19Oct Leadership vacuum in Church in the U.S.A. causes problems world wide

The National Catholic Reporter carries a robust editorial on Cardinal Ouellet's response to Archbishop Viganò. It challenges the role of those U.S. catholics "whose primary ambition, it seems, is to convince the rest of us that the Christian Gospel was actually promulgated to justify the most extreme expressions of American-style capitalism."
It concludes "The work ahead will require more than bluster and misappropriated slogans. It will require accessing the deepest levels of our sacramental tradition. It will require the imposition of unprecedented accountability from bishops. It will also require bishops with the will to confront the toughest questions about how the clerical culture arrived at this point."
