Making it Formal

Perhaps recognizing the right of the faithful to a genuinely Catholic sermon this Good Friday, Cardinal Turcotte has opted not to speak.

But genuinely Catholic preachers being so extremely difficult to come by in Turcotte's diocese, the Anglican bishop of Montreal, Right Rev. Barry Clarke, will deliver the homily during the Good Friday service at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Basilica instead.

Faithful Montreal Catholics confess a certain satisfaction that His Eminence has had the intellectual honesty to begin admitting to his pulpits formal heretics rather than the usual mere material ones.
