|Pope Francis and Archbishop Chaput|
Pope Francis has accepted Archbishop Chaput's invitation to visit Philadelphia next year. The occasion will be the World Meeting of Families in September.
The Bear wonders if there are any tea leaves to be read in this. Archbishop Chaput, as most readers of this blog will know, is solid. Damage control after the October Synod, or a signal to bishops beforehand?
NOTE: the Bear's essay related to Vatican II and the Babylonian Captivity may be below the "Older Posts," link although it is fresh today. How are Jeremiah's prophecies relevant to us? The Bear has some thoughts here.
