Archbishop Chaput: Makes the NYT List!

First, let me explain that I really like, respect and appreciate all the many things Archbishop Charles Chaput has done for his flock in Northern Colorado. we only lived there for two years -- but were IMMENSELY impressed with his shepherd ways.

This is a man who is small in physical stature but a giant in spiritual leadership. He takes on the wrong-doers and commends those who are trying to do the good. He is humble enough to throw out a pitch at a Rockies home-game (where they got creamed!) and man enough to go toe-to-toe with "Catholic" dems like Nancy Pelosi.

I'm a big fan. And the family and I keep him in our prayers even though we are no longer his Colorado sheep.
Knowing how erudite is the good Archbishop and further, knowing that he thinks, meditates, prays and thinks some more before writing a word -- this book is a must-read for all those wanting to be good Catholics and still "render unto Caesar".

Congratulations, Archbishop Chaput on yet another job well-done -- his earlier book, Living the Catholic Faith: Rediscovering the Basics is an amazing example of his cutting through the rhetoric to get to the heart of the issues.
I'll have Paul smoke a cigar for this latest!
