Philadelphia is lucky

The Archbishop of the Diocese of Denver, Charles J. Chaput, will be installed as Archbishop of Philadelphia on September 8.  I think it’s a good move for Philadelphia; Archbishop Chaput doesn’t tolerate the sort of scandal that has overshadowed Cardinal Rigali’s leadership.

I’m very fond of Archbishop Chaput and will miss him terribly, and I know many members of the Archdiocese of Denver feel the same way.  He’s very down-to-earth and does an excellent job of explaining things in terms everyone can understand.   And you can’t miss how much he cares for each and every person he meets – there’s an immediate undeniable connection, and it’s obvious that he has an incredible devotion to his flock.

We’ll be praying for Archbishop Chaput to have the strength and wisdom to take on the difficulties the Church faces in Philadelphia.

    Catholics interviewed by the local media here in Philly seem very happy with the appointment.
    The ones I have seen on TV seem very well informed on Catholic issues.
