the specter of machismo

I know I’ve lived a sinful life, but now I try to avoid criticizing the clergy.  They get demonized day in and day out; they don’t need me to join the pile.  Cardinal Ouellet says that the Catholic priesthood suffers from a culture of extreme machismo.  All I will say is that I do not agree that today’s priests suffer from an excess of this sort.  May God remember at the Day of Judgment that that’s all I said.

  1. Don’t worry too much brother. Our time is a testament to God’s sense of humor, and I suspect no one will leave purgatory before they’ve gained a feel for it. Reactionaries are ahead of the curve in this regard at least.

  2. Let’s all thank God that Cardinal Quellet suffers so little from machismo.
