Rah, rah, sis boom bah. Are you feeling it? The Archidiocese of Philadelphia hopes so. They will be announcing the details of the World Meeting of Families for September 2015 during a press conference later today. I’m sure they want this to serve as a pep rally for area Catholics beleaguered by the priest pedophile coverups of the past and current scandals.
“This forthcoming international event has the power to transform, in deeply positive ways, not just the Catholic Church, but also our entire community. At the conclusion of tomorrow’s news conference, you will be provided with additional information. Please pray for the success of our endeavors as we continue to plan the World Meeting of Families—Philadelphia and prepare for our city and region to be on the world stage next year,” wrote Kenneth Gavin, director of Communications.
I can think of a few more immediate ways to transform the Catholic Church and the entire community. What about you?
