A Reluctant Sinner: What do you make of this? A Catholic priest is sentenced to 30 hours community service for ringing his church bells

This was a strange story.  Personally I think the priest could have limited the bells to normal times during the day (maybe 9, noon, six) as well as times for Mass, and no one would have cared.  The Lutheran church’s in my town go off throughout the day, and no one cares and even likes them.

  1. Fr. Wrobel needs a reality check. He doesn’t seem to want to cooperate with his neighbours, whose requests are reasonable. He’s certainly not doing to help stem the tide of criticisms against Mother Church and her priests. Perhaps the authorities need to assess his mental and reasoning capabilities……..I’m not making fun of him. The start of mental illness such as depression or dementia/alzheimers often manifests as irregular behaviour such as this.

  2. I can just imagine me complaining about that in Italy….I think it must be a cultural thing. You just accept it when it wakes you up in Europe as apart of life. In America we are not used to that, so I suppose it seems more like a nuisance than something that you just adjust to, Part of being in a more protestant culture? I do not know, but it is interesting that it makes sense to think of them doing it in Europe and not being fined but doing it here makes a lot less sense. Interesting post, at any rate. Thanks for posting!
