Carnival Cardinal Lehmann and the devil

Reactions 

The Diocese of Aachen is almost bankrupt. Their Bishop is trying to evict three remaining nuns from the Aachen Carmel, so he can sell their convent for ready money. But on the evening of the 22 January the Bishop decided it was more important to go to the Aachen Carnival. There he could see a mock up of his ancient Cathedral being given over to the devil and his troupe of dancer and Cardinal Lehmann being made a "Knight against Deadly Seriousness". Here is the Cardinal and the devil. The devil is no laughing matter, the state of the Church is deadly serious. But now we know what are the priorities of the Bishop of Aachen and the Cardinal Archbishop of Mainz
