The way some of us Catholics are raking Pope Francis over the coals these days makes me think that, had our beloved Bishop Myriel (of Les Miserables) been a real priest, a real bishop, a man that we could have had access to, we would have disavowed him too. It’s easy to love a character on paper,…
New favorite song.
I am here for a God who shows up even if I don’t have the right word today or any day. I am here for a God who works wonders even through people who don’t satisfy the gatekeepers of the Church. I am here for the ones who have been silenced by those who checked a call from God against Scripture and came up with a no.
(And the Spirit, I believe, is here for those things, too.)
