The vicar of the parish church in Castel Vittorio in Italy is outraged by the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. In protest, he therefore burned a photo of the Pope on sunday during the Mass, . "This is the Pope? No, that is not the Pope, because he has left his flock in the lurch," said the cleric during the sermon. Priest Don Andrea Maggi held up the picture of the Pope and then lit it with a candle. The mayor and other churchgoers present were shocked and left the church. The mayor has filed before a formal complaint with the Curia of the Diocese of Ventimiglia-Sanremo. The parish priest has been noticed as repeatedly negative in the past, it states.
