A Coffee-Spluttering Moment...

The Catholic Herald is great. One of the bloggers for the online edition is Francis Philips, and while reading her article today on the corrected translation, one bit made me splutter coffee over my keyboard:

"I am dispirited by his peddling the dreary phrase, "the spirit of the Second Vatican Council", as if that dubious and elusive spectre has anything to do with the workings of the Holy Spirit. It doesn’t; the sooner it is buried with a stake through its heart and garlic round the doorposts, the better."

Francis is female!

Ooops! I did wonder, but the photo wasn't very clear, and Francis is usually the male version of the name... so thanks for the correction!

Agreed Mac. Had the same reaction, even without the coffee!
