Indeed, the raw feelings caused by the abuse scandal has some local Catholics saying that Chaput could still be even more humble.
One group calling itself Catholics4Change questioned the cost of the recent donation-funded trip in which Chaput and top Pennsylvania pols went to Rome, as well as the archbishop’s failure to meet with their protesters outside the Center City cathedral on a recent Sunday.
The group’s leader, Susan Matthews, said that despite his recent remarks on inclusion, she believes that Chaput is still “all about a smaller church, a more pure church.”
I just want to clear up that I never said that the “protestor’s” were “ours.” The group consisted of victims. While they may protest the actions of the Church, I think it’s very important that these people are referred to as victims of the Church. That’s why Archbishop Chaput should have personally greeted them. Also, Catholics4Change is a online forum not a group. I’m humbled by the relationships that have been formed here, but I don’t lay claim to them. Nor, do I claim to be a leader – I’m just a blog publisher. Each and every one of you is a leader in this cause.
