Re: Cardinal George sounds a strong warning

May. 29 at 1:02pm | see this comment in context

The Cardinal is continuing to beat this drum in letters to be printed in parish bulletins. Last week, one irate woman came to our bookstore in downtown Chicago, waving the Cathedral bulletin. "This makes it sound like the Cardinal is claiming that the government wants to decide what makes an institution Catholic!" Sister nodded and said, "Yes, that is the very point he is making."The woman just shook her head. She is a social worker for a government agency and had not heard a whisper of this sort of thing before. "Since when?" she demanded. "Oh, about a year now," came the answer.

"Well, I don't believe it. I'm going to ask the President if it's true."

This being Chicago, she probably does have a way to get to the President for his take on the matter. Which is available in every talk he's been giving.

But it was all news to that one woman in the pews.

Stay informed
