NYC St. Patricks Parade
#3
I'm all for being kind and holding out my hand to someone who's living in sin- to help them out of that lifestyle, but Cardinal Dolan laughing and cracking jokes all the time with those people and the allies of their sinfulness does not help them.  There is a time to be funny, and a time when it's inappropriate.  Cardinal Dolan does not seem to know the difference, and I think that's why some find him particularly annoying.  He was a better Archbishop of Milwaukee than what they'd had before (which isn't saying much).  Also, from what I understand, he was a decent rector of the Pontifical North American College, but compared to what the diocesan seminary here was like, that's not hard to accomplish.  I know good, faithful Catholics who knew him or at least knew of him when he had those assignments who think very highly of him.  I've also read a book or two of his, and they weren't bad.  What a shame- it seems that the praise of men has made a once-good man proud.  If I become a priest, I hope I never get attention like that.  The praise of men- even when it is not invited- can create such a temptation for people.
