Dolan and Dorothy Day

Jesus answered, "My kingship is not of this world; if my kingship were of this world, my servants would fight, that I might not be handed over to the Jews; but my kingship is not from the world."
-- John 18:36
So Archbishop Timothy Dolan thinks that Dorothy Day should be a saint. I'm sure "Catholics" Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden would agree.

My educated guess is that most Catholics that agree with Abp. Dolan on this will also be voting for Obama.

Dorothy Day was present at Vatican II. She was there to inject her political views into Church documents. She perfectly represents the "social justice" mentality which deliberately chooses to misrepresent the mission of the Church. Yes, we are called to help the poor, but no this is not the primary mission of the Church.

The primary mission is to save souls. Everything that happens in this life is secondary to the eternal life that comes afterwards. We are called to be pilgrims here on earth on a journey towards Heaven.

  2. The Pope definitely "gets it" as you can tell from the previous post. But there are a lot of "bad fish" among the Church leadership who don't seem to realize the damage they are doing to the flock. They want to bring the Church into the "modern times" but it is the role of the Church to change the times, not to be changed by the times. So in many ways, it seems they end up getting it backwards.
