It's a crazy world, kiddies.
The RCC doesn't seem to know what it is anymore. The extent of lawlessness, even where there are rules on the books (and doctrine for that matter) is astounding. Honestly, I think after Vatican II Latin bishops and clergy were given a level of autonomy that they were not equipped to handle - bishops having to actually act as bishops, and not simple lieutenants of the Pope and his Curia.
This, combined with other factors coming from within and without, has created a mess. It does not help that it's hard to put your finger on just where John Paul II himself is coming from. It's not that I think he is a malignant, forked tongue liar - but he is duplicitous, precisely because his thinking is fundamentally of two minds; an outgrowth of the post-modern philosophies which underly his approach to everything.
This is why John Paul tries to be "all things to all people" to an extent which lacks coherance. On one hand, he wants reproachment with the Orthodox Church - but on the other, because his interest in relations with the Protestants, he does things which are much more certain to alienate the Orthodox than any "lifting of the anathemas" against the Orthodox in 1965 was likely to mend (this being done by Pope Paul VI.) Most Orthodox need only take a quick look at a typical "post Vatican II church" and the services held within it, to realize that while they may not particularly like us, in reality he probably has a lot more in common with the Tridentine rite "Lefebvrists" than he does with the denizens of John Paul II's church!
Thus it is in this spirit, the same spirit which allowed John Paul II to kiss the Quran as a sign of respect, or to stuff a prayer note into what was left of the outer wall of the second Temple in Jerusalem, or offer prayer in common with idol worshippers, etc. etc. that what is currently going on in the Fatima shrine is being done with.
While I can tacitly agree with Dcn. Lance that the Hindus involved in this incident should not be blamed and were probably acting with some good will in all of this, this says nothing for the allegedly Christian rector and bishop who did not simply allow, but invited and encouraged this activity to take place - they are the ones to blame, just as you do not blame the dog which has done it's business on your yard, but the owner who went ahead and let his pet do this.
As for no one knowing for sure if the Pope will "privately reprimand" the local bishop and rector for letting this happen, because it will be done "privately" I have to reply - who cares? The reality is, if such a private reprimand were to occur (which I highly doubt), by being private it will have all of the consequence for everyone but those men so "reprimanded" of not happening at all. In other words, whatever simple persons seeing this spectacle will bring from it, will remain with them - if it is a total loss of confidence in their church, that will remain. If it is a belief "oh well, all things are equal, like the rector has said", that will remain. This is precisely why very public sins typically require some kind of public reprimand or at least notice - precisely because of the harm they bring to others.
In the Orthodox Church, the Ark of Salvation, which continues in the Apostolic Succession (not only in terms of the laying on of hands, but the communication of the faith) we know that the grace of the Holy Spirit is active, that the Church is His Temple. Outside, all is a doubting question mark, debatable at best - viewed "positively" the best we can judge is that which seems to be moving toward the Church, for none come to the Church or to Her faith by any means save the workings of grace.
But when we see such things being endemic in the modern RCC, am I seeing the signs of grace? Frankly, what I'm seeing is the full fall out of a church so removed from truth, so lost, that even the barest forms inspired by past grace are absent - a deadened monasticism, almost nothing resembling fasting (even the extremely lienient rules of abstaining are gone, except for the paschal season...and the eucharistic fast rules for the Latins are such that as long as you stuff the last bite of your Big Mac down before driving ten minutes to the local parish, you can receive communion licitly), and a liturgical life where all is being honoured but the Triune God, or at best "buddy Christ", that neo-gnostic godling en vogue with so much of what calls itself "Christianity" in our days.
When the Holy Fathers taught that heresies drive away the grace of God, this is precisely the kind of thing they meant - not that God looks angrily down upon those who do not fit within the most narrow definition of correctness, but that when you pervert the way given by God to man, you will ruin yourself and all those who follow. God have mercy upon all who have departed (and are departing!) from the Ark of Salvation.
Perhaps the pictures of the recent Hindu Fatima Shrine incident should be sent to all of the heirarchs in the world's local Orthodox Churches, for I think in them is a cautionary note - this is where promiscuous optimism about that which is outside of the Church, and where contemptuously walking all over and ignoring the Holy Traditions will get you; this is the fruit of the genuinely heretical ecumenism and anti-canonical acts endemic to much of the modern Orthodox dialogue with the heterodox and others outside of the Church.
