Christ Our Hope
The Holy Father arrives on these shores in a few hours. Despite press reports, there is more to American Catholicism than the sex-abuse crisis, in fact the real story, if they wanted to report on that angle now, would be the story of greedy lawyers and innocent priests being victimized. The Pope comes to bring life, with the beautiful theme "Christ Our Hope." There is much to be proud of in the US Catholic Church, I pray these days will be grace-filled and will lead to a fresh and confident revitalization of the Catholic community here in the land of the free.
