A Tale of Two Bishops

I have been listening to a bit of background on the man who became Pope Francis. As the Cardinal Archbishop of Buenos Aires, he took the bus to work and lived in a simple apartment. Contrast that with our own ordinary. Upon coming to Cincinnati in the middle of an economic crisis, we (i.e., the Archdiocese) purchased for Archbishop Schnurr an expensive (by my standards) home in an exclusive neighborhood. It was necessary for him to have a large private home for entertaining guests (er, exercising a “ministry of hospitality”) and housing visiting family members.

The original story from the Cincinnati Enquirer can be found here.

You could say that I’m one of the people in the pews that were irritated (to put it mildly) by the move.
