Look Up!

I am never sure how many people read only the on-line version of this magazine and others read only the print magazine. If you fall into the former category, look up on the mainpage and you will see a beautiful picture of the baldachino in St. Peter's in Rome. There is also a link to an article I have in the current print issue about retrieving some practices from the past to better enflesh a "hermeneutic of continuity" regarding the Second Vatican Council's teaching on episcopal collegiality. It is nice to write an article that does not mention Obama or the GOP or health care and I hope you all enjoy it.
