From reading it – I believe the Cardinal himself is actually penning the entries – such as this one from earlier this week in which he reflects on the death of a significant lay person in the Boston Archdiocese:
I begin this week noting the passing of an extraordinary man. Tom Flatley, who had been suffering for almost two years with Lou Gehrig’s disease, passed away on Wednesday of last week. I was very pleased to be able to celebrate his funeral Mass at St. Agatha Parish in Milton where he attended Mass each day.
Tom was a very, very dedicated Catholic. He used to say that his only job was to get to heaven and to take as many people with him as he could.
Over the course of his life Tom helped countless people. He had a great passion to help the poor and he did so much to help Catholic causes — locally and throughout the whole world. His death was mourned by many, but the witness of his Catholic life — the centrality of the Eucharist, his spirituality and the strong family life that he lived and witnessed to — is a legacy that the Archdiocese of Boston will always cherish.
Are there other Catholic Cardinals that are blogging regularly? How about your local churches?
