Priest burns photo of former pope in most terrifying sermon ever3/4/2013
When the pope revealed he was tired of being the head of the Catholic Church, it was easy to understand where he was coming from, because he’s just a frail old man who needs a rest, right? One priest in rural Italy wasn’t quite so forgiving. Father Andrea Maggi was apparently so pissed about Benedict trotting off to retire that he likened his departure to a captain jumping ship, then dramatically set fire to a photo of him with a nearby candle. The priest left churchgoers shocked and confused. “I know it may be a difficult time for him, but it was still a serious thing to do,” said Gianstefano Orengo, mayor of Castel Vittorio. [Source]
