Too bad we can’t get him back in Denver. Not that Archbishop Aquila is a slouch, just miss the Archbishop Chaput’s way of speaking. Once he was giving a talk about those who dissented from catholic teaching and said “being catholic is like being pregnant. You can’t be kinda pregnant and you can’t be kinda catholic. Either you are or you aren’t.” When someone asked a follow up about what such people should do he answered “change their minds and follow the Church.”
I think JPII being in Denver back in 1993 will likely be the last papal visit for the mountain states for a while, but I guess I can be (grudgingly) be happy for Philly.
