    Finally, a positive step for the American Church which will slow its march toward secular liberalism. Thank God for Cardinal Burke and for the support he is getting from the Holy Father.

    Oh good! This is loooong overdue. I had at one point been hoping Chaput would be assigned to LAX, but Philly will do nicely to get him the cardinal's beretta. I'm sure he'll make good use of the office and the location. Thanks be to God and to anyone who brings us better bishops!
