More swipes and theology from the [i]Globe[/i]

Apparently it’s just too easy to take swipes at Cardinal Law now that he’s gone. In this article on Bishop O’Malley’s installation, they want to contrast his simplicity with Cardinal Law’s ... what? He’s described as imperious, phony, pompous, you name it. “But O’Malley apparently is less interested in being surrounded by princes of the church than his predecessor.” They can’t resist attackng him even though he’s gone.

I like this bit of theology from the Boston Globe:

Yesterday, Law’s seal was still over the cathedral. It reads, in Latin: “To live is Christ.” Coyne said he did not think O’Malley’s seal would be done in time for his installation. O’Malley’s seal, taken from a Gospel verse about obedience, translates as: “Do whatever he tells you.”

To say it’s a verse about obedience is a little reductionist. It is Mary’s instruction to the waiters at the wedding at Cana to trust in Jesus, just as she trusts in Him, to take care of their needs. It’s not strictly about obedience, it’s about abandonment to the Divine Mercy.
