Well, Father, I suppose it is because of your reasonable and rational commentary on the first few days of the pontificate of Pope Francis. I read your blog almost every day though truth be told, I don't comment very often. Job well done.
Thanks. I remember when I was appointed here 9 years ago to replace a retiring pastor who had been here since 1974 how much anxiety parishioners had about be coming and how hard it was to replace a pastor who remained. Some people absolutely hated me and still do and others applauded me; Overall now I think most tolerate me. Let's give Pope Francis time to adjust to his new life. There will be development and changes in him with time. And we will change too and put things in proper perspective.
This is very useful blog, Father. It is a very important preaching tool and you are doing important work here. This is what many of the priests in polo shirts wanted their coffee shops to be.
