The California Catholic Daily can’t let go of Archbishop Niederauer. They posted his MHR homily on their site, followed by a commentary churning with anger from Catholics who seem to expect the cavalry to ride into town like San Francisco is some Wild West outpost. Does Archbishop Burke ride a noble steed and wear a white cowboy hat?
From the homily:
Do you recall what probably bothered the Pharisees most about Jesus Christ? His awful taste in people! Their exact words were: “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them!”
And twenty centuries later, Jesus Christ is still welcoming sinners and eating with them. Indeed, feeding them with his own Body and Blood.
