our new Archbishop Kurtz was in attendance! It is so wonderful to have support like that coming from the hierarchy, especially considering that Archbishop Kelly didn't even come to the annual Walk for Life.
There were about 350 people there, so I'm guessing people knew that the Archbishop was coming. Hopefully this exposure to what's going on downtown will inspire people to devote maybe one Saturday a month to praying outside the mill.
I caught a little exchange between some of the escorts that was startling in its stupidity. Apparently they think the Archbishop was violating the "separation of church and state." What? Do they just want him to keep his religion inside the four walls of the Church? Haven't they heard about that pesky "free exercise" clause? You know, the one that is actually in the Constitution?
Sigh. I hope they don't go to law school. They'd probably get straight A's and end up on the Kentucky Supreme Court . . .
