First, I would of course understand if the Vatican Newspaper were to make no comment on the Nobel Literature Prize-winner Bob Dylan. He's a poet and singer, and not a publicly-professed (as far as we know) Catholic. In fact, if the Church were working as it ought to, run by faithful adult Catholics, I would be surprised if it did comment.
But it did.
So my question to the Vatican press office is this: if you see fit to say anything, why say something so ungracious? From the story at US News & World Report:
Hey, fellow Catholics, maybe it's time to give him another try.
