Archbishop Nienstedt ‘collected, calm, resolved’ amid controversies

Catholic World News - October 28, 2010

The Minneapolis Star Tribune has published a profile of Archbishop John Nienstedt, whose orthodoxy, defense of marriage, and decision to close parishes have caused controversy in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. “I don’t have a political agenda,” he says. “I’m a churchman, I’m a priest. My big concern is to bridge the gap between God and his people.”
