thinking of you
By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 25, 2005
Washington's Cardinal Theodore McCarrick returns from WYD at Cologne to communicate the insight: youth are young.
I had the privilege of leading two catecheses. These are the talks that are given on three of the mornings during the week. One of mine was in a soccer stadium where we had 10,000 young people and the second was in a parish which was crowded with close to 1,000. (It was not I who brought out the crowds, but just the size of the place to which the different groups were assigned!)
Oh, your Eminence, you're too modest!

In early July, the Cardinal did submit his letter of resignation. It's now in the Pope's hands. Please write to His Holiness and urge him to accept that retirement - and pray, pray, pray!!!!

Methinks the crowds showed up *despite* his being there.

Thank you Diogenes, you always make me laugh at least once a day. God bless you!

Can we take up a petition to have this guy retired, or sent to the diplomatic corps?

Hasn't Cardinal "Just call me Teddy" McCarrick retired? I thought that his retirement was accepted by fax? And let's hope the cardinal's words were rooted in Roman Catholicism and not gleaned from Jack Kerouac... for the sake of the youth!
