Why I love this man.
I hope he gets a cardinal's hat.
I love how he is able to speak openly of what's happening in the Church.
I often feel like clergy don't. They don't see the problems with the church. And they are adept, like politicians, at avoiding uncomfortable topics and observations.
We can't talk to each other in this Church. Honesty is not valued because fidelity to the Church's teachings are not valued. You can't be Catholic, neglect Church teaching, and claim to be faithful.
