Seen on the web – re: Bishop William E. Lori, the newly appointed Archbishop of Baltimore

Does anyone here believe Obama or his staff are nuanced enough to understand the symbolism in Pope Benedict’s assignment of Lori?

Baltimore is the motherland of the Catholic Church in America, going back to the Act of Toleration in I believe, 1648. It is the seat of the Catholic hierarchy, the site of America’s first home grown religious order The Sisters of Charity of Elizabeth Seton.

In my childhood the nuns, those Sisters of Charity, would ask us if the conflict was between Faith and Country, which would we choose. I think Catholics are about to have that question posed to them.

The Roman Catholic Church is, I believe, about to seek the intercession of archangel Michael. It is girding for battle.
