at the core of the Church's mission

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 28, 2004

Witness:

"I have not gotten to the stage where I'm comfortable in denying the Eucharist," Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, archbishop of Washington, D.C., said in an interview with The Associated Press.

And, deep down, isn't the personal comfort of bishops what our Blessed Lord became man to bring about?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    He is comfortable with Catholic polititians denying it..but personally he is not comfortable. Same thing about abortion. May be other things too.

    George Weigel tells a story in "Letter to a Young Catholic" that O'Boyle of Wash., DC submitted a proposal that Vatican II pronouce on the possiblity of intelligent life on other planets. He laughed out loud. The archivist asked what was funny. Weigel said: ".after fifteen years of working there, I should have thought that the first thing the archbishop of Washington would have wanted to determine was the possibility of intelligent life in his own diocese." Maybe it's something in the DC water.

    There's nothing like a little Theology with a Nerf whiffle bat from our Saints in the making in Washington, DC -- home of Caesar. All the world's a stage.
