President of Italian Bishops booed at funeral of leftist priest

Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, the President of the Italian Bishops’ Conference, was booed today by some people in attendance while celebrating the funeral of leftist priest Father Andrea Gallo.

Father Gallo was a very famous cleric, hence the high-ranking prelate was present.

However, it was no secret that in the past Father Gallo had more than a fight with his conservative superiors. The funeral was packed with Father Gallo’s supporters, and some of them didn’t appreciate Cardinal Bagnasco’s homily, during which the prelate tried to minimize the past quarrels between Father Gallo and his Archdiocese of Genoa.
