Amen to the good Archbishop

Archbishop Chaput of Denver has always impressed me with his faithful shepherding of his flock and his ability to use technology to keep his flock informed.  St. Maximilian Kolbe must be smiling down from heaven whenever Chaput posts his teaching on the internet.
And another great thing about reading his writings, Chaput is very succinct.  As Kevin at New Advent points out,
Archbishop Charles Chaput (Denver) held a town hall meeting on immigration yesterday.  Whatever you think about the rest of his talk, you have to agree that he nailed it on the head with this remark:
The mostly solemn crowd erupted in laughter and applause when Chaput was asked if the government would listen to his church.
He replied, "I don't think the government should listen to the church - the government should listen to the people and the people should listen to the church."
