From time to time bloggers here at MOJ have commented on the media bias regarding the Church and various legal or criminal cases associated with it. Earlier this week there was a refreshing alternative narrative on the cover of the Washington Post. This story profiles Monsignor Robert Weiss, Pastor of St. Rose of Lima parish in Newtown, Connecticut. Not only was Monsignor Weiss active in responding to this tragedy, he lost ten members of his parish in the carnage. The story echoes a point many of us try to make: the Church is not just the Bishops and Cardinals, but the people on the front lines doing unbelievably challenging work in beautiful ways. They are the hands of Christ.
