On the day of the feast commemorating Our Lady's birth, Archbishop Charles Chaput was installed as the shepherd of the flock of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Between Kermit Gosnell, flash mob violence and the clergy sex abuse scandal, the city founded by William Penn has come to resemble the epicenter of decay more than the City of Brotherly Love. Let's pray we can put all of that behind us under Bishop Chaput's guardianship.
And please, Bishop Chaput, with all due respect, light a fire of Eucharistic love by following the Holy Father's example by requiring the faithful to kneel and receive the Lord from your hand directly on their tongues. You needn't learn the TLM to do this.
God Bless you Archbishop Chaput!
