Everyone now knows about the Wuhan coronavirus, aka 2019-nCoV, a betacoronavirus related to the SARS coronavirus that has emerged from China. It has spread to various locations around the world, not in large numbers though. Human-to-human spread is possible; the details of how and when are not yet clear. If virus only transmits when the person is symptomatic (like other viruses in this group), it will be fairly easy to control. China has closed various borders. The big unknown is that China has been less than honest with the result of the world.

On New Year’s Eve, Pope Francis was greeting people who were behind a barricade. As he was turning away, a woman grabbed his hand and pulled, nearly pulling him over. He tried to pull his hand away, clearly in pain, and she refused to let it go. He was trapped in her grasp and could not get free. So he followed that up with a slap on her wrist. She finally loosened her grip (with the help of the security guy) and he was able to pull his hand away. Surrounding spectators looked at her in disgust.

The hermits of Westray are a group of Catholics (now ex-Catholics) who have voiced their dissent from Pope Francis’ teaching. They resided in the Catholic Diocese of Argyll and the Isles in Scotland. They formally withdrew from communion with Rome and Pope Francis sometime in April 2019, perhaps a bit before. Their formal act of schism has now been recognised by their bishop, Bishop Brian McGee, who has made the position official from his side by issuing a formal excommunication.
