A teaching moment?
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Jun 19, 2003
Bishop O'Brien explains that he wasn't intoxicated when driving:
Mr. Calderon said the bishop was a regular drinker but not a heavy one. Mr. Romley, the prosecutor, said the bishop told police on Monday that he drank a small amount of sacramental wine at Mass on Saturday night before driving home.
Interesting choice of words. In the same situation, a Roman Catholic would have said he'd taken the Blood of Christ.
The bishops have plenty to talk about in St. Louis.
