USA Today touts Cardinal O'Malley as America's most influential Catholic leader

Catholic World News - March 24, 2014

Following the appointment of Cardinal Sean O'Malley to the new Vatican commission for protection of children, USA Today picks the prelate from Boston as the most influential leader of the Church in the US.

Cardinal O'Malley already sits on the Council of Cardinals, the group of 8 advising Pope Francis on Vatican reform proposals. He reportedly received substantial support in the papal conclave that eventually chose Pope Francis.

    USA Today is not know to do anything in depth and this is a clear example of fluff. How many politicians has he imposed Canon 915 on? The Kennedy fiasco, the large salaries in the archdiocese, are just some of his handiwork. O'Malley as pope? Egad!

    O'Malley? Leave it to the papers for more misinformation. This is the same Cardinal that touted the wonders of Edward Kennedy at his funeral. Enough said.
