My friend, Z, GeeeeZ, (blogroll) got me to thinking about my religion. While I do try to be a good Catholic, I sometimes forget, or don't think about it as much as I should. She brought up a great religious man to me. I did some research and I'm convinced, this is a good man.
Timothy Michael Dolan, an Irish Catholic, may be the first American Pope. Really? Yes. Read the homily he spoke in his installation Mass. He speaks to the absolute tenets of the Church. It would be an incredible moment in the Church to have an American Pope. Go onto the link and listen to his homily, but beware, the homily is about an hour into the video. Sorry.
At the least, read the homily. He is a great thinker and he speaks to all of us.
This is a conservative guy who gets it. Watch Bloomberg as he struggles to his feet to applaud the Archbishop's statement about abortion. Priceless. You will need to go to the end to see it.
