There’s a New Sheriff in Town

Evidently we have a new archbishop. Bishop Jerome Edward Listecki of La Crosse has been named to the seat vacated by Timothy Dolan.
Read all about it here.

Certain aspects of this appointment make me apprehensive. According a source cited in the Journal Sentinel article, “He’s very strong in terms of Catholic identity, basic issues of pro life, gay marriage, stem cell research…[y]et not doing much on social justice, or global peace.” Um, isn’t social justice a massive part of the Catholic identity? Wasn’t Jesus Mr. Social Justice? And he’s not so good on peace? What does that even mean? Yikes. But people can be wrong, and people can change, and I’m going to just go ahead and put out the welcome mat. It’s good to have an archbishop again and we’ll just see about the other stuff.
