A PLEA TO THE HOLY FATHER
Michael Brown has written a plea to the Holy Father on the forthcoming event of his visit to the U.S. His plea details the problems we face in the Church here in America and asks Benedict to address them one by one.
I think he speaks for a great many of us. I know he speaks for me. Those things he asks Benedict to address are the very matters that are undermining my own faith.
May God grant Benedict the wisdom to speak to America in such a way that we hear God talking to us so emphatically that we, laity, priests, and bishops, cannot help but respond.
