No kiddin'...

I never heard him say that was the worst thing that went on at Assisi.  But here is what he said about the "beatification" of the Pope of Assisi:

Quote:Interviewer: The second question regards your thoughts about the beatification of Pope John Paul II.

Bishop Bernard Fellay:  A very, very mixed feeling. The impression of an incredible rush, despite all the rules that the Church provides before proceeding to such an act. There is a sense of imprudence. For example, when the Church wants to beatify or to canonize, she used to examine what was said or written by the candidate very closely. In this case, however, most of what has been written is still in the secret Vatican archives which have not been opened yet. Therefore we remain ill at ease. We fear a will to seal a cause that John Paul II began and wanted to follow during his pontificate, a cause for which he wanted to be the apostle.

Gift of understatement, indeed.
