Rorate Caeli

Can we get Gregorio de Falco named a Bishop?

And created a Cardinal? Right now? Subito? Command Master Chief de Falco, of the Italian Coast Guard command in Leghorn, Italy: this is the kind of leadership we must have in the Church - not a boatful of Schettinos, abandoning the damaged Barque of Peter and the faithful to the freezing waters of January.

[Warning regarding two foul words and one use of the Lord's name - but please consider the dramatic circumstances involved in the rescue of almost 4,300 people from the abandoned cruise ship Concordia.]

Schettinos of the Church: the Barque of Peter is damaged, but it will not go down!  At the last count, eleven fatal victims (may they rest in peace).
