Err...how does it finish?

I don’t particularly care for O’Malley, but when I was in Madrid for World Youth Day (also including non-youth supporters like me and about 250,000 Spaniards my age rediscovering their faith!) in 2011, the biggest US contingent was from Boston. Many of them were associated with the Neo-Cathechumenate, a movement very popular among university and HS students in Spain and Latin America, and a lot of them were sort of charismatic. I don’t like this a lot because it’s just uncomfortable for me, but I do have to recall that at one point the charismatic places, such as Steubenville, were flaky in practice but the only orthodox places doctrinally.

So that was what I thought about O’Malley’s contingent. Also, Denver sent a very big group of kids. At that time, Chaput was still in Denver or at least had organized the groups from Colorado. And he’s also a Capuchin (Franciscan). They were very important in evangelizing the US, and I can only hope that these two have gone back to their roots!

Very interesting observations. It's good to know this stff.

The quote from Tevye (Fiddler on the Roof)--- oh wait, I think it was Tevye's rabbi --- was "G-d bless the Tsar, and keep him.... far away from us!"
