Rocco reports that Bp. Slattery of Tulsa is now officially the type of Catholic I want to be.
His commentary, though, I think is off:
"Glass chalices, jail, Redemptionis sacramentum and the preferential option for the poor.... What a grab-bag these days are turning out to be."
Incomprehensible grab bag to the secular binary of liberal/conservative "sides," maybe... But to me, it seems to be exactly that unified Catholic spirit that makes perfect sense to the love which knows Christ. Isn't that what binds a fierce devotion to the liturgy with a fierce devotion to the poor?? The presence of Christ--the love for Christ!
