The Archbishop Responds...

Archbishop Niederauer’s response to the scandal generated by his offering the Blessed Sacrament to two members of the infamous “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” at the equally infamous Most Holy Redeemer Parish on October 7, was, with all due respect, pathetic. His Excellency asks us to believe that he did not know that the two drag wearing men, with painted faces, in obviously satirical religious habits, at Most Holy Redeemer Parish, were members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. This is on a par with His Excellency’s professing not to know House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s stand on abortion, a claim he made on KCBS radio on February 4, 2007. Speaking as a member of the flock, this “lack of knowledge” doesn’t give me much confidence in my shepherd.

I am wee bit disheartened to find this blog. Another news story referenced this blogsite and I navigated to it. It strikes me as very sad that a blogger who identifies himself as "85 years *young*"does not offer more hopeful messages. In reading through these postings, I felt very sorry for this man, *presumably*, who served in seemingly prestigious roles in the Church. I would expect more from someone who had a leadership role, seems to have a real affinity for working with young people, and has a cat which commands some tenderness. If the blogger could restructure his musings to be more hopeful, the future would not be so bleak and dismal. I guess also I am feeling a little befuddled as to why he is lamenting and lambasting this generation. As a chronologically young person, I am wondering if this older/younger man does not realize that it was he that created the situation we are in. In the end, forgo bitterness, vitriole, and sarcasm. Make the last years of life imbued with more hope for you and all of us. Oremus pro invicem!
