Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about!
In the wake of the confusing meeting in October, the American bishops are taking no chances with next year’s conclusion to the two-part marriage summit. They have sent a strong message, electing a solidly conservative team of bishops to represent the U.S. Church.
The president and vice president of the U.S. Bishops Conference, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville and Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, both with impeccable orthodox credentials, were a shoe-in for the team of four. Philadelphia’s Archbishop Charles Chaput, perhaps the strongest conservative voice in the U.S. episcopate, was also selected, joined by his protégé, Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, a member of Opus Dei.
Ooooh! Opus Dei! Maybe he’s a secret Church ninja or something.
Seriously, this is great news. Maybe it will be the Yanks saving the world again.
