Queen Elizabeth’s trip to Ireland wasn’t really on my radar screen. Austen Ivereigh from America:
Commentators on both sides of the Irish Sea are unanimous in declaring the Queen’s four-day visit to Ireland, which ended this afternoon, an extraordinary triumph, one that opened hearts and shifted attitudes, laying ghosts to rest and opening up a new era of friendship for both nations.
Bishops, according to tradition (or meme, if you will) are tasked with teaching, governing, and sanctifying. The Queen seems to have accomplished this in a substantive way. When will we know the bishops mismanagement crisis is beyond us? First, the bishops have to get to the point that they realize, concede, and confess that the problem is theirs. Then they need to find a way to do what the Queen did this week.
