Seriously, this priest, for all he’s been through, is calm, reasonable, nuanced, prudent, exact in descriptions, restrained in his actions, pastorally minded, doesn’t exaggerate, is profound in his theology, is reverent before the Lord Jesus. In short, he has a priestly identity in every way, and, it seems to me, with honesty, with integrity. I recognize Jesus in him. I’ll have more to say about this, but for this post, recall the repercussions of Charlie Hebdo (bad analogy, I know). But, in solidarity, I will say that:
Je suis le père Paul Kalchik.
