Phoenix

By Cheshire (articles ) | May 08, 2003

Several years ago an international Catholic lay organization, highly commended by the Pope, held a convention in Phoenix attended by a Cardinal, a prominent Archbishop, and numerous other prelates, all of whom are flawlessly obedient to the Holy See. One does not imagine that life in Phoenix is more hectic than in other places, but the Bishop of Phoenix was "too busy" to attend any of the convention events, including the Mass in his own cathedral-- although he was seen walking nearby.

That place needs reform. But reform requires a reformer.
