I respect Archbishop Tobin for his kindness and courage. I appreciate his Irish mother's wisdom and wit cited in the article above. No wonder Pope Francis was impressed.

 In the dark days of the Vatican investigation, which some called a witch-hunt, Archbishop Tobin stood up for women religious and took the flack from the Sacred Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith. 

This past week, the  cardinal-elect greeted Janice Sevre Duszynska ARCWP by name as she stood witnessing for women priests at the U.S. Bishops Meeting in Baltimore. See story on my blog:
The Inside Story.

I pray that Cardinal Tobin will be blessed and that he will continue to advocate for justice for all on the margins including women in the church. We have a long way to go!
