From the Anglican Mail Box
The Archbishop of Cantuarbury apparently celebrated Mass at a basilica in Rome.
I personally question the appropriateness of this, well-meaning though it was.
But the foaming-at-the-mouth denunciations from some Catholics are so outlandish they're embarrassing. Who are these people?! I had to laugh out loud at the suggestion that Pope Benedict is somehow heterodox...
I think it's interesting that only Hyper-fundamentalist Jack-Chick Protestants and hyper-"traditional" Catholics attribute omniscience and omnipotence to the Holy Father. As if he had power over the actions of every priest in Rome, much less every priest in the Church! God would never give us that kind of a papacy, because frankly God is too good.
