View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Archbishop Chaput to Philadelphia?

There are a number reports that tomorrow Pope Benedict will appoint Archbishop Chaput of Denver as the new Archbishop of Philadelphia.

Not only is he a highly respected orthodox cleric, he's a Franciscan!

I wonder if when Bishop Clark submits his resignation next year we might get a Franciscan? That would be wonderful -and the maybe Franciscan priests could return to the diocese, perhaps even take over a parish or two.

Ah, one can only dream (and pray).
