Transparency and Accountability
“Transparency” and “accountability” have been the watchwords of many, both laity and clergy, who yearn for authentic renewal in the church. Cardinal Sean O’Malley is leading the Archdiocese of Boston to unprecedented financial disclosures that offer promise for the future.
Today’s Boston Globe gives extensive coverage to the matter.
Two initial impressions from those present at yesterday’s meeting with the priests of the Archdiocese.
Gratitude for the generosity and competence of the lay people involved in the audit and studies; and a sense of a newly energized Cardinal ready to draw upon the spiritual and material resources of a troubled, but gifted local church.
