The blogging Cardinal

As reported here and here, Cardinal O'Malley has dipped his toe in the blogging waters. We should all hop over there and check it out and offer our support for this endeavor. This is a truly great way to open up the Church and her leaders and make them more accessible to the 21st century man and woman. It's my not-very-humble opinion that this type of real-time and honest communication is the beginning of the road out of the mess the child abuse scandal has caused. I think this is the type of openness the Second Vatican Council had in mind. Let us pray his endeavor meets with success and inspires more of our leaders.
