Well done! Reply Farmmom October 29, 2006 - 11:16 pm A quick math estimate shows 27% of 60 million to be a little over 16 million who attend Mass each week. That does sound like a more reasonable figure of actual attendees don’t you think? Reply tony c October 29, 2006 - 11:26 pm Money quote: “And so, the question arises, “Where is this church?” It is certainly not situated in Andrew Greeley or Richard McBrien, or Sister Chittester, …” How can you not like this guy? Reply Rich October 30, 2006 - 6:48 pm Bruskewitz had the FSSP seminary built in his diocese, he brought Scott Hahn into the church, and he let Catholic employees of Planned Parenthood know that they had excommunicated themselves. I still remember his comments about the overuse of the word ministry: �The term �minister� means everything now. The janitor is the minister of the mop. It gets silly.� Bruskewitz is tops. Reply roberta trew October 31, 2006 - 11:16 am THANKS for the Bishops stirring words! I’d like to send it to every bishop and priest in the USA.And thank the Lord there still ARE bishops like this.
