Lots of news about my friend and fellow parish priest, Father Jay Scott Newman. Father Newman spoke to our priests two years ago and was a huge hit with some - and the forerunner of the anti-Christ to others. Following the controversy down South, where the hospitality is both legendary and real, the truly depressing part of the story is where the diocesan authorities first back up one of their priests for preaching the faith - and then denounce him. Speaking to my RCIA group this evening, the subject of St. Thomas More came up........somehow it seems that not much has changed since the 16th Century.
p.s. - Hurricane Scott has been downgraded to a tropical storm.
