Today I went to the noon Mass celebrated by His Eminence Francis Cardinal Arinze. His Eminence gave a great homily on scandal in the Church. He said that beginning with Judas Iscariot and even to this very day, the Church has suffered scandal and hypocrisy. And yet, the Church is still the bride of Christ and His instrument of Presence among us.
Before the Mass, Cardinal Arinze was outside talking to mothers and blessing children. He seemed very joyful and light-hearted.
Tonight, he is giving an address at the University of Dallas, but I was not able to attend.
