While I am not convinced that ALL’s campaign against Cardinal McCarrick will change his mind, there is an interesting post by Zorak on Bishop Kevin Farrell who reports to the Cardinal.
Bishop Kevin Farrell rocks! As Old Oligarch noted, we had an opportunity to witness a deaconal ordination at the National Shrine on Saturday. It was the first time I have seen anything like that and I really enjoyed it. Five young men were ordained, 4 from the Dominicans (since Dominican House is right across the street) and one Franciscan. There were at least 40 priests in attendance, plus lots of monks and nuns. But the real treat was Bishop Farrell’s homily. He informed the new deacons that they should above all, depend upon frequent reception of the Eucharist to provide them the graces they would need for their vocation. And that they should teach respect for Christ in the Eucharist, whether doing so made them “comfortable or uncomfortable.” He spent at least 7 minutes emphasizing this aspect of their ministry. Fairly bold for a man who reports to Cardinal McCarrick.
If you are not already reading the blogs of this husband and wife team, I would greatly encourage you to start.
