bonding

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 02, 2009

It's Religious Ed Congress time again in LA, at which Cardinal Mahony hosts his customary Internet chat-room to let the faithful put their questions to him. As often, His Eminence deals with uncertainties by means of answers that would not occur to Ratzinger. Or Charles Borromeo.

Troubled: Our parish priests are a bit stand off-ish. What are some suggestions to help us parishioners build a bond with our priests?

Cardinal Mahony: Try giving them a big hug!!!!

I can think of 714 million excellent reasons -- considering only the Los Angeles Archdiocese -- why clerical stand-off-ishness ought not be overcome by tactile expressions of affection.
