about this site
Catholic Sensibility is a personal blog by a Catholic layperson with comments and occasional other writings by Catholics and non-Catholics. We make no particular claims to have the completeness of a Roman Catholic expression of Christianity. It contains opinion, interpretation, and personal musings. That’s it. Nothing official or authoritatively connected to the Magisterium.

I’ve hesitated commenting on Cardinal O’Malley’s self-disinvite from BC’s commencement. He seems to be a smart guy. I don’t know why a supercardinal would resort to the tired old strategy of boycotting a college’s honorary speaker. In the past, on … Continue reading
