…there would have been some serious butt-kicking going on. This is a totally shameful incident by monks and clergy that we expect the most dignified and Christ-like behavior from. If these were my kids I first would have popped them both on their bottoms, then sent them to their rooms for a couple of hours, while I confiscated their Playstation. And at the end, both would have apologized and made up – because that is what brothers do.
How are we to move forward to unity with some of our closest Christian brothers when you get knock-down drag-out brawls over who gets to process through the church? Just shameful.
