.”
