Father Gordon MacRae has written about former Boston Archbishop, Cardinal Bernard Law (✝2017), who was vilified by The Boston Globe. Before that he was a champion of justice in the Civil Rights Movement. Please read and share: “Cardinal Bernard Law on the Frontier of Civil Rights.”
Here’s a comment that just came in over at These Stone Walls:
Amazing article. I was stationed in Okinawa when the storm began in Boston. I remember thinking that I should try to address the situation in a homily. My Marines in attendance at that Mass told me they were quite aware that the vast majority of priests were good men trying to do God’s work and that the media was overdoing the coverage. I now admit, after reading your excellent article about Cardinal Law, that I did not take the time or make the effort to find out who the real Cardinal Law was. Shame on me. Thank you. Fr Gordon for your courage and telling the truth that I believe many people, including Catholics, need to hear about an exceptional priest, Bernard Law. Semper Fi.
