To all of my regular readers, I apologize to you that I have not been reading the Catholic Standard as closely as I should, or posting as much. Work (you know, the event that helps pay the heating, food, clothing, etc.) seems to have taken up a huge amount of my spare time. Yes, there are times when it needs to be done.
As I was eating lunch, and reading the news on line, it seems that Cardinal Wuerl was given a chance to "o-pine" on the state of civil discourse in America.
Considering the state of the Archdiocese of Washington, with dissenting priests and parishes, a Catholic school system slowly getting smaller, Catholic values under attack on all sides, the Cardinal saw fit to write an article on civil discourse.
There are many more pressing issues he could have written about but I guess, and this is my opinion, it is easier to always talk about these sorts of things than making statements about key matters of faith and morals.
Read the story here. What do you think?
