The blogging Cardinal Archbishop of Boston has posted his Chrism Mass homily. (You have to scroll down a bit to get to it.) It is a delight, with a couple of very good jokes and a happy reference to a book by my colleague at the Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies, Father Eugene Hemrick. Hearing this homily, it is easy to see how Cardinal Sean has turned things around in Boston. We need more bishops like him.
