Pray for the priest.
Blessed John Paul II has his picture burned by muslims and ripped by Sinead O'Connor during a concert.

Pray

Not only that, but it is dishonorable and reprehensible.

This part of the Novus Ordo when a pope retires?

I don't think the whole captain going down with his ship analogy works.  First, in this case, he is still on board the ship, he's just not in charge.  Second, the ship is not definitively sunk.  Ship captains often retire. The analogy is more like a ship going through treacherous waters and the aging captain doesn't think he has the strength and mental capicty to safely navigate the waters and organize the crew, so he turns over command to someone more able, so that the ship does not sink.  Plus, Christ is the ultimate captain, the Pope is more like a first mate/quartermaster.

Obviously, burning effigies at Mass to vent frustration does not correspond with the command to put aside our beef with our brother before offering sacrifice (not to mention profaining the sacrifice by the act of burning itself).

What exactly do Italians mean when they burn images of people?  I believe certain masonic groups require the burning of images of saints as part of the initiation ceremony.  It looks a bit like a curse to me.  What is it exactly?
