Tale of Two Archbishops

Grant Gallicho is not letting our Midwestern archbishops off the hook. He dismantles Archbishop Nienstedt’s “apologia tour.” There’s also a fb piece with a link to the Sun-Times musing by Cardinal George:

When I was ordained, I never thought any priest could do something like that. To suddenly realize, yes there are priests who can do things that evil was a shattering moment as it is for many Catholics. . . .  How is it that God didn’t protect the children?

Oof.

I realize that media interviews, even the ones with prepared or limited questions are not theological treatises, but really.

I wonder what other bishops must think reading these interviews, and these hard-hitting analysis pieces.

    Wow.

    Demonstrating the pervasiveness of magical thinking about grace. Needs to read the collected works of Flannery O’Connor for a dose of strong medicine about the supernaturally violent operation of grace. I think Mary and Joseph could have chimed in that, even when God asks, the consequences of accepting grace are very disruptive….

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.
