Archbishop Gomez Takes Center Stage

Over at Whispers, Rocco Palmo has some great analysis - and photos and audio clips - of the change in leadership in the largest archdiocese in the land, Los Angeles.
This is an important milestone in the history of the American Church and, as Rocco suggests, a kind of return to our earliest origins, before Lord Baltimore and John Carroll and the Irish. It is becoming obvious, as well, that Gomez is well suited to carry on the commitment to social justice that was so central to Cardinal Mahony's legacy.
