After reading the words of the good Cardinal I went away skeptical. While he made a valid point, it seems more than a bit duplicitous for the Cardinal to speak honestly about any "longing" for the Church to stand tall and take Her rightful place in the world when he is one of the fellows who is contributing to Her shame and degradation.
