Phil, while the road ahead for the Catholic Church is yet long and bumpy, as a Christian, the humility portrayed here fills me with godly pride. Bishop Moriarty, Archbishop Nichols, and their colleagues are to commended for their servant's humility. I credit them as true brothers in Christ.

Thanks for sharing; now may this light shine warmth and thaw hearts in Rome!

Hi Tim,
It is great to have you visit and thank you for the comments. This is a step in the right direction and I agree with you that it gives us hope that these chinks of light can open up a space for even greater brightness to penetrate the darkness in my church.
