I was inclined to be kindly disposed toward the incoming archbishop of Los Angeles. Archbishop Jose Gomez faces a thankless task, taking over a church that has just suffered a major persecution one conducted by his predecessor in office. Whatever the legal cloud following him up from Texas, Archbishop Gomez was formed for the priesthood by members of Opus Dei, a worthy and much-maligned group.
That much sounds promising. The state of catechesis and even of liturgy should improve in that long-suffering archdiocese though it's too much to hope that Archbishop Gomez will deconsecrate the $189.7 million monstrosity Catholic Angelenos call the "Rog Mahal" and sell it off for its proper use as a Sam's Club or a slaughterhouse.
Forgot the link to the article.
Archbishop Gomez is a very good man with a Very Big Job on his hands. Lots of clean-up after Mahoney - we are so blessed to have this Godly man heading the archdiocese.
The Christian word for "hospitality" is like the antidote to that. Philoxenia literally means "love of strangers." This is who we are called to be "lovers of strangers." Lovers of the immigrant, the alien, the undocumented. This love is not some sentimental affection. It's a radical love in which we open our hearts and our homeland to the stranger in need.
The words of Archbishop Gomez, this "very good man", a "Godly man" heading the archdiocese.
The Holy Father could not have chosen a better man for the chief Archdiocese of Aztlán. He might try selling that cathedral, along with any other assets of the Archdiocese, to settle the buggery lawsuits, which are Roger's enduring legacy.
¡Qué viva Aztlán!
Have you personally voiced your concerns to the Bishop himself?
Archbishop Gomez is a very good man
....too bad he’s a complete sell out to the open borders to fill the pews crowd.
Oh, excuse me, I thought I was on a Christian thread with civil discourse.
