Interesting last few days, don’t you think? His Eminence, Timothy Cardinal Dolan offers his services to both the GOP and Democrats to offer the closing prayer at each convention. After all, he IS a pastor first. The Republicans happily accepted (not surprising) and the Dems said no thanks (not surprising).
Attacks flew immediately from the left that the Cardinal had chosen sides and had finally admitted he was a Republican. Problem with knee jerk reactions is that, well, usually it’s jerks who make them. The real deal is that His Eminence did extend the offer to both parties and was summarily dismissed by the Democrats.
Now that hyper-left has finally caught up on their reading, they realize that the egg on their face should have been eaten for breakfast instead. So the DNC reconsidered and extended the hand of peace and accepted Cardinal Dolan’s invitation.
Now, our boss here at ACBlog, has asked us to refrain from any critical observations on this issue until after the conventions (both) have come to a close. We have decided to honor that and to be “Always Catholic”.
The prayer offered tonight at the RNC was solemn yet uplifting. The Cardinal’s backbone was prominent when he started the prayer with a Sign of the Cross…Thank you, Your Eminence!
The kids here at Always Catholic ask that you do the same at the DNC. After all, you ARE a pastor first.
AS Sofia says, God love you!
